Ubisoft introduces exclusive Assassin’s Creed Origins headphones from Focal.
Today, a long-term partnership was announced between Ubisoft and Focal, a world leader in high fidelity products. Focal’s Listen Wireless headphones are designed specifically for Assassin’s Creed Origins and are available exclusively through the Ubisoft Store. In addition, the renowned French jeweler Tournaire® has designed a limited number of Utopia headphones from Focal with 18 carat gold design elements.
The Assassin’s Creed Origins Listen Wireless headphones have been specially developed for the Ubisoft Store in a limited number of 2,222 copies. The Listen Wireless headphones use Bluetooth® wireless technology and offer Assassin’s Creed fans an exceptional product, made with an advanced design of French craftsmanship. The quality of Focal headphones ensures that fans can enjoy the world of Assassin’s Creed Origins with high quality audio for up to 20 hours. In addition, the headphones contain a dual microphone system for better call quality. The design stays true to the art style of the upcoming Assassin’s Creed game.
Together with the French jeweler Tournaire, a synonym for excellent quality in the world of jewelry, Focal takes the collaboration around Assassin’s Creed to an even higher level. Tournaire has created ten numbered copies of a handmade pair of headphones: Assassin’s Creed Origins Utopia. A 3D artist, an art caster and a goldsmith worked with the jeweler for months to create this piece of art. With golden design elements, it’s the perfect way to celebrate the Ancient Egypt where Assassin’s Creed Origins is set. This wondrous work of art contains elements of 18 carat gold and is displayed on a bronze head of Assassin’s Creed Origins main character, Bayek, of which only ten numbered pieces exist.
Assassin’s Creed Origins Utopia by Tournaire and Bayek’s head is on display at Tournaire’s boutique in Paris (7 place Vendôme – Cour Vendôme, 75001 Paris).
“Focal and Ubisoft share the same commitment to excellence and creating emotional bonds. The limited edition Assassin’s Creed Origins headphones represent the first step of a long-running collaboration,” said François Tallec, Director of Licensing out and Publishing at Ubisoft EMEA.
“Sound is key in gaming for a truly immersive experience. Focal, a forerunner in hi-fi audio, is proud to announce its partnership with Ubisoft for the release of Assassin’s Creed Origins. This is the first step for a French collaboration that focuses on excellence in two related worlds,” said Sébastien Dumas, Focal Brand and Communication Director.
“Creating unique creations and masterpieces is part of Tournaire’s philosophy. This collaboration reflects the exceptional French expertise. It is always a pleasure to work with innovative brands and push boundaries to create exceptional items,” said Mathieu Tournaire, Managing Director and Creative Director of Tournaire.
Since the very first Assassin’s Creed game ten years ago, the Assassin’s Creed franchise has always been about epic storytelling, history, mystery and beauty. Assassin’s Creed Origins focuses on the beginning of it all. Set in Ancient Egypt, the action invites players to explore the most mysterious region of our history. This happens during an important period that will change the world forever and lead to the beginning of the Assassin’s Brotherhood. In this living, systemic, and majestic open world, players will discover colorful ecosystems made up of diverse and exotic landscapes. These provide players with plenty of opportunities to explore areas, experience adventures and complete challenges.
The Assassin’s Creed Origins Listen Wireless Headphones from Focal are available exclusively through the Ubisoft Store for €249.
Assassin’s Creed Origins Utopia from Tournaire can be purchased for €50,000. Bayek’s bronze head costs €12,000.
