As this year comes to a close, rumors of unannounced 2020 projects have steadily increased. Today’s big rumor covers Assassin’s Creed Ragnarok, the next big game in the mega-popular series.
It has been rumored for awhile that the next Assasssin’s Creed game will deal with a Vikings set and these latest rumors really seem to solidify it, IF they’re true. The post from the Reddit leak below:
The game was codenamed kingdom but now is called Ragnarok. Release fall 2020 on both old and new gen. Reveal during the playstation event on feb. Viking setting, includes Scandinavia and a big part of England, including London and Plimouth. Choice between a woman and a man, but there’s no impact on the story, that is the same. Protagonist, woman or male, is called Jora, and become an Assassin during the game. Brotherhood system is back, with recruitable npcs.
You can still use a boat to travel on sea, but there’s less naval combat than black flag or Odyssey imo. Story-wise, the game is focused on a revenge quest, with a big part of first civilization story. Realms like asgard or Jottuneim can be visited in the game, mythical beigs such as Odin or Loki play a big part in the story, as well as the Ygdrassil. Game has a present day part but, as much as Origins or Odyssey. It will conclude the present day storyline. gameplay is the same as odyssey, with improved mechanics and further rpg elements.
As always, remain skeptical until Ubisoft makes the official announcement next year. One more interesting fact is that another rumor has it being announced at the PlayStation 5 reveal which is expected to take place in February 2020. We will keep you updated on all the Assassin’s Creed news when you need it.
