Re: Rumor Has It AC IV Will Be Pirate Themed
Very interesting. One very important and positive thing about this is that the golden age of pirates came BEFORE the revolutionary war by a couple of hundred years which means its breaking the trend set so far of every assassins creed sequel being set later in history. Of course this could also be not a new setting at all and using the same Character as 3 but set in the tail end of the pirate era.
I kinda agree with the devs on Japan, part of the appeal of Assassins Creed is getting to do ninja type stuff in settings outside Japan, an Assasins Creed in Japan would just be too similar to too many other games. Samurai Japan that is, I'd personally love a set of Assassin's Creed Games set in Modern day cities, by that I mean set ala Assasins Creed 2 and its various spin offs all being in the same time but different places, with one of the cities being Tokyo.
As noted above though Victorian Era London is the dream, assassins creed is built for a chase sequence on giant spinning clock tower pieces.
WW2 Paris is another great idea I've heard before.
And an Assassin's Creed 1 spin off in medieval York.
And of course going back to the Roman or Egyptian Empires, imagine scaling the Colosseum or the pyramids?
