Assassin’s Creed Infinity Reveals Japan and Witches Campaigns

Assassin’s Creed Infinity revealed two new campaigns based on samurai in Japan and witches in the 16th century. Assassin’s Creed Infinity is an all-new Assassin’s Creed game that will essentially be the ultimate entry in the franchise. It is a live service game that will collect multiple stories from different eras and allow it to be in one big hub. It’s a rather unique idea, but given that the series has used technology like the Animus to allow characters to jump from one era to another, it makes sense to create a game that turns this concept into a kind of reality. For a while it was extremely unclear what it would look like or how it would work, but today Ubisoft gave us a sneak peek.

During the Ubisoft Forward event, the game’s publisher revealed what the future of Assassin’s Creed looks like. It includes a smaller scale game, more back to basics, released in 2023, a remake of the original game and two new campaigns for Assassin’s Creed Infinity which revolve around witches in the 16th century witch hunt (entitled Hex code name) and samurai in Japan (entitled Codename Red). Assassin’s Creed Infinity will allow players to bounce between these games, but it’s unclear when they’ll be released. Both of these campaigns leaked earlier this week, but this is the first time we’ve gotten any meaningful details. It has also been confirmed that Ubisoft is studying a multiplayer component for Assassin’s Creed Infinitybut we don’t know how it will work.

Of course, if you’ve been around long enough, you know that a game set in Japan has been high on Assassin’s Creed fans’ wish list for some time. The fact that this is actually happening now is incredibly exciting, but it also comes on the heels of Ghost of Tsushimahe therefore has a high bar to achieve. Hex code name also provides an interesting angle by focusing on witches, possibly opening up the world to a darker story.
