At least the accents will be accurate then.

Assassins creed set in the states would be just full of obese men named buck or hank hunted by angry gangs led by gangstas named tyrese shanaynay... based on your accurate logic of how people in London talk?

Ron_Danger1026d ago

@paprika

They should call it Assassins Creed 3.

PeaSFor1026d ago

kinda look like a volountary leak to make peoples forget/stop focus on Unity...

DragonKnight1025d ago

I really just want them to pick some kind of unexpected, new location. AC's been the following.

AC 1: Israel (Arguably Asia, Arguably Europe)
AC 2: Italy (Europe)
AC2 B: Italy [Rome] (Europe)
AC2 R: Constantinople (Asia/Europe)
AC3: United States of America (may as well be Europe considering the time frame but... North America)
AC4: Caribbean (Sandwiched between North, Central, and South America but, again, European colonialism)
AC Rogue: Same as AC4 pretty much
AC Unity: France (Europe)

And now this is supposed to be in London which, to be frank, will not have many major differences between AC Unity and this latest game.

Ubisoft is mired in European history for the most part. They even said that locations such as Japan or Egypt, locations that actually WOULD be different than the rinse and repeat European locales they're stuck in, are unlikely to be featured because (in their words) they are considered "boring and unoriginal for Assassin's Creed." Right, but the same typical European architectural designs, the recycled English accents pretending to be other ethnicities, and a history almost everyone learns about thanks to Imperialist revisionist history is totally fresh and original right?

Geez, pick something random like making a game DURING the events surrounding the First Civ, or a location like China, Tibet, Malaysia, or anything that isn't an obviously lazy choice of a locale so you can stick with the same NPC voice actors you've had since AC1.

Hell, AC Unity has that one harsh, old sounding English woman from AC1. Sounds kinda like Josie Lawrence from Whose Line Is It anyway.

https://www.youtube.com/wat...

I wouldn't be surprised at all that Ubisoft chooses locations based on how many assets they can reuse from previous AC games, even voice acting "talent."

TheFanboySlayer1025d ago

Yea I'm not gonna play another assassins creed game until they decide to go to Japan.....which I think would be awesome...would be a day 1 purchase for me I think.

Ezz20131025d ago (Edited 1025d ago )

I don't know why Bother,Ubisoft
Just announce Assassin's Creed6,7,8 coming next year
while FarCry5,6,7 coming later next year too

that give you years in advance trying to make something new for once ...and working

They could have done a lot better.
I would have preferred something more bold, like the REVOLUTION OF THE BOXER in China. That would have been better.

@DragonKnight

Why be so defensive. He's allowed to have that opinion. Ubisoft just released one of the most broken games this year, and that's really saying something. The series is descending to the bargain bin faster and faster with each iteration. You can't blame people for getting sick of series that has had TWO installments this year and has been at least annual since 2009.

DragonKnight1025d ago

@Concertoine: Did it now? Funny, I have AC Unity. AC Unity has had the following bugs for me.

1. Fell through the world twice.
2. The Intendent of the Cafe periodically moves like The Flash.
3. The floor has this odd flashing effect in a specific hallway of the Cafe where it looks like a blinking light.

Other than that and a few instances of pop in for the NPCs.

Oh no, that's like soooooo broken isn't it?

"The series is descending to the bargain bin faster and faster with each iteration."

Says you. How much weight do you think your opinion has?

"You can't blame people for getting sick of series that has had TWO installments this year and has been at least annual since 2009."

Actually I can. Who said they had to play them? Am I making you, or anyone else, play the games? No? Ok so then if you're upset then it's because you bought the game and had problems. But guess who's problem that is though?

Concertoine1025d ago (Edited 1025d ago )

@DragonKnight

Yeah, nevermind the low resolution, the awful framerate, the many graphical glitches, etc. You might've gotten a lucky first playthrough, or you might just be selective with your memory for all I know, but you can't deny the game was a mess. It was downgraded, the performance is poor, and even the patches are lowering the visuals further. At a certain point we should stop defending half ass products. As generous as Ubisoft was with the reparation, they still shouldn't be defended or releasing a buggy game.

I didn't even comment on the quality of the games with that statement, i'm just saying their value is in the bargain bin, that's a fact. By the time the next installment comes around, the previous one is already sitting below 30 bucks, 20 in the case of III and Brotherhood and probably Unity and Rogue.

I mean if you're okay with annual installments, good for you. But people who are disappointed with the quality of the games after they started this format, they have a right to complain whether you like it or not. Just like you have a right to defend Unity.

I'm on my second playthrough and the game remains consistent. I don't have VERY FEW framerate drops, and then only in some cutscenes, so I can and do deny the game was a mess. My copy of AC Unity doesn't run 100% flawlessly, but it does run 98% flawlessly and that's a fact. I'm defending my experience, and the fact that saying the franchise is stagnant is complete B.S. What you're really saying is "I didn't like it, therefore everyone hates it and the franchise needs to die." That's what it boils down to.

