Assassin’s Creed 5: Comet details disappointment?

By Matt Tran - Mar 30, 2014

The latest Assassin’s Creed: 5 Comet rumors have recently suggested that the theme will be Templar sailing in the Atlantic Ocean. We already know that the rumors of AC5 Unity being set in the French revolution have been confirmed, but have these leaked Comet details disappointed fans?

The first thing to look at is what player expectation is for Assassin’s Creed 5, it does look likely that Unity will dedicate itself to next gen and Comet to current gen platforms. The long rumored locations from AC5 was Feudal Japan and Ancient Egypt, which at the time seemed very popular environments with players.

Kotaku first reported the Assassin’s Creed 5: Unity details a few days before the news was officially confirmed by Ubisoft. It is likely their follow up Comet report is also accurate meaning that Xbox 360 and PS3 players will be sailing the Atlantic in late 2014. It could be argued that Comet may be too similar to AC4 Black Flag which focused on piracy, repeat content is never going to be good no matter what the game.

The initial reaction to Unity being set during the French revolution has been generally positive so far, until Comet is officially revealed we are unable to know for sure what the majority of fans think. Will the same nautical theme put you off buying Comet due to it being too much like Black Flag, or do you want to sail the Atlantic to destinations like 1758 New York?

    I think unity will be awesome, not to sure about comet but black flag was awesome easily 10x better than ac3. So another sailing themed game is welcome.

    we ant connor kenway back in AC5 either comet or unity
    we want him back!!!

    I think we’re going to 1758 the time when Halley’s Comet passed the earth. It would make sense they named it “AC: Comet”. I think this Comet will play a major rol in the game and I think it will be a sequel on the Kenway story.

    Do London. Follow Reginald Birch and his manipulation of Edward and abduction of Haythem. That would be a story worth seeing!

    Its all well and good talking about new york again blah blah blah the main thing about ac is the story of the assassins vs the templars and the more you love the story the more you will love the game no matter where its set and what they add or take away. Me personally I could play assassins creed for another 20 years with the same machanics as ac1 and ill be fine because at the en d of the day the game is about the assassins vs the templars with the deeper story of the first civilazation. So ill be fine if I have to run climb kill and hide for another 5 assassin creed games.

    I wish they would switch, unity for 360/ps3 and comet for ps4/xbox one

  • James Evans

    Sailing was good in AC3 and much better in AC4 but I really do not want to do it again. I want something new and please for the love of Ezio, PLEASE don’t have the game revisit New York. That place was very dull. Can we please just have a new location altogether, no more America.
    *Sigh* I wish I could play Unity when it comes out.

  • Damon rashid

    Yes we have already done this why are we doing it again. i hope it is not true.

    Yea I would much rather play Comet on the Xbox One. It honestly doesn’t make any sense to me for Ubisoft to release Comet on the last gen consoles only. I mean Comet is a direct sequel to Black Flag so it should be coming out for Xbox One & Ps4. Unity can wait another year. I loved Black Flag and after I finished the game, I was hoping Ubisoft would make a sequel to it for the next gen consoles.

  • reded

    Tokyo and please don’t do new York again its not going to make us happy

  • Guest

    Really? New York? Again?? Been there done that AC3. If it’s set in New York, comet will be the only assassins creed game I will not buy. Hopefully it’s not. I’m tired of the Americas and the English. If I see another red coat again I will have a cow.

    i think unity will be stupid. The only reason why i bought ac4 was because of pirates and ships wich will not be in ac unity. It will be in ac comet but that will only be for 360 and ps3, and i only have a ps4 so i wont be able to play comet. I really hope that they will put ac comet on next gen because ac unity seems stupid and boring like the rest of ac games. the only thing you can do in ac without naval combat is run around and kill people wich is really boring.
