Gamers and gaymers of the world rejoice for Ubisoft have announced that today is the day that they will be revealing the latest game in their quintessential series of Assassins Creed games.
The game’s grand reveal will be broadcast live online all over the world simultaneously to reveal the new game in all it’s glory. The move is a clever one by developer Ubisoft to ensure that spoilers are avoided and achieve maximum impact on their new game. You can watch the life feed on their website at 5pm today here in the UK.
Details on the new game are thin on the ground with only a few images being available to work with, however what we have seen has been enough to get us excited for the next instalment. We hope that the rumours and speculation are accurate and that this game will be set in Victorian London, based on the elaborate cane, knuckledusters and never-ending rain we have spotted in some of the promotional images.
The Assassins Creed series has been a hit with fans since the first game was released in 2007. The game has gone on to spawn multiple sequels taking place all over history. More recently we have been comparing these games with the infamous Star Trek movies as every odd-numbered entry in the main series has tended to polarise their audiences, while their even-numbered games have been critically acclaimed hits. If this holds true, following the somewhat disappointing reviews held by French Revolution title Assassins Creed: Unity, then this game is all set to be a hit.
Tune in to the Assassins Creed website at 5pm GMT today to get in on the grand reveal along with the rest of the world!
