Yes indeed, though the Gamescom build as I am now calling it looks a tad bit worse lighting and texture wise.

The crowds in the sneak peek trailer were clearly pre rendered though. I noticed it the first time I saw the trailer in march.

They looked just a tad bit too smooth to be gameplay.

Indeed it's probably the best representation I have seen of Notre Dame in a video game. It's just too bad they modelled it after how it looks today as opposed to before the renovation in the 1850's.

That is how it should have looked during the 1790's (with a little less dirt perhaps).

The Notre Dame "dirtiest" could just be ToD.

Also, the season pass trailer either had really old build footage due to long Arno robe, or we really can choose length. Either way I'm not bothered but it was odd to see the full robe again. Unless they made it long again due to fan feedback?

Judging by the dark focus and Arno's clothes in the season pass trailer is so worn out. I'd say Elise is dead(why his cloths is worn out), his villa(upper class house) was also attacked during the FR(he did by cafés and have a villa, enough money for himself and Elise for it to be teared down by angry mobs. But why of all things would he go grave robbing after becoming a Master Assassin(all skills by the end of the game) and what could it serve the brotherhood(if he us still part of it)? Arno looks messed up and go grave robbing after a revolution for freedom and justice, I don't get it. There is something missing.

It's not as though he's robbing the graves of commoners -- he's a kingly-grave robber.

Ezio too was a grave-robber of sorts; I actually liked those portions of AC2 quite a bit.

But why? It just doesn't match with his previous fight for freedom and justice. And he looks like he swam through a sewer. He's a robber with standards.

Same was Edward, Connor etc... Agree, I like those missions.

I was thinking the same sort of thing. What if Arno hears about Philip IV of France gaining an artefact through his major part in forcing the templars underground, in 1307.

Guess where Philip IV of France was buried? The Basilica of St. Denis. What if someone uncovered this artefact and Arno is deadset on getting it for himself and Elise, whatever the cost...

Would be a good idea but would they save such a plot for a DLC? I would have thought something of this scale would be saved for a proper sequel. Not everyone would have bought the DLC and so I am sure they would save something as big as "reviving Elise" for Arno's inevitable sequel.

New Assassin for a new generation, I am sure they would carry on his story for another game due to the new systems. I don't see how they can just create new assassins every year as then we would get hundreds!
Also, the Napoleonic Wars will probably be saved for a sequel.
I just got a feeling that they will use him again as its the first next-gen game

True, but she wouldn't have to be dead for Arno to be in a bad shape. She could be extremely ill, poisoned perhaps? That would probably make him even more desperate as he would be 'on the clock' so to speak.

I know it's a long shot, but to me the involvement of a member of the French royal family being prominent to the story seems like the only reason to me why they would chose this location. If not, why wouldn't they maybe pick somewhere else, or have it based in the already created main hub of Paris they have built?

Following on from that logic, who would have the most relevance to the Assassins Creed Lore in St. Denis? Either someone in history who has played a major role (Philip), or someone who is set up in the story of Unity (maybe Elise is related to the royal family or something).

I'm just spitballing here, but to me it seems like an elegant way of linking Unity with the overarching AC lore. :P

I see your point,but altair for example had only one game(not counting revelations).
Of course,the napoleonic wars is a great setting to use,so it is probable that ACU 2 will explore this era through arno

Doubtful, if they are planning an Arno sequel it's probably 30% done by now. I doubt they would go back to the 18th century after 3 or 4 games in whatever time period they choose next.

That's what crossed my mind as well, notice that belt in the Dead Kings image? To me it looks like a broken assassin insignia (you know, part of it missing).

If I remember right, lanterns have also been featured in the Unite program's Free Paris game (to help find the tiles with rewards I guess).

anyone think that the useless manuscript we collect in black flag will have some importance in unity ?

every time I replaying BF and collect them I don't stop to think that they maybe hind some obscure secret, like S16 glyph in AC 1 that give little historical legends and hints that lead to TWCB revelation in the next game .

http://assassinscreed.wikia.com/wiki/Database/Documents_(AC4BF)

a bit little relation between them is that every altor of the documents as some connection with alquemy or the voynich manuscript(yes,some legends says that Leonardo da Vinci have the manuscript ) that is not only foreshadowed in Black Flag but also in brahman.
http://assassinscreed.wikia.com/wiki/Voynich_manuscript

or the manuscript or the philosofer's stone(legend with french origin with nicholas flamel) will appear in unity.

