@KALofKRYPTON hmm.. so that’s 5 games to complete in 3 weeks? (Or I guess 8 if you count Banner Sage as 3 games). If you start going through games much faster then we’ll have to change your name to “KalofKryptonMD”

@FullbringIchigo Of course the events 'could' carry over to future games with either of the Characters. It doesn't have to have a 'named' character or some 'reference' to them directly as AC games have jumped back and forward through time and the brotherhood of Assassins has had many members too. So opting to focus on a 'different' lineage, different members, different time/places etc isn't necessarily going to mess up any 'canon' with the franchise because you opted to play as the 'other' character.

AC could refer back to the 'Greek' era and use the generic 'Assassin' to refer to either characters actions/deeds. It wouldn't matter if Kassandra or Alex was responsible for whatever aspects the games journey takes us on, the other games that follow can still keep either as 'canon' by simply referring back to that period in more general terms. Lets be honest, AC hasn't referred to Bayek in any of the games before Origins despite being set later in the time-line. The reason we had Ezio for example was because Desmond was a descendent of his in the modern timeline.

At the end of the day, the choice is yours, play the game or don't. I will certainly play it firstly because its a great game and the game-play appeals to me. If the story is 'canon' or not depending on the character I puck, I couldn't care less as long as I enjoy the overall package. I would rather have a great game, with freedom of choice than a mediocre, more limited 'canon' game.

Why can't life be like gaming? Why can't I restart from an earlier checkpoint??

@Th3solution No chance. I am both a)too lazy, and b) slightly time poor when it comes to gaming. I might finish The Banner Saga by the time Spidey comes out, and I also may have changed my mind about buying on release or not several times over by then too...

@Th3solution I'm going to play Southpark TCBW first. And I've been easily distracted during the summer, so I'm still knee deep into Darksiders 2 (might forget about this one), Guacamelee (the plat is close!), Yakuza (just the story for now) and Tearaway (such a great world to be in). After all that's over... Origins is number one on my list to play.

So, to answer your question, I expect to start Origins in the latter half of September. I might have to rush through that one, because I'm thinking of getting Red Dead Redemption 2 day one. And then there's still Spider-Man and all the other Fall games, so there's no way I'm playing Odessey before 2019.

@BAMozzy i understand and respect that point of view but for me one of the main draws of AC is the story and i can get that in the novel, the thing is there are quite a few people who don't like the new stuff they added for the same reason, we know Kassandra is the actual character so all we want is something in the game to acknowledge that, maybe a line of someone saying, "we made some changes to the Animus so you can actually change some events and even their gender to make the experience more fun" or highlighting the canon responses with a different colour text so we know what the proper stuff is but still giving the option for others who want to go their own way

just for Ubisoft to acknowledge the lore of the series and that the changes they have made have fundamentally changed the very core of the series

@get2sammyb @Jaz007 @Tasuki ah okay, I think I can figure out what's happening here. If the topic is moved to a different forum whilst someone is busy writing a message, by the time they click save the topic has moved and therefore their new post doesn't get linked up. Isn't an easy way to fix that... at least not until I overhaul the forums next time. I'll make a note of the bug though.

In the meantime maybe just let us know when the topic is being moved? Appreciate it doesn't happen that often but would save a lot of confusion from our perspective.

Just a suggestion and not criticising anyone or anything like that.

OK now Assassin's Creed Odyssey is out (regardless of how you feel about it) thoughts are obviously moving towards the next game in the series and i was wondering, Where would people like it to be set

as for me i think the next Assassin's Creed should be set in World War One, you could have full battlefields, early tanks, the weapons wouldn't be too advanced so you could still have nad to hand combat and you could even have Naval and Air combat too, now i don't know if you could have selectable characters or not but i'm sure they could fit them in somehow and the basis of the story could be the Allies and the Assassin's are working together while the Templars are backing the Central Powers and that the Germans are after a Piece of Eden in order to ensure victory while the Assassin's try to stop them

what about you, where do YOU want it set

@FullbringIchigo Honestly, if the series went back to it’s real self with quality, I’d like to London in the industrial revolution or something similar again. Syndicate was a decent game, but I felt like it wasted the setting which was really cool.

