I have mixed feelings about this. A new setting would be great, but I thought Ubi left the world of AC very much unexplored.

They put a lot of work in making that world look as good as it did, and I thought they didn't fully utilize it.

I liked the original assassins creed, but it did have some problems..hopefully this will fix them.
but yeah, its ubi.. not expecting too much to be updated.

"Thrawn, Assassin's aside, considering that combat in Creed is one of the things that makes it great, the French Revolution fits quite we'll. Also, who's to say that we won't still be playing as Altair and Desmond? I'm curious as to what the artifact has done to Altairs mortality... And what will happen to Desmond.

lol, I'm getting flashes of The Highlander..."
I love this post. 

It gives me hope that Altair might actually stick around.  Probably the best thought I've had all day.

There's a lot more to change than just making a less anticlamactic ending for me.

Why not put less focus on the climbing which, by the end of the game was tedious and just plain boring. The story and narrative of the game should be more linear, as their 'open world' was just a boring space filled with people with annoying voices which it didn't help to do anything but want to stab them in the neck. Pleeeeaaase Ubisoft, make your next game less crap.

Cool!

I hope they do it right this time. AC was terribly loose on the actual history.

Posted by Soap

I still want at least one of the games in this trilogy to be set in the modern day, we need to continue the story from the first!

Edited by Cleric

I'm going to remember this post when AC2 comes out and we'll find out that it involves cavemen and stealth bone club action.

LOL Pachter.

I really want to see what happens in the future, since he got his eagle vision back we could be looking at some future fighting

As long as the missions aren't repetative, I LOVE the universe Assasin's Creed has created and don't care what timeline they use.  Still just for the fact the "real" time line is still set in the near future it can give a large forgiveness to whatever or any past timeline given.  Everything from the past is presumably tied into what will be AC3 and those pasts tied into our future.  The first game was done so very well if it wasn't for the repetative missions and worthless flag hunting.  Cross my fingers its better the second time around, still its a good universe regrdless.

I loved the first one as long as the art direction is as stellar

Posted by Bill_Hickz

My prediction, same character but different accestor.

Posted by Beechbone

Since I played AC I just can't wait for the sequel. It's very interesting that they're changing the setting to this period in history. I'm buying it on day 1 :)

This sound so cool!

viva la assasine'.  i lol'd at the picture,  he just standing there.

Posted by harrison25

hopefully the gameplay, controls, objectives, and AI are far superior to the first game.

ASScreed has such potential...

sad face.

Altair better not use a fucking musket.
YOU SAID THERE WOULD BE CROSSBOWS UBISOFT.

Edited by ElectricHaggis

I'd be really interested to play a new Assassins Creed.  If they put in a decent amount of stuff to do, unlike the repetitive original, it would be awesome.

Posted by NormanOfTorn

The first Assassin's Creed is one of the best game on Xbox 360 and I expect the second one to be nothing short of that.

Posted by oraknabo

I don't see any reason not to expect 16th century feudal Japan. There were clear hints that the sequels would involve South America and Japan.

Posted by ToRo

sacrebleu! lol

Posted by giyanks22

Sounds cool

Edited by Sharpshooter

I'd say it'll take place in the caribbean and the new player character would be dressed like a pirate. This way if they were going with mulitpule cities again they could have them on seperate islands and have the player travel between them via a big pirate ship that the player is the captain of.

Posted by RoninKengo

Great choice of setting.  The Napoleonic era is not something you see too often in action games... too often relegated to RTS.  I demand accurate musket usage and physics though!

Posted by InFamous91

I agree with Ryan, "I just hope they can come up with a less anticlimactic ending for the sequel". While I'll be waiting for Assassin Creed 2, I will be playing the new Prince of Persia next week.

Posted by RagingLion

Surely accurate musket usage is against the laws of physics ^^

With no silencers around a good backstab would still be preferred primary method of assassination in this time period I reckon.

Posted by addictedtopinescent

Nice,  can't wait for it to come out.

Posted by Jimbo

I always assumed we would see at least one more ancestor (Desmond obviously being the link throughout the series) before we see Desmond's own game.  I'm happy with any era so long as it isn't Ninja-land (done already) and so long as they don't switch from primarily melee combat to ranged combat.

Could Desmond possibly have a Templar ancestor in AC2, so that you have no defined 'side' in AC3?  Or are the Templars already too set as 'The Bad Guys'?

What even happened at the end of Assassin's Creed? I got to the end and received th completion of the game achievement etc but then i was just back in the op room and had nothing else to do. Is that how it's supposed to fnish or did i miss something?

