The story is too old to be commented.

I can't wait for the E3 reveal and see the Ancient Egypt setting

UCForce524d ago

Also, if I remember correctly, this new game going to make by AC 4 team.

-Foxtrot524d ago

Black Flags was great but felt nothing like an AC game

Mykky524d ago

@-Foxtrot
Imo that's the reason it was so good.

@Mykky

I buy Assassin's Creed to be an assassin, not a pirate.

solideagle524d ago

I thought this series was on break? am i wrong?

ocelot07524d ago

It took a year off (2016).

KTF26524d ago

Syndicate released 2015

solideagle524d ago

cheers for clarification...time flies eh :p

Seraphim523d ago

yeah they took 2016 off so people would watch their crappy Movie & not confuse a game released that year for a movie based title.

Sevir523d ago

We got a collection.... They didn't take a break... Lol.

RommyReigns523d ago

@sevir

And Assassins Creed 2 remaster looked like it was rushed out

IamTylerDurden1523d ago

solideagle has a point, a yr off, is that really a break?

Sly cooper 3 doesn't get enough credit for that Naval Combat Sucker Punch introduced. Most believed it was something fresh and new when Ass Greed 3 did it, while I was just feeling nostalgic.

FullmetalRoyale524d ago

Funny, I went back and platinumed the Sly Collection well after platinuming Black Flag, and I thought something similar as well. Now, Black Flag did it better, but I was surprised how fun it was in Sly 3. Things like boarding enemy ships, the shanties, and the upgrade system of Black Flag send it way above Sly, for me.

mixelon523d ago

There really wasn't anything all that unique about the gameplay, the only thing these games brought was the transition from platforming to boating/piloting with the same character... It's entirely likely they came up with it separately without ever playing or knowing about the similar thing in Sly.

What I'd like to see is something like mass effect with less rpging and with a smaller, firefly-ish sized ship you can pilot in the same way.. 😊

GreetingsfromCanada524d ago

Geeez, people are getting way ahead of themselves. Take a close look at that BOAT, it'll mainly be for transport. Fighting may be possible, but not in scale, capacity or style it was in previous games.

LoveSpuds524d ago (Edited 524d ago )

Agreed, I don't see anything here that suggests there is a naval combat as per Blackflag. While piracy was a huge problem in this period of history, it was all about archery and boarding vessels and I don't see how that can translate into fun gameplay compared to the combat in Blackflag.

Mr-Dude523d ago

Yup, there weren't cannons or firearms in ancient egypt :p
Or they making a sci-fi game..

FullmetalRoyale524d ago

It's a bit disappointing for me, because I basically want Black Flag 2. But seeing this, I look at as a positive. I now know to keep my expectations in check, and to actually look and see what they present, as opposed to wanting to see something specific.

LOGICWINS524d ago

You may be right. The insider says there will be a "pinch" of Black Flag. Naval combat might not be the focus here. I think Ubisoft will surprise everyone by announcing some sort of standalone pirate expansion. That's what gamers have been asking for.

Elda524d ago

I hope you're right about it only having a pinch of naval combat that part in BF was so annoying..imo it just wasn't fun.

thejigisup524d ago

true, when i think egypt, i dont think of big naval battles. Though there is still potential i wont count it out just yet.

_-EDMIX-_524d ago

Well Egypt had a Deep River and Canal system along with many ports.

People don't think about Egypt as a huge water way simply because they're thinking of what they know of Egypt as today not what it was before.

rainslacker523d ago (Edited 523d ago )

Ships weren't on the same scale as they had during the Black flag era....massive deep sea sailing ships....but they did indeed have naval combat. It was different than cannons and boarding like you saw in Black flag, but they had ships large enough to stage attacks on other ships, as well as against land based targets. But most of the ships were used for transporting soldiers to their targets.

While I'm not really familiar with the overall naval capabilities of the time, and I can't recall there ever being any large scale naval battles recorded in history, they most certainly had enough territory with water access to warrant having a fleet. The Nile is massive, and ancient Egypt's kingdom extended well beyond the country of Egypt into various seas and oceans.

_-EDMIX-_524d ago

How do you know that's the only boat in the game?

I mean did you just literally assume that the screenshot confirm that was the only boat you're ever going to be in the whole entire game?

RabbitFly523d ago

Dude.. The point he is making is that the article assumes naval combat out of the screenshot. Which, considering the boat, is much more ludicrous than assuming nothing until proven otherwise.

_-EDMIX-_523d ago

@Rabbit- Not really bud.

They could be assuming Naval combat simply seeing ANY BOAT AT ALL! Its saying BOATS (PLURAL) is a concept in the game, its not that hard to come to the conclusion of a return to other features in past games. In fact its sorta the default of what to expect.

That is like saying you saw a Red Dead 2 screen shot of a character riding a baby horse and assuming the game will have NO COMBAT on ANY horses based on the EXACT horse shown in the screenshot.

THINK! Even for a little, THINK!

They might mean it based on the existence of boats, NOT based on that exact boat you see. It is a fair assumption.

LoveSpuds523d ago

@Edmix

Actually, piracy was more of an issue in the Mediterranean Sea rather than on the Nile itself, with the various sea people's from the likes of the Hittites, Persians and even pirates from Crete and Greece roaming the coasts attacking ships and coastal towns.

I'm really liking what I'm hearing about this game. I can't wait to see it when they announce it.

Blu3_Berry524d ago (Edited 524d ago )

This will definitely be the highlight and main focus for Ubisoft this upcoming e3. Curious to see how the series have evolved since they got a bit more time to work on it.
