Assassin’s Creed 5: Great Fall: Leaked Photos Prove Russia Is The AC 5 Location?

Assassin's Creed 5: Great Fall: Leaked Photos Prove Russia Is The AC 5 Location?

Assassin’s Creed 5: Great Fall is supposedly the name of the next sequel in the franchise. If the leaked photos are to believed, then a likely Assassin’s Creed 5 location might be Russia.

In a related report by The Inquisitr, it was rumored that the AC 5 location could be set in either feudal Japan or ancient Egypt. But then one of the main writers for the series revealed the hints mentioned in AC 4 were all false leads intended to mess with gamers’ heads. Regardless of all the rumors, Ubisoft executives did recently give us hints that an Assassin’s Creed 5 2014 release date will be announced soon.

In my last article on this topic I pointed out how the very name of AC 4 told us what to expect. Black Flag immediately invokes thoughts of pirates and the location would obviously be the Caribbean, where pirating was infamous. But what could Assassin’s Creed 5: Great Fall even mean?

The first thing to come to mind is Adam and Eve. After all, the first game had a hidden movie where gamers were shown a man and a woman trying to make a grab for an apple of Eden. Some wonder if Great Fall references the Fall of Bastille during the French Revolution. There’s also a rumor about a posters box art that shows Connor from AC 3 coming back, but how he would connect to anything resembling a “great fall” seems a mystery to me (and Ubisoft supposedly doesn’t plan on bringing Connor back).

So far, the best theory I’ve seen is that Assassin’s Creed 5: Great Fall references Russia since supposedly has been dropping hints about Assassin activity in Moscow. The name “Great Fall” also closely resembles The Fall, which was a graphic novel series based upon Assassin’s Creed that took place in Russia. Of course, these genetic memories came from the character Daniel Cross, who happens to have died in AC 3, so it’s possible that’s a dead end, as well.

Of course, there is also a debate over whether these leaked Assassin’s Creed 5 photos are even real in the first place. Some say the’re photos of a presentation where some employee sneaked in a camera. The original video posted to Reddit was supposedly quickly deleted, but those who saw it are not sure if it’s a hoax or not. Others say it’s all a fake Photoshop job, claiming the font is off. But, if some people recall, when AC 4: Black Flag was leaked many people doubted it, as well. What do you think it all means, if anything?

    Could refer to the fall of the Czar in Russia during the Great Revolution. Would also mean pushing the time period forward again giving Ubisoft the chance to explore more developed weaponry keeping the game more alive.

    About Daniel Cross, it still possible to use his memory through project surrogate, like ACIV present protagonist do with Desmond Miles.

    I don't think they will use Connor too, but it isn't hard to send him to France and put him in the middle of the French Revolution..

    I could see them doing it during the Cold War Soviet Era… Communism fits very well into the Assassin's philosophy and there is always the age old conspiracy of the Freemasons/Templars in the US government….

  4. Jeremy Landon

    My concern about the possibility of a Cold War story is that it puts the game in a time period very close to our own, with vehicles and heavy artillery. I don't want a game that feels like Call of Duty or Battlefield.

    Sebastian Von Fappywank Oh I know, I was just responding to someone's theory.

  6. Jukka Rasmus

    Yesssss!!!! I have been wanting to explore this time period since AC2 and after reading the comic book. I really hope this is true and not just a fancy joke

  7. Troy Hubert

    i was thinking the same thing, both 3 & 4 have references to assassin's betraying their brethren to the templars. in Ac I vidic and Lucy both state that the assassins are in mass decline

  8. Nick Stark

    Based on the Soviet Imagery, the Title and the Pattern of AC game focusing on revolutionary historical periods I think its safe to assume the game will be set around the October Revolution in 1917

  9. Nick Stark

    If the game is set during the October Revolution it wouldn't be that far ahead technologically than what we have already seen. Yes, Riffles were in use by that time. Yes so were cannons… but then again Russia was also very backwards at that time. There military wasn't on par with France, Britain and Germany. They were a good 40 years behind the western powers.
