When I got AC3 and discovered there was no ambient music I was pretty upset. For me it made the game really boring to just hang around and explore. Of course they had a somewhat good reason as they thought it would might be break the immersion when in the frontier. Thankfully it made a return in AC4 but I still want to make sure we definitely are getting it this time again. It adds so much to the game and at least for me make or break a game.

I surely hope so.

They missed that opportunity in AC3 so I doubt they will exclude that in a big game like Unity.

To him , it is.

AC III´s atmosphere felt full, void and even dead at times thanks to the lack of music.

I personally enjoyed Venice and The Frontier equally.

But that's only because how they look Visually...

I personally don't mind the Music, but as long as it's not overly dramatic as I'm walking down the street or something.

I agree about the cities to an extent, but the Frontier was great.

I like ambient music. I want it back because I just free-roam a lot of times and I really liked it in AC4.

Man, I wish the final game was like that. Ambient music! Random events! Non-broken detection! Bow that doesn't alert every guard within 2 miles!

Of course it matters, ambient music helped set the tone and atmosphere of these games. Every AC game apart from III had ambient music and I couldn't imagine playing and enjoying them even half as much without it. AC3's cities were so devoid of any charm or soul because it deviated from convention and scrapped arguably the most crucial pieces of music altogether.

I would love to have experienced the atmosphere in the demo posted on the previous page.

Normally I'd like an area for it's landmarks, not the music but whatever. ;)

I'll enjoy paris either way.

I remember they played the demo at several events and one or more recruits froze in that exact same spot every time, lol.

Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE ACIII more than ACIV and probably more than Unity as well. But what made them drop all these beautiful features?

Lack of time. Except for ambient music maybe, seems like that was a conscious decision for some reason.

I never noticed ambient music until people pointed it out.

It has never been a problem for me in any game, including AC3.

AC3 was your first game though, correct? You didn't have an expectation that there would be ambient music, whereas the people who played the series from the beginning had always had ambient music so it was weird to suddenly not have it.
