From PlayStation Universe: "The first Assassin's Creed Origins screenshot leak is with us, and it seems to confirm that a much-loved gameplay feature is making a comeback. Check out the first image of the new Assassin's Creed game in action!"
I can't wait for the E3 reveal and see the Ancient Egypt setting
Also, if I remember correctly, this new game going to make by AC 4 team.
Black Flags was great but felt nothing like an AC game
@-Foxtrot Imo that's the reason it was so good.
@Mykky I buy Assassin's Creed to be an assassin, not a pirate.
I thought this series was on break? am i wrong?
It took a year off (2016).
Syndicate released 2015 now we are in 2017 there wasn't main entry in 2016
cheers for clarification...time flies eh :p
yeah they took 2016 off so people would watch their crappy Movie & not confuse a game released that year for a movie based title.
We got a collection.... They didn't take a break... Lol.
@sevir And Assassins Creed 2 remaster looked like it was rushed out
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.
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.
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.. 😊
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.
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.
Yup, there weren't cannons or firearms in ancient egypt :p Or they making a sci-fi game..
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.
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.
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.
true, when i think egypt, i dont think of big naval battles. Though there is still potential i wont count it out just yet.
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.
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.
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?
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.
@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.
@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.
https://uploads.disquscdn.c... about AC game
I'm really liking what I'm hearing about this game. I can't wait to see it when they announce it.
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.
Going by the mention of the that particular Queen in the mission objective, it looks to be around 2500 BC then. Shame, I wanted the Roman Empire as well as Egypt and the Mediterranean in between.
I've only played the first game and I really did not enjoy it too much. I now happen to own all of the other games in the series (which were bought on sale or obtained through pack-ins or Games for Gold). Could anyone recommend a starting point for me to get back into the world of Assassin's Creed? Which is the best game in the franchise? Thanks -- Also, do I need to play them in any particular order?
Assassin's Creed: Syndicate and Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag
Those are not starting points
Assassins Creed 2 may be your best starting point if you find thr first too boring to play, which I Understand why you'd think that. 2 is arguably the best in the series. After that, play them in this order: Brotherhood -> Revelations -> AC3 -> AC4 If you have a Vita there's also Bloodlines (a prequel to the first) and Liberation. These two are not needed tho. Also I believe there's a remaster of Liberation for PS3 and 360. After AC4, beware! The series becomes a mess story wise and makes no sense, purposely to milk the franchise and full with MTs. Unity Sucks, Syndicate I heard it was good but I didn't bother with it because I'm still pissed at Unity for how broken it was day 1, so I can't tell. As an fan of the series, I would tell you not to bother with Unity and Syndicate, but if you want to play them go for it. Now we wait if they are serious about taking the series to its roots with this one. It should be another starting point, but I still recommend you play the ones listed above in order. They are great games, and forget the last two
Thanks for the suggestions and detailed analysis. I'll give 2 a chance and go from there.
I personally enjoyed Unity, that period of history is extremely interesting and the world they built was fantastic. I had maybe 2 or 3 bugs in the entire 40 hours I played it, the hate that game got is completely out of proportion to the quality of the game; while it wasn't the best game in the series, it was still a decent game. Syndicate is a flipping brilliant game and a was a real return to form in my opinion. As something of a history buff, it's the worlds these games create which I really enjoy, I do very much get a sense of the location and it's place in history when I play these games. If you just want to dip a toe in to see if you like them then Black Flag may be a good shout as it is probably the most 'stand alone' title of the whole series.
@LoveSpuds Unity IS garbage. I didn't touch until they had all the patches out and still you encountered mind boggling crowd/object/physics glitches LITERALLY every minute of playing. I can say the exact same thing about Syndicate. The only difference is, Syndicate IS a decent game when you ignore the bugs with incredibly likable characters, everybody you meet in the game even (it was a given Syndicate was going to have bugs too when built on the garbage, series destroying game engine. And the combat wasn't insufferable too like Unity. Where do I begin with Unity? The awful character that we ever got proper development with? He got over his dad dying didn't he turning into an Ezio copycat character AFTER the horrific death of his father. Was it the absolute lack of pretty much any modern day story that made it get the hate it deserved? Maybe it was the lack of getting to experience Arno's introduction to how to use something like the Hidden Blade or maybe the "You unlocked this item and this item since you completed Memory 3" was the way Arno did it in the past. Just like AC 3, DO NOT set your AC game during a country's war for independence, you will get a train wreck of a story with confusing plot and absolutely forgettable characters throughout. The only redeeming part of the game was the likable female protagonist, that would have been a better playable character since SHE wanted revenge for HER father's death and didn't completely forget about him like some other idiot. SPOILER, but then they even ruined her by giving us the worst death ever with Arno turning in an "Aren't bothered" reaction to her death. Phew, so yeah, even without the bugs, AC Unity is easily one of the worse AC games of all time and ABSOLUTELY is deserving of that title. And why wouldn't it be when the likes of a big fan like AspiringProGenji above said he never even got to touch Syndicate because of the damage Unity did to the franchise. It did so much damage, Ubisoft had to take note and listen and take a year out to actually go back and build the disastrous game engine from the ground up again lol. Unity was and IS STILL a bug ridden horrible mess of a game to this day. Lol I wonder what the sales of the next Mass Effect game are going to be like.
