The tweet also comes with a picture of the mask and speculation is rife within the gaming community.
Some have been saying the mask is a reference to the Japanese kitsune (fox), which can shape-shift into any form and possesses supernatural abilities.
Others have been saying on Reddit that the character is Bastet, an ancient Egyptian goddess. A few are even saying it may be a Viking artefact.

But only when Season 5 releases will we know what the real deal is.
