Gaming fans are just realising they can play the unreleased Assassin’s Creed game for FREE – here’s how


UBISOFT is looking for people to playtest its upcoming Assassin’s Creed game.

It made the call during the recent Ubisoft Forward where more footage was shown of upcoming games from its studios.

Codename Jade will be set in feudal China.

Assassin’s Creed Codename Jade is an upcoming mobile game based in a time between Odyssey and Origins.

It takes place in China during the Qing Dynasty, the first feudal dynasty in China.

Despite moving to mobile for the first time, Jade has been designed for this platform from the start, meaning it is better optimised.

The team has considered how to transfer classic Assassin’s Creed gameplay onto mobile controls, but there is always the possibility that they miss the mark.

That’s why Ubisoft is making an open call for playtesters so that feedback can be gathered on the game.

The playtest will take place during the summer, and is a closed beta test for Assassin’s Creed’s biggest fans.

In order to sign up you need to go to the official Codename Jade website and register your email address.

You will receive a code via email that you can then use to register for the closed beta.

If you are accepted into the closed beta, you will receive an email with further instructions closer to the release.

There are no confirmed dates for the beta, but it is expected over the next few months.

Despite having a beta, Assassin’s Creed Codename Jade will still have a single-player story the series is known for.

The beta isn’t particularly to test servers like many playtests, but more to see if the changes Ubisoft has made to adapt the series to mobile are appropriate.

Codename Jade is still in early development, but the playtest will hopefully help Ubisoft know if they’re on the right track.
