Final Fantasy XV x Assassin’s Creed collaboration announced By Erren Van Duine on August 24, 2017 at 12:14 PM

Well what do you know, Final Fantasy is teaming up with Assassin’s Creed again. The announcement revealed today by Ubisoft and Square Enix details a set of homages that will cater to each other’s universes.

The collaboration officially kicks off (in FFXV) on August 30 for players who obtained the Dream Egg from the Moogle Chocobo Carnival event. Those who have this item will be granted access to a “Master Assassin’s Robe” outfit for Noctis.

Then on August 31 the free Assassin’s Festival DLC for Final Fantasy XV will drop. Here, the town of Lestallum will transform itself with signs and banners and new activities will be available for players to participate in.

The Assassin’s Festival will have some additional themed items and features such as another outfit from Assassin’s Creed and abilities that enable Noctis to explore like an Assassin and use some of the Assassins’ more well-known abilities.

Catch the trailer below.

    I enjoy the AC series (most of the time) so I think I’ll enjoy this. Also now I know what the damn dream egg was for. Kinda hope they keep the AC parkour for the main game. (I know they won’t but it’s nice to dream)

  • A Leon

    Why wasn’t the whole “Stopping Loqi and kicking the Empire out of the city” part of the main game? It serves as perfect side-quest fodder and actually gives a once off villain a viable role while illustrating how the Empire messed with the rest of the world.

  • Artemis_Polara

    I agree

  • Serj_Angelo

    Like.. I guess I should be surprised but I’m really not.
    At least it’s free but if this is the “secret awesome expansion” Tabata was talking about, I’d be let down (or maybe not).

  • Artemis_Polara

    I know it’s a little overplayed but I kinda wish it was Ezio’s outfit (from II or brotherhood) instead of Altair’s.

  • Syul

    Nah, this wouldn’t count as a secret expansion, I think. I mean, this is just an event, and not even DLCs count as expansions, so I guess we’ll have to wait to know more. Hoping for info to come out on TGS >_<

  • Syul

    I think I’m going to have fun with this event, to be honest. New scenes, more Loqi (YESSS), badass outfits, and going all acrobatic over Lestallum? Well, just count me in xD

    I’ve wanted to play an AC for ages but haven’t done so, which probably means I’m going to play all clumsy xDDDD But I have the impression it’s going to be interesting~

  • stevenm281

    With this, they could easily develop the real attack on Lestallum where Jared got killed, and add it to the main game featuring Iris as the playable character… but they wont…

    So far, everything they develop that is worth it, is separated from the main game instead of being put into it…. such a shame.

  • aquapyro

    Im expecting a Monster Hunter Collab in the works.

  • Randy Marsh

    Okay I’ll bite, this looks pretty neato.

  • Ray Rothwell

    I think I’d be concerned if my town was hosting an “Assassin Festival.” You can bet I wouldn’t be attending.

  • Vallen

    This is so random… but I’ll bite. Jesus, dammit Tabata, you weird man.

  • NoctLightCloud

    Oh nice costume though! Loved Noel’s costume back in the days.

  • NoctLightCloud

    I recommend AC 2, AC Revelations or AC Black Flag ^^ the latter is my favourite~

  • stevenm281

    Black Flag and AC2 are so dope!!!

  • x5kevleo

    Well, at least is free!. I’m still waiting for those cutscenes.

  • •december

    Cool.
    Time to play tf out of this…
    I’m getting Assassin’s Creed Egypt and I’m a big AC fan, nicely done.

  • •december

    lol

  • Games Das

    Assassin’s Creed Ezio Collection triology is the true masterpiece in Ubisoft’s history.I really loved it.

  • Games Das

    This is perhaps the craziest thing to happen in gaming history,well at least according to me.Could someone please explain what is this supposed to mean?

  • Games Das

    FFXV has completely gone off the topic.I guess that survey page was not just for show.An age old franchise now needs Ubisoft’s help to strive in the business,sad.

  • •december

    Who cares what it means lol
    Atleast its a good partnership unlike the shit we’ve had so far

  • Games Das

    Do you remember the survey page that we filled up a few months back?I wonder what happened to it or they just cancelled it.

  • Games Das

    That would have been better,I suppose.

  • alef321

    YAMERO.

    GIVE US VS 13.

  • Syul

    Thanks for the recommendations! 😀

  • stevenm281

    played them on PS3, didnt feel the need to replay them on PS4.

