Could be the location for History, Scottish War of Independence (William Wallace and such)

Would be the third time we've attacked the English, serves 'em right for owning most of the world at some time or another.

Sounds like the first half of a location using Latitude. It could be North 54.883333 or +54.883333. Which is 54 Degrees 52' 60".

Then again, I could just be reading too much in to this.

I hope Ubisoft uses their resources to get good voice actors. Nothing I hate more than bad fake accents.

I don't think it's about AC 5. On AC Initiates site, there is an ongoing modern day story. At this moment the story takes place in Russia. Few weeks before it was in Japan.

Russia is where the comic book Assassin has been based in. Wonder if it will be the same character or a new one

So they'll just reuse most of the stuff from assassins creed 3 since it also took place in a snowy area.

What a surprise.

I look forward to characters named Nikolai, Vladimir, and Sergei.

Protvino is most relevant for its particle accelerator.

I'm assuming this ties into something incredibly dumb with the modern day plot.

Makes sense. Hopefully the period stuff doesn't center around Moscow. St. Petersburg would be a much better setting.

So..Russia is just speculation as of now, right? Or is it confirmed?
Anyways. GET HYPE!! : D
I would love a next gen AC...one that takes advantage of the new consoles like The Division and Watch Dogs!

Well, look at AC 2 + Brotherhood + Revelations.

It took place all over fucking Italy.

I expected a Vita/Mini-game in a different city than the main one. And lots more fun offshoots and other cities in the main game itself.

I'm not worried about it being just one city.

Of course, yes, St. Petersburg is universally better.

I hope Ubisoft uses their resources to get good voice actors. Nothing I hate more than bad fake accents.

The opening to The Avengers was fucking TERRIBLE Russian.
