New Assassin’s Creed Game’s Setting Being Revealed On A Stream

Ubisoft has kicked off a stream that will reveal the setting of the next Assassin’s Creed game. Interestingly, the setting will be revealed via a unique piece of artwork produced by BossLogic, an acclaimed artist known for his awesome Street Fighter pieces and, more recently, his collaborations with Marvel and DC.

BossLogic will be streaming his progress and, by the end of the showcase, we’ll know where the new Assassin’s Creed will take place. Those who watch the official stream on Twitch have a chance to earn a drop for a future Assassin’s Creed skin. However, the event can also be seen on Mixer, YouTube, Twitter, and Facebook.

We’re currently a few hours into the stream and the setting hasn’t been fully revealed, but the artwork shows a few notable points. On one side of a silhouetted figure is an icy sea and some ships, while on the other is a land-based battle scene with a castle in the background. This may be indicating the rumored Viking setting, but we’ll have to wait for the stream to finish to know for sure.

The Assassin’s Creed franchise underwent a drastic evolution with Assassin’s Creed Origins. The game, which was set in ancient Egypt, took on more role-playing design elements. Most notably, it introduced a large number of quests that players could choose to undertake. Its follow up, 2018’s Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey, built on this with more intricate systems, a vast open-world, and multiple protagonists, among many other additions. Ubisoft then skipped releasing a new mainline entry in 2019.

Given Ubisoft’s investment in the technology powering this new iteration of the Assassin’s Creed franchise, it’s likely this new game will bear some similarities to Origins and Odyssey, with some fresh twists of its own. It’s unclear the extent of this reveal, and if we’ll get a glimpse at gameplay or some sort of story tease, but we’ll keep you updated with more information as it becomes available.
