First Image for Assassin’s Creed: Empire Potentially Leaked, Hints at Egypt Setting

Published

If a new image making the digital rounds is legit, then it seems the rumors we read about at the start of the year are true: Egypt is the setting of the next Assassin’s Creed, Assassin’s Creed: Empire.

The “leaked” image, which you can find at the bottom of this post, is promising at this early of a stage, and appears to be an off-screen picture of a prototype demo pause screen. What do you know, wouldn’t that be a strange coincidence that there’s a pyramid-looking shape in the prototype demo screen of a game set in Egypt? Not-so-inconspicuously tucked into the upper-right-hand corner of the screen are the words we’ve all been waiting for since earlier this year: Assassin’s Creed: Empire.

Why have we been waiting to see this title? Because we previously reported on exactly that name from what we thought was just a rumor post on Kotaku by an author with credible sources, which we found after doing research following a NeoGAF post by an insider who claimed the next game’s setting would be Egypt and take AC in a new Witcher-like direction. We had already known that there would (probably) be no main AC game this year, but we recently found out that it might not be ready for release until 2018.

If the Kotaku rumor post is true, then the name “Empire” is only a codename for now, unless this off-screen picture means that Empire is now the official title name. We’ll just have to wait and see.

What do you think of the new image? Let us know in the comments below.

RUMOR: Xbox One S All Digital Images, Release Details Leak Ahead of Official Unveiling

Images of a discless Xbox One S have leaked online, confirming rumors from last year.

Winfuture.de revealed the pictures it acquired yesterday, as well the name Xbox One S All Digital, prices, and a launch date. Check out the pictures down below.

The console would allow users who are less oriented in the physical media space to take advantage of an all-digital device.

Some of the speculation regarding all-digital hardware pictures a cheaper, maybe even smaller model. However, yesterday’s leak suggests that, while the Xbox One S All Digital may come bundled with games, the price will stick at around USD$250 with no real change in physical appearance.

The only visual difference between the Xbox One S and the Xbox One S All Digital is the lack of a disc drive. Otherwise, the two slimmed down pieces of hardware are visually identical.

As well as a look at the console, the website says that an official reveal will come April 16 with a release following on May 7.

The pictures uncovered do not come from an official source, so holding off believing everything here is for the best. That said, a device such as this makes sense for Microsoft considering the Xbox Game Pass and the inevitability of a more digitally-inclined market.
