COGconnected: Ubisoft's upcoming Assassin's Creed Odyssey is poised to redefine the entire franchise with a much heavier RPG feel. Curious what that means for you? Check out the 8 new features set to redefine Assassin's Creed Odyssey
Red Dead is better than Ass Creed
Dude.... they got nothing common Why would you bring rdr2 to the conversation? Do you really hate assassin's Creed (a game) that much that you want to downplay it in any way? You are a sad human being
I hate that Ass Creed Animus sequencing with a passion. It breaks game immersion
While AC Origins was great and I loved the new additions, and I am sure that Odyssey will be even better, and this being exactly what AC needed... This is AC catching up to rpgs today. RDR2 will be pushing open world games forward, not redefining itself. It will FINALLY give us dynamic gameplay this gen. Last gen’s TW3 has us all drooling over this gens possibilities considering dynamism in open world settings, and disregarding Kingdom Come, which tried hard to give us as immersive an experience as possible, this gen has been a bust...until now...and RDR2. Or these are my hopes lol!
Witcher 3 was last gen?? Go check again
Real confused as to why this weird ass game (which is copy+pasted from origins...) is getting people all excited? Origins actually stepped up and changed shit. With a good protagonist. This game looks like nothing new, I mean that literally, these areas are in origins. Both of these “characters” look wack, and running around the whole game in a skirt looks lame.
Though i am a fan of Assassins creed but RDR is Love..
Isn't that what they say every time?
Literally same sh*it, different place
Except Origins really did redefine the series so if they can improve and add to that then what is the problem?
No it didn't. It added a crappy weapon colour system.
Origins tweaked the series, but let's not get carried away. It really wasn't that different than those before it other than a more fleshed out skill tree.
"Redefine" is a strong word, it didn't redefine anything, it added little sprinkles on a tired mechanic and that was it.
Well, yeah. It's not like a dev at a press event is going to put out there "This is less ambitious than the last game and won't be redefining the series".
i stopped buying and playing this franchise with ac2. it is beyond me how these games are a thing.
If you genuinely haven’t touched any of them after that, why are you here? And really, try origins. It doesn’t feel or look like any of the crap before and it makes 2 look bad.
If you stopped playing this franchise after playing the best ac game then it's not for you.
"it is beyond me how these games are a thing. " Because they sell? Beyond me how that isn't obvious.
"Most ambitious" God I hate that statement now.
I have a feeling this will be the worst AC yet. Hopefully the next one goes back to the style of precious games
There are a few problems with this game that I wont mention now but one of the most glaring is that this happens before Origins, so that including some gameplay aspects shows me that this is not an AC game. I also recently played the Ezio trilogy and just confirmed to me that Ubisoft will never reach those heights with AC again.
SSDD. hear the same shit every year for these unoriginal titles like cod, assassins creed and fifa
Sounds like a rinse and repeat statement
Ugh....havent enjoyed an ac game since ac4. Played origins for an hour and just got completely bored. All these other games feel so generic. They need to go back and give us amazing storytelling and characters again. Im one of those that was completely against them killing off Desmond, I mean sure he wasnt a great character but they couldve just made him more likable and this happening just completely threw off the series as a whole for me. The modern world story could have been so amazing. Having desmond be an assassin in the modern world and just keep having him go through the animus as his ancestors to have him keep learning through them and such then ultimately he saves the world from the templars with the final ac game being in the modern world or something idk lol. Couldve just had like another 3-4 games after ac4 (and of course with having desmond still be alive with a different ending in ac3) and then the AC series couldve just ended there. I mean the style of these games are kinda like how cod is doing it so you cant really evolve it much so there needs to be an end. End it then move on to new ips with an open mind. Odyssey just looks bad imo...
Sure it will/is...
When the developers themselves start disrespecting the very lore they created and the fan-base that was created around that lore, you know the story is going to go downhill. AC suffers from this and that is why no matter how many rpg elements they add to the series, until they fix the story and stay true to the lore these new AC will never reach the same height as AC 2 did. Also ever since black flag the character are just not memorable. They also need to fix this.
Why is this game even called assassins creed anymore??
Just like the last one was supposed to eh? Come up with something else.
No they won't
So it will be the same as every other Assasins Creed game.
They speak this same marketing trash every time they vomit out a game. This trash series needs to disappear.
Can we get a game that is NOT ambitious? We have been getting the same "ambitious" game for half a decade now.
While Devil May Cry, God of War and Nioh re define melee action combat- this series is stuck in the PS2 era in terms of battle system.
Typical Ubi hype. Watchdogs will change the gaming landscape. The Division is like nothing you’ve played before. Yadda yadda ..
I am so tired of this series. It should die a horrible death.
