Assassin’s Creed fans have a lot to be excited for. Last month, as well as the official announcement of Assassin’s Creed Mirage (featuring Valhalla’s Basim in ninth century Baghdad) an array of upcoming projects were announced. Always wanted an Assassin’s Creed in Japan? You’re getting it. How about one centred around the witch trials? Okay, we don’t know that for sure yet, but that’s what a lot of people are speculating that Assassin’s Creed Codename Hexe will be about.
Now, as GamesRadar+ reports, Ubisoft has now revealed a few more details about Codename Invictus. In case you’ve lost track of the various codenames (I can’t blame you if so), this is an upcoming multiplayer title.
Check out the trailer for Assassin’s Creed Mirage right here.
In the company’s most recent earnings report, we were given clear confirmation that this project is now in full swing, and has a bunch of For Honor devs right behind it, which is an exciting prospect. “Additionally, a team, including For Honor veterans, is currently working on bringing back multiplayer to Assassin’s Creed with a standalone experience through Infinity under the project codename Invictus,” the report reads.
Assassin’s Creed Infinity is said to be a “gateway” for different Assassin’s Creed experiences (including premium and free titles), so basically, Invictus will be its own game, accessed through Infinity. I say "basically", but it’s admittedly slightly confusing. Regardless, it’ll be really exciting to see what they come up with.
Following the announcement of Codename Hexe, a number of fans took to Reddit to share how much they’d love to see a female protagonist. Especially given the speculated setting of the game, it would make a lot of sense - some suggested that the game could follow the protagonist herself avoiding being tried for witchcraft, fighting against those attempting to capture her. At the moment though, this hasn’t been officially confirmed, so we’ll have to wait and see what actually comes of the title.
