Assassin’s Creed 3 is coming; everyone knows that. The franchise is Ubisoft’s biggest, there have always been plans for a trilogy and Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood is not the final part of that trilogy. We all know how sequels work: the next game in a series will (well, it should) contain new gameplay features and mechanics.
Users over on NeoGAF have posted an online survey that was put out by Ubisoft; it poses a number of suggestions for new features in â€œthe sequel to Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhoodâ€. Those taking the survey were asked which of the fifteen options they’d like most. Which would you like to see?
- An upgrade to the assassin’s blade that increases the fluidity and speed of free-running
- An enhanced Eagle Vision: see the patrol paths of guards, spot clues to complex navigation puzzles, detect when characters are lying during interrogations, etc.
- An intuitive crafting tool that lets you create custom bombs from dozens of ingredients found throughout the game world
- Tactical use of a variety of bombs suited to unique contexts and situations (smoke, poison, flash, explosive, etc.)
- An additional objective where you and your Assassins guild fight against the Templars to gain control of a city, district by district
- Playing as a new Assassin, in a different historical time period
- A continuation of Ezio’s story as the leader of the Assassins, set outside of Italy
- 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.)
- Online Cooperative Mode
- Offline Cooperative Mode
- The availability of new maps for the Multiplayer
- A choice of additional Multiplayer characters with new skill-sets
- Playing new Multiplayer modes
- A deeper team-based Multiplayer experience (guilds / squads that have common objectives, new tools for clan management, etc.)
- A customization of the Multiplayer experience (logos, avatars, objects, team names, etc.)
I would have thought that option six was a given, but then again this did ask about the â€œsequel to Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhoodâ€ and not a whole new Assassin’s Creed per se. Perhaps Ubisoft is looking to squeeze as much out of the Renaissance setting before ending the Assassin’s Creed tilogy?
Me? I’d quite like a crafting tool for custom bombs, but please God do not let them Facebook game cross over thing. Yuck.
