So the new AC game got leaked not too long ago, set in ancient Egypt. Sounds like Ubisoft is getting their shit together saving the release for 2017.
Is this a sign of the franchise getting back on it's feet? Will Assassin's Creed ever live up to the old days like II and Brotherhood?
No it wont, since it'll be the same copy pasted gameplay the other 5000 entries to the series had
The novelty has worn off long ago and the only redeeming factor this game series had was the ship combat in 4 which they didn't even make a spin off with
What a shame
So they give you shit for years and you still give them infinite chances. just kill me.
Meh, I was referring to the story aspect of the franchise. Haven't bought an AC game since 3 because I saw where the franchise was heading. Exception for Black flag I was right.
The reason I got hyped just for this one was because of the one year break.
Getting back to crowd stealth rather than "follow this person from the rooftops because there are guards everywhere". Syndicate's stealth system isn't terrible either.
Nope. The series was always mediocre, and it starts and ends with the combat system.
Unity and Syndicate have the best assassinations in the series but everything has been muddled by awful basic combat design and fetch quests
>“We can’t comment on rumor or speculation. We’re always happy when players are excited about our games, past, present and future. In the meantime, we hope that the latest images from the Assassin’s Creed movie set will keep fans of the franchise happy and eager to find out more!”
So basically, lol no. Go watch the movie and pay up faggots is what they said.
>The next Assassin's Creed will launch in 2017, according to Kotaku, whose sources allege that the next game is set in Egypt, leaving 2016 without a mainline AC release. The decision to delay the game -- codenamed 'Empire' -- was apparently made following the launch of Assassin's Creed Unity.
Hopefully the protagonist is actually Egyptian and not just some white bread Mary Sue with a British accent. AC1 was a hell of a brave game for having Muslim protagonist but it's all been playing it safe since then.
>still no AC: Japan
>another all brown & tan sand country
Yes but it was scrapped I believe and the assets are likely being used for this new game
It was supposedly leaked here on /v/ first, then some neogaf user made a thread about it, then kotaku allegedly confirmed the info from "multiple sources"
The project was codenamed Osiris numbnuts
>going to egypt
>after they throwing religion away for tyranny
nah this will be VERY bad, their ideology is missmatched and i can see whitewashing history from miles away. Unless they throw away all SJW dev, this will never save them.
Black Flag team is behind this one. And their director is a muslim dude.
What would they try to add this time that's not AC-y?
A crocodile hunting simulation along the Nile?
A pyramid designer game?
I honestly can't think of anything interesting Egypt has to offer as a setting
>labyrinths inside pyramids
Bah, I actually hate that shit, it's so fucking overdone
Egypt as a setting would be way more unique than the generic mountains and grasslands we see in open world games all the time. And according to the leak they're supposed to be revamping the series and making it similar to the Witcher games.
The setting at least will probably feel like AC1 where there was an area joining the major towns.
>similar to the Witcher games
That's so fucking vague, I don't even know where to start
>do they add RPG elements
>do they add meaningful dialogue choices
>do they add romantic subplots which actually go somewhere
>do they add space nazi elves
>do they add dumb hunting quests
Did they say literally anything apart from "we're gonna make it like the most popular game of the decade" because if not then this statement is completely worthless
Even if they did actually mean something by it, it's still only marginally possible they'd actually manage to make something worthwhile
You're questions are as good as mine anon. Feel free to browse through this thread though (the Witcher quote is the second post).
Of course it could all be bullshit too
It's probably all bullshit
>it'll be less character focused and more adventure focused
Fuck that shit though, they tried this with the new xenoblade and look where that got them
>four games in a row with gamebreaking bugs, save corruption, shitty new features and lacking older features
Series died ages ago, no one gives a shit that Ubisoft are getting desperate.
would be cool i think but I doubt they'll use the bible as reference material since they have their religious beliefs to protect and all
Also AC has been all about tacticool stealth action so bringing fantasy elements into the mix will just not stand
>Will Assassin's Creed ever live up to the old days like II and Brotherhood?
both were shit
every game in this series is poorly designed, it has nothing to do with the flaws of an individual installment
no assassin's creed game will be good until ubisoft completely revamps their design philiosophy
>it's a European or Mudslime Asscreed game
yeah no thanks, give me something fresh like the wild west or ancient china or hell even modern day
problem with this game is in it rotten core.
Mechanics of the game are so shallow, background noise story(abstergo-templars) should carry this game, yet it is most weakest part(no one gives a shit about some deeper lore, there is none and what there was was long revealed).
There is another layer of rott, fact that AC games are a spin off of Prince of Persia, that alone overstayed the welcome far more than maybe max 3 games,yet they went full retard and made this shit an yearly release?!
This shit happens when huge studio is so fucking far away from the happenings on the ground(whats in,whats out, whats always in, what was always out but it was constantly pushed and forced by big AAA developers.)
I honestly believe they will make same fucking game as all the rest, just a reskin in Egypt, and they will wonder why the fuck did it flop.
These type of games deserve an trylogy max, then 5 to 10 years on ice or lets say, rhythm of releases like from TES Bethesda(every 5 years), then it would work but as yearly game, its totally ludicrous.
Yet, they made huge, dumb studio with 1000 people!?!?(if they went this far, they are really biggest retards in the industry), the bigger the studio, its harder to make any actual change and worst part is, if they dont want to lay off 90% of the people, they have to either make them yearly or sell twice the content every 2 years, yet none of that will happen.
It just shows that a woman is in charge of production of this game, they do everything right(lets turn one eye blind) and they just dont get why the fuck people dont want this new shit, its totally different, totally..it is..
