Few weeks ago, it was reported that the next Assassin’s Creed would be set in the Viking Era, known by the working title “Kingdom”. Today, new reports from ResetEra and 4Chan claim that the next Assassin’s Creed will indeed focus on the Vikings and will be titled “Ragnarok”, set for release in 2020 as a cross-gen title. Here’s a summary of all the reported information about the game:

  1. The game will bring back RPG elements and naval mechanics.
  2. Ship-related content won’t be as extensive, since the focus will instead shift to exploration.
  3. Co-op features will be implemented into the game which will appear in both side quests and exploration of the open-world.
  4. The unnamed protagonist is closely allied with the famed Ragnar Lothbrok., and also assists in establishing the Great Heathen Army, a league of Norse warriors who were instrumental in the invasion of English kingdoms in 865 AD.
  5. The protagonist will venture into kingdoms set in the regions of Denmark, Finland, Great Britain, Norway, and Sweden.

  11. DLC plans are already underway, as a setting in Iceland has reportedly been selected for post-launch content.
  12. Ragnarok will feature multiple realms, and it’s unclear if this is part of the game or the DLC.
  13. Traversal between realms will be made possible by Yggdrasil, the mythical Tree of Life that is featured in the likes of God of War and other similar focused mediums.
