There was a big thing with leaks and rumours a while ago and people were throwing in ideas! When are we going to get an official announcement? Usually by this point in the year we'd at least have a teaser or even gameplay footage? Is comet still or what? Would someone enlighten me

Ubisoft CEO, Yves Guillemot strengthened the rumors surrounding Comet at the 2nd day of E3 by saying that Assassin's Creed is not quite ready to leave last gen just yet. Of course, there was no Comet announcement in E3, which is a bit odd. Right now, the community still believes that an AC game is being developed for last gen and that Ubisoft avoided to announce it during E3, so that people do not mix the 2 games in their minds and marketing becomes difficult.

But seriously. It's either a last gen game or last gen DLC akin to Freedom Cry. And it's likely coming this year.

We'll see.

Yves said you will hear about comet in the future. If there is info, you will defo hear it here.

At the moment, they are want the focus on Unity.

They didnt announce anything officially. I thought they would announce it at E3 alongside Unity but with more emphasis and spotlight on Unity. Now I am thinking they wont make any announcements until Unity releases.

It kind of is a bad idea to announce two games, one of which is the one you have worked hard on with full force but is only on the next gen, and the other one which will be easily available to everyone and most probably is a spin-off. Ofcourse the majority will decide to buy the ps3/360 version to get their annual AC fix.

With Unity being the only AC game until late 2014, it may encourage more gamers to jump on the next gen and play the true next AC game. Im pretty sure there will be a Comet game though, I doubt Ubi wont capitalize on the huge market with ps360s.

ehhh... I have a feeling that we will only see what they want us to see when they are ready. I mean think about Unity, other than knowing the name we really didn't know anything else about it until about 2 weeks ago for E3. They did a great job at keeping things pretty secret this time around.

I think they're not confident with Comet.

Or that somehow people will hate it. Either because:

1. It's a low quality game
2. It's a good game that was kicked back to last gen

I think they didn't show it there because they wanted people to focus in on Unity. If they showed Comet, I'm assuming it has the same movement as all the other AC games did, haystacks and all. They didn't want that competing with Assassins Creed Unity. I am kind of thinking they might not even reveal it at any convention, and just maybe make a general announcement. E3 is supposed to be about the OOOOOOs and AAAAAAAAHs, and so they show shiny AC Unity, Far Cry 4, etc to get that. Comet could be a good enough game, but more like new story, but nothing really new as far as game mechanics go. Which would not really work with E3.

Comet doesn't exist.

I believe this. I don't care what Yves' said, in fact I think he was just told to say that by PR because they don't want a ****storm. It's been way too long now with nothing.

Maybe I've just lost hope, saying that I wouldn't care about Comet if it wasn't either that Templar naval rumour (setting may not be exciting but playing as a Templar? Camannnnn) or a Connor game.

Pretty sure flat out lying about having a game for last gen games rather than just quashing the rumor would cause a much bigger ****storm. Than again sometimes companies don't use any common sense.

Shahkulu101

He didn't explicitly state that a game was coming to last-gen, though. That's why it's not even widely reported. So he could pretty much debunk those claims if they happened.

Rugterwyper32
06-27-2014, 04:31 AM
Comet either doesn't exist or it's a multiplayer focused game for last gen seeing how there's no traditional vs. multiplayer in Unity. That'll probably be the case.
But wait
The C represents Carbon, with combined with 2 molecules of Oxygen forms Carbon Dioxide. You know what else includes oxygen, though? Water. Which is formed of two molecules of Hydrogen and one of Oxygen, H2O. But wait, if you turn the O into a square and cut out the upper and right parts of it, and a bit of the lower, you get L. And it doesn't stop there. If you turn the m 90 degrees clockwise, it looks like... a 3.
HL3et.
Half Life 3 confirmed, and it will include ET as a main character. I've figured it out guys, everyone can go home now and get some sleep I've solved the mystery.

As much as I liked Assassin's Creed Unity graphics, motion flow, active environment and time period, I can't help but notice that Ubisoft has allocated all their resources to the transition to the new generation consoles but without anything new to the Assassin's Creed mythos. Let me explain my argument.

