Assassin’s Creed Nexus VR brings with it a lot of firsts, which is particularly exciting for long-term fans of the series. Not only is this the first Assassin’s Creed game in VR, as well as the first first-person Assassin’s Creed game, but it’s also the first title to feature three playable Assassins from different eras.

We learned plenty about Assassin’s Creed Nexus VR at the Ubisoft Forward event in June 2023, so here’s a rundown of all of that information, including gameplay details and what platforms to expect the game on.

Assassin’s Creed Nexus VR gameplay details

In an extended gameplay trailer for Assassin’s Creed Nexus VR, we got a glimpse of what it will be like to play this exciting new title. What excites us most is that we’re able to play as Connor, Ezio, and Kassandra - all within their respective time periods.

Featuring first-person gameplay, players will be able to parkour around 15th-century Venice, ancient Greece, or during the American Civil War. Iconic weapons such as the Tomahawk Axe, a bow, and hidden blades can all be seen in effect.

It looks as though missions will be structured around identifying enemies and taking them out in creative ways. Combat seems fairly intuitive, too, with weapons and gadgets all placed around the body of the player to be grabbed at will.

Of course, there are leaps of faith, too. We’re not looking forward to trying that part of the game out quite as much, despite Ubisoft promising accessibility features aplenty.

There is currently only one trailer revealed for Assassin’s Creed Nexus VR so far, and it’s the one shown at the Ubisoft Forward 2023 event. Here, we get a taste of what the gameplay will be like, as well as a title screen revealing the platforms that the game will be available on.

Assassin’s Creed Nexus VR platforms

While there are a couple of different VR platforms for players to choose from these days, Assassin’s Creed Nexus VR will only be available on Meta Quest devices. 

It’s not yet confirmed whether fans will be able to load up the game on PSVR2, or any other third-party VR device. At the moment, it’s a VR exclusive to Meta headsets only.

That’s it for everything we know about Assassin’s Creed Nexus VR so far. For more information on Assassin’s Creed, keep reading GGRecon.
