Damn they add a stamina bar
It looks like it’s only for dodging... idk how I feel about it yet. It also seems kind of slower don’t it.
Graphics look pretty bad. Probably this is an old build or a console version or youtube compression.
Gaming 101 sees no problem with a mystical beast teleporting all over the arena and summoning lightning but draws the line at female protagonists as unrealistic and you fools actually agree with him?? Are gamers all just a bunch of sad incels?
@Gaming101 Why are you blaming a game, where you can kick people up in the air and 4 meters away from you, teleport, jump 8 meters down without dying, stabbing and slashing people 10 times without them flinching and so on for being unrealistic when it comes to portrayal of woman’s strength? I’ve never seen a man do any of that in real life either. It’s fantasy, lol. It seems that your only concern for realism is the portrayal of woman and not any other aspect... smh
It's a game based in fantasy so none of that shit you mentioned is of any relevance you inceled basement dweller.
Gaming101 Tennis and martial arts are completely different. I have no doubt almost 100% of females who religiously train at martial arts could wipe the floor with almost every man on this site. When you look at females who compete often they've had to persevere more than any man and when it comes to a drawn out fight are less likely to give up because they're mentally more prepared. Watch some UFC and then say its unrealistic because I know Id definitely get trashed and that you would too.
@Gaming101 Dude, you must question yourself and ask why you even care?? why this bothers you in anyway
@Aeery Or Stadia lol.
This is trash... Hard Pass....
The combat in the game play looks pretty lame.
Yeah that makes no sense, even it is for the dodge. I wish these companies quit copying the Dark Souls formula.
Just FYI, stamina bars have been around decades before Dark Souls.
They have been and I never cared for them. I have been an Iaido and Kenjutsu practitioner for decades. I can't count the times I have cut with the katana 3 times and then couldn't move for a few seconds. No. Just no. Sekiro > Dark Souls. I am also tired of striking an antagonist with an edged weapon and the only thing damaged or reduced is their health bar. Its 2020. I have a collection of axes here - in reverence to my Norwegian and Danish lineage. I will guarantee if someone is struck with one they aren't going to keep dodging around. I get the gameplay elements - just completed Nioh 2 and am waiting on the first DLC. But someone needs to break the mold with these designs.
It looks like like witcher3...
Idk, this doesnt looks good. If this is next gen then I am actually disappointed. It needs a lot of more work. Such a lethargic fight.
Is this even Assassins Creed? 🤦🏻♂️
I've been asking this question since I first saw AC Odyssey gameplay.
Yeah? What makes you think otherwise?
Of course it is. The supernatural side? Yeah the first had a guy with a piece of Eden that gave him powers so this is nothing new. The stealth? Yeah you can still do stealth here. The combat? That's improved too. Having been with the series from the start I only welcome these improvements.
Graphics still look pretty bad for the end of this gen and next Voice acting sounds terrible, just pick a default character, build them up and get a good voice actor Looks the same as Odyssey and Origins in places Oh and what's with all this fantasy stuff with magic or mythical creatures, the older games had their "out there" moments but it was on the Sci-Fi side not fantasy. How long can Ubisoft get away with this, they literally use the "new theme" as a gimmick for each instalment. "Climb the pyramids" "be a spartan" "strike your enemies as a Viking warrior"
Origins and Odyssey had fantasy stuff too, like Medusa and those Trials of the Egyptian gods
I have both but no time to play them😒
I thought Origins did it perfectly. That afterlife DLC was so dope, I just road around the fields endlessly. That was my jam.
This is my point really Origins on ward has turned AC into a parody
They definitely need a major rework. Sure it’s a new game but same old formula over and over. They only way id play AC again is if they revitalized it like god of war did.
They revitalized it with Origins and continued with Odyssey. This is what came of that. And original AC games were the exact same issue, same formula over and over. So was God of War, to be honest. Not saying you have to like it or should, but these arguments tend to be saying the same issues with general game development and not specific to just this one.
As usual Ubisoft seem completely devoid of creativity- if you've seen the For Honor documentary you can see that all the creative talent they do/did have they end up ousting over the course of their projects to make something so risk-free they might as well be copying and pasting their games, it's such a sad sight to see.
Origins onward was your rework. A Assassins Creed in the style of God of War would be interesting.
- I'll wait and see the graphics on my TV when I play the game. - Voice acting does need improving. - I feel the setting is different enough to stand out. - Fantasy over Sci-Fi? So what? Given Egypt, Greece and the vikings have a greet pool of gods to pick from I enjoy these fights more then some guy with a magic apple. - How long as you going to keep complaining about Assassin Creed games? I welcome the changes been made and the series moving into more of a RPG. The game after this will probably be the same. Something tells me the series isn't for you anymore and in that case it's time for you to move on.
