There have been several reports in the past that the next Assassin’s Creed game will be set in Egypt and fresh details have emerged today.
According to a report, the next game will be called Assassin’s Creed: Empire and will indeed take place in Ancient Egypt. It’ll feature a former slave as the main playable character, who is going to be a distant ancestor of Altair.
The game is being developed by Ubisoft Montreal, the same studio which made Assassin’s Creed: Black Flag. The world map of the game is going to be apparently three times bigger than that of Assassin’s Creed: Black Flag.
The main character would have a darker skin tone than those featured in previous AC titles, and the game will also feature desert mirages as part of the gameplay. It’s also rumored that the main character would have a Eagle as a companion, who will be providing various useful gameplay help – which is a series first.
Take all of these with a grain of salt but like they say, there is no smoke without fire.
