What is Assassin’s Creed Infinity? Ubisoft finally reveals more about the platform



Translated, Assassin’s Creed Infinity means “Assassin’s Creed Infinity”. And Ubisoft seems to want to take that literally. Because in an interview, Marc-Alexis Côté from Ubisoft finally revealed more about the platform that is supposed to take the future of the franchise to new dimensions. (via Eurogamer)

AC Infinity becomes THE point of contact

Assassin’s Creed Infinity will be “not a game per se” but a hubwhich we can think of as a bit like our own Animus, through which we can buy and play various AC titles and content.

A hub that becomes mandatory: Sounds a bit like a launcher, but it could also be implemented completely differently, since playable elements should also be possible. How exactly that will look like has not yet been revealed, but the hub will be THE go-to place for Assassin’s Creed players. Because Côté already said during the Ubisoft Forward that Infinity “will be the only point of entry into the Assassin’s Creed franchise in the future.”

Using the example of Codename Red and Codename Hexe, he made it clear again: the idea is to sell Red and Hexe as a disc game (if it still exists by then), but the first thing we see during the installation get is the Infinity Hub, which we use to launch the games. New titles are to be displayed in the hub through a new area in the DNA.

Sexism issues at Ubisoft: The French developer and publisher has been accused of a toxic corporate culture since July 2020. Including far-reaching Sexism issues, misogyny and discrimination, which should be deeply rooted in the company. Consequences have already been drawn by Ubisoft, e.g. Replaced senior management staff and openly commented on the allegations, but internally, many employees feel that these measures are not sufficient.

What content should AC Infinity offer?

Infinity sees itself as a service game that is regularly supplied with new games, content and other updates, so it is constantly evolving. Côté already spoke about the following content:

  • great assassin’s creed games (Red and Hexe are already confirmed)
  • Possibly standalone multiplayer mode (Assassin’s Creed Invicuts)
  • smaller, free content
  • separate present story (we are the protagonist, not Desmond or Layla)
  • more crossover stories conceivable (possibly with Cassandra)

More variety, more possibilities

Why did Ubisoft decide to create a hub with Infinity? In the 15 years now, many AC games have accumulated and there are still many more to come, as the announcements at Ubisoft Forward already prove. Infinity aims to improve discoverability and accessibility.

Infinity also offers new possibilities. Instead of exposing yourself to a commercial risk with 150 hours of games, smaller content can also be implemented more easily via the hub. This not only promotes diversity, for example in gameplay, but also changes the intervals between releases.

An example of new possibilities is contemporary history. The majority of players only feel disturbed by this, while others wish for more of it. With Infinity, the “meta story” is outsourced to the hub. For example, people who are simply interested in Codename Red’s feudal Japan can immerse themselves in the game undisturbed. Fans of the present action, on the other hand, should get more on offer over time. Côté also spoke of the option of “integrating the past games as an abstraction in Infinity”.

Now that more is known about AC Infinity, what do you think of the platform?
