...Do you think Ubisoft will add more customizations to ship (including color of ship and style) and size upgrade options up to the size of a Man O' War?

And do you think they'll add online sailing multiplayer? (where you go around sinking opponents' ships with a fleet made up of your friends)

And if not, do you at least think these would be good ideas? If no, why?

Discuss.

Nope nope nope. **** this sailing nonsense. Bit by bit it's becoming a general sandbox game and not a AC game.

Colour and style possible. Size, not unless we can change ship, you can't enlarge a brig into a man o'war, you'd basically be building a whole new ship.

Multiplayer, maybe, they did want to do it last time after all, but couldn't make it work. If they have now, it figures they'd make this to implement it, before moving onto a whole new sailing based franchise.

i dont think that we will have sailing in Ac Comet! cause i believe that Ac comet will be at Russia and i dont believe that sailing and Russia goes together :P !
but from the other hand if connor appears (very rare) we maybe have some sailing missions!

I agree with all of that, and I also think you're right that you'll be able to buy a ship. It was so obvious that everyone would want to acquire a Man O' War in ACIV and Freedom Cry, and the only reason not to give you that so far would be to hold it back for a subsequent game. This will be the one, I think.

I don't see a reason to get a man o war. they are jsut big and clunky... faster smaller ships are much cooler.

I'm hoping it changes. It's such a weird tittle, no matter the reason. Personally, it doesnt intrigue me, it makes me think "WTF is that crappy name". People are ready to throw stones on AC and say it is horrible and milked now - and "Assassin's Creed: Comet" doesn't really help.

I don't consider it crappy at all. Oppositely...it's mysterious, I think.
I just want to know how on Earth comes a comet (if it is a real cosmic comet, maybe the Halley Comet) in the picture in an AC game which takes place at sea. Why is a comet so important that it got into the title of an AC game...

Cause there is an Ac book wich our heroe is from russia at world war 1 and there is a russian base with the name Comet!

Edit: the book is actually a comic book! and its called "The Fall"

The game is rumored to take place in 1758 and features sailors/sailing...


Halley thus concluded that all three comets were in fact the same object returning every 76 years, a period that has since been amended to every 75–76 years. After a rough estimate of the perturbations (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Perturbation_(astronomy)) the comet would sustain from the gravitational attraction of the planets, he predicted its return for 1758.[20] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Halley's_Comet#cite_note-20) Halley's prediction of the comet's return proved to be correct, although it was not seen until 25 December 1758, by Johann Georg Palitzsch (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Johann_Georg_Palitzsch), a German farmer and amateur astronomer.


The possibility has been raised that 1st-century Jewish (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jewish) astronomers had already recognized Halley's Comet as periodic.[26] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Halley's_Comet#cite_note-26) This theory notes a passage in the Talmud (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Talmud)[27] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Halley's_Comet#cite_note-27) which refers to "a star which appears once in seventy years that makes the captains of the ships err."[28] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Halley's_Comet#cite_note-28)

My guess is it's related, or this entry fed the rumor. I guess we'll find out soon enough.

Edit: Oh, and the prior appearance of the comet was 1682, the year Bartolomew Roberts was born. Speculate away!

The only thing I think was missing from Black Flag was multiboarding. If you could incapitate 2 ships at once one close to each other and then initiate a boarding sequence affecting both of them, now that would be awesome. Apart from that, let's stick to what we have from Black Flag and occupy ourselves with the stealth part.

I'm well aware of that graphic novel. It is canon, but it means nothing regarding where the game wll take place. I would say it being a comic already gives it less chanse of being a game.

all the rumors about the game points to mroe sailing and new york.

You could in IV, although it wasn't counted until you completed the boarding of the roped ship and then boarding the 2nd defeated one resulted in an instant win.

It was a bit weird though. Some extremely strange things could happen to the ship physics if you boarded more than one ship. Often the second vessel's deck would tip into the sea.

Yeah, this was kind like exploiting the boarding system. I mean a fully fledged multi-boarding system with your crew participating in both ships' boardings and perhaps the enemy crew boarding your ship as well.

