News | Assassin's Creed Infinity Brings Players to Japan

During the Ubisoft Forward presentation, Ubisoft revealed the first two games that Assassin's Creed Infinity will launch, namely Codename Red and Codename Hexe.

Assassin’s Creed Infinity should become a hub of sorts for new, future Assassin’s Creed adventures. The game has already been officially announced, but has not yet been shown to the outside world. During the Ubisoft Forward presentation, the developer revealed more information about Infinity, including the first two games or stories.

Assassin’s Creed: Codename Red is currently the name of one of those two games and is set in Feudal Japan, a popular setting that fans have been asking about for years. In the short images we see a Shinobi landing on a roof. According to Ubisoft, Red will be a full-fledged open-world RPG and not the linear direction that Mirage is going.

Assassin’s Creed: Codename Hexe is a bit different than we’re used to. In the short footage, we see a dark forest with a bunch of branches in the shape of the Assassin’s Creed log hanging by a thread. The atmosphere and setting are very reminiscent of some kind of witch theme, similar to what we saw in the Wrath of the Druids expansion of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla.

A release date for Assassin’s Creed Infinity was not given.

News | First footage of Assassin's Creed Mirage shown

Ubisoft officially revealed Assassin's Creed Mirage during the Ubisoft Forward presentation

Information about Mirage has been leaked in recent weeks and last Tuesday Ubisoft confirmed the existence of Assassin’s Creed Mirage. During the Forward presentation it was finally time to show more of the game.

Set in Baghdad, the game begins during the city’s golden age in the year 861. Players take on the role of Basim Ibn Ishaq, who we know from Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, set twenty years after Mirage. In Valhalla we see Basim as a master assassin, but before that he was just a street thief. In Baghdad he meets Roshan – voiced by actress Shoreh Aghdashloo and leader of the Hidden Ones. Roshan becomes Basim’s mentor and trains him to become a full-fledged assassin.

Developer Ubisoft Bordeaux says it takes a lot of inspiration from the first Assassin’s Creed. The story is much more linear and the gameplay focuses on stealth. Basim has several tools at his disposal such as mines and poison darts. Although the RPG elements from previous games are no longer present, players can still upgrade their tools.

Parkour has also been overhauled. For example, Basim can use different poles to turn the corner or to cover great distances by launching itself. The gameplay of Mirage should be faster and more agile, not only in parkour, but also in combat.

Assassin’s Creed Mirage will be released in 2023 for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X and S, and PC. An exact release date was not given, but previous rumors point to a release in the spring.
