    Oooh... looks good! The king looks like Joaquin Phoenix (and sounds a bit like him too?) edit: guess not, some actor I've never heard of :p

    Although I still need to finish the French one...
    ...then start the English one
    ...and Egyptian one
    ...and Greek one

    Would be great if they could get permission to put Kirk Douglas, Tony Curtis and Ernest Borgnine into it.

    RAGNAR!!!

    Sounds about right :(

    Got Cyberpunk to get in the way as well, so maybe make it 2026...

    Honestly mate, Origins and Odyssey are bloody massive, you really have a handful here:p I think it's safe to say you're looking at 300+h if you want to complete most of the stuff.

    Well, at least Unity and Syndicate are more manageable and both are pretty decent.

    For some reason I could never get in to Odyssey. But this one looks interesting.

    Though won't this be at least twice in the Assassins Creed series, that the Brits are the bad guys? :rolleyes:

    They're saying Alfred will be a more nuanced character and won't be just a villain. But yeah, talk is cheap.

    Makes sense though, we've been the bad guys quite a bit throughout history :D

    What makes me laugh in that video is some of comments about it being a "historically accurate" game. None of the AC games have been "historically accurate", hell even the Civilization series, which is pointedly exactly about History, isnt "historically accurate". Theres a fundamental difference between something which is set in history and which is accurately about history. The AC series has always been just set in history.

    Little extra pieces of info are dribbling out every day now, for example there will not be "levels" anymore, so the level system from Origins and Odyssey etc has changed, one of the additional pieces of info to come out is that there wont really be any naval battles. The longships will be used almost exclusively for travelling. Sort of makes sense really I guess as the Vikings werent often involved in naval combat, indeed virtually every time they encountered the Anglo Saxons in naval combat they simply tried to flee rather than fight and when they did fight , they got their asses handed to them in naval combat. Its a bit of a shame though as I was hoping to see the Kraken involved in some way.

    It's just horrible.

    Absolutely pointless, really drags you out of the game, and I don't believe anyone likes it.

    Just drop it, no one's interested in it.

    I assume modern day nonsense will be kept to a minimum, they've been trimming that with each subsequent release, fortunately.

    I'm fairly interested so far. We got male-female character choice again which is nice. I only hope that won't be just an avatar choice like in Odyssey but an actual gameplay difference like different skills available, some exclusive sidequests, different main story bits and dialogue options etc.

    The hidden blade is back as it should, the combat sounds promising with weight behind each hit and dismemberment, Odyssey felt too light here.

    Dark Ages England has me intrigued, the settings in these games rarely disappoint and are actually the main reason I play them, though I was hoping for some more Norway. By the looks of it, it'll be fairly limited.

    Less naval combat doesn't bother me, though I was secretly hoping for some RELEASE THE KRAKEN:p

    I hope it's really the team behind Origins on this and they'll craft a great map without too much copy paste or bloat. If so, I'll totally get it.
