A further zoomed out image has been leaked early for the upcoming Assassin’s Creed game which confirms the Egypt setting rumor is true.

As you can see in the further zoomed out image, the player is about to enter a pyramid which could not be seen in the original zoomed in image. If you also zoom in a little on the code at the bottom of the above image you will see it clearly says “GIZA” too which also makes it very obvious that it’s set in Egypt. The zoomed in image however does make some thing a little clearer and makes it even more likely that it’s an Egypt setting which you can see below.

The icon above which says “5 m” looks very similar to a pharaoh’s sarcophage.

    shield in AS series? srsly?
    more like this is new unannounced game.

    • Sarcastic Duck

      since when the assassins are not allowed to use shields?

      • Bogdan Bachinskiy

        since we have 6 or so games without shields, and historically, assassin is silent murderer, not footman.

        • Cribouille

          Shields were abandoned as soon as firearms and especially cannons were invented. Technically, Altaïr could have used a shield, but Levantine Assassins never used any during training as they wanted to keep their hidden blade hand free. Makes more sense for an Egyptian Assassin to have one, as it can easily parry a volley of arrows.

        • Sarcastic Duck

          they have been adding different default weapons through all the games. Black Flag, Unity and Sindycate don’t have shields probably just because of the settings of the games

  • John Mark

    What is your source for these images?

    • sukkTHEfacc

      gee, you’d think in 2017 more people would wonder about things like sources…

  • Ponds 908

    This could ac not exactly sure but really looks like ac

  • xibx

    Whitewashed Caucasian protagonist. So predictable.

    • Actually, crybaby, Egyptians are typically lighter of skin. A color just like the character in the photo. Some are darker, sure, even being confused with Africans, but Egyptian is it’s own race. He could also be of Jewish or middle eastern considering the location and assumed timeframe. This isn’t white.

      • Nick de Bruyne

        This reminds me of the person who complained on social media of the whitewash when they cast Rami Malek as an Egyptian and someone was like “You dumbass, Malek IS Egyptian” haha.

      • xibx

        Egyptians referred to themselves as “Black” people or ‘kmt’, and km was the etymological root of other words, such as Kam or Ham, which refer to Black people in Hebrew tradition.

        Read ‘Biological Anthropology and the Study of Ancient Egypt’, they were closer to sub-saharan African -Nubians. Tutankhamun was black Afro-Asiatic. Strabo referred to Egyptians as “melanchroes” with woolly hair. Recent DNA studies found that the male haplogroups in a sample of 147 Egyptians are characteristic of some Afro-Asiatic speakers.

        Whitewashing IS racism, not me who point it out.

        • Except that’s afrocentrism bullshit. Ancient Egyptians ranged from dark with curly hair to very light with straight hair. They even depicted such in their various visual arts such as hieroglyphics. They didn’t even have a sense of “black or white”, that was made up by the europeans to separate good from bad. And look at idiots like you still seeing things in black vs white to the point you have to try desperately to paint Ancient Egypt as BLACK, when it couldn’t be fartger from the truth.

    • Feak

      I hope this is sarcasm

      • xibx

        Well, I’m dead serious. Just to let you know.

        • mastagt

          you do know egyptians weren’t black right? they were slaves to the egyptians

          • Naw, this fool is clearly another sad victim of Afrocentrist gobbledygook. The people who cry loudest about white people and cultural approptiation IN A MELTING POT SOCIETY are the ones trying desperately to appropriate other cultures. Egypt is just one.

    • LEnnart kuling

      You haven’t even seen the front of the character
      and yet you assume he is caucasian/whitewashed based on skintone

      Africa is diverse, stop it.

      • Africa has more different kinds of darker people than the rest of the world has different kinds of whiter people. Thus whole Black Vs White mentality is ignorant and racist. Africa isn’t Black like so many american blacks want to believe.

  • Dannybohy

    Unless they are going to bring back the full MP. I aint interested.

    • David Peka

      wasn’t the MP part actually the part everyone started to dislike AC more and more? I always felt as if the MP was an unnecessary point of the game which barely anyone used anyways. AC was always about the singleplayer part for me at least.

      • rmg93

        yeah, the MP in Brotherhood was simple fun, but it just went downhill from there

  • Fear Monkey

    Ac:Black Flag and Syndicate were the last two good AC games, hopefully this is more like syndicate and less like Unity

    • sukkTHEfacc

      syndicate is so great. I just started playing after buying it new for $8…best $8 gaming expense EVER, literally. what a breath fresh air for the series. Black Flag meets Brotherhood. THe Gang system and Arkham City grappling hook made me stick around

      • Fear Monkey

        I agree, Syndicate was a blast, still have the DLC to finish. I almost hated finishing Syndicate I had so much fun with it.

  • sukkTHEfacc

    source or it’s fake
