The interview is split into two parts: gameplay and story. I was originally told Travis Stout (Lead Writer) would be at E3 but he wasn't, so I asked Alex the story questions instead.

Yeah E3 was a little hectic because new information was constantly coming out. I also had less time than expected since we had to suddenly cram both the gameplay and story questions in a single time slot with Alex (instead of splitting the story questions off for Travis). I tried to pick some questions that were highly voted, interesting, and hadn't been extensively answered at the time of filming.

At first I thought he was kinda trying to curve around the actual meat of my question, the systemic crowd events, but then he totally went into it. Hopefully they still will be in the main game.


And honestly, even though I like most of his decisions..his decision regarding the accents is just.so stupid lol. I can't put it any other way..

You made it english just because that's how Hollywood portrayed it to Americans??? The hell kinda reason is that? I would have MAYBE understood if it was the whole animus translating thing..but what the actual hell lol.

Last time I checked, French people sounded french..and he just confirmed it wasn't because animus..it wasn't because he is part austrian..it is just because. Which kinda annoys me. Why not just get a french actor? I don't understand.

"We'll still add in the occasional french word" ...WHAT????????

Pretty sweet!

I agree that the accent stuff wasn't the best but I understand it.

Basically he said Edward hears Spanish soldiers speak Spanish because he doesn't understand it, English people on the other hand talk in their natural accent to make it feel more authentic apparently.

Then they said that Arno sounds English because your character is French and so he can't hear French accents, there is no accent to him because all he knows i French.

That's their explanation anyways... it makes sense but at the same time really doesn't, French people can't hear French accents?

Wolfmeister1010
06-15-2014, 08:50 PM
That is stupid. If they are gonna use the argument that he can't hear french accents because he is french, then he should hear everyone in a monotone robot voice..because a noble british royalty accent is not the "standard" accent..

Honest to God....does Alex have a code that he has to make ONE completely horrific and idiotic decision per game?? I mean..at least it isn't another tower defense type thing but god..

Awesome interview, thanks Loomer great job!

Now I know what Eagle pulse is! I love how Paris is considered the main character of the side content. Focusing on uncovering the story of a place is the type of game narrative that works the best imo (aka Bioshock). Ofc Unity will also tell Arno's story in the main campaign.

It's cool with guys like Alex who never hesitates and are capable of giving long and intelligent answers no matter what you throw at them. Wish I had some of that :)!

Yeah that was the one answer I wasn't really satisfied with. I wanted to push more but we were already short on time. It's so weird, it almost sounds like from now on any game not set in America will have dialogue with British accents because that's "foreign". I can't imagine that's going to actually be the case. It's also completely counter to how the Ezio games were handled (unfortunately we got sidetracked by AC3's logic when I brought that up).

I honestly wonder if it's just that they had trouble doing french accents without it sounding like a caricature. "I'm french! Why do you think I have this outrageous accent?" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A8yjNbcKkNY

"We'll still add in the occasional french word" ...WHAT????????

Totally agree. I was fully expecting the 'oh it's the animus' and 'that's how it's done in Hollywood' BS, so I'm not surprised that he provided such poor reasoning. The English accents sound so bad, and are totally incongruous with the setting and period. I don't think accusing them of being lazy would be entirely fair, considering the time and effort required to scout British-English speaking VAs would be far greater than those that speak French. I mean, the lead studio is based in a French speaking capital so they obviously can't be short on people who speak the language. I just think it's an odd and poorly realised creative choice.

ArabianFrost
06-15-2014, 11:28 PM
Maybe it's cause people usually view french accents as comical as well them being somewhat incomprehensible when speaking for long? The only protagonist that had a non-English/American accent was Ezio and it wasn't even Italian, it was Latin, so I don't know why people are complaining.

Edit:
Nevermind. Remembered the Aveline game. They don't have an excuse.

