What if we see Connor travel to England? More specifically, London? That'd just make the game 4654135489699974567x more amazing, and it's pretty amazing already!


woahhh I haven't been on in foreverrr! I still check in though;)

well I have family over in England, and have visited a couple times... but that whole area, I just love it. I'd love to move over there one day, and having London in the game would be great lol

It would be cool. I still think it would be even better to have london and paris as two major cities in next year's game during the French Revolution. One last hoorah! with Connor before the next Gen concoles

Yes, but I'm sure that the atmosphere will be A LOT different. Added on to some different landmarks, and such.

Idk, just doesn't seem possible, maybe the next AC will be in London.

I wouldn't really like it. I also don't see the logic of a native american who is fighting in the revolution somehow to take a detour all the way to London by boat (which would take ages and could be very dangerous) unless it's for a very important reason (Piece of eden for example).

From a game standpoint it also doesn't really make sense, we already have 2 major cities and a huge area inbetween + other parts Connor will visit + the part of the sea we can sail on (and people have also been saying Mexico will be more than just the DLC mission) + the areas Desmond will go too which might be a full city too for all we know . Adding another complete city would be too much (maybe like in AC2 where you had a very limited section of Rome near the end though).

That said I don't want to discourage you or anything and it would be pretty cool if it was in, I just don't think it's likely and don't really see the logic for it to happen.

I would like AC3 to end in Paris like AC2 ended in Rome but this time with the Peace Treaty being signed. It could then lead into the next game quite nicely

Native Americans had been travelling back and forth across the Atlantic to London before the Pilgrims landed in the 'New World'.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Squanto


Tisquantum (better known as Squanto) (c. 1580s – November 1622) was a Patuxet (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Patuxet_tribe). [...] Some local friars discovered what Hunt was attempting and took the remaining Native Americans — Tisquantum included — in order to instruct them in the Christian faith.[2] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Squanto#cite_note-1) Tisquantum convinced the friars to let him try to return home. He managed to get to London, where he lived with, and worked for a few years with John Slany (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Slany), a shipbuilder. Slany apparently taught Tisquantum more English. Slany took Tisquantum with him when he sailed to Cuper's Cove (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cuper%27s_Cove,_Newfoundland), Newfoundland (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Newfoundland_%28island%29).[3] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Squanto#cite_note-2) To get to New England (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_England), Tisquantum tried to take part in an expedition to that part of the North American east coast. When that plan fell through, he returned to England in 1618.[4] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Squanto#cite_note-Kinnicutt-3) At last in 1619 Tisquantum returned to his homeland aboard John Smith’s ship, having joined an exploratory expedition along the New England coast, led by Captain Thomas Dermer (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thomas_Dermer).

While plausible, I don't know if I'd like that to happen in a game. The player is already the fish-out-of-water in every historical situation in which we get to wander, but to have the player's vehicle character be also removed from that society would be a mistake, I think. I would like to experience historical England via a character who is already part of that landscape and knows it well, just as Connor is directly part of his society.

If they were to allow you to go to london I imagine it will be like the rome mission in AC2. Where you are given small location to move around in, with London as a backdrop image. It could be feasable to go there, as England was meant to be full to the brim with templars at this time, right? If you were to go I imagine it would probably be the house of parliament you go to, that place is FULL of corrupt people :p

No problem!

QI is the standard 30-minute edition, and then QI XL is the extended one which is shown a day or two later (with an extra 15 minutes).

A cousin that not even desmond know about. Maybe he also have high concentration of TWCB DNA because some the ancestors are the same and other's might also be hybrids but from the other part of the family.

Desmond would go for him in the start of the next Ac (and we play as the desmond's cousin) and lead us through another exceptional journey writted by Corey :D

I'm surprised nobody mentioned the fact that Haytham Kenway came from London. I think Connor could definitely end up there at some point, although probably not the entire city. But I'm 100% convinced he's at least going to Paris. That clue at the end of Brotherhood (Phrygian Cap and Masonic Eye) is too perfect to ignore.

Supposedly Connor is going to Philidelphia at some point in the game which I believe will be similar to the limited Rome from ACII.

No, New York at least will rather resemble Dutch cities than English ones. Boston might share some architecture with London though.

Keep in mind though that many buildings from modern-day London were built or extremely modified in middle or late 19th century, including the Palace of Westminster (where Big Ben is located), the Tower Bridge or the Tower of London (the medieval-looking parts are actually not medieval). A game in London should thus rather be set during the British Empire.

Also, that Sherlock Holmes game looks awesome, is it free-roaming?

In fact Phrygian Cap and Masonic Eye also appear in the American Revolution.

At the time of Brotherhood they all thought the French Revolution, not the American one.