Who do you think will have the marketing Deal? I get the feeling this and new the Far cry will be with Microsoft, tho Assassin's creed and Far cry are normally shown on Sony's Stange
Surprised if not Sony. Why market to the smaller base?
if they'll continue with their always changing approach it'll be that MS will get origins. although realistically they would choose sony. they would want to squeeze the sales in.
I am not sure that it will be that much of a coup for whoever gets the deal, the popularity of the AC games is in decline really. I guess you have to figure Sony would be the most attractive option for UBI given there dominance in market share however, MS are quite desperate these days so I wouldn't be surprised to see MS pushing a "look how well this runs on Scorpio" narrative in an advertising campaign.
I really don't care who gets it. I care about good games, and that is something Ubisoft has to fix for me personaly, because the last Ubi game I bought was Far Cry 4. Open world is cool and all, but if there is nothing to see or boring stuff to do, well what's the point? I am however curious to see how they rebooted AC.
I've been wanting to try an Assassins Creed game, but when I see how the game keeps pulling you in and out of the "Matrix" I get turned off. Looks silly and seems to take away from the experience. Do all Assassins Creed games have the Matrix thing in it?
Syndicate hardly had any modern world element - just about 4 half minute cutscenes. The first three main numbered games had a while story around the modern day which was actually quite good and explains what the whole thing is about but does somewhat ask questions as to why the other games keep being made. I haven't played brotherhood or revelations though so may have missed out on something there. Wish they'd bring them to ps4.
Eurogamer confirmed that it's real http://www.eurogamer.net/ar...
"The game is reportedly set in ancient Egypt, and will kick start a brand new trilogy that will supposedly also include Rome" I hope that means we get to meet Brutus and Julius Caesar, seeing as the former is an assassin in-universe.
This screenshot leak looks impressive honestly. However, It is still a Ubisoft game. I will be extremely careful with it. If they brings us another shameful release, my boycott continues.
ubisoft sucks anyone who argues works for ubisoft.
And from the shit they keep pulling, I agree. They'd better not screw this up.
Ubisoft, please stop making AC shit and start doing new POP game.
If this game is anything like Black Flag having to get through the game by doing naval combat instead of it being an option or it being strictly for side quest only I'll pass.I like AC but the naval combat in BF imo was so annoying & frustrating that I traded the game in.
The thing that always most impresses me with Ubisoft games - and it is just a little detail - is how incredibly lifelike they've got water to look. By far the best produced in any games I've played.
naughty dogs water destroys ubisoft LOL
That isn't true though.
No it doesn't.
Never liked the naval settings
God my bodies ready for this. Plus far cry 5 is rumored to have a western setting?! 2017 is too much to handle
Oh my 1080ti SC2 is waiting
let this series die already. its been milked enough. use the same engine models textures just come up with a new story. the movie sucked too.
Cállate el hocico.
you're an idiot. i don't need jade Raymond to know that..
I'm liking what I'm hearing/reading......But...... .you know.......Ubisoft.
Naval combat from that screen shot? He has an ore in his hands, how does that tell you there's going to be Naval combat, it's a small rowing boat with sails. I don't mean to be a downer because i loved this aspect in AC games, but if the setting is egypt, naval combat isn't going to be what you think it is. It'll be manned by rowers with simple weapons, no cannons, mortars or anything like you've seen so far. They mainly used Naval combat for seiges and mass boarding of ships. I think it'll be fun to see that sort of thing in the game, but it won't be as entertaining as previous titles with it.
Not hyped about this game at all :/ the setting doesn't help
