"Assassin's Creed: Identity" is the first Assassin's Creed action RPG game for iPad and iPhone that lets you create, develop and customize your own Assassins and play as them in one of the greatest classic Assassin's Creed eras: the Italian Renaissance."
Assassin's Creed: Identity primarily takes place in Florence and Rome during the Renaissance. New locations, and items, can be unlocked by playing through the game. The database returns, offering entries on historic monuments, characters and events.
The missions in Identity center around the Crows gang and the First Civilization. Missions are short and varied, generated from sixteen different mission types. Players can choose to hire friends and other players to help complete objectives.
Identity allows players to train, develop and equip two different Assassins. Players can choose from four classes: Berserker, Shadow Blade, Trickster and Thief. Each class has its own strengths and weaknesses. Assassins can be customized with unique outfits and color variations. Using the forging system, players can create new items and use it to customize their Assassin.
Controls and graphics
Identity supports tap-to-move, dual virtual stick controls and gamepads. Running on the Unity engine, the game features custom-made HD textures, shaders and models, as based on the Assassin's Creed console games. It also includes a dynamic crowd system and lighting, as well as night, day and weather presets.
In order to effectively solve most enemies, the Kill Token can be gained by killing guards, which increases the meter by one bar; conversely, every injury in combat decreases the meter by one bar.
