So after the amazing game that is Black Flag, the bar was set real high for this year's AC. Honestly I am disappointed.

AC4 had one of the best settings in any of the AC games and it was so vastly different from anything before it. That is what I loved about AC, the varying environments. But it is going to be hard for them to make this feel different from AC2, brotherhood and rev.

I was hoping for a medieval Britain , Russia, Germany, or industry revolution setting. But they have seem to have returned to something wwhich already looks and feels very reminiscent of the Ezio games.

I will keep watching this but so far I'm not too impressed.

Also if it is true that they are releasing two separate AC games this year then that SUCKS. Way to milk the franchise even more and gouge money from AC fans. Now I am going to have to buy and play two AC games. One a year has been enough thank you. I hope Comet is good.

No one is making you buy the games. Vote with your wallet. Also, if you're worried that the setting will feel too much like Renaissance Italy, then look at the new trailer and see for yourself.

So. You are concluding what the game will look like after a 30s teaser. Okay.

03-22-2014, 03:03 AM
you come off as fairly ignorant... maybe you should go back to the ezio games cause you seem to have forgotten how the settings really are.. If anything havana in ac4 was made to be somewhat similar to ezio games.

also maybe watch some documentaries and do some research on the french revolution.



also if your not impressed by now, thats fine, youre not suppsoed to. Ubisoft hasnt REALLY done their proper announcment/unveiling of it yet. we know nothing besides the setting really, maybe it has the ebst gameplayer ever... we dont know..

I have to admit that every time someone says that all European countries look the same I feel like performing violent acts, I don't know if it's because of some sort of European "pride", or because we Europeans all secretly hate each other and the idea of being compared to other Euro country is instinctively unacceptable, or if it's because of the ignorance of it, or maybe a combination of everything.

I really agree with you, vecino :P

However I do understand that an East asian setting, is needed......

Yeah, it's not similar IMO. It has some architectural similarities, but that's all.

1. Brotherhood => Rome - completely different.
2. Revelations => Constantinople => much more exotic and less European
3. Venice + Florence => Similarities, but COMPLETELY different time

France is it's own thing, especially with the history of the French Revolution.

Also: Do you see a pattern there (it is only intercepted once with Brotherhood, which was originally supposed to be part of AC2 as far as I know, which would explain that interception):

AC 1 => Arabic, rather exotic setting, lots of mystery and atmosphere, but with a little bit European as well (Acre for example)
AC2 => Mediterranean, typical European architecture, mild climate
ACB => Same as AC2
ACR => Rather exotic location again, half European, half Asian
AC3 => Mostly looking European, but more rural and frontier feeling. Not European setting, but mild climate as well (cold winters, rather warm summers
AC4 => Tropical, mostly not-European (though Havanna and Kingston show the signs of European architecture and influences, exotic
AC(5)Unity => European Classic again, but again different.

ALL I say here is that there is a rough pattern to create diversity in terms of locations. I know, they haven't shown totally Asian, African or Australian settings yet, but I think that is mainly because they wanted to be solid and established as a series before getting more experimental (AC3 and AC4 being their first "experiments").

But, one thing which is also to mention, in the end there ARE not so many DIFFERENT architectures and climates that do NOT feel similar to another setting of AC.
Sure, they still have 1 or 2 locations which would be unique. But think about it, after that there is only same old, same old, because they actually used a lot of environments, climates, architectural styles and cultures already that might seem similar to future titles.

So in the end I think they'll try to keep it fresh by changing between more traditional (European), mild climate locations and more extreme, exotic (Asian, American,) locations.
To keep it at least partially fresh every year.

What this basically means for you? If you like settings like the AC4, ACR and AC1 one, then you'll get your setting probably either next year or with Assassins Creed: Comet.

I don't know, I actually LIKE all European countries and cultures. What world am I living in? Are Europeans really so hostile? Here in Germany we really like Italy, France, England, Spain, etc. I don't know what the problem is where you come from. I don't hate other Europeans.... I though Europe grew together a little bit in the past years....

