It's a good setting, but I don't think they should go any further forward in time without perhaps visiting Egypt perhaps.

I wasn't actually expecting this. I was expecting something more along the lines of perhaps Napoleon or even WWII in terms of more recent history or even jump further back to Egypt/Alexander the Great.

This will definitely be a cool way for the series to go, but I'm still unsure how well the assassin hood fits in with this setting.

But does that time setting make place? I don't know the games history but the Templars date back to the Crusades in really life.

Interesting time to set it. Only played up to halfway through ACII so far so can't comment regards how well it fits the story, but I'll definitely look forward to giving this one a go. Nice to see developers doing something new in the setting for once. :thumbup:

I think the concept of the setting is amazing. I really feel some incredible things can be done with the storyline itself in this particular time period. However from an environmental game-play standpoint, I am really struggling to see how it is going to work. As already pointed out by others in the thread, if it sticks to "take some creative liberties" reality as the previous titles have, in theory it should lack the vertically inspired buildings and architecture that make the signature platforming of the series so enjoyable. It is that platforming that is one of my personal favorite game-play elements of the series. So to say the very least I am intrigued yet skeptical. Here's to hoping I am pleasantly surprised.

If it's set strictly during the Revolutionary war (which would be awesome), he could go to colonial Boston and Philadelphia to maintain the rooftop running AC is known for. The more countryside engagements could be forts (like the Ethan Allen confrontation) and... tall sailing ships / harbors, maybe.

Its not necessarily the Templars I'm thinking about, but the Assassins. Their history can date back much farther than the Templars.

I should also say, I will be picking this up even though everything I've said to hate about the time period. lol. I'm an AC fan, so it's a must buy.

So what this is going to be Red Dead, but with an Assassin? Count me out, colonial and revolutionary times do not interest. What happened to voting on the location, and if we really got to why the hell then say "its been in dev for years". Thanks for breaking the illusion we had a choice.

China would of been an amazing setting, the scope there is limitless. U.S revolution tho? WTF I mean just WTF!?!

I dont mind American History. I trust the team with the Game. They will bring out something amazing. But Eygpt? Japan? China? i was expect China then Japan or something...

These games have all taken place during major turning points in history. The Crusades, the Renaissance and now the American Revolution. While there were major events in China I'm not sure how many of them had a impact on the rest of the world. This setting just makes since to for the current story, keeping the two sides at war. Something like China would be great for a game that wasn't dealing with the Templars.

I am really looking forward to AC3. I'm not clued up on the American Revolution at all, so hopefully i'll have a good history lesson while playing it. As we know AC is usually historically accurate in terms of people, events and locations. They follow a 30 second rule in wikipedia rule. If you can find it on wikipedia in 30 seconds it needs to be in the game.

I am excited to hear what new gameplay elements are in this game and hopefully they got rid of Den Defense but i fear it may play a bigger part in this game, especially if set during a war. :laugh:

The game will be really interesting storywise if their older games are taken as a benchmark.

Revelations was weak because they were connecting all the last dots and finishing the story. Brotherhood was spectacular. It was deep and had believable lovable characters. I got so caught up in the whole universe. That i seriously want to visit those places. Specially Rome and Florence. Also Istanbul. Just because of the game. And i got really close to the characters. When i finished revelations.. and then watched that movie embers. I felt the feeling of losing something. Like when you work on something and it ends. That sad feeling that its over now.

I hope they develop the characters just like that!..
This is coming from a gamer who hates games based in old times. I HATE games with sword fighting and such. ACII changed all of that.
