Ubisoft is launching new Assassin’s Creed smart collectible NFTs. Created in Partnership with Integral Reality Labs, the new NFTs come with access to a 3D-printed collectible. Upon purchasing a Digital Soul NFT, users can customise and redeem a 3D-printed assassin from one of the games, suspended in a clear cube.
NFT owners can choose from a variety of weapons and outfits. Additionally, the user can select the figure’s pose before having it shipped to them. Upon receiving their smart collectible, digital soul owners can access unique interactions through the IRL companion app. Each collectible includes a near-field communication chip that allows the NFT holder to view a digital version of their assassin within the companion app by tapping the figure with their phone.
The Assassin’s Creed smart collectible NFTs come in various tiers. The Pieces of Eden Pass is a limited-edition tier that entitles the buyer to a unique limited-edition digital soul and access to exclusive drops. In addition, owners of the Pieces of Eden Pass NFTs will get their 3D-printed keepsakes shipped out sooner. The Pieces of Eden Passes drop May 30th at 9 am Pacific Standard Time. However, details such as pricing have yet to be released.
Assassin’s Creed is one of Ubisoft’s most successful franchises. Each game centres around an assassin attempting to thwart a group of evildoers. Last year Ubisoft celebrated the series’ 15th anniversary with the release of The Making of Assassin’s Creed: 15th Anniversary Edition Book. The previous game in the franchise, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla released in 2020. However, a new title, Assassin’s Creed Mirage, is currently under development.
NFTs and Gaming
Gaming NFTs are likely to become more popular with time. In fact, Sony recently shared an NFT-related patent showing its plans to launch an infrastructure through which gamers could transfer NFTs over video game platforms.