1st of all, there is no "present time" story. From AC 1 to AC 3 we experience Desmond's story and through him we view Altair's, Ezio's and Connor's achievements throughout history. With AC 4: Black Flag we get a closure to Desmond's story on small bits that were left untold or unexplained at the end of AC 3. On AC Unity, we are AC Initiates training while channeling Arno Dorian to become a real member of the League of Shadows err.. I mean the Order of the Assassins. But nothing on Desmond's team that survived the previous games' events and the struggle with Abstergo Industries / |Entertainment. (Yes I am a lore geek I know)

2nd There is no multiplayer. Not that in the first AC there was one nor that the rest of AC games had a breathtaking multiplayer but all in all, if you want to multiplay, you have to do the Co-Op missions in-game. I only hope there are constant DLC's with new missions to enjoy (justify) playing online.

3rd The fact that Unity has better parkour moves, a stealth/crouch button and allows the player to descend as well as scale a building with better realism does not make up for the loss of the present time story.

I know many people that love the AC franchise as much as I do do not care one bit about the present time story and only care about assassinating targets, scale buildings and "Requiescat in Pace" but the real story lies in present time and all the memories and heroes we loved served a purpose for the present time.
Having said that, I only hope our present time self in Unity is the person from Black Flag. That Abstergo Entertainment employee that did all the hacking, that revealed the truth about Juno's consort (Bartholomew Roberts & present time Abstergo Ent. IT guy) The person that did all the hacking and uncovered the truth about Desmond and how far Abstergo has gone in terms of memory retrieval and recreation.

In any case, I do hope that Comet is coming out to fill the gaps that Unity has in terms of story and I don't care if it's for last gen consoles or for every console and PC. It's for the good of the franchise because as far as Unity goes, if I didn't have a PS4 yet, Unity definitely couldn't sell me a PS4.
I would much prefer to have a new AC game not yet a next gen but with great story inside the memories as much as in real life than Unity.

As a last comment, if Comet is not announced on Gamescom, as much as it pains me and I feel I am betraying the AC universe that I love, I look more forward to Shadow of Mordor than to Unity.

Now I know that I will get flamed to death, I simply stated my opinion. An opinion from a guy that loves Assassin's Creed more than any other game he ever played since the NES era.

I'm kidding--actually tell me more. I'm weighing a gaming PC versus a PS4 currently, largely because though I prefer consoles, all my friends PC game. And I would dearly like to have group shanking sessions.

@grey

If you can afford a high end PC or can build a good custom one, go for PC gaming all the way. You save more money in the long-run.If you cant chalk up enough cash to afford a high end one, you'll likely end up with a PC that stutters significantly and impacts your enjoyment of a game. The cheaper games, free online, generally better graphical performance, bonus web browsing experience and mod capabilities are all pros. Cons include chance of poor optimization, high initial cost, and of course chance of getting a virus. Ps4 you have a guaranteed working game, ability to trade/return said game, no fear of virus, and a much less expensive initial price tag. Cons would be paying for online multiplayer, generally more expensive games, and lower graphical performance.

Use a controller and you'll be golden with a PC - provided you maintain the hardware quality above the current consoles.

Thanks for all the advice folks...

I think I'm reasonably well appraised of usage pros and cons. My biggest question at this point is financial. A friend of mine built his rig fairly cheaply, but he has much more computer savvy than I do, and so was able to cherry pick the parts he wanted for cheap over a period of months, and then assemble it at home. I've generally seen that as the cheapest option, but I don't have the know-how.

That not being an option for me, it doesn't seem possible to avoid paying insane sums for a machine that will hold up over enough time to outdo a console.

The other (totally extraneous) factor is that if I go the route of a console, the money I save buys me a new mandolin. And mandolins are a sexy factor.

well im saving up 1,000 or so for a custom PC.

I'm no expert, but I reckon there's a good build out there for 800 bucks. Enough to out-perform current gen anyway. Even so, a good thing about building your PC is that it's all upgradable. So you can upgrade it again later.

I forgot about that pro and con. Ps4 isnt backwards compatible nor is it upgradable. PCs generally are.

