    Assassin’s Creed Origins, Final Fantasy XV Developers Announce Collaboration at Gamescom 2017 

    Highlights Collaboration to see both the two franchises paying homage to each other Assassin’s Festival DLC will be released free for Final Fantasy XV DLC will include Assassin outfits and abilities for Noctis

    The developers behind last year’s Final Fantasy XV and the upcoming Assassin’s Creed Origins are collaborating to bring a bunch of Easter eggs for fans of both the franchises. The collaboration will see both the two franchises paying homage to each other’s gaming universes, Ubisoft reveals.

    The announcement was made during the ongoing Gamescom with a piece of artwork that features Bayek from Assassin’s Creed Origins and Noctis from Final Fantasy XV. Unofficially though, the collaboration has been ongoing for some time now as fans have spotted Easter eggs and references in Final Fantasy XV’s trailer form last year, Assassin’s Creed Origins announcement trailer, and recently in the Assassin’s Creed Origins Gamescom trailer.

    “This collaboration is the result of being huge fans,” says Ismail, game director at Ubisoft Montreal. “There’s a lot of respect between the two teams and we couldn’t be more thrilled with the opportunity to pay homage to each other’s work.”

    Ubisoft says that the collaboration will officially kick off from August 30 as Final Fantasy XV players in possession of the Dream Egg from the Moogle Chocobo Carnival event will get a be gifted an Assassin outfit for Noctis. On August 31, the Assassin’s Festival DLC will be released free for Final Fantasy XV. The Assassin Festival will see the town of Lestallum transform with signs and banners and will bring additional themed items and features, and another Assassin outfit into Final Fantasy XV’s world. Noctis will also get some pretty neat Assassin abilities.

    Assassin’s Creed Origins is set to release on October 27 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. It was also announced at the ongoing Gamescom that Final Fantasy XV will be coming to Windows PCs as Final Fantasy XV Windows Edition in early 2018. Developer Square Enix also revealed Final Fantasy XV: Pocket Edition or Android, iOS, and Windows, which will be made available in Fall later this year.

    Community Collaboration Enhances Flash 

    With the December release of Flash Player, we introduced several new security enhancements. Just like the Flash Player mitigations we shipped earlier this year, many of these projects were the result of collaboration with the security community and our partners.

    Adobe has spent the year working with Google and Microsoft on proactive mitigations. Some of the mitigations were minor tweaks to the environment: such as Google’s Project Zero helping us to add more heap randomization on Windows 7 or working with the Chrome team to tweak our use of the Pepper API for better sandboxing. There have also been a few larger scale collaborations.

    For larger scale mitigations we tend to take a phased, iterative release approach. One of the advantages of this approach is that we can collect feedback to improve the design throughout implementation. Another advantage is that moving targets can increase the complexity of exploit development for attackers who depend on static environments for exploit reliability.

    One example of a larger scale collaboration is our heap isolation work. This project initially started with a Project Zero code contribution to help isolate vectors. Based on the results of that release and discussions with the Microsoft research team, Adobe then expanded that code to cover ByteArrays. In last week’s release, Adobe deployed a rewrite of our memory manager to create the foundation for widespread heap isolation which we will build on, going forward. This change will limit the ability for attackers to effectively leverage use-after-free vulnerabilities for exploitation.

    Another example of a larger scale mitigation this year was – with the assistance of Microsoft – our early adoption of Microsoft’s new Control Flow Guard (CFG) protection. Our first roll out of this mitigation was in late 2014 to help protect static code within Flash Player. In the first half of this year, we expanded our CFG usage to protect dynamic code generated by our Just-In-Time (JIT) compiler. In addition, Microsoft also worked with us to ensure that we could take advantage of the latest security controls for their new Edge browser.

    Throughout 2015, vulnerability disclosure programs and the security community have been immensely helpful in identifying CVE’s. Approximately one-third of our reports this year were via Project Zero alone. Many of these were non-trivial as many of the reported bugs required significant manual research into the platform. With the help of the security community and partners like Microsoft and Google, Adobe has been able to introduce important new exploit mitigations into Flash Player and we are excited about what we are queuing up for next year’s improvements. Thank you to everyone who has contributed along the way.
