looks like that game that was rumored to be Prince of Persia
Alright new character, Connor sucked
That's a bit odd, staying with someone so closely related to characters. I thought they were gonna do Japan or Victorian London or something...Oh well. This could be cool, too.
Bye AC, nice knowing ya!!
So it will show how Haythem became a Templar?
Thank God, AC3 was a mediocre game, but the sailing really stood out. If they can emphasize that, the franchise might be headed uphill again.
Thes sea frigate fights in AC3 were easily the best thing about the game,Ive head alot about how people liked the "open world" of AC3 but to me it felt no more open world than Fable 2,i was very linier to me and not a true open world like the Elder Scrolls GTA or even Arkham City... That said i hope they have alot more to offer than just naval battles,as relying on one feature can become repetitive and dull if milked to much in a game.
Will it be on the PS4?
Now, THIS sounds like a more interesting ambience for AssCreed (sorry lol had too). Specially since they did such a superb job on the naval warfare portion of the 3rd game (to me, the only salvageable feature on III).
This would allow them to embrace world travel, for more varied environs, and it feels like it would be more in accord with the whole "buried treasure" quality to the alien artifacts. This is better, because would feel more natural vs. the whole "everything is conveniently in the region" kinda thing.
Nice! I couldn't get enough of AC3's ship combat. If they flesh it out further, I must pre-order.
They must have really liked the ship battles and ocean setting from AC III. Looks like that's all this game will be about basically.
wow really? so basically, more privateer and naval contracts????? what happened to the 'assassin' aspect of the game????