I think what he meant by the "secretly hate eachother" is more the friendly rivalry jokes and stereotypes and unwillingness to compare their country to others. Take for example the fact that Frenchmen have the stereotype of being stuck up, Germans of being up tight and strict, Spanish of being lazy, British of being posh, and so on. Of course none of these are true but created by other nations to make fun of the others, theres also the intese soccer(I guess you guys call it football) rivalries and such. Its not really a hatred Europe generally gets along these days its just a rivalry thing I think more or less.

Sure, but IMO that is more to make fun of each other. Everyone has a stereotype, in that regard we are all even. So IMO it's just a friendly banter and rivalry...
But we are Europeans, rivalry and nationalism are in our blood :D

Exactly we here in the US have a similar friendly joking and pride based on our home states. Like Californians are hippies, New Jersey is all loud Italians, Alabama racists, Louisiana Cajuns and Voodoo, Pennsylvania Amish-Dutch, Colorado Pot heads, Texas Cowboys, so on and so forth we make fun of each other all the time it can get to a point where it seems brutal but when something happens to one of us we are ready to help them and fight for them. I feel European Countries have the same dynamic toward each other.

As a Parisian, I agree :D

But it's okay that people have different opinions.

What I don't tolerate is ignorant opinions like saying all European countries look the same or people like Oliacr who say that it looks boring or it will be too much like ACIII.

Agreed. Though I will get new PC hardware :D It's about time for me. Watch Dogs, AC:Unity, Batman Arkham Knight, The Division, Metal Gear (hopefully on PC later on), etc.
Lots of stuff to play and my hardware is stone old. Was barely able to play AC4.

As for Paris. Yeah, I like the setting, even if I think an Asian one is long due.

My dream setting is Ancient Rome in the 3rd century AD. It would be (historically) the biggest city ever in an Assassin's Creed game and the richest. So many monuments, so much glory! But considering we had Rome in a worse time period (for the city), I'm not very confident we will ever see this.

That said, Paris is obviously a fantastic choice, it won't be quite her prime yet, the Effeil Tower for example would be built for another 100 years, but the French Revolution is definitely a great setting for the series. I wonder if they fallow the napoleonic wars too.

I really don't see what London would have to offer in the French Revolution it would seem to me as forcing that city in just because of fan requests rather than for any particular good reason. I think the London rumor(if its even true which I doubt it was prob a "leaker" trying to cover their bases due to the Victorian London buzz that was going around). If London is involved maybe in this Comet game. And also correct me if I'm wrong but isn't Versailles just outside of Paris...or at least not very far away? If that's true why would it be a whole separate travel destination with separate city rather than just going there by exiting a city gate or in a Frontier like location?

Yes I agree with this, my dream setting would also been something in antiquity; Classical Athens or Rome in the Late Republic! Initially when I saw the leak I though great ANOTHER GAME IN THE 18TH CENTURY! This would be the 5th counting 'Freedom Cry' as a standalone game...right? Having said that however, if this is indeed the setting...I have a strong feeling I will like this more than AC3 (still haven't brought 'Black Flag'), as a matter of fact I think I will love it; as long as the mechanics don't grate on me. I personally never tire of old beautiful European cities. Good stuff. I may be actually getting excited again...for my fav series.

I'm personally fine with the setting again. The time period is awesome to be! Granted I would love to see China, or Medieval England But I can't agree and say that is is disappointing when this trailer was pan shots around a city and a castle glass. haha.

I too would like an east Asian setting hermano, but I'm also not tired of Europe, all we have had so far was one game and one expansion pack, European colonies don't count as European, they look very different.

Here in Germany we really like Italy, France, England, Spain, etc. I don't know what the problem is where you come from. I don't hate other Europeans....

I kinda have my doubts we'll follow a lot of the Napoleonic Wars. I think that the most we'd be seeing outside France would be Luxembourg City, Zurich or Milan. I think we'll be going as far as the War of the Second Coalition from the French Revolutionary Wars, but not much farther than that, for some reason. At most I see a city in Egypt working as the Principe of this game, just more extensive.

