"For years now we've enjoyed the adventures of Ezio Auditore as he makes his way through the Italian Renaissance and Ottoman-controlled Constantinople. That story is over. Ever since the conclusion of Assassin's Creed II, a senior team of Ubisoft developers has been secretly toiling away on what comes next. That team aimed high, with plans to examine and rethink every element of the franchise from the ground up, build something new, and take a full three year development cycle to do it. "
Whatever are they cooking for us? A whole new combat system so we can fight against more then one at a time and AI that actually aren't stupid? And auto aiming as said before, and that you have to account for weather shifts and so? My god, this can mean anything and its time to speculate don't ya think?
Well, it was just confirmed. Box art and setting. Looks like Mr. Concept Art was real after all. It's all over Facebook and Twitter.
EDIT: Obviously, I'm late to the party but I just got back on and saw it. My heart is.....torn right now. He looks really badass and I love that he's got a tomahawk and he's NA, but I'm still really not likin the AR thing. Maybe I'll come around when I see more of the game. Great that we're getting info so early though, and here's to AC3!
He still might be less of a one man army, even though he's going strapped.
With longer reload times on the guns and bow, and more noise from the higher-powered guns, there could be a lot more thinking to do about when and where to risk a shot. My personal prayers are for no more auto-aim, and that you also have to learn to aim higher in order to hit targets over a distance.
When I heard the rumours of an American Revolution setting I was really disappointed.
Then these pictures started appearing...
They Look Awesome! I can tell, it's going to be different from the others but in a good, fresh way! The fact that it's been in development for three years and that the team have been rethinking all elements of the game is encouraging! I'm honestly overwhelmed with the awesomeness of AC3 already!
