View Full Version : Assassinís Creed (Byzantine Empire) ERE

We all know that in the beginning of Assassinís Creed Unity, players see a screen that they have to choose a level. They are ALL twelve locked except one, ďThe Tragedy of Jacques MolayĒ.
Now we have played the eight of them: Triumph of the Borgias is Assassinís Creed Brotherhood, The Lone Eagle is early Assassinís Creed III, Murder in the Levant is Assassinís Creed and etc. But there are 3 that remain unknownÖ It is the Bladed Cross, Jazz Age Junkies and Hell in Hibernia.
I believe that Hell in Hibernia is the upcoming game that we will play in October 2015, Assassinís Creed Syndicate, as Great Britain is just next of Ireland and the manís suit of the picture looks like an alternative suit of Jacob Frye (and he could be Irish).
The Bladed Cross is said to be set during the Byzantine millennium and the Jazz Age Junkies in the 1920 or sometime in early 20th century. (http://assassinscreed.wikia.com/wiki/Byzantine_Assassin, http://assassinscreed.wikia.com/wiki/American_Assassin).http://i.imgur.com/8qijex9.png
Now about an Assassinís Creed set in the Hellenized version of Roman Empire, the Eastern Roman Empire, known as well as Byzantine Empire, there are two reasons I believe that it will come soon, hope in 2017 or 2018. Firstly is the reason said above, that this Helix level is set to be in this time. Also there was an article in early 2015 about reusing maps that Ubisoft has already created just with some changes, like New York City in Assassinís Creed III and Assassinís Creed Rogue. So they will probably reuse the map of the Constantinople during 1500s and set it in another century. (http://www.cinemablend.com/games/Assassin-Creed-Sequels-Focus-Present-Day-Storylines-70366.html). Also in the Assassin's Creed Unity Database we learn about a Byzantine Sage that lived during the 6th century.
Also with such a setting they could bring back old features of the previous games and mix them with new ones. For example bringing back missions like Assassin Tombs from Assassinís Creed II and the Masyaf mission quests in Assassinís Creed Revelations in ancient Greek temples and Minoan palaces, hidden underground in medieval Greece and Asia Minor. Also they could bring back naval missions and Naval Battles in the Mediterranean Sea against Arabs (if it sets in 6-9th centuries). The conflicts would not involve gunpowder technology, but Greek fire and other tactics used back then.
Moreover, such a setting would bring back the magnificence of old games like Assassinís Creed II, Assassinís Creed Brotherhood and Assassinís Creed Revelations by showing the culture of the time. (In the games referred you also learned new stuff that you probably never did).
Also could add Italian locations of the time like Rome, Ravenna, Romagna, Venice and Naples that where still spread kingdoms against each other and the empire.
In conclusion, there is probably an Assassinís Creed game set in Byzantine Empire that will really look like the first games (especially like Assassinís Creed) and that will give the games back the story and setting quality it used to have.

We have had some byzantine encounter with Ezio but I liked that. I hated the timed levers in tombs and never want that back ever :( but rome and the mediterranean is always a good setting.
Whether those are links to a new game or just hinting at ACR, ACB and AC2 well it could be either.

But I would like to return to that part of Europe and I don't mind whether we have a new protagonist in a different or same time or even if we had a game where we could revisit previous assassins and play missions as each of them in their time.
