Netflix makes a great deal with Ubisoft on a new exclusive Assassin’s Creed game

Netflix has seen its first subscriber losses in the past few quarters and that has led to the power of streaming launching a host of new ventures. Some, like creating an ad-supported tier, won’t do anything to make current subscribers happier, but maybe some free games could help? Netflix is ​​expanding its range of mobile games with a new Ubisoft partnership. Under the agreement, Ubisoft will make three games for Netflix, including an Assassin’s Creed title.

Ubisoft has already partnered with Netflix to make an Assassin’s Creed series, but the announcement did not specify whether the new game will be based on that content. Before we see the Assassin’s Creed game, there are two more titles coming as part of the deal. The first will be Valiant Hearts 2 in January 2023. This is, of course, a sequel to the original Valiant Hearts. Like the first installment, it is a cinematic puzzle game set in the First World War. The second product of the deal will be the hack-and-slash “roguelite” Mighty Quest for Epic Loot, which will arrive later in 2023.

The fact that we have 2023 dates for those games and nothing specific to Assassin’s Creed suggests it may not launch until 2024. So, it would seem Netflix plans to keep the bundled gaming initiative at least that long. Previous reports have said that less than 1% of Netflix subscribers are taking advantage of free mobile games. The lineup currently includes a few Stranger Things titles, a racing game from the Asphalt franchise, the Exploding Kittens card game, and more.

Netflix subscribers don’t have to pay any extra to get these games – simply download them from the App Store or Google Play Store on your mobile device and verify your Netflix account. It will be no in-app purchases either, which is refreshing. This alone might make the Assassin’s Creed game a little more interesting. Ubisoft is more dependent than most publishers on microtransactions in its games. A premium AC experience without any of that might be interesting, even if it’s on a smartphone.

In addition to expanding its game offerings, Netflix is ​​planning the aforementioned ad-supported tier. This plan will be cheaper than the basic plan, but it likely won’t include all of Netflix’s content. Access to the game library is unknown, but it wouldn’t be surprising to see them limited to more expensive subscriptions.
