View Full Version : What's a place you hope Assassin's Creed DOESN'T go to?

One of my favourite features in these games is the liveability and exoticness of the locations. I feel like I'm really experiencing another culture.

Well, everytime I check out an Assassin's Creed forum everyone's always talking about where the next game should be set (same old options, Japan, Russia etc)

Well, for a twist how about talking about a place you hope an Assassin's Creed sequel WON'T go to?

Here's mine. France. Just couldn't do it. Not interested at all. Went to Paris for a week, will never go again.

I would love it to be in France. Perfect place seeing as Jupiter's Temple is located underneath Notre Dame Cathedral. And I think we all know the next one is in France. Wouldn't mind it being in Japan either.

The place I don't want it to be is a modern day setting with Desmond (or anybody else for that matter).

Japan or anything Asia. Im not racist or anything but that locale is overused in games. And while I'm at it, America or any modern day setting would be bland too.

France would be awesome! Why not? Paris is an awesome city, and its like taken straight out of an AC game. I could envision what path I would use to climb the towers there easily http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_razz.gif

I don't think I would like an asian setting, like Japan or Mongolia. But it is a logical place to go, and I wont say that they can't do it well, so I'll reserve my judgment until then =)

Anywhere in East Asia (excluding Southeast Asia), second or first world war Europe and I'd probably not like Russia much either, though I'm not entirely sure about that one.

Where did we hear this?


And for me, probably anything close to modern days to do with high-powered guns i.e. one of the World Wars, and I don't mind Asia, just not 100% sure about it...

And same with France, I don't mind too much. I'm worried it would feel a lot like Italy though with all of the Cathedrals and stuff.

Those answers are terrible. And Australia has a brilliant setting I wouldn't mind an AC game there. If it was to go there how about letting Australian's do the voice acting simply because voice actors just fail at an Australian accent.

Anything modern would be a no no for me I like the whole idea of visiting the past. I have a feeling that the whole Desmond part may turn out like Splinter Cell.

Hello evry1 this is ACdork12 and heres what i have to say i agree with the first guy that commented i so agree, I love the exotic locations but ACR is going to be going back to Masyaf castle where Al Mualim aka lunatic was assassinated by Altair aka awesome Ezio is trying to find the library under Masyaf castle, Altair wrote all the books and info and when he goes there he is again greeted by the crusaders so technically it is a little little bit like the first one except Ezio is a little more skilled if you want judge that comment evry1 has an opinion and i am not here to stop them from being said and if you want some more awesome info go to youtube and type in Assassins Creed: revelations E3 continued the video i swear is awesome and keep watching till the end because if you notice the time has been extended and during it there is an interesting letter from Ezio to Claudia

I really wouldn't like it to be set in.. I don't know, actually. Wherever they set it, I'm sure it will be a historically eventful time period, and eventful periods didn't happen in uninteresting lands, so it doesn't matter. :P

Europe would be good, but I think we got enough of it in Italy. The Middle East though is such an interesting setting that I would accept it in another AC game. Honestly, anywhere in or near America is unacceptable. It's just not a continent for AC. Same for Australia. Asia and Africa though would be great http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Feudal Japan. It'd turn Assassin's Creed to yet another ninja game, and the series takes pride on being original, not least when it comes to settings.

Same goes for second World War locations. No.

Otherwise, I'd be intrigued wherever they decide to go, as long as the level of historical edutainment stays as high as in II and Brotherhood.

Or the first World War. Or any futuristic/modern setings.
I'd rather not have an AC game set in the Orient. Not because of any disparity (I've lived in China for a year and it's a lovely country with lovely people), but simply because the Orient in videogames is cliched and hackneyed. Russia would be cool, perhaps ancient India.

France, England, Revolutionary America would all be interesting places, too.

Personally, I'd like to see an Aztec or Inca assassin. There's so much mystery behind those peoples (their cultures, architecture, and religions), it would be a very interesting place and time period to build an AC-sized conspiracy theory around.

I kind of agree just because of the total lack of real knowledge about these areas pre 15th century. One of my favorite things about AC is the accuracy of the cities at the time which I realize may not always be 100% but that is what scares me the most about ancient settings or especially ancient america.

I would like you to name a single recent game that contains a realistic portrayal of Asian history, and hyper-detailed recreations of Asian cities.

As far as I know, most "asian styled" games are really manga or Anime styled.

And Manga and Anime is about as concerned with a realistic portrayal of Asian culture and history and environments as James Bond is with a realistic portrayal of Espionage.

As far as I know, most "asian styled" games are really manga or Anime styled.

And Manga and Anime is about as concerned with a realistic portrayal of Asian culture and history and environments as James Bond is with a realistic portrayal of Espionage.

That's not really the point. Regardless of historical accuracy or anything of the sort, there have been so many games and tv shows set in those regions that the small bits and pieces that were historically accurate are more than enough to make us feel the setting is overused, even for an AC game.

To each their own I suppose, though I wouldn't mind a completely new setting myself, I'm just not going to hate on the idea of Japan as a setting.

There would be one major issue with Japan as a setting though. It's something the AC team really, really, really, absolutely, totally need to work on. Vegetation. vegetation in the AC games so far has been absolutely deplorable. For me the setting of Feudal Japan wouldn't be well done without great vegetation.