I not the only one thats think in the Philosofer's stone theory

Alex said Dead Kings will be the darkest AC experience yet. This could also refer to Elise being dead and him having memories of her. Also, it'd make sense for this game to have a darker filter like showed in the promotional images to reflect Arno's thoughts.

If Elise really is dead I'm going to be pretty angry Ubi spoiled it. Or they could be manipulating our minds so we'd think she's dead...

Would actually not mind it.

I don't have a thing against zombie game modes, just when they get shoved in FPS games its just repetitive. Or say, the million Dead Islands etc.

Undead Nightmare is one of my favourite DLC's as it was long as heck and actually had a good story.

I would love to see AC's take on it, they could full take advantage of the number of NPC zombies on screen, the street level fog etc.

I like the zombie idea. I didn't know if it'd work at first. You could air assassinate them obviously. They could come at you with the crowd technology which would be improved upon in the next game anyway. Stealth would be viable too because zombies are dumb. Since there's so many you could just escape which Ubi is trying to make a viable option now.

It'd be kind of like a 3rd person Dying Light because in Dying Light you stay on the rooftops to avoid zombies which you'd do now too because if they can't climb you'd have a big advantage on them.

I personally think the setting would have to be good to incorporate the zombies. Paris is a good one because it's darker than previous settings.

How about we save it for the Ancient Egypt game, so we could have a Mummy mode instead.

Zombies are just so overdone in everything now that I honestly am getting bored of them.

I was just gonna say

"Mummies are basically zombies anyway, only much more exotic and with all that mumbo jumbo curse stuff.

Plus it fits more with AC's historical theme than CoDs "HEY GUYS! Let's just throw zombies into our historical WW2 shooter because......Idunno, it'd totally be awesome tho amirite?"

and that, is my point. Call of Duty, ruined Call of Duty... Not the zombie mode. He mentions zombies... in a single sentence... and that's it. So I don't see how it proves your point of zombies ruining Call of Duty, when this guy already proved... Call of Duty was ruined before zombies were even introduced.

If an AC game had zombies I'd think that Ubi went nuts to please fans' extreme demands for diversity. No. please, no.
Anyway, with the announcement of this DLC I did feel that Ubisoft spoiled us. In my case, not just because Arno looks like something bad happened to him but because he is alive. I had imagined, among a whole bunch of things, Elise getting pregnant close to the end of the game, so we would play with her just to see papi Arno dramatically die, or something like that (I like angsty romances that end bad haha :P) This wasn't my best idea, though.

IMDB is like Wikipedia since you can edit the page. Roger and Noah have been on the cast list for a while now, so take everything with a grain of salt. Some of the other voice actors are confirmed since they said so during the SacAnime panel, but voicing new characters.

Yeah, we saw this some time ago. And it has been on there for a while.

We asked Noah about this and he said during his stream that IMDB is usually always correct, but he can't confirm or deny anything about that being listed on his profile because he didn't know about it until people confronted him about it.

Slightly hyped if it's true to a major extent, but not getting my hopes up too high.

Don't know if this has been pointed out yet, but I just checked Unity's IMDB page and:
Roger Craig Smith as Ezio Auditore da Firenze
Noah Watts as Connor Kenway
Not even "(rumored)" so pretty much confirmed. Really curious to see how this will play out!

I once got away with listing Jack Black as Elise in IMDB.

Has Connor been confirmed for Unity??

I was just on Noah Watts' IMDb page, and in the list of things he has been in (filmography), at the very top, it says

Assassin's Creed: Unity (Video Game) (post-production)
Connor Kenway (Ratonhnhaké:ton) (voice)

I wouldn't know how it works
But if that is the case, then I suppose it invalidates my argument for added credibility
But I don't think it is, because other people are saying that anyone can add or change anything, so it makes it seem more like a community wiki.

Yes, I thought of a Halloween like DLC at first too but then I realized Unity will come out after Halloween and this DLC will be well after Halloween. It stinks the timing isn't right. :(

Man, now I want a werewolf DLC. Every full moon Arno turns into a Werewolf. He has longer parkour range, jumps further, climps faster and fights and assassinates with his claws...Every citizen during full moon is carrying torches, pitchforks and other tools, and have the AI of an enemy guard, so it's suggested to use rooftops. (Or just jump down and massacre everyone. More power, after all)

And after beating the game the player can transform any time he wants.