I've heard a few people saying the French accent wouldn't sound very good (i.e. fake/silly) but I really don't see where they're coming from. If they've got French voice actors to do it then surely that would be fine. And maybe they could have squeezed in a Monty Python Easter Egg somewhere :rolleyes:

Jexx21
06-15-2014, 11:44 PM
I think it is actually because french accents are more thick than some other accents and are harder to understand. It's fine for a few characters in other games, but not for everyone for the entire game, at least not for the American audience (Aveline didn't have a thick French accent). Of course they can't say that because it would probably be offensive.

JustPlainQuirky

Even though Aveline's accent wasn't thick I still had trouble understanding her, tbh.

You did the best you could with time constraints and unexpected turn of events. Half of the questions I already knew because over the past few days I have already searched up heaps of interviews to get updated before watching this one so I guess thats kinda my fault lol.

Yea I dont really like the accents thing either its really confusing "french people cant hear french people and english people cant hear this and that and bla bla bla" how about " Um soz Loomer brah we got lazy and couldn't be bothered to get a good VA and just chucked a common british accent on him :rolleyes:

AC2 never had skills...
all of the subsequent games had weapons with stats just like AC2 as well

if you're talking about the Villa, something like that was in AC3 and AC4 as well, although I do think Unity is bringing it back in a bigger way that expands upon it.

06-16-2014, 12:39 AM

That's right; but with AC2, there was a clear sense of progression with the gear. That sense of progression was kinda lost, I think, in later games. Including the search for the 'special armor'----in ACB it came FAR too late in the storyline, and from ACR onwards, it & the quests leading to it didn't matter all that much.

Now with *skills*, and gear that *makes a difference*, that sense of *improving*/*customizing* your character will return. That's what I meant.

The british accent would be easier to understand than a thick french accent. It would have made more sense to have the main character to actually be British considering many Brits were involved in the revolution. Maybe Arno is actually from England and has ties to the Kenway story arc. This could be something they are keeping under wraps.

I was honestly hoping the main character to be a British spy who is involved with the revolution. Scarlet Pimpernel anyone?

sequence 12 is in 1782. The Ac unity demo sequence was in 1789. By then Arno is a skilled assassin. Arno's father was killed when he was much younger apparently. Just saying there could be some ties which would be nice since the templar presence in England seemed pretty significant.

It does mean no ties to the Kenways, because being tied to the Kenways would mean being tied to Desmond as they're his ancestors. That's how I see it anyways.

Jexx21

they meant no biological ties in terms of that. The story can still have ties to the Kenways but it would be through Arno's eyes.

There's almost no limit to the activities, we could set up stealth challenges, races, play our own version of the original hide and seek style MP without the killing, explore the catacombs together, kill absurd amounts of guards...

Quite frankly it's genius, I don't know why the didn't do it before, it's much more fun to create your own games than be stuck with specific game types. Imagine setting up a certain land mark as a base in one district and then having the three friends blend or hide and trying to find them, if you find them they can escape to base, use smoke bombs, rile up the crowd, attract guards... then obviously the base means they're safe from being caught but can't begin running toward it until they know you've spotted them.

Little things like that could be quite a bit of fun.

Like when you try to kill NPCs who are important. The game wont let you highlight over them to shoot or attack. Most you can do is bump into each other me thinks.

I think the only time I got away with killing someone was when I killed Connor's best friend in the bow tutorial. Still hilarious the developers added that in.

hide and seek wouldn't work because we have icons over our heads saying where we are.

When the game gets more closer I will start a thread on all the activities we could do.

-Horse racing
-Parkour racing
-King of notre dame
-Last man standing (fight off as many guards as possible as a group and whoever dies last wins)
- Hide and seek (with guards)
-tag
- Round up as many guards as possible and escape and hide without climbing a roof.

Well you already said tag too ;P then with all the ways you can force the crowd to interact you could really screw with your friends lol. Set up a base and see if you can get your friends before they reach it. Maybe it could be two it at a time in order to make it so it's not overly difficult.

EDIT - ****ing Ninja'd X}

We could also make the parkour races more specific, such as see who can reach the bottom or top of a building first, we could even combine them into marathons, ride the horse to the river, cross the river, climb the landmark in x district ;P

The pic second before last seems to depict the sewers... which looks like another pointless maze. Please god tell me they have something better in the sewers than a damn maze with a few guards.