"I didn't even comment on the quality of the games with that statement, i'm just saying their value is in the bargain bin, that's a fact. By the time the next installment comes around, the previous one is already sitting below 30 bucks, 20 in the case of III and Brotherhood and probably Unity and Rogue."

There value is in the bargain bin because older games are cheaper than newer ones? Wow, great logic. The reason price goes down depends on MANY factors, your perception of value isn't one of them. A new game will always render the price of its numerical predecessor to be cheaper, that's market reality. But the value in the quality and experience of playing the game doesn't immediately tank because a new one came out. If that was the case, no one would ever play retro games because they'd be without value.

"I mean if you're okay with annual installments, good for you. But people who are disappointed with the quality of the games after they started this format, they have a right to complain whether you like it or not. Just like you have a right to defend Unity."

Saying things like the franchise needs to stop, saying it's stagnant, sarcastically calling for its end is not complaining out of disappointment because of a game having some perceived drop in quality. That's entitlement and childish whining and completely unnecessary. I mean, you don't like the game. So the franchise ends with you not buying the next game. Does that mean you have the right to call out the franchise in a b**** fest demanding its end or an extended development period because YOU don't like the game. Who gave your that right exactly?

Right. No one.

Concertoine1025d ago (Edited 1025d ago )

@DragonKnight

I'm sorry, what? I'm not saying there aren't factors, the fact that assassin's creed games are popping out so fast is EXACTLY why the value of the games lessen over time. But the general consensus on the quality of the games is a factor too. Call of Duty and Halo have a lot of sequels, and yet they retain their value for YEARS. This isn't because of any number of excuses, its because consumers see less value in the AC series.

"Saying things like the franchise needs to stop, saying it's stagnant, sarcastically calling for its end is not complaining out of disappointment because of a game having some perceived drop in quality. That's entitlement and childish whining and completely unnecessary."

Wow, its clear you are totally intolerant of any opposing view on this. You're even putting words in my mouth. I never thought there was such a thing as an AC fanboy, but i guess i found one LOL.

The right to demand quality, the right to criticize, the right to speak my mind? The very fact that I can type, and you can type, dictates that right.

FriedGoat1025d ago (Edited 1025d ago )

I see where you are coming from, but I don't think anyone agrees with you DragonKnight.

I've disliked most Ubi products for quite some time now, they always feel much lower quality than from other publishers. FC3 being an exception.

r2oB1025d ago

@ dragonknight

He has a right to bash the game just as you have the right to defend it. It's called having different viewpoints.

Also, did you just ask who gave him the right to express his viewpoint? What kind of world do you live in where people have to be given the right to express their viewpoints in a non aggressive manner?

UnHoly_One1025d ago

I'm with DragonKnight.

I don't understand the hate for AC Unity.

I've had only a few tiny issues like he said. Nothing "broken" about it at all.

My only issue with the game is the story kind of goes nowhere compared to previous games in the series. Still a good game though.

DragonKnight1025d ago (Edited 1025d ago )

@Concertoine: I have to reply to someone else, so I'm going to try to be brief because clearly you're mired in this belief that you speak a consensus and only fact.

Paragraph 1: Call of Duty has value only in the latest releases just as you'd accuse AC of having. When's the last time you heard of someone extolling the value of Modern Warfare 2? Right, moving on.

Paragraph 2: You're reading into things. I didn't put words in your mouth, I wrote typical comments. You were the one that went that extra step and equated what I wrote to what you were saying. Don't act like you're not a fanboy. There's definitely a game or franchise you like that others hate.

"The right to demand quality, the right to criticize, the right to speak my mind? The very fact that I can type, and you can type, dictates that right."

Right, because speaking for people other than yourself, saying a franchise has little or no value, is the same thing as wanting quality. And no, the fact that you can type is not a carte blanche right. That's like saying the fact that I can shoot a gun allows for me to have the right to kill people.

@FriedGoat: I'm not concerned with the agrees or disagrees. If I wanted people to agree with me, my initial comment would be very different. The biggest reason most of these people are jumping on the hate bandwagon is because the game's are released every year. Having problems with the quality is low on their list of reasons and you can tell by reading how many times it's brought up that it's an annual release. I can appreciate people having problems with bugs and glitches or getting bored of the series, but just stop buying the games then. Demanding the franchise end is not a legitimate complaint, it's just entitlement.

@r2oB: Umm, no I didn't ask him who gave him the right to express his viewpoint. Try reading what I said again and actually pay attention to what is written and not your interpretation of what was written.

@UnHoly_One: That's something I can agree with. The story in AC Unity is very bland. It's like a lazily put together mix of Altair's Redemption Quest and Ezio's Revenge Quest only without Altair's epic stoicism and professionalism, or Ezio's personality. Arno was a better character BEFORE he became an Assassin. He has more personality in the scenes where he's being chased by the two brothers than he does for the rest of the game. I'm convinced they have Elize in the game to shore up Arno's lack of overall personality.

