Report: Assassin’s Creed: Comet stars a templar, features naval combat

Posted on March 27, 2014 AT 01:38pm

Assassin’s Creed naval combat will live on in Assassin’s Creed Comet, according to a report from Kotaku.

Kotaku’s sources, cited as “people familiar with Comet,” and corroborated by a report from French website GameBlog, say that Assassin’s Creed Comet will be set about 1758 along the North Eastern costs of North America and the Atlantic Ocean. In a series twist, the game’s protagonist, a sailor named Shay, will not be a member of the Assassn’s, but rather a the Templar Order. ACIII’s Haytham Kenway and ACIV’s Adewalé are said to make appearances.

Comet’s design is described as a cross between Assassin’s Creed III and Black Flag’s DLC, Freedom Cry.

Kotaku previously reported on both Assassin’s Creed: Comet as well as Unity prior to Ubisoft confirming Unity’s name and setting just a few days later. In their initial report, and maintained in this new one, Kotaku’s sources said that Comet would only be released on Xbox 360 and PS3 and PC—not the newer consoles.

Assassin’s Creed: Comet, like Unity, is rumored to be launching this year.