A way I can explain it is if anyone has seen The Last Samurai. What really makes the setting for me, besides the wonderful architecture and clothing style, is the beautiful vegetation. The tree with the pink blossoms (don't know what kind) with the leaves floating around in the air and all of the lush green vegetation around it, it's just wonderful and I'm not convinced they would portray that type of enviroment well.

You're right, that would probably be a huge problem. I'm not sure if the architecture'd work well either. I don't think East Asia style buildings would work well with the freerunning in AC.

Ok, then list your 3 examples of games that do a realistic take on Asian history of any kind.

Also, Kingdom of Heaven, any Robin Hood movie ever, for movies.

Thats a point, but i cant really see the series going back in times before the last two games, i mean, i have elements of my family that were alive during the 1800's but i have family that go as far back as about 1500 in germany (from what ive gathered from conversations with my family) im mostly english though so i cant really say that ive had experienced with asian ancestors.. even though i probably had some at one point in 12 million BC or something stupid like that, bare in mind, we all have elements of ape in us from before humans existed... so i guess i was kinda wrong in that post, but baring in mind the next game will most probably be set in the 1700s-1900s zone and you would be able to tell if there was asian in desmond...

I believe Moscow is not the only city that lay claim to that nickname.

Why?

Well Moscow was still the most popular city to lay claim to the name, so your point still stands.

So.. spin-off or main game?

I personally wouldn't mind Desmond playing a Russian Assassin, but it might lie to close to 'The Fall' and 'The Chain'.

And darn it. I get 1000 posts and you get 2000. I need to double my posting regime! &gt;http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

You'll never beat me! D:

Anyways, I think either kind of game would work. I'm still not sure if I'd like it, though I don't really know enough about Russia to be certain. Maybe I should ask my little brother what he thinks. He went to Russia about a year ago.

Chicago. I could deal with most anything else (yeah, even Japan), but Chicago? Not for me.

Places I hope Assassin's Creed doesn't go:
Australia = One of the worst Settings I could think of. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/disagree.gif
The Wild West
Gotham City
Deserted Space Station inhabited with corpse reanimating Templar aliens.

I would rather go to somewhere other than Europe as well, somewhere unique. </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

Those answers are terrible. And Australia has a brilliant setting I wouldn't mind an AC game there. If it was to go there how about letting Australian's do the voice acting simply because voice actors just fail at an Australian accent.

Anything modern would be a no no for me I like the whole idea of visiting the past. I have a feeling that the whole Desmond part may turn out like Splinter Cell. </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

And I assume you don't live in Australia or know extensive Australia History? Because if you do, you should know that a Assassin's Creed game based on large historic events, political conflicts, assassinations and melee weapon based combat in Australia would not work....at all..... </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

I live in Australia you fool. You obviously have no idea what you are talking about,An idea I thought is maybe a temple of some sorts is underneath one of the many deserts in Australia, or under the Great Barrier Reef. It can work it just needs some decent thought. </div></BLOCKQUOTE>
You fool? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blink.gif
Um ok..I live in Australia as well and I obviously do know what I am talking about when you're only argument for a Assassin's Creed game being set in Australia is: There might be a temple under a desert there herp derp. I was obviously talking about an entire game set there, which (if following the other series examples of plots) would not work at all.
You maybe need to calm down a bit when reacting to game forum posts. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/shady.gif

Does no-one likes the prospect of AC in Egypt?

I suspect location would largely be determined by the event (Third Crusade, Pazzi Conspiracy, Rise of the Borgia's, height of the Ottoman Empire etc) rather than just picking a random new place from the globe.

On topic, I'd be happy with anywhere if its an interesting historical period/setting. But I would really dislike anything in an modernish era.

I would prefer they keep the essence of the game as hidden blades, swords and hand to hand combat and not head for a time period where firearms are too prevalent. Because wouldn't a modern AC with guns simply make it GTA with a decent story? It would take away the entire USP of AC if they lost the "you can run around a real historical city" stuff.

My all seeing eye of editing genius must not be working today but nevermind, I didn't mean to cause any kind of argument in the first place. I replied before I saw your post after that one as well.

On Topic I thought that Ubisoft had shown a rather cool concept art of an Egyptian Assassin in white robes. So it's possible.

Never North America (As a main Assassin setting), please. Prime locations I'm against being:
- New York
- Washington (Unless Desmond is lead there, but by no means the main setting).

America has been done to death, though I don't doubt that Ubi will be capable of fufilling it's rich history, it just wasn't that interesting until not-so-many centuries ago.

I must agree. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

Although I'm still really in the want of Victorian London and the likes popping up. We saw examples through the Assassin Recruit missions how Templars struggle to place their grasp on England. Though I can't truly complain where they'll go, thus far everything has been rich and they're doing a spectacular job.

Though I must add, -a lot- of people are against Modern Day, I do hope these people realise that it no doubt will be the focus of ACIII - It's coming and I too, must express by concern for the situation. You can't be running around with a slow hidden gun when Templars will have machine guns and the likes. I don't want it to become a 3rd Person Shooter, but I don't want it to be illogical. (Bare in mind however Templars are teaching people in the animi to fight like the Templar-aligned Agents did back in the day).

I'm certian Ubi will pull it off however. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif
