View Full Version : Do you think Edward...?

I'm unsure if a thread like this was made before, if it has, please take it down.

Now, it's not secret than Connor as a character was received with mixed feelings. One side loved him and his struggle, while the other side didn't feel like he was relatable enough and straight up didn't like him in some cases. It's pretty much 100% fact that Ubisoft won't do another major game involving Connor simply because of 18th century fatigue, upon rebuke from fans who don't want to see Connor again. Perhaps a Vita spinoff, or a book detailing the rest of his life, but definitely not a game.

It's got me thinking, however, about Edward and how he'll be as a character. Ashraf and Darby have already said over and over again that Edward will have a struggle between selfishness and his duty as an Assassin. Personally, I relish in seeing this firsthand. It seems like a very interesting plot mechanic, if not a bit cliché. I hope Edward evolves into his own character as uniquely as Altair, Ezio, and Connor did with theirs.

I'm alarmed, however, how the developers decided to move back to a character similar to Ezio in some aspects. I know, I know, "That's like saying Altair and Connor are the same!", but I don't mean it like that. Edward seems like a womanizer, a trait Ezio possessed, and he has the charisma that both Altair and Connor lacked. I'm unsure if Ubisoft has done this because they realize that a majority of fans like characters like this, which makes me doubt the gaming community as a whole in some cases. It's an ever-raging battle. Jason from Far Cry 3 was called a ******bag and [censored] by a lot of players simply because he was white and cried a lot during the beginning of the game. Jason was the modern century counterpart to Ezio and Connor, in retrospect. He's attractive, has a sort of charm, and is a bit full of himself. The gaming community loves, and more often hates characters like these taking up their main character space, (I believe in the Hate-Jason case, it was the plot and location more than the character) and then when stoic, less well-rounded people to play as come about, the community usually hates more than love. I think this may be dignified in a split between casuals and more dedicated gamers, where casuals seem to be okay with either stock to play as, while the gamer gamers like a more... perfect character

All in all, I don't want Ubisoft to think that we as a community are too dumb to emphasize with more serious characters and just revert back to the fail-safe ladies man archetypes. So do you think Edward will be another carbon-copy of Ezio?
I said characters a lot.

I still think Edward will be the worst of Connor and the best of Ezio combined, with his own twist on it.

AC4 development probably started way before AC3 released. So you can't move back from a no-well-received character and make a typecast character in AC4 unless you have invented a time machine or have found a crystal ball that predicts the future.

Whether Connor was well-liked enough or not, we'll see in AC5, not AC4.

Either way, you can already see plenty of differences between Ezio and Edward. Ezio was a nobleman who'd ask ladies before getting on with them, Edward is a dirty scumbag who'd just grab the ladies and be off with it whether they like it or not. Edward is motivated by selfish goals and is not above using violence and threats to get what he wants. Ezio wasn't like that. Oh, and lets not forget, Ezio was a carefree teenager when we first saw him. Edward already has a daughter to take care of when the game starts.I think its rather tunnel-visioned to say Edwad is Ezio 2.0 based on just one similarity between them. By that logic Connor was Altair 2.0

they knew the reaction to Connor was going to be mixed, yet they still used him as a character..

Also, what we've seen of Edward shows him being the cold-shoulder kind of guy when he's not with his crew or being a cold stone killer to his enemies. Definitely not like Ezio.

He's been described as a brash, rebel Assassin who is young, cocky, and fearsome.

Altiar:
Brash at first to enemies and allies
Rebel to the Creed at first
Young and Cocky at first

Ezio:
Brash to his enemies early on.
Young and Cocky at first

Connor:
Brash to his enemies and unknown, possible, allies
Rebel to the British, to Achilles at times
Young and Cocky

All Assassins: Fearsome

Gee, Edward sure sounds like most of the Assassins we know.

