Stop milking .... God!!

So they decide to make one AC in china and its garbage like that, such a wasted potential.

I don't understand why people keep saying Ubisoft is milking the AC franchise. Sure they have a lot of sequels, but each of them is very fun to play and unique in its own way, I think.

I'm not sure I will like the china DLC, but all the other extras I definitely will. I guess I'll be getting this and Shadow of Mordor's season passes.

My same thought, AC fans have been asking for an AC set in Japan and China for years and this 2.5D BS is what they have to show for an AC set in China.

Why not set it in the French Revolution's time period and wait to do a full retail AC set in China with new animations matching chinese martials arts?!

I agree with you. After her introduction in Assassin's Creed: Embers, Shao Jun was a shoe-in for her own game; but not like this! Come on, she invented the rope dart! A game set in China would have been a nice change.

AC in Japan... Man, imagine the possibilities... NINJAAAA!

I've wanted to see an Asian themed AC since the first game, but this is not what I had hoped for.

Fuck you Ubisoft you fuckin 2D trolls

Are you sure the China DLC is not made for mobile devices?

100% dick move by the suits up in management. I guess with this they tick off two things hanging on their shoulders: 1. Appease the feminists with a female protagonist 2. Make an 'Asian' creed game.

This game is designed to tank, make no mistake, it's purely a marketing move. Wouldn't be surprised if it ends up on iOS etc seeing as that's the dumping ground for cross-marketing games.

Exactly. They know people have been asking for a Chinese or Japanese Creed game for years. But they seem to have no interest in radically changing the gameplay of the core series to accommodate martial arts or the vastly different architecture of China and Japan.

I can only hope that this is an experiment to gauge people's interest in the character and setting, and that a full fledged game will follow. Because TBH I've been bored of the series since Brotherhood. This would get me excited for AC again.

They only include playable girls in their low budget spin offs, interesting

AC Chronicles China looks fun! It sort of reminds me of Mark of the Ninja, which was great.

Would have been cool if we could have got a Shao Jun game on console, but I wouldn't be surprised if they're doing this because they want to cover a different time period in China rather than Shao Jun's time period.

    GriftGFX It's always produced really good visuals (still does), but I'm not sure if it was ever efficient. Unreal has always seemed more well rounded. (22 minutes ago)

    GriftGFX @asdfg: Id too. But was Cryengine ever actually good? (24 minutes ago)

    droezelke @asdfg: But it ran like shit when Crysis 3 was released. That was with the latest version at that time. (26 minutes ago)

    MrWhite @KORNdog: Yeah, source material would be to blame for that, but I'm sure if DICE were allowed creative licence, they could invent new stuff to make it work. (1 Hour ago)

    asdfg Hence why it runs like shit these days. (1 Hour ago)

    asdfg @droezelke: someone on Reddit wrote that alot of the key people working on cryengine had gone to the star citizen dev. Don't know how much truth is in that statement though. (1 Hour ago)

    KORNdog @MrWhite: that would be quite cool as a themed map pack or something for a future based BF game. but not sure it would have enough variety for a full game. (1 Hour ago)