I know the catacombs will probably be the meatier and more enjoyable experience but... I don't want them to just shove another pointless maze in the game.

It's somewhat troubling if the entire catacomb system is that simplistic, but on the plus side, that pic confirms maces/war hammers will be in the game.

Edit- regarding being able to kill other players, bombs are apparently returning in this game (poison bombs are advertised in the Chemical Revolution thing). Wonder if you can kill other people with those.

Oh no those are the sewers not the catacombs, don't worry lol they're separate places.

Still I don't want either of them to be so simple and dull.

OMG! Poison bombs? :D I looooooooved Datura bombs in ACR, people always say they never used bombs or that they're useless but I found plenty of use for them, a few types anyways and the poison bomb was one of the main ones.

TBH I'm not bothered either. And I can totally see where he's coming from with the Hollywood statements; British seems to be the default accent for any period piece, while French is almost exclusively used for comic effect. Unfortunately that trend has definitely shaped my perception of French accents, and to this day even legit French accents sound like caricatures to me. Not sure how well I'd take to a game full of them. Italian never had that problem, since Italians are always cool in the movies (excluding the Jersey Shore type).

One thing that does kind of bother me, though, is that he really stresses in this interview that they take a lot of time to introduce us to Arno and get a feel for his character and personality. That's the exact opposite of what I was hoping for. I wanted him to become an Assassin pretty much right off the bat, filling in the backstory as we go (maybe even in flashbacks like Edward's memories of Caroline, or even unlockable "traumatized" missions like the Cristina ones that become available as we boost our sync rate). The last thing I want is to have three sequences of dad, four sequences of adopted dad, eight sequences of Arno before puberty, and thirty minutes of Assassin Arno :rolleyes:

It's all very confusing, really. Because both him and the producer stressed how the game takes place between Storming of Bastielle and Reign of Terror end (1789-1794), and at the same time they talk about the story spanning decades and being epic. Maybe there's going to be one introductory sequence (a.l.a. Sequence 4 of AC3) spanning ages, maybe it's really going to be via flashbacks (which I feel is a much better way to do things, I would love the game to start with an assassination in Paris, though I think they confirmed that the game starts in Versailles? Assassination there is going to be fine too :D )

Yeah, I really don't know. Unless they're going to pull another "play as the dad" thing, and after hearing about all of Arno's paternal drama that's looking rather likely. Since Arno was adopted, we could technically play as the adoptive father even after Arno was born, so maybe we'll be introduced to Arno through his eyes? I dunno.

Remember how they said AC3 was going to span from 1753-1783, but then said Connor wasn't born until 1756? That confused the hell out of everyone here, lol.

Im the complete opposite. The one thing I loved about AC 3 was that you played as Connor from a child to an adult. I find story telling much more immersive if it is done in a more longitudinal fashion. I don't want to spend more than 2 hours on his childhood, but a few missions showing us his origin story would be awesome.

Oh, don't get me wrong, I want to see his backstory too, but it needs to be paced out a hell of a lot better than AC3 was. Literally, more than HALF of AC3 was prologue.

Farlander1991
06-16-2014, 11:16 AM
The problem with AC3 is pacing. It started with Haytham - in a very slow tutorial in Seq 1, then went on to a still tutorially Seq 2 (elements of certain missions), then we had a do what you want Seq 3, then we get to Connor and AGAIN in a heavily tutorially Seq 4, and then we get to Seq 5 and it's a tutorial sequence slower than Seq 1 (there are only two normal missions in the whole sequence I feel - Boston Massacre and River Rescue, everything else is tutorial for shops, homestead, ships, whatnot). And then we get to Sequence 6 which STILL has introductory missions (i.e. The Angry Chef where we're introduced with recruiting and controlling new assassins). By all means what's Sequence 6 now should've been Sequence 4 at most.

So many discussions about accents on these forums, I'm not bothered by the lack of French accents at all.

