It looks like Star Wars Trials on Tatooine is not the only “experiment” that is being held in connection with games, Ubisoft is also working on an Assassin’s Creed VR “experience.”
During the GDC 2016 conference of AMD, they were accompanied by Ubisoft as well and together the two companies have announced what they are calling an “experience” and not a VR game based on the series.
The president of Practical Magic VR and director of VR experiences at Ubisoft, Matthew Lewis, has insisted on that last part.
Any how, the Assassin’s Creed VR experience is going to be based on the Michael Fassbender starrer Assassin’s Creed Movie but that is all we have been told specifically about the content.
On the development side, it has been announced that the virtual reality project has been developed in collaboration with FOX and Practical Magic. The latter is a lesser known company that appears to be owned by Ubisoft itself. It looks like they have their own version on LucasFilm’s ILMxLAB.
Ubisoft’s official Twitter profile also announced the news a couple of hours ago.

We are still trying to find out what content will this bring us, but since it is tied in with the movie, we can assume it will be about 15th century assassins from Spain fighting the Templars.
