Starting a new IP would give them the creative freedom to do what's best for the game they actually want to make, because they'd no longer be hamstrung by the obligation to shoehorn in certain things or having to bend over backwards explaining how new elements fit into the Assassin's Creed universe.

My impression is that Ubisoft is only making these games under the Assassin's Creed brand to make more money, and I think they should take a break from the AC franchise before they run it into the ground like Call of Duty.

I love it as it is. I don't think evolving should mean calling it something else. AC2 is one of my favourites, but I couldn't go back and play it now. It's a clunky mess that lasted all the way up to Syndicate. They couldn't have continued making games like that.

It sounds like Valhalla has found the best of both though. Regardless of the name, people can decided whether the game itself is something they want to play or not.

Valhalla isn’t any more assassiny than the previous two games. It’s a big open world again with lots of things to collect and do. I’ve been playing for 3 days and I’ve only done like 3 story missions

I heard it was less RPG-like in terms of areas of the map having different event levels though.

Hopefully I'll start it in the next few days.

There’s recommended power, which is pretty much level, for each area of the map. And the skill tree’s more like a spider web, but it’s a mixture of passive buffs and active skills, which is even more rpg like than Odyssey and Origins. I guess the loot system is less rpg like, there aren’t as many items as in the previous games and it’s more about upgrading the items you have than finding lots of new ones. I find the loot system in this game pretty boring.

Thanks for clarifying. I'm okay with sticking with weapons for awhile, I was constantly waiting for the new shiny thing in the last two games, even though the look was all that changed.

I think I'll be starting it later.

I'm conflicted, on one hand I think I should just let go and enjoy it, on the other I keep asking myself, is it wrong to want Assassin's Creed things in an Assassin's Creed game? Over the last decade and a dozen or so games, Ubisoft have shaped a specific identity and expectation for AC, these last few games have been a significant change in direction.

This is pretty much how i feel. I've learned to appreciate them for what htey are (and I think Origins qualifies since it's an origin story about the assassin order). I'm looking forward to Valhalla but you could easily have updated the old game's formula (which I love and still love) to make it more Assassins Creed like. I hope they change the forumla again. These open world games are fine but the story is all over the place and im kind of tired of 1100+ hour open world games that are just full of busy work.

I meant more that the armour sets and legendary weapons had more interesting perks. Even if some of them were useless.


Also, not liking the new AC games as much as the old ones is valid, many people feel that way, but I’m pretty sure they said they won’t go back to the old formula.

Plus they’re no longer annual releases, so they’re not forced to limit the scope of what they want to do with each one (for better or worse). Syndicate and Unity were the last ones to be just one city as a result of that, I think. So they could do it, they just need to realise that extra time doesn’t just have to be used to make a bigger game.