I'm starting to think the AC: Comet leak regarding Shay, Ade, and Haytham is fake. I say this because the same person who said that also said that AC: Unity's title referenced the unification of templars and assassins when in reality it referenced 4 player co-op as specified by the developers. http://www.gameblog.fr/chronique_706_assassin-s-creed-comet-sur-ps3-et-xbox-360-nos-infos-black-f/page3

Someone feel free to correct me if im wrong.

I will be surely disappointed if it is fake.

It fulfils 2 of my wants. Templar game & includes Haytham.

All it would need is good plot progression in the juno saga and I'd be 100% satisfied.

I suspect that would be the case. Saving the unpopular modern day for last gen I mean.

you do realize that if Unity does refer to the unification of Assassins and Templars that they wouldn't tell us about it since that would probably be a major plot point that they wouldn't want to spoil?

They already said we are the protagonist and we'll start off piloting the animus and we'd be contacted later by Assassins.

I'm quite sure that Unity isn't a reference to an Assassin-Templar union but to the Assassin-Initiates union. In case people are not aware, the modern day Assassins have offered the Initiates (composed by every single person who plays AC) to join their cause in order to defeat the Templars (and most likely to fight Juno as well). Well, it's not that much of an offering, more like an announcement. Since it has been pointed out that we'll be playing as ourselves once again, yet not as an Abstergo employee, and that the Assassin's will contact us at one point for us to research the French Revolution period, I believe it's pretty obvious we'll be an Initiate agent on the game. We'll see, though.

Talk about dedicated roleplaying. I find it rather silly, really.

Members there get exclusive content, information etc and being an AC initiate - is a 'thing' - since you're a initiate member finding out all sorts of things about the creed ;)

I'm with you on that one! I never believed that Shay rumor, nor the fact that we'll be visiting New York via naval combat etc. What about that other rumor though....the one that AC Comet will be set in ancient Rome and we'll be seeing Julius Cesar? Now THAT is very promising to me indeed! Also, if it's true, it shakes the foundation of the entire Assassin's Creed mythos that the Assassins and the Templars first appeared during the Crusades! Truly intriguing. And the leaked image of the ancient Roman assassin is nice as well!

I wasn't aware of the fact that this image was debunked and mythbusted.... thanks for sharing that information with me :) Too bad though because I will have to disagree with you on the Roman setting being similar to AC Brotherhood's Rome. It's ancient vs Renaissance Rome. The one has gladiators and ancient soldiers that expanded an empire as big as Alexander the Great and the other is the Borgia Rome, the Da Vinci and Machiavelli Rome. You can't compare the two bro... it's like comparing ancient Athens to the Turkish occupation Athens.. or AC Unity Paris to today's Paris :)

+1 on what you said. Agreed on the remodeling part. I'm still saddened that you mythbusted that image I posted as a fake :( This could have been the last AC game that didn't just rely on stealth (that could be the connection to AC4) I was so hyped to be able to fight in the arena with other gladiators and to see how was the Assassins Order back in those times. Although, such a setting I would much more proffered it on PS4 instead of PS3 but it's a setting that can use PS3's capabilities to the max as a last and great goodbye to previous gen consoles from Assassin's Creed.

No one really knows what they are playtesting (or will be playtesting). Only thing we know is that it shouldn't have anything to do with Unity since they are looking for PS3/XBOX360 users that aged from 18 to 35 years old I think and that it's an Assassin's Creed entry. Also from what I saw on Facebook, the announcement was for France only (French people living in the vicinity of Paris) and that the spots were filled fairly quickly as some people have reported that they received an email saying that the playtest is now full.

Also, the announcement was in french only.


Playtest at the headquarters in France during 4 days, you have to be a PS3/360 player and a fan of the franchise. It begins Tuesday.

Wow, what a bull crap answer from him. Sheesh. I was under the impression that someone else said that, but I guess it was Darby, huh?

I don't think I've ever heard anyone say "look to the stars" and meant "wait and see."

07-01-2014, 02:08 AM
eh if that Shay thing is true, New York probably won't be a direct copy paste. They'd probably make the landmarks more 1:1 so they'd be taller (unless they were already 1:1)

I'll get it no matter what as well, but like ACR I might end up getting it on sale later on. AC3 and AC4 are the only AC games I bought at release w/o a discount, and tbh I'm going to end up buying both again so I have the Sony exclusive stuff as well as them being tied to my Steam account.

