Assassin’s Creed Infinity exclusively an AC gaming platform? It wouldn’t make sense and Ubisoft knows it perfectly well

-

When Assassin’s Creed Infinity was introduced by insiders, none of us really knew whether it would be a multiplayer game or a single player adventure in the desired setting. There was even talk of a position in Japan at one time. A few days after the gradually increasing rumors about this production, Ubisoft himself spoke, who said that we will be dealing with the HUB of the series.

More details were not revealed then and we were asked to be patient. More than a year has passed since this statement, and finally we had to wait less than 14 months for French developers to reveal the secret about Assassin’s Creed Infinity. Something has been said about the game (though I don’t know if it wouldn’t be better to just call it a platform) and the situation around “big changes for the Ubisoft series” is clearer.

Not an application, not an ordinary game, but a “narrative platform”?

Assassin’s Creed Infinity aims to introduce a more coherent approach to game development from the hooded assassin franchise. In In recent years, due to the large-scale projects such as Odyssey and Valhalla, quite often we had to wait more than a year to be able to play a new adventure. Ubisoft wants to avoid such interruptions, and AC Infinity is to help studios (with an emphasis on Quebec and Montreal branches, i.e. teams dealing with the development of the series) create innovative solutions and then implement them in their projects.

Sounds a bit complicated, because how is the Assassin’s Creed Infinity application supposed to help developers create games? At present, this has not been clarified by the developers who themselves believe that the platform “has no direct comparison”. So we cannot say that it will be an ordinary launcher that allows you to launch new games under the Assassin’s Creed banner, because developers are to prepare something that will combine “all experiences and the community of players”.

Such a description of a revolutionary application AC Infinity sounds a bit as if this service is supposed to be something like an Animus, i.e. a virtual reality machine that allows the user to use genetic memory and its in-depth “exploration”. Since Ubisoft has confirmed that AC Infinity is neither a game nor a typical platform for launching subsequent productions about hooded killers, in my opinion it should be a HUB that will allow you to create your own avatar, enter the Abstergo headquarters, integrate with other players and in the meantime play its games – alone or in cooperation with friends / random.

Assassin’s Creed Infinity will not be a free HUB


So far, it has been confirmed that AC Infinity will include Assassin’s Creed Red, Assassin’s Creed Hexe and Assassin’s Creed Multiplayer. The first production is supervised by Ubisoft Quebec and in this case we will be brought to Japan, where we will play the role of a ninja. It will be an RPG for hours, such as Valhalla. Ubisoft Montreal plows over the second position – in this case, we will experience a story related to witch hunting, but the developers are to mix the species and this title will not be a typical, well-known Assassin. We know even less about the Assassin’s Creed online game, because so far it has only been revealed that it is made by a French company.

According to Marc-Alexis Cote, the director responsible for the development of Assassin’s Creed, the very entrance to the world of Assassin’s Creed Infinity – contrary to appearances and various rumors – will not be free. Even Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot once confirmed that the platform will receive many narrative elements that we will not get to know for free. Thus, my guesses that AC Infinity will lead us to the “heart of Abstergo” are growing.

Since we will need AC Infinity to play AC Red or AC Hexe, it turns out that even if we do not want to see the revolutionary HUB of the series, we will still have to buy it to experience the adventure in Japan or Germany. It has not been verified verbatim whether we will launch the games just mentioned only by the said platform, but the developers say that it will be required.

Changes to the Assassin’s Creed brand were needed, but were they that drastic? We will live, we will see, I am personally intrigued by AC Infinity, because it can turn out to be a really good, community-engaging HUB for the series.
