    They were not very smooth on Wii U at all.

    Remember when Ubisoft said they were going to start staggering AC releases and not do it every year? This new one is coming out not even a year after the last one.

    Ubisoft originally said they were doing yearly ACs they later mentioned they had added a 3rd Ubisoft studio to increase development time
    later on they stated they were taking a year off to innovate, the resulting product being AC Origins
    Both those are still true and thus they are back to yearly ACs

    this is not surprising

    I'm stoked, outside of Sony E3 was pretty weak on open world games especially single player ones

    Origins was not meant to be the first in the chronology for all of time all it was was the origin of the brotherhood.
    Personally I think this is a cool idea, and allows them to explore time periods in these nice clockwork universes they created but in the case of anything actually ancient you're not bound by the creed and it's rules which could open up narrative possibilities that are different.

    If it makes you feel any better it ties in with the plot line
    Theyre delving deeper in into the chick from origins ancestral memories looking for relics of Eden, in this case the word I've heard its the spear of the Leonidas

    I imagine it's going to be a lot of 300/Spartacus type references in the engine of origins

    I'm fine with that

    Not even me, as I only play Japanese games, but my wife is like AC devout and says she won't play one with a woman lead.

    Thanks, it makes way more sense like that, because until now it was always about the Assassin's vs. Templars/Illuminati/whatever group, so I thought that chronologically speaking there would be no AC befire antic Egypt.