I've actually never played TOKW. It seems too expensive. Gonna buy it someday, as I'm a fan of Ac3.

I was just thinking about a generic werewolf. Taller than average human, stands on two feet, Lots of grey fur.

Haven't watched HP in ages, I don't think I've even heard of AW and I don't know anything about Twilight.

Speaking of werewolves, check out the book The Wolf's Hour... deals with a russian guy during WWII and how he could turn into a wolf, and actually has him fighting nazis as a wolf... but he also keeps the intelligence he has as a human. Quite a good book, and very great take on the werewolf genre...

Farlander1991
10-17-2014, 10:58 AM
I haven't been able to appreciate LA Noire's facial animation for two reasons:
1) The models look weird as hell to me. I think it's due to the lighting though and how it falls on the faces rather than the model quality itself.
2) I haven't played the whole game yet (plan to one day, though), but the acting of suspects in the first parts of the game at least (maybe it's more subtle further down the line) is so exaggerated that they resemble animated characters more.

So AC3 actually is king for me when it comes to facial animations for now. There's so many freaking subtleties there, it's awesome.

Although I've never had the experience with other games, that I had with L.A. Noire, of 'Holy hell that's so-and-so playing the murder suspect!' Being able to recognise famous actors from their in game model was a new on, at least for me...

I get what you mean, it's usually the makeup, most of all. I met the guy once in his Connor cosplay. It looked like he was wearing a mask. :p

Regarding the glyphs, if Clay's involved then we're certain to have further old-school AC mysteries, and that's always good news. Plus, there's lots of speculation flying around, about the possibility of Desmond being alive. Perhaps not in the normal, biological sense, but kind of like Clay himself. Or Juno, for that matter.

It mentions the Glyphs Puzzles' missions, and I'm sorry if it's old news or if it's already been posted, I just found it. :p

Yeah, you're right, after all. But a free App isn't quite the same as a non-free one, I'd say. :cool:

No App is even better :cool:

But that won't happen.

The App might be free? That's cool.

It WILL be free. ACIV one was, and ACU one also will be, Ubi already said that.

I've got nothing to complain about the app nor Initiates.I might be the only one who likes Initiates,but I think that there should be another way to unlock these rewards in-game.It took me a year to know there was a unlockable DLC in Initiates.I could've used those pretty sails before.

Are you being genuine or are you spiteful about May getting a ban?

Are you being genuine or are you spiteful about May getting a ban?

May's comment was "antagonizing", so I think he's being genuine, he just doesn't know what the ban was actually for
Its not the fact that the comment said initiates was bad, but because it was antagonizing people

I hope I'll enjoy the app more this time around. With AC4's I used it a little at first for sending out ships but then I had enough money. Since I don't use Kenway's fleet in the main game I don't use the app either.

It's not that I don't want to use it, it's that I don't have great enough incentive to. These glyphs look pretty cool so I'm looking forward to this one.

is it true that unity will only spread 5 years

so arno becomes an assassin in 1789 at 21 years and the game will end when he is 26?

They show Arno as a young boy with his future love interest. Not sure if that portion will be playable though but it might be just very simple gameplay, just to activate cut scenes and bring out some story.

Isnt the Sword of Eden in Libya? There was a temple built there that houses the 'enchanted sword' Ascalon. How would it get all the way to France?

Yeah, I agree. Despite the fact that none of the Unity rewards are really vital or preponderant to complete the game, many unlockables might indeed be interesting. Making fans play on different platforms, just to get a few interesting rewards, doesn't seem reasonable.

I'm really not sure where I should post this, but I read one of the confidential files that we hack from Olivier's computer in AC4 and in that file Melanie mentions the possible time periods connected with Sample 17 (Desmond's DNA). Here's part of the conversation:

"Remember this is data that has already been FULLY or PARTIALLY sequenced by Abstergo Industries. I'll try to be brief...

Patrilineal Line:
Fifteenth Century - Italian Renaissance
Sixteenth Century - Ottoman Empire
Eighteenth Century - American Colonies / War for Independence
Nineteenth Century - New England and American Midwest

Matrilineal Line:
Twelfth Century - Holy Land / Crusades
Thirteenth Century - Egypt and Northern Africa
Fourteenth Century - Ashikaga Shogunate in Japan
Eighteenth Century - French Revolution
Nineteenth Century - Napoleonic wars; Taiwan
Twentieth Century - "Summer of Love" American Pacific Coast

Obviously this is just a small sample of the potential options. The number of ancestors any one person has is well above thirty-thousand after just fifteen generations... so there could be many more surprises waiting for us within Sample 17."

