Well well, seems like Ubisoft having some fun with us. There's a website where you can customize your own Assassin, note that the winner is gonna see his custom appear on the next ACU reveal or something, like publicity. Anyway, I found this extremely amusing that even after all the polemic about no playable women being in ACU (and mostly no girls in any Ubisoft franchise) to propose this kind of min-game.

But, I have a little idea that could turn out really intersting. How about we manage to make a 'girly' Arno to win the competition. By that I mean an Arno with purple and white robes or at an extreme something pink. The point of all this would be to send a message to Ubisoft. That we do not forget and, by the same way, that we aren't the no-brain Ubi' think we are. And how funny would it be to see Ubisoft expose his so charismatic and manly character dressed as a women. I'm not saying that dressing like a women or women are funny though, don't misinterpret.

Here's the site> http://www.acunity-unite.com/ (oh yeah it only works in Europe and it's bugged as hell but still, most of you should manage to get trough)

Do your thing, community !

Since I cant see the website, can someone post a screenshot of it?

Do you really get to design a character or is it essentially picking different outfit pieces and matching them together?

I mean if they already have the different parts they might as well include all of them and let us mash them in-game, no?

It actually worked for me for like 5 minutes for some reason then failed. All it is is choosing different color to same outfit and changing the pattern..and the skin tone of arno for some reason..

+ No, they had no reason to not incorporate a female character, it's either because they were too lazy (which wouldn't be a first) or because we told them not to do so. You simply cannot say they couldn't make it. It's Ubisoft we are talking here, and Assassin's Creed is one of the biggest series in the game industries, hundreds of people works on it everyday and you're saying they couldn't take a week to put some animation and voice over ? Think about it.

Well if they can change Arno's skin color (which IMO is weird considering Arno is supposed to be a historical dude with what I would imagine a set skin color, eye color, and hair color), then I don't see why they cant change his sex too lol.

I guess the animus didnt pick up on his details or someone hacked it for their own amusement? :rolleyes:

would also explain the "tough descision" you have to make in the end of Unity. Historically there should be one "true" option but if the animus didnt pick up on it, i guess it's up to the player to decide.

Jesus...

EVERYONE is playing as Arno. When you enter co-op, the other Assassins are just other player's Arnos with some random face superimposed over them for our benefit. They did it this way so that you could keep all of your customization items exactly as-is from the singleplayer. They could have made random female skins to superimpose over the other players, but what the hell would be the point in that? Eye candy? That wouldn't be a playable woman, it would be a playable Arno with a female skin slapped over it that only your friends could see. When you look at the promo art, you aren't looking at four male characters while the devs "lazily" decided not to make at least one female; you're looking at one male character customized four different ways.

If you want a female Assassin in the next game (I do, Shao Jun FTW) then that's all well and good. Just stop whining about this non-issue of no female co-op characters in Unity. If the next game stars a woman, then logically all the co-op characters will be women.

Depends on how the game ends. If it's a conclusion thant they are no problem with multiple past endings since the effect of the Present would be definitive. But if there is continuous episodes after this one, you kinda have a broken narrative. That's what happened with inFAMOUS...

Okay, why the hell did they choose to keep the same character for both single player and multiplayer ? Was it THAT hard to have a seamless transition between your SP and MP ? Look at GTA V for instance, you have your 3 SP characters (which are all men...) that you can customize all you want and you have you MP character that you can also customize all you want with the sex, hair color, face (±), race, height you want ! And nobody gave a single f... about the 'unity' of the transition, which is also heavy nothing to justifie keeping the same SP and MP character. Was it THAT hard to do the same for ACU ? WORSE, The_Division proposes you to create your character (sex, color, etc) in MP, why can't UbiMontreal do what every other single game company does ?

Plus, it's a narratively broken idea. It is technically impossible for the Animus to have four time the same ancestor at the same place, wait, screw the Animus, YOU cannot be at four places at the same time ! So no, the whole «we are all Arno» thing does not work, in any imaginable way, it just doesn't work as a whole. Sure from your point of view it will, but this implies they're are four universe where eveyrone is connected and plays on one game, it's just broken ! Eveyrthing was doing so well with the old method, and it could've worked now, but no, they decided to go crazy on a baseless idea and here we are finding ourselves with no female character while the past 4 games had some in the MP... brilliant.

