View Full Version : Idea for AC in modern times

04-11-2011, 08:05 PM
Sorry if this has been mentioned before, but I was playing brotherhood and this idea just popped in my head.
Obviously if we have an AC in the modern times it wouldn't make any sense for one of the most advanced companies in the world to arm their soldiers/guards with swords. Some if not all the guards should carry guns or other advanced weaponry, so what if a lot of the portions in the game were similar to the stealth sections of Batman Arkham Asylum? You would have to quietly go around stabbing guards, snapping necks, poisoning guards, etc. and if you were detected or a guard found a body they would go on alert and you'd have to wait it out or quickly escape. Now, if the entire game was like this it'd be no fun (for most people) so they could have maybe 25% to even 75% of the guards use advanced melee weapons like electrified swords that do much more damage, so dodging would be more important. In general, I think that they should rely much more on stealth which wasn't (IMHO) implemented right in previous iterations of the franchise, if you're spotted it shouldn't be a de-synch or game over, but it should make the level much more difficult to complete. Also, if you're detected and start getting shot at, much like in Batman: AA, you should only be able to survive a few bullets, not 5 clips like in a lot of FPS's today.
So, what do you think? Agree? Disagree? Again sorry if this has been mentioned before.

I agree. But it probably wouldn't happen. That would alienate a lot of players who prefer easy gameplay. That's the majority of AC fans. But maybe they could make this hardcore mode...

I'm thinking it'll be just like any other AC game. Just replace rooftop guards armed with arrows with rooftop guards armed with big guns.

Also the whole animus assassin training at abstergo is probably going to play a big part as well, so we'll be facing a lot of abstergo assassin's with knives (or other hand to hand weapons) and what not.
