Ubisoft has priced its next Assassin's Creed game below the normal $70 MSRP of current-gen titles, and continues the cross-gen free upgrade promo too.
Quite excited for this one. I hope the price tag reflects the play time as well (about 6-8 hrs of story). Hell, if the story and overall game does a great job, I wouldn't mind paying $60 or even $70. Course we gotta wait to play the game ourselves before I think that lol. I'm sick of tons of hours spent on side quests and grinding in the rpg ACs, I don't even think of buying these games until they hit below $10 lol.
"I'm sick of tons of hours spent on side quests and grinding in the rpg ACs" Well like you said, they're rpgs so what do you expect? They're supposed to be full of grinding/side quests and whatever else, just like any other rpg. If you're expecting to blow through these games in 20-30 hours, then these games aren't for you. Nobody complains about an 80+ hour jrpg. These are basically the Western equivalent of those.
Shit I'll take a 80 plus hour jrpg any day.
And that’s the beauty of everyone being different. While you hated the side quests and long hours in the latest AC games, I enjoyed them thoroughly. Played Origins, Odyssey, and Valhalla with all the DLC (at least a good 800 hour totlal). But guess what, I’m also looking forward to Mirage as well. Get more Basim backstory.
I agree. I am currently playing Valhalla. A Basim story would tie everything together.
I think DF Weekly said it was in the 20 hour range. I don't think I minded the time in the recent AC games so much, but the massive maps with so much wasted space with nothing there. I think it was the last one, there was a huge section that didn't even have wildlife, for some reason. More importantly, I hope the smaller game can reduce the bugs. They've had a constant problem with objects floating in the sky or underneath something else so you can't pick it up. In Valhalla, I had a backlog at the time, so I didn't play until like 3 months later and still had problems with side quests bugged. One of the events they did broke one of the crafting upgrades, I think arrow capacity, so you were stuck with the default amount. By the time I got to the end, the main story was broken and I couldn't finish the game (I think everything was unlocked on the chart with all the people but the last one, but it wouldn't unlock).
Yea... this is sus. Ubisoft trying a fast one here. i bet the game is worth $40 in the end.
They've said repeatedly its a smaller game in length similar to the older ACs. Personally I think going back to the old days in a small world will be great
It was originally going to be DLC for Valhalla that got changed into a standalone game. We don't know if this is just going to be a one-off or the future of AC games.
It was, but it never progressed from an idea, all development was done with a new game in mind
Well, the next time you are complaining about a game being $70, just remember that you automatically thought "budget garbage" when a game was priced at $50.
Personally I applaud the relief. Canadian prices are stupid high. This one looks like a retro AC and is $20 cheaper. Sold.
Damn how much is Canadian prices compared to $70 USD?
Typically $89.99 plus tax although FFXVI is currently running at just under $94. Dead Island 2 is still at an even $98. It’s horse$hit.
# P_Bomb O wow $89.99 and games at $100 dollars! Yea I would wait for a deal for sure!
I'll get it on PS5 day 1. Since this one will be a bit shorter, may go for a completionist playthrough unlike previous AC games
I'm getting this one. Looks good to me.
This is Ubisoft we're talking about here.. if they're charging less for something there's a reason for that. If it's a genuine attempt to get fans back inside great. But this screams the games only about 4-5 hours to me.
Supposedly 15-20 hours.
If it's 15 to 20 I'll bite as long as it scores mediocre to 10s
Have you ever had a good thanksgiving dinner, but then after a week of leftovers you can’t stomach the sh*t anymore? That’s how I feel about Ass Creed.
Similar, but now I've had so much bad AC, I don't want it ever again.
Ouch wonder what's wrong that their only charging 50 bucks. Seems odd
It's no different from AC: Rogue or AC 3: Liberation. Those games was cheaper than the main entries. You guys complain about higher game prices and when a dev makes a game more affordable they can't be trusted and must be hiding something. 🤣
"Was originally an expansion for Valhalla." I'm sorry but how can mirage based in Baghdad Afghanistan, be an off shoot from a Norse viking-esque setting. Makes no sense.
It would if you played Valhalla. Hint: the main character in Mirage is an important NPC in Valhalla. "You widowed my destiny, Wolf-kissed! You broke all my hopes!"
I take it you didn't play Valhalla. The character you play as in here was in that game. He helped you in a story mission or two and he hangs out at your hub village once you build him a guild building.
Basim is a major character in Valhalla. Of course, also, there is evidence that ancient Norse people interacted with Middle Eastern people for trade, silver and so on.
I hope you were being sarcastic with that 'Baghdad Afghanistan.' Baghdad was and still is the capital of Iraq (you know, that country the U.S. f*cked in 2003 for no reason).
