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: Fable 4 Story, Gameplay Details Leak Ahead of E3

Published

fable 4 leak

Fable 4 will abandon its typical setting of Albion and firearm combat for a brand new, medieval-themed open-world, a possible leak suggests.

A video of the upcoming game has supposedly been viewed by reddit user LagSwag1 who quickly shared the information.

The screenshot below appears to show a brief story synopsis of a new world built upon the ashes of Albion and Fable 3’s Aurora. The two lands have been ‘reduced to fables’ by a mad king, who rebuilt the Spire and wished for an asteroid to strike the planet.

Now in a new era of a medieval-styled world spanning new continents and a Heroes Guild has survived behind a demon door. The leak also appears to describe specific old Fable links such as prophet Theresa and Jack of Blades. However, whether or not these links will be main features of gameplay or if they are alluded to as myths, history, or lore is unclear.

Fable 4 will feature first or third-person camera options, features in-depth character creator, incorporates multiplayer, and also strongly relies on time travel, perhaps as a mode of fast travel.

Though, again, not officially confirmed, the leak suggests the game will also benefit from using the Unreal Engine.

Forza Horizon developer Playground Games has taken over the mantel of producing the next Fable game, so how these leaked details may relate to the game remains to be seen. If the leak is accurate, fans can look forward to an update at Microsoft’s E3 press conference June 9.
