...for an assassins creed game, what would you choose? It doesn't have to fit in with the current storyline.

I think I'd go for London during the English Civil War. Loads of political disputes and armed conflicts going on that were changing the country. A perfect place for an assassin http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Hi, Lozza, welcome to the Forum!
I would pick ancient Greece, or Rome, definitely. Lots of conspiracies, lots of wicked man to assassinate and the world greatest thinkers and scholars to help you out. Not to mention amazing mythology, art and architecture that would make the game sets breathtaking!

Yeah ancient rome would be great too.

the French revolution, everything urs had but much better architecture, mystery and tons of better stuff, it would be like combining the rennaisance with the English civil war, and if not that then the Sctottish revolution when thy were fighting England during Braveheart's time, that would be awesome!

That’s a great idea as well! “Freedom”! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
Or, if they wanted to go back to the Middle Ages (which I doubt, but still…), the game could be set during Prince John’s time in power in England. It would be nice to have Robin Hood helping you!
But I still like Ancient Greece better! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

What about an Asian city ? Most cities people suggest are all Western. I think Beijing in 19th century would be an intersting city. At that time 8 Western countries invaded China which was under the rule of the Qing dynasty; Boxer Rebellions ...

I reckon AC3 might be set in France. There was a rumour at one point that AC2 was going to be set during the French Revolution.

Lol yeah, hanging out with Robin Hood would be pretty cool.

I just think that it would go ninja if we did that, here in the western ones it doesn't become like Tenchu or something like that, I don't want to see an assassin in the Asian cities, too ninjaey, and at Lozza they said there were thinking about it so ya it might be a{n} {awesome} setpoint for the third

1888 London, back then all the streets and everything were narrow allowing for a large free runnign playground and would also allow the incorperationg of thinks like jack the ripper and since they dont exactly always tell the truth with the story they could bring sherlock holmes into it if wanted.

Chad, 2132 AD. After a large industrial revolution, the Dark Continent is under the control of a handful of very powerful and corrupt corporations. One of these companies has obtained a Piece of Eden. It is time to get it back.

The Assassin could wear a long cape, hide inside carriages… Awesome idea, you’ve got my vote! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/clap.gif

wow ,bleeding effect certainly is working on you. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/34.gif

Well there was something going around about the storyline (ancestorwise) going back BEFORE AC1.(i dunno if it's true) I like the idea of ancient Greece/Rome, or possibly Byzantium (Greece/Turkey) the 100 years war with like Joan of Arc or something.

I dunno. I can't even start to think untill I see what happens in AC2

Thank you.

For the poster above me saying that it wou;d go ninjaey ... Well, it's China, and China didn't have ninjas.

I think ACIII should set in Asia, why ?
Because that would be more refreshing than any other Western countires. Rome, France ... would feel pretty similar to ACII setting. I want something completely new.

19th century China is full of conflicts Qing dysnasty vs Western countries vs Boxer Rebels ; and Chinese Revolutionaries vs the Qing Dynasty ... There were a lot of corrupted people to assassinate.

I know they didn't have ninjas, but it would still fell like it in my opinion, I've played enough asian country games and I'm starving for some set in the west, and the idea of an Ancestor of Ezio's going there doesn't make sense to me, back then everyone would be wanting to go WEST, including the templars, so naturally Ezio and his family would follow them and probably stay there until around desmond's time, maybe one more move before Desmond's time but definitely not to Asia

I dont think Asia would be that great a place to use as the cities dont realy lend them self to the style of game play, they same as the person above who mentiond the english scottish war as it was mainly in the border reigons that at the time was majorly country side so wouldnt work well with the free run system due to lack of built up areas.

Samurai = Japanese warriors.
Ninja = Japanese Assassins.

You haven't mentioned anything Chinese yet.
