why would you want a templar game rather than a connor/aveline game?

roostersrule2
07-10-2014, 06:38 PM
Now that I think of it, it's more and more likely this is a Connor game.

I think it will have a short dev time, too short to spend a lot of time on a new character and drastic new settings.

I don't care what it is I'll play it, more AC is usually a plus for me.

Not really.

I just want me some templar booty. ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

@rooster

the rumored shay game has recycled gameplay like ship sailing and locations like boston.

AND recycled characters like Adewale and Haytham.

I doubt it would be a lot of work to have that rumor come true :p

I think Shay will die tragically if he is real tho. I mean what other explanation can there be for him not being in AC3? He went on a grand adventure somewhere else?

good thing about this last gen game is less people will likely play it so they can focus more on stuff casual players might not care about like the modern day and deep narrative.

Last gen has like 10 times the amount of consoles current-gen has, so realistically it should sell more then Unity, it could be cross-gen too.

I feel as if it'll be either this Shay dude or Connor as the historical protag, with the AC4 MD guy as the MD protag.

It's not because of that, it's just that this game already screams quick cash in. You know with it apperantly coming out this year, yet not having been announced yet and it being only on last gen consoles which will probably result in a lower budget.

No way Ubi would release two games this year to compensate for no games next year, actually because we're getting a second game this year it all but confirms the existence of a 2015 AC. The second game this year would just be a waste of resources then, they would make less money. If they wanted to release two games across two years they'd do it one in each year not two in one year, none in the other.

Hmm. Still, I don't think there'll be a game in 2015 unless it's Comet. I was thinking that they didn't have enough time to properly develop a next-gen Connor sequel for 2014, I wasn't really thinking that they would have been in the development of a non-Connor game since 2011.

With 10 studios being thrown at the thing, I'd argue otherwise. Next Years title is already in production, they already have the engine in place for it they just need the assets, story ect which can be worked on at the same time and afterwards in a sense. IE the Artists who worked on Unity might have finished there job and moved on for example.

With 10 studios and the manpower it offers, I'd guess at least five games are currently in some stage of development.

Can't believe I'm gonna say this, but I'm with Rooster on this note.

It's Connor's only chance. Let's be realistic here, if Connor had a game on next gen consoles... no one is going to be excited or keen on buying it. This is a perfect opportunity, last gen is the way to go. It might sound a bit corny, but if there is a character named Shay... we might see the game on his perspective and then Connor's, just like Altair in ACR and Haytham in AC3.

I am skeptical of the likelihood of another Connor game. And while I would be happy to be proven wrong, I like Ubi's new approach of introducing a new protagonist with each game

Am i the only one who doesn't want 2 different assassins creed games? it's sound amazing and all...(i will probably pre order both) but we will all be comparing both of them in the end. Worst case scenario would be if the last gen game is actually better then the next gen (i really doubt that) but it's a possibility...why can't we just concentrate on one assassins creed game? why do we need 2? i like just following one story each year....

Me thinks the current gen AC games are made to cater to the mass market and the last gen ones that get less attention will be catering to more hardcore fans.

Sure, they'll be compared, but they're meant for two different audiences I think.

Ofc the hardcore fans will get both, but the last gen will probably have more plot progression in MD and deep connecting narrative.

That's my theory anyway.

oh please don't say that...i hope it's the complete opposite lol...i want a DEEP connecting narrative on the next gen not last gen...i hope the last gen title just fills in a few gaps...i want Unity to be the real deal...i want it to feel like AC2 again where we get so many mind f**ks...and I HOPE....that Unity has a much bigger cliff hanger of an ending then AC4's. Not that i don't like AC4's ending...i just prefer the cliff hangers because then you really can't wait for the next game!

JustPlainQuirky
07-10-2014, 10:34 PM
I feel Ubi doesn't want to alienate its casual market so it's being really ambiguous with its modern day plot.

Which sucks for many of us, but I see where they're coming from if that's the case.

hopefully the inevitable subtle hints of an evil threat in MD or something actually has some payoff a few games from now...

harsab

Good point...but the game shouldn't have a story line where we have to get it to understand what's going in the AC world...just like Liberation...i felt the story in that wasn't deep enough for AC fan's to purchase...just something to keep Vita players busy.

