So because I'm bored I started thinking about ways this new installment of Assassin's Creed may redo or add on to old features.

Water Stalking zones~
In Ac3 we were introduced to stalking zone in tall grass and we know it will return in Ac4, but perhaps they'll add stalk zones when in water since know they'll be underwater exploration it's not a huge leap to think the blow pipe Edward has may allow him to stay submerged (used as a snorkel) while underwater and grab people near the waters edge for a stealth kill much like the stalk kill and the hay-bale kill.

Floating body distraction~
As in previous installment a dead body can cause distraction. Perhaps to elaborate on this system you can toss a body in water and if it's a river the body will be dragged downwards grabbing the guards attention and they'll chase after it to fish it out of the water.

Social Stealth change~
We see in the trailer upon killing the templar Edward grabs the presumed prostitute and uses her as a form of cover. Perhaps we'll see a blend of previous AC social stealth mixed with Ac3's more realistic (if not frustrating) form of social stealth. By walking between any 2 people forcing commoners, patrons, and prostitutes in a sort of kidnapping way to make him not stand out, perhaps some may be willing accomplishes or crew or drunkards who simply go along with him. The people will stay with him providing a social stealth field like in pre-AC3 fashion. While still allowing realistic crowds and social actions.

You guys have ideas?

We see something added every Assassins Creed
AC 2 had actual cut scenes LOL and of course, a usable Hidden Gun and the ability to swim. and courtesants
AC Brotherhood had factions and buildings you could buy and landmarks you could repair, and clubs you could fight in and what not
AC Revelation had introduced crafting and Tower Defense
AC 3 Had organicness, you could climb anything you would think you should be able to, hunting, plant stealth, board games, and ship battles
AC 4 will have free aiming, dual weapons and bringing back everything the past games brought to the table minus tower defense (i hope) and repairing landmarks.. wouldnt mind i they killed off crafting too...But as far as the next new thing like ACRs Tower Defense and AC 3s Ship battles I think may just be the underwater world...
I was surprised with ship battles in ac 3..so we may get a surprize in ac 4 too..other than just adding onto what we already have..i dont think we will see anything new besides underwater worlds

It'd be cool if we could grab enemies stealthily and put a flintlock to their head. Thoughts?

possible, would be neat to have him tell other guards on patrols to go search other places. Dispatch him with a pistol whip for stealth or hidden blade or simply pull the trigger. the problem is they would need to add an actual grab like 1c-acr and not the grab only when firing lines appear.

Two words: Random Events

It doesn't have to be complicated ones either.

-Executions to stop
-fellow pirates to rescue from the gallows
-easedrops to gather info for gold or to learn of a location of buried treasure
-people to stalk and eventually rob
-random battles between the british/french/spanish where we can decide who to side with or take down both sides or ignore entirely
-random assassination contracts but keeping it diverse. for example having to murder someone at a bar. We can either start a bar fight to kill that person, poison them while distracting them, or wait for them to leave the pub and kill them in the dark.
-A bounty system where we are randomly attacked for the crimes we have committed as Edward

Besides that:
-An enhanced and improved fort system would be awesome
-bring back the 6 detailed assassin recruits where we get a special skill with each one. Especially the one where we act as a prisoner to sneak into certain areas
-Awesome outfits. One with a cape. another with a tricorne hat
-the ability to swing on ropes like in the trailer
-the ability to hang people again with something similar to the rope dart
-the ability to drag bodies off as soon as you assassinate the person instead of throwing them over your shoulder
-A way to toggle the hood on and off
-the ability to light things on fire to distract guards or kill people

Any things AC4 will bring... Can't really think of any tbh. I think its going to be basically a reskin, I don't see what they can add thats worthy of an "OMG THATS AWESOME"

Maybe the devs will be really creative & Edward will be able to turn into an Animus Shark !! :rolleyes: ............ but i'd rather they didn't go there .


( i never actually found any real "OMG that's awesome" moments in AC-3 )

I would like it more when they improve a lot instead of new things
- better combat
-more refined stealth with a lot better AI
- fix horses if there are in ac4!
-more variety in naval combat
-longer-more varied-and non lineair side missions

These are all practically givens since the game focus has shifted a bit and they've dont these things previously with new installments.

What about "freedom" that is being promised? Does anyone have any thoughts on if they'll make the full synch requirements more generalist or contextual?
I don't see how they could use the optional objective full synch as shown while still retaining the freedom seen in Ac1 and to an extent in Ac2.

Though god knows I after JUST starting Brotherhood once more (about 5th replaying) after completing the 1st & 2nd I feel constrained and frustrated.
