Why not?

In Nikolai you have a very interesting character that in my opinion deserves to be put in the spotlight. What do I mean by this? Well, to have his story told in the most amazing way, a console videogame (I also mean PC of course).

The Fall was positively reviewed, or even critically acclaimed some people would say, for its great narrative and surprising plots. I can only imagine myself enjoying an AC game with this kind of narrative while also exploring the “unexplored” parts that were left out in the comic. Besides this, the Russia setup seems like a fantastic opportunity to explore the borderline between an old fashioned empire vs. the new world…this change, this conflict between two different worlds could be a really interesting element for the whole story. Finally, Nikolai is a really interesting character who seems to be very conflicted between his family and his duty, while also showing an assassin which is struggling to feel like he is good at what he does, feeling like he failed.

I can really imagine myself as an assassins riding a horse to board a train and kill my target…this would be the perfect opportunity to mix the formula with some modern elements without abandoning the historic thing.

Also, a modern day plot? Well, what could be better than playing the story of Daniel Cross and how he (SPOILER) ultimately killed the Mentor.

If you have not read The Fall, you should…I hope you use this thread not only to (hopefully) voice your support for such a videogame but also to show some appreciation to this Russian assassin.

Feel free to share any ideas, say why you like or not like the idea or just show some love for Nikolai Orelov.

Woah woah woah. Slow down there buddy.

Let's focus on finishing the stories of already established videogame characters like Connor and Aveline before we worry about spin-off novel characters.

But yes I would love to see a Nikolai game in the future.

His Future?

He was shot in the face by those he called "brother".

I would if it was free and online.

But it's not.

So here we are.

I would rather have a game as Nikolai's son, Innokenti.

That's a story that needs to be continued.

Nikolai was Russian and Russians are white, so, anything's possible for him.

I'm not sure about Innokenti though... If I remember correctly he was in the States by the end of the story. Would be more fun to play as Orelov in Russia imo

yea but we already know the whole story of Nikolai. I don't really think that we need a game for something that's already a visual interpretation.

I would love a game in Moscow though.

@Jexx.

Ah, Agreed... Russia would be great. ;)

Sorry, not Nikolai though.

Everyone remember that theory about that guy awhile ago?

EVERYONE thought that was the next game, but none.

That Great Fall thing? That was a pretty obvious fake.

Anyway, no, I'm not dying for a Nikolai game since we've already seen most of his story. Nor a Kenya one, considering by the time he grew up to a suitable age for a playable character, we'd be looking at a game in 1940s America. Or worse, WWII. No freaking thank you. Another comic, sure, but definitely not a game.

Though I'm certainly not opposed to visiting Russia in an earlier time period. As long as two things are certain; they manage to make snow awesome rather than tedious like it was in AC3, and they give the protagonist a mustache just as epic as Nikolai's :p

Kenya's story was left very open, though. In any case, he didn't become an Assassin nor he'll become one, but it would be good to know what happened with him later on.

No, Great Fall....i meant person in Russia who I forget his name.

Samuel Fey, I think? Or something else...idk.

Yeah, Sam Fey was supposed to be in the British Industrial Revolution.

I Know I'm thinking about somebody....

There were rumors about him having connections with Nikolai's story and his POE.

No, AC already has the First Civ. We don't need aliens involved.

Nikolai's story was indeed already told in the comic but that is kind of the point.

First, to relive the comic.

Second, there are a lot of gaps between certain moments in the comics that would be nice to have filled with a compelling story.

Third, you could also do the whole introduction to the character thing...how did Nikolai becomes what he is in the comic.


Woah woah woah. Slow down there buddy.

Let's focus on finishing the stories of already established videogame characters like Connor and Aveline before we worry about spin-off novel characters.

But yes I would love to see a Nikolai game in the future.

Come on my friend...if they can work in two game in the same year they can also develop two/three stories at the same time ;)

I actually would not even mind if they just go ahead and use the same engine from Black Flag for the Nikolai game...AC: The Fall (videogame), hope they eventually make it happen!

Why would you say that? If there is something that AC rarely does (if at all) is completely siding with one idea, religion or culture. You always end up killing people from basically every possible side.

He really needs his own game. I don't do comics, and I like games, and he seems interesting, and we can find out more about Daniel

Edit; Oh yeah.. Daniels dead.

And india one starring Arbaaz Mir

I wonder when they will do a new comic.

Same here, I read the comics but I would really love a videogame experience for this story. Especially Modern Day...Modern Day with Daniel (doing him right and not a la AC3 of course) would be pretty damn cool.

Maybe they can do the "Intro" in Chronicles and then the 3D game :P

Probably not gonna happen but I would really love the idea.

If they make a game it should be telltale style, fitting with comic.

But you gotta admit Nikolai and the Russian Revolution both have HUGE potential.

Patience Gibbs doesn't have any potential.
I hope to see the game set in Russia one day though.