JustPlainQuirky

But Arkham Origins was pretty good. Not as good as Asylum or City, but a definite 8 which is a good game.

That and to a new Arkham player it'd probably be brilliant with no comparisons to Asylum and City. If the new last gen AC is the AC version of that it'd be exactly what lots want

rebelguy007

If it will be like that I think I will do what I did with Revelations and just wait for a major price drop.

It's just I don't see the value in buying AC4 once again just with a different paint job.

If it's fun eh why not? I'd judge it on how much fun it is, new additions, gameplay and story. If the story, location and settings and characters etc. are fun who cares if it's AC4 style?

07-11-2014, 10:47 AM
Hey all!
I read carefully the whole thread and you guys bring up good points on several things.
First of all, I also believe that the transition to the "next/current gen" hasn't been made yet by the bulk of the playerbase. That is the main reason AC Unity is coming.
Keep in mind that the PS3 to PS4 upgrade is not a cheap one and it's definitely not as big as it was back then when we went from PS2 to PS3. Sure Unity looks amazing with it's graphics, the new parkour mechanisms and the big crowds on the Parisian streets but you can't sell a next gen console to the bulk of the players just because you put a crouch button or because the npc's are acting more natural.

On the post American Revolution rumor: I don't believe a Shay or Connor or even Aveline will be the protagonists of Comet simply because thy had their time to shine and frankly, the bulk of the fanbase did not receive them wholeheartedly as they did with Altär or Ezio or even Edward! So since they are catering to the masses with Comet they need something compelling!

On the Ancient Rome rumor: I find it plausible for a few reasons, bear with me :)
1. Jade Raymond said that Ubi is working closely with historians that specialize in French Revolution and Julius Cesar's Rome. And that was before anything official was announced for Unity.

2. Ancient Rome is a perfect setting for a curtain call / encore Assassin's Creed for PS3/X360 simply because it can utilize the map of AC Brotherhood save the textures of the environment, PLUS we are talking about an era where Black Flag gameplay can be justified. Not so much stealth but more open combat. And AC 4 stealth is adequate for that time period (eavesdropping, stealth assassinations etc) In Ancient Rome Unity mechanics don't make much sense (new parkour etc)

3. I'm just gonna put my theory out there as food for thought. What if Comet is a mainly Modern Day game starring -wait for it- Cross when he was converted to the Templars. We can relive his Russian ancestor memories (the name slips my tongue right now) but also we could have modest day when he was part of the purge of the Assassin clusters dated during the first AC game as well as when he was sent to Rome to recover the apple and in Egypt to capture Desmond's father in the museum?

Think about it assassins :)

Well if it is gonna be mostly re used assets it will probably not add much new. Sure it might be fun, but money don't grow on trees y'know? I'd rather save the money for a PS4 and Unity.

This is the most depressing thing I have ever read. Somebody over at Ubitysoft needs to write an AC where something actually happens on the MD. Because, lets be honest--I'll always play AC, but that's because I'm a big old history nerd and it's total wish fulfillment for me. But sooner or later, we need to move the friggin story forward. Seems like every game has been "Look, a MacGuffin-use your ancestors' memories to locate said MacGuffin. Now go find it in the Modern Day. Oh, wait, said MacGuffin is made everything worse/doesn't help us/is immediately forgotten by the plot. Oh, and by the way, the protagonist is dead and now you're just some dude at a computer."

AccesstheAnimus Got their hands on that photo and this is their analysis:

A picture from Italian retailer "Euronics" has leaked into the web. The picture represents an advertisement for the preorder of "AC Comet" in which it's possible to see Woodes Rogers and Peter Chamberlaine .

There are, however, hints that make us think that this could be a fake.

The picture comes from AC4 and you can find it at this link (http://i.imgur.com/bDqLSL7.jpg). We hardly believe that the front image for a new game could be a screenshot from a previous game.
In addition to this, the AC Comet logo does not show the typical "®" next to the "Creed" word and it does not hold by the perpsective of the picture itself. Also the "AC Comet" logo that can be seen in the picture has been recently uploaded to the AC Wikia (http://img3.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20140710222420/assassinscreed/images/8/81/Ac_comet-720x427.jpg)

It is also not clear if the release date in the picture (October 28th) is related to AC Unity, as it should be, or if it is referred to Comet too.
