A game that sells well and wins awards for setting new bars is always copied.
In the late 90s, Half Life with its long boring train introduction led to the linear, cinematic campaigns in every game since then, including Call of Duty. And now the next AssCreed will have “a Witcher feel” since The Witcher 3 apparently set a bar with its boring, more grounded in reality storytelling.
Can't wait to see Ubisoft shoehorning drama, sad characters and Souls combat into its next games because thats whats popular.
>A game that sells well and wins awards
But that means that AC will be a playable game once again, what's the problem? AC's strongest point was open-world climbing and killing system based on climbing but that was new 6 games before.
Shoehorning the "asassin outfit" to all games since the original feels extremely jarring to me. It felt kinda appropriate in the original while in the sequels it stands out like sore thumb. Often times it's not just silly but trying to mix in setting-appropriate features makes it look ugly to boot.
Well they did copy Red Dead Redemption with 3.
But why Witcher? Or do you just mean the having choices during dialogue part?
3 was shit even though it copied RDR.
2 and Brotherhood were good without copying anything. So no.
And I think they are just talking about having dialog options that influence the story so nothing the Witcher invented really.
We had that in may other games before.
And if they are talking about Witcher quality writing, yeah Ubisoft will never be able to do that.
Theres no chance for other studios to work on these locations because ubisoft are taking them all by spewing out fucking titles, nobody wants to release a game within a year of one with the same location.
Being alive at the time seems like a pretty good source, right? The fact is, Half-Life started the cinematic game trend. It told it's story through gameplay instead of cutscenes, but that still amounted to you standing in a room listening to people talk for a good chunk of the game.
Look at this kid. He hates fun.
>you standing in a room listening to people talk for a good chunk of the game
Sounds like you're taking a meme about Half Life 2 and trying to apply it to Half Life 1 for some reason
The fact that these people are using info that LITERALLY originated from 4chan makes me think there is truth to it. for example, when far cry primal had that flash video slowly zooming out for 24 hours before announcing it, some game journalist tweeted about how he heard they were making an ice age far cry, so they get info ahead of time. I think some journalist knew about this game but couldn't write about it, but now they can because 'hey it was on 4chan i didn't leak it.' Fuck i just woke up dont know if i'm making sense
>looks to be set in ancient Egypt with allusions to Ra the sun god
>set over 10,000 years prior to the creation of the real life organization on which the lore is based
Have they given up on the semi historically accurate part?
>Play Assassins Creed 4
>Sequence 1 is pretty nice
>Edward Kenway seems like an interessting protag
>like where they went with abstergo
>512 treasure chests
>exit game and never restart it again
Fuck you Ubisoft
Also impossible for the era
>while in the sequels it stands out like sore thumb
The clothes Ezio had did not stand out, I would say that not dressing like that would stand out.
No it didn't you literal underage retard.
MGS was vastly more cinematic than half-shit. The real game/s that started us down this awful path was the first uncharted and halo 1. Not to mention the plethora of FMV games in the early 90's.
Half life is garbage, and always has been. People copy good games not shit ones
ASSASSINS CREED 3 was shit you monkey.
Witcher 3 was the best game of 2015 imo.
Except that's wrong. They both show up around the 12th century AD. I mean sure maybe the game lore says garden of Eden bullshit but the point of the original game was reliving history in the context of the assassins that were an actual medieval islamic sect. Essentially ancient Isis.
Freedom Cry and Liberation.
He will be a mudslime. The French love mudslimes and getting killed by them.
Why? Because they list the treasure? Most of it if just coins and useless items. Good collectables are hidden and hard to find. Give it a second chance. Literally best game in the series for being least like the series.
Right. And the assassins were just a militant group fighting over which version of the sect was correct. They didn't start fucking with the crusaders until it became assistant that they were a threat. It was mostly assassinations of high target leaders in the Muslim world of whether they didn't approve of. Interesting stuff really.
>TFW this isn't an Armored Core thread.
>the pic which looks semi legit shows just a black guy.
That was from Project Osiris which was being developed before they made AC. It was the intermediate between PoP and AC.
Read the dev thread people
You're an idiot. Nobody forces you to collect that shit.
