Assassin's Creed 'Smart Collectibles' Pair NFTs With 3D-Printed Physical Items

Ubisoft has been the most active major game publisher to date in the Web3 world, and now the company behind game franchises like Far Cry and Just Dance is making another NFT play—this time based around its massively popular open-world action series, Assassin’s Creed.

Integral Reality Labs and Ubisoft have partnered to create Assassin’s Creed Smart Collectibles, which are NFT access passes minted on Ethereum scaling network Polygon that are paired with physical collectibles inspired by the popular historical action franchise.

Each minted “Digital Soul” NFT can be used to customize and redeem a physical collectible—a 3D-printed keepsake that depicts one of the heroes from the game series suspended within a transparent cube.

The official mint starts on May 16.