Also if it is true that they are releasing two separate AC games this year then that SUCKS. Way to milk the franchise even more and gouge money from AC fans. Now I am going to have to buy and play two AC games. One a year has been enough thank you. I hope Comet is good.

Meh AC4 is meh. Too much sailing, not enough stabbing.

Oh and the enviroments were ****, apparently jungles are made out of hallways. If I wasn't playing as a hooded character I'd have thought I was playing FF13 for a minute.

I also disagree, Unity is an advancement in what the core fans want, not some ridiculous distraction like sailing was in a sorry attempt to revitalize the game when it needed far more then that.

If you like AC4 so much, then just play it till one comes out you do like.

I'm also tired of this ******** about fresh experiences. Please... there would be no such thing as a franchise if some things weren't similar. Unity is innovating the systems which is far more than good enough, it's what they should have done in the first place.

Oh btw develop a taste for architecture, honestly it's like you're telling me a Colonial, a Victorian, an Antebellum, and a Modern house all look exactly the same.

Screw AC4's setting, a big fat ocean with a few pitiful hallway islands of which 75% have **** all to do on them. Oh yeah greaaaaaaaat setting!

06-24-2014, 05:56 AM
Unity's Paris setting actually reminds me a lot of AC3 combined with Brotherhood. It takes the European architecture of that era that Colonial Architecture was clearly based off of, and also combines it with the architecture of the Renaissance, medieval eras before it as well as the more ancient ones, including the catacombs. Really, I'm psyched.

It also reminds me a lot of Dishonored's setting just without the steampunk stuff, which is awesome.

Well, the city is built on a 1:1 scale, so it's going to be HUGE. I don't think there are any other cities we can roam, but since Paris is massive, I don't mind. I actually prefer it. In an interview I heard Paris is about 3 times larger than all of AC4's land put together.

They'd have been marketing it alongside Paris.

I'm not so sure about that. I remember back with AC2 before it was released, all we heard was that it would take place in Florence and Venice. When I started playing that game, I was expecting two cities. Instead I got five. I never heard anything about Forli, San Gimignano or Monteriggioni being in the game before that.
Then again, I haven't been following AC2's development as much as the more recent AC games so I could've just missed it.

I’ve been there last year, in fact, my avatar is taken there, haha! and I agree, it would be a great place to visit in an Assassin’s Creed game and Versailles is not really far from Paris so perhaps we’ll get to visit it in AC Unity.

So after the amazing game that is Black Flag, the bar was set real high for this year's AC. Honestly I am disappointed.

AC4 had one of the best settings in any of the AC games and it was so vastly different from anything before it. That is what I loved about AC, the varying environments. But it is going to be hard for them to make this feel different from AC2, brotherhood and rev.

I was hoping for a medieval Britain , Russia, Germany, or industry revolution setting. But they have seem to have returned to something wwhich already looks and feels very reminiscent of the Ezio games.

I will keep watching this but so far I'm not too impressed.

Also if it is true that they are releasing two separate AC games this year then that SUCKS. Way to milk the franchise even more and gouge money from AC fans. Now I am going to have to buy and play two AC games. One a year has been enough thank you. I hope Comet is good.

the truth is yeah you're right i hate to say this but it seems like almost every AC is a DLC like game. i watched the gameplay and i was not impressed, i was impressed with AC 4 and i was skeptical about it (due to past AC games) but was glad i got it.
i think ubisoft is becoming more like E.A. and will run itself out of business if they have such a **** business model of not really putting more effort in games, games are about quality not quantity.

Black Flag an amazing game? Maybe...an amazing Assassins Creed game? Not a chance...there is so much to improve that whatever Unity does is probably the right direction.

So your comparing a next generation Assassins Creed game that has been reinvented from the ground up to Black Flag ?

Dude we have only seen what 3 minutes of gameplay footage and a 30 second trailer ? I have been waiting for the French Revolution !