So you’re saying is a game which started off more down to earth with sci-fi elements it makes more sense for magic, gods, and supernatural to exist rather then say you put it a “magic Apple” which was actually just high end technology another civilisation invented to control their genetically man made slaves. Okay then... Oh and I’ll complain anyway I see fit, literally over HALF of the comments here are negative so, I’ll wait for you to reply to everyone
Looks awful. Skipping this dumpster fire.
We all wanted gameplay. Not sure what people were expecting. Its a last gen game through and through.
But it's not coming out on the PS3/360. ?
PS4 is last gen? Huh.
I guess I'm one of the few on here who likes it. I like the new rpg direction and as long as they don't make it too much of a requirement to do side quests to level I'll be fine with it.
"I guess I'm one of the few on here who likes it." You are not alone. Also, this is N4G ...
I don't like it yet, but I really enjoyed Odyssey and hope it turns out to be something like that. I do get people wanting to see a "classic" AC game made. But, these are the same people who have been complaining about those games since AC3.
If you like the formula, you'll like the game. I definitely won't get this at launch if at all, only because I just started Odyssey - the first next-gen only AC will be the next big step.
I like what I see too, despite the bootleg quality of these video leaks.
Not impressed by this at all.
Maybe Ubisoft should just start a new franchise. AC needs to sit on back burner for a while.
I still dream of a new Prince of Persia...
I hear you pimp.
I loved the reboot they did, was sad no one else seems to.
Ugh go back to counter chaining kill combat. I thought with Ismail taking over Valhalla might bring back some proper AC stuff since he did Rogue and Flag, but nope, sticking with garbage Origins and Odyssey hack-and-slash healthbar combat.
Uh... enemies in Rogue and Flag had health bars if you didn't stealth kill them. Let's also not forget that ship battles were essentially the exact same thing as these boss battles. Health bars and all. I get your meaning, but I also should point out this isn't the normal combat scenario. Most enemies you can stealth kill in Odyssey and Origins just like in the older AC games. It's not representative of the game as a whole but a minor fraction of it. Don't think you'll still like it, but, at least recognize that the old games had health bars as well and regularly forced you into scenarios where stealth wasn't an option at all.
This is the leaked footage it may have been re-encoded at 1080p but its sill low quality.
I'll probably still buy it and enjoy it, but has this thrilled or excited me? No, not at all.
She sounds like an old lady.
This one sounds so gruff. I really liked Kassandra. A nice alto timbre to her voice. This one makes me feel like I might not play as female because it sounds one-dimensional. Bonus, male option is voiced by a certain red-headed favorite north of the wall member from Game of Thrones.
Yeah, I liked Kassandra as well. Unless they have some options for customizations, I'll be going with the wildling as well.
He is voiced by Magnus Bruun wasn't in Game of Thrones but The Last Kingdom.
Could be the currant gen version
Just go play "Viking: Battle for Asgard" lol /jokes, go play "Viking Conquest" for Mount and Blade Warband.
Animations look a little rough around the edges. Assets are hard to judge with the quality of this video. I don't expect a visually mindblowing game considering it's cross-gen. It seems to be running on PC. The framerate is in the high-40s/mid-50 most of the time. I wonder what hardware that ran on. I think Ubisoft said they're targeting 30fps on next gen consoles too. Seems strangly demanding for a cross-gen game.
this is just a reskin of assassins creed Odyssey.
Is it a same Assassin Creed game as before? I mean this one lost the Assassin Creed’s vibe.
not that impressive. hard pass.
Hmm... need to see more. Video compression makes it almost impossible to see any details properly. But first impressions is basically more of the same formula as Odyssey. Disappointing. Hopefully we will get a proper look at it during the Ubisoft Forward event.
I mean what did you expect ? It's odyssey with a new coat of paint. At this point they should just call it Ubisoft the game
Damn this is not going to sit well if this game is priced at $70 bucks for next gen, when you already have the PC version for $50 or $60 bucks!!! It looks like the same old formula as Origins and Odyssey. They are not going to get a buy if the next gen version is just no load times smh.
I really wanted to like this, but after the vids I've seen.... Meh. Might pick it up on the cheap in a slow time.
Let it go Ubisoft smh, what is AC anymore?
Is it just me (as a Soulsborne veteran and someone who's never played an AC), or does the combat look uninteresting and easy?
still looks like crap
This looks poor...
So much for next-gen with this game. Screams current gen and not a great one either. Its still early but looking more like a launch game.
The way I see it, stamina is effected by heavy attacks bow hits and dodges. Light attacks fill up the gold bars which refill your stamina instantly. They got skyrim's skill tree going on too. Not bad, not great either a Lil clunky hopefully will get smoother.
Copying GOW couldn't be more obvious
mehtastic ! :D
