ill buy it, play it, trade it, forget it just like unity
Just got announced this morning.
Victorian London, something of a Gangs of New York vibe to it, two protagonists that you can swap between, a grapple gun, and no multiplayer.
The fact that they opened the video by talking about how they screwed the pooch with Unity, as well as the fact that they aren't wasting resources on multiplayer, gives me some slight optimism, but I guess we'll see how it pans out.
ill buy it, play it, trade it, forget it just like unity
Got rid of boats and added horse and carrage....thanks Ubisoft...

This looks awesome, fuck you guys
an understated ensemble that puts the "b" in subtle
I will say that I like the weapon selection they showed off here, and how it fits with the time period. I was kinda worried they were going to continue with the idea of the character openly walking around with a small arsenal, as in the previous games. That more-or-less works in medieval and Renaissance settings, but that shit wouldn't fly in London in the 1860s, and it's nice to see that sort of thing taken into account.
The fact that there's no multiplayer at all is kind of getting my hopes up.
Rogue was amazing, it would have been better if the main campaign was longer and if it was on next gen. IMO it's damn close to black flag and I clearly understand why some folks would call it better. Both are great games you need to play.
I liked Rogue better as an Assassin's Creed game and because it improved on the already great ship combat mechanics in Black Flag. I can understand why people would prefer things in Black Flag like the Caribbean Pirate setting, less focus on a regular assassin's creed story or even the last gen graphics of Rogue. Black Flag was the best pirate simulator I've played that also happened to be an Assassin's creed game. They could probably split off and make some pirate boat games if they wanted but that would require a new IP, which these big companies are unfortunately reluctant to do. As for Syndicate, I'm looking forward to it. Ubisoft will probably make a much more enjoyable Victorian England game than The Order 1886. As always never pre-order and wait for the release to be stabilized.
Very close for me here since they both are fucking amazing however I am going to say Rogue is slightly better for the story.

game is out tomorrow. reviews seem fairly middle of the road so far, metacritic is around 80 right now and I'd expect it to stay there. My game arrives tomorrow and I'll be playing this weekend, always have a soft spot in my heart for AC. PS4 and Xbox One are 900p upscaled, the PC version will be the definitive one but its not out till late November by which time everyone is gonna be balls deep into Fallout 4 and Battlefront.
Another review here:
AssassinBuy, Wait for Sale, Rent, Never Touch? - YouTube
Ezio Triology was awesome
Indian was horrible
Pirate was great!
Unity, who played this shitty game?
Syndicate... should be good? i'm waiting for reviews PC ver. (biggest doubts are it's the same team that made the Indian Assassin)
its native american you racist
casino not dot-head
also that numbering system doesn't work when you factor in liberation, rogue, and the side scroller china thing
If you have not played rogue, play that instead and wait for this to plummet in price in 6 months like unity did.
Amazingly it seemed to work on day 1 (PS4), the twins are actually reasonably likeable (I hated Connor and was not a fan of Arno) and the gameplay so far has been AC but the rope gun has added some slightly interesting verticality to it.
I liked Assassin's Creed III but I can understand why some wouldn't. The Conner intro/tutorial is pretty choppy and he can be a pretty unlikable protagonist. However it introduces one of my favorite characters in the series, Haytham Kenway, and the story outside the Animus in III is pretty much the best in the series. Although, I haven't played Revelations, Unity or Syndicate so I can't compare it to those.
I liked 3 but when your protagonist makes Desmond seem like the likeable character there is a problem in my mind.
Jesus Christ I was hoping it was bad so I didn't have to play it before Fallout.
Getting some good reviews across the board.
P.s. Lol at the douchebag who negged me for joking about preordering the shitty looking DLC back in fucking May.

