View Full Version : Suggestion Ideas for a new gameworld setting...

01-08-2018, 12:28 PM

I'm sure there is a thread where this is already being discussed, so please forgive my newness :)

I was hoping to have a discussion and just throw some ideas out as to where the next world/time setting for AC should go after the events/timeline of Origins.
I had always thought that ancient Minoan or Pheonecian civilization would be fun. Also a favorite fit for me with this series would have been Greece's Golden Age... Possibly a storyline involving Alexander the Great. But if classic Egypt is the start (IE Alexandria, Rome, Cleopatra etc) What would be a great next point to jump in?

Maybe given the general geography of the game's mainline story Charles Martel vs the Muslim expansion into Spain/France? Maybe Charlemaign's reign of unification and enlightenment? What about Boudicea from ancient england and her struggles against Rome? Or heck even after something like those go to the Norman/Saxon conflict in 1066 as a direct precursor to AC1?

Just some random thoughts to throw out there to see what other ideas may be. :)
I've always loved the series, especially for its wonderfull historic backgrounds, and would love some feedback from the rest of the AC community.
Thanks for reading and replies in advance!

Early dark ages Europe or medieval Europe (France, Germany, Britain). I need settings I can relate to as a European.

Mycenian eastern europe / Aegean & Black sea During the homeric age (-1300)Notable Cities : Mycene, Knossos, Troy
Middle east during the rise and fall of Darius I (-550/-486) Notable cities : Babylon
Mauryan india during Ashoka's reign (-260)
2nd punic war / western mediterranean sea (-210)Notable cities : Carthago, Syracuse
Viking era scandinavia & denmark (800-1100)
Aztec empire "Apocalypto" Era (1500)
Thirthy year's war rhineland (1610-1648)
Maratha Empire in the 17th century (1674)
or during the third british-marathan war (1817)

In blue, the more sea-themed settings.

These are settings that would be rich in events and characters, and places we've never been to with memorable cities to visit.

I don't think we will see Rome and Paris again, so not listing Roman empire stuff or the very lively french history. I do hope they somehow remake the french revolution until the rise of Bonaparte someday, as a much grander setpiece with no bugs open world ala witcher 3 etc. One can dream...

"Medieval" China, Ming China, China during the Opium Wars or even as late as the Boxer Rebellion...It can be said I like China as a setting :p

Medieval Europe in the likes of the Baron's Wars or something. Unity's prologue is my favorite AC thing ever.

And my wet, yet impossible, dream of mesopotamia.
