Ubisoft, the renowned gaming studio, has announced the launch of its Assassin’s Creed NFT collection in collaboration with Integral Reality Labs, a popular action series, to reach a range of web 3 gaming publishers.
Ubisoft, the company behind popular games such as Just Dance and Far Cry, is diversifying its NFT offerings by launching an Assassin’s Creed hybrid NFT collection called Assassin’s Creed Smart Collectibles, which includes NFT access passes minted on the Polygon network and inspired physical collectibles. The owners of these NFTs will be able to redeem them for unique 3D-printed artworks that represent different heroes from the game. The level of customization will be determined by the rarity level of the NFT.
Owners of the Assassin’s Creed Smart Collectibles NFTs can customize their collectibles with outfits and weapons during the waiting period for shipping, however, this customization option will no longer be available once they are printed and shipped.
The Assassin’s Creed Smart Collectibles NFTs come in varying rarity levels, with higher tiers providing greater customization capabilities to the owners. Each NFT also comes with an embedded NFC chip that allows for interactive viewing of the digital version of the character via any compatible app on their smartphones.
Although Ubisoft has not disclosed any official pricing details for Assassin’s Creed Smart Collectibles, it has started a pre-sale on Friday, with the official mint launch scheduled for May 16th. Fans are eagerly awaiting the release of the NFT collection.
Ubisoft has worked with Integral Reality Labs on similar projects before. In the past, they released customizable 3D-printed collectibles based on games like Assassin’s Creed, Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six, and For Honor. However, the previous release did not feature a digital tie-in.
Ubisoft has showcased a strong interest in NFTs as evidenced by its recent work. The company has released Tezos-based weapons and asset skins as in-game NFT items for Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint on PC. It has also ventured into creating spinoffs and experiments based on its popular franchises, including the One Shot League, a fantasy soccer game that uses NFTs. Furthermore, Ubisoft has collaborated with UNICEF on an NFT experiment based on the Rabbids franchise. The company has sold over 200 million copies of its Assassin’s Creed video game series since its debut in 2007.
