View Full Version : Assassinating Multiplayer Characters in Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag?

Since it has only been done twice within the AC series, I thought it was kind of disappointing that there were no such missions in Assassin's Creed III, but with Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag coming out in October, I was wondering if Edward would have any assassination missions to seek out and assassinate some multiplayer characters that contribute to the story and actually play a better role like in Assassin's Creed: Revelations. Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood was the first game they implemented this, but it wasn't entirely fun, because they always had some sort of constraint and would end too quickly, unlike Assassin's Creed: Revelations where it was Den missions. In overall, I want this to return, but I want it to be more challenging.... What do you guys think? Do you want this to return?

Well, Adewale is a MP character, so is Anne Bonne (correct spelling?) So I guess other characters will be in SP too.

Neither Adewale nor Anne Bonny are multiplayer characters.

Pretty sure they are. Adewale is The Mercenary

and Bonny is Lady Black.

Nope. I already had this debate on the AC wiki....those definitely aren't the same characters. Just take a second to look at them side by side and you'll see they're very clearly different people.

Dude, it's been confirmed on The Watch...

Adewale is The Mercenary and Anne Bonny is The Lady Black. The thing is, this means that Abstergo is heavily modifying their looks for multiplayer.

Anyway, the majority of AC3 MP characters are Assassins, and some of the Black Flag MP characters are present in the story.

Proof?

That makes no sense...why would they do that? Why would they bother modifying them? They're avatars anyway, so why wouldn't they just get a different looking person?

I thought Erudito revealed that the multiplayer characters were actually Templars, despite Abstergo disguising them as Assassins.

Uh, Abstergo didn't talk about the Assassins or the Templars in AC3 MP, and Erudito revealed which ones were Assassins and Templars. Most of them were actually Assassins.

They're modifying them anyway to give more customization options to the players, so why not modify them in general? I actually was wrong when I said The Watch confirmed it, I was thinking of something else, but Darby did say that there were various (if not most) MP characters in the singleplayer, and that some were allies (he said this in a tweet that also said that Jill Murray wrote their back-stories for the MP), and I remember different news articles reporting that The Mercenary was Adewale and that Anne Bonny was The Lady Black. That info had to come from somewhere, and as you said, the characters don't look all that much alike from SP to MP unless you look past the change of hair color/eyepatch/scars.

Also, I'm fairly sure that "The Vengeful Daughter Pack" from uPlay, which is a costume for The Lady Black, is also Anne Bonny's pirate outfit in SP.

I could've sworn I saw an Erudito hack where "Assassin" was crossed out and "Templar" was written in red text. I don't feel like booting up the game now, so I'll just let this go.

They're wrong. I know there was some confusion in one interview with Ash, where someone asked about the multiplayer characters being in the singleplayer. Ash said you would interact with them in certain ways, but not like previous games. He then went on to talk about the Adewale side-missions, and that's what caused the confusion. This is the interview. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w8nXLl80VnU

That doesn't mean anything. The Huntsman had a Ratonhnhake:ton outfit in AC3.

Honestly, these characters look nothing alike. Adewale and the Mercenary are both muscular, black, and bald, but that's it Adewale has scars, is darker (not something that has been customized before), and just has a completely different facial structure. The Lady Black and Bonny are both white women...that's it. Also, Adewale is not a mercenary...it makes no sense to have him look completely different, dress different, and have a different job, but still for some reason make them the same character.

I really have no clue. I'm just laughing to it, because everyone's saying that her name is Bonny. Which reminds me of Family Guy...

It does, because the MP is an entertainment product (well since AC3). So makes sense they'd want to spice up and sexualize the characters.

How about 1 month of mlp sig for Adewale/Mercenary, and one month of mlp avatar for Bonny/Lady Black, and if you're right on both, it's 2 months of each.

BACK ON TOPIC

I liked assassinating the MP characters in ACB, but primarily because the main story had terrible assassinations. Juan was the only good one, and there were only three others period. AC4 has 13 sequences, and at least 10 of those will probably have a target at the end, so I'm hoping the main path will be ripe with assassinations so we won't need the MP characters for assassination gameplay.

The more the merrier though, I love me some assassinations.

I think the reason we never saw any of the MP personas meet Connor's or Haytham's blades in AC3 is because their design was just too damn stylized for the more realistic artistic direction of the single player.

If there are any in AC4, they shouldn't be included as part of the story - relegate them to side missions. Shahkulu and Vali in ACR were already pushing it

Not to mention the Crusader dude Altair killed.

shakulu is & looks the most badass

post-script; it's too late, but i want kidd's sawtooth sword and vlad's impaler sword in BF
(pretty sure these were unlocked after i got the implaer sword, the neck stab and twist as well as the vertical slice through moves are ruthless)

You're wrong. You know why everyone's got it stuck in their head that Anne Bonny is Lady Black? Because of this guy (http://www.youtube.com/user/alex68acmp?feature=watch). He had the gall to make up false information (no other website has confirmed Anne Bonny and Lady Black are the same person) and it spread around on the internet :/

If you'd take a look at either character, you'd see they were different, especially Anne Bonny and Lady Black; I can sort of understand Adewale and the Mercenary because of a superficial similar appearance. However, the Mercenary lacks Adewale's signature scars on his cheeks and chin. Anne Bonny and Lady Black look nothing alike; Anne is a redhead with flowers in her hair, Lady Black is a short-haired brunette: she looks more similar to her predecessors the Corsair and the Red Coat than Anne. And Anne's regular outfit (http://images.wikia.com/assassinscreed/images/8/8b/Anne_Bonny_concept.jpg) in no way resembles Lady Black's "Vengeful Daughter" (http://static2.cdn.ubi.com/gamesites/uplay/v20/news/bd4f3397cc58c9622da04ae510a1fcb7.jpg) pack.

And now, to stay on topic; YES, they need to bring the multiplayer characters back into singleplayer. I really missed this in Assassin's Creed III. Even just as minor assassination targets like in Brotherhood, at least it fleshes them out a little. Just limiting them to a short database entry seems such a waste for such vibrant characters.
