We have been able to ride several things in this series, what would you like to see in the future?

If they do the 20s Berlin setting I want or World War 1 then obviously planes it is. It is the Path of Zelda after all: From Wind Waker (Black Flag) to Spirit Tracks (Syndicate) and now all that's left is Skyward Sword.

And AC could do flying in a way no one has done before. Not even GTA, where clouds, weather are a thing and factor. And since this is early 20th Century, we can have biplanes, which means we can have wing-walkers.

Planes and airships would be really cool!

I could also see them reusing Far Cry assets again and giving us elephants.

Though, in the end, I think we all want to see Assassins riding bicycles. :rolleyes:

You know, I'd settle for horses that don't friggin' suck. How's that? :rolleyes:

No cars/planes/airships; going any more recent in time would be disastrous for this series. The WWI stuff was fun, but in a goofy, campy way. No more of that, please.

Many people would've said the same for carriages, steamships, and trains a few years ago...

Heck, if 6 years ago someone on these forums had proposed an AC game where you spend about 40-50% of the game piloting a pirate ship, they would've been laughed out of the room.

Yeah, and I still say it. Syndicate isn't a very good game, but at least we're still pre-machine guns.

This series needs to get back to basics in the worst way.

I feel like I say "too each their own" or some variant far too much on this forum. I've got to get a new thing.

THIS, OMG Ubi give me a plane!

I want the next game to take full advantage of Rifts and go really Anachronistic, perhaps even moving away from traditional linear memory sequences to a non linear narrative. Imagine flying a plane for one sequence, then back to an open world medieval (13th century) Cambodia, followed by viewing some stuff from the Vietnam war, then jump to 19th century Siam, and eventually unlock first civ sequences where you play as Eve...

Sorry I blacked out their for a second from the extraneous hype for something I just made up.

Pretty much everything but Bicycles (with maybe some exception for Modern Day). I really want to see good horse riding in an AC game. If they can perfect mounted gameplay it will open up new, less urban settings for future games.

A giiiirr- Bicycle. :rolleyes:

Syndicate teased, but now we need to go a step further. Into the Jazz Age.

Oh, and the idea of the planes sounds quite nice.

Well what are AC's basics? The basics are social stealth, parkour and climbing/platforming. That can be adapted in many contexts and it's not exclusive to medieval eras at all. If you read online you will find plenty of cases of assassinations and hits or disapearrances/"mysterious deaths" and other such things which still happen in the modern age. A 20th Century setting could actually be the most stealthy and social of all these games, because that is the defining feature of modern life.

And besides, Ubisoft themselves are interested in doing a 20th Century AC game, you can tell that in the way they shoehorn stuff like Leonardo Machines/Parachutes in ACB, Time Anomalies in Unity. Syndicate likewise has carriages that are basically cars. In fact that's the absurdity, they said that they wouldn't do 20th Century settings before because memories of commute would be hard to justify or some in-Animus crap like that, that applies to carriages in SYNDICATE. Which means there's nothing stopping them from doing cars.

Some peple are against the 20th Century mostly because they think it will be America and this would become a GTA-clone. But there are other interesting places in the 20th Century. Berlin in the 20s for instance was the Golden Age of the city. That was the moment when it became the capital of the avant-garde and the science capital as well. In any case we are in 2015, in three years time it will be 2018, hundred years since the end of the First World War and the October Revolution, so the 20th Century is a proper historical era. You also have Shanghai in the 20s-30s.

Would also love to see a Korean Turtle ship if we ever go 16th century Korea
