Immortals Fenyx Rising and Splinter Cell in one epic crossover

For seven action-packed days, players can experience seven Ubisoft franchises in the sandbox title beginning January 24th. Celebrate UbiWeek madness by equipping Immortals Fenyx Rising's iconic Wings of Daidalos, which renders gorgeous Feathered Wings on your avatar along with a trail of sparkles as you move.

Meanwhile, Splinter Cell fans can enjoy transforming into Sam Fisher who joins the game with his trademark Stealth Suit and Night Vision Goggles.

To lend a suitably covert feel to his insertion into the Growtopia universe, the iconic operative will have unique animations for walking, jumping, falling, and punching, and keen eared Splinter Cell fans will also be able to hear the iconic sound of the Sam Fisher’s Night Vision Goggles turning on playing in the background.

Assassin’s Creed, Rabbids, and Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon

On top of those two universes, the Ezio - Chest Item from Assassin's Creed lets players enjoy the game as Ezio with similar skills and traits as Splinter Cell's Sam Fisher. The Rabbids - Riding Rabbid, on the other hand, generates a rabbid with a plunger on the player's back when equipped. This lets players unleash a unique kind of attack when punching, as the Rabbid fires plungers at their target.

Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon fans can enjoy a Pet Blood Dragon that follows the player around. Punching activates the pet's own attack that shoots lasers out of its eyes. Similar to the original game, the dragon's bio-luminescent colors also shift depending on its state, along with its animation. In particular, it shines Teal Green while idle, Yellow while moving and Red while punching.

Prince of Persia meets Brawlhalla

To cap off the seven IPs for UbiWeek, the Prince of Persia Weather Machine renders the background to mimic the environment of Sands of Time. There are also plenty of Block Items that add to the look and feel of this unique aesthetic, which includes Cave Columns, Granite Columns, Death Spikes, Cave Torches, Pyramid Spikes, Palace Platforms, Diamond Castle Turrets, and more.

Finally, for Brawhalla, players can transform into Bödvar along with specific animations on equipping, moving, and punching which, in keeping with Brawlhalla’s fighting style, can be utilised when falling or jumping. The same is true for transforming into Val, with two silver and dark blue gauntlets generated upon equipping.

The possibilities are truly endless with Growtopia - now more than ever during UbiWeek. If you're keen on joining all the fun, you can download Growtopia on the iOS App Store or on the Google Play Store for Android devices. It's a free-to-play game with in-app purchases.
