Assassin's Creed 4 Wii U confirmed

Postby deKay » 28 Feb 2013, 13:11

In the opening hour of ACIII I was thinking - eurgh. I hope this isn't going to be all about pirates.

Then ACIV was announced.

Sigh.
Game Over, Yeah!!

Although Pirates are overdone in... everything, a more historically accurate look at them (If you discount the parkour and ancient conspiracies) especially when coupled with AC3's excellent ship combat looks like a wining combination.

Is it wrong to just want an Assassin's Creed game where you just run along rooftops and assassinate people?

You know, like AC 1, 2, B and R.

Well, you've played them so wouldn't it be nice to have something different as well?

Didn't bother with AC3 because the setting was... well, ridiculous, quite frankly, but this one looks like it could be better. Holding off on judging until I see it in action though.

Excellent. The sailing and sea battles are one of the better moments from ACIII. Glad to see they'll probably be returning. AND hopefully this time it's going to be built from the ground up to be a Wii U game, which will smooth over the problems ACIII has as a port.
Looking forward to this.

How exactly was the American Revolution a ridiculous setting? Admittedly, it wasn't the best, but it was still interesting.

Maybe. I'm not really liking how ACIII is progressing (I'm only a few hours in, though), and if IV is further in the same direction, then I'm Banatyning it.

Isn't this just more of the same?! the AC series has been milked for all its worth now, with the end of the Desmond story arc Ubi should have shelved the series for a few years before bringing out a new game, i'm personally finished with the series once ive completed AC3.

Watch Dogs is what i'm waiting for now.

Since you play as Kenway's dad, around 50 years before ACIII's opening.

I've never played any of the Assassin's Creed games :o But it's good news to see this game coming to the Wii U.

Is this really AC4 or AC3.5? Looking forward to it nonetheless, a good great few weeks for Wii U.

"I'm an assassin. Don't mind me as I run across rooftops in both Rome and Jerusalem, and also charge through armies on foot"

... yeah, far less ridiculous. If you play the game it actually works well. And you never actually charge armies on horseback!

All this support from Ubisoft for the wii u is fantastic. While it's still hard to get over what they did with Rayman, all this support from them all of a sudden is a good enough apology for me.
I'm working on a theme for my account here.