Jaz007

FullbringIchigo

@Jaz007 yeah visiting London again would be nice

@FullbringIchigo I'm not really sure i have a preference for the next setting. I really like the settings for Origins and Odyssey so is a bit difficult for me to think where the next one is gonna be set. I'm not overly keen on anything set in World War One or Two. But I'm assuming it will be something with a similar flavour to Origins and Odyssey? Wouldn't it be weird if it was based on Norse mythology, a la God of War?

I know China is quite popular with some fans, but I know there has already been a Chronicles game set there. And it might be too similar to Sekiro and Ghosts of Tsushima for some.

Ummmmm, I may have to think about this a bit more. 🤔

@JohnnyShoulder yeah one of the Chronicles was set in china, there were ones for India and Russia too

they were OK games although i would have preferred them to be full AC games or done like Freedom Cry or something

@FullbringIchigo They’ll never do it but the American Civil War (mid 1800’s Deep South) would be an interesting setting. Outside of that, maybe something Polynesian. I don’t think they have visited that setting. Such as the unification of the Hawaiian Islands (1700-1800s) or Samoa, Tahiti, etc. Also ancient Africa could be looked at, or Viking age. Lots of possibilities.

@beemo the future would be pretty cool but i think it would have to be completely set in it with the modern day protagonist and as it stands not many people like her so i doubt they would want to play an entire 60+ hour games as her

@KratosMD if the next AC was in Japan and if it came out around the same time as Ghost of Tsushima then the AC game would probably bomb hard but i would love at least ONE AC game to be set in Japan at some point

We need more Europe for sure. @KratosMD Scandinavia would be cool. But so would the Germanic tribes, or Spain (Hispania) during the first century.

Also, would love the series to go back to the Middle East.

Jaz007

@KratosMD It’s old and aged at this point, but look up Mount & Blade: Warband: Viking Conquest DLC. It’s the closet thing we have tkbwhat you’re looking for.

Jaz007

FullbringIchigo

@beemo hmm that does sound interesting actually but they would still have to mop up the modern day story before they did something like that

i also had another thought how about a AC set during the Isu age, let us play the uprising of Adam and Eve against the First Civilization and see the beginnings of everything

so i came across this video on Gamespot and what do you think, do you agree Assassin's Creed as lost part of what made it special or do you think the changes have moved the series in the right direction?

@FullbringIchigo Not watched the video, but most people thought the games had become stagnant with Syndicate and Unity, and probably before that too. I really like what I've played in Origins and am very interested in Odyssey, but I don't really care for the over arching connected story or if it 'feels' like an Assassins Creed game or not.

I wish they just would ditch the modern day stuff all together. It's getting less time in each game and definetly my least favourite sections in all the AC games I've played.

@KratosMD well for the sake of clarity i must say i DID recently play through the older Assassin's Creed games in the run up to Odyssey and honestly i would like another older style AC game because in those games you were actually an Assassin in an area designed for it such as a city so the social stealth and those kind of aspects made sense, plus i still to this day enjoy the combat system, it was like an early Batman Arkham style of dodging and countering, it made you feel like a highly trained fighter

BUT i do also realise that with the move to a proper open world the actual game play needed to change to reflect the more open areas and like i have said before the games are fun to play but they feel like Assassin's Creed anymore if that makes sense, they are and i maintain good, fun RPG's and well worth playing but as the video said instead of innovating the genre they are following it now, they changed it so much that it doesn't even feel like the same series anymore and it "Lost it's identity" in doing so

like you said they are "getting closer to the same level of quality as games like Witcher 3 or Skyrim" (although personally i don't think Skyrim is actually that good of a game) but surly they shouldn't be trying to ape those but instead surpass those?

the point of the video was that the series doesn't have a set direction it want's to go in right now and that might actually hurt the series in the long run, it's like they guy in the video says "the series seems to be struggling to find a balance between the linear focus it's narrative needs and the freedom for the players to play as they want to"

"I pity you. You just don't get it at all...there's not a thing I don't cherish!"
