The Assassin Order usually strikes from the shadows, but when the whole war takes place on the length of a tabletop, they have to be a bit more overt. Ubisoft has revealed that Ezio Auditore da Firenze will lead one of the eight armies of Toy Soldiers: War Chest, bringing their hidden blades and renaissance-era arsenal to bear against opponents like GI Joe and He-Man's Masters of the Universe.
Toy Soldiers: War Chest pits plastic armies against each other in grandly miniscule tower defense battles, letting players take control of weapon emplacements, vehicles, and elite units like Ezio to rout their rivals. Speaking of rivals, Ubisoft confirmed that Cobra (GI Joe's perpetual nemesis) will also be a playable faction, led by the shiny-helmeted Cobra Commander himself.
You can act out your own miniature skirmishes when Toy Soldiers War Chest releases as a downloadable title for PC, PS4, and Xbox One later this summer.
