The popular haptic system will be compatible with some of their top games, starting with the latest installment of the popular video game saga, Assassin’s Creed.
OWO and Ubisoft are collaborating to bring real physical sensations to the publisher’s game portfolio. Starting off will be the new entry in the critically acclaimed franchise Assassin’s Creed Mirage®, which will add sensations to the new adventures of Basim, a cunning street thief who suffers terrible visions from which he seeks answers and justice.
Players will join an old organization and adopt a new creed, one that will change Basim’s destiny in a way he could never have imagined. Meanwhile, they will be able to feel all the impacts the avatar experiences.
Assassin’s Creed Mirage will include multiple different sensations such as impacts and parkour. It will also incorporate some exclusive sensations never felt before. You will be able to play and feel all of it on PC and consoles (PlayStation®5, PlayStation®4, Xbox Series X & Xbox Series S).
This collaboration will be comprised of the outstanding OWO Haptic Gaming System and an exclusive OWO Assassin's Creed Mirage Edition skin which has an entirely new design, mimicking the main character’s outfit. The edition will be available initially for purchase on OWO’s official website and will be sold as a bundle with the Assassin’s Creed Mirage game available through different retailers later on. Both Ubisoft Bordeaux and OWO teams are working intensely to add sensations to the game
and offer the most interactive experience possible.
“By leveraging OWO’s groundbreaking technologies and expertise, we are able to immerse players in the world, sounds and sensations of Assassin’s Creed Mirage in an innovative and enhanced way. We can’t wait for our players to discover and enjoy the coming-of-age story of Basim with the power of OWO”, Fabian Salomon, Lead Producer at Ubisoft Bordeaux.
“We are excited to unveil our strategic partnership between Ubisoft and OWO. This dynamic alliance merges the immersive gameplay of Ubisoft’s world-class video games with the cutting-edge technological prowess of OWO. It is an incredible opportunity for OWO to collaborate with a publisher such as Ubisoft. We are proud to have Assassin’s Creed Mirage in our game portfolio and we can’t wait for players to start feeling the game. Together, we are on a mission to reshape the gaming landscape and push the boundaries of interactive entertainment.” affirmed Jose Fuertes, Founder and CEO at OWO.