To the OP I hope you realize that your post is your opinion not everyone will agree with you, I respectfully disagree. I could relate to Connor's struggle, Connor was out of all the Assassin's he was the realist his personality especially.

Edward should be well received amongst with the fans.

I hope you will stick around for a year more, I wanna see your reaction when your "100% fact" fails and we get a Connor game next year. :D

Also lol @ 18th century fatigue. There has been like.. one 18th century AC before this? And that was in different location, BF is at a different place, if another game gets made I'm sure it will be at a completely different location altogether. I got more Italy-fatigued playing ACB tbh. That **** was not just at the same time, but also at the same place!

You really think after three games there wont be fatigue? I think we should have a big DLC, similar size to TOKW but not split into three for AC IV, then we go somewhere else completely.

Then in 2015/16 when it's a fully next gen game we shall see Assassins Creed VI, it will be set in Ancient Greece, Ancient Rome and somewhere else maybe Persia, probably not though because of Prince of Persia so maybe just Rome, Athens and Sparta. It will win every GOTY award possible even Indie GOTY and the creative director will be Yves and we will love him again like we did, when um.. I'm not sure when but when we did!!!

Edward will probably be my favourite Assassin next to Altair.

1. Firstly I love the VA for Edward.
2. The conflict between him going Templar or Assassin makes for interesting story.
3. His character development from selfish pirate, to Assassin, to family man.

If anything, I am looking forward to his Character development. It seems like it could get really deep and if done right, can be perfect.

Until we get official confirmation there won't be another Connor game I don't think we can say it's 100% ruled out. I hope it's not at least.

As for Edward, my initial reaction to him was that of extreme dislike. Like many others I thought he'd be Ezio 2.0. But there were later reassurances that he actually grows as a character so I think I will like him. I do now at least. I have even pre-ordered two expensive special editions and plan to spend even more on Edward merchandise. (Hope they don't make me regret it. lol)

(As a side note about those "dudebros"already mentioned: I hope the game industry starts expanding like many other entertainment industries have done already and stop catering to them as a first choice of audience. I'm going to play Far Cry 3 soon and I don't get why this Jason character got hate from them just because he showed some emotion *le gasp*. I personally think I'm gonna like him. As I said, time to start expanding, preferably away from those "dudebros". I think they're preventing the game industry from evolving).

I'd honestly like to see the period when the pirates start to being hunted down, thereby ending the age of piracy. Imagine Edward being the only one standing alive. One of the few pirates that was spared with everyone he ever knew murdered. I honestly thought AC3' main story line was too bleak and with Edward living through the time when pirates were hunted, I'm starting to worry that this would be a melancholic game as well, but at the same time, I'm glad that the game is still going to have a mature approach.

Three games where? Are you counting Liberation? It isn't out yet. If you are getting fatigued, don't play it, simple.[/QUOTE]

And agreed with pacman and megas_doux. Eddy has toe potential to be the best Assassin yet with a really great character development arc.

While we're at it guys, from what we've seen, the pirates seem to be a bit eccentric and of course immoral, so I don't see how they would be the ones constructively countering the Templar side of the argument in AC4. It just seems like the moral ambiguity in the game is at danger of being one sided but this time with the Templars since the pirates pretty much don't care about the philosophy of matters.

That, they did, didn't they? I can't stress enough how much I disliked my first introduction to Edward. I almost gave up on the series.

Fortunately they stopped promoting him as such after all the adverse reactions of him being Ezio 2.0.

I suspect Eddie will have to leave his pirate life behind to show his true alleigiances lie with the Assassin's. That seems plausible but a huge twist wouldn't suprise me either.

Sounds like PoTC Pirates, anyway.

They are anarchist that are trying to make a independent community/government/land/country e.c.t Nassu is the pirate republic/haven/community e.c.t where they accepted anyone and did fight for theire own freedom while also pirating the money hey did not gett but it failed becouse they used most of the money and rum, Basecly a failed revolution.
Totally correct becouse Blackbeard did not scare enemys so he did not have to kill them and they surrenderd before the fight = Totally a PoTC pirate.