It's like Watch_Dogs and Far Cry 4. You always see yourself as the protagonist. The other co-op players have the faces of other Assassins replacing Arno's face, but the customization options that they have stay the same.

Idiot.


Idiot.



At this point, everyone plays as Arno, so the people wanting to have a female assassin would just be looking at someone else has has boobs. For them to let you actually choose to be a woman, it would break out the seamless factor completely..because, well...you MAGICALLY CHANGE INTO A WOMAN.

Not to mention how they would have to introduce story and character backstories for all the assassins you could choose from if they went that route.

Basically, they went the watch dogs route early on in the game because they want to focus mostly on the actual game, not creating 3 extra characters and backstories that would suffocate dev time and brea the seamlessness.

From a narrative perspective..who the hell cares? They probably won't even include explanation of co op in the story anyway. The co op players will likely just represent assassin recruits that help arno, and no one but us knows they are actual players.

I REALLY want to hear your rebuttal to this: How the HELL can the game be seamless from MALE SINGLEPLAYER to FEMALE multiplayer? How?


Christ, you'd think that if a girl like me would be able to get the hell over myself and accept how the game is, guys could do the same.

I actually think the animus will be a game console called Helix, and the co-op will be actual un-universe co-op, so it makes sense.

if you're bringing GTA V into it, then you'd compare to actual competitive MP, ACB ACR, AC III, AC IV...those all had females and customization for them

The reason is that the Multiplayer is not a different mode. You use your Arno to go to some place, activate the Co-Op-Mission, leave the place with your new buddies and go all crazy.

@Adam

You say that everyone playing as Arno is technically impossible due to animus constraints and then you propose ubi allow us to make our own character in the animus (a machine that allows you to relive the memories of EXISTING people) ?

And the GTAV comparison does not work, as GTA online is essentially a game on it's own with separate missions, activities etc. whereas Unity only has one type of Co-op mission. Creating a separate game mode for one chain of side missions is not a good decision if you can find a way to make it work seamlessly. Regarding the whole 'How can everyone play as Arno?' well we'll just have to wait for the game to be released.

Ubisoft did not make co-op work this way just so people couldn't play as a female, as you said they had no problem including them in MP. The decision to have everyone be Arno and have the co-op missions be accessible through one mode - the single player - is a design one. Not a decision made so you cannot play as the race or gender you want.

It's a bad idea, always been, always will be. It's like they are thinking we always want to be the protagonist, like we are all selfish babies who always want to be player 1. It's all marketing, because think about it, either than restriction, what do you gain from this ? Do you really care about a 100% seamless transition between SP and MP ? Does it annoys you to play a character other than Arno or Aiden ? Does it annoys you to have a possibility to fully create your character ? Is it too much stress ?

I feel they are deciding what's good and what's not for the player...instead of actually asking the player. I hate this all ''we know what's good for you'' attitude.

You get to keep all of your outfit elements and upgrades. THAT is why they're doing it, as I said earlier; so everybody could still be playing as their fully upgraded Arno. "We know what's good for you?" They're the ones making the bloody game, fella. You don't like the choices they made, don't play it.

"How can single player to multiplayer be seamless if you change from a man to a woman?"

@Adam

You say that everyone playing as Arno is technically impossible due to animus constraints and then you propose ubi allow us to make our own character in the animus (a machine that allows you to relive the memories of EXISTING people) ?

It's already a more realistic and concrete approach than having everyone playing the same person.


And the GTAV comparison does not work, as GTA online is essentially a game on it's own with separate missions, activities etc. whereas Unity only has one type of Co-op mission. Creating a separate game mode for one chain of side missions is not a good decision if you can find a way to make it work seamlessly. Regarding the whole 'How can everyone play as Arno?' well we'll just have to wait for the game to be released.

I am concious it is not the same type of MP. But the point stands, GTA V offers a seamless all in one SP-MP transition without having to go trough a menu (which seems to be the big deal here). Sure it launches you a new 'game', but would work in the AC world as well, since the point of the operation is simply to propose the MP at the press of a button.


