Where could the Assassin's Creed series go in the future? Here are 5 locations or settings that can't be missed!
The yearly releases burned me out on AC but i would be all over one release with Feudal Japan as the setting, nothing says assassin like being a ninja.
There'll be a side-scroller set in China, but a great idea nonetheless.
Feudal Japan all the way. It's the setting I've been wanting since the first AC game. So much potential there.
I always see people talk about Japan and being a Ninja. I personally think the idea would work REALLY WELL.... ....but it would be a disaster for Ubisoft. The problem with Japan is that, the setting couldn't really be topped. I don't think there is a single time period/setting the AC Universe could go that would be better. It'd have to be AC's swan song to end the series. No way are we getting a Ninja based Feudal Japan game and then going to another time period a year later like it'll live up to Feudal Japan. It's too perfect a setting and it would be AC's best entry. Like I said, problem is that it's downhill from there and I think the developers know it.
I'm not sure why you think this would be the end all be all. There are plenty of time periods that would make for great stories in an AC universe. I think you may be basing this off of some peoples extreme love of all things Japanese. This doesn't reflect everyone's feelings or thoughts. Ninjas and Japan are cool but that in no way means it be the greatest AC game ever.
Russian revolution, India during Alexanders evasion or during Indus valley civilization , or in Britain during the Romans are far more interesting then federal jpan..
I like how the author dumps all of Africa except Egypt in the same idea... Seriously? Africa is a continent. That's like saying an A.C. game could or should take place in, hmm, say, Europe or the Americas...
Well in defense of the author, he does say that there are many locations to explore (not implying that Africa is one big country). Not to mention depending on the era that is chosen, the political boundaries of Africa would obviously be different, unlike the other countries in the list.
Anyone at Ubisoft thought of maybe going forward in time? I realize the value of the locals so far, but it's getting stale.
Feudal Japan or modern era would be nice.
Russian revolution is far more interesting then federal jpan..
I'd prefer a WW1 AC game set in the Austrian-Hungarian Empire. Cities could be Vienna (which had about 2 million inhabitants in that time) or Budapest. The story could focus on historical figures like Franz Ferdinand - maybe even you could be the assassin who kills him... Plus the setting was never used in a video game before I think. At least I can't remember one game which was set in Vienna or Budapest...
Fun article with some cool ideas, I particularly like the idea of China or Japan as a location. I always liked the idea of a victorian era London personally. Love me some Assassins Creed :)
Victorian era London has a lot of potential, but I'm burnt out on the Western/European settings. I want them to go to Feudal Japan or Ancient China, and then later they can go Victorian London or Egypt or something like that.
Go back to the Jesus years, and we can parkour around Jerusalem as the son of god!
I think Stone Age would be pretty cool setting. We would play as some hairy cave man hunting some Mammoths with rocks and spears, while fighting the Templars evil tribes.
Victorian england, vikings, feudal japan, china or india when it was under british rule.
Ancient Rome for me.