As a note Templars usually is on the side(for their on goals) with most power and controll like British, Spanish & French government.

Haha, really? they are going to sell whether self-proclaimed hard core AC fans are shook that edward seems too much like ezio x 20.0

Even if you didn't like the personality of edward, you are buying this game; you are on the forums. don't tell me you'd rather watch the youtube walkthrough than spend just 60$ on an immersive, pirate experience.

fact: Threesomes sell games.

I am only buying it and I'm on these forums because I was later reassured that he matures as a character. Trust me I wouldn't be here and would never pre-order it (or even buy it) if I didn't have this reassurance.

WOT? I personally don't buy games to see threesomes. That's so... cheap... Maybe h**** teens do.
Also, how desperate... Example: every time I see an overly-promoted sex scene in a film trailer I automatically assume the film is crap. I have never been proven wrong so far.

Edward won't be an Ezio copy and I'm certain that he will be his own character. :) As for him being like Ezio, I'm sure Edward will flirt and even be promiscuous. However, the fact that he does marry and have children, makes me believe that ACIV will also focus on Edward becoming a better man. :D

Then I feel he will begin as a man who has been let down by the world he lives in, resulting in him turning to piracy. From his time as a pirate, I believe we will see him struggle to choose between the Assassins and the Templars, as Darby has suggested, as well as his own selfish goals. However, I'm almost certain we will see Edward's transition into a mature man who settles down with a family and swears allegiance to the Creed. :D

No, I haven't read Forsaken because I'm waiting for ACIV!! ;)

Overall, I'm expecting a lot more depth to Edward's character. :)

It was two second shot. Maybe Ubi should hire somebody to measure how much nakedness is on screen and sound a big alarm when it's not exactly 50:50 between genders. By the same logic all those scenes in movies where couples are lying in bed and the sheets only go up to the guy's waist while they're up to the girl's neck covering her boobs are sexist.

It could be 2 milliseconds or less. It still had a big effect, if internet memes were created. They made that trailer feel like a boys-club only. We got 100:00.

I would be worried if you guys were all talking about shirtless Connor but you're right. We'll keep it the tumblr thread (even though boobs different to er... moobs). :p

(I have no problem with fanboying, btw, feel free to drool over Aveline or any other female character).

That's not the point, it's just not needed. The guys don't fanboy for a reason, that reason is most likely because there is no point and it will make them look weird.

And as for the Tumblr thread, that is another issue. It seems to be a shirtless Connor or gay AC character portrayal Haven.

They do fanboy when they see, say, Jessica Nigri as Edward. ;) But anyway, you're right.

Oh but that's Tumblr in a nutshell. lol (I try to post the most tame pictures I can find though. I have stopped posting yaoi ones I think. lol)

Women's chests are more sexualized in general.

Hypocritical no!

Blame Mother Nature for that.

Haven't seen much of that tbh.

Anyone in their right mind knows that Jessica Nigri is a glorified cosplay sex icon. I find it terrible. She didn't need to get a boob job. Her costumes are great but her boobs ruin it. I am 100% straight, but I hate oversexualisation of women, and she did it to herself.

Glad you agree. I suppose she found a great way to make more money... (I've read comments in various forums and so many people agree that she would never be popular in other types of modelling).

Eh, I'm not so much slating what she does for a living, more the boob thing.

Yeah, this thread derailed. Mods, if you can, close it.

Anyway, thanks to everyone who shared what they shared. We'll have to wait until the game releases to truly get closure on the questions. I respect all of your opinions and I look forward to playing AC4 this autumn.

I just realized i started a men vs women discussion, was never my intention, i humbly apologize.

Back to the topic, what if at the end of the game, Edward takes a mask, Mission Impossible style, and turns out he was Ezio all along.
