Get Your Ezio On In Upcoming Final Fantasy XV Assassin’s Festival Event (VIDEO)
In a collaboration event that will shake the heavens (or at least terrify some Templars), Square Enix and Ubisoft have announced new DLC for Final Fantasy XV titled Final Fantasy XV Assassin’s Festival. Apparently 3 years in the making, the event – announced at Gamescom – will pay homage to both game development team’s most popular series, according to Ubisoft game director Ashraf Ismail. “This collaboration is the result of being huge fans,” says Ismail. “There’s a lot of respect between the two teams and we couldn’t be more thrilled with the opportunity to pay homage to each other’s work.”
Seen above, both development teams marked the announcement with a piece of artwork that was just unveiled, featuring Noctis from Final Fantasy XV and Bayek from Assassin’s Creed Origins. Those lucky enough to be at the show were able to get the artwork signed by Ismail, and Final Fantasy XV game director Hajime Tabata. The rundown of the event can be seen below, alongside the reveal trailer for the Final Fantasy XV Assassin’s Festival event.

“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.”
