Next ASSASSIN'S CREED Location Revealed

Despite the latest installment of the Assassin's Creed franchise being just recently released, Kotaku already has the inside track on the franchise's next location and has even provided screen shots from the game. Check it out!


The follow up to this years Assassin's Creed: Unity, which was met with mixed reviews, will be set in Victorian London, a site many fans have been clamoring for. It will be released in the fall of 2015 on next gen consoles and PC platforms. Currently under the code name Assassin's Creed: Victory, this is an interesting move for Ubisoft. It seems Ubisoft will continue plowing through with more Assassin's Creed games despite a decline in quality with the games themselves. Some speculated and even hoped Ubisoft would give the franchise and breather and reevaluate their situation in order to put quality in front of quantity for a change, but it appears as if that will not be the case. What's also interesting is the game will be headed by Ubisoft Quebec (the creators of the Assassin's Creed III and Assassin's IV: Black Flag DLCs), making this their leading debut. This makes Arno the third consecutive assassin not to have a follow up (not yet at least), which may be saddening to hear for some considering many believe Arno has potential, yet it wasn't utilized in Unity and would like more closure for his character arc. Below you can find screenshots of the footage that was premiered in front of a select audience, as well as a description of the footage.


 
The video begins with an assassin, presumably the game's protagonist, climbing up a tower and looking out at the city of London. We get a quick overview of the city as the camera flies from alley to alley, showing us some of the game's potential side activities (gambling in a pub, street-racing with carriages, and so forth). We then cut back to the assassin, who leaps down to the street, makes his way into a nearby horse carriage, and accepts an assignment from a mysterious masked woman. The task: kill a man named Roderick Bulmer, who has been trafficking little girls for the assassins' ancestral enemies. "The templars must receive our message," says the woman. "You must send it in blood." Mid-conversation, the carriage is attacked, so the assassin makes his way out and takes out several enemies—who are bearing templar insignias—while keeping his balance atop the moving buggy. It's frantic. A few quick kills later, the assassin arrives at the Charing Cross railway station, where he swaps his hood for a top hat and runs through the crowd, ignoring side quests ("stop that thief!") as he hunts down Bulmer, who is standing among the crowd in the middle of a train plaza. Our assassin hops and leaps to a platform overlooking the trains, takes out a guard, then uses what appears to be a new item—a grappling hook—to swing over to Bulmer and stab him in the chest. Once Bulmer is dead, the assassin jumps onto a moving train and fights off more templar soldiers while crossing the River Thames. As the video draws to a close, our protagonist leaps from the train into a conveniently-placed haystack, then staggers forward as the camera pulls toward the London horizon. Then the logo: Assassin's Creed Victory.
