Ubisoft is creating a much bigger virtual reality experience than expected with Assassin’s Creed Nexus VR. A recent livestream for the upcoming Oculus Quest game has revealed a much longer game than many assumed.
As pointed out on the Oculus Quest subreddit, Assassin’s Creed Nexus VR will have sixteen chapters in its era-spanning single-player campaign. These chapters will each include their own parkour and assassination elements to play.
Fans of the Meta Quest 2 and Meta Quest 3 VR headsets revealed that the game’s content is much bigger than expected. While the game did look impressive before, many assumed the game would be just a few hours long. However, it seems that isn’t the case.
Current expectations put Assassin’s Creed Nexus VR between 10 and 15 hours of gameplay. Spread across multiple eras of the franchise’s 15-year history, players will experience missions as Ezio, Connor and more as they play through the game.
With the recent launch of the Meta Quest 3 and its more advanced tracking and mixed reality systems, there is a lot of hype for the new Assassin’s Creed game. As it turns out, the news that the game is longer than many assumed has only got fans more hyped for the title.
“Very excited for this one, hopefully it's [a] financial success so it shows more big studios it's worth it to make big games for VR,” said one fan on Reddit.
“Not what I was expecting at all. I thought each scenario was gonna have 1 hour each and give us like 4 hours of gameplay,” another fan explained. “This is crazy; so I guess the rumors about 8 to 10 hours are true. People were also saying 15 hours, which I could easily see. Ubisoft isn’t holding back on this one. Just PLEASE don’t be repetitive.”
Assassin’s Creed Nexus VR has been long awaited by fans of the Meta Quest platform. Alongside other proposed Ubisoft games, such as a VR Splinter Cell game, the promise of a true VR AC game has been tantalizing for fans. Thankfully, it looks like Ubisoft has actually pulled it off as well.
Assassin’s Creed Nexus VR launches exclusively on Meta Quest 2 and 3 on November 16th. The game is currently available to wishlist here, but no price has been announced.
