Ubisoft has confirmed the development of Assassin’s Creed Infinity, but has not yet been willing to provide specific news about the new item. Unexpectedly, information has appeared on the web that may intrigue many fans of the series.
The first details about Assassin’s Creed Infinity were shared by Jason Schreier a few months ago . It wasn’t long before the French team confirmed that they were working on a very ambitious project . We have to wait for the official details, but some of them have been made available on Reddit – one of the alleged studio employees decided to make a “holiday gift” to the community and revealed the details. We cannot be sure that the information will turn out to be true, but it is consistent with previously disclosed reports.
Assassin’s Creed Infinity will likely be available at full price ($ 59.99, the old “standard”), but it’s worth adding that the developers are still considering developing a free-2-play game. The production would be released only on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X | S, PC (Ubisoft Connect), Stadia and Amazon Luna. The author of the information does not know anything about the previous generation edition.
Assassin’s Creed Infinity will in many ways resemble Destiny 2 – the positions are based on solo or permanent cooperation, and players from the HUB will go on new missions:
The game’s structure is highly based around both solo and cooperative play with a high level of player customization, moving towards a Destiny 2-like experience.
For example, there is a shared hub world, much like the Tower in Destiny 2. This is set in the modern day, where your created protagonist will be able to move about, talking to NPCs, getting different quests and progressing further through the main story. Other players are visible in this area.
The studio will not focus on one era, but intends to offer time travel – the community will go to different historical periods, known as the “Era”:
Adversely, there are multiple different time periods to travel to, called “Eras”, much like how planets in Destiny 2 function. Here, you will play as your Animus Avatar, who you will also create during the tutorial section of the game. This character carries across all time periods in both appearance and stats/gear.
However, the plot does not seem too complicated – the player has to travel through time with other Assassins to discover all the pieces of Eden together, before the Templars do.
– The different Eras are aiming to please as much of the market as possible, so there are both familiar locations from the older games in the series, as well as new ones unique to this game. That being said, many new gameplay mechanics are being incorporated as well. I’ll detail some of them below.
From the premiere, we will have access to many eras, and each will offer a different story – after the debut, more missions will be added, and Assassin’s Creed Infinity will be developed in the form of seasons . Everyone will offer a new era and questline.
The current Eras that I’m aware of are the following:
Rome, 1502 – This is the first Era available to the player, and you play as one of the many Assassins recruited by Ezio during the events of AC: Brotherhood. This is where the tutorial takes place, as well as the first main questline.
Occupied France, 1943 – This Era introduces a new mechanic and a first for the series, that being fully-fledged firearms. The gunplay mechanics are largely being pulled from Watchdogs: Legion and tweaked to fit the rest of the game, though melee combat is still very much viable. The story of this section is centered around a group of Assassins working with the 2nd Armored Division to help liberate Paris and hunting down Axis officers and leaders with connections to the Templars.
China, 1634 – You and other assassins assist a local peasant rebellion during the Ming Dynasty. Not sure of the rest of the story here, as things are still pretty early in development. From what I understand, there are 2 more Eras to be available at launch, but they are yet to be determined.
