During last year's Ubisoft Forward event, we learned about Assassin's Creed Codename Red, a new game in the AC franchise, but set in Japan.

That's right, after thousands of comments on social media, Reddit, and everywhere else, we're finally getting an Assassin's Creed game in feudal Japan. Ubisoft Quebec studio has taken up the mantle of working on the new entry, and it looks set to be something special. Continue reading our guide to learn about Assassin's Creed Codename Red's trailers, gameplay, and other details.

Assassin's Creed Codename Red trailers 

So far, we only have one thirty-second-long Assassin's Creed Codename Red reveal trailer that aired during Ubisoft Forward 2022. The trailer shows a few significant details like the return of Animus, the game's setting, and a brief cinematic look at the environment.

We also catch a glimpse of our new main character wielding a Katana-like sword and hidden blade. They're dressed in an awesome-looking black Shinobi outfit.

At the moment, no gameplay details are available for Assassin's Creed Codename Red; All we know is that it is set in Feudal Japan and will feature an open-world RPG experience. That means it will likely be similar to the gameplay structure we saw with Assassin's Creed Origins, Odyssey, and Valhalla.

Marc-Alexis Cote, the Vice President and Executive Producer for the Assassin's Creed franchise, said that Assassin's Creed Codename Red is the "next premium flagship title" and will serve as the "future of our open-world RPG games on Assassin's Creed."

As more details are revealed over time we'll update you right here, but in the meantime, check out our rankings of the best Assassin's Creed games.
