Eurogamer: "Alex Hutchinson, creative director of Assassin's Creed 3, has told an audience at the Game Developers Conference that the game aims to strip back the ballooning complexity of the series' mechanics and story. "
I think cutting back to the basics and honing in on what made the series great is a good idea. The last two tittles, while great, where beginning to become saturated with things that weren't necessary to the game. Upgrading shops, and having groups of assassins with you and doing your bidding I could definitely do without.
You mean basics to like ac1 Hell no Ac2 and brotherhood were awesome and gave me faith in the series again
But sending those recruits on missions all over the Mediterranean is a nice revenue stream.
Hopefully no slow climbing like in AC1. Yeah it was more real but it was also a little to slow 8)
Going back to what made the series great that's awesome i wish more devs would do this especially COD that game seriously needs to be refreshed.
I don't think CoD needs to "go back to basics", it's been stuck there for 5 years. It needs to evolve.
Good. And non of those ridiculous online trophies either hopefully...
Sounds awesome. AC in the forest, climbing trees and snow stealth. Just what I didn't know I wanted. Kind of can't wait to see Valley Forge.
"It's a hugely complicated game..." Erm.. AC was never complex. "we're as much as possible tying to clear the deck for new players." Here we go. Aiming the game at people who If they havn't played the series already, they arn't going to start at AC3. Why not just keep it consistent. Indulge the fans with deeper story.
Actually, people that buys the WiiU and only owned a Wii last gen might. I just hope they don't make it too easy.
I welcome this news however it also means they are fully aware that they've rushed the others for a quick buck. I loved the original but it wasn't without faults. The second was great more so in comparison with the first. Brotherhood was awesome although it could be considered an expansion on 2. Revelations for me though was just awful, un-inspired rushed and i'm not sure what they done to the graphics exactly but they made ezios in-game face look something like a vegetable. I really enjoy the story though which is why i return, i just wish they'd take more time out to make huge changes(like what assasins creed 3 seems to be doing) rather than rushing the next to make a quick buck.
