View Full Version : Why "Victory"?

Victory: noun \ˈvik-t(ə-)rē\
1) the overcoming of an enemy or antagonist
2)achievement of mastery or success in a struggle or endeavor against odds or difficulties

The new rumored AC title has me a bit worried. Do you think that "Victory" implies some sort of conclusion to the series? Whose victory might it be? What might the victory be?

I know the best we can hope for is some wild speculation right now, but I thought I'd get the ball rolling.

Victory refers to Ubisoft's ability to get you to buy this game after you made a million angry forum posts saying you were done with AC.

A obvious reference to the time period portrayed, the Victorian era.

Victory refers to the time period and probably a little something in the story. Don't fret over the possibility of it being the last game. It's pretty much a guarantee they have more coming. They wouldn't have sent out those surveys if this was the last one.

Stupid name aside,it's based off the time this AC is set in,the Victorian era.
Because AC Reign or AC Vendetta isn't good.

Is everyone sure it is going to be the official title? It could just be a codename like 'Comet' was for 'Rogue'.

My guess:

You will actually play as a Templar in AC Victory. And experience the golden age of Templar domination over the British Empire. During the Victorian era when the sun never set on the empire!(hopefully a few missions in some of the colonies!!!!! India, Afghanistan, Hong Kong, Africa. So much room there for some cool side missions/campaign plots!!! Even if it's just like Princepe in AC4 I'd be cool with it or maybe even small cities like Versailles was in Unity??? Don't waste that potential Ubi!!! I've missed the globe trotter feel to AC that AC3s peg leg missions gave us!! It was a great way to diversify that game and was just fun seeing the different locations!) the title could elude to the Templars securing their greatest Vicotry over the assassins since Shay in 1761.

Either that or it's just the lamest thing they could come at that eludes to the setting. Victory=Victoria???? Victorian London??? No??? Verrrryyyyy creative Ubi

I'd love for it to feature a bit of globetrotting to different colonies. I swear, if they miss this great chance to showcase some of the British Raj, I'll be... very upset.

Assuming Victory will be set the Victorian Era of England's history. Will we be getting a whole new protagonist? Would there even be a possibility for a previous character(s) from these last batch of games to show up?

MakimotoJin
12-08-2014, 04:54 AM
Nah,don't worry.Everyone makes mistakes.
According to a leak before Unity's release,a new AC would be set in Victorian London,and the protagonist would be called Samuel Fey.Since the recent leak confirms a AC set in Victorian London,I could guess the protagonist is Sam.

Not...quite.She said that because many people talked about how Unity's story would be,but it all went downhill.
Some people here are talking about how the story could be about the Assassins struggling to survive in the Industrial Revolution,since the Templars rise at this time.
If that doesn't happen,Mayrice will be right,and I will be sad.

Samuel Fey huh. And here I was anticipating another female protagonist:rolleyes: I don't know with each new game there is so much that could reexamined, revamped, abandoned, or adopted. I have only played Unity once and the new combat system felt new and more difficult, I hope that can be kept. I am always a sucker for temple, cave, and labyrinth puzzles and exploration so that would nice too. I still haven't made up my mind whether I prefer to be in the middle of huge historical events or just on the periphery influencing and watching as events occur. Oh well we have a whole year to speculate and dig up dirt.

We all thought we knew what Unity meant, especially after seeing the trailers, but it turned out that the word had almost no relevance to the story at all so perhaps Victory means nothing either. Maybe in the same way that "Unity" was nothing more than a vague call to "Unité, indivisibilité de la Republique. Liberté, égalité, fraternité ou la mort", "Victory" is nothing more than a nod to Queen Victoria.

It can be interpreted in multiple ways. Like the truce between Mirabeau and De La Serre, basically attempting to unite the Assassins and Templars.
It could be referring to what you said: "Unité, indivisibilité de la Republique. Liberté, égalité, fraternité ou la mort".
It could be referring to the co-op aspect; uniting with other players. It could be referring to all of these at once.

That said, I believe Victory doesn't only refer to the Victorian era but could also mean victory of the Templars over the Assassins. There must be reason why the Templars are so powerful in the modern day and the Assassins pushed so far underground.

It's probably a codename like how Comet was to Rogue.

Someone brought up "Reign" would probably be the real title instead of Victory which sounds better if you think bout it.

Reign could reference Queen Victoria's Reign, the Reign of the Templars in this era, etc.

Considering there is currently an ongoing tv series about Mary QoS at French court, the use of this title would be a non-starter.

There would be confusion when the word was mentioned, not something that anyone in marketing would ever accept/go with.

They didnt plan on screen shots being leaked, but possibly the code name.. like comet was clearly code for Ice... calling it rogue wouldve spoiled the story surprise

This. Very good point.

Having a working title that has no meaning to the story is a darn good way of not leaking the actual story even if the name gets out. Good catch that man.

Surely Unity was AC5.

