We Got This Covered takes a look at all the news that has leaked out about Assassin's Creed 3. Using that info, We Got This Covered makes predictions on where the series might be heading net.
Egypt = playing it safer Neon metropolis = risk of being unrecognizable
There's actually talk about going into Russia.
Where is it going next? VEGAS! LMAO!
I'm all for Saint Petersburg during the early 1700's. You've got Peter the Great, war with Sweden and the founding of Saint Petersburg. Lots of possibilities. And it's another city I've visited, so far I've been to every city in every AC game so I don't want the streak to end :)
Nah, they're going Back To The Future! Yeah............
How about USA?
how about no
U no like USA? BOOOOOOH
No. He no like the time period. Has nothing to do with the nation. That time period just doesn't work. I don't like the idea either. It needs to be in a time period where people primarily used swords/knives. Otherwise it will just turn into a splinter cell copy.
They're going to have to move to guns eventually. It's already pretty silly how 500-year-old Ezio carries a piece but nobody in the present day thinks to. I hope they do World War II-era France someday. I'm sure Assassins would have been kicking much Nazi ass back then.
Give us 20% of the next game outside the Animus. The historical gameing is groovy, but I really want to know more about Desmond and the real reasons behind the series. The Real world Sci-Fi part of AC is my favorite. I want more of it.
I agree, while I'm enjoying playing more of Ezio's story I'm glad AC:B (at least so far) has had a decent amount of Desmond time. It's his story after all and this story which still has to be played out, and all these events are connected to him through his ancestors. Honestly I'm a little worried for Assassins Creed though. With AC:B not even being out and Ubi already talking about ACIII, and now confirmation that we're gonna have another AC game in 2011 (not even 2011 OR 2012 like they previously stated) just makes me feel like this is going to turn to a situation where the story is going to become so convoluted like MGS from a situation where it never needed to be so. I hope I'm wrong but it's really looking like I'm not going to be.
lol, MGS story wasn't convoluted. It's just complex. I like complex plots like Assassin's Creed and Final Fantasy VII. I also like The Truth segments. It's amazing how they managed to intertwine real life events and problems into the conspiracy.
It is convoluted though, MGS4 itself was focused on tieing up all the "loose ends" that were left from MGS1-MGS3 as opposed to really extending the story. Portable Ops and Peace Walker have created retcons as if MGS4 didn't create enough itself and the story doesn't even look to be over with Rising and surely other games on the horizon.
I understand your reasons. MGS4 did feel it was more of a story to tie up loose ends. I mean, anyone who had not played the previous MGS games would be completely lost in MGS4. I guess if MGS4's story had any flaw it would be this. But as a big fan of the series, I enjoyed it and MGS4 really ended the story for me. MGS Rising is a side story that is set before MGS4. I think Snake's story is finished but who knows what Kojima might come up with next. But right now, Assassin's Creed main story focuses on Desmond. The progression of his story is almost nothing compared to Altair's and Ezio's stories. As a Ubi developer said, the ending of AC1 with the blood on the walls hasn't got much to do with the story of AC2 and its sequels but it's important to the mythos of the story. You sound like you wouldn't want to be a fan of LOST Nate-Dog. lol
I would like to see one in the Asian side of the world. Maybe a Chinese assassin in the Han dynasty or a ninja assassin in feudal Japan. With all the martial arts films featuring wire-fu and running across rooftops, we're already half there to making a AC work in those settings. *drools*
First video game where you can fight Genghis Khan. Sadly, Bruce Lee will be the final boss, so instant game over.
I want to learn more about Desmond outside of the Animus, so I'm not really hoping for some elegant landscape for one of his ancestors to explore. Also, unless something was revealed in Brotherhood that would change this, I don't think the futuristic setting would make sense. Desmond goes into the Animus to relive his ancestors memories, it's not a time machine to send him into the future.
A futuristic AC would be unreal, set in a Blade Runner like universe
this might be on of the best ideas I've ever heard. Using the architecture of blade runner would make that game look astounding
Some place in Europe
Dont forget the black plague!
I would love for it to stay in the same time period, but maybe in a new location, not Italy/Rome. I would hate if they went way into the future, or even a modern Assassin's Creed, if they did that I think it would not do well at all.
I agree. They need to keep that historical side of the game, since that's one of the draws of the game.
I'd like to see Desmond scale Abstergo's HQ, then Leap of Faith off the top of it ^_^ Seriously, with the ending Brotherhood had, I hope that we see Desmond really kick some ass; Conviction style. SPOILERS in the reply (sort of -.-).
i didn't understand the ending :(... i think he's dead .. can anyone tell me what happened ?!! . please :) i think they will make a new character !! just like in assassin creed 2 , in assassin creed 1 it's different character and now desmon on assassin creed 2 and brotherhood completed it .. assassin creed 3 will have different characters and after that all of the assassins will come together :P XD
Firstly, at the end of the ACB, that was not MINERVA. It was a different person called JUNO. She controlled Desmond to stab Lucy most likely because of the chemistry between the two. Both Juno and Subject 16 wants Desmond to find "Eve" (most likely not the woman's real name). Lucy is NOT evil because in AC1, if you use Eagle Vision at the end Lucy is in blue which indicates ally. Subject 16 randomly mentions Desmond's son. So it could be we are actually experiencing Desmond's memories through his son who is an animus in the future somewhere. Juno definitely wants Desmond to be with Eve while Subject 16 only tells Desmond to "find" Eve. During the credits two unidentified men find Desmond in shock and decide to put him back in the animus to fix him.
And there will be a pile of hay to break his fall of course.
i prefer to play old ages , only with sword :( .. i hate modern things !! i want swords !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!! T__T
hopefully that 'place' where assassin's and brotherhoods were born. Not Italy,the future,or montreal. Not France,the past,or the middle east.
Asia or Egypt.
I would like Egypt/Asia. Medieval England would be nice too.
NOBODY MENTION ZOMBIES
""the Third Crusade and the Renaissance looked more similar than most would like, in the jump between AC:1 and 2""
My thought exactly. One period had the feeling of a dark war-ridden conservative atmosphere where the grey buildings had perpendicular rooftops and the people wearing long one piece clothing. The other period had a light hearted atmosphere where the colourful buildings had rooftops which were triangular and the people wearing stylish antique European clothing. Not to mention the casual appearances of prostitutes.
For the next AC3, I will like it to be in the present. If they go back to the past again, the only thing I ask is, "Do not let horses go into town". I found them very annoying.
The next Assassin Creed really need some sort of costume system. It's silly to think that you can run around killing people in your white threads, beaked hood and shinny armor without the guards getting suspicious at the very sight of you. I also would like a new story line that isn't knee deep in cryptic bullshit conspiracies. I played Assassin Creed 1 and I'm mid way through 2 and I still have no clear idea as to WTF is going on.
Victorian London would be interesting, around the 1880's when Jack the Ripper was thriving Whitechapel. Not sure if the aerobics would suit the setting of Old London though. Ancient China or Federal Japan could be good too.
Ubisoft have said in the past a personal favourite would be in Japan. That would be interesting to see.
India - the maharaja times!
You sounds like you're from London
