Assassin’s Creed Hexe is shrouded in mystery, but we've gleaned some intriguing insights from a report by Insider Gaming. Marc-Alexis Côté, the series’ Vice President and Executive Producer, hinted at its departure from past entries, signaling a fresh direction. Developed by Ubisoft Montreal, Hexe appears to embrace witchcraft, with whispers placing its setting in Central Europe during the 16th-century Holy Roman Empire, as Bloomberg suggests.

What We Learnt About Assassin's Creed Hexe

Though still in early development, Hexe promises a departure from the sprawling open-world formula. Instead, it opts for a more linear narrative with elements of exploration reminiscent of earlier Assassin’s Creed titles. Insider Gaming has uncovered that Hexe will feature a single female protagonist named Elsa, wielding supernatural powers.

One tantalizing ability showcased involves Elsa evading 16th-century German soldiers by possessing a nearby cat, deftly manipulating the environment to her advantage. This snippet of gameplay unveils a somber atmosphere in the city's cobblestone streets, hinting at the game's dark undertones.

Hexe is rumored to incorporate a Fear System akin to the one seen in Assassin’s Creed Syndicate’s 'Jack The Ripper' DLC. Given the historical backdrop of witch trials and persecution, such a mechanic seems fitting, potentially adding depth to the gameplay experience.

Marc-Alexis Côté's remarks about Hexe being "a different type of game" resonate. In a landscape dominated by sprawling RPGs, Hexe offers a refreshing deviation, promising diverse locales and nuanced representations of historical periods.

pecific details about gameplay are scarce, but it is expected to deviate from the recent RPG-heavy style of the series. There are rumors that it might be a smaller-scale experience compared to recent titles.

Assassin's Creed Hexe is being developed by Ubisoft Montreal, the same studio that created the very first Assassin's Creed game. The game is still in its early stages of development, and is not expected to be released before 2026. It will be part of the new Assassin's Creed Infinity platform.

Overall, Assassin's Creed Hexe is shrouded in mystery, but it promises to be a unique entry in the series with a fresh direction. Fans are eagerly awaiting more information about the game's story, setting, and gameplay mechanics.
