GE: "Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag looks like it’ll be the next entry in Ubisoft’s semi-long-running series. Details are mostly being kept secret for now, but a proper announcement is due early next week."
The only thing I want is one year no Assassins Creed, no Fifa, no Call of Duty.
Lol, that's like asking for a Final Fantasy 7 remake. Not going to happen.
I really want AC to take a break.... I mean I loved 2... liked brotherhood, got bored with revelations and I am torn on 3. They need time to re-evaluate and make better games.... they say this is from a new team... but how can they fix the flaws of AC3 in such a short time? I'm not as hyped as I was for 3 Really hope its a next gen game though, if so I might go for it
So it is embargoed until Monday. I am looking forward to it. I do expect a leak over the weekend.
Apparantely the press meeting was today... yeah Im guessing something will leak Considering the same pattern thats happening now happened with 3 Some store leaked the poster to Kotaku, press were invited, some details get leaked, confirmation happens later
I keep wishing that it won't be numbered but I know that this is all true How Assassin Creed has fallen.... A numbered game is supposed to show the leap between each game, not just doing it for more sales.
I really hope its a next gen game... but yeah the reason I was excited for 3 was because it looked like it would be a leap Who knows... maybe 4 might be to 3 like 2 was to 1 But one thing is for sure... they need to give the series a rest.
I think 3 was a leap but it was poorly done in terms of story. It's like they were focusing on giving us that leap but they forgot about everything else. The setting/time period was poorly done, the main character was boring and dull and it was a chore to play through. Now they want to give us another game with one of Demons ancestors despite <S P O I L E R S> being dead. Yeah thats a good idea say his story is finished then go back to him in AC4, you might not see him but the animus is a main part of the series.
im really curious how this game will work...it doesnt seem like there will be much to climb or jump around on...Trees maybe?
You will walk on water, and scale enormous waves. I'd buy that game... I think?
Jesus confirmed as playable...you heard it here first
Oversaturation is what come to my mind when i read Assassins Creed
I wonder if Blackbeard will be in the game. It is around the time period. I am trying to find a historic event in the time period. It looks more like when the empires decided to take piracy seriously.
Sooo... It's Pirates of the Caribbean? Lol, that's the first thing that popped into my mind. I honestly don't want any more AC games for a while... It's getting way over saturated now. (This coming from someone who has bought all of them and even got the logo tattooed on his wrist.) Let it rest for a while dang it, I don't want to hate the series, but forcing it on us just about every year... It's kind of hard to feel excited for new entries at that point.
I agree with you but I love the series so much I enjoy playing them. I don't have a tattoo of it but you have given me the idea :) There are very few games that deal with the whole lifespan of a character and that is why I love the series.
Commando's Greed Stealth element is gone from the series
I gotta say, looking at the world map images, I'm sort of psyched for 1715 Cuba. It's no 19th century S. America but it's close enough. It could make for a pretty beautiful game world, and I suppose if they've had a separate "all new team" working on it (for who knows how long?), it could be interesting, especially since they've had time to respond to complaints about III. I don't know, I'm not too buzzed about it being a numbered title and not a second Connor game, but it could well be very good. Also I hope they don't go mental with the Naval battles. I mean they were fun, but not THAT fun. Unless they've given them more depth, they're still mini-games at best. Maybe you'll actually use your boat to get around the world map though, that could be cool. ALSO I hope Edward Kenway is nothing like that cheesy, incongruous toff Haytham. Too many stoopid people think he's cooler than Connor and I'm worried Ubisoft will run with that.
It is an interesting period in the golden age of piracy. The empires are just getting a handle on the pirate problem in the Caribbean. It is around the time Blackbeard was roaming the seas but I don't think he went that for south. I love Haytham character but he was raised in England by templars so Edward might be a bit more gruff.
hopefully it wont suffer from brand fatigue. Not too long ago, assassin's creed 3 was released
Not interested. I didn't even finish 3. I'm so burnt out on AC games.
Love AC but seriously burned out on it. I understand yearly series really keeps games popular and grows into a bigger franchise but its too much. Loved 2 , 3 rocked, even enjoyed the Vita title but I want either a break or just handheld spin offs for 2 years while they cook up something mind blowing. 3 could've been that game if they held it back one year to polish it up for new consoles. Still do love the series but it will wind up dying off like POP did after Watch Dogs releases.
Another one already?
