"#final fantasy" game developer #Square Enix and "#Assassins Creed" video game publisher Ubisoft announced a one of a kind collaboration to bring fans an epic, exclusive event. The result of this collaboration is an in-game event in "Final Fantasy XV" called the Assasins Festival, a limited affair for fans of both games that will run from the 31st of August to the 31st of January. This free DLC is an entire festival dedicated to the culture of assassination. The town of Lestallum transforms itself complete with signs and banners for the festivity that is the Assasins Festival.

The master assassin's robe

Fans are treated to a special free DLC later this month which lets Noctis' boy band cosplay as "Assassins Creed" characters, this event not only lets players see the whole town transform but also rewards players with in game items and exclusive activities.

Noctis himself will get the iconic Assassin's garb by obtaining the Dream Egg in the Moogle Chocobo Carnival event.

The master assassin's robe was worn by Altaïr Ibn-La'Ahad, a plain white garment that featured a hood that was shaped like an eagle's beak in the center. It had a layered lowered portion with the back of the robes extending down lower than the front. It had a red sash at the waist and had pouches containing supplies, and a sheath for a sword connected to a belt. This symbolic garb has appeared in every game in the franchise except 'Assassin's Creed: Syndicate.'

Borrowed mechanics

Apart from having to cosplay as assassins, players will get to experience game mechanics from "Assassins Creed." Players can enjoy moves that are native to assassins such as running, climbing the sides of buildings, or jumping between rooftops.

Stealth kills are also available as Noctis can be seen using the hidden blade in the video below.

In the video, Noctis is also seen atop a structure which provides him with excellent vantage point similar to what characters in the AC franchise would do to synchronize map locations. Promotional art for the collaboration features Noctis with an "Assassins Creed" original aerial assassination move. Square Enix also announced that players who will partake in this event will receive more rewards.

The people behind "Final Fantasy" are working hard to increase the game's already massive fan base. With an upcoming mobile version of FFXV, they look to expand even more by covering the vast mobile phone gaming [VIDEO] market.