Now what really caught my attention is that she mentioned Eighteenth Century - French Revolution and if I'm not mistaken, Arno is not Desmond's ancestor (so this time period shouldn't be related to subject 17). Unless she was referring to Connor because he was still alive by then and played a part in the French revolution!? Or is she talking about someone else entirely? Maybe we will see Connor in Unity after all!

@Breakdownthewall

First of all, Darby confirmed that he basically just wrote that entire list off of the top of his head after having a quick glance at the most fan requested settings (aside from the "Summer of Love" which is a Simpsons reference). So it basically has nothing to do with anything, just a red herring.

Second of all the French Revolution one is on the Matrilineal line, which means it is not referring to Connor as the Patrilineal line refers to him.

breakdownthewall
10-22-2014, 11:43 AM
Thanks for addressing that, I haven't been keeping up with all the information lately. I am just hoping for a Connor appearance lol
Also, since the French revolution is on the Matrilineal line like you just pointed out, I guess Elise could quite possibly end up being Desmond's ancestor (but then again, that list might mean nothing).

10-22-2014, 12:11 PM
I think Desmond's connenctions to the historical part of the game will be no more.

DumbGamerTag94
10-22-2014, 05:20 PM
I'd bet that there will at some point be a very subtle reference or a database entry that points to Pierre Bellic as Desmond's ancestor in the French Revolution. I just feel it.

We might see Connor, because ACU is less than a decade after the events of AC3. I saw a youtube video of some french gamers who explained things about the trailers and demos of ACU and he said the guy who called Arno "pisspod" was actually in the Seven Years War which was before the events of AC3, so odds are he knew Achilles (Connor's mentor) and might show up in AC Rogue too. Also, in AC3 Marquis de Lafayette told Connor that he was invited to Paris when the events of AC3 were over.

It is slightly possible that Pierre was in North America during the 7years war. But don't forget that there was also European, South American, Caribbean, and Indian theaters to that war as well so he could have served in any of them.

And the creators have already confirmed in multiple occasions that previous assassins will not be in Unity except for possibly mentions in dialogue.

Connor isn't going to be there. It wouldn't make any sense anyway. The only thing that remotely makes it possible is Lafayette's invitation.

10-22-2014, 09:02 PM
I remember how NBC staunchly denied that Steve Carrell would be present for the finale of the last season of The Office- yet, as many fans predicted, he was.

Obviously, this by no means suggests that Connor is going to be in Unity- but I think that going off of the dev's words isn't proof that he isn't, either.

The poster said they appeared on Smartglass, nothing too spoilery, but I enclosed the list in a spoiler tag anyway.

None of the cheevo pics really look background worthy so I'll probably just use my Sunset Overdrive ones. The cubular style is slick and cool though. I just skimmed through because of spoilers but it looks like I can complete all of these.

Arno's personality and possible similarities with Ezio mentioned in this interview with Amancio and Examiner. Also, a bit on the modern day which sounds bad IMO.

"I think every assassin we have had is really different," Assassin's Creed Unity Creative Director, Alex Amancio, told Examiner in an interview. "Obviously, they are assassins so they have a certain archetype, but then we really try to create individual personalities. The one Arno more closely resembles might be Ezio, just in the sense that Ezio also had that innocence at the beginning; however, Arno is a very different character from Ezio, he’s got a sense of humor which is similar, but very different. Ezio is more playful. He’s the archetypical Italian ladies man, whereas Arno is a little bit more reserved."

Ezio is the only assassin to receive his own trilogy, with Assassin's Creed Brotherhood and Assassin's Creed Revelations releasing subsequent to Assassin's Creed II.

According to Amancio, players will get to see two sides of Arno thanks to his childhood friend and lover, Elise de la Serre.

"He’s all about Elise, ever since his childhood," Amancio said. "Arno has a lot of humor, but his humor is a lot sharper. He has a lot of wit and a lot of speed in his replies. That also translates into his movements. His movements are very sharp, very deadly; he will go for the killing blow instantly. Arno is a character that has a lot of dimensions to him. He has some darkness, but I think he hides that darkness, unlike Connor, who is more of a quiet brooding character. I think Arno hides that darkness with humor and with a little bit of nonchalance. It’s only with Elise that you actually peer into Arno. When he’s interacting with her you begin to see cracks in his armor."