Reviews mean jack shit. And unfortunately so do most in the online avenue because you never know who to trust.
Actual non paid for reviews of actual players are stating it's better than Unity (Not hard to accomplish) with the same sluggish movement, lower graphical detail than in Unity, with a few new gimmicks. So far the only universal good thing coming out of it are the Twins, but mostly the female protagonist. New take downs, but completely repetitive after 15 minutes. The story is medicore, but the twins help with that a bit due to their character development. The ending of the game is a complete let down and you will be SUPER pissed you just wasted time on the game only to have it end the way it does.
$19.99 Regime. $19.99 on sale - 8 weeks. Play something else.
Apparently it released early or something? Swore it was out on Tuesday...
I have no interest in this until I see people here that don't automatically drool over anything new say it is good. Fuck them after unity
35% off on green man gaming already. Pm me for a code if that deal is not universal.
I just bought a new video card and have the option to get either this or Rainbow 6: Siege for free. Get this now, or wait? I like both genres fine, if the games are good.

I just saw a few reviews of the game, wtf you don't Assassinate ppl, instead you befriend them? This shit became rated PG?
I'm on mission 3, enjoying the game so far. It does involve modern era time, in fact the very few minutes of the game is modern era stuff (CGI though) not sure if its more integral later on in the game. You switch between Jacob and Evie every few missions, he's kinda bland and boring but she is a badass bitch - one of the first attacks I did with her had her stabbing a dude in the hand to keep him from moving and then using her cane to brain him to death. jesus!
If you hated assassins creed 2/R/B then this game is not for you. If you liked those games this feels very similar thematically, with updated combat and in victorian england instead of italy. Visually its not superb but passable, everything feels coated with a vaseline lens or something (on PS4) so not a fan of that. Voice acting is top notch so far. Story is ok, nothing great but not as shitty/generic as AC3 or Unity, they seem to be pushing better the Templar vs. Assassins main theme here.
Pretty good game for me so far, need a break from Destiny and got the weekend until Halo 5 is out. I wouldn't buy it digitally though, feels like a once-and-done game since its just single player. It'll be $20 either by black friday or early next year so can totally wait and not miss anything, but if you are a big assassins creed fan (I even have a hoodie!) I don't think you'll be disappointed.

Does those AC games are palyable with mouse and keyboard ?
Platinum'd the game on PS4, going to trade it into best buy for $43.50 (good until next saturday) which is about what I paid. Really enjoyed it, only AC I have platinum'd - its super easy compared to the rest in the series - no online/MP stuff, no real grinding other than destroying stuff on a vehicle.
Setting was great, story was pretty good, they are trying desperately to make something coherent mixing modern times and Assassins vs Templars but it comes across as pretty jumbled and incoherent. They really just need to reboot the series at this point but they are clearly setting up for a new modern era arc with the ending of Syndicate. Still, London is pretty awesome, the twins are cool, and there is a ton of fan service in the game esp for AC4 fans. 8/10 for me, while there are flaws in the game and its a very Ubisoft game (million collectibles, pushing real $$ for maps, boring combat) its still a fun Assassins Creed.
I hate how this franchise always puts the PC version on the back burner. Fucking Ubisoft. I guess they're getting a little better, we actually get it on PC only a month late, instead of not until early the following year like most of the previous releases.
Ahem... 1 year old Unity article?

