Today Ubisoft teased the reveal of a new Assassin’s Creed game, and a new teaser picture includes some interesting details.
We all know its in London
Unity had a rough start, but ended up being a very fun AC game. Hopefully they can come strong in quality right away and continue to deliver interesting gameplay.
IT's not fun if you have sub 30FPS game to play. no i am not graphic wh*re but it's not enjoyable to play a game in 20 fps even sometimes less.
Wait what? As one who's played all their games and played Unity, I thought that game absolutely sucked. Broken beyond many ways and was piss poor.
We all now its ASSASSINS CREED VICTORY
From what we can see of the triler... -The eagle-headed cane sword on the right hand (=right handed sword fighter and left handed blade user like all AC games). Also the cane sword being concealed means they're (devs) targeting on social stealth (along with the disguise stuff from Kotaku leak back in January) -Samuel Fey (Let's just call him that for now...) weilds A SINGLE HIDDEN BLADE like Arno or Altair on the left hand. -On the left wrist you can see that... thing (shoots poison darts?). -Fighting will also include the use of fists (Metal plates over finger bones on the left hand and brass knuckles on the right hand) Also proves that the assassin doesn't rely too much on brute force (I could be wrong). -Also there are metal strips on the SIDE of the left hand. Meaning: You'll block incoming attacks with the left hand and fight with the right hand sword and most probably use the hidden blade with the sword during fighting) (For some strange reason these remind me of Batman Arkham games....) -The official assassin insignia is slightly different from the previous 'victory insignia'. -Graphics: Notice how realistically the water drips down the hidden blade and also from the eagle beak-tip of the cane? Also the reflections and the close up details look really better than Unity already (Hoping all of that's in-game).
I heard it's going to be set in Yarnham.
You're in the know, right?
London could be interesting. I hope we see Jack the Ripper
I swear, some people think that Jack the Ripper was the only person who existed during the Victorian era... He was just some random serial killer who's identity was never known, it would be cringey for Ubisoft to just label some random guy as Jack the Ripper, I do think that it would be a cool idea to have some murder mystery side mission involving his killings, although it should conclude with him not being found. @KiwiViper85 Oh please lol, the Assassin's Creed lore is already dumb enough as it is.
The reason he was never found was because he was killed and disposed of by Assassins... obviously.
It'll be funny when it's revealed to be exactly as Kiwi said in the game's story.
Didn't they Id him last September? Some mental Polish guy!
What if he was a templar :o
Jack The Ripper's identity has been proven. He was a Polish man long suspected of being Jack. http://www.theguardian.com/...
He was actually Lord Hastings the vampire.
Dragon, I wouldn't say that it was proven. That was something some random author determined (yes, he worked with a DNA specialist) and initially published in a tabloid. It has never been peer-reviewed and several experts have criticized it.
"The Ripper" was actually the queen's personal physician, and a freemason. He got away with quite a lot because his status granted him near-impunity to scrutiny or inquiry.
Not really a big AC fan, not since after the first one anyway, but I'm a Londoner so this could be really interesting. Plus I've been loving some Bloodborne since it came out and really liking the Victorian style setting.
It was confirmed in December.
Can't wait for my yearly AC fix. All the things that haters complain about don't matter to me. I'm all about the gameplay.
The gameplay is the biggest problem. The free-running is still bad in the series.
It was a new system in Unity, It'll be polished this time around.
No the missions are the biggest problem. They've been getting stale since Revelations with AC4 being the only exception.
Good for you. I don't really think yearly games are that bad as this game has a different team every cycle, its merely a yearly IP I would say. IF anything I would say marketing it is harder every year. In the respect that they don't have enough time to market the title prior to release. and Agreed with Kiwi, new engines always have those rough starts, this next game will be fine.
Oh we're all about the gameplay. Unless they find a way to make AC actually feel exciting and fresh, it's a problem. The freerunning especially. It's reached a point where you are basically spiderman. Hold down a button and make impossible jumps and climbs for days. That's not fun anymore, and more importantly, not exciting, it's meaningless and boring in a way. The answer to making freerunning more exciting is not simply ramping everything up to 11. The animations look good, yes, but that's about it. Unless they really make some changes, I'll never really be interested in AC games a whole lot. If they follow the same philosophy as COD, then their games aren't going to be very exciting. Now compare COD to Battlefield. Couple of games, then complete change - completely new feel to gameplay, new story, new engine, new everything ! That's why BF3 was so exciting.
After Unity Screwbisoft can suck my hairy bean bag
Love this franchise, can't wait for this and hopefully it comes out complete unlike its predecessor.
NO! stop it! AC unity was Crap!!, they need to do something new like in AC4 black flag, i cant believe they are going to do the same game, with a British skin, same minigames same collectibles and same missions! only instead of killing some french guy you will need to kill an English guy. oh come on JUST DO A SHOGUN ASSASSIN CREED ALREADY!!! assassins creed is begging to be in the Shogun era, how cool can it be to fight a samurai or a ninja there is so much options for cool things in a shogun era, why oh why... its beyond me. why not add new stuff like you did with AC black flag?! weapon crafting mechanics, hell even add RPG elements do something new for Fook sakes!!
Can I ask what was new in AC4, because I distinctly remember it being a goddamn expansion pack for the sailing sections of AC3. I'm on board with most of what you're saying, but for the love of God will everyone stop looking at AC4 with rose-tinted glasses. The vast majority of that game was the same ten-minute loop of sail around, find ships, wreck ships, wreck crew, repeat with the occasional island to find. Biggame Ubisoft (read: franchise game Ubisoft) iterates incredibly slowly with its games. People should be accustomed to this by now. Stop expecting the world of them when the most they've delivered is one very pretty city. (and a janky one at that)
after black flag brief appearence im still waiting for a portuguese assassin lol (obviously cuz im one)
Reported your username to the authorities and told them you confessed being an assassin! :)
lol i mean a portuguese assassins game cuz im portuguese but good catch
Ubisoft's reply (just like anything fans ask for) https://www.youtube.com/wat...
AC Sydicate time.
after unity, i'm fcking done with day one ubi games never more, when its going to a sale i grab
Will this be the Ghosts of the AC franchise? Or was that Unity already?
... and i still did not play AC Unity, did they fix the game ?!
They have. I only ran into one notable bug in the 40 hours I played (a dead guard shaking and hovering across the ground). I'm not defending the game - obviously it shouldn't have been released in the condition it was in - but if you enjoyed the previous titles, post-patch Unity is worth checking out.
Never understood why this franchise is so popular. There were really only 2 good games. IMO. Not picking up another for a while.
No huge ship battles, get the hell out!!
Yup, and another season pass and more faulty online. I'm so excited!
bubbled up m8
I really didnt enjoy that setting. Victorian era looks promising!