As for Unity's present day storyline, Amancio explained that his team is trying to "break the fourth wall." In essence, the player is meant to feel as though they are the protagonist.

"The present day story is different, it’s a new beginning," he said. "It is in-line, although different, with Black Flag. In Black Flag you actually play yourself as an Abstergo employee in first-person. It’s not that, right? What we’re really trying to do is break the fourth wall. It’s smaller. Since it’s a new beginning, we really want to start slow. It starts to put each player at the center of the experience to try and address the player. Technically, every one of the players is the main protagonist of the present day story."

All I could deduct from that is that the present day story might be even smaller than it was in Black Flag, which sucks.
I do not like the sound of every player being the protagonist. I have a feeling they're going to somehow merge initiates into the storyline.

I hope it is the real, I was expecting a lot "bigger" requirements. But if it is the real, thats good. Anyways I hope this will be downgraded further with optimization and such things. Yeah, I know that this is very unlikely because there are only 3 weeks more. But I wouldn't be surprised if they were to change the release date which I hope won't happen.

Unbreak it, I don't want to be a protagonist.


The present day story is different, it’s a new beginning," he said.

It clearly is a bad start, your good at gameplay. I'll give you that but poor at story.


"It is in-line, although different, with Black Flag. In Black Flag you actually play yourself as an Abstergo employee in first-person. It’s not that, right?

It is but it was never "me", I don't work for Abstergo. Unless a you can get Ubi to hire me.


What we’re really trying to do is break the fourth wall.

Don't try, it's bad enough that you say it..


It’s smaller.

Just what I wanted, less story, less bigger picture, less purpose and less reasons. Are we reliving Arno's memories just couse? Sounds so relevant.


Since it’s a new beginning, we really want to start slow.

To slow, AC isn't a baby anymore.


It starts to put each player at the center of the experience to try and address the player.

While the story is on hold, how nice.


Technically, every one of the players is the main protagonist of the present day story.

So no one is the main protagonist and technically your not giving us a story. Only an experience were "we" are the main protagonist(non-existent), so you can deliver a "story" with just some databases from a rift mission saving Assassins without showing a thing about MD. So we're saving Assassins now, not bad but it would have been better to be sent around the word freeing them yourselves either in first person or third person, not this "surprising experience with a twist". I don't expect a "twist" in MD nor the "suprise" Darby talked about. I expect nothing.

Wasn't this the same lame excuse they gave us for AC4's modern day? I can swear that I already heard this "break the fourth wall' ******** somewhere...

A little bit of info is revealed in this that I didn't know about. There is confirmation of multiple phantom blades if it wasn't already confirmed. There are also some really big numbers like 80% less fall damage.

I'm so excited for customization. These outfits are all awesome and fitting for the setting. If they put this much detail into the next game's items it would be awesome. This game's customization is a HUGE jump from AC4.

Here's a quote:

There are almost 200 items and over 100 weapons in Assassin's Creed® Unity. Twenty color variations are available for each piece of equipment. So when it comes to equipping Arno, you have thousands of options.

There are 20 color variations that you can choose from for each equipment piece. That's awesome. I thought it would just be for the whole body. There's 5 categories btw, hood, coat, bracers, belt, and breeches.

There are 20 color variations that you can choose from for each equipment piece. That's awesome. I thought it would just be for the whole body. There's 5 categories btw, hood, coat, bracers, belt, and breeches.

I think it is just the whole body. But each piece will still need its own design when it comes to choosing a colour.

Do you guys think that light swords have different animations than sabres and heavier swords? In some vids when he is using light rapiers he does a lot of swift fast strikes and spins, but in one of the e3 vids https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L5oCobhHCmw&spfreload=10 at 3:25, when he is fighting with a heavier looking sword, he does a lot of jabs and regular cuts.

Do you guys think sword animations will be different based on style of sword? Also, which type do you like better? Slow and heavy jabs or fast and graceful strikes?

ALSO, holy crap, sometimes the swords look fine but sometimes in some builds/videos the swords have a freaking annoying as hell white outline blur that follows the swing. PLEAAASEEE tell me we can turn that off or it won't be in the final build...

Well the rapiers have a better attack speed (as weapions actually have stats this time around) so you are probably going to witness more frequent jabs with rapiers than the usual sword. There are then the really heavy swords that were shown on the new co-op gameplay that have slow attacks, but deal loads of damage.

