Ubisoft has commented on the future of Assassin’s Creed by way of a 15th anniversary celebration broadcast last night.
The packed show included announcements for the latest game in the series, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. However, the publisher also confirmed it’ll hold a “very special event” this September to address the future of the series. While it didn’t give specifics, it seemed to imply this could be a new game, but whether it’s the rumoured Valhalla spin-off or Assassin’s Creed Infinity, we’ll have to wait and see.
There’s plenty to be getting on with in the meantime, however. Over on Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, the game will be getting a second year of free content. These will include Festivals, an Armory Update, Mastery Challenge Pack 2 and new tombs. However, the team has now also confirmed their most ambitious addition yet in the form of The Forgotten Saga.
The Forgotten Saga will be a new rogue-lite inspired game mode. Players will continue Odin’s journey and descend into Niflheim, where they must face hordes of monsters in order to reach Loki’s daughter Hel. While death may send you back to the start, you’ll be able to earn rewards and abilities and progress a little further each run.
On top of all this, Ubisoft has revealed it’ll also release one more story-based chapter for the main game. This new episode is being touted as the closing chapter in Eivor’s story, and it’ll be free to all players. Before then, the game’s history based Discovery Mode is also now available as a standalone title.
It certainly sounds like an exciting future already for the Assassin’s Creed series. We’ll have to wait until September to see where it goes next. You can check out the showcase’s kickoff show below, or see the full broadcast replay here.
