First on August 30, Final Fantasy 15 players who own the Dream Egg from the Moogle Chocobo Carnival will see an Assassin-themed outfit for Noctis. This festival will give players the ability explore the game in the style of Ubisoft's franchise while also using some of the Assassin's Abilities.

The official post from Ubisoft's blog states that this idea began nearly three years ago at an informal meeting during the Tokyo Game Show.

"This collaboration is the result of being huge fans", says Ismail, game director at Ubisoft Montreal. The two development teams will be "paying homage to each other's gaming universes" as part of this new collaboration. Noctis, suddenly proficient in the art of Assassination, helps out Cindy but with a host of new Assassin's Creed inspired powers including stealth kills, Eagle Dives, and some good old fashioned parkour.

As of now, how Final Fantasy XV might be incorporated into the upcoming release of Assassin's Creed Origins is uncertain.
