Assassin's Creed: Empire alleged leaked screenshot emerged

If this isn't an Assassin's Creed: Empire leaked screenshot, then what is it? We'll probably know for sure at this year's E3.

Assassinís Creed fans on NeoGAF and Reddit have dug out what seems to be a screenshot from Assassinís Creed: Empire, the next installment to Ubisoftís key action game franchise, reportedly set in ancient Egypt. Although the quality of the photo is very poor, we can clearly see an armed character taking a stance similar to what weíve seen in previous Assassinís Creed games, standing in something that looks like a pyramid entrance. Note also that the shield on the manís back has the letter A drawn on it, and the text at the bottom of the screen suggests the location is set in Giza, a city in ancient Egypt.

This is reportedly a rumored Assassinís Creed: Empire screenshot.

A few months ago a similar leak revealed the appearance of the pause menu in Assassinís Creed: Empire, which, if legit, pretty much confirmed that the game will take us to Egypt. Moreover, the next AC is reported to have a world three times bigger than the one in Assassinís Creed IV: Black Flag, where the main hero Ė a slave looking a bit like Altair Ė will move around on foot, by horse and by boat. As for gameplay, it is said to somewhat resemble The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, with more emphasis on action adventure than stealth. Of course, these are all just rumors, so you should take them with a grain of salt.
