What Should Be In The Next Assassin’s Creed? Survey Says…

December 6, 2010Written by Joseph Peterson

Both Assassin’s Creed II and Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood came out a year apart from one another. Although AC: Brotherhood just came out in November, the title has been receiving very high scores in the review department. Ubisoft knows that this series is easily one of their most popular series, and is looking to continue the story to the very successful Assassin’s Creed franchise. A recent survey sent out asked what improvements should be made within the series. Could this possibly be an indication of the next Assassin’s Creed title, and if so where will it take place?

The survey that was sent out stated the following:

Would you like to see ____ in the sequel to the ASSASSIN”S CREED: BROTHERHOOD?

1) An upgrade to the assassin’s blade that increases the fluidity and speed of free-running

2) An enhanced Eagle Vision: see the patrol paths of guards, spot clues to complex navigation puzzles, detect when characters are lying during interrogations, etc.

3) An intuitive crafting tool that lets you create custom bombs from dozens of ingredients found throughout the game world

4) Tactical use of a variety of bombs suited to unique contexts and situations (smoke, poison, flash, explosive, etc.)

5) An additional objective where you and your Assassins guild fight against the Templars to gain control of a city, district by district

6) Playing as a new Assassin, in a different historical time period

7) A continuation of Ezio’s story as the leader of the Assassins, set outside of Italy

8 ) Deeper connectivity between all the Assassin’s Creed projects (eg. an action you make on the Facebook game will impact your game experience on the console; events that you read about in the comics will be related to the storyline of the videogames, etc.)

9) Online Cooperative Mode

10) Offline Cooperative Mode

11) The availability of new maps for the Multiplayer

12) A choice of additional Multiplayer characters with new skill-sets

13) Playing new Multiplayer modes

14) A deeper team-based Multiplayer experience (guilds / squads that have common objectives, new tools for clan management, etc.)

15) A customization of the Multiplayer experience (logos, avatars, objects, team names, etc.)

Given some of the things stated within this survey, what would you personally like to see implemented from Ubisoft in the next Assassin’s Creed title?
