View Full Version : Would you, the fans, be okay if we went to a time period before the 1700's?

So since 3 we've hit the 1700's and now we're escalating through it and now even into the late 1800's. Would you guys be okay if they decided to go backwards to an Assassin before the 1700's? Thanks to anyone who replies!

It depends on the setting. Both the timeline and setting are important factors.

I like both Modern & Ancient, so it doesn't matter.

Though a rotation between the two would be nice...

I don't really mind Medieval or Revolutionary time periods. Although, I wouldn't want to go as recent as the 1930's.

Lol obviously however if they are going to implement modern game play mechanics with the shooting I doubt they will risk getting rid of major mechanics to make a new game... They will probably make all the games past it and then stop...

Not really.

The closer we get to Modern, the more stealth we have to use.

That's why I'm hoping Victory exceeds even Unity in that aspect, and becomes the stealthiest game yet.


Well that's at least how I look at it... ^^

i also prefer going BACK. mostly because i really enjoy melee combat. AC:U finally made combat challenging and fun, even if kinda shallow, and im scared for Victory. i am scared that they will go for guns and fire arms and neglect the depth of the melee combat they started building upon.

i would prefer going back. any time will be fine as long as they improve mechanics. ancient times will be also cool and bows and spears and throwing knives\hatchets can replace fire arms, IMO.

i dont think fire arms are a must to make the game more stealth oriented. making enemies less predictable, faster and do more damage can force you to go stealthy just the same.

Tbh, I find the arrows as annoying & overpowered as the guns are.

In brotherhood, I can kill an ARMORED brute with a single arrow, whilst in AC3 for example, It takes two gunshots to kill a Jager. ( The strongest guard)

Then they get overpowered in AC4 like the crossbow. :rolleyes:

I'm not talking about using the arrows or guns. I'm talking about getting hit by them to use stealth. If the future is better for stealth because the enemies have so many guns... why not give them arrows which have a one or 2 hit kill...

Would I be okay with it? Hell yes! I'd be more than okay - I'd be really happy. Heck, take us back to a time when it's all stabbing and one-shot ranged weapons with slow reloads. I just think AC doesn't work all that well when multiple-fast-reloads for ranged combat is part of the mix.

Arrows can be parried or blocked with armor. i.e: AC:R's opening

Heck, guns in the Ezio Trilogy deals significantly more damage than a bow and arrow. And another thing, bows are quiet. If a musket is fired, the other guards will hear it and run towards, forcing you to evade, which as said, promotes stealth.

Like most above, "back in time" is preferable.

Speaking of different weapons, I think this has appeared on the AC setting request lists before but "medieval" (for lack of a better term) China in the 13th century would make for an amazing game. Like starting with the death of Genghis Khan (historically, his cause of death is a mystery... Assassins perhaps??) and the early development of gunpowder weapons, to the wars with the Mongols later in the 1200s. And if Ubisoft marketing deemed it necessary, you could even incorporate Western settings because of the Silk Road AND reuse assets from previous games! Back to Acre, anyone?

Of course, it would be weird having 13th century Chinese characters speaking with British accents... :rolleyes:

The fans have been wanting to go back in time for..a long time. Before Victory was leaked I had hoped that the next game would finally take some risks and bring us to a different continent, or at least go to the ancient times or something.

Instead they go FORWARD in time, to the 19th century now. I hope it's a one-time thing, AC was stuck in the 18th century for 2 years with FIVEEEE games. I don't this to happen again.

I'd like to see any of the centuries that have plenty of buildings for us to climb, that they haven't yet covered. So any of the red periods work for me:

5000BCE to 100BCE - lack of buildings, small sizes of cities a potential issue, but if they can make it work, why not.
100BCE to 400s - Roman Empire - sea combat potential.
500s to 1000s - Vikings, barbarian invasions - more sea combat potential?
1100s - AC1, Altair.
1200s - AC Revelations, Altair.
1300s - not featured in any game as yet, and it's a rich period with lots of potential - the Peasants' Revolt, the Black Death, etc.
1400s - AC2, Ezio.
1500s - AC Brotherhood, AC Revelations, Ezio.
1600s - not featured in any game as yet, and it's a rich period with lots of potential - Elizabethan England, Feudal Japan, Dutch East India Company, lots of sea combat potential - explorers, buccaneers etc.
1700s - AC4, Edward; AC Rogue, Shay; AC Liberation, Aveline; AC3, Haytham/Connor; AC Unity, Arno.
1800s - AC Victory.
1900s - in my opinion, too many advanced guns for an AC game.
2000s - in my opinion, way too many advanced guns for an AC game.

I actually prefer modern settings over ancient ones but that may just be because we've had modern ones for a while. The older (both historically and AC wise) AC games have worse tech and are less appealing to me. I get excited for each new AC setting, and since the recent ones have been modern, that may be why.

Anyway, I guess I'd be okay with it. I actually want one more modern game after Victory in either the Boshin War, the American Civil War, or 1920's America.

I definitely want to go back to an ancient setting though. There is a lot of untapped potential out there and I love reading and learning about more ancient history since there is so little entertainment for ancient settings. If I look up the best historical movies, I've seen most of them and some aren't that old. It seems most movies are set in the last 100 years so that's why I love AC so much. It can recreate a lost time period.

