Serbia will be good setting.It takes place in 1804. while First Serbian Uprising.When Serbia was fighting against Ottoman Empira for freedom.Takes place in Belgrade and Nis.There is a lot of serbian castles that can you visit and for completing mision get different serbian weapons like kuburas(turkish-serbish pistols) and maces.There is a lot of forests in serbia where can hero climb on trees.With wooden boats you can sail rivers like Dunav or Morava,or Nisava.Hero will have wipe,turkish sword,kubura and axe.I think that is perfect setting and time.You can hunt raindeers and bears.In game hero will go to different mountains like Kopaonik or Zlatibor.Animal skin you will able to sell or make another outfit.Hope Ubisoft is gona read this thread,and maybe make game like this.If they do,ill be so happy because i was born in Serbia.
OR we put it 180 later and we play a character who assassinates Josip Broz Tito.... :P
joke aside, i think the Balkan is not an interesting setting for AC, because nothing internationally significant happend around here - not atleast up to the late 1940s, and even then it's questionable. In my oppinion, this date is far to close to the modern times and any other time wouldn't serve great historical turnovers.
Not in First and Second uprising-OK.Some other time,not to modern but still in Serbia.Serbia had long history:The Romans,The Turks ruled over us.We have Lepenski vir where people lived in 6500 B.C.We have Vincha.Serbia was Kingdom,Republic,Empire.There were Nazis,Communists.We had great scientists like Nikola Tesla,Milutin Milankovic.We had great leaders,like Black George,Milos Obrenovic.We have a lot of forests,rivers,mountais,castles where can battles hapend.We had a lot of battles and wars-Battle on River-Misara.
We're still waiting for AC III, and you're thinking on AC IV?
In my opinion, Ancient civilizations would be the best, like Hellas, Roman empire, Egypt, much more, I think that, after 1800, AC wouldn't be a nice game. Because in that era, there were a lots of guns. We don't need guns. In AC III- its good, because we only have pistols, we don't have musket, and etc..( only Bow&Arrow, tomahawk, knife, hidden blade- its simply good) but if we have a lots of guns, then the AC becomes an unplayable game..
Ancient Civilization?Maybe.But what are you going to fight with?Rocks?Story will be great,but gameplay awful.I think that 18th century is good enough.Maybe,game that where Desmond isnt using Animus,but someone else.And not just one setting and time,but many.Itll be a lot of work for Ubisoft,but it will be awsome game.
The Roman Empire counts as an ancient civilization and they alraedy had catapults, let alone swords. So there are plenty of weapons to fight with. There is no need for guns and i really hope the next AC will go back to the past and not closer to the modern times.
All in all, don't get me wrong, i love your "čevapčiči" but i don't see an AC happening down here on your lovely little balkan.