I'm trying to remain on media blackout, but since it sounds like the video is free-roam footage, does this confirm ambient music during free-roam?

I'm not clicking that this year. I watched Black Flag gameplay last year and Havana would've seemed cooler if I experienced it first hand.

Farlander1991

The music will be in Unity free-roam. The reason why some of the footage doesn't have music is because they're from press events where music was turned off (as it would be very noisy in an already noisy environment). If it makes you feel easier, games that have ambient music in free roam, like AC2 for example, also had music-less footage from press events. So don't worry.

(speaking of video in question, there's so much sound around that sound effects are barely recognizable).

Lol I know. I guess he didnt plan to go against the guards there and was just running forward. He jumped over a wall without realizing that he alarmed the guards by getting into the zone. Then he started to try and fight, realized it wont work and decided to run away and upwards.

Or maybe he was just curious about the combat difficulty and wanted to check things by getting into combat.

I don't know. We're so encouraged to customize our Arno, that I take any "cannon robes" with a grain of salt. Maybe it will be like how Edward starts with Walpole's robes, but you're forced in some part to at least upgrade them in the story, if not necessarily change them entirely.

So I read through all the hands on previews again and have composed a list of the pros and cons generally shared amongst everyone. When the game comes out we should all say if we agree or not.

Pros(everyone mostly agreed was great):

1. Graphics are superb
2. Crowds are awesome
3. City is the best in the series and full of random dynamic things to do.
4. Murder mysteries are nice missions.
5. Animations are great.
6. 4 player co op is great
7. mission structure is much better.
8. Combat is much harder.
9. Stealth is much better thanks to stealth button, as is the AI,

Cons:
1. 2 player heist missions are not as fun as 4 player co op.
2. basic skills like bench blending and double assassinations must be unlocked
3. chests accessed through companion apps
4. heavy presence of bugs
5. British accents-NOONE likes them lol
6. Arno is dull

mixed-

1. Some people say the new parkour system is wonderful and brilliant.
Others say it takes a bit of getting used to and isn't revolutionary but still great
Others say it is clunky and awkward
2. Combat- most people say it is much harder and therefor better than previous combat, but some say it still feels very AC-y, and others do not like the departure from the speedy and graceful combat of previous games.


Overall, the game seems to be delivering everything it promised, although the bugs are worrisome and the accent is still annoying. To be honest I don't expect Arno to be a great character so I am not worried too much about that. I loved AC4 and thought Edward was a decent-lackluster character so.

About the Pros, I think there isn't much to be said. Regarding the Cons, I'm officially getting worried. "Heavy presence of bugs"? It's the first time I've read about this, is it really true? Is Unity riddled with bugs?

Other than that, I've absolutely no problem with british accents, on the contrary, they tend to give much credit to the film/show/game. About the chests and glyphs having to be unlocked via the Companion App, it's not ideal, it's not even cool, but it's not all that bad. Mostly boring, probably. I do have a problem with having to unlock the bench-blending skill. I mean, if sitting on a bench is considered a skill... :mad:

As for the parkour, it is revolutionary, it changes everything and it does seem more fluid, loose and credible. And combat will apparently make you want to bash your controller against your TV screen. But that's good. :cool:

Unbreak it, I don't want to be a protagonist.



It clearly is a bad start, your good at gameplay. I'll give you that but poor at story.



It is but it was never "me", I don't work for Abstergo. Unless a you can get Ubi to hire me.



Don't try, it's bad enough that you say it..



Just what I wanted, less story, less bigger picture, less purpose and less reasons. Are we reliving Arno's memories just couse? Sounds so relevant.



To slow, AC isn't a baby anymore.



While the story is on hold, how nice.



So no one is the main protagonist and technically your not giving us a story. Only an experience were "we" are the main protagonist(non-existent), so you can deliver a "story" with just some databases from a rift mission saving Assassins without showing a thing about MD. So we're saving Assassins now, not bad but it would have been better to be sent around the word freeing them yourselves either in first person or third person, not this "surprising experience with a twist". I don't expect a "twist" in MD nor the "suprise" Darby talked about. I expect nothing.

WTF ubisoft! Assassins creed never started out as a yearly releasing historical game where we go to many different points in history! It started out as an assassin game which had a main modern day story! The modern day was always the first thing and that last thing you do in the assassins creed games and you just got rid of it!!!!! It's worse than getting rid of the different historical time periods for me!!! Seriously why would you do this... people have said over the years how much they hate the tailing missions yet you have them in every f*cking game! You don't listen on something that simple yet you listen to people who were never original fans of the game and get rid of something that your fans liked!!!

