Assassin's Creed Hexe

New Assassin’s Creed: Codename Hexe Details Have Reportedly Leaked Including A Witch-Like Protagonist And Powers

Which?

Frequent and fairly reliable Ubisoft leaker, Tom Henderson at Insider Gaming, has once again published new “leaked” information regarding an upcoming Assassin’s Creed title, and one that’s still largely shrouded in mystery – Assassin’s Creed: Codename Hexe.

First announced a couple of years ago alongside the still-to-be-released Assassin’s Creed: Codename Red and the Assassin’s Creed Infinity platform, Hexe appeared to be an altogether spookier entry that’s rumoured to take place around the Witch Trials of the 16th century.

Now, this new report from Insider Gaming seems to confirm this and more, describing a more linear experience with light open-world elements not unlike the earlier Assassin’s Creed games, and a supernaturally-gifted protagonist named Elsa.

Henderson claims that footage sent to him in private shows off Elsa’s witch-like abilities, which include being able to possess nearby cats and use them to distract enemies and divert their attention. The footage supposedly shows off a “dark and gloomy” setting in the streets of a 16th-century Central European city. The claims also include the appearance of a “Fear System” in the game which is seemingly inspired by the Jack the Ripper DLC for Assassin’s Creed Syndicate.

Earlier reports from Henderson and Insider Gaming suggest that Ubisoft is planning to release a new mainline Assassin’s Creed game every couple of years and fill in the gaps with smaller experiences, starting with Assassin’s Creed Red and going into the multiplayer-based Invictus and the spooky Hexe in 2025 and 2026 respectively.

These experiences will supposedly live within the new Assassin’s Creed Infinity platform that Ubisoft wants to serve as a live, all-encompassing destination for players to engage with the series and ongoing content. With a big Ubisoft Forward showcase scheduled for June, we’ll no doubt hear more about at least some of this soon.
