New Assassin’s Creed Game To Be Announced Next Week


Remember when we first heard about the next Assassin’s Creed game being set in Victorian-era London? Well, Ubisoft is finally set to reveal much more of the game itself soon. They have released a new reveal site, teasing that the next Assassin’s Creed game will be officially revealed on Tuesday, May 12th. A live stream of the world premiere is scheduled for a 5 PM GMT (12 PM EST, 9 AM PST). The logos for PC, PS4, Xbox One, Wii U, PS3 and Xbox 360 are listed at the bottom of the page, although no official platforms have been confirmed yet.

Based on the one screenshot we’ve seen so far, this new entry in Ubisoft’s generation-spanning open world action-adventure game will be just as dark and grimy as you would expect London to be in the 19th century, however our protagonist has some tricks up his sleeve. Industry brings modernization, and you can use grappling hooks from higher-up platforms to swing down and strike at targets quickly and smoothly. Furthermore, lamposts and carriages look to be new set pieces at the disposal of the level design team.

A source to Kotaku insists that this new Assassin’s Creed game will no longer be subtitled Victory. Instead, the game is supposed to be called Assassin’s Creed Syndicate, implying there will be a renewed focus on the Syndicate that were introduced in Assassin’s Creed III. Seeing how there will be three entries from the Chronicles series joining this new AAA venture that will (presumably) be released by this holiday season, that’s a minimum of four separate Assassin’s Creed games to be released this year. Even in an intriguing new locale and time era, Ubisoft is really tempting the fates of market saturation by churning out even more entries into this franchise.

Perhaps we might even get a playable female lead this time around?