Btw AC4 was actually pretty similar to Witcher 3 - comfy casual game with nice graphics, decent story and characters and a piss easy combat.
Be that as it may, it has come to this, and i have come to this as well.
Witcher 3 worked wondrously and marvellously.
However, taking components and slapping it onto a game franchise won't save it from being demolished by proper games.
>being a witcher clone with souls combat
Hah. IT takes more than "sandbox-like", "grounded in reality" bullshit to be witcheresque.
The witcher works because of it's strong roots, it's book backing, it's writer also stole a lot of things - plagiarized - from others, and made it work. There's an overarching "secret" in this. Dedication and love.
Ubisoft only has love for money, and dedication for more shitty DLC and uPlay forcing. So, as good as it is, and as good it may prove to these games, it still won't be as good as the Witcher 3, or those who actually closely follow its trail.
"grounded in reality" my ass anyway, White frost, magic, etc... i fail to see the Groundedness.
How are the AC sales on PC?
Horrible I would accume? The games always leak early and always have some technical difficulties.
But even on console people must be getting sick of this shit after a yearly release and sometimes even 2 releases per year
With "Witcher-feel" the dev meant that this AC focuses a lot on the sense of adventure and discovery as well as player progression.
No, you will not have a fucking RPG with a the ability to choose shit.
I don't know why this is a problem. Oh of course, I'm on /v/.
Who said it's a problem that the story will be linear?
The problem is they release the same shit year after year and half the games had some major technical problems/shortcomings.
>set in ancient egypt
Then how the FUCK are they gonna implement the GOD TIER boat gameplay? Shit better be close to the coast or the nile or I'm not buying
Unless you get to control your own desert caravan or lead a band of Hashashin
Everybody is asking for this since 3.
Make a pirate game with the same naval combat but also sea monsters and mystery shit like in Pirates of the Crebean.
But Ubi won't do it they will just beat their cashcow until it turns into a dead horse.
>Hope that Ubisoft makes a new Pirate IP instead of bringing that stuff to Ass Creed.
I want this so much. Please Ubisoft. I promise I'll even install Uplay for it. Just give me Age of Pirates 2 with the Black Flag engine. Please.
Quick reminder that this game will not be set in ancient Egypt but in 19th or 20th century Egypt so they can make the villains Europeans as "having non White villains in assassins creed is something we try to avoid in our multicultural team that make the AC series" heck they made the fucking Slaving, coloninsing, genocide commiting Ottomans as the good guys.
The French love sucking muslim dick no matter what
You silly fuckers, I was in that thread it was a regular faggot trying to get attention on an anonymous image board, he started using a trip code and then proceeded to tell people he's a dev, later he said he was an illustrator and of course in true attention seeking faggot fashion he neglected every post that called him out on being a bullshitter. It was only the 14 year olds who believed his bullshit.
Anon, play the fucking games. Medieval templars and assassins deal was a botch of both of them trying to go public. It didn't work. I know real life assassins and islam and shit. But in the games, their conflict originated with Cain and Abel.
Yes the writing was really bad
>Half Life with its long boring train introduction
Holy fuck kill yourself
casuals love bethesda's shallow, empty sandboxes too much. every developer crawled up Todd's ass and now everything has to be sandbox. Even when opting to be a sandbox instead of a narrower gameworld that the developers can put more care into making. It's a publisher demand now that the dev has to supply a vast, empty, barren wasteland like the gameworld of every TES game.
Look, I know AC isn't good history and includes lots of Science Fantasy shit in the lore, but I don't want to lose pretty much the only historical action/exploration series there is. There's a million fantasy series, let me have my one subpar historical action series.
Oh boy, another historical strategy game.
Why are devs so afraid to do history games outside of that genre? Shit imaginations? I love several historical strategy titles, but it's all rather limited still.
Because history is brutal and the winner are not the good guys most of the time.
We live a p.c. full of pussies where showing that isn't allowed and everything must be changed to meet todays standards.
>The ottmans were actually good you guys now suck that big muslim cock
Whats wrong with Souls combat? it works with tight level design, sure Bayonetta etc have deeper combat but they are free to have a hundred moves given every battle is in more or less an arena.
