A recent leak claims that the next installment in Assassin’s Creed, Ragnarok, will feature cross-gen and co-op.
It would seem that the heavily rumored Assassin’s Creed Ragnarok is definitely more in the cards now based on recent retail store listings, which was followed by an exhaustively detailed list surfacing online.
According to a thread by Reddit user nstav13, who claims to have connections to the Ubisoft Montreal team, the next Assassin’s Creed will indeed be set in Scandinavia during the Viking Era.
He later adds that it is scheduled to be released in September, with an official reveal set to take place this February during Sony’s rumored Playstation 5 reveal event. This is a far cry from traditional Assassin’s Creed launches, which usually happen in October.
Furthermore, the list suggests that players will once again be able to change the gender for Ragnarok’s main protagonist named Jora, who leads a band of four Vikings during their adventure. The four Vikings will see the return of co-op gameplay to the Assassin’s Creed franchise, which was previously introduced in Unity.
Other important details that can be gleaned from the list is the game’s setting. The list lines up with previous rumors that suggested that the game’s setting would take place in most of Northern Europe which include major cities such as London, Paris, and York.
As players navigate across this expansive open-world, there will be battles taking place in real-time that they can participate in. Stealth has also undergone a massive overhaul with the various RPG elements from Odyssey making a return with a few changes. It will see a cross-generation release when it hits shelves in September.