@raton

yes i know. I was saying the shay rumor isnt too far fetched. sorry i wasnt very clear.

@jexx

i think ill buy them at release now that im so invested and want to avoid having my initial impressions of the game influenced by others.

Heck, I might buy Unity twice. Even though I dont like paying for playstation plus, I have some new friends here I REALLY want to play online with. And I might be able to chalk up the extra cash to get it and the ps4 version of unity in addition to the pc version.

The reason im so stingy about the sub fees though is because I'm one of those people who'd be lucky to earn 20 bucks. So coughing up 60 a year for online access kinda rustles my jimmies. (yeah I just mentioned the job thing but thats like a first time ever for me)

so im glad I converted to PC. I think i'll save tons of money in the long run from sales. but Im willing to pay a large sum for AC since I love it so much :o.

When people say "pc optimization", do they refer to:

1. How well the game uses the possible graphic capabilities on pc to their fullest potential?

2. How low the required specs are for high settings in comparison to the graphic fidelity of the game? (People say watch dogs should not require as much amazing hardware as it calls for ultra for it to work on ultra)

3. How stable the framerate is?


Or all 3? Or 2 of the 3?

Ubisoft CEO, Yves Guillemot strengthened the rumors surrounding Comet at the 2nd day of E3 by saying that Assassin's Creed is not quite ready to leave last gen just yet. Of course, there was no Comet announcement in E3, which is a bit odd. Right now, the community still believes that an AC game is being developed for last gen and that Ubisoft avoided to announce it during E3, so that people do not mix the 2 games in their minds and marketing becomes difficult.

As reasonal and logic as it may sound, it still doesn't justify not giving the fans any word on the development of the PS3 installment (if there is going to be one, in the first place). I still don't know what Comet (or whatever the title may be) represents in the whole scheme of the series. I mean, is it Assassin's 4.5, that is, a Black Flag subchapter as Brotherhood and Revelations were subchapters to Assassin's 2? Or is it going to be simply a sort of prequel to Unity? Furthermore, I don't even know if a conventional game is going to come out, since there are countless interpretations to "(...) Assassin's Creed is not quite ready to leave last gen just yet". At least a statement was in order, at E3, but unfortunately, this sort of behavior does not surprise the least, in what regards Ubisoft.

Well, apparently there is. Check this out (http://kotaku.com/sources-assassins-creed-comet-will-let-you-play-as-a-t-1552929846).

If they're two different games, then Ubisoft is scr***** us fans again, because we'll have to keep two different consoles. Honestly, I didn't plan on buying my PS4 in a very near future, I was gonna wait until they optimized it even further, particularly in terms of size and weight (not to mention a price decrease). But I'm currently reconsidering my options, and I just might buy it this Autumn.

The news regarding AC Comet in Kotaku is 3 months old and it is probably the last news we had before they went silent on the subject - I suspect and speculate that the AC Comet will probably come into a digital form for streaming library since Sony and Microsoft are beta testing (for Sony by the end of this July 2014 month) new emulator for PS4 that let you play digital PS1/PS2/PS3 games by streaming them onto your console. I do not know about the Wii U but I honestly doubt 3rd party developers and especially UBI even care about it.(?)

On the other hand, for the same reason you mention above, I agree with your plan to wait for buying the news system (XBO and PS4), and honestly I doubt that ACU will make you really change your plan. Hopefully I am wrong....

They will release Comet on last gen and then a couple of months later it will be available to digitally download on PS4 and Xbone just like with Liberation HD. Ubisoft would not put Comet only on last gen when lots of next gen players would be more than happy to buy Comet, especially if its a sequel to Black Flag.

I totally agree. There is no reason for the game to be a last-generation exclusive, and so keep the fans that already bought a PS4 (and got rid of or sold their PS3), from enjoying the chapter. I would have been fine with a decision of ending the Assassin's run on the PS3, with Black Flag, as I would obviously buy Unity as soon as I would buy my PS4. I have the obvious rational understanding that evolution is unstoppable, and we have to move forward, and that is ok. But making two different games, is just another irrefutable evidence that Ubisoft is milking the series for all that it is worth.

I think it's going to be a new naval based IP set in the AC universe with minimal parkour elements and other notable differences so that they aren't too familiar - and that we are playing as a Templar this time but that the IP won't be Templar exclusive.

