  • Hello all! I'm at E3 as part of their Star Player program. Should anyone have any questions for Ashraf, Jean or anyone else I might run into, ask them here and I'll try to get them answered.

    • Hello Master Sima Yi,

      My question is probably more for Aymar than Ashraf, but I've always been more interested by the story than the gameplay of the AC franchise, so here it is...

      The game is presented as the origin story of the Brotherhood, but the existing lore tell us that there were Assassins before and during Cleopatra's reign (Darius, Iltani, Wei Yu, Brutus...). Is this a retcon, with those characters no longer canon, or does the game will adress this at some point ?

      Additional question: What about the giant snake shown in the trailer ? Is the franchise becoming less "realistic" and more mythological, or is there a plausible AC explanation that will be unveiled in the game (illusion, piece of Eden effect, frozen experiment of the Isu...) ?

        Loading editor
    • I got a few questions :3


      1. How does Origins take into consideration the previously established lore (Darius, Iltani, Amunet)?

      2. What made them do away with the parkour down mechanic?

      3. How is the relation between Bayek and Senu (the Eagle Vision) explained lore-wise? Can they tell us anything about the giant snake? :>

      4.Who are the writers on Origins?

      5. Who is the composer?

      6. How is the comics arc going to work out in relation to the upcoming games? Would it be necessary to have read them beforehand to be able to fully understand the modern day?

      7. How is the modern day in Origins related to the ones in the previous entries? Would it be necessary to have played the previous games in order to understand the modern day?

      8. How does the map in Origins scale with respect to the maps in previous entries in the series?


      I guess, this is it for now. Thanks! ;3

    • Be careful you guys aren't asking questions whose answers are essentially spoilers. :P Some of these things will be learned from playing game itself, I'm sure. That being said, I would like to hear some reassurance that previous lore about Assassins that predate Bayek won't be contradicted.

      Crookandcharlatan wrote: I'm not super optimistic that this'll get answered, but will there be any reference to Amunet?

      In the Gameinformer magazine, Ubisoft said they won't retcon that Amunet assassinated Cleopatra and would respect her lore. So, I have faith that she will be referenced in the game since Cleopatra would be a major character given that she is a Templar and the reigning monarch in the setting.

      I personally hope we would get to play as Amunet, perhaps during her assassination, especially since they said there's another playable character.

      The giant snake might be Apep, the demonic snake in the underworld who assailed Ra and his entourage every night when the sun (Ra) moves "beneath the Earth". Every night, he is defeated by Ra and Set, the God of Chaos (who in this myth suggests he later redeemed himself of his crimes against Osiris). Perhaps the giant snake is meant to serve as some realistic explanation of how the myth came to be, just like the Isu explain the myths of the gods. I don't think it's out-of-place for Assassin's Creed at all. It's just a giant snake. Maybe it is a remnant of Isu genetic engineering experiments; entirely plausible.

      The game is set during the rise of the Roman Empire with the Roman civil wars that ended the Republic. The trailers seem to show that Roman influence is intruding on Egypt, but it's not impossible that perhaps the scene with gladiatorial combat is set in Rome itself during a mission I think, just like how previous games had select missions set outside the main area. Why am I answering these with my speculative thoughts? xD

Can we get more information on what this is, that is, what specific familiar controls would be available through this feature.

      I feel like the AC community should accept at this point that they're not going to bring Jesper Kyd back. Also, Ezio's Family overuse in recent year has really worn out the track's appeal for me, personally.

      I'd say Ezio's Family is overrated, because it's considered to be better or more important than it really is. There were many other themes that deserved more attention: "Access the Animus", "Revelations Main Theme", etc.; but no.

      That's what happens when fans give to much credit to one simple song above the others; and Ubi, who read the forums and feedback, give them what they want misusing it.

      It was okay for Ezio's saga: Earth/Heart and Venice Rooftops. But now hear it in Origins, personally, it's just a pain in the butt and ears.

    • I don't really think "Ezio's Family" was overused. Classical Star Wars songs are repeated across every game with variations after all. However, it did feel out of place in its remix in Rogue, and moreover, I think the greater issue is whether it matches the setting. I think the track for each game should match the setting, and "Ezio's Family" would feel out of place for Egypt. It'd be wonderful for Ubisoft to compose original songs based on the musical culture of the setting they're dealing with, which I'm not sure if they already do or don't since so far they've mostly stuck around European settings. The shanties are actually kind of related to this even if they weren't original.

    • GAMINGMASTER210 wrote:

      I wouldn't say that at all, because the song was made for Ezio and his familiy. (Hehe, of course it was)

      But if you say so, please, explain to me how AC:Rogue and AC:Unity (titles that has nothing to do with Italy, Ezio or the "lovely" concept of family) are based on Ezio's Family?

      Respectfully, I'll tell you: They aren't. It's pure fanservice.

      There's a difference friend: The overused of the Starwars songs are acceptable because most of them aren't focus in a specific character, but in certain scenes and battle concepts. Of course there's some exceptions: "The Imperial March" (Darth Vader's theme), but this song is used only when Vader makes an appearance or when Sith soldiers are destroying his enemy and winning, if I'm not mistaken. That's okay, there're concepts that have in common.

      Ezio's Family was created as a "casual song". Jesper only made it as a reference of the renaissance and keep it in his files just in case. When Ubi confirmed the character of Ezio to him, he used it. (This info can be confirmed in the "Assassins Den" podcast). And if I'm not wrong, Ezio's Family is only heard four times in the whole series: Intro of AC2, intro of ACBr, credits of AC2 and credits of ACBr. (Variations like Venice Rooftops or Earth/Heart [the original one] don't count) And that's all. Concept of Family (father, mother, siblings): Check, Ezio: Check. That's why the use of it is so wrong in other titles. What does it have to do with Egypt? Or with a Syndicate of Crime? Or with the French Revolution? Or with the purge of the colonial assassins?

      Personally, I say it's overrated.

      Q1: I wager that it will return in future games, but I wouldn't say that the social stealth mechanic has been completely washed away in Origins. Only time will tell really. 

      Q2: I doubt it, this game is basically to the Assassin's Creed series, what Skyward Sword was to The Legend of Zelda series, it's chronologically first in the timeline. This means that we will see the foundation of the Assassin Brotherhood/Order. So in answer to your question, I do not think we will see such a mechanic return when Origins takes place so early in the timeline. The only thing for certain is that Bayek is the first to call himself an Assassin. 

      Q3: No, I am sure there are more features left to be discovered about Origins.

      ...Wait, you mean no more blending? That's a pretty core aspect of Assassin's Creed, even if I like them making radical changes, that's not a mechanic I would like to see utterly removed. I'm fine if it's modified such that, say, you can't blend with weapons equipped, but not entirely done away with.

I'm fine if it's modified such that, say, you can't blend with weapons equipped, but not entirely done away with.

      We have no idea when social stealth was integrated into the Assassin Brotherhood, for all we know, that would have been implemented later on. You can still hide, but I think they took away that aspect from a gameplay point of view, it doesn't seem like there will be crowds as in previous titles, so blending would be very difficult. Populations were spread out in Ancient Egypt, and likewise, other countries at the time. This sense of crowds didn't happen until the Renaissance, at least, when people became wealthier and could thus travel more often.

      I think it can be explained that Bayek, as a founder of the Brotherhood, might not have had training in social stealth especially since it probably wouldn't have been part of the regimen for Medjay who were warriors not assassins.