I don't know, I've played them all and it's still fun. The graphics are amazing (pc) in unity and I really like the main character after connor and the pirate (can't even remember the name). They could have done a lot more with the story of course. But as I've just said it's fun and that is all that counts.

TheGrimReaper00111025d ago

I know this sounds obvious, but if you are sick of them, could you like oh I don't know, NOT buy them?

Just saying.

I complained about COD and after Modern Warfare 2, I quit the series. Simple.

Visualift1025d ago

Why would they stop making them if they are selling well and people really enjoy them? I'll buy each AC that releases because they're fun. You don't have to buy them if you don't enjoy them.

vicristion1025d ago

No one forces you to buy it. Continue to play call of duty that is short, linear, uses the same engine. Or play FIFA, NHL, NBA, etc. which really have nothing new (changing the numbers on the shirts to players), or play gta5 which has big problems online (you give out when you least expect). So play what you like. And giving up comments related about Assassins Creed.

KiwiViper851026d ago

I know right, they say its cause the helix translates it into your language, but the NPCs speak French.

After about 10 mins I switched to French dialogue, English subtitles. Much better. Makes it harder to watch cut scenes, but I'm not enjoying them much, the faces look excellent, but I can't stop staring at the ugly hair. I wish they all wore hoods.

TheGrimReaper00111025d ago

Then what was the excuse for Assassin's Creed 2, Brotherhood and Revelations?

There, Ezio talked english with an Italian accent and said some italian words here and there. I think they should have done it just like that, but then try a french accent. It makes it feel less out of place and not annoyingto see the cutscenes cause I too, have my game in French with English. Much better, but during the cutscenes, I only focus on the subs now :p

Blaze9291026d ago (Edited 1026d ago )

Yep. I'm done with AC. I just can't with all these games. Should've stopped after 3 to be honest. Shame because I enjoy the story universe but DAMN these are too many games.

....unless they bring Samurais and Ninjas. Then I'm all over that universe.

kneon1026d ago (Edited 1026d ago )

They keep picking cities that I've visited regularly so it's bound to happen :)

If I were to go by my passports, next up after London should be Tokyo, Seoul or Saint Petersburg. I'm leaving out the US cities as that's been done.

-Foxtrot1026d ago

It has to be a woman Assassin if it's set during WW1 or WW2

All the men would of went to war.

If it's not then it's a missed opportunity...but I won't be buying this at launch.

Fool me once Ubisoft

DOMination-1025d ago

Its not set during ww1 or ww2 its set during Victorian London so presumably some time between 1830 and 1900

Hellsvacancy1026d ago

Wow, I'd be shocked if I didn't expect a new AC game next year, I didn't think it would be revealed/leaked so early though. that must be a new Guinness Book Of Records

I can see the developer interviews now "This game has been built from the ground up, we've totally evolved the core gameplay to give you a fresh AC game like never before"

I wonder what other games we would have instead if Ubisoft didn't fund a yearly AC game, Far Cry 5 will be next, same thing, what games could we of potentially got instead, it's a shame

Visualift1025d ago

I'd love to see smaller crowds in favor of more explorable environments... maybe some destruction even to assist with getaways.

showtimefolks1025d ago

Yeh it's not like after this years game they May actually take next years off and release one in fall 2016, this franchise has so much fatigue. But I don't expect UBI to do that because well MONEY

UBI use to be a name for quality games not anymore

But I am more disappointed at the gamers who keep supporting the same sequels every fall yet cry about new IP's. Sunset overdrive is an awesome game but will it all as much as AC:unity? A big NO

Truly sad where gaming is today

Farcry 4 about the same as FC3
AC:unity broken and very very average story
Watch dogs nothing but over hyped and huge advertisement budget
The crew looks average too

No sign of new POP game
New Rayman game
Beyond good and evil

Seriously UBI is all about trying to make all their IP's into yearly sequels.

Oh BTW half way through 2015 we will get the PS3/Xbox360 versions of AC game will be ported over to ps4/Xbox one.

EA
UBI
Activision

All about the same now

KwietStorm1025d ago

So much truth. I REALLY want The Division to be good, and I really want Rainbow Six to pull me back in, but Ubisoft has voluntarily lowered their own bar.

Kidmyst1025d ago

They still have not fixed AC Initiates, shows I 100% synced all my games but shows I never started any of the stories, plus when it finally let me link the game to Initiates 1/2 the challenges were done but I got zero XP credit for them. no Club challenges (still comming), no daily challenges (still coming). I'll be done with Unity soon and will shelve it soon. I wished Ubisoft would have delayed Unity until everything works. I didn't even mention the numerous bugs too.

Hopefully they learn their lesson and try to fix the frames , I enjoyed Unity even with it's tech issues , it felt like an Assassin's Creed game again (though I did like Brotherhood more).

Brotherhood is the best.

CaptainSellers1026d ago

2, Brotherhood and Black Flag are the high points of the series imo.

I still think the first game is the worst but it was a good learning curve as we then got 2 and Brotherhood.
