Clipping Error discuss if the next Assassin's Creed game will mark a big change to the series, one that potentially opens it up to new fans.
The change from AC4 to Unity was definitely the biggest change in the franchises history thus far, I'm not saying the best change, but definitely the biggest.
Not really. AC 3 had more changes than any AC games ever had. It first introduced forest exploration, rock climbing, combat on uneven terrain, huge crowds (A deadly performance), it introduced life-like animations,realistic facial character animation, weather cycle, snow, smooth combat, huge scaled battles,naval combat,dual wielding, animal hunting, introduced a character that wasn't Ezio 2.0 (Looks at Arno) and tried to be original which gave Connor so many unwanted hates,the ONLY game to have an action packed serious Modern day, it introduced tree climbing etc... The game even has those annoying children! No other game in the series has that does it?
A disagree? What logic do you have? (Points to the one who gave disagree)
It's not the same, though. Because AC3, which I thought was the the worst until I played Unity, felt like the logical next step. I hated it, but not because of the changes. For instance, the tree climbing felt great and epic, but the maps were so badly designed that you had to go out of your way to go up a tree and in most cases the trees didn't take you anywhere, something Black Flag fixed. Unity, on the other hand, took the series in a different direction. Yes, the setting is familiar and Arno looks like Ezio. That said, the game plays like crap. I'm not even talking about the glitches, because I played the game for the first time a month ago or so. It's how broken the climbing mechanic is, how bad the combat is, the microtransactions. They also took out hidden blade combat (why? It was so sweet), or the ability to have two. Likewise, it feels like they took many steps back.
All they did is remove most of your abilities and make you have to level up to re-learn them. Terrible.
You'd think due to unities many set backs they'd skip a year and take thier time...
But that would be unprofitable remember D:
Depend's on the story. It should me more like AC4 than Unity. Infact, they should just make another pirate game. I couldn't get enough of it in AC4. Naval combat, looting ships, singing shanties in the ocean breeze. Unreal.
Yeah man. I loved AC4. Just make a new one called pirates creed. Same universe maybe? Either way AC4 is my fav of them all. Or at least on par with 2. I appreciate what unity strived for. But they removed hidden blade combat AND knife combat. Plus I played in day 1. The glitches were unbearable and nothing seemed optimized. I beat it and the same day traded it in. Never looked back. Play AC4 when I get the itch. Hopefully this new one pushed back on track. It seems like every other game is really good. So maybe...
The greatest change ever to this franchise is it going to the grave.
What changes? The setting is really boring and has been done already in many other games before, at this point I really don't see what they can change to make the game better or interesting again, if it was me I'd take a 3 year break and built a new one from ground up an entire new game set in egypt way back in time even before the first AC game and explore how the assassins brotherhood was created and maybe even play as the first and also the founder of assassin, imagine exploring the big desert finding secret tombs climbing pyramids riding camels now that would be the perfect assassin game for me
I'm expecting this game to have similar settings to Blood borne but maybe I'm thinking too weird.
Yes. Why? Because this is the first main AC game not made by the Montreal studio.
even they don't seem to have a clear vision for this franchise it's so obvious. it was supposed to end at 3 but they guy who was working on the original assassins creed and AC2 left after the second one and it shows.
