Assassin's Creed: Identity primarily took place in Florence and Rome during the Renaissance. New locations, and items, were be unlocked by playing through the game. The database returned, offering entries on historic monuments, characters and events.

The missions in Identity centered around the Crows gang and the First Civilization. Missions were short and varied, generated from sixteen different mission types. Players could choose to hire friends and other players to help complete objectives.

Identity allowed players to train, develop, and equip two different Assassins. Players could choose from four classes: Berserker, Shadow Blade, Trickster and Thief. Each class had its own strengths and weaknesses. Assassins could be customized with unique outfits and color variations. Using the forging system, players could create new items and use it to customize their Assassin.

Identity supported tap-to-move, dual virtual stick controls and gamepads. Running on the Unity engine, the game featured custom-made HD textures, shaders and models, as based on the Assassin's Creed console games. It also included a dynamic crowd system and lighting, as well as night, day and weather presets.

In order to effectively solve most enemies, the Kill Token could be gained by killing guards, which increased the meter by one bar, with a total of three bars. When the meter was completely filled, it granted Lo Sparviero the ability to execute the target. Conversely, every injury in combat decreased the meter by one bar.
