Assassin’s Creed Jade: Expected release date and the latest rumors
Assassin’s Creed Jade is one of the most anticipated games in the Assassin’s Creed series. Ubisoft, known for open-world games on PC and consoles, partnered with Tencent’s Level Infinite to develop Assassin’s Creed Jade. It’s the company’s first creation of an Assassin’s Creed title specifically for iOS and Android. Thanks to Ubisoft Forward Live 2023, we finally have more information regarding the latest Assassin’s Creed franchise.
When is Assassin’s Creed: Jade coming out?
Ubisoft first teased the Assassin’s Creed: Jade on September 10, 2022. It went through the alpha stage of testing between December 15-22. The company released another trailer for Assassin’s Creed: Jade during the Ubisoft Forward event on June 12, 2023.

Assassin’s Creed: Jade gameplay and story
While we have yet to take Assassin’s Creed: Jade for a spin, Ubisoft has spread some beans about the story and gameplay. It takes us back to Ancient China in 215 B.C. The gameplay is right between the events of Assassin’s Creed Origins and Assassin’s Odyssey.
You step into the shoes of Xia, an adopted son of the emperor Wei Yu. The game is packed with combat fights, long-range attacks with bow and arrow, and more. You also have the option to customize Xia’s look – a first in the Assassin’s Creed franchise. However, we are still unclear about the customization options. The options can only be limited to preset faces and a few cosmetic items.
You have the responsibility of protecting your home (Xionanu) from raiders. Assassin’s Creed: Jade will take you through new rivals, dangerous conspiracies, and several landscapes, such as the Great Wall of China and the imperial capital of Xianyang. It will be interesting to see how Ubisoft incorporates the entire experience with touchscreen controls on a smartphone.
