The new Assassin’s Creed allows assassinations in an ancient Egypt based country
The newest Assassin’s Creed is finally confirmed. After many rumours and leaks, it shows itself with a new setting, a new assassin and many missions.
So, what did we know until now? It was already in speculations that the next Assassin’s Creed will take place in an ancient Egypt. The leak of a shirt imprint showed the logo with an Eye of Horus in it. Additionally, the suspected protagonist was printed on the front wielding a bow, shield and hidden blade gauntlets. Ubisoft said that the next game is released in the actual fiscal year which runs through March 31, 2018.
Ubisoft wanted to take their time to evolve the game mechanics and deliver a great Masterpiece to their fans. In the Trailer, you can see features like a controllable eagle and an upgrade system. Even the battle system seems to be more fluent than before.
Creative Director Jean Guesdon explained the new Egyptian setting. “We know that people, when they think Egypt, they think desert,” says Jean Guesdon. “But Egypt is way more than that. You have the Nile Delta, you have the Nile River, you have tons of oases. So when you mix all that, from the green, lush fauna of the Nile Delta to the oasis of Faiyum, it’s the perfect playground.” He sees the ancient Egypt as “3,000 years of history and mysteries”. The protagonist is Bayek, a protector of this time. He comes back to Siwa, his hometown to assassinate a false oracle called Medunamun. You can see this scene in the trailer together with the first mechanics and elements in action.
The game is said to be released for PC, PS4 and Xbox One on October 27, 2017. You can pre-order the game right now on its official site. It will include an extra mission called “The Secrets of the first Pyramid”.
