Rumors surrounding the next Assassin’s Creed game have been going wild lately, as they do every spring.
The newest, and seemingly most valid rumor, is that one of the Assassin’s Creed games said to come out this fall will be set in 18th century Paris. Kotaku obtained and published several screenshots from the game, codenamed Assassin’s Creed Unity, which are included below.
The screenshots include several Parisian locations such as Notre Dame and the Seine River. The pictures also show off a new male assassin wearing a black uniform with a rapier and a pistol.
One of the most notable differences between these screen shots and former Assassin’s Creed games is the button interface in the top corner. They now include “parkour up” and “parkour down”.
Assassin’s Creed Unity is rumored to be coming out on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One this fall. The other rumored title is code-named Comet, which is said to only be coming to PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
All of this is rumor so far, so we will be sure and update you when more concrete information is released.
Let me start this off by saying that I am a HUGE history buff and I absolutely love the Assassin’s Creed series. I think the idea that the next game will be set in Paris is a wonderful idea! If it truly is in the 18th century then it will most definitely revolve around the French Revolution and I think that would be extremely fun to play. On top of all of that, Paris is absolutely beautiful and would be incredible to run around the city. The pictures look real, and quite amazing, so I would be surprised if this rumor is not true. If you’ll remember, Black Flag was leaked the winter/spring before it was released as well, so it is about time for a reveal!
