New Assassin’s Creed gets slow-mo reveal – definitely looks like Vikings
Ubisoft is unveiling the setting of the next Assassin’s Creed via an ongoing livestream and it looks like those Ragnarok rumours are true.
The next Assassin’s Creed is being revealed in a very unusual, and slow, way via a livestream in which movie poster artist Bosslogic draws a piece of artwork representing the game.
It’s not clear exactly how long it’s supposed to take but at time of writing it seems pretty clear that it is going to have a Viking setting, just as the rumours suggested.
And if it’s not Vikings it certainly seems like it must be set sometime during the European medieval period, unless that armour and castle is some kind of massive red herring.
Previous rumours had suggested the game would be called Assassin’s Creed Ragnarok and that it will be set in 800 BC, with a map that includes large parts of Scandinavia and the British Isles.
We’re not experts but that castle looks too high-tech for that period, but we’ll have to see. The rumours also claimed that the game will feature more mythological beings than any previous game, including Odin and Loki and trips to the nine realms.
Only a few alleged screenshots have leaked out before, as well as what seems to be a teaser in The Division 2, but despite Ancient Rome seeming to be a more obvious way to cap off the last two games there have been very few creditable rumours of anything other than Vikings.
Perhaps the biggest question to be answered today though, is whether the game will be out this year or not.
That was apparently the original plan, but with the turmoil caused by the coronavirus it could well have been delayed, although recently Ubisoft indicated that its teams are coping very well with working from home – so perhaps not.