Ubisoft did not make co-op work this way just so people couldn't play as a female, as you said they had no problem including them in MP. The decision to have everyone be Arno and have the co-op missions be accessible through one mode - the single player - is a design one. Not a decision made so you cannot play as the race or gender you want.

http://jezebel.com/making-female-characters-is-too-hard-says-assassins-cr-1589392607

Definetely a design option. Thing is, having the MP trough the SP can work. You take Arno to a hub, press the interaction button, wouhou Animus effect, matchmaking, start with your customized character and have fun. You want to quit, go to a hub, press the interaction button, wouhou animus effect, boum, you are Arno again on SP. It doesn't change anthing to the actual 'design', it just permits you to have your own fully customized Assassin. It's that simple.

Before Adam says something else stupid again, I would like him to answer my question. Because this is basically the biggest reason why they didn't do female assassins or whatever.

"How can single player to multiplayer be seamless if you change from a man to a woman?"

Lol don't bring up GTA5 either. The character switching was not seamless. If it were seamless it would change to the next character the exact instant you choose to..instead you float up in the loading screen sky for 10-15 seconds.

Because you think the ACU transition won't take any loading whatsoever ? No matchmaking, no connexion to the servers, no mission preparation ? You are truly naive.

To your question> « Helix contains a databse of more than five thousands memories, this means you can switch from one ancestor to another in an instant. Sure Now we concentrate or Arno's life, but if you want to check in other Assassins as well, do as you want. »

If the game is carrying my progress and bringing that into co-op, I'm doing all that as Arno. Suddenly playing as a different character, even if all my progress was there, would be flawed as it would have me change into a character I have not played as yet still somehow retain my progress. And yes, the decision to have everyone play as Arno is a design decision, what Amancio said was it would be too much work to include female avatars that would appear to your friends whilst you were always playing as Arno, and since you can't even play as them and can only see them by chance (the assassin skins your friends see are randomised) then if creating these female avatars, and adjusting costumes to fit females and adding in female VO's was putting a strain on development then that is absolutely a valid excuse.

One VERY important thing to understand about the Unity co-op feature is that in-universe we do NOT relive memories together with Animus users. The other players, they're just Assassins Arno went on a mission with, nobody is looking through their memories, they're just there in the past. Well, at least that's my understanding of it from everything that was said. But, even if they are other Animus users, I don't see how us still being Arno doesn't make sense, because, well, you know... relative point of view and all that. Perspective.

It's quite hilarious how one of the most complex features, that being a seamless drop-in/drop-out co-op multiplayer (which, btw, IS technically possible, it's just hard, but a next gen game might just do it, we don't have all the details on how the connectivity works) that's supposed to increase immersiveness while bringing online connectivity in the same mode is criticized for lack of immersiveness and not being a separate mode.

The point of being seamless is simply to not having the player quit the game session. That is all. I really don't see why you are talking about the character themselves changing, it's not an issue since it doesn't require you to quit your SP game session. I don't get you, I really don't. Because for you having a seamless change is...not to change ? How does that make any sense ?

Farlander, I'm actually pretty sure that the co-op players are animus users.

Well, even if they are, it still makes sense, because perspective. From our perspective they're reliving memories of other people and we're still reliving Arno. Like, I really don't get the fuss about 'why we're still playing Arno in co-op that's stupid everybody can't be Arno' when it's essentially what's been happening in single-player games for years. Everybody is Desmond, everybody is Link, everybody is Nico, etc., but when online connectivity is integrated together with single-player mode, suddenly everybody can't be Arno :D It's funny.

Anyway, on an unrelated side-note, from technical stand-point taverns are going to ease up things a lot. We know that taverns are social hubs and we connect to other players through them. So it's not like anyone can connect to anyone anywhere from the map, there are fixed entry points, but thanks to those there don't have to be any loading screens or teleportations or lots of other stuff.

He was referring to randomised avatars, though. There would be no playable females, we'd all play as Arno, just randomised avatars would be female. They already have this in Watch_Dogs, where other players can be randomly female as well.

Watch_Dogs doesn't have such an intricate parkour or combat system though in terms of animations (due to simplicity of parkour and range-based combat), so no need to worry about how different female/male proportions are and everything and what bugs it could lead to (at least, not to the same extent as with AC). Also they have stock models without customization, so no need to worry about how different equipment sits and looks either (plus, the different equipment would all have to be redesigned/remade for another model).

Plus we don't know if other avatars are voiced in cutscenes in co-op missions if there are any, but if that's the case, that's also an issue.