    But for those who missed the original release of these titles, the collection is a must!

  • Soldier Blue

    They must have some crazy good dope at the Square-enix offices.

  • stevenm281

    Even their Chocobo Carnival event could have been reworked to be in the main game, where Noctis and Luna could have had a date together before meeting her fate, but no…

  • no

  • FINAL FANTASY has lost it’s soul

  • that was just to instill the idea upon the people who took the survey that they give a damn about what people think when they really do not

  • the developers of this game have lost the plot

  • just as an aside, I do not get why there was so much uprear in regards to A New Empire being a ponzy scheme, the whole FINAL FANTASY XV Universe is nothing but a money grab

  • Artemis_Polara

    After having a few hours to process this. I’m still fine with it. Honestly even though from the outside it looks ridiculous, it doesn’t break the lore at all. Loqi actually survived the encounter with Cor (he shows up in another mech during the optional base raid).
    This would’ve been something they had to have been working on before the survey was even released. Also about the survey, I don’t expect anything from that until after Episode Ignis comes out. Anything before would just be small stuff like they have been patching in so far: cutscenes, small story segments, quests, a new mechanic or two, etc.
    In the long run I’m expecting them to do a second season pass for next year or a full priced expansion pack.
    Regardless while I still have my share of complaints towards the story, it’s not going to get in my way of enjoying this stuff. I mean really, stop taking this stuff so seriously. Might as well throw the term purists out there at this point.
    But regardless I welcome any criticisms of my points. 🙂
    Have a nice day

  • stevenm281

    you got nothing to be criticized about 🙂

  • stevenm281

    probably because it was never their plot to begin with

  • they could have made a better plot though

    but what I really meant with that comment is that I think that the development team is bat #### crazy to pass this content off as ‘FINAL FANTASY content’

    They have completely lost it, this is not FINAL FANTASY, in my opinion, certainly not akin to the golden era of the franchise, but that has long passed so

  • Lucas Nóbrega Maia

    I agree completely with you , many os FF Fandom is toxic , they could not let themselves have some fun with this little updates , while asking for the next numered title , forgetting that aside for FF7R , which is done by a completely different team in which would not have any contact with each other per that Business Division stuff , it will take 3 to 4 years.

  • Lucas Nóbrega Maia

    It’s something that will be implemented little by little, but people thinks that FFXV’s team could give that like magic in just two months……..
    “Implemented magic system” and “World of Ruin” will come inside Comrade’s DLC (which will be free) , probably “Past Kings” , Ifrit and Episode Ardyn will be fusioned too in another DLC.

  • Yuntu

    I doubt this is what he meant. They said they had a secret DLC they would reveal soonish this was probably that.

    I think we will hear something about the expansion either late 2017 or early 2018. Wouldn´t be surprised if that one touches upon everything people complained about in some fashion, but that´s just speculation.

  • Yuntu

    Those “move on SE” comments are just … ugh. Like do these people think everyone at SE only works on XV until all the patches are done or what? Do they not understand how companies work?

    Hell probably the XV team itself is split into multiple smaller teams. One probably working on DLC, one on free updates, one on events etc.

  • Yuntu

    Yeah this free DLC is draining my money away.

  • Gabriel Hage

    Facepalm

  • Lucas Nóbrega Maia

    exactly!
    Square Enix have 7 to 10 inside development teams , those so called “Business Division” , together with only God knows how many smaller studios (one example is Tokyo Factory with their “I am Setsuna”).
    One Business Division is exclusively creating FF7R , another one is creating KH , the same goes with DQ’s team , FF14’s and Nier’s.
    The only Business Division that were “joined” were the Moebius’s one with the FF7R’s , only because it doesn’t need much work for updating Moebius Final Fantasy.
    Next year or so those purist will receive their FF7R

  • Artemis_Polara

    I think Noctis is riding a black Chocobo (it’s hard to tell from the lighting) (Definitely would like to get one since it fits much more than the grey one I mostly use)

  • the part where I wrote “just as an aside” means nothing to you does it(?), I will give you a pass based on the assumption that English is your second language

    ‘Just as an aside’ means that the person speaking is about to mention something that has little to do with the topic at hand

  • Yuntu

    Thank you for your gracious pass. I could bother to explain to you why what you said is wrong but you would probably only focus on finding mistakes in my grammar instead of reading and understanding it.

  • Artemis_Polara

    No need to make this a fight. Just stick to your points and move on. 🙂

  • Yuntu

    I learned to just ignore people that give me responses like this (not meant towards your response, but his).