"Chokeslam"

I've heard otherwise; my sources say the leaked plot goes along these lines:

'Sifting through Sample 16's genetic material, Abstergo Entertainment stumbles across characters tailor-fit for their dastardly plan to exploit children with a simpler game intended primarily for handheld consoles: Brothers Giovanni and Mario race across an undisclosed location, trying to rescue Princess Toadstool Sforza from Templar Agents, who unleash an army of mutants upon the brothers to slow them down. Giovanni and Mario utilize a repertoire of hitherto unexplored assassin techniqes (mostly aerial assaults and projectiles), and as a first in the series, collectibles such as feathers etc. give them outfits with exciting new functions. (This wasn't possible in previous-gen hardware.) Parkour mechanics have been further streamlined, and navigation is now a matter of jumps and descents, handled by a single button.

The modern day component involves meeting with a woman who likes wearing really tight pants in a back alley on the way to school: She borrows your handheld, and as she tinkers with it, her spectacled companion tells bad jokes."

I know what you are talking about. I also felt awkward while engaging in fights with 4-5 enemies, it almost felt like I could not hit them at all. Assassin's 3 combat system was definitely more fluid.

I always remember one of Ginx's last statements on the Black Flag's review: "accept the fact that this is more a game about pirates, than it is about assassins, and you will enjoy the game". Bloody pirates! :mad:

http://www.gamespot.com/articles/primary-assassin-s-creed-development-duties-shift-to-different-ubisoft-studio/1100-6420888/

From Article:

Update: Ubisoft has issued a statement to GameSpot explaining why this move was made. "Quebec is taking on the role of lead studio for a future next-gen AC game because they've built up the experience and the talented teams to do so, thanks in part to their close work with Montreal on previous AC titles (from Brotherhood through Unity)," Ubisoft's Michael Burk tells us. "They're committed to bringing something new and creative to the franchise."

As it turns out, Montreal isn't permanently bowing out of the lead developer position for Assassin's Creed. "Montreal will continue to be a lead studio for other AC titles, and Montreal and Quebec will continue to collaborate with each other and with other Ubisoft studios on future games' development," Burk says. "That's key for making sure each Assassin's Creed title offers a fresh perspective, with new context, new stories and new characters, for players. Montreal is our largest studio and has plenty of creative capacity to focus on many of our biggest brands, including Assassin's Creed, Far Cry, Rainbow Six, Watch Dogs and more."

One of the things I'm most curious about is certainly whether they're going to use the combat/stealth/parkour improvements from Unity or not. Alex Amancio said Unity was impossible to do on last gen consoles, but that could be related to AI, the massive crowds and graphics.

I wouldn't be against some naval gameplay, since the system was developed and just using it for one game (and the amount there was on AC3) would be kind of a waste, but another 60% land - 40% naval game would be too much.

For the most part.....I hope AC:Comet features Connor and Esosa and whatever their journey may bring them. I personally want an ending/ Closure for Connor's Character as I feel like he's the most UNDERRATED ASSASSIN in the whole series. Perhaps if they do, I would jump for joy as I find him the most complex out of every other Assassin. ( Except Altair.....my favorite) And Aveline, what about her you guys!? I know everyone argues and throws a fit about Connor, but what not show our only female assassin some love.......Hm? :D

One of the things I'm most curious about is certainly whether they're going to use the combat/stealth/parkour improvements from Unity or not. Alex Amancio said Unity was impossible to do on last gen consoles, but that could be related to AI, the massive crowds and graphics.

I wouldn't be against some naval gameplay, since the system was developed and just using it for one game (and the amount there was on AC3) would be kind of a waste, but another 60% land - 40% naval game would be too much.
I mean, stuff like the stealth mode and whatnot wouldn't be impossible. it's an evolution of the corner-cover system and stalking zones, which worked on last-gen. what's impossible on next-gen is the kind of crowd sizes/AI counts, visuals, and city size + level of explorability.

I expect it to use many of the same systems as Unity, and also use the naval stuff to differentiate itself and make up for the things it lacks in comparison to Unity. Some good game design comes for constraints, I think Liberation had a lot of interesting gameplay experiments in it. I'll definitely pick it up if it seems promising.

