Your character the great-great-great grandson of connor is Desmonds great grandfather. Born in 1894 he grew on the streets of new york at the turn of the century ( lots of new inventions). WW1 starts and his father is killed. In 1919 when the war ends he is 25. (hes a city kid kinda like Ezio) So in New York during prohibition the Mafia really started gaining power. Most of the politicians are corrupt. (lots of assassinations) Anyway your character joins the NYPD and finds some politician making a deal with a mobster they find him and he is nearly killed and kicked out of police... (coruption runs reaaaaally deep) So he is left in a ditch bleading and is saved by the assassins. he didnt know of the Assassins and you go on to kill alot of mobsters and corrupt politicians... Then others the great depression and WW2 idk maybe ill write a fan-fic

I think it would be better in Chicago not New York. Cool idea though.

Its too Modern for me, I wouldn't like it... after the 1900's if you dress like an assassin with robes in new york you would be easily noticed and if you dress differently players wouldn't feel like they are an Assassin.

I would still feel like an assassin. Getting really sick of the assassins' robes now. If the only thing getting in the way of certain eras is some clothes, then the clothes have to go - not the setting. The assassin is not Spiderman.

It's ridiculous to think that these characters have to be in the same costume for all of history. The game will become a parody of itself if you're always in hooded robes, diving into haystacks, and having cliffhangers involving PoEs and TWCB.

i would rather have either victorian london or tudor london. sorry, but i really don't like your idea much, the guns were too good.

P.S. this thread will probably be locked, like the last few ones on possible AC4 locations

I agree with the France or England people. Those two places are probably the best for AC4. I can see it though. The 20s were a very cool time period.

I disagree I have to say that AC4 should be set in imperial russia 1796 when the templar, paul I of russia, was being a tyrant. he got assassinated in 1801. it would be a good story.

Punkyskunk I really like your idea, but just not for a game. It's too modern. Another comic book similar to The Fall would be a great way to tell this story.

yeah, that would work, its basically just the gameplay that wouldn't be good for an AC game, but the story could still be good

He wouldn't need robes. In fact, I assume Desmond will finally pull his hood up to do some killing in his white hoodie and stone washed jeans.

Should be awesome.

Great grandfather? Desmond's dad was born in 1948, remember? Anyway, I think AC3 should end the series for the current console generation and reboot the game when the next generations comes out (PS4, 720, Etc.) and call it "The Assassin's Creed" and make a setting a cross between Renaissance and the British Colonization of America (late 1500s - early 1600s) in England. There are some good historical events that could be featured in it, such as "The Gunpowder Plot" where Robert Catesby tried to *ASSASSINATE* King James I.

AC4 should be set in 1936 - Spanish civil war. There was so much chaos going on, as to who would be taking power over the Spanish government. You had Anarchists, the Trotskyists, the Marxists, Freemasons, and some other Spanish republic and Spanish Democratic party trying to secure power....It could have been chaos created be the Assassins of Spain. >_>

Guy faulks :). Also if the great grand was born in 1894 than he would be 46 so it would work

Well you've gotta give credit to Desmond. The guys been through a lot hahah. I for one think it would be very interesting to have an AC game in an ancient time period. Too bad Rome was already in a game, because the Roman Empire would be an awesome setting. My number one pick is Edwardian or Victorian England.

Oh c'mon a lot? he has been chilling watching Desmond History Channel for 2 months straight. Then he ate once in 2 months. He has not showered(minus the sewer bath). He tried making a racist joke that ended up in an EPIC FAIL with every one like, ''I prefer shaun's jerky attitude" attitude towards him. He got knocked out by a flying piece of Eden(right before he Fell, you have to pause the video or the game or something). Then he met his cousin that died, but somehow got inside his head along with the animus. Then his dad found him like TAG YOUR IT ! >_>.You're right he has been through a lot. lmao XD

everyone should quit concerning themselves on where AC4 will be set and ask why, what's going to be so important that the use of the Animus will rise again, or are they going to use the Animus at all? i think it will be pretty lame if they tack on some crappy cliffhanger at the end of AC3 to keep the franchise going so they can keep the use of the Animus in the series. i mean Desmond's the "Chosen One", who could be more important than him (other than the person he's linked to).

i think Ubisoft should do one-shot games based on the Great Assassin's in Ezio's sanctuary in Italy instead of trying to come up with a whole new "The World's Going to End!!!!!" scenario.

Actually Desmond is not ​the "chosen one" evidence is after the seveth (I think) sequence. At animus island Shaun asks William if Desmond is the chosen one, the one to take out the templar order, and William replies "no".

So we, atleast, have a new main character that is to be the one that destroys the templars.

I'm afraid not...
@Jamison: It doesn't say that Desmond isn't the chosen one but that his father isnt sure about it. Also it is possible that Bill lied because he dont't want his son to be the chosen one because there are legends who say terrible things will happen to the chosen one.
So think off the maxim: Nothing is true. Everything is permitted.

Fair enough. Hopefully we will get more information in ACIII.

the countryside of Burma is mostly rainforest, apart from some hilly areas with rice paddies on, most villages in the country are tightly packed and are on stilts, there are lots of trains that pass through these rural areas, some of these trains go to the tops of very high mountains, some higher than Ben Nevis.

so what do you think?
