This Is How Assassin’s Creed 4 Will Look If It Is Set In China

GB - "Have you wondered how Assassin’s Creed 3 will look when set in China? Well a skilled user from Deviant Art has done just that by creating some of the most gorgeous artworks ever known to man, in fact, it’s so awesome that he or she should actually get hired by Ubisoft for the pure awesomeness on display." (Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag, Next-Gen, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

Wut? There's not enough Muricans in Ancient China. So they don't have any flags to wave around the front of the case. To appeal to Americans/

That looks like shit. Assassins Creed in China would be a bad idea.
ZombieNinjaPanda  +   1133d ago
Are you kidding me? Oriental Assassins Creed would be such a breath of fresh air for the series. Looks bad ass too without being cheesy.


The American Revolution was something decent in innovation for the series.

Shut up, at least it's more innovative, unique and inspirational than boring, old, overused America.

So you brits are still mad about Assassin's Creed huh? Europe is boring. It's been done in every fashion possible. America has been done in every fashion possible. It's time to go to Asia.

Woah, the concept art looks amazing. I don't know about anyone else, but I feel that China should definitely be the setting for Assassin's Creed IV it just feels right.

China was probably a very interesting place before the Communists took over.
blackbeld  +   1133d ago
Assasin Creed in China will be awesome.

You get to deal with Ninja's, Shoalin's, Tai Chi and a lot Kung Fu clans.

He should learn some Martial Arts before he get to China otherwise he get killed to easy.

Ummmm there wasn't any "muricans" in assassins creed 1,2 or its two follow ups. Also, assassins creed isn't even developed in "Murcia" so get off your high horse and stop being butthurt they chose one era in history verse another.
killershadow117  +   1133d ago
What the heck man. Just because one game was set in America means that it is a game "Muricans" play to be all about America? Did you forget that the first game was set in the middle east and the second was in Italy.
Root  +   1133d ago
I'm not sticking up for him...but with the first two games it didn't really give off the "AMERICA F*** YEAH" vibe in the games like AC3

The thing is in the war between Americans and the redcoats both sides did some horrible things, both sides were as bad as each other but AC3 dumbs down what the Americans did and exaggerateswhat the redcoats did to make it one sided and that the redcoats were like completely evil.

It's the reason I havent been able to finish the game...well more because the main character sucks and it's boring story but you get the idea.

I think you should finish the game, then you probably wouldn't call it dumbed down. I'm not going to spoil anything for you but it does have some stuff that does put America in a bad light. I do agree with you that this main character and story are definitely not the best of the series.
Root  +   1133d ago
I'm close to the end and I havent seen crap yet that goes against the Americans

It's one redcoat thing after another....oh look a templar....oh he's British AGAIN how did I not see that coming.

Course they dumbed it down...

George Washington was supposed to be bad from the start, he held the apple to win the war which is what past AC games tell us...LOOK IT UP BEFORE YOU DISAGREE...but they changed it in this game incase they risked ticking off Americans. Instead they created Haytham, an amazing character, and his group to fill Georges place and the rest of the founding fathers, they were supposed to be the templar group from the start from what they codex pages told us in the first two games. Haytham should of been a good guy to help you near the end.

Almost every American character in this game is portrayed as an asshole or an idiot. I don't think the French-Canadians at Ubisoft care about trying to appeal to us.

Connor eventually does tell G.W to eff off, and realizes all his work in the end to save his village was futile. It just ends up being sold by a U.S. Senator. So the whole Murica Eff yeah feeling is more or less, is wow they're just as bad as the britsh.
ZombieNinjaPanda  +   1133d ago
He's most likely talking about the advertising and the way the game was presented to everyone.
FuzzyPooka  +   1133d ago
Of course. Connor was FIGHTING the British. Whatever side he is on is going to be portrayed in a better light. Plus, in essence, Patriots= Assassins, British= Templars. My opinion? F*** YEAH 'MURICA!!!

I personally have found out most people with your opinion of ACIII, have either not played the game or didn't finish it at all.
I just started playing ACIII and love it. I'm enjoying the character development. I like that the game has had a slow build up and that I wasn't some big-bad ass-powerful assassin right out of the box.

Also, when people say ACIII has this "America F'Yeah" vibe, I wonder if they thought AC had a "Middle East F'Yeah" vibe, or ACII had an "Italy F'Yeah" vibe...
Root  +   1133d ago
"I wonder if they thought AC had a "Middle East F'Yeah" vibe, or ACII had an "Italy F'Yeah" vibe"

No it didn't...those games didn't shove it in your face, they just got on with the game and the story. Thats what makes AC3 differnt

Well, I personally have not felt an "American F'yeah" vibe shoved in my face. I don't feel that this game has shoved any side down my throat, any more than the previous AC games have. But I guess that's just me.

@Threydor: You are correct. I apologize. As where others have felt that vibe from the very beginning, I have yet to feel it -- and I'm 6 hours in.

JaredH  +   1133d ago
Who cares? Seriously, who? The game isn't the best in the series and was a minor let down to me by being more of the same, even with the drastic change in scenery and setting.

I also didn't get any of the "America's so great" vibe. Do you know how it ends? SPOILER with slavery and other depressing themes like Native Americans losing their land END SPOILER. Yup, "America F*** yeah", indeed.

Furthermore, the game takes place during the American Revolution. Having the first American flag in marketing kind of spells that out for people.

"Have you ever wondered how Assassin's Creed will look when set in China"?
Yes. I've been begging for an Assassin's Creed game set in Asia for many years now. It would be perfect, with the different martial arts, clans, families, government vs rebels, monks, etc etc.

Gorgeous artwork btw. I have no doubt this artist would be able to land a job as a concept artist.
Enate  +   1133d ago
I agree 100% the way the combat system has evolved my oh my. Martial arts in this continuously improved combat system within Assassins creed just seems to sit together like a perfect idea.

It could never be that complex.

Would be too much for the casual/baby fanbase majority.

HorrorGod  +   1133d ago
I don't think you will get any disagrees. A lot of fans have wanted an AC that takes place in China or Japan.
I hope we get one. Even if it's not "Assassin's Creed 4" and just some sequel with a subtitle (like Brotherhood/Revelations.)
Simon_Brezhnev  +   1133d ago
Yeah i really want one based in China. I like China ancient history more than Japan.
UnholyLight  +   1133d ago
I feel like they will make a very bad choice by skipping out an AC set in China/Japan whatever. Honestly would have that over the American Revolution ANY DAY. I HATE AC3, because it is piss poor in comparison to Altair in AC1 and Ezio in AC2.
brodychet  +   1133d ago

BanBrother  +   1132d ago
I was looking at his other pics as well, phenomenal. Although I don't care for WoW, he had done some pretty amazing stuff in that as well.

I think people have been asking for ages for a Ninja/Japan or a Samurai/China (Either is fine, I'd prefer a more dark samurai game as there is no shortage of ninja games).

All in all, I am tired of Assassin's Creed games, as good as they are, but something like this would really freshen it up.

This would be epic :D as a launch title for the next gen consoles too

I hope they eventually get around to doing the Russian revolution with lenin, trotsky and stalin and then getting onto world war 2. That'd be pretty epic. So much material there.

Agreed with Blackdeath

If they start getting into those eras, call it something new perhaps. Even with China I'd rather have it called something else, because then they'd just be riding off the Assassins Creed title to make money.
baldulf  +   1133d ago
Pretty good, a lot more appealing than AC3.

And this way Ubisoft won't have to go around butchering recent history facts.

Gamehard  +   1133d ago
Wow these are really impressive. Ubisoft really needs to listen to fans on this idea. I've been wanting an AC set in feudal Japan or China since the release of part 1 :( These just add more fuel to the fire lol.
J86blum  +   1133d ago
Yeah, No from the screen shots this looks closer to a Jade Empires 2 bit. nothing in any of those said ya know Assassins. not running in the open and crowd fighting. seriously more stealth needs to be injected back into the series.
rpd123  +   1133d ago
Agreed on the stealth part. AC3 was fun and you could be stealthy if you really tried, but it should have had way more stealth elements. Even AC2 shied away from stealth. As the Ezio trilogy progressed the games got less and less stealthy.
J86blum  +   1132d ago
Agree, Everyone knocks three, but I think its getting to the point people knock it cause they see someone else is. ACIII is the best in the series After the original, it shares alot in common from the growing protaganist who both start doing what they are for selfish means but grow from that, not very over talkative. and the stealth. The Ezio series had him as a smooth talking ladies man cause that was his background growing up, they dumb down the stealth to near removing it.

I like all the games in the series, but for stealth game play its a tie between 1 and 3, but the Ezio series did flush the character out (he had three titles afterall.) and then gamers complain Connor was not flushed out as a character.. well yeah so far he has started in one title.

rpd123  +   1133d ago
It could work. It wouldn't be too much of a stretch to say that one of Altair's ancestors was from China if they wanted to go ancient China. Or that one of Altair's descendants went to China and ended up having a kid with a Chinese person if they wanted to go later in the Qing or Ming dynasty.
claud3  +   1133d ago
ok maybe so, or they could just turn it on it's head and start a fresh new family tree from a china perspective and the whole story is chinese driven only
DragonKnight  +   1133d ago
Desmond's story is done. It doesn't have to be about his family anymore. Besides, AC1 had a person from the middle east, AC2 had an italian, and AC3 had a Native American born from an Englishman and a Native. Race is irrelevant.

Assassins Creed 4 will not be out this year. I find it very unlikely. The Wiki states 2013/2014, but I just don't see a game that epic being done right in a year. The Wiki also states that it may take place before Assassins Creed 3. I really don't know I am just guessing on my thoughts. Here is the Wiki though.

I honestly couldn't tell you why, but I just don't care for the series. The games are great I know, this latest entry is fantastic, but I think I just like fantasy and SciFi setting too much. I know since this series is based on history its pretty impossible, but I would play an AC in a heart beat if it were steam punk or cyberpunk!
ExitToExisT  +   1133d ago
I think it's time they give AC a few years off. It was great at first. Now it just feels boring
Npugz7  +   1133d ago
I love this idea I think it would be sweet if they incorparated the japanime feel to it. The combat system with martial arts would be killer and as for desmond they need to drop that whole part and do without it. That's the only part I hate in assasins creed games.

I am sorry, I just can not stand Anime. I don't mind the Japan setting, but PLEASE no Anime. I would have to skip the game...:( Sega's Shenmue 2 style would be great. That game is like 13 years old. I can only imagine how good Assassins Creed 4 set in Japan could look...Here is a link for Shenmue 2 if anyone is interested.

Not exactly many tall buildings in ancient China.

AC3 was rubbish because it lacked tall, renowned buildings IMO, and while its wilderness parkour was great, I missed the sights of AC2.
Before the game heads to China, I want to climb Big Ben and the Eiffel Tower. Paris and London ought to be done first, as Northern Europe is thus far untouched.
DasTier  +   1132d ago
Want to climb Paris? Go play the Saboetuer, came out around the same time as assassins creed 2 and I actually preferred it.
spartanlemur  +   1132d ago
Ok, so lets ignore Paris then for the time being (although I still think it can be done well.)

London: Dark and dreary with gothic themes - wealthy in certain areas contrasted with bleak areas for the poor (Soho, East London - think Sweeney Todd). Plenty of wealthy estates to infiltrate so perhaps having more internal stealth would be a benefit (crouching was sorely needed in AC3). The Surrey countryside would also be quite interesting to explore.

To be honest though, I don't mind where the next AC is set that much as long as we don't have to play as an angry emo like Connor again. Ezio was incredible, and I hope so much that the next character we play as is similarly charming (Haytham was my second favourite character after Ezio - charming and witty but a little too arrogant to top Auditore.)
