Assassin’s Creed Infinity: everything we know about Ubisoft’s next service game

Reported as a rumor before being confirmed in a Ubisoft blog post, Assassin’s Creed Infinity is an upcoming service game of multiple games in one package. That’s a big change for the Assassin’s Creed franchise, which has largely been a series of individual games largely exploring a single location and environment. Below, we round up everything we know about Infinity as we head into Summer Game Fest and all of the Not-E3 summer events.

Given how early development is on Infinity, we don’t know much about the game beyond which studios are behind it and what Ubisoft hopes this game will one day be. But honestly, as long as Ubisoft follows my advice that Assassin’s Creed should be smaller in future builds, I’ll be happy with how it looks.

Jugando ahora: Assassin’s Creed Infinity suena agotador

Fecha de lanzamiento

Todavía no sabemos cuándo saldrá Infinity. El reportero de Bloomberg Jason Schreier dijo que Infinity no se lanzará hasta 2024 en el más temprano. Dado que Ubisoft generalmente revela un nuevo juego de Assassin’s Creed el año anterior o posterior a su lanzamiento, eso significa que es posible que no aprendamos nada nuevo sobre Infinity hasta 2023.

Si escuchamos algo oficial sobre Assassin’s Creed este verano, es mucho más probable que recibamos noticias sobre el juego Assassin’s Creed de menor escala sobre Basim Ibn Ishaq de Valhalla, que, según se informa, llevará la serie a sus raíces más sociales impulsadas por el sigilo. Con informes que apuntan a una fecha de lanzamiento tan pronto como este año, se espera que sea lo primero.

Lo que sabemos

Infinity es el nombre de marcador de posición actual para un próximo juego de Assassin’s Creed que contará con múltiples lugares y períodos históricos y evolucionará con el tiempo. Se están empaquetando varios juegos juntos, con el potencial de que cada uno juegue de manera diferente y utilice su propia mecánica y configuración únicas.

“[Assassin’s Creed Infinity] it will not be a free-to-play [game]said Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot in October 2021. “This game will have a lot of narrative elements. It’s going to be a very innovative game, but it’s going to have what players already have in every other Assassin’s Creed game, all the elements they’ve loved…from the very beginning. So it’s going to be a great game. But with many elements that already exist in the games we published in the past.”

In Assassin’s Creed Unity, we can see that Abstergo has developed its own variation of Assassin’s Creed Infinity which is called Helix.

Infinity is being developed in a new cross-studio structure between Ubisoft Montreal and Ubisoft Quebec. In terms of Assassin’s Creed, Montreal previously worked on the original game, II, Brotherhood, Revelations, III, IV: Black Flag, Unity, Origins, and Valhalla. Quebec, meanwhile, worked on Syndicate and Odyssey.

Also of note, Assassin’s Creed narrative director Darby McDevitt returned to Ubisoft in November 2021. The writer has been instrumental in shaping the lore behind the long-running series, so he would presumably be chosen to work on Infinity. However, neither Ubisoft nor McDevitt have confirmed if that is the case.

platforms

Ubisoft has yet to announce Infinity’s launch platforms. Since it’s reportedly coming in 2024 or later, there’s a good chance it’ll skip Xbox One, PS4, and Switch. We assume that the game will be released for Xbox Series X|S, PS5 and PC.

computer system specifications

We don’t know the PC system specs for Infinity yet.

trailers

Ubisoft hasn’t released any cinematic or gameplay trailers for Infinity, which makes sense given how far the game is supposedly from launch.

multiplayer details

We don’t know yet if Infinity will feature multiplayer modes, but it’s possible given that Assassin’s Creed has dipped into online multiplayer before in two different ways, and both have been excellent.

The first method was introduced in Brotherhood and was repeated in Revelations, III and IV: Black Flag. This was a competitive multiplayer mode that had you completing objectives or assassinating other players, all while doing your best to pretend to be a typical NPC in a crowd and avoid getting eliminated yourself.

With Unity, Assassin’s Creed forayed into cooperative multiplayer. In this mode, you and up to three friends needed to complete tough assassination missions or raids, working together to complete the task as quickly and stealthily as possible; getting it right would unlock new weapons and armor pieces to further specialize your character in both the Single Player Campaign and Multiplayer modes.

Given the popularity of both multiplayer modes, we could see one (or both) return in Infinity. But maybe that’s just wishful thinking on our part.

DLC/microtransaction details

Ubisoft hasn’t announced whether Infinity will include DLC, but as a service game, it’s likely to evolve over time with post-launch expansions of some kind. Microtransactions have also been a big part of Assassin’s Creed since 2017’s Origins, with Ubisoft selling cosmetics and XP boosts in the in-game store in every game since then, so it stands to reason that Infinity will likely have something similar.

Pre-order details

Infinity is not yet available for pre-order.
