In the new Assassin’s Creed game, players will instead utilise their feathered friend, currently known as Akhom, to hunt for points of interest such as side missions and other distractions. However, there’s a limit to how far your companion can fly from the main protagonist. Elsewhere, all characters will speak in English thanks to the Animus 5.0, which has ironed out previous translation wrinkles, and you’ll now sit inside the device and move around much like the Assassin’s Creed movie.
Modern day shenanigans also return with a brand new character fronting these contemporary exploits, with veterans William, Rebecca, and Shaun all showing up in the game. The newcomer is reportedly a male of mixed race and has already been trained in the art of the assassins.