>next game is set in Egypt and the game will get two years development time instead of one
>but it's set in Egypt
YOU HAD ONE FUCKING JOB UBISOFT. JESUS RAPTOR-RIDING CHRIST THEY THINK A GAME SET IN JAPAN WOULD BE TOO FAMILIAR BUT THEN THEY GO AHEAD AND MAKE THE NEXT ONE TAKE PLACE IN EGYPT? YEAH, THAT MAKES COMPLETE FUCKING SENSE. I AM SO BEYOND MAD RIGHT NOW I COULD REACH IN AND PULL OUT MY INTESTINES THROUGH MY ANUS. FUCK YOU UBIKIKES.
The only possible way of I'm remotely considering supporting this next one (And I Didn't with Syndicate either) is if the main character is Arno. Because he sure as hell didn't get any closure in Unity after he basically turned into a drunk depressive and then decided to up and leave France for Egypt.
>games like ASSCREED have enough meat for maybe an trilogy or to have release pattern like Elder Scrolls(one game every 5 years)
>yet, they cant release with that rhythm because their studio is so huge(over 1000 people), they have to release something every year so they keep afloat (for some wierd reason they chose to release asscreed, as anyone even gives a fuck enough, in its prime this game was maybe 6/10)
At least it's better than India?
I still say Russian duing the revolution would be cash as fuck.
Japan sounds like it'd be cool but in theory but I don't know, I think it wouldn't be very fun.
>actually make good design decisions for Unity, first time since the first game
>they fuck up everything else so hard that its unilaterally considered the worst AC game ever
>now they're backpedaling harder than ever and undoing their good ideas, back to rehashing garbage press x to win for babbies
>all I want is an assassination game set in historically accurate time periods
why is this so much to ask for considering this is what the series has been advertising since day one?
just fucking kill me
you meant unanimously.
On topic, I'm curious as to how this will come out. First pre-Industrial AC since Ezio, and AC had yet to firmly establish itself as the rote giant it would become then. Wonder how they'll shore up their usual feature bloat lacking the ability to defer to technological advances in the period.
assassins creed story hasn't been good since 1 breh
it needs to be a whole lot better than 1, 2 and Brotherhood, than every AC in fact, i wish ubi would actually get the mechanics right, if only just this one time
So what games in the franchise do you believe were good?
For me it's 2, Brotherhood, and Black Flag. 1 was pretty cool but felt like a tech demo at times, and I got bored and never finished Revelations. Haven't bought any of the ones after Black Flag.
The combat's the same as always.
I like how they kinda brought back the bit from the first game where investigating everything gives you more things in the mission but I wish they'd actually be important. I'll get the mission, do the side things, and then they don't play a role in killing the target or escaping. It'd be cool if you messed up and the target had a chance to escape or fight like in the first game. "Assassinating" and then fighting Robert de Sable was fucking awesome. Maybe if they try to escape, a group you helped gets in the way or something.
The murder mysteries I've done so far are boring as fuck and easy, so I don't really find them compelling, hopefully the rest are better.
I don't really care for the city that much right now. And movement is pissing me off but this is the first AC game I'm playing with Kb+M. Might just switch to my controller
This database is so fucking annoying. I fucking hate Shawn.
Naval combat in 3 sucked dick. 3 had the better city and story too. Especially with how empty 3 was
Been playing since the first and I think 1, 2, 3, brotherhood, revelations are all good. 3 shit the bed so fucking hard and it was the most important moment for the series, IV was pretty good, unity is dogshit and syndicate is why tier
>AC set in Japan
>YOOOOO every time you complete an objective
>Will Assassin's Creed ever live up to the old days like II and Brotherhood?
I hope so. Also they should get Jesper Kyd back on the soundtrack.
Back when I was convincing my father, or maybe my mother, to buy Assassin's Creed for our dusty old PC, I was trying my best to sell the history angle. I didn't need to lie - it was near Christmas and I wasn't asking for anything else - but I did anyway. I added a few more time periods to the game, shifted the setting towards England, and became genuinely excited relating a level set in a modern day museum. You got to use any of the weapons on display and could finally apply your experience by fighting real bad guys. I don't know why I remember that, but I still think it would be nice to have a level like it eventually: where you find yourself unarmed and hunting an artefact in a templar-filled museum.
I hate video games. I hate that I used to enjoy them so easily. There was so much fun and excitement to be had that I didn't even need to play the fucking things to get myself worked up.
I took a history of architecture class a few years ago. I remember knowing a bunch of the Italian buildings because of 2 and Brotherhood. I thought it was so fucking cool that I'd learned about these from a video game.
>no actual Hashashins
>no assassination planning/investigations
>mustache twirling villains
>irrelevant collectathons instead of content
Ezio's games killed whatever potential AC had.
the hammer and Auditore cloak were more reward than you got for any of the collections in AC1 and the Templars in the first one all killed someone innocent in their cutscenes. And the missions leading up to the actual assassinations were about undermining the big Templars' resources before striking at them. Plus Ezio was an actual character compared to Altair
You're underselling the fuck out of AC2 at the very least.
Is this your source? Fucking redditors who are openly browsing /v/? kill yourself and ask the ones giving the source to kill themselves too.
They believed that Pharaohs turned into gods and protectors of Egypt after their death. The Pharaoh and the country were closely connected, so immortalizing the king meant you were doing your patriotic duty as well. The peasants worked on some big state projects in the same way we work for the state when we pay taxes, while the skilled workers were just regular paid employees.
