Not a big deal, seems like a weird decision though.

Won't need one. From the gameplay, they're using the skyrim style info bar at the top showing locations/quests.

Yeah I guess. I'm not too worried about it either way. It would suck if AC became menu heavy like skyrim. Pausing the game every 5 seconds.

Even tho it's gonna be hell of a ride without a map, I respect the effort, might even like it more.. I like challenges.

i get lost pretty easy. A mini map would be appreciated lol I'll still buy the game though.

Edit: Getting lost in the desert seems like a real possibility now xD

they put a compass system like Skyrim

In previous far cry games the mini map came in handy for the looting after you took out an outpost.
Finding the letters, dimonds etc without a mini map ain't gonna be easy.

Hope they get rid of Eagle Vision or any alternative visions also.

You have that bird you throw in the air and is basically a remodeled drone from ghost recon

Interesting from a design perspective. They're trying to make things more organic for the player, should be interesting to see how it affects a person's overall experience. I know I constantly rely on minimaps to a fault, but being asked to remember where I've been and where I'm going will be a nice change of pace. I just hope this doesn't lead to having to constantly open up the larger map to find out where I'm going.

well, the problem would be if they threw in 300-400 chests you have to find (which counts towards 100% completion), it would be a pain in the ass to search for them all without having some kind of minimap for you to reference.

Swiftfox336d ago (Edited 336d ago )

I'm hoping the decision to drop the mini-map will include dropping tedious collect-a-thons. This is a chance for them to get creative with what is discover able on the map.

ziggurcat336d ago

I don't mind collectibles, but they really got out of hand with them - Unity was the epitome of collect-a-thons. It's Ubisoft, though, so there'll no doubt be collectibles in this game.

They at least lessened them in Syndicate.
