There's no indication which issue of the magazine it is, but it does showcase a photo of a hero standing valiantly on top of the Great Sphinx of Giza.

The caption read, "An empire falls, a brotherhood rises." This confirms previous reports that the upcoming game will find gamers in Egypt and will feature a hero called Bayek, as per Gamespot. Additional reports indicate that there will be a bird companion, as showcased in the magazine cover featuring an eagle flying above the hero.

There will be three other editions to be released, each featuring different bonus material, depending on the kind of package, as with the usual with most large franchises as this one. Fans should also expect packages with the Season Pass to get future DLCs for free.

Long history of 'Creed' video games

"Assassin's Creed" first debuted in 2007 to PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. Since then, several other games were released under the franchise, spawning a sequel in 2009, "Brotherhood" and "Revelations" in 2010 and 2011 respectively, a third installment in 2012, "Black Flag" in 2013, "Rogue" and "Unity" in 2014, and "Syndicate" in 2015.

The franchise also spawned a 2016 film directed by Justin Kurzel and featuring Michael Fassbender as Cal Lynch, which was lukewarmly received by moviegoers. During next week's highly anticipated E3, Ubisoft is expected to make an official announcement about "Assassin's Creed: Origins."

The Ubisoft press conference during E3 is set for Monday, June 12 at 1 p.m. PT/4 p.m. ET.
