Earlier this month, Square Enix and Ubisoft surprise announced a collaboration between Final Fantasy XV and the upcoming Assassin's Creed Origins. That update is finally live as players can now play the "Assassin's Festival" event which basically lets the FFXV boys roleplay their favorite assassins.
Yesterday, a new 1.15 update went live which added various Assassin's Creed goods into the game, including transforming the city of Lestallum to celebrate the Assassin's Festival. The update doesn't only give Noctis and crew Assassin's gear to walk around in, but also Assassin abilities like Eagle Dives, stealth kills, and some parkour. The event is scheduled to run until January 31 2018.
Ubisoft and Square Enix, apparently fans of each other company's works, first discussed the possibility of a collaboration before Assassin's Creed Origins was even announced. Apparently, there are even subtle hints of their collaboration within various trailers, though I still haven't noticed any.
The update actually also adds other features and improvements to FFXV, including the bestiary which records and adds lore for all the animals that you encountered in the game.
So log on now and check out the 4GB update for Final Fantasy XV, and get busy assassinating.
