C., completing the timeline between Assassin’s Creed Odyssey Y origins, and it’s designed to feel like a main entrance, parkour and all. There is no release date yet and all Ubisoft has shown is the classic sequence of the eagle flying over a settlement.
One thing we know about Jade is that it will support the ability to create your own character, a first for the series. There is no word on pricing or possible microtransactions for the game.
