An excellent concept movie envisions what Assassin’s Creed Infinity may be like if the game were created with Unreal Engine 5 and was set in Persia.
Using Assassin’s Creed Infinity as a model, fans predicted that the action of the game, codenamed Rift, would take place in Baghdad and have Basim from Assassin’s Creed Valhalla as the primary character. Iran also showed up in the leaks, which led to fans including the locations of Persepolis, the tomb of Cyrus, and other sites in the gathering.

The assassin is seen scouting out a magnificent Persian environment in the video made by the TeaserPlay YouTube channel. It features a sizeable walled-in city, vast open landscapes, ancient ruins, a desert oasis, and more. Unfortunately, not much is shown in how the game would play, but it would presumably take its cues from other Assassin’s Creed games, focusing on parkour, stealth-action, and the like.
Assassin’s Creed fans currently have very little information about the content of Assassin’s Creed Infinity to go on other than rumors. However, further details about the project may be revealed during the upcoming Ubisoft Forward event, which is slated to start at noon PT on Saturday, September 10. Additionally, uncertainty exists around whether Ubisoft will show the Assassin’s Creed franchise’s future during the presentation, which is believed to include both Assassin’s Creed Infinity and Assassin’s Creed Rift, or simply one of the following games.

Assassin’s Creed Rift is apparently a more compact version of the series’ earlier titles for the uninformed. Baghdad is reportedly the setting for Assassin’s Creed Rift, though this has not yet been verified. Additionally, the release date of Assassin’s Creed Rift has reportedly been postponed to 2023 from when it was initially anticipated to go on sale later this year.
