There has been an image and a bunch of information leaked onto the 4chan /v/ board about the upcoming Assassin’s Creed Game. Earlier this month it was also leaked that the next Assassin’s Creed game will be set in Greece. Now there is more evidence to back that claim up.
The screenshot included in this post is claimed to be ‘an early build of Athens.
Here is the actual post as well.
Takes place during the rise of Flavian Dynasty in Achaea, Macedonia, Thrace and the Aegean Sea, but not Asia Minor (most of Modern Greece)
Rhodes will be in game, but Crete will be a DLC similar to THO
Templars are families that control cities and the three provinces as Roman Clients and administer propaganda for the new Emperor
Can choose to play as male or female protagonist from Sparta
Major differences in main story, targets, skills and customization based on character chosen
Character story arcs do intersect and choice does not affect MD outcome
Larger emphasis on MD
Bayek/ Aya not in game but play an important role in the story
Screenshot is an early build of Athens
Several cities play larger roles in the story, making the player return unlike in Origins
Largest cities are Sparta, Athens, Corinth, Delphi, Thessalonica, Phillippi
About same map size of Origins with water
Like Assassin’s Creed Origins with more naval focus, about 30% naval
Social Stealth will return
More customization options
Coming out first/second quarter 2019 like Far Cry 5 for emphasis on Splinter Cell Holiday 2018
Next game will take place in Rome possibly Japan after that
Judea under Herod was discussed but not pursued as a full game due to likely political/ cultural backlash but Judea and the Sicarii will be a DLC similar to CotP
If all of these are true it could be an incredible game. They seem to have taken on board the feedback that people gave them from Origins and made the next game in the series even better. It is good to see more naval focus as well as many people think that Black Flag is the strongest game in the whole series.
The leak also suggested that players will be able to choose from a male or female protagonist who will be Spartan. Depending on which character that you choose there will apparently be big differences in story, assassination targets, skills, armour and even weapons. Having said that the main narrative won’t be different. This will keep coming back for more and more as people will want to play different stories.
You will have to wait almost a year for this game to come out though as it was stated that it is coming out early 2019. However I think we will find out if this is true at E3 this year. Keep your eyes peeled for an announcement about the new game then. We will of course be covering all of the E3 announcements ourselves so stay tuned for that.
This is of course not be found to be fake or true yet so don’t take this as gospel as to what the next Assassin’s creed will be. It does however line up nicely with everything else that we have learnt so far about the new release.
Where do you want to see the next Assassin’s Creed?
