View Full Version : What I think the "Comet" is referring to...

I think the Assassin's Creed Comet title is referring to Captain Cooks 1769 secret mission to observe the transit of Venus in the Pacific Ocean. Even though the mission itself was secret he had an even more secret mission directly by the King to find the southern continent, "Terra Australis Incognito".
I think the title Comet refers to how Venus generally looks less like a planet and more like a comet thanks to its teardrop shaped ionosphere. An Australian setting?

Interesting. But I doubt it.

There are many possibilities.

There would probably be no more pirate focused AC games. They were considering making a new IP out of this ship fighting game mechanic that was so interesting to people. I never found it that amusing. Don't know why people liked it so much.

OR what if AC Comet is also set in the same time period as Unity but were playing from the viewpoint of a Templar?

Im not referring to a "pirate game".

Australia was only by chance discovered due to the "comets" arrival, I am asking could it be a clue to an Australian setting?

Venus looks like a comet? Do you know what comet look like? They are a few miles long ice chunks with "NO" tail, they only have a tail when we see them because they come close to the sun and the sun starts melting it, causing a tail. So no, I don't agree at all. But I do think this has something to do with water and pirates again for other reasons

Obviously the game will take place in 20xx in the Space Colonies, Reploids (Assassins) fighting against Mavericks (Templars)
We all know that'll be the case

Prague had a comet. Not sure if this location is possible. It's in Europe and Ubisoft loves Europe.

The Great comet of 1577, seen over Prague on November 12. Engraving made by Jiri Daschitzky.

The Great Comet of 1577 (official designation: C/1577 V1) was a comet that passed close to Earth during the year 1577 AD. It was viewed by people all over Europe, including the famous Danish astronomer Tycho Brahe and Turkish astronomer Taqi ad-Din. From his observations of the comet, Brahe was able to discover that comets and similar objects travel above the Earth's atmosphere.[1] The best-fit using JPL Horizons suggests that the comet is currently about 320 AU from the Sun (based on 24 of Brahe's observations spanning 74 days from 13 November 1577 to 26 January 1578).[2][3]

Yeah. There's believable on one hand, and on the other... Well, I don't think he's even there. He's so out there it's ridiculous. Hilarious for sure, though.

Was that the case, I can assure you I'd probably lose it upon announcement and cry of happiness. I don't care which of both gens it's for, a game set in Prague really would do it for me. If Vienna was worked into such a game as well, it'd be absolutely wonderful.

Interesting, definitely a possibility but somehow I feel there are 2 games this year for a reason. One for fans of Europe which is set in France, and the other set outside Europe, for fans wanting a different culture.

Great Comet of 1577 had no impact on world history, Transit of Venus in the Pacific led to the discovery of a new continent. Major difference.

It refers most likely to Halley's Comet, which was sighted in 1758 by a bunch of French astronomers who used the calculations of British astronomer Edmund Halley. Halley had based his calculations on earlier sights of the comet most famously the one just before William the Conqueror's invasion of England. But his calculation was only verified in 1758.

Could you stop necroing old threads for the sake of saying they were wrong?

I totally agree. It was fun during ACIII, but thatís about it. In ACIV, it was OK, but it became a chore and it was Edward who was good enough to make up for the excessive naval exploration. I donít see why people went crazy about naval and why itís even being present in a 3rd game.
