A collaboration between Krafton and Ubisoft brings Assassin’s Creed cosmetics and other AC content to the world of PUBG.
Imagine, if you will, Ezio Auditore da Firenze silently descending on his prey from the rooftops of Renaissance Italy – but instead of plunging his infamous wrist dagger into their necks, he smashes them to pieces with a cast-iron frying pan. Impossible? Well, yes, at least in the game, but no longer in the realm of fanfiction, thanks to Ubisoft’s collaboration with Krafton, which is bringing Assassin’s Creed heroes to PUBG in August.
From August 17 to September 22, PUBG players will have the opportunity to earn themed cosmetics, including:
- Costumes (x2 sets)
- Bag leather (x2 set)
- Parachute Skin
- Weapon Spell
- Spray item (x2 set)
The actual costumes, sprays, and skins available at the event have not been determined, but a similar crossover is in the works for Krafton’s mobile battle royale game New State Mobile – formerly PUBG: New State – which uses Ezio’s outfit from Assassin’s Creed It will feature Brotherhood and Shay’s outfit from Assassin’s Creed Rogue. So it is quite logical to assume that these skins will also come to PUBG, but Krafton refused to elaborate on the details.
The PUBG Haven course will also be updated for a “limited time” during the crossover event with Assassin’s Creed-themed resources and props, including the complete takeover of one of the map’s main buildings by Abstergo Industries, the multinational corporate conglomerate that serves as the Templar’s modern-day front: The Building an Animus machine will be hidden inside, and “Leap of Faith” ledges will be strategically placed on the roof.
This isn’t the first bizarre, inappropriate crossover PUBG has been involved with with other publishers – in fact, it’s a relatively common occurrence. Past Krafton collaborations have seen cosmetics from Mission Impossible, Resident Evil, Godzilla, Jujutsu Kaisen, League of Legends, Haruhi Suzumiya and Warframe appear in the world of PUBG.
Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like the PUBG gang will be showing up in any Assassin’s Creed games, so while it would be fun to see Ezio pose with some quality cooking utensils from the Pope, we’re not quite there yet for that to happen. Maybe someday.
