A 7 minute video was leaked from Ubisoft earlier this month, and it looks like that video confirms that the 2015’s main Assassin’s Creed game will be set in the Victorian era in London. The video was removed from pretty much everywhere.
The setting is maybe a bit surprising, because many were expecting Saint Petersburg and Moscow as the two main locations of the next AC game. Looks like Ubisoft wanted to make this game before the Russian episode, which takes place in time slightly before the Russian Revolution, so maybe they can go deeper into details and conspiracies later on.
The newest weapon of our main character will be the grappling hook which will also enable us to not just swing between buildings and climb the high ones, but to be able to swing across carriages to reach our target and deliver the killing blow with ease and charisma.
The game looks really good, the nightfall over the victorian London looks impressively beautiful.
Down there, there are bars, hotels and cafés occupied by people who look like a thousand ants, walking the city, visiting the park, getting in and out from their moving carriages.
In the background we are able to see the industrial district of the city as a hundred chimneys are letting the black smoke out.
The whole screenshot is just magnificent.
Ubisoft wrote the following message regarding these screenshots and this information:
“The team in our Quebec studio has been hard at work on the particular game in question for the past few years, and we’re excited to officially unveil what the studio has been working on at a later date. In the meantime, our number one priority is enhancing the experience of Assassin’s Creed Unity for players.”
So it looks like it’s officially confirmed, again. As you know, not just the main details of this Assassin’s Creed episode came public a bit earlier, than Ubisoft planned to release them, but the same thing happened to Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag.
By the way I am still a bit interested how that 7 minute gameplay video got out of hands, or maybe “out of cloud”? On the flipside though, as a fan of the series, it’s always nice to know a little more about the upcoming Assassin’s Creed a bit earlier.
