Assassin’s Creed Codename JADE closed beta begins in August

Last month at Ubisoft Forward we learned that Assassin’s Creed Codename JADE — a mobile spin-off of the long-running franchise — would be having a closed beta sometime this summer. Today we learned exactly when the beta opens: August 3rd.

While there have been other mobile Assassin’s Creed games over the past decade or so, Codename JADE is promising to deliver what no others have done so far: a proper open-world Assassin’s Creed experience. Whether it can deliver that remains to be seen — though the trailer below certainly looks promising — but if you want to find out for yourself, you can head over to and register for the closed beta now.