  • Artemis_Polara

    No worries 🙂

  • touché

    … that is French but you get what mean

  • Wazi the pa

    I don’t know what to feel anymore….

  • Games Das

    Heh Heh…I am thinking of uninstalling the game and save some space on the PS4 Pro for a few upcoming titles.

  • Third World Tristan

    Do it.

  • Third World Tristan

    People who are fine with this are the cancer cells of gaming. May you all find a different hobby.

  • Breathless

    Was my sentiment exactly just after finishing XV itself months ago. These utterly random tacked-on pieces certainly don’t help that feeling. :/

  • Syul

    It’s sad and upsetting calling “cancer cells of gaming” to those of us that just happen to have a different opinion and like this, but it’s even worse after you see that 2 people agree with that.

    I understand the point of those who don’t like this crossover, even if I don’t really share it, but gods… Really? Calling some people “cancer cells of gaming” because they disagree about A VIDEOGAME (which is, as you said, a hobby)?

    Just how much can it possibly hurt you that people you don’t know enjoy something as trivial as a videogame content you don’t like, that you’ll end up saying that…?

  • Third World Tristan

    People like you destroyed gaming. Get out of my internet face.

  • Syul

    Respect for videogames over respect for people it is, I guess?

    Welp… No point in trying to talk with you it seems, since your posts indicate that, sadly, you justify your position with that insulting comparison.

  • xMysticx

    whats next FFXV x Persona 5 ?
    lol this is waaaay out of hand …

    but, at this point its ridiculous . are you fine with this too ?

  • •december

    So the Dream Egg actually wasn’t useless in the end!
    We’ll finally be getting closure
    and I’ll finally be getting to see Noctis in that there Master Assassin’s outfit.
    Bring it on.

  • •december

    They haven’t cancelled it lol it was online for like a whole month, or so, the results we might never get – but its likely they’re going to hit us with some big updates (Sept-Nov) in the run-down to Episode Ignis (December)

  • NewestType

    I had a feeling they would do something sneaky like this. YOU know you were never gonna get rid of fat egg!

  • NewestType

    They did this with other ff games in the past just … odd. For example FF7 & Sprite, FF8 & Toyota, FF9 and Coke-a-cola. XIII was also in collaboration with Assasins creed as Serah and Noel can dawn the assasin’s garb as well.

    My 2 takeaways:
    1. Glad the collaboration is an in-game item and not another Toyota vehicle.
    2. It’s free…

  • NewestType

    Have you seen collaborations in Japan? way more frequent.
    I am glad that things like this happen. Also, consumers don’t really care…

  • NewestType

    TBH i think his anger is clouding his logic. Theres not liking something and then theres attributing an effect to it that’s not possible.

  • NewestType

    Are you people this sympathetic about a video game?

    maybe Nova Crystallis should start expanding it’s articles to media and movies. Steer away from always doing video games maybe?

  • NewestType

    I dont understand that people are not able to finish the ending of the game and know the difference between story content and collaboration. The game has been out… most people have beaten it… these are just fun additions. I usually hack my games when i beat them anyway and XV is no exception. I added Bahamut’s sword to noctis also.But, i dont lose my mind and say: that shouldnt be there! It’s just fun.

    “Listen girlfriend, there was the heffa that tried to steal my parking spot at IHOP. But i didnt trip out! I merely waited, and exhaled.”

  • NewestType

    Well!

    Let’s be fair, do all companies have as many divisions as Square? Maybe they(SQUARE) are kinda different to what people are used to(?) so they assume that it’s just one team(?)

  • NewestType

    It’s funny how much people bitch about this stuff.

    I’m reminded of how everyone loves FFXII now. Or how everyone says they DO like silent hill 4 now. or that they ALWAYS liked resident evil 3 with jill.

    These people are just bandwagoners i think. Usually hating FF XII, while now they like it cause other people like it. So many (we were wrong) youtube videos about silent hill 4. and in comparison to RE6/RE7. Resident Evil 3 is traditional Capcom(meaning “Fans” have to say it’s good now). I remeber people said RE3 was not a true RE game…
    I believe people with that mindset also only watch American Idol beacuse it was popular. Not because they actually like singing…

    There Fadsters 🙂

    When are gamers gonna learn how the economy works….
    Never? oh okay.

  • NewestType

    They call it money.

  • NewestType

    Wow nobody remebers how cool Noel looked in this theme.