I've just seen reports along the lines that Ubisoft wasn't going to " abandon" PS3/X360 (duh, there's 10-20 times more of them). I was just wondering if you had seen something more concrete than that. Even if it is a last gen exclusive, Ubi would be smart to make it playable on new gen, either as DLC like Liberation or through PSNow. So maybe there is hope for Taras1806.

Nobody said it was not possible, tell that to the game devs. I'm still not 100% sure if they would enable sailing to far off countries in AC Comet.

That's all I've been saying :)

They made AC: Comet just so they could re-use the whole "sailing" feature because of how popular it was in AC: IV.

Even though they said that the setting is the main priority and not the features it seems like they dont wanna drop the sailing feature. If AC: Comet has positive feedback (especially with the sailing) then I bet that they are going to re-use the feature for the next game in 2015.

You betcha. I don't mind if they use it again, they just need to add more options like more type of ships, more customizeable ships, maybe more weapons.

It may not be so simple. It is pretty much granted Comet will copy+paste mechanics from AC3/4 without with maybe some small changes/additions and new maps (with reused textures, trees etc). But going next-gen with that ain't gonna be as easy, Unity may rehaul a lot of the basic mechanics, the engine will obviously be much different to AC3/4/Comet. Much more work would be needed to bring the sailing to next-gen line of AC games compared to another PS360 game that reuses msot of what is already done and polished.

Plus, they may just spin-off the entire thing into its own game series

I feel like Ubisoft are acting like a child who just learned a new word and keeps parroting it over and over. They made naval in ACIII and it became a theme for ACIV, the iPad/iPhone AC:Pirates game and now this. They added animal hunting and it moved to ACIV, they added bombs and they dragged on. Like for God’s sake, if you’re running out of ideas and out of talent, don’t make it too obvious.

I know you’re working based on the public’s reception but seriously, invent something original and let the public love it, instead of patching every single move to the next 2-3 games.

Well, it IS a really good new gameplay mode, Ubi Singapore made a great job so I'm not really mad/surprised they would want to make a couple games out of it. And as for hunting - it provides new kind "assassination" targets, how is it bad for this franchise?

It isn’t bad. It’s just doesn’t feel original anymore when it keeps dragging on and on. It’s like a singer who released a song that became a worldwide hit and remains her whole career trying too hard to repeat that success with a very similar song rather than making something new and original which will attract so much admiration because it’s new and original not relying on something in the past.

I’d say each new thing the introduce is good for it’s time but not forever. I’d rather go back to BC times and live as an Assassin who doesn’t have any weapons but his skills than keep dwelling on the Hidden Blade, Swords and Pistols.

Ubi does support PC in the sense that every console exclusive content so far have been released for PC - even if the games are delayed for a while. The problem is the poor optimization and lack of decent support, so yeah, it's a gamble when you buy the game and hope for it to run on your PC.

Comet's release date in summer can work because that season is known as a "drought" for video games. Not too many games, or big titles come out in summer time. This can give Ubisoft an edge and maximize profit, if the game is appealing enough.

True, also, I don't think they can release comet during the summer and keep all the new gen fans waiting till Unity. Everyone spend money for new gens and Ubi wont do that to them. I think itll be around the same time because they want to satisfy both parties, (Old gen fans and New gen fans). Don't keep anyone waiting

I'm wondering how much they're (once again) downplaying Haytham's role in the game. We've heard the phrase "Kenway Saga" thrown about lately, and Haytham noticeably doesn't have his own game, aside from the few memory sequences he had in ACIII. I know that a lot of his life was covered in the books, but it would be really cool if they made a sailing type game starring him in the Mediterranean. We already know that he visits Constantinople to rescue Jennifer. However, a Mediterranean game could make use of a lot of Ubisoft's previous assets. Not only could we see a return to Istanbul, but possibly revisit some remastered versions of Venice, Acre, Cappadocia, and other classic AC cities. There could even be some new additions, such as Tripoli or Marseille. Plus, it's almost a given that the Rocks of Gibraltar could house a First Civ temple. This game could be fantastic, and be one of the most diverse AC games to date- though I imagine I'm being a bit optimistic about this even being a possibility.
