Everyone should be more or less excited about Ubisoft’s upcoming Assassin’s Creed title, which would be Assassin’s Creed 5. The latest leak has revealed something big: after all, the pyramids of Egypt are the only wonders of the ancient world that still survive, and so to see renders of the Egyptian pyramids for the new Assassin’s Creed 5 title does clear up the air somewhat.
In the image that you see above, the 'pause menu' image showcases an Egyptian pyramid that looks as though it is glass-like, perhaps that is because it has not yet been fully rendered. Of course, one can always think of the Louvre in Paris, France, but that is a different story for another day. While no word on an actual release date for Assassin’s Creed 5 for the Xbox One and Sony PS4 platforms have been forthcoming, it does look as though there will be no annual rollout for the franchise for 2016, marking a break from the previous years.
It is whispered that Ubisoft have been been working on Assassin’s Creed 5 for a minimum of one year after the previous edition of the Assassin’s Creed franchise made a huge splash, wowing gamers with Syndicate that saw Victorian England as the main setting.
The latest leaked render also does jive with rumors and leaks which were revealed earlier this January, citing that the upcoming Assassin's Creed title will be released only in 2017, with Egypt being the backdrop for the title, while carrying the codename Assassin's Creed Empire.
There might be a new protagonist in the upcoming Assassin’s Creed title, according to an alleged employee of Ubisoft, citing that this character will be an ex-slave who might find himself at home being a librarian in an alternate life as he barely speaks.
Not only that, in the new title, one should be able to control an eagle -- surely this would be useful for scouting purposes, not to mention to send messages from one place to another without having to rely on the traditional dove courier service. Word has it that the new Assassin’s Creed 5 will feature full "player progression", a "freeform combat system" and colorful game world, comprising of azure blue skies, lush vegetation, desert sequences and mirages, in addition to getting around bodies of water in a boat while galloping on horses.
As for the title, it might even be released only in 2018 -- which is a fair amount of time to go still. Hopefully by then, it would be a game that is well done and programmed, sporting nothing but the best features and ability to keep the gamer constantly drawn in.
Before now and the new Assassin’s Creed 5 game, perhaps those of us who are itching for a live action movie of this video game franchise can rest easy knowing that Michael Fassbender would be starring in the first Assassin’s Creed film this coming December 21st. How will he do against Rogue One on the silver screen remains to be seen, but surely the universe is big enough to handle both of these huge surefire box office hits.
