I liked Origins but man I hope this doesn't come out in 2018. Has Ubisoft learned nothing about series fatigue

Origin was a lot of fun to play as a newcomer to the series.

Really wish they'd go modern day for once tho

Did Origins ever get that Historical mode they were talking up as an educational tool? I always thought that would be pretty neat to explore around in since the Assassin's Creed games are usually pretty good about making an interesting recreation of old settings, even if the gameplay turns out a little stale after a while.

It got that, it's pretty neat for what it is. It strips the combat from the game, allows unrestricted fast travel, changes a few things around for better accuracy, and has a ton of commentary.

They also added a cheat mode to the game which allows you to mutate a lot of the games systems and mechanics, spawn things, and generally screw around.

Oh and the DLC wasn't bad either.

There are also some things on that list that were at least hinted at by earlier announcements such as the new Life is Strange game being revealed soon (though most likely that's gonna happen during Square's conference considering it's one of their most popular western IPs). But yeah, otherwise I think that list is mostly bullshit.

I'm glad that I don't have to make LiS2, because that just seems like a minefield. What even is the core brand of LiS? High-school narrative game? Narrative game with supernatural twist? Murder mystery with a character focus?

1. Coming of age melodrama.
2. Twist of the supernatural.
3. Hella gay.

Those are the only expectations, the story is free to go in any direction.

Possibly none of the above considering they've said the next game will feature a brand new cast and setting (though whether or not that means it won't have anything to do with the plot of the first game remains to be seen). Though then again, Square doesn't actually make those games so much as they just publish them and own the rights to the series so it could be possible that it winds up dropping during Sony's conference after all.

I would probably add episodic and choice based gameplay with some kind of gimmick attached to that list as well. But otherwise yeah, they pretty much have free reign to do whatever they want with this one.

Neat. I've thought about Origins but I don't own a PS4 and I heard the PC version was just terrible in terms of performance because of the DRM stuffed in there so I passed. Maybe down the road I'll get a chance to play it.

It's not because of the DRM, nor was it a universal issue. It's already been on frequent and fairly deep sale on Steam, next time it rolls around you can buy it and refund it if it doesn't work well but it is, AFAIK, fixed for pretty much everyone.

Ya I didn't buy it(Origins) on release because of the performance but if I remember correctly in the steam thread people said it was pretty much completely fixed.

I just hope there is a leak for the new From game and that it isn't a sony exclusive.

On AC: Odyssey:

Kotaku posted:

Rumors about the next Assassin’s Creed have been circulating for months now—some real, some fake—but the one we’ve been hearing since January from our own sources is that the game is indeed set in Greece, and that it’ll be even more of a drastic departure for the series than Origins. We’ve heard the same details from three people who have played the game, and several more who have heard about it secondhand. While Origins added Witcher-like RPG elements, Odyssey will take things even further, those people said, bringing dialogue options to the series for the first time. You’ll be able to play as either a male or a female protagonist, although the builds we’ve heard about did not feature Origins’ main characters Bayek or Aya, but new heroes.

If it is, as suspected, the Rogue to Origins' Black Flag, there will probably be no cross-over at all. Basically a new map, story and characters, generally the same mechanics with some refinements/improvements.

Miyazaki said From are working on 3 games a year ago or 2 years ago I forgot. They later had a statement saying Armored Core is not dead so that's why people think it is one of the 3 games. The rumor I read a while back said a Soulslike game, armored core and a third game. Also possibility of one of those being vr or and sony exclusive.

This, but the character you created is the one that dies, and the one you hosed around on is the one you have to play as. Oh, and the Death happens about 6-7 hours into the game to discourage people from just starting over when they realize what happened.