    Oh well.

  • Yuntu

    Yes all big companies have that. Only thaz SE simply calls em Business Divisions and for others they would just be different studios within the company.

  • Lucas Nóbrega Maia

    I understand their claims about somethings needs to improve , but that doesn’t means they should put some stuffs just for fun.
    Like it was said before , probably XV’s team is divided between many sub-teams , each one of them creating something that extends this game’s cycle.
    I do not doubt that if XV’s team focused entirely for their story content DLC , people would still be bitching that “they sould put more updates until DLC’s release”.
    Personally , I don’t like to wait for December to finally wait Episode Ignis , but that decision was technical , not a emocional one.

  • xMysticx

    1- i didnt deny the collab HOWEVER i repeat HOWEVER in FFXV’s case it’s too much and people are trying to voice they’re tired of it .

    2- if you say it’s free sure it is but, are you aware of it ? it’s an advertisement for assains creed = $$$$$$$ so it doesnt matter if its free or not you are playing a commercial .

  • stevenm281

    Noel looked cool, they look ridiculous.

    Unity or Syndicate outfits would have fit the world better.

  • stevenm281

    Actually the assassin garb was just for Noel, its from Mass Effect that they both had the garb.

  • CallMeGod

    LMAO Another piece of garbage DLC that show FF15 was just an incomplete garbage game.

  • Wazi the pa

    What? l’m actually fine with the content they’re putting out.

  • eijin_kiver

    So, Bayek will use engine blade, gladio shield, riding chocobo and fight Behemoth? (based on poster?)

  • Krijn van Alten

    Well, if there are so much people working at SE on different projects, then show them to us? XVI, where are you?

  • Soldier Blue

    Money and blow go hand in hand. Oftentimes it is what bridges the dope and the doper, what conducts the blow to the sniffer.

  • I am a little bit lost, I do not follow why you decided to post a variety of ways the word ‘aside’ can be used in reply to my previous comment

    ‘as and aside’ is an idiom that has meaning behind it, it does not matter what the definitions of each individual word in an idiom means because idioms do not necessarily follow the logical coherence that you would take from your average phrase, when a phrase is composed in the order of an idiom it assumes a meaning that may be completely separate from the definition of the individual words that it is compose of (e.g. “what ever ‘floats your boat'”)

    what you just did would be the same thing as someone giving examples for the various ways in which the word ‘holiday’ can be used for the idiom “are you having ‘a bus man’s holiday’?” which refers to someone who does the exact same thing on their time off as they do at work

  • Loganight

    it’s free, it’s coming soon, and it looks fun to play

    i can’t complain

  • •december

    2 days…

  • •december

    Guilty

  • Noctis Leonhart Strife

    What makes me sad is that Square-enix does not seem to want to hear the fans. They totally ignore what we want, what the FF community screams every day. They do stupid polls, they pretend not to know the fan’s criticism of the game. We’re not liking the way the game was conducted, an incomplete story and hundreds of DLCs that do not have the expected quality. Instead of listening to the community they put a lot of things we did not ask for. Okay, it was cool to AC DLC, I’m going to play the same way. But people wanted more cutcenes on the story .. Unfortunately they are not willing to. Tabata does not like me as a director.

  • •december

    Ok let say they stopped updating the game.
    Who’s going to play the big DLCs when they do drop?
    (these things take time)

    If nothing came out between here and episode Ignis…
    …what would make me bother coming back to the game at all ?
    They’re working on implementing the survey feedback.

  • stevenm281

    But the survey was a bit misleading, we all thought it would be additions to the main game, but they announced at Gamescom that the two winners of the survey are Ardyn’s Past (1st) and Lunafreya’s activities (2nd).

    However, they cannot do a DLC for Ardyn as they have too much to show, so they’re deciding between a full new game, a movie, or a comic. While it will definitely be interesting and fun, its not meant to enhance the main FF15 game at all.

    Thus they are making a DLC for Luna. But will they do it like a character episode or new cutscenes to the main game?

  • Noctis Leonhart Strife

    I do not have any hope for this game anymore. I think that after the Ignis episode they should close the updates. Square Enix has to leave soon for the sixteenth, and forget that confused era of the series that were those years from FFXIII until the XV.

  • Breathless

    Oh wow, this is new to me. Disappointing all around, I suppose. :/

  • •december

    oh yes, i heard about that news
    tbh bring it
    I welcome all adaptations because i want to understand this beautiful game i played
