I'm honestly not sure what people see in this new one.
I wouldn't mind being proven wrong though. I also think for most the story was an important factor which isn't as strong anymore.
Then Ubi didn't outright deny it, but certainly didn't tease anything promising, which deflated my hype again.
So my hype has gone from pre-ordering to play on Xbox One X for $60 on November 7th...to I'll buy a code down the road for PC for ~$20.
I just mean I'd like a story and characters that are interesting again.
I donít think itís trying to be a return to form at all? If anything, the message the devs seem to be sending is that the aforementioned form was stagnating.
So far the guy in Origins feels like the assassin in 3, all brooding and edgy with a boring personality and what little we've seen of the plot totally doesn't interest me.
Based on what I've seen, this game simultaneously makes big changes and yet not enough. Still looks like half-brained stealth mechanics coupled with another brand of unsatisfying combat.
Cannot wait for Origins!
I can say from playing this game quite a bit at E3, enemies don't just stand around doing nothing as you fight. They don't wait, they will gang up on you. Not sure about this particular instance, but they are pretty damn good about attacking simultaneously and forcing the player to perform one or two quick attacks before having to dodge and create some distance by running.
Tap X button to kill while other enemy is just watching?
Yeah thats not really a legit representative of good combat.
Also pretty much sold on this combat.
Especially with that Skyrim-esque ending animation on the last enemy standing.
Origins is trying to encapsulate an Action Rpg right?.
Give me Dragon's Dogma tier gameplay and Horizon style archery and I'm good.
This is exactly how I feel. No hype :(
Not even remotely interested in it. I was hoping this game could be a turning point for this series, but I'm not really seeing anything that fixes the series problems or pushes it forward in any meaningful way. Combat still looks like a boring, button mashing affair, with dull tacked-on RPG and crafting systems that every game has these days. Freerunning still seems clunky as hell. Stealth still looks basic and clumsy. Story still looks like an incredibly droll affair, and the setting doesn't do much for me. The open-world design seems to Ubisoft to a T, and I've more than had my fill of that. Meh, will wait for a sale, and pick it up for $20 or less. No recent AC has been worth more than that to me.
Expecting it to score high 80s.
me too! Syndicate is pretty good been playing the pc version for the last week or so. I like a lot about it.
I'm having a blast with Syndicate. But I'll be taking my time with it and not rushing on ACO
Damnit. Wallet cries.
And Wolfenstein...crazy day.
The combat is my biggest worry. Is there a counter/execution system in Origins? All the combat footage I've seen reminds me of Witcher 3's combat.
I’m really excited for it. Still have my concerns with the combat but I’ve become much more interested in the melee system after replaying some Unity and Syndicate and the combat was just so dull. And I tend to like the Arkham-style attack/counter style that the games have been doing since AC3. But the weapons you equipped didn’t matter at all, the fighting was such a slog. The new system in Origins looks fresh and exciting for the series. I still think AC3’s was the most thrilling and satisfying but this one looks engaging and like it has sole nuance
Ehhh... That just isnt for me :/ Are multi/combo take downs gone?
Also pretty much sold on this combat.
So I am an early AC fan it seems. If the reviews come out and say it's like 2 and Brotherhood and this from 1 but better and these things from 3 but better etc etc I will look into it. Otherwise I am waiting for a sale to try it.
Not a drive by if there was already a thread and many threads about this game and other's having MT's/Loot Crates in single player games on top of DLC/Season passes.
That drive by tho.
I don't support that shit, so there for unfortunate Assassins Creed:origins will not be bought.
I for one would rather put my money into other Single player games such as Wolfenstein, Mario Odysessy, Yakuza series or even Horizon:ZD DLC than support a game that puts those in a game that has no bearing being in.