It's weird, the only thing that bothered me was his slight northern accent. He says FrANCE instead of FrARnce. Surprisingly, Altair's American accent never bothered me either, but I think this was mainly because his Arabic was entirely authentic and really beautiful. So I guess as long as the voice actor speaks convincing French at times I'll be happy. Alex Amancio's French pronunciations during the E3 demo for instance, lent a strong sense of authority for me. Proper pronunciation of Notre Dame and Palais de Justice was appreciated.

I'm not that bothered by the introductory sequences as long as they fit in and aren't too long (looking at you AC III). AC II's introduction was perfect. You started off with a brawl on the Ponte Vecchio before a rooftop run. Following missions involved collecting things, beating people up, delivering things, all of which was fun in a city like Florence. It gave the player enough time to learn the ropes without too much pressure and without holding their hand too much. Besides, Ezio felt like an assassin from the beginning of the game for me. You got the sense that the transition from playboy to assassin was pretty seamless for him, because his friends and his brother presumably spent their time messing about, climbing the roofs, running away from guards.

AC III on the other hand was marred by a lot of serious dialogue, restricting missions in opera houses, on boats and in forests playing hide and seek. It was a long time before you felt you could do what you wanted.


People knwo they can just switch the language in the game to french and put on english subtitles right? no need for accents.

Wait what? I knew you could do those two things separately but not together. Are you sure? From what I recall, once you change the language, the subtitles will only be in that language. I wanted that authenticity too.

I'm so annoyed at this! Not just because it feels weird but it seems like such a silly thing to do!
If it wasn't for the issue with the accents then everything about Unity would be amazing! It's only one thing but it was so avoidable!
It was a foolish decision and the reasons given for it are unsatisfactory. As a British person, British accents don't sound archaic at all, they just sound normal. And I can here people with accents from different parts of England... How does that make sense?

I just wish in the next couple of months, they re-record the dialogue with French accents (obviously not going to happen). I hope this isn't repeated with later games.

And they're a French company! This is the game where they should have nailed the dialogue!!

To those saying french accents would be too hard to understand ... there are several "levels " of accents you know, from very thick to very subtle.

They could've made it subtle while still keeping the french flavour.

I don't mind Arno having no french accent, you can explain that with him having grown up to speak English from the get-go or having and English mother/father or relative or growing up in an English-speaking society because the family was... what the hell do I know...a family of merchants, bankers, etc?

But nobody speaking French... I mean come on...
No English in French accents, no native French (like Native Italy in AC2 or American Slang and Royal English and French in AC3) ?

They still have French words thrown in just like when Arno attacks that old man in the social club.

The 'you can't hear French accent because you are French" logic makes sense; people tell me I have an 'Indian' accent when I interact with some foreign friends for example, but I absolutely don't notice this accent while speaking with my native friends in English.

Problem is, if this was true, how were we hearing Italian accents as Ezio? or middle eastern twang on people and soldier's words as Altair?
Logic is fine, only that it's not consistent with the rest of the series.

I think it's a cover excuse for "we didn't use French accent cuz it sounded too funny/heavy" which is a shame. French Revolution with French accent is like chicken sandwiches without chicken. Italian accent sounded funny to me as well, so I doubt this would have been any worse.

Consistensy isnt a thing.. i mean things eveolve and change, they might take note of our reacctions after the game is out and see if theyll do differently for future games or not.

I always loved when the guards said "Eccolo get heeeem!" in AC2 and ACB.

Dunno if that's the word but it sounded like that lol.

Yes me too.

Also: Do you know what we do to capone like you? We bring out Bruno the donkey.

Man, I used to bump into guards all the time just to listen to the fun stuff they had to say.

I hope they go back to the way it used to be, instead of just giving everyone British accents from now on.

They'll lose the cultural spice that makes the franchise awesome!

I've liked practically every French accent in the games already too... wth lol. Lafayette's, Stephane's, Baron De Valois.. All very great accents that were perfectly easy to understand too. There's little excuse for them to not add it.

That said, I like Arno's accent now.

Sounds like the demo they're describing is the exact same one they showed on stage. Kinda weird they weren't allowed to film it.
