Codename “Legion”, the game is rumored to occur in Ancient Rome, set under the rule of Marcus Aurelius and the struggles of his son Commodus.
As this may just be a rumor being that 4chan is the one supplying the information, having Ubisoft just released big games such as Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey, Far Cry: New Dawn, and The Division 2 in a few weeks, it would be interesting to see how in depth this game could really be.’
In Assassin’s Creed: Legion, players would continue the Odyssey feel, by taking on the role of either Cassius or Lucia. These characters are said to be descendants of previous Origin and Odyssey titles.
In Legion as well, players would come to expect RPG elements once again that would be present throughout the game. It is mentioned that the game would rely more heavily on the Assassin Creed style of play from previous games ( prior to Origins ), as well as still keeping some of the playstyles of Odyssey.
Assassin’s Creed: Legion would be the final game in the “Ancient Trilogy”, and would be handled by Ubisoft Sofia.
Even though this specific setting and set of characters may just be speculation at this point, it is the second time that the anonymous tip has led us to Italy ( ie: Assassin’s Creed: Adder ). So, heed this information but be on your toes because it looks were about to get something solid soon.
