Ubisoft to connect Assassin's Creed Red, Jade, and Hexe with Assassin's Creed Infinity

Assassin's Creed Red and Codename Jade are the first two AAA titles that will be a part of Assassin's Creed Infinity.

We heard more about Assassin's Creed Infinity at this year's Forward showcase, but it didn't help clarify anything about the upcoming "hub" at all.

Several years later, Ubisoft is finally giving fans what they want.

After an initial reveal last year, Ubisoft finally dropped details about Infinity and it's not any less confusing.

As per the French publisher, Infinity will connect several Assassin's Creed games and allow for the ongoing support of the same projects via content updates over its lifetime. Ubisoft has described it as a "single entry point for fans" that's made specifically to help "unite all different experiences and players, together in meaningful ways."

Ubisoft confirmed that it sees Assassin's Creed as the vehicle that will take them out of their current financial predicament.

Project lead Marc-Alexis Côté's interview with IGN didn't help either. Côté explains that the game will feature both paid and free content as well as past and future entries. The first one will be the Japan-themed project, Assassin's Creed Red. Meanwhile, Assassin's Creed Jade and Hexe will join soon after. But, while players can launch Jade and Red from Infinity, they can also buy them like any other Assassin's Creed game. Axios also claims that Infinity will be where tie the modern-day narrative of the main games together.

At first glance, Infinity is similar to Fortnite. Epic Games' hit battle royale shooter houses a lot of games by way of its Creative Mode. But, instead of player-created content, Infinity will only have games made by Ubisoft. In a way, the new Assassin's Creed games will essentially act as mods for Infinity. However, players can still launch games outside of Infinity, which kind of defeats the whole purpose of having a singular hub.

Hopefully, Ubisoft isn't trying to do too much with Infinity. Mirage is already a step in the right direction.

In the meantime, fans can look forward to The Last Chapter DLC for Valhalla coming out in a few months.
