Assassin’s Creed, a games series where you get to murder various Illuminati, Knight Templar, or Raccoon Lodge members during history’s most notable ages and civilizations. You also get to dive off tall buildings into conveniently placed piles of hay.
So everyone is wondering which ancient civilization are you going to be able to travel to and stab people in the face next? Turns out, it may very well be the Viking Age.
Gamers toiling around in Ubisoft’s online multiplayer loot shooter The Division 2, spotted the poster above in one of the game’s locations. Its a viking, apparently, holding something called the Apple of Eden, which has something to do with Assassin’s Creed, or some shit.
Look, the last time I played an Assassin’s Creed, it was one of Microsoft’s Xbox Live freebies, and I was a playing as a pirate. It was cool for about 5 minutes before I lost interest.
Turns out that two other sources verified to Kotaku that the next title in the Assassin Creed series is indeed during the Viking Age.
So there you have it. Boats, battle axes, Valkyries, berserkers, and stuff.
