Can the New Assassin’s Creed Save the Series?

As of right now, we know next to nothing about the new Assassin’s Creed. Even the featured image of this article above is just fanart made based on speculation from leaks over the past year or so. Recently, there have been some leaked images that actually add something concrete to the speculation. One is of the Assassin’s logo with an Eye of Horus in the middle and another is a shirt with what appears to be the main protagonist on the front.

Anything else we heard about it was either fake leaks, like the fake E3 trailer leak from earlier this week, or unsubstantiated claims about the direction of the next game. Some of those claims ended up being mostly true, like the Eye of Horus basically confirming the setting to be Egypt as speculated. However, that doesn’t mean any of the other claims about the series are true which just means we’ll have to wait and see.

From all the speculation that has occurred regarding this new game, it’s pretty clear that there’s an interest in this new entry into the Assassin’s Creed series, at least where video game journalists are concerned. The public and critics are a different story entirely. 2014’s Assassin’s Creed Unity was very poorly reviewed, being filled to the brim with bugs upon release and not keeping the interest of gamers for very long. It’s counterpart, Assassin’s Creed Rogue did slightly better but is only available on last-gen consoles hurt its sales tremendously. The 2015 entry, Assassin’s Creed Syndicate, was well-reviewed but the damage had been done by Unity and sales were less than expected for Ubisoft. They decided to take a year break and here we are now awaiting the next Assassin’s Creed game.

Will the new entry be enough to keep the series afloat after some misfires in the gaming series and a critically panned movie? We don’t know much right now, but I think it definitely has the potential to do so.

The very fact that they took some time off heavily implies they’re making the next entry with much more care, which is a great sign by itself. Aside from that, the Egyptian setting (*not confirmed 100% but the Eye of Horus says a lot*) should help too. There have been African settings in Assassin’s Creed before, however they were very brief and none of them were in Egypt, a culturally and historically unique country in that continent. Considering the age and previously mentioned history of Egypt, there are countless points in time the series could pick as well, including settings before the original game as speculated by leaks sometime last year.

With all of that in mind, hopefully, the next entry is where Assassin’s Creed regains the old credibility it once had with gamers.

I spend most of my days working towards my Writing and Rhetoric degree at the University of Central Florida, but I spend a lot of my down time keeping up to date on the best TV, movies, and video games the industry has to offer. Here I put all of that extended time to use discussing each of them in-depth.

Helldivers 2 has seen a rapid rise in popularity, presenting both opportunities and challenges for Arrowhead Game Studio. Although one could argue that the studio has produced a modern masterpiece, Helldivers 2 is still prone to persistent connection issues. Players who have shown great patience with the ongoing server issues in the game are now starting to clash, focusing on personal gain instead of uniting for the success of Super Earth.

IGN reported that players are pleading with Arrowhead to include an AFK auto-kick feature on the Helldivers subreddit. This request comes after some players confessed to remaining logged in to continue playing and bypass the unpredictable server connection process. This issue requires an urgent resolution.

The leader of Arrowhead, Johan Pilestedt, was informed about the problem and assured that the developers were investigating the situation. “I have already communicated this to the team,” Pilestedt confirmed. Regarding Helldivers updates, Xbox players are now petitioning Arrowhead to release the game on their platform after comments from Xbox boss Phil Spencer about the game’s exclusivity.

Respawn’s Star Wars Jedi series has garnered significant acclaim from players, with Cal Kestis’ gripping journey of survival serving as a focal point. Actor Cameron Monaghan, renowned for his portrayal of Kestis in Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order and Survivor, has expressed his openness to bringing the character to life in a live-action adaptation. However, Monaghan emphasizes that certain conditions must be met for him to consider reprising the role.

During a panel at FanExpo Vancouver 2024, Monaghan, known for his roles in Shameless and Gotham, provided insight into his perspective. While many actors would eagerly seize any opportunity to join the Star Wars universe, Monaghan’s willingness to portray Kestis in live-action hinges on the narrative significance and continuation of the character’s story. Merely appearing as a superficial presence would not align with his vision; there must be substantial meaning and relevance for Kestis within the context of the story.

As anticipation builds for a potential third installment in the Star Wars Jedi series, Respawn Entertainment’s reported development of a first-person Mandalorian game raises intriguing possibilities. Could Kestis find himself embarking on new adventures within this immersive gaming experience?

Fans are speculating and curious about the possibility of a live-action Star Wars movie starring Dominic Monaghan. Would such a project capture your interest? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
