Ubisoft has sent out a questionnaire probing Assassin's Creed 3 fans for their thoughts on the inevitable Assassin's Creed 4 (cheers, TGL). There's not much to glean from it, but one suggestion in particular makes our collective hair stand on end.
That suggestion is "possibility for a friend to join the game in order to help me at any time in solo mode". Co-op Assassin's Creed? That'll do nicely, Ubisoft. Though I do reserve the right to be uncooperative should my partner e.g. knock me off a roof.
Less agreeably, the document poses a return to colonial America in Connor's shoes, which immediately calls to mind the shameless milking of Ezio Auditore's storyline through Brotherhood and Revelations. I rather enjoyed both, as it happens, but I'd prefer a new setting and frontman. Go on, Alex Hutchinson. Give feudal Japan another spin on the whiteboard.
Here are seven things Ubisoft cut from Assassin's Creed 3. Somebody should really start a petition for the addition of "mystic animal relationships" via DLC.
