The preeminent gaming studio, Ubisoft’s much loved game Assassin’s Creed gets Smart Collectibles made in collaboration with Integral Reality Labs. IRL’s proprietary Printing On Chain technology will print the 3D figurines that will be authenticated via NFTs.
The company behind the popular games like Just Dance and Far Cry, is taking their play to the next level by launching an Assassin’s Creed smart collectibles that will be authenticated via NFTs.
The collection, called Assassin’s Creed Smart Collectibles, includes NFT access passes minted on the Polygon network and physical collectibles inspired by the game. Owners can authenticate their NFTs for unique 3D-printed artworks representing different heroes from the games, with varying degrees of customization.
Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed Smart Collectibles also have an embedded NFC chip that allows owners to view the digital version of their character through any compatible app on their smartphones, adding another layer of interactivity to the collectibles.
IRL has not yet released any official pricing details, but a pre-sale for the Assassin’s Creed Smart Collectibles began on Friday, with the official launch scheduled to launch on May 16th. Excitement is building among fans as they eagerly await the release of the smart collectibles.
Ubisoft has collaborated with Integral Reality Labs on similar projects before. In the past, they have released customizable 3D printed collectibles based on games like Assassin’s Creed, Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six, and For Honor. Unlike the current collaboration, however, the previous release did not feature a digital tie-in.
Ubisoft has shown a strong interest in NFTs, as evidenced by its recent releases. In 2021, the company released Tezos-based weapons and asset skins as in-game NFT items for Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint on PC.
