The Assassinís Creed franchise has been long known for authenticity when it comes to locations design Ė from the Renaissance Venice or Rome in Assassinís Creed II and Brotherhood, to Paris during the French Revolution in Assassinís Creed: Unity, to London under Industrial Revolution in Assassinís Creed: Syndicate. The same approach applies to the upcoming Assassinís Creed Origins. Despite having much less reference material this time, the team at Ubisoft is putting a lot of effort to recreate some landmark constructions as well as tombs, replicated as closely as possible.
A fan has taken it to Twitter to share another Assassinís Creed: Origins leak Ė a picture of a T-shirt with the gameís main hero printed on it together with the protagonistís alleged name Ba Yek. In it we can see the Egyptian assassin as he is turning around with his hood on and a long bow and shield in his hands Ė all in all, he looks very much like the character on a screenshot that emerged online some time ago. What adds to todayís leakís credibility is the fact that Ashraf Ismail from Ubisoft commented on the picture, saying: ďNice t-shirtĒ.
A person who claims to be a Ubisoft employee took it to 4chan to reveal lots of new information about the upcoming Assassinís Creed: Origins. If the leak is true, this is supposed to be the first part of a trilogy focused on a new protagonist, the second of which is to be set in Greece. Assassinís Creed: Origins will also have similarities to The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, especially when it comes to sailing and combat. Another interesting thing is that the game has no towers Ė a signature element of the series. Instead, players will use an eagle companion to scout the area nearby.
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.