Paris being a major beacon for Masonic orders the grand architecture the ferocity of the Revolution the all new features such as the controlled decent and eagle pulse .

I would not really class Black Flag as a next generation title but seeing ACU and the work that has gone into it I really think your judgement on this occasion is clouded if you think a last generation Assassins Creed is going to be more superior .

Do people even watch interviews where they talk about this stuff before spilling their guts in such pure non-sense? Unity has been in the making FOR FOUR YEARS, how is that not putting effort? They have teams all around the world developing this game. It's absolutely impossible for them not to put effort onto a game that is rebuilding the franchise in so many different senses, for a different console that allows for much more development and, mind you, it's perhaps their most selling product (AC games).

Lol! That's ironic, 'cause ACIV was hardly a step up from ACIII. Honestly, ACIII had better fluidity and controls. ACIV just executed the story much better.

And Lol again to the "milking," 'cause AC:U was planned since ACB.

It's not like Ubisoft has a big red button that says "Push to make AC game" that they just press each year.
When people say there's no effort put in these games, their argument automatically becomes invalid to me.

indeed.

I bet they wished there was a big button - rather than hundreds of people, millions of man hours and years of development..

Not to mention the money they spend on researching, advertising, developing new animation systems, engines etc etc..


One big button would save a lot of money and hassle..

I fully appreciate the time they put into the AC series. Sometimes, I just stand there in the game and look around and think to myself "wow, they actually created this stunning historical open world" which is so much different to the usual modern open world games such as GTA. The research that goes into developing the world must be massive. I fully respect the work they put into the games. AC doesn't deserve the hate it gets from some people. AC does stuff so differently to the average game and I hope they continue to develop incredible games in the franchise.

Yes, an absurd scenario. Everyone knows it's really two keys that have to be turned at the same time.

On a more serious note, Ubisoft make some of my favourite games, beyond a shadow of doubt. I do feel there is a lot of room for improvement, especially in the area of communicating with their fans, but for anyone to say they don't put effort in is just talking twaddle.

However, sometimes the fans are more likely to award a B or even a C for effort over an A, copy 'n' paste animations from AC3 to AC4 being an example, (and giving some weight to 'no effort' arguments) the scarcity of double attacks/double kills in AC4, lack of sound on a lot of finishers etc. The same can be said of other franchises, FC£ MP to name just one, I could name others but this is an AC forum :)

With the above examples, we have to consider was it lack of effort, lack of will, lack of capability (of platform) lack of capability (of devs) or lack of time?

Taking lack of effort out of the equation doesn't neccesarily give a favourable outcome :)

I don't wish to sound too negative, the fact remains that my most wanted list for this year and the next is composed almost exclusively of Ubi games, I soak up tidbits of info where I can, find devs logs/interviews, but always at the back of my mind there are problems; will FC4 MP be as bad as FC3, will the fantastic graphics we've seen in AC Unity suffer a Watchdogs like deteriation, I wish such thoughts weren't there, but I still have some burn marks on my fingers from picking up some previous games!

Anyhoo, here's hoping AC Unity (and the other games I'm looking forward to) hit the sweet sopt, restoring my faith in Ubi and in mankind generally :)

PS Mr shade, why do we have the image verification requiremnt for posting, I never used to get this on the forums, it's a right pain to use! Is it something I need to alter in my own browser settings or is this a permenant feature now?

I hope so, it's really annoying, sometimes the W looks like a w etc, also I have dyslexia, I read by the shape of words more than by individual letters, so random letters together are really hard to type in and not get mixed up, takes me a few attempts and it's honestly put me off partcipating a few times.

I have to admit that every time someone says that all European countries look the same I feel like performing violent acts, I don't know if it's because of some sort of European "pride", or because we Europeans all secretly hate each other and the idea of being compared to other Euro country is instinctively unacceptable, or if it's because of the ignorance of it, or maybe a combination of everything.

A combination of everything...it is just so much ignorance...gggrrr

Well it simply was. No point in arguing about that. And you must be quite naive if you think it is easy to make a game. It takes some years. This is hard work and the developers are under pressure cause all the shareholders of Ubisoft want their money. Thats how it works. Companys man...they suck!

