Ubisoft has unveiled Assassin’s Creed Codename Jade, a AAA mobile game set in ancient China. In it, players create their own character and use touch controls for gameplay that the developers say includes parkour and “intense combat.”

Assassin’s Creed Codename Jade is a free-to-play title and is also separate from the mobile game developed exclusively for Netflix alongside the Netflix series adaptation. You can watch the full Assassin’s Creed showcase below:

Assassin’s Creed Codename Jade joins other mobile games Ubisoft is currently working on, as the publisher looks to expand its portfolio beyond console and PC to deliver some of the best games on Android and iOS.

Apart from these mobile projects, Ubisoft has also shared the main entries being developed for the franchise. Assassin’s Creed Mirage is a smaller game slated for launch in 2023. Further afield are Assassin’s Creed Codename Red and Assassin’s Creed Codename Hexe, set in Japan and (apparently) the Holy Roman Empire respectively during the Witch Trials .

Both Codename Red and Codename Hexe are part of Assassin’s Creed Infinity, which is kind of a building block for the future of the series.
