ASSASSIN'S CREED

  -  

Assassin’s Creed Unity has become synonymous with wasted potential. While there was so much khổng lồ love about the eighth major installment of the acclaimed Ubisoft series, it was infamously hampered by game-breaking bugs and glitches that rendered things near-unplayable when it debuted in 2014. It was a reputation from which the game could never quite recover, a crying shame considering the fact that, when working properly, Unity is a hugely enjoyable experience.

Some series’ high points can be found within the mythology of the French Revolution. Many consider Unity to lớn be the unsurpassed apex of Assassin’s Creed’s parkour mechanics, while the atmosphere and ambiance of 18th century Paris create a setting that is as brutal as it is beautiful. Unity also hinted at some expert story craft, that finds its greatest effect in the game’s exceptional prologue: The Tragedy of Jacques de Molay.

Before getting involved with the adventures of Arno the Assassin và his quest to clear his name và end the Templar influence in France, they are treated to perhaps the best opening of any Assassin’s Creed game ever. Players are plunged into the kích hoạt as an advisor khổng lồ Templar Grandmaster Jacques de Molay, who is charged with protecting the Temple’s Sword of Eden và the Order’s central Codex. Phối in early 14th century Paris as the Templar Order is seemingly coming to lớn an end, it is a welcome return lớn such an evocative period in history not seen in the series since the flashbacks to Altair in Assassin’s Creed: Revelations.

AC Unity Prologue Jacques và Advisor

The advisor ultimately fails after being killed by an assassin, while Jacques is later burned at the stake for heresy on the orders of King Philip IV of France. The historical reasons for this are fascinating: Philip was concerned about the growth in power and wealth of the Templar Order and sought to re-centralize nguồn by essentially dissolving the Templars & bringing control back khổng lồ the Crown. The blending of real events & historical fantasy is something Ubisoft’s mammoth franchise has excelled at, and a chance to see the role the Assassins play in the downfall of Jacques và the Templars leading up to lớn his arrest would be an engrossing narrative.

This era is one long-time fans want the series khổng lồ revisit. A trò chơi that incorporated the story of the Knights Templar from their perspective — perhaps from the kết thúc of the Crusades leading up khổng lồ the Order’s ultimate dissolution — would provide a new outlook on the first game’s story. The Medieval period has been vastly underutilized by Ubisoft, with only the original and 202s’s Valhalla centering exclusively on the Middle Ages. A new game spanning the Holy Land to lớn Europe wouldn’t be impossible and may be well-suited khổng lồ the upcoming Assassin’s Creed: Infinity’s structure.

It also operates as a hugely significant moment in the Assassin’s Creed timeline. With the Templar Order seemingly destroyed on the orders of King Philip IV, this signifies the moment it is driven underground lớn become, much lượt thích the Assassins themselves, a clandestine brotherhood working from the shadows. If anything, this would be the first chance lớn properly play as a Templar since Assassin’s Creed: Rogue put players in the shoes of Shay Cormac. Another chance khổng lồ see things from the other side of the fence would surely be a welcome change.

Ultimately, it would be another chance for Assassin’s Creed to show some of the maturity it has often hinted at but shied away from. In acknowledging the Templar Order may be more than just a villainous cult always at odds with the ever-virtuous Assassins, Ubisoft has the chance khổng lồ deliver a game with real narrative texture and weight. Desmond và the other 21st century Assassins hint that their own order isn’t without fault, while Rogue gave Shay a justifiable reason to be repulsed by the actions of his own community. Telling the other side of the story is, after all, vital lớn our understanding of history and of the series’ central Templar/Assassin conflict.

The first Assassin’s Creed isn’t the series pinnacle, surpassed by more enjoyable titles like Black Flag & well-rounded adventures like Assassin’s Creed II. What the first game did give players, however, was one of the game’s most immersive & fascinating settings, which established the chip core tension of the series’ entire grand narrative. While subsequent installments have lost focus on this central dichotomy of Assassins vs. Templars, or else unconvincingly shoe-horned it in elsewhere, an expansion of Unity’s prologue would be a chance to lớn delve back into a fascinating period of history with a brand-new point of view.
