For fans excited to jump into ancient China as part of Assassin’s Creed: Codename Jade, an early chance to experience the free-to-play mobile title is coming soon. The first Closed Beta of Assassin’s Creed: Codename Jade will kick off on August 3, opening the gates for players who have pre-registered earlier in the year to try out the game ahead of launch on both iOS and Android platforms.
Those interested can still register for future tests, but this initial Closed Beta will only be available to a selected number of random players. Questionnaires will be sent out between July 17 to 27, with successful applicants receiving their invites from July 27 to 31. Pre-download of the Assassin’s Creed: Codename Jade Closed Beta will then begin on August 1, with the actual beta running from August 3 to 11.
Servers will be located in North America and Western Europe, and eligible players can select the server that best suits their network connection. The Closed Beta will feature English text and voiceover as part of the experience.
As for requirements to join in the Closed Beta of Assassin’s Creed: Codename Jade, they are:
- Android: Snapdragon 865 or above, running Android 10 or above
- iOS: iPhone 11 or above
Assassin’s Creed Codename Jade takes place in 215 B.C., between the events of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey and Assassin’s Creed Origins. Set during the time of the first unified empire of the Qin dynasty in China, it was an unprecedented era of trade and cultural exchange between East and West.
Against this intriguing backdrop, players will embark on the path of “Xia” as the adopted child of the master, Wei Yu. While duty calls, hidden threats loom large. From the Great Wall beyond the borders to the imperial capital of Xianyang, players will begin a journey through ancient history to unravel dangerous conspiracies, parkour and explore the beautiful open world, refine the skill of assassination, and uncover the truth of the player’s identity.
