Importance of Assassin’s Creed 3 not in the past

It seems like Assassin’s Creed 3 will contain more modern elements than previous encounters and further focus is going to be on Desmond in the present time than experienced before, although this may amount to a quizzical response considering the setting of the American Revolution has received plenty of interest and more attention would be expected here.

By the sounds of it, this shows how extensive the next installment of Assassin’s Creed will be, and an article on Forbes writes about more of a present day experience to be expected. The author is not overly concerned with the modern day action as he prefers exploring historical elements of these titles yet both scenarios make this an admirable unique style that fans of the series are now familiar with.

Even though the article goes on to mention that Ubisoft has said this is going to be the last game featuring Desmond, his response to this news is a happy one, probably because he is more concerned with the setting of the American Revolution. Generally, the present day moments break up the game for me and give it a more captivating outlook adding mystery and excitement. Some may regard this as their favorite aspect of Assassin’s Creed and will look forward to more Desmond gameplay.

In other news Xbox Magazine document what the director classed as the most boring settings to be used in an AC title, even though people on the net suggest that WW2, Japan and Egypt are decent scenarios, which goes to show fans are getting their voices heard when it comes to franchise direction. Creative director, Alex Hutchinson has told them that he would hate to set an Assassin’s Creed game in feudal Japan although he gave India some thought and Assassin’s Creed 3 writer Corey May said that he would love to do India. All of the settings sound good to me along with Imperial China and Revolutionary Russia even Medieval or Victorian Britain would be a good choice, can you think of some great or unusual settings?

Only last week we reported on a collection of Assassin’s Creed 3 demo previews and a positive response was noted, as the amount of work that has been put into this next installment was easily recognized with the setting and gameplay impressing the majority. Referring to the amount of modern elements that will be involved in Assassin’s Creed 3, do you feel this will be a welcome aspect of the game?

    I didn’t like Assassin’s Creed 1 all that much. The reason why I was so excited for the release of the second game was due to the fact that at the end of the first game Desmond obtains eagle vision, and starts to see some Illuminati illustrations.

    This told me two things, the game is far crazier than just assassinating people and climbing buildings. It’s going to be about conspiracies…(and what I found later that it was about aliens too!) And it showed me that Desmond was going to have his fair share of assassinations. Although I didn’t quite figure out how a modern day assassin would play it, with ak47 and oozies and all. So i’m interested to see how the game developers would create a modern assassin. afterall, you can’t have a game about 2012 without modern gameplay!
