Update: It has been confirmed that the new game is Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla. There will be a full scale reveal tomorrow at 8 AM PT. Stay tuned here for more coverage.
Original: A new Assassin’s Creed is being teased right now from Ubisoft. They started a Photoshop reveal at 5 AM PT where they’re slowly revealing the setting of the game.
It’s been over a year and a half since Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey was released. Both Odyssey and Origins, released the year prior, were commercial successes. They changed up what some saw as stale game play, and as a result sit on metacritic at an 87 and 85 respectively.
It remains to be seen if they plan on keeping the combat similar to the last two games or if they decide to go back to their roots, but since it looks like it will be Vikings themed, we can expect similar combat to the two recent additions. Similarly, ship battles could also be returning as those were a fan favorite in the previous games, and it allowed for a change in the action.
As of the time of this writing, it definitely seems to be Vikings related. Time will tell if this is the setting of the new story, but it seems to be a safe bet. The Vikings theme has been rumored for awhile now and this reveal has stayed in line with that. Stay tuned to Generation Xbox for continuing coverage on the new Assassin’s Creed game and much more.
