Ubisoft and #Square Enix will prove that big games do not have to compete all the time. Starting on August 31, a downloadable content pack will come to "#Final Fantasy XV" — it will also make "Assassin's Creed" fans happy.

Game collaboration is a thing for big game franchises. Square Enix and Ubisoft decided to take their respect for each other's work on a different level. The two teams announced the existence of the collaboration in Gamescom via a piece of artwork that features Bayek from Assassin's Creed and Noctis from Final Fantasy.

There were also hints about the collaboration dropped in the "Assassin's Creed Origins" trailer.

This unusual collaboration was started three years ago when the two teams met informally at the Tokyo Game Show. It was also being hinted as early as last year. Ashraf Ismail, the game director of Ubisoft Montreal, noted in an Ubisoft blog post that the two teams are very thrilled to have this opportunity to pay homage to each other's work.

What's inside the DLC?

On August 30, "Final Fantasy XV" players who successfully obtained the Dream Egg from the previous Moogle Chocobo Carnival will receive a cool Assassin outfit for Noctis. The very next day, the free DLC will be available for download for all the Final Fantasy XV players. The town of Lestallum will be transformed to resemble a more appropriate style for the event with signs and banners that signal that arrival of the festival.

Like the previous Chocobo event, there will also be new activities for players.

If you're both a "Final Fantasy" and "Assassin's Creed" fan, it is a win-win situation for you. The event is called "Assassin's Festival to Lestallum."

There will also be another outfit in addition to that of Noctis' Assassin outfit. Items that are themed for the festival will be available for consumption or remembrance. There will also be new abilities for Noctis that will enable him to explore the map like an Assasin. Assassin's abilities will also be available in the whole festival run.

Though the DLC will be available as early as August 31, the event will be running until January 31 next year. So it is okay if you delay the download a little bit. But the early birds always have the better position.

'Assassin's Creed Origins'

There is no info yet if a "Final Fantasy XV" inspired DLC for the upcoming game "Assassin's Creed Origins" will be available. But news about the game like its stunning graphics and fresh RPG concept is enough to get the hype train running. #Assassin Creed
