Welcome to Harry Potter Forum! Below you will find many interesting threads and discussions. Enjoy.
Guys I really fucking miss Potter. Watching all the emotional scenes on YouTube and remembering reading specific parts of the book and finishing the series outside on the beautiful afternoon of July 23rd at 1:34 pm, dammit I miss it all...
Even thought its called AC4, I feel that's because of the different character, but I imagine the feel to be that of Brotherhood or Revelations. Maybe our next big thing like French Revolution, Victorian London, or Russian Revolution or a big point of history will be AC5.
Regardless, Im being optimistic. It's the 1700s - people were explorers and travelers. The days of few cities by horse are over - different countries will be the new thing. I think it's very exciting. In AC2 and AC3, the different cities weren't all too different. Florence and Venice were essentially the same (minus the water) and Forli and Tuscany were the essentially the same, and in AC3 Boston and New York felt very similar and then the frontier. This new direction has potential for 3+ very large distinct, unique looking locations which we surprisingly haven't had yet!
Will there be more naval? Sure, but I think it's only for this game. It's only a matter of time when they move to another big piece of history, either AC5 or AC6 if AC5 is going to follow AC3 ala Brotherhood and Revelations.
I don't think they'll heavily influence naval. Just imagine all the naval missions in AC3 being apart of the main story rather than side missions, and maybe a few more. But truthfully, I see it as a mode of transportation - an exciting form of transportation. Horse riding over long distances (mountains in AC2 - don't get me started) is boring. Ship fighting? Much more exciting.
My main hope is the potential of multiple cities that are culturally different or unique. I'd endure tons of naval if it mean multiple Rome sized cities! Truthfully I'm excited - it's Assassins Creed! It'll have assassin type stuff - how did Haytham get his skills? From a true assassin - regardless of whether he was a pirate or not. There's going to be assassin parts like the old games, but with the modernization Of ships. I think it has huge potential.
When I first heard the big part of AC3 was the frontier, I was skeptical because I wouldn't spend time in a Forest. God was i wrong, the frontier was the best part and tree climbing was fun as hell. I'm skeptical about this, but Ubisoft hasn't let me down yet so I'll give them a fair shot to wow me.
