I'm kinda interested to see where this goes. I'm a pirate enthusiast as well as an AC fan. I just hope it continues to go forward in time instead of back. It seems to be a new character due the blondish hair so that's cool, I didn't like Connor all that much. Maybe it'll have Jean LaFitte since it could be past the Golden Age of piracy, he was alive after the American Revolution, born 1776 actually.

It feels a little strange due to the ending of the third game.
ManofSteel22 - 2/28/2013, 8:09 AM
I feel that,because the boat thing was so [frick]ing good in AC3,they have just decided to centre it around that game play,not complaining,the more assassins creeds the better

You will play Haytham's father in the game.

Enter Edward "Blackbeard" Teach, "Calico Jack" Rackham, Henry Morgan, William Kidd and Bartholomew "Black Bart" Roberts.

Cool not bad but you know what would be cool an AC game set in either WW1 or WW2.

I haven't played all the games. I beat the first one and working on the second. I'm playing them in order (although, I have played a little bit of Brotherhood, Revalations and AC3). So far, while Ezio has the more interesting story, I like Altair more. I really hope the movie doesn't suck, I already have to go trough Tancharoen Kombat. I don't want a bad Assassin's Creed movie too. You could easily make an epic trilogy out of the first game, the second movie would chronicle the life and journey of Ezio (that one would be tricky cause his story spans into three games) and Assassin's Creed 3. It would make a very epic trilogy.

I hated to sail with the ship in AC3. Storm missions were annoying as [frick]. If they make the gameplay better with them im all for pirates.
AlexDeLarge87 - 2/28/2013, 8:26 AM
Would like to see it focusing more on Desmond thou.

Hope this doesn't interfere with the assassin being able to run around the city.
TonyChu - 2/28/2013, 8:53 AM
Who is going to be on the Animus then.
HULK2099 - 2/28/2013, 8:53 AM
Jack Sparrow cameo please
SmellofDuty - 2/28/2013, 8:55 AM
Sweet, I've always wanted to play as an assassin in London. I hope that it stretches all the way from England to the Caribbean. Really looking forward to this now. Was kind of hoping for it to continue forward in time but this'll do.
TopCat89 - 2/28/2013, 9:26 AM
Not a fan of AC3....no where near as good as it's prequels or my expectations.....however the boat missions were my favourite part of the game, so i'm all for a pirates AC!

AWESOME!

"Yo Ho, Yo Ho, a pirate's life for me - We pillage, we plunder we rifle and loot

Drink up me hearties, yo ho We kidnap and ravage and don't give a hoot

Drink up me hearties, yo ho

Yo Ho, Yo Ho, a pirate's life for me We extort, we pilfer we filch and sack

Drink up me hearties, yo ho Maraud and embezzle and even high-jack

Drink up me hearties yo ho

Yo Ho, Yo Ho, a pirate's life for me We kindle and char inflame and ignite

Drink up me hearties, yo ho We burn up the city we're really a fright

Drink up me hearties, yo ho We're rascals, scoundrels villains, and knaves

Drink up me hearties yo ho We're devils and black sheep - really bad eggs

Drink up me hearties yo ho

Yo Ho, Yo Ho, a pirate's life for me We're beggars and blighters and ne'er do-well cads

Drink up me hearties, yo ho Aye, but we're loved by our mommies and dads

Drink up me hearties, yo ho"..

Shame as I liked Connor, just wondering how they will continue the story after 3 though.
Darth258 - 2/28/2013, 9:45 AM
@TonyChu: Abstergo downloaded Desmond's dad dna memories, so anyone.. maybe that Cloud guy that hacks in after the ending.
Odin - 2/28/2013, 12:11 PM
Well now we're talking
Deadpool727 - 2/28/2013, 12:20 PM
Well, I would have preferred feudal Japan or Ancient Persia or something, I found Conner very boring and the time setting a bit "eh"...

As long as they have an awesome special edition with some type of statuette then I will be all over this.

It looks like the PS3 version will have an extra 60 minutes of gameplay that no other version will have.
