Ubisoft — the powerhouse publisher behind hit game franchises Just Dance and Far Cry — is making considerable moves in the Web3 world. This time, joining hands with Reality Labs to mint limited-edition NFT ‘Assassin’s Creed Smart Collectibles’ on the Polygon network, with the public sale starting on May 16.
Ubisoft and Reality Labs recently joined forces to create customizable, 3D-printed collectibles based on game franchises, including Assassin’s Creed, For Honor and Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six. However, stepping into a new territory, there’s a digital tie-in.
Linking physical keepsakes drawn from the widely popular action-adventure game Assassin’s Creed, the distinctive features of ‘Digital Soul’ NFTs offers buyers the chance to customize and claim a 3D-printed memento showcasing a hero from the game series shielded in a clear cube.
Owners can cherry-pick a selection of weapons, outfits and stances before a physical keepsake of the character is printed and shipped. What’s more, the NFTs are obtainable in several rarity levels, with higher-tier NFTs offering a broader range of customization options for these tangible collectibles.

Assassin’s Creed NFTs Tap into Progressive Technology
One of the most exciting pointers of the Digital Soul NFTs includes incorporating a near-field communication (NFC) chip. As such, when tapping the chip with a smartphone, owners can access a digital version of their character via a companion app and view additional features and utilities related to Assassin’s Creed.
On top of Digital Soul NFTs, Reality Labs is preparing to roll out 1,500 ‘Piece of Eden’ passes, which open a gateway to extra perks, including access to more limited-edition drops and priority access to 3D printing.
Famous for implementing in-game assets into significant video games, Ubisoft already models a crown for pioneering NFTs in gaming. Now, leveraging cutting-edge technology like NFC chips and bridging the gap between digital and physical realms, Assassin’s Creed smart collectibles are set to bring the game developer to greater heights.
