What about for one of the AC games Desmond's ancestor is a Wild West Cowboy? Have some of the heads of the Assassins Guild or Templar orders be Billy the Kid, or Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, Jesse James or any one else I think a Wild West Assassin would be crazy awesome! What do you guys think?

The experience to me would seem kind of ....off?

Point being a cast of federal templars would come into play.Riding a horse point a to b.A lot of fans want to stray from guns so thats another no no.

All in all I just get that kind of experience playing Red dead redemption.Just no hiddenblade.

I saw the title and popped in simply to say Red Dead Redemption but V-rex beat me to it. If you haven't played RDR I recommend it.

AC is known for it's parkor and climbing. Towns were more like settlements in the late 1800s, and consisted of two, maybe three story buildings. This isn't much for climbing.

Guns played heavily in the west, and this is something Assassin's probably won't include as it's main weapon in any game.

Having an outlaw as an assassin seems counter intuitive, because they live by different creeds. While it might be interesting to see an Assassin in this time period, it just doesn't seem plausible.

Considering Desmond grew up on an assassin compound I would have to say that there were assassin's during wild west time period. I doubt the assassin's took a century off just because they didn't like guns and didn't have tall buildings to climb. In fact I think the opposite is true. If using stealth, a gun makes assassinating someone much easier, which goes along with what Altair said in the codex about using poison imo. Also there were cities with tall buildings during this time period. Another thing to note, I think the wild west would have been an important time for the order to be active.

Now, whether or not this would make a good AC game is, of course, another question entirely.

Honestly, I dont like the idea of any game in an era where guns were a norm. I would rather not see the Wild West.

I think it's a great idea, i love red dead redemption and i still love playing the multiplayer, maybe the name could be Assassin's creed: Redemption http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_razz.gif

Ah, no. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/88.gif

Leave the Wild West to that game (RDR), and its sequals.

It just wouldn't fit an Assassin's Creed game...

Just a bad idea in general. I can see it now. The new outfit will be a sleeveless version in the form of a vest because anyone caught wearing the typical AC outfit will look like someone to take a shot at considering how out of place it would be (wish someone would make a picture of how silly it could be).
Nope...bad idea.....movin on....

Yeah of course there would have been assassins there at the time but it would just not make for a great AC game at all. We should probably leave that to the super talented people at rockstar games.
