Feel the Need for Creed
During its Ubisoft Forward event this weekend, the publisher revealed the future of the series — and it’s a lot of assassinating.
The recently leaked/announced Assassin’s Creed Mirage looks to go back to the roots of the series, with more of a focus on action/adventure and parkour over the RPG elements of the modern entries. It stars Basim Ibn Is’haq, one of the characters that appeared in 2020’s Valhalla, as he works to discover his own mysterious life. Set in 9th Century Baghdad, the game will have Basim work alongside the Hidden Ones as he explores a giant, open city.
Assassin’s Creed Mirage arrives 2023 for Xbox, PlayStation, and PC.
Further into the future, the company will release Assassin’s Creed “Codenamed JADE,” a new mobile-only game that will take players to ancient China. It’ll utilize the modern RPG-lite gameplay of the more recent trio of Assassin’s Creed games.
Assassin’s Creed “Codename RED” will be a console entry that takes players into feudal Japan, complete with a “full Shinobi fantasy” action RPG.
The game will be the next big flagship title, developed by Ubisoft Quebec, and will serve as the first main entry in the Assassin’s Creed Infinity hub that ties future games together. The hub will serve as a sort of jumping in point, utilizing a live service backbone to keep players jumping into and around each of the games within it.
The next mainline entry in the series will be the intriguing Assassin’s Creed “Codename HEXE.” The game will take place during the european witch hunts and trials, which is SUPER FREAKING INTRIGUING OF A PREMISE TO ME. It’s being developed by Ubisoft Montreal.
Assassin’s Creed “Invictus” is another new entry, being teased as a multiplayer game similar to that of Brotherhood/Revelations. It will also likely bring in assassins from several games in the series, so that you can always assassinate all assassins as an assassin.
The company then revealed that it’s working with Netflix to bring a new mobile-only game to the platform, alongside the previously-revealed live action series.
Finally, after all of those new games, Eivor’s story in Valhalla will be given a final bit of DLC to close out the game, with The Last Chapter dropping as a free update this year.
WHEW! Lots of assassinatinizing!
