There really is no better time to be an Assassin’s Creed fan because let me tell you, oh boy, there are a lot of new games on the way - and now we can add one more to that list, Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood of Venice - Apocalypse.
It’s no surprise really that Ubisoft are relying on the franchise for a steady income. Recent reports claim that the studio were forced to cancel three unannounced games amidst heavy losses in the previous financial year. Next up on the Assassin’s Creed roster is Mirage, which will release later this year, followed by Codename Hexe, Codename Jade, and Codename Red - not necessarily in that order. We know that Jade is set in ancient China while Red will be set in feudal Japan. On top of that, we have another four titles including a sequel to Nexus, a VR title, Project Nebula and one further mystery game. Now though, Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood of Venice - Apocalypse has been announced.
Take a look at the trailer for Assassin’s Creed Mirage below.
Unlike the other titles on the aforementioned list, Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood of Venice - Apocalypse is a game of the tabletop variety. If you’re unaware, Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood of Venice is a cooperative board game created by Triton Noir. The newly-announced Apocalypse expansion will be set in the Khmer Empire during the 1500s, an area now known as modern-day Cambodia.
As reported by ComicBook, the synopsis explains that players will be sent to the Khmer Empire in pursuit of a rogue assassin - plus the expansion will feature new equipment, enemies and environments faithful to the setting. There is currently no exact release date for the expansion, but you can follow its progress on Kickstarter, with the page simply reading “coming soon”. It’s believed that the expansion will seemingly launch in summer.
If you’ve never played Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood of Venice, the game largely features new characters but several familiar faces from Assassin’s Creed 2 do appear. You essentially work together to complete chapters known as ‘memories’ in a campaign.
