Ubisoft has put out a niblet of information revealing the next chapter in Assassin’s Creed that will release at some point before March 2018. Rumors lean towards an Egyptian theme which would gel well within the AC universe and covers an interesting time in world history. However, the open-world game will need to improve its gameplay structure in these key areas:
- Too much content-Can we please get more story-line cohesion that isn’t muddled with pointless collectibles, enigmas,cockades, and crowd events? The game loses direction quickly and I just love looking through a map riddled with random nonsense to the point where I can’t even figure out where next I’m supposed to go in the story. Tone it down Ubisoft, Christ..
- Full cooperative gameplay-including all story missions. Adapt the multiplayer system that Ghost Recon: Wildlands uses and make it to where you can play with up to four players in a mission. If the party is less than that, then give the option to utilize AI assistance as well. If it’s a brotherhood, why do we do everything solo?
- Horror-If it’s setting is actually in Egypt, let’s gets some terrifying mummies added into the mix. Ubisoft shouldn’t be afraid to add horror into the story. Let’s give this next game more flavor.
- Build an army-We need something epic that drives the story of this game. Bend the rules a bit and let’s get more npcs on screen fighting for you and attacking you. If they want to give us side content let it be to build something greater than ourselves and to bring some war! If we are 100% cloak and daggers all the time than the game is going to get tiring at some point for most people. We saw some awesome pirate ship battles in Black Flag, so we know the creators can think outside the box again.
We know it’s easy to be critical and we’re coming from viewpoints of not the greatest fans of the series, but we’d like to think this would make people excited no matter what side they’re on. In its ten years of existence, we’d like to actually want to finish an AC game for once! Tell us what you think? Is the game style already suited for your needs? Or do you find it tiring? What would you change? Heard any more news about the new Assassin’s Creed? Holler at us @custodiexitus on Twitter.com. We’d love to hear from you!
