An update for Final Fantasy XV goes live next week and will include an event that will see the Assassin's Creed universe bleed into Eos (no pun intended). 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.

As reported today on Ubiblog: "The Assassin's Festival will have some additional themed items and features, including another outfit from Assassin's Creed, along with abilities that enable Noctis to explore more like an Assassin and even use some of the Assassins" more well-known abilities'.

As detailed by the Ubi Blog, the collaboration came about after an informal meeting almost three years ago between the Assassin's Creed and Final Fantasy development teams. 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. We're not sure yet if this means special Final Fantasy 15 content for Assassin's Creed Origins when that game eventually releases, but hopefully this collaboration turns out to be a two-way street. It will also be available at the launch of Xbox One X on November the 7th.

The chief justice of the Ohio Supreme Court is calling the shooting attack on a judge going to work a cowardly ambush. The other man who was seen on video in the Richmond's vehicle is not being treated as a suspect at this time.

Also, Noctis and his crew will be able to don robes worn by Assassin members and perform signature AC abilities like the Leap of Faith and sneak attacks with the hidden blade.

The only thing is, I haven't got a chance to play Final Fantasy XV yet, and moreover I'm tempted to wait for the PC version now. According to the publisher, players will have the chance to participate in a limited time event, which will feature featuring gameplay elements similar to one of Ubisoft's most profitable intellectual properties.

A collaboration between the "Assassin's Creed" and "Final Fantasy XV" teams was announced at the Gamescom 2017 this Thursday.
