New Assassins Creed Project Could Be Set In Egypt
While this may just be a cool piece of artwork. It could very well be a teaser for the next Assassins Creed project. The image was posted on UbiWorkshop’s official and was drawn by Polish artist Grzegorz Domaradzki (try pronouncing that when you’re pissed) with nothing to explain what the image is for besides UbiWorkshop telling us what it isn’t for on its official Twitter account: “Oh, and before you ask, this has nothing to do with Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood.”
Right, so Brotherhood is not involved in this in any way but then what is this artwork for? It can’t be for the upcoming comic series currently being worked on by Cameron Stewart and Karl Kerschl since they would then have drawn it. The nature of their comic is also still unknown and could therefore be about anything although they have teased that it will be “based on an immensely popular (Ubisoft) property.”
So, let’s dissect. The setting is of course Egyptian while there are numerous clues to the fact that it could be related to Assassins Creed. Firstly, there’s the character’s armour which sports the now-familiar belt that both Altair and Ezio wore. Then there’s the letters ‘A C’ in the little diamond. the eagle is also a bit of a hint since both Assassins Creed game’s characters names directly translate to ‘eagle’. Lastly, and perhaps most tellingly, we have the hidden-blade which you can just about see, courtesy of the blood dripping down from it. What strikes me as odd is that the character is holding a head in his left hand. This doesn’t fit with the silent and deadly way of the assassins that has become the trademark of the series. instead, it brings slightly more barbaric ideologies to mind. Could this be the bloody origin of the Creed?
It definitely seems like a cool concept and if done right, could make a really good spin-off title. Conversely, it could also be a teaser for an Assassins Creed comic series. Perhaps following the Creed through time or something.
