Next Assassin’s Creed will be Viking epic called Ragnarök
Ubisoft’s much-anticipated follow-up to Assassin’s Creed Odyssey will be an epic Viking adventure called Ragnarök.
Secrecy surrounds Ubisoft’s projects in its Montreuil HQ in France, but an insider has let the cat out of the bag for the studio’s major release next year which is expected to be available for both PS4 and the PS5.
While confirming the game was being worked on for Xbox One, our source curiously dithered over the Scarlett project and could not confirm if they were aware of any team working on a Ragnarök for Microsoft’s upcoming platform. They did, however, hint that they were pressing ahead with a Google Stadia version.
In Norse mythology, Ragnarök refers to the final battle at the end of the world fought between the gods led by Odin and his opponents – the fire giants and various demons led by Loki and Surtr.
The saga forms much of the gameplay for ‘Assassin’s Creed: Ragnarök’ which takes place across a map of Scandinavia and Britain, meaning it must be set around the end of the 8th century when Vikings first invaded England after landing at Lindisfarne in 793AD.
The insider, who also says both male and female lead assassins can be played, confirmed that the Brotherhood recruitment will be revived while maintaining the popular gameplay enjoyed in Odyssey.