EDIT: has anyone made a thread about suggestions for making Connor more appealing to the people who dislike him if they introduce him again? One of the most obvious things that I thought of was changing the way his voice actor delivers the lines a little bit. I loved the way Connor talked, as it really made him feel believable as someone whose first language was not english, but was determined to get all his thoughts across. (thus the somewhat measured and careful way each word was spoken)

But since presumably some time would have passed if we see him again, the idea could be that through spending much more time around english speakers and becoming less of a desperate and vengeful character, he's got a more relaxed and fluent way of speaking that might be seen as more relatable, and maybe even leads to imitating accents at times to pass as a Spaniard, as Achilles suggested when he gave him is new name. That last part could tie into giving him more opportunities to be playful and humorous. Connor does have a sense of humor, but he's under so much intense stress and in such high pressure situations in most of AC3, he rarely gets a chance to show that side of him. A less constantly intense story that allows for a mission where you dress up as a spanish diplomat to infliltrate a party could, like the minstrel mission in revelations, allow for a bit more levity.

And just in general allowing Connor to not have to be turned up to intensity level 11 most of the time. giving him more people that he can have pleasant or playful interactions with, (such as the woman who becomes his wife/partner) specific Assassin recruits who have a role in the story, since they're not just side mission characters now, and contacts from various organizations that his order is working with.

Just in general giving people more overt ways to connect with him on the main path, since in AC3 a lot of the lighter tone was off in the side missions, which were de-emphasized in a way, meaning a lot of people missed out on that stuff, which I think is kinda important to appreciating Connor as a character (also that important death scene that you'll never see if you just do the main missions)

People may be really reductive in their criticism of Connor, but what really happened is they, for whatever reason, missed what many of us found interesting about him. The biggest complaints I've seen were "the voice sounds dumb and stereotypical", (which is really unfortunate, since apparently native americans have been mocked so much that people see anything that sounds too authentic as being exploitative), "he's totally bland and humorless", (which obviously ties into the main path being about him in very focused, intense situations with so much on the line and so many personal tensions at play, and the side missions mostly filling out the lighter side of his life), and then finally just the opinion that his story doesn't have much variety, which leads me to think that a romance subplot would be a great complication, as he foils Templar plots, deals with the suspect aspects of a free America, and considers the prospect of finally settling down. (the idea of Connor as a grizzled Assassin veteran makes me real happy)

You'll pick up Comet or Liberation?

I hope Comet has Unity's stealth and combat and parkour improvements, but I sort of doubt that it will. We'll see though. I'm still hoping Comet is Connor/Aveline :P

I mean, Liberation had all of AC3's movement options and more, and it was on Vita. I'm not super worried.

I'm interested how they would make the social stealth work with the smaller crowds though. Also how they would adapt those mechanics to the AnvilNext engine since Unity is apparently using a more advanced version.

I mean, Liberation was using the AnvilNext engine, just extremely toned down.

Maybe they could make Comet with multiple protagonists like GTA5. Not sure how they'd explain it with the Animus though. They could have the game star Connor, Aveline and Adewale's grandson Eseosa. This game could wrap up their storylines. That way there is a connor sequel and aveline sequel in one.

Comet's gameplay will probably just be heaps of random **** that they've wanted to put in previous games but would be unsure of the reaction.

I just thought of something: If Comet exists how on Earth are they going to do modern day across two games? Will 'we' be doing two different things at different places or will the two be connected?

Questions, questions...

And for the love of Jaysus, if it exists just announce it already you're taking too long. :p

Who was also supposed to be 'us'. Oh but he's not really 'us' - the guy in Unity, that's really us this time. :rolleyes:

If it is the AC4 dude and he's not supposed to be the player this time, at least let him talk a little, even if the dialogue is just meaningless and reactionary. I hate silent protagonists.

Imagine me, Yves, standing in front of a crowd being not only CEO and Person of the Year but Character of the Year too.

I'll announce it next week if I get some suspicious brown paper bags.

I agree heavily with this.......knock three birds with stone. Seems like a fairly exchange. Can't help you on the animus thing though.....lol

Yves I have an idea! Why don't you charge DLC for people to play as you?!
