Finally, the nature of the next Assassin’s Creed instalment has been confirmed.
During an insanely long live stream part-hosted by Ubisoft, it has been revealed that the next Assassin’s Creed title will take you into the story of a band of Vikings, tearing it up in Medieval England.
The stream was also co-hosted by BossLogic, who slowly created a piece of art that would cleverly spell out the theme of the new Assassin’s Creed game.
The image details the rolling green hills of the British countryside and the stoic stone castles that shouts ‘Medieval England’.
Another side to it depicts a Viking long ship navigating stormy waters, all but confirming that the rumours of sailing being implemented into the title are true.
And hopefully, that will factor massively into the exploration of the game’s humongous open world platform.
The final piece of the artwork revealed was that of a Viking holding a pretty brutal axe, decorated in the crest of the Assassin.
Ubisoft has confirmed that a full trailer will be released at the back of this week.
Rumours had suggested that the game would be called ‘Ragnarok’, but surely other publishers and media distribution companies will have other ideas about that one.
There has been huge excitement among fans to embark on a Viking adventure style game, with many pleased that Assassin’s Creed looks to build on the fantasy and RPG elements of the game a lot more for this title.
Mixed with the fact Ubisoft’s creative juices for expansive open world platforms, they could be on to a winner with this instalment.
With speculation and rumour now dead in the water, fans of the franchise can now get excited for the game’s release date and pick apart the trailer frame by frame until they can get their hands on it.
The franchise has captured the imagination of fans the world over when the original title was released in 2007. It has since spawned 11 major instalments and 21 overall games and is one of Ubisoft’s biggest titles alongside the Tom Clancy series.
