In a groundbreaking collaboration, Integral Reality Labs and Ubisoft, the esteemed French video game developer known for iconic titles like Far Cry and Just Dance, have come together to introduce the world to the Assassin’s Creed Smart Collectibles.
Enzio, Altair, and other beloved characters from the Assassin’s Creed franchise are stepping into the realm of web3 with these innovative collectibles. These unique items take the form of NFT access passes accompanied by tangible 3D-printed memorabilia, drawing inspiration from the acclaimed game series.
The core of the Assassin’s Creed Smart Collectibles lies in the “Digital Soul” NFT, which allows individuals to personalize and exchange it for a physical collectible featuring a character from the game, encased in a transparent cube. Prior to the production and delivery of the physical collectible, owners have the opportunity to select from a range of apparel, weaponry, and stances to further customize their piece.
Different tiers of rarity within the NFTs unlock access to more extensive customization options for the corresponding tangible collectibles. Embedded with a near-field communication (NFC) chip, the collectibles enable owners to view a digital representation of the character through a companion app, providing additional functionalities and benefits tied to the initiative.
While the pricing details for the Smart Collectibles are yet to be revealed, a pre-sale is set to launch prior to the official minting on May 16. Ubisoft has confirmed the licensing agreement with Integral Reality Labs, ensuring the authenticity of the venture.
By offering these Smart Collectibles, Ubisoft provides avid fans of the Assassin’s Creed series with a unique opportunity to own a piece of the gaming universe while simultaneously participating in the exciting NFT market. Although the reception among fans remains uncertain, Ubisoft’s esteemed reputation within the Web3 community guarantees a considerable level of anticipation and enthusiasm surrounding these innovative collectibles.