As long there is a decent urban envinroment and a non linear mission design Im totally in! No more dull settings of two storey tall buildings and small landmarks and no more AC III wise missions in the likes of being someones chauffeur and 90% cutscene assassinations. Give me medieval Europe, China, India, Ancient Sumer, Babylon to name a few and open missions as well.

How about all the way back when Neanderthals were first beginning to discover the advantages of organization for power and control. A group began to question their existence and the possibility of a supreme being and the Templar brotherhood was born. Other individuals did not like the control exerted by the Templars and became the earliest of the Assassins. Dodging or killing dinosaurs, fashioning weapons from available materials and discovering travel to other places and the struggle to live and kill Templars could be the story line. Here's what the main assassin named something like oize might look like.

I think the perfect opportunity would have been a game on Thomas de Carneillon. I'd love for a change in time period after Victory, I really don't want them to make the same mistake as last time where they give us 5 protagonists from 1 time period. I wouldn't really like a game that's permanently in the 4th century, precursor times, or anything like that, but I'd love it if the setting was somewhere like the 1300 or 1400 and we used memory seals or something of the sort to go view memories of the precursor race or people of earlier years. As long as it ties in with the modern day and overarching story like Revelations did

I think it's interesting that Thomas de Carneillon, after what was really just a few seconds of screen time in Unity, has sort of caught our imagination in a way that no other secondary character really has. He just has the aura of a supreme bad-***.

With this sort of fan support, I'd be surprised if we don't see a game based around him in the next two or three years.

Ah, actually, we're both half right and half wrong... I think

According to the acwiki the apple was used for forced evolution on primates to create humans. I think then neanderthals didn't really exist in the AC Universe since what (I think) it's saying is that they basically made primates into humans during the time of the first civ, so basically a game as a neanderthals making first discoveries couldn't happen since humans have been here since the first civilization, which was pretty advanced around the time of their making

See, that's the problem though: there were NOT a lot of tall buildings and landmarks. Those few which are are notable because of that. Like the architecture in the first AC: it's really beautiful and well done, but for parkour fun, meh -- not so great. Lots of 2-story flat-topped buildings.

I'd LOVE a game set in ancient times. Although, considering the lack of tall buildings, I'd miss the climbing...

But as some have mentioned before, why not have a game in the times of Those Who Came Before? Let's play as Adam or Eve, sneaking around and trying not to be noticed by TWCB because we're no longer under the Apple's influence! Trying to overthrow TWCB and freeing fellow humans etc. A game like that could appeal to those who love the AC lore, but also bring in new fans who prefer a more futuristic setting. :D

If you don't want to see threads like this, you made a pretty silly choice when you bumped the thread, now didn't you.

Jeez!

I usually don't click most of them, but at this point it's getting ridiculous. There's no need for so many threads about the same thing, just a pet peeve of mine.

Though yes, I would like to leave the 18th century. I loved the Jaques de Molay sequence in Unity, so medieval europe would be nice.

Need has nothing to do with it. There is no rule about threads on similar subjects. Forums exist so that people can talk. No one's forcing you to click on the threads. If you really don't like a subject, just ignore it - if enough people agree with you it will very quickly fall off the front page. If it doesn't, then it means people want to talk about it.

Guess what - the forums aren't all about your desires.

But yeah, this topic is being brought up constantly.

We get it, people are tired of 18th Century. :rolleyes:

See, that's the problem though: there were NOT a lot of tall buildings and landmarks. Those few which are are notable because of that. Like the architecture in the first AC: it's really beautiful and well done, but for parkour fun, meh -- not so great. Lots of 2-story flat-topped buildings.


I'd LOVE a game set in ancient times. Although, considering the lack of tall buildings, I'd miss the climbing...

But as some have mentioned before, why not have a game in the times of Those Who Came Before? Let's play as Adam or Eve, sneaking around and trying not to be noticed by TWCB because we're no longer under the Apple's influence! Trying to overthrow TWCB and freeing fellow humans etc. A game like that could appeal to those who love the AC lore, but also bring in new fans who prefer a more futuristic setting. :D

An impossible dream for it would require much more investigation than Paris, Venice and Rome for instance.....

I know, I keep telling Ubisoft. It's me they need to please, not anyone else. If I'm pleased, all will be pleased.

Well, if I can get assurance that if they go ancient, it wont be ancient Egypt, I might change my mind

The problem with those is that they are all artist's imaginary renditions, and while they're cute, they don't really give any idea of how to flesh out a game. An Assassin's Creed game needs a bit more than a pretty setting - if Unity taught us anything, it taught us that.

We know little to nothing about ancient Babylon - it's almost all just guesswork, and Ubisoft needs a LOT more than a plan of the city if we're ever to see a game based there. We need to know what the Babylonians wore, how they worked, we need to know famous people of the period (and we know of virtually no one), etc. We're talking about a city whose greatest landmark - the hanging gardens - is so poorly documented that we can't even be sure it actually existed, let alone know where it was. There are no extant Babylonian texts which mention the gardens, and no definitive archaeological evidence has been found in Babylon.

If AC goes to Babylon, it will mean dumping any illusions that the game is based on history, because it will all be pure fiction. I just don't think Ubisoft is going to do that.