Posted by Bulldog19892

Viva la Assassin.

Posted by Mexalen

I know most people didn't like the story of AC, but if they would tell another chapter in that story, and just change the gameplay to suit the timeframe, that would be pretty rad. I'd prefer to see a sequel that continues the story, then a sequel that continues the gameplay. That would be unique, for a change..

Posted by myslead

wow, i was always joking about how the next assassin's creed was going to be in the 1700 during la renaissance, guess i was more right than joking.
i wonder how they will work it out though, with the introduction of guns and stuff like that.

Posted by hyperslug

The narrow streets of 1700 century paris would be just as fun to jump around in and the atmosphere would be so awesome... with the smell of revolution in the air :-)..... To the Guilioutine!!! ehmm... Time machine!!

Edited by Belonpopo

I predicted Creed 2 to be in an oriental setting due to the oriental building drawn in blood in the end and there is a name of a dynstay ruler at the end of the game.

If you haven't explored the room with Eagle's Vision, you should probably do that.

I can see how this one will be so much better, ubisoft are pretty good at improving past mistakes, so yeah!
This could be awsome instead of repetitive to the extremes of me sometimes waking up and finding that my 360 is still running and altair has just been standing in a particular location for 3 hours straight doing nothing lol.
Anyway, to the people who think altair is the main character again. Umm, HELLOOOO! the time periods are so far apart that if altair's offspring was the main character then that character would call Altair his great-grandadx5 or something, lol.

An assassin in France..HA.. they'll make it good somehow right?

Posted by zityz

No matter what time frame they have it set in, they need to continue to elaborate on the modern era part of the game as well, and not leaving it hanging, and maybe try to make some sense of all that Eagle Vision nonsense at the end of the game. Also at some point, I would love to see a modern version, with Desmond, somehow becoming an assassin by unlocking all the knowledge within him.

Posted by John

Yup, Mikey P sure knows how to drop some knowledge to the world.

Posted by Jedted

I'll admit that when i saw the mixed reviews for the first game i didn't think too highly about it but after i played it myself i saw how compeling the story is and once i finished it i couldn't wait for the sequel.  Glad to see it's actually in development and that they're changing up the setting to keep in interesting.

While the animus bits will probebly be totally new i hope they continue to expand on everything you learned in the present day about the modern Templars.  And also learn more about the previous test subjects who went into the animus before Desmond.

Anticlimactic? Right, try to keep the reviews more objective buddy.

Besides, I doubt a French Revolution game for the second one. Too close to modern day...

Posted by Worm

I thought it will occure in 2012, and you'll play as Desmund. I mean, that seemed like it.

Posted by Eriktion

This franchise is golden, considering the "technology" that the game is based on, you could have any time period and any genre mechanic. How about taking it back to the year 0020. Jesus H Christ is the final boss - Controversial? HELL YEAH!

I agree, one where you play as Desmund would be the best, since they kind of forgot to finish the story in the first, one, or so it seemed. Its like, "Hey, you can has magical assassin vision, there is special words everywhere, and this evil dude is going to take over the world kthxitsover."

Edited by frantic

There is so much stuff that happened in the 1700s, French Revolution, American Revolution, The Great Northern War, The Carnatic Wars, The 7 years war. Hopefully they get rid of some of the repetitive gameplay and we should have an awesome game!

"COULD NOT POSSIBLY CARE LESS.

Like a lot of people, it didn't take me long to realize that I was doing the exact same thing in different - but indistinguishable - cities. Less a sandbox game than a "look at me crawl on buildings!" novelty on rails. Yeah, hopping around rooftops was a curiosity for a couple hours, but that in and of itself is hardly "gameplay". And once that wears off, it's just a half-assed game. The only thing Assassin's Creed truly had going for it was a hot producer chick (Jade Raymond).

If I hear good things about a sequel and I can find it used for around $20 after awhile, I might give it a chance. Otherwise, I'm going to just assume it's a derivative piece of crap from an over-hyped piece of crap."

Totally disagree, but have stated why so many times now, that I don't feel like saying it again.

Why am I less interested now  that I feel this series reminds me of Highlander.....

Dude.  That almost makes me more excited. 

I vote Christopher Lambert as Altair.  Assassin's Creed would be a shoe-in for Game of the Year, then.  Haha.

1700s?  Wow that sounds like shit.  That and set in France?  They just made a big hole to climb out of to impress me....
