I am sorry if the front page of Kotaku reads like an advertisement for Ubisoft right now, but do you want to know the wildest thing about it all? That’s not even everything that the French company announced recently in the world of Assassin’s Creed during its big Ubisoft Forward event. There was so much Assassin’s Creed, Ubisoft held an entire showcase for the open-world series today.
We knew it was coming, of course. And Ubisoft has always been a company that has had multiple Assassin’s Creed irons in the fire. But on the other hand, there’s a reason why this is the first year a series-exclusive segment was necessary. Let’s go over it, shall we?
In addition to finally ending Assassin’s Creed Valhalla with a free content update that wraps up the story, Ubisoft is making an AssCreed set in Japan, which is technically the hot-ticket mainline series item after fans begged for that setting for so long. But the company is also really hyping up the “back to basics” Assassin’s Creed Mirage, which is set 20 years before Valhalla. And don’t forget, Valhalla just got a new mode not that long ago, too. Valhalla has been getting steady updates this entire time.
