There have been a crazy amount of leaks surrounding Assassin’s Creed: Ragnarok, which is rumored to be the next entry in the long-running series. First kicked off with an easter egg in The Division 2, it’s hard to think of another game that so desperately needed confirmation. While there’s still no official word on whether or not the game even exists, a new leak supposedly provides a wealth of information about the upcoming title.

According to a post on Reddit that reportedly comes from someone who has connections with the developers, Assassin’s Creed: Ragnarok, codenamed Kingdom, is indeed the next title in the franchise and will put players into the boots of either a male or female protagonist. Like its predecessor, Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey, the player will be able to choose the gender of their character.

Regardless of choice, the character’s name will be Jora, and they will lead a band of Vikings that can be controlled by other players in online 4-player drop-in cooperative play. The game will take place in Northern Europe and feature cities such as York, London, Paris, and Kiev in what’s being called a “massive” map. The different locations are meant to be totally unique.

There will be a class system with different abilities, and players can also upgrade and gain new abilities for different weapon groups. Runes will play a part in the combat, adding certain benefits when equipped. Parkour now involves climbing trees and features new animations. New stealth options include hiding in mud and snow, and blending in with crowds is possible only when wearing similar attire.

There’s much more detail in the Reddit post, including potential story spoilers that we won’t post (or read, for that matter). While leaks are often fake, this one feels real, if only because it’s a long way to go for a hoax. Games journalist Jason Schreier, whose reports have been reliable in the past, commented on the leak saying that some fall in line with what he’s heard while others he doesn’t know about. He also believes the leak to be real.

The game is said to be headed for Playstation 4, Playstation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series S on September 29th, and will be officially announced at the Playstation event coming up in February. Hopefully, that last part is true, because that means we don’t have to wait long before we can start getting hyped over the real thing.