Worst game of them all for sure just start the game and see how itsa runs, and **** taken 60 exp into uplay before i got bored of the game, all other assaisen creed games i have play i have more or less finnish. just some games leave out some CO-OP, Creed game online gaming is relly sucks is the same in 3 as 4, etc etc is noting changes is a pain in the ***.

Worst of it is problie how to handling the controlling one PC, is so totaly diffrens frome 2 3 IV Syndicate.

Can not say any other that is the worst game ever released into the creed. and how is runes and do what you tell him to do sucks.

The charter dosent respond to the commando man giving him that make me wanna cast the PC out of the windows.

I disagree. Unity looked great but ultimately had a boring protagonist and story to me. I liked the ideas behind the story, but the execution was poor, and the game told more story (and more history (inaccurately)) in the side missions, something I hated about AC3's homestead missions (Connor's entire emotional side in those missions). I found Arno becoming a cynic and nihilist at the end very interesting and hoped for more, but Dead Kings resolved the character development over the course of like 10 minutes. This is also ignoring the fact that most historical characters were completely throwaway and it did nothing for the metastory (among many more problems).

Syndicate wasn't too much better. It felt more grounded in the setting because everything echoed Victorian London, and while most historical characters and events seem accurate (other the death of Dr John Elliotson and The Earl of Cardigan), it unfortunately had an inaccurate stance on child labor laws (the lack of real gangs didn't help either). The Main story was fine, and introduced us to some fun characters, but Evie and Jacob came off as uninspired and two dimensional, with a rift that came out of nowhere and closed again within the hour. While Syndicate didn't add much to the metastory, it added more than Unity, and felt like less of a slog somehow.

TLDR Both Unity and Syndicate had a ton of flaws, but I felt like Syndicate was a bit better.

Unity's my second favorite, just after ACII. The latter game really hooked me into the series, more so than the first, while Unity showed off what the then-new consoles were capable of. Compared to its predecessors (and to its Syndicate successor) I felt the parkour was much, much better, and sweet sons o' biscuits, those graphics...!

Unlike a lot of people, I dug my overly-littered map; I pay $90 for a game, I want my money's worth. On the flip-side, I liked Syndicate's Ripper DLC much more then Dead Kings.

Keep in mind I was playing ACU on a PS4 at launch but had zero of the issues others had, so that plays into my bias, too.

@ Sigma: What was inaccurately in Unity? I ask because I really want to know, I am not asking sarcastic.
What I hated about Syndicate was the fact that all the people you killed (the bigger ones), were fictive. That those targets were "real" people was a big thing in the series.
Story in Unity wasnt that great either, I agree. It's like the assassins simply forgot about Arno. He was thrown out of the order but still killed the templars. No other assassin was around and cared. Weird. But the mechanis were really great (see what ninjaforhire wrote).

@ ninjaforhire10: Exactly how I see it! I also had no issues on the PS4-version of the game.

What I hated about Syndicate was the fact that all the people you killed (the bigger ones), were fictive. That those targets were "real" people was a big thing in the series.

Well....
In AC1 only 4 out of 10 targets were actual real people (Garnier, Sibrand, William, Robert). 3 were loosely based on historical characters (Al Mualim, Majd Addin, Jubair). Everyone else was fully fictional. But still, that's only 40% of actual historical real people as targets.

In AC2, 11 out of 26 main story targets are real. That's 42% of actual historical real people as targets.

Of course, there are games with a different ratio, like for example in AC3, 6 out of 8 main targets are real people, so that's most of them. But it's no new thing for AC targets to consist of mostly fictionalized or loosely based main targets.

And while we're at it, not ALL Syndicate targets are fictional. 3 out of 9 main targets are real. It's 33% so it's lower than AC1 and AC2, but there are historical people.

Sorry for the late answer. Who were these real targets? Mind you, I'm really talking about assassination targets here, not other historical figures that acted as secondary figures.
