Ubi Talks Story Tact, Frontier Parkour & Being Inspired by Skyrim for AC3 - AusGamers

AusGamers recently interviewed Assassin's Creed III mission director, Philippe Bergeron, where he talked about touching on the darker components of the era the game is featured in, the challenges faced with a free-running character in the open wilderness, the potential for the naval combat to become its own game, being inspired by Skyrim and much more.

From the interview:

"From the very beginning of AC as a brand, it’s always been something that’s very dear to our hearts, is we want to treat this with as much respect as humanly possible," Philippe told us in response to a question about the nature of storytelling with respect to the darker past they're dealing with.

"So each and every time we come to a more, like, powder keg topic, we usually get consultants. Consultants is always the way to go, because you have your own perception of how things are, but these people are experts, theoretically, in that field..."

All of the hate on N4G for Skyrim. But developers are thankfully seeing the Elderscrolls as where the future of adventure gaming should be headed. A complex and open world where you feel free to approach the game in a way that feels like you made that decisions on what to do and how to do it.

I enjoyed the Witcher, but I felt like I was being dragged along and lead down a tunnel. It had a great story, but that is what I read books for. I want my games to make me feel like I am running the show. I don't need guidance.

No one blasts TES for its ideas. The concept is something I hope to see more of in gaming.

The reason people hate on it is because Bethesda ignored 1/3 of its consumer base and made them purchase a broken product for the same price as people getting what was advertised.

Thats why people hate Skyrim, because even with all those ideas, Bethesda failed the most basic thing of a game, it working properly

Exactly. What is the point of great ideas in a product if the end product doesn't work properly. Big pappy that is where the hate comes from. Games are meant to work properly