I'm sure all of the fans would have liked to have the stealth button... and you didn't disappoint... although it took you very long! Now you are taking away something that fans loved! Why would you do that!!!

Now you are taking away something that fans loved!

First, Modern Day story was NEVER popular among the fanbase. Sure, there were people who really liked it, but it was a small percentage. Ever since AC1. Modern day was considered to be pointless by most of the people.

Second. Modern Day is NOT taken away. It's getting restructured, to be told in a different method of storytelling rather than a traditional third person method of storytelling, to make better quality stories.
a) AC games modern day mostly revolves around talking with people and looking at e-mails (AC1 - pretty much all that, AC2 - e-mails are changed to glyphs, plus a couple of things in the beginning and end, ACB - beginning and end traditional third-person gameplay, the rest - talking with people and looking at e-mails, ACR - even less so).
b) Even the game with the most resources allocated to modern day, that being AC3, still had just three missions and was still mostly talking and looking at e-mails.
c) Due to limited resources for modern day, that's actually one of the best ways to tell stories for it - with more abstraction. Where does Desmond get the most character progression? In the abstract ACR first-person sections and AC4 audio-logs. Desmond doesn't get near as much character progression in all other games combined as he does in those two sections.
d) Assassin's Creed didn't start out as a yearly franchise. But it became one. That's the reality of it now. And part of that reality is that third-person traditional narrative is much harder to plan and execute for a yearly game franchise. At least because of the protagonist who has got to have an arc, but also because that character has got to have detailed interactions with everything else, and it's harder to keep the story flexible (i.e. if you need to add something or remove something). Case in point? Desmond's Saga. The story became immensely jumbled up when the series became yearly.


This is what it is!!! Ubisoft don't give a sh*t about their fans all they care about is getting new fans!

if most people never cared about the modern days and now they were able to make many of those who used to care about it hate it* then why bother doing it at all? IMO the sooner they drop it the better...

and I assume that you're talking about the historical part when you talk about better quality stories, because I cannot see the MD story becoming any better than it was as it's now...

Modern day is what keeps everything connected, yes, but the historical part has always been the star of the series whatever you say (otherwise it wouldn't have always taken 90% of every game :p ). Though the concept of eternal war between Assassins and Templars would work just as well without the modern day bookends, to be fair.


and I assume that you're talking about the historical part when you talk about better quality stories, because I cannot see the MD story becoming better than it was the way it's now...

No, I am talking about the modern day part. AC4 modern day, as simplistic as it is, is better than pretty much any other game's modern day story in terms of its overall quality. It provides character development for those who were neglected of it in previous games (Desmond and Vidic, that is), lots of lore, and a very small and very short but coherent (something that you can't say about Desmond's Saga, post-AC2 at least after the solar flare twist was revealed, which IMO is the biggest problem of the old modern day) story that serves as a good introduction to the Juno story arc and shows the situation of the Assassin/Templar conflict in the modern day.

Compare it to Desmond's Saga which tries to tell an epic modern day storyline and introduces bunch of questions and fails to answer them and has got lots of problems with character progression and whatnot, it's a mess. I was very intrigued by it at first, but looking back, honestly, I don't think it could've been not a mess, even in the original trilogy plan - AC2 barely progressed anything in the AvT storyline and introduced a solar flare plot twist, what was their plan exactly for AC3 if ACB/ACR hadn't existed? Removing subplots that were introduced by those games, we still have a lot of things to take care of. I really like Desmond's story, at least the concept of it, and the thoughts of what it could've been, but the end result is a mess and AC4 is simply more tidy and polished.

First, I must emphasize that I never had any problems with the modern day storylines, whatsoever. Yes, some were far more enticing and thrilling, but they all added up. Second, it remains to be seen whether this restructure of the modern day context has anything to do with the simple need to restructure it, or actually with the realization of the insanely complex path they've taken with it, and the obvious need to step back and rethink the whole thing. I bet on the second possibility.

Yes, I agree. The modern day gives the whole substrate to the series. Without a prominent modern day context, there's no significance to the whole historical part of the game. The historical part exists, because we have people, in the modern day context, that have resources to access and navigate ancient memories. So, we're left not knowing who's accessing and navigating, and how or why they're doing so.
