Ubisoft has announced that Assassin’s Creed Nexus VR is now available to play exclusively on the Meta Quest Platform, including Meta Quest 2, Meta Quest 3, and Meta Quest Pro devices.

As the first VR title in the Assassin’s Creed franchise, Assassin’s Creed Nexus VR allows players to experience what’s it’s like stepping into the shoes of some of the franchise’s most popular Assassins, namely, Ezio Auditore, Kassandra, and Connor, all of whom are now featured in a new story that revolves around a hacker protagonist.

Here’s are some of the story and gameplay details for the new VR title, which was developed by Ubisoft’s Red Storm:

…players will be able to embody in First Person three different assassins, across three different time periods and physically perform Iconic Assassin’s Creed Actions, like wielding the Hidden Blade, exploring the cities from above with parkour, engaging in combat and mastering stealth. In Assassin’s Creed Nexus VR, the player is an elite hacker undercover for the Brotherhood and working for Abstergo. Under the command of Dominika Wilk, an Abstergo’s executive voiced and portrayed by Morena Baccarin, they will delve into the memories of three iconic assassins -Ezio Auditore da Firenze, Connor Kenway and Kassandra- who have crossed paths with the artifacts Abstergo seeks.

With development led by Ubisoft Red Storm, Assassin’s Creed Nexus will let players choose how to achieve their objectives as they make their way through open maps and use their hands to block, parry, counterattack, and duel a variety of enemies. Assassin’s Creed Nexus VR is a full-length Assassin’s Creed game that features all of the iconic gameplay from the series, including parkour, combat, stealth and the dazzling leap of faith, all with an entirely new story, only available in VR.

Ubisoft has also confirmed that players will be able to visit each of the character’s respective settings, including the capital of Greece for Kassandra, who fans last saw in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla:

Assassin’s Creed Nexus VR brings players back to three iconic settings from the Franchise where they will discover untold stories about Ezio in the Italian Renaissance, Kassandra in an Athens ruled by the “Thirty Tyrants” and Connor during the American Revolution, to uncover the secrets concealed in their memories.

Assassin’s Creed Nexus VR is available through the Meta Quest Store page for $39.99, while the Meta Quest 3, Meta’s latest headset, starts at $499.99.

Ubisoft has also shared an interview with some of Red Storm’s staff, including Creative Director David Votypka, who explained how players can activate the Hidden Blade just by flicking their wrist.
