Next Assassin's Creed Protagonist Possibly Unveiled

Next Assassin's Creed Protagonist Possibly Unveiled

In what would be one of the most fashionable unveilings, Ubisoft have potentially introduced us to the playable character in the next Assassin's Creed by way of a t-shirt. 

 

The image came from a post on NeoGAF (as reported by Gamesradar). Text at the top-right suggests the character's name is Ba Yek. The inclusion of what appear to be hieroglyphics above the text give credence to the theory the game will be a prequel set in Ancient Egypt.

The character sports a peculiar combination of shield and bow, along with somewhat ragged attire.

A wingspan can clearly be made out in the background, along with the body of what looks like a beetle holding an object of significance.

A Ubisoft employee, Ashraf Ismail, who's directing for an "unannounced project," and previously directed Assassin's Creed: Black Flag, also chimed in with a Tweet:

Rumoured to be called Assassin's Creed: Origins, Ubisoft have yet to officially unveil the game. It's quite possible we'll see an announcment at E3 during Ubisoft's press conference on 13th June.

Exploring the pyramids and dodging all the booby traps would be cool.

Im getting a good vibe on this AC. Lost interest after Brotherhood/Revelations. Only one since Ive wanted to play was AC4 Black Flag but you know... backlog and other new games hasnt allowed me to play it. But I love the setting of this as a big fan of ancient greece and egypt.

Black Flag and Syndicate have been some of the best AC games in the series. You should definitely check them out if you liked the earlier games.

Glad to hear that. I played Black Flag and really enjoyed it. Then played Unity. That was a bit of a disappointment. But you reckon Syndicate is one of the best? Might have to give it a go.