Oh and sorta fuck Tuco too.
This is nearly 40% off on pc on gmg right now.
Not a great sign but I figured Id let people know in case someone is interested
Hope this is true, but it 4chan. AC 2016 cancelled, team is going to work on a reboot of AC for 2017 that will be set in Egypt and be open world, made by the Black Flag team.
Rumour: No Assassin's Creed in 2016, 2017 set in Egypt - Gamereactor UK -
If its true it also probably means an AC Collection and AC Rogue release for ps4/xbone (PC) this year.
That would be great. I, personally, thought that Black Flag was the best in the series.
I kind of liked Unity, the indoor environments were pretty great to play through. Syndicate I actually traded in before I finished it. I just couldn't get into the story or the characters.
Is the general consensus that unity is a funner game then syndicate. Kinda itching for an ass' creed game as I haven't played one since black flag.
what? no, syndicate is way way better than unity. unity is not good
I finished this game a few nights ago and finaly got the Plat last night. Its a very fun game. I loved Black flag and Rogue, but could not finish Unity.
Syndicate is not as good as the two boat games (which i am a bit of a sucker for) but head and sholders above Unity last time i played it.
If you have a Ps3 or 360 get rogue first, its dirt cheap now with a few sales being even $10. Buy Syndicate this game when its on sale which has been pretty oftne.
The plat is super easy on this one as well, you dont need all the collectables.
The economy is way out of wack however, i bought the $$ making gang skills early and hit a bunch of chests hard, i ended up having more cash than i could spend half way through making a ton of rewards/chest near the end pointless.
Really easy to just leave the game on and accumulate cash on the train while you do other things. Thats not a terribly new mech for AC but i noticed it more in this game. The train paid me $68,000 one time and the most exspenive thing you can buy is only $16,000 with most being $10,000. It might have been a bug.
Anyway, better than Unity, a solid game if you like AC, way less annoying climbing things in the wrong direction movement. It has sparked my desire to go back to Unity and try it again, i hear some stuff got patched.
Yeah got it last nght. Was 33 bucks on gmg. I am kind digging it but a bit difficult to get into the story which there isn't really much of one. It's no where on the same level as black flag or even AC 3 story/character wise. It feels kinda weird to be thrown into the thick of it with no character building, its like "oh hai, get that piece of ancient eden" or whatever. The game permeates a rush hobbled together vibe everywhere which is no wonder considering they were putting them out once a year.
Finished this a few weeks ago and I think I gave it a 3/5 on Trueachievements which I still think is fair. This game is held up by the improved game play, art assets and sound assets but the story falls flat.
It looks really good. The art team did a great job building a fantasy London playground. It's not as pretty as Paris was in Unity but it captures a grimy Victorian London pretty well. And as you cross the city the background music can suck you in to the setting.
The game is a fun murder simulator. If youíve played any assassinís creed game the combat system hasnít changed much beyond fine tuning. Canes, knuckle weapons and Kukriís are the games primary weapons with bombs, guns and knives making up the secondary weapons. Multi-kills make a return but they work a little differently in that you have to get multiplied bad guys into a near death state to trigger the multi-kill. The game features a split skill system that specializes Jacob for brawling and gun use and Evie for throwing knives and stealth. The game is easy enough that both characters can do everything well but if you want to go loud play Jacob and if you want to play stealth play Evie. Switching between the characters is very easy but the game forces you to use each character for different missions.
Movement has been streamlined. This is Assassinís Creed for the ADD generation. You get a grappling hook that lets you climb the tallest buildings in a few bounds and lets you cross long spans from building to building in a zip-line fashion. Pretty ridiculous and really out of character in the game but it makes moving around a lot easier. You also get access to horse drawn carriages that you can hijack GTA style from anyone in the city. If you played Revelations theyíre the same as the ones present in a few story missions. I wouldíve preferred a horse as a transport device as was in previous games.
The story sucks. Iíve played all the Assassinís Creed games and this is the one I consider the worst in terms of story. Just like Unity you get no access to the present timeline beyond cut scenes. The in Animus story is a mess of one dimensional characters and the Templars are back to having no depth. I donít hate most of the characters in the game I just think they were poorly used. I would really enjoy it if they re-added present future sections to the series but Iíd settle for getting characters with depth and well written stories.
It's more of the same. If you didn't like the previous games you won't like this.
As I mentioned the game has a skill system which youíll easily fill out by the end of the story. Thereís also a fillable skill system to improve your gang and city holdings to make your time in the city easier.
Side activates include bounty hunts, Templar murder, save the children, gang area takeovers, boat/carriage hijack or escort, hand to hand fighting tournaments, races and a small WW1 story simulation.
Jack the Ripper DLC:
The only story DLC for the game is a small story about the origin of Jack the Ripper. The writing is much better than anything in the main game and features new combat movies including a Ďbrutal takedowní which is basically a QTE mutilation killing. During the DLC youíre restricted to a small section of London and it has a very Halloween vibe. Highly recommended if you have Syndicate.
If you don't like the Ubisoft formula don't buy this but if you find some enjoyment in their games it's worth buying at a reduced price.
Yeah I pretty much agree with Sukik. 3/5 is about what I gave it.
It should have been set in China or India.