AC4: Edward, Adewale & Shay

I think the VIctory name is more likely to refer to VI - six.

If you are going down that road, then it couldn't be six either. As Rogue must fit in there somewhere.

However, ACII had 3 so... your theory is completely fubard from the outset.

No idea what the new theory should be though. I'm content to sit and wait lol

Rogue is based on AC3 and/or 4, so it's part of those games.


However, ACII had 3 so... your theory is completely fubard from the outset.

The number of games has nothing to do with it. It's based on the numbers that Ubisoft gave to the games, and on the fact that all of the non-numbered games were based on previous numbered games:

Brotherhood and Revelations were both based on AC2.
Liberation was based on AC3 and features missions that include Connor, so it's part of AC3.
Freedom Cry was a DLC of AC4, so it's part of AC4.
Rogue used the same game engine used for both AC3 and 4, so it has to be part of AC3 or AC4.

Unity is the only game that isn't based on a previous game number, and it has a new engine, so it has to be AC5. No other theory makes better sense, but if you think you have a better theory, let's hear it. It's easy to naysay - anyone can merely contradict, but useful dialogue requires a bit more thought.

Very good point. I guess something big has to happen that results in the ability to engineer two world wars, and maybe it's a near extinction of one of the cults in a largest key city for both.

cawatrooper9
12-08-2014, 05:42 PM
Interesting. In the Kotaku review, they mentioned that the actual title saying "Assassins' Creed: Victory" came up over the city at the end of the gameplay. I don't know a whole lot about the production and marketing of games, but would they actually put a game's working title into the format like that?

Also, while it might be interesting to have "Victory" refer to the Templar victory over the Assassins, wouldn't that imply that the protagonist is in fact a Templar (or at least is by the time of their titular victory?) If we're playing this game from the Assassins' perspective, a more apt title would be Assassins Creed: Defeat.

Then again, perhaps this victory refers to the fulfillment of Mirabeau and de la Serre's treaty- in that case, it could be a "victory" for both parties, and their combined efforts might lend to another "victory" over a third party- the Pythagoreans perhaps (hopefully not actually them, since that wouldn't make sense, but another cult like them).

RzaRecta357
12-08-2014, 05:45 PM
Maybe it's Victory because this is the moment the Assassins start winning full out until the Bush era. I forget but don't they get really strong for a period before Daniel gets involved? Thus starting the mass purge before Desmonds game?

Anyway, I'm sure V is still being worked on and needs to be something special.

No, Unity was not 5... Otherwise it wouldve been called 5.....
Look at the reviews for the game..bugs aside.. it was getting no praises and Ubisoft had to've known it wasnt number title worth... Especially the number 5.. MASSIVE bench mark...
It takes more than a new engine to get a number on your cover.
INFACT Testing out a new engine is a PERFECT excuse to not make it a staple to the series by giving it a number...
Unity was a test game...
I think Unity is a Prequel to 5 ;)

AC1- The Apple/S16 symbols ( AltaÔr)
AC2- The Vault/ Satellite Launch ( Ezio)
( Insert Brotherhood/Revelations which changed the plot)
AC3- The Key/ Saving the World/ Death of Desmond ( Connor)

You are incorrect.


According to Assassinís Creed: Unity developer Arnaud Jamin, Assassinís Creed IV: Black Flag is the last numbered entry in the series, with Assassinís Creed: Unity ushering in a new era.
This change was also made in hopes of being more inviting to future gamers who have never played the series before who would be apprehensive of playing a title with so many gameís in the series.

Well, there is in the inFAMOUS universe... (http://www.hookedgamers.com/content/blogs/7315/l_KhXCK5_large.jpg)

But yeah, I'm definitely thinking there will be allusions to the eventual Abstergo Industries and the birth of the "modern Templar." This is set not long after the Industrial Revolution, if I understand correctly, and we already saw the move away from Templar Nobles in Unity. Abstergo wasn't created until the 1930s or so, but this could be when the Templars decided to move towards using industry to advance their goals, instead of just using organizations as a front. It'll probably fall through, which is ironic for the subtitle, but if it lays the foundation for market-dominating Abstergo 80 years later...

e: Oh, there's also the things in the Manifesto of the Instruments of the First Will about how the Industrial Revolution corrupted humanity or such. That might play into it, as well.

People thought UNITY meant a proper Union between Assassins and Templars and what we got was a joke.

Iíve been wondering about that myself. Although I know itís pretty clear that itís about the Victorian Era. But I hope we will see some sort of victory, a big one that the Assassins in modern day or history make.

Well, the victory could be more in the metaphorical and philosophical sense. The Victorian Era was a time of unchecked, unregulated capitalism, of prudish sexual repression, persecution of homosexuals (Oscar Wilde's trial) and "the other", where mental disabilities were yet to be given real consideration (Freud was controversial for upsetting that entire era and its assumptions). In other words a time of Templar Order but ultimately it fails and the Assassins win.
