Assassin's Creed Red Unreal Engine 5 fan trailer shows off stunning open-world Japan

With Assassin’s Creed Codename Red currently in development, one Youtuber and video creator has produced a trailer that could give the official one a run for its money.

Ubisoft is currently hard at work with the next few instalments in the Assassin’s Creed series. With Assassin’s Creed: Mirage arriving on 5 October, the studio is also reportedly working on Assassin’s Creed Nexus VR, Infinity, Codename Hexe, Codename Jade and Invictus. As you can see, it is currently up to their eyeballs in projects but one more has been added to the mix – Codename Red.

Check out a peek of Assassin's Creed Codename Red below!

Assassin’s Creed Codename Red will be set in feudal Japan and will allow players to live out their "very powerful shinobi fantasy". With a release date to be confirmed, one fan, TeaserPlay has imagined what the Red trailer could look like. Using the power of Unreal Engine 5, their aim was to imagine what the game could look like with next-gen graphics. Safe to say, it looks stunning.

The trailer starts with a rendition of Ezio’s Family which was the main soundtrack of Assassin’s Creed 2 but this time it has an authentic Japanese take to it. What follows is a series of panning images showing the scenery of an imagined feudal Japan. We see temples framed with sakura trees, torii gates framing ancient buildings and finally, our assassin walking through built-up streets and standing on mountainsides overlooking the valleys below.

However, with Mirage first up, it may be a while before we see the official Codename Red trailer but if it’s anything like this fan-made one, we are in for a treat. Described as "the future of our open-world RPG games on Assassin's Creed” by developer Marc-Alexis Cote, it’s no surprise that fans are desperate for this title to get a release date. Until then, fan-made videos will have to do.
