Rumored Assassin’s Creed Ragnarok Game Details Revealed
Following the Epic success and thorough output of DLC for the Ancient Greece-set Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, the inevitable next game in the AC series has been the subject of immense speculation, especially when it comes to a potential setting the new adventure could take place. One of the most prevalent rumors has placed the anticipated follow-up in the age of Vikings, the Ubisoft project bearing the name of Assassin’s Creed Ragnarok.
By way of DailyGamingReport, a recent report has revealed new potential details about the rumored Ragnarok project, the outlet’s sources suggesting the finished game is gearing up for release on next-generation consoles. Previously bearing the codename “Kingdom,” it’s said that this new Assassin’s Creed will continue the series’ adoption of RPG features as well as introduce recruitable NPCs and feature a widespead representation of Old Norse lore. Interestingly, the latter is suggested to include strong elements of “First Civilization” mythology, with players reportedly able to visit the godly realm of Asgard during the game’s events.
As one might suspect, all this information should be taken with as many grains of salt as possible, as none of it (including the title ‘Assassin’s Creed Ragnarok’) has yet to be confirmed by Ubisoft. That said, these details paint quite an interesting picture of what the next AC entry might be like, and it’s not as though such Viking-centric leaks aren’t completely without warrant. The return of recruitable NPCs could certainly be refreshing, especially as it was a standout focus for acclaimed past entries like AC Syndicate and Brotherhood.
