What unholy alliance is this!?
In a surprising twist of events, two popular franchises will collaborate to make the next DLC for Final Fantasy XV, and it will come from none other than Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed! Here’s the trailer:
Yes I’m surprised as you are.
The event will start on August 30, here’s what Ubisoft has to say from their blog:
The collaboration kicks off on August 30, as Final Fantasy XV players who have obtained the Dream Egg from the Moogle Chocobo Carnival event will be gifted a very familiar Assassin outfit for Noctis. The very next day, August 31, will be the release of the free Assassin’s Festival DLC for Final Fantasy XV. The town of Lestallum will transform itself for the event with signs and banners signaling the arrival of the festival, and new activities will be available for players to participate in. It doesn’t end there. The Assassin’s Festival will have some additional themed items and features, including another outfit from Assassin’s Creed, along with abilities that enable Noctis to explore more like an Assassin and even use some of the Assassins’ more well-known abilities.
If you guys remember, this is actually not the first time AC partnered with Square Enix. Ubisoft previously rubbed elbows with another FF game – Final Fantasy XIII-2 with a DLC costume inspired again by Assassin’s Creed.
Now’s how’s about Square Enix turn things around and give AC some Final Fantasy lovin’ in the future? I guess we’ll have to wait and see folks!
