This sharing thing is garbage. Promote your games yourself, Ubi. Don't ask me to do it for you.

What the...? Dudes, it's AC3! This is the moment we've all been waiting for, so stoke up!

I can see your aversion towards promoting for them, but this is still a cooler way to promote than to just release with no fireworks or anything. 100k on Facebook for a map sucks, but this is like the puzzles in AC, and totally worthy and in the spirit of the game.

It isn't AC3.

Also, there are different forms of initial marketing and promo strategies. The vast majority of fans enjoy the ARG.

How do you know? Do you have any read for me other than the press release on FB?

Soooo. Brotherhood 2, then? Or AC 2.75?

I have a feeling it's some sort of handheld (Wii/NDS/etc.) sequel or side game to AC:B, not AC3. But I guess we'll see.

News about the next AC are supposed to be released in May 18th I think.

EscoBlades

May 13th actually, in Game Informer magazine.

As for AC, numerous Ubi reps have confirmed that "an AC game" would be revealed in May, for release at the end of this year. First mentioned at Ubi's financial call at the start of the year. Also confirmed on my podcast by both our ComDev and the Production Manager (Gabe and Aymar)

"An AC game" does not necessarily equal AC3.

I hope it isn't AC3. Or if it is then it's far from release. We wouldn't want it's release and development rushed. It's AC3, a whole new game, not an extension to the story like Brotherhood was.

no **** sherlock

what CrazySchrapnel ment is that it would be very fast to release the third installment in the series, and i agree with him


About that unlocking, do we just have to "like", or post the thing as status message. And does liking it with others help?

Assassinsyk
04-30-2011, 06:28 AM
You have to like it, yes. If you wish to promote it, it will unlock sooner.

Actually, the fact that it's not AC3 is even better news, although I can't imagine what it'll be. Maybe an extension with Altair, like B. was to AC 2. And a whole new MP, on top of the old so we don't split the base.

Thanks, Esco. I'll check it out! Any other significant details?

Btw, I'm on my iPhone, so can't check the page. What's the percentage now?

I suspect we won't see any more of Altaïr in AC3. The franchise has a heavy emphasis on story and he has already undergone a massive character change, so I'm not sure what else they could do with him to make it interesting. Plus, reviving Altaïr would be a bit disappointing to fans longing for a new assassin to play as.

persiateddy95
04-30-2011, 06:45 AM
There's a large thread about this already on the General Discussion. Seems like Altair is back?

Really, they're ripping it off from Prince Of Persia even more. There's also a PoP game called Revelations.

What, so having a game which contains free running and swords is "ripping it off from Prince of Persia"?

No, a game that contains free-running, swords, same general geography, same name, and is produced by the same company is a rip off.

i have played the 2008 Prince of persia (pc) Didin't like it that much. Lots of the same running around, the dialogue was poor, and the story wasn't even properly finished ( i watched the dlc epilogue on youtube). Not to compare with AC

That one shouldn't even be called Prince Of Persia.
I'm talking about the Sands Of Time Trilogy. There's a cutscene in AC2 that looks totally like one from WW.

16% now. And I'm hoping this isn't a major console release...or, as someone has said before that the release date is far in the future. Sure, I really want a new AC game, but I expect greatness from them...and this is too soon for greatness...

Just because they reveal details now, doesn't mean they're calling it finished. I have faith in UBI, and since AC is their biggest franchise I doubt they'll disappoint by releasing something under par. Remember, they have all the money and man hours in the world now. In other words: if this is for something other than console, I will flip. Tricking me into advertising for Nintendo DS or whatever, not cool.

Most nervous about the fact that they have lost their original AC team. And hoping it won't take ages to unlock, now that all the fanboys have pressed like.

yea if it is for 3DS i will be really annoyed because I don't totally consider them apart of the main series. You don't need to play those to totally know what is going on.

I think it is like a 2.75 or 1.5 cuz its supposed to be like altair...which my only thought on this is they are going back to adah because she is related to eve. And it isn't really that soon! If it comes out in november or december (like most games) that is a long time and creed did the same exact thing last year with AC2 and ACB.

Esco, I think they're referring to some of the Ubi people who left for THQ, including Patrice Désilets. I'm not necessarily in agreement that future installments will suffer - but I'm guessing that's what they were referring to.

I might have exaggerated with "original team" due to lousy memory, seems it's 'just' key members. I read that at least some of them were on AC, but couldn't find the article.

I just hope they bring everyback from Brotherhood. The Characters, could you imagine not playing with these awesome characters again? Abilities, all the awesome and useful ones there are, and you can't use them anymore? All the epic modes there are, all gone? Wanted, Assassinate, Manhunt etc...

This is just what I fear the most about the MP. I don't want to see everything being forgotten. How would I play the game without the Footpad and my poison? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/sadeyes.gif

Looks like another MP installment..hopefully with some lessons learned incorporated!

<span class="ev_code_RED">"Revelations also brings back the multiplayer experience first introduced in Assassin's Creed Brotherhood with "more modes, more maps and more characters" according to the official announcement. "</span>

persiateddy95
05-05-2011, 11:48 AM
I sure hope they still keep the modes there are now, at least Wanted, Assassinate and Manhunt since they're my favourite modes. I also hope they keep the characters, at least the non-DLCs ones. I would be very sad if I couldn't play with some of them anymore... That's just my concern.

CrazyShrapnel
05-05-2011, 11:50 AM
Ezio again? Altair again? They're starting to sound like they're running out of ideas. Multiplayer wise they have a lot to improve on (Matchmaking, disconnects, server booting, countless other regular annoyances) before I give it much attention. This seems pretty soon too.

AC 2.75 anyone?

persiateddy95
05-05-2011, 11:55 AM
They just don't want to stop releasing AC games before AC3 in 2012. They made a good choice not to release AC3 this year, since it makes much more sense for it to be released in 2012.

I think Brotherhood and Revelations are just games with MPs to keep us entertained until then. That might mean they won't make any MP in AC3.

Archybad
05-05-2011, 12:02 PM
Is it just me or does anyone else not like Ezio anymore? He was good in the first as an up and coming assassin, learning from his Uncle and attempting to avenge his family etc. but he just didn't interest me in brotherhood.

And what was the point in training up new assassins if they were just going to use Ezio again anyway. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/51.gif

Hopefully they won't ruin Altair for me as well.......

I am seriously looking forward to the MP though, it's the most addicting thing I've ever played (as long as it's like this one). http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

I wonder if the PC version will be delayed compared to the console versions like it was with Brotherhood.

I'd prefer the PC version as I got a high end gaming PC and I'm just used to the keyboard/mouse input for this kind of games - I usually only buy games for my PS3 which are exclusively released for the console.

At least you'll probably get a free DLC with it, one that adds singleplayer missions.

Please, you have to be joking.

It seems Ubi are still having a hard time putting the old POP to rest.

So what you're saying is all games Ubi makes are going to be similar, waving 'hello' at each other?

If i want to play POP, i'll pull out the disc.

If i want to play AC, then i'll put out that disc, and i except a totally different game.

Otherwise, you may as well call it "Prince of Animus", in which case, let me know, because i don't want anything to do with it.

And don't scam your customers who think they are actually buying a different game.

Heck, by that way of thinking, why overwork yourself, just make one mega game, if everything you do is going to turn out the same.

I'm sorry to sound harsh, and please don't think i hate POP, because I have all 3.
I liked POP and i liked AC. But i liked them for different reasons.

It will be Ezio, Altair, and Desmond. and Ezio is over 50 in Constantinople.

Edit - there are a few sites you can go to now that discuss some of the new features and different things in AC:R
