Witches and Whispers: Assassin’s Creed Hexe Might Spook Players with a Familiar Fear

Assassin’s Creed isn’t slowing down! Ubisoft is building on the momentum of last year’s Mirage with several upcoming titles, including Assassin’s Creed Hexe.

Set in 16th-century Central Europe, Hexe will delve into witchcraft and the paranormal – but it might also borrow some tricks from the past.

A recent leak from Insider Gaming (take it with a grain of salt!) suggests Hexe could feature a revamped “Fear System.”

This mechanic might feel familiar to veterans who remember the Jack the Ripper DLC in Syndicate, where fear became a weapon.

Here’s the spooky speculation: the leak claims players might control Elsa, the rumored protagonist, and use a cat to distract enemies.

Additionally, Hexe might feature a modified version of the Fear System, allowing Elsa to utilize supernatural means to terrify foes.

Ubisoft hasn’t confirmed these details, and development can change course.

But with a focus on witchcraft, it’s easy to imagine fear tactics playing a role in Hexe’s combat or stealth mechanics.

While a release date remains under wraps, estimations place Hexe in 2026, following Assassin’s Creed Red and Infinity.

Red’s confirmed launch window is Ubisoft’s 2025 fiscal year, with rumors suggesting a late 2024 release – though Ubisoft hasn’t solidified that date.

One thing’s for sure: Assassin’s Creed Hexe is shaping up to be a unique and potentially frightening entry in the series.

Stay tuned for official news from Ubisoft to learn more about Elsa’s abilities and how fear might factor into Hexe’s gameplay.
