The game will go back to its roots and will focus more on stealth and action adventure, and will focus less open world RPG compared to AC Valhalla. The leaked description of the game is:
“Experience the story of Basim, a cunning street thief seeking answers and justice as he navigates the bustling streets of ninth-century Baghdad. Through a mysterious, ancient organization known as the Hidden Ones, he will become a deadly Master Assassin and change his fate in ways he never could have imagined.”
“Experience a modern take on the iconic features and gameplay that have defined a franchise for 15 years.
Parkour seamlessly through the city and stealthily take down targets with more visceral assassinations than ever before.
Explore an incredibly dense and vibrant city whose inhabitants react to your every move, and uncover the secrets of four unique districts as you venture through the Golden Age of Baghdad”
