EDGE: "The next Assassin’s Creed game is being created on a high-end PC and then ported across to consoles, and will incorporate 'more social, more connected' play, Ubisoft Singapore has told us."
I swear I hate their "always on, always connected" slogan. Just be clear and say always online. I didn't enjoy assassins creed 3 one bit and I bet they will have a lot of recycled elements from it, in AC 4.
"I need to play some stealth game" *Bruce Vilanch platforms the shit out of a fully-occupied opera house to 'assassinate' some guy* lol ok.
How is a yearly franchise bridging the gap? The way Assassins Creed 3 looked really sucked me in, but Conner wasn't half the character that Ezio was, and I actually hated his whiner attitude. Ubisoft wants to start doing their games in DRM, I'll have to avoid it completely, just like everything else DRM that I don't touch.
Not to hate or anything, but most of the characters not living up to expectations is mostly because of how overrated Ezio is. All his lines consists of very simplistic comebacks "don't do this" "I did" "please, have mercy" "I have" "so am I" "so have i" "so did I" "neither did I" That's all. one thing that shined was his speech and his 'prophet' scene.
i don't really know what they're talking about when they mention the social aspect of this game. AC is a single player game mainly, i know it has multiplayer but thats just been an add-on to keep people playing after they complete it, its nothing special. They talk about this always connected thing like its something everybody's been crying out for, i don't even like the sound of it.