Btw, what Jonathan Cooper said about being able to apply male animations to female in a matter of a few days is technically true. What he didn't say though (which is surprising for me as he did an amazing job for AC3 and surely knows about this) is how unpolished it would be and look in combination with everything else (and on its own as well).

They didn't want to have a separate co-op character because they wanted the co-op gameplay to be just like the SP. Instead of having a mode that carried literally nothing over from the SP like the previous MP modes, they made it this way so that you could transfer straight to co-op without losing your Arno customization/gear. Because nobody wants to have to level up their co-op character separately from Arno (that would be tedious and unless you leveled them exactly like Arno the gameplay wouldn't match up between modes) and it wouldn't make sense if your Arno customization magically transferred over to another unrelated co-op character.

Like Ezio 'magically' transferred his ablities to Desmond ?

I don't see why they couldn't at least give a choice. 'Do you want to create your own character. Yes/ No' People on No sees their character being Arno (if multiple No people are together than the face is changed between them) and people saying Yes can play their own character. Everyone happy /

He was referring to randomised avatars, though. There would be no playable females, we'd all play as Arno, just randomised avatars would be female. They already have this in Watch_Dogs, where other players can be randomly female as well.

Watch_Dogs doesn't have such an intricate parkour or combat system though in terms of animations (due to simplicity of parkour and range-based combat), so no need to worry about how different female/male proportions are and everything and what bugs it could lead to. Also they have stock models without customization, so no need to worry about how different equipment sits and looks either (plus, the different equipment would all have to be redesigned/remade for another model).

Plus we don't know if other avatars are voiced in cutscenes in co-op missions if there are any, but if that's the case, that's also an issue.

Btw, what Jonathan Cooper said about being able to apply male animations to female in a matter of a few days is technically true. What he didn't say though (which is surprising for me as he did an amazing job for AC3 and surely knows about this) is how unpolished it would be and look in combination with everything else (and on its own as well).

Well he didn't specify that they were never going for playable female Assassin's. He should have just explained the 'everyone is Arno' model and specify that they never intended for females to be playable because that wouldn't work in design context.

The way he answered it makes it look like they couldn't be bothered to create female playable characters but included male ones, hence the controversy. Amancio's miffed response is to blame for the backlash as well - although I mostly put the blame on irrational and irresponsible 'journalists'.

There's a duel system but it seems very inefficient as it makes you choose between two random outfits (and when you vote for one, it gives you another choice, and etc. and etc.), and there's probably like at least a thousand outfits out there, no way to get lots of views from strangers.

+ No, they had no reason to not incorporate a female character, it's either because they were too lazy (which wouldn't be a first) or because we told them not to do so. You simply cannot say they couldn't make it. It's Ubisoft we are talking here, and Assassin's Creed is one of the biggest series in the game industries, hundreds of people works on it everyday and you're saying they couldn't take a week to put some animation and voice over ?

1) I highly doubt this is the final customization tool. It's a PR widget like many before it.

2) We will not be able to change Arno's skin tone. He is French & Austrian. The ethnicity of his murdered father will not be changing based on the player's whim.

3) To all the desperately confused, seamless transition means you, as Arno, never leave the session. "Entering" a co-op mission appears to you as though other assassins have just walked into your game. This is the same of each of them--they see you appear in their Arno's world. Think about how W_D multiplayer works, and then remove the loading screen. For this reason, it doesn't make sense to let you customize Arno's physical appearance or gender. While you will appear to other players as one of the randomized (or possibly secondary character) assassins, you are still, in appearance and in canon, Arno throughout the entirety of your play session.

Also posting the same thing, over and over - is not going to make it happen..


I suggest people wait and see the game's customisation options - since until we see those - anything is just guesswork.

Yes and we have bared witness to your "wonders" quite enough..like more than ten times,and we have cleared it up..more than ten times, so shut it and stop mentioning it. Stop derailing my thread.


How are you still here lol. It is so unbelievably obvious that you are a troll, not to mention you basically admitted to having a duplicate/separate account, so you should literally be gone. Consider it a blessing of mercy from the forum Gods and just start fresh with the gift you have been given,and by start fresh I means stop doing what you do.

I was trying to access the Paris thing by being creative and changing the url and ended up on a very curious "404 page".
Anyway, on one of the entries, the index one, there is one interesting comment! XD

That's a little scary. But that's cause I'm reading it as if it was written by Abstergo. :p Nice find though.
