Alright, enough yapping.. Let's go in with it. It may be a crazy idea but that's what my blog is for.. To share my crazy ideas..
Ok, you probably know by now that AC Unity is going to feature co-op multiplayer right? Ok great! Now you also saw the McFarlane Toys' Assassin's Creed Series 3 figures right? What about the earlier sneak of Series 2 and Series 3 at ToyFair 2014?
You keeping up with me? That's 3 articles that you should have checked out, if you haven't.. Now, what if the timing of the figures is more than just a marketing strategy? All these McFarlane figures are going to come with a DLC code to unlock some content for, presumably, AC Unity. Wait for it...
Now.. what if the unlockable content are skins for AC Unity's multiplayer? Skins of each and every Assassin that we know from the various games?
Let's see the list and the figures that will be in the upcoming Series 2 and 3.
AC 1 - Altair..check
AC 2, Brotherhood, Revelations - Ezio..check
AC 3 - Connor.. check
AC Liberation - Aveline.. check
AC 4 - Edward Kenway.. check
AC 4 Freedom Cry - Adewale.. check
That's all the main Assassins from the games..
AC Unity's multiplayer will feature a campaign co-op mode. It's still unclear if we will be playing as Assassins or Templars or maybe even some other faction. But I have been rooting for multiplayer to feature the Assassins if you read this post. Sure, the campaign will feature characters suited for the campaign but there's nothing wrong in providing customizable skins for fans to play as their favourite Assassins, right?
Logically, these Assassins would never have fought together but for Fan Appreciation, why not? Imagine Connor and Edward Kenway fighting side-by-side or Adewale and Aveline.
The figures are slated for a August and October release so that's just before the usual annual Assassin's Creed release. Could be a good marketing strategy to entice people to get AC Unity early for the Multiplayer.
It's a far-fetched idea I know. As much as it's a dream, it's still a possibility. Either way, remember you first heard it here!
What do you think? Sounds possible? Crazy? Great idea? Nonsense? Let me know in the comments below!
