Old West Assassin's Creed by morganagod Old West Assassin's Creed by morganagod
This is an idea that just wouldn't leave me alone.

Here's a journal detailing my ideas for an old west assassin's creed. -> [link]

If you're interested, I will re-air the creation of this piece, scratch to finish at livestream dot com/morganagod on 1/8/2011 at 9pm.

Interesting concept, imagine an Assassin running around with a pair of single-action six-shooters and a cutlass! :D

The Old West idea was tossed around a bit in AC4 in a few emails between all the co-workers considering ideas for future projects.

I don't know about the Old west, but I would love to see how active the Assassins were in Abolitionist America, rubbing elbows with Frederick Douglas, William Lloyd Garrison, Angela Grimke, and John Brown. Have it end as the Civil War is beginning, then the DLC picks up right afterwards, either with the original MC, or with a new character, and we get to interact with fellow Assassin, maybe, Jesse James.

Hmm, I did sense the next Assassin's Creed franchise, but hoping it for a Japanese one.

Might be perfect foreshadowing because one of the rumors for AC5 is a "wild west" setting.  Nice art.

you could tie in all the old west heros Like Wild Bill or Wyatt Eurp. The Ok Corral could even be a mission... robbing trains on horse back, almost like a lone ranger feel.

I think it's funny that the new assassin is Connor, and he's exactly the opposite of your wild west assassin... he's part Native American.

Only flaw i see is that the old west wasnt known for its tall buildings so there would be far less parkour in an old west Assassins Creed.

I'm pretty sure I addressed that in the link that explains the whole of the idea.

Ah yes, here is the quote "The other side of the coin that defines Assassin’s Creed is the navigation. I think that navigating cities could remain a part of the game, since I’m pretty sure there were a few decent sized ones by the late 1800s in America. However, this game would introduce those elements to the outside, and the outside would play a larger part than it had in the previous games."

In other words; 19th century american cities + mountainous regions of the west = plenty of chances for parkour . Learn to think outside of the box dude.

Yeah. You go around the Old West assassinating people and fighting Old West templars. And then you fight aliens and... whoops sorry, wrong franchise.

this should seriously be sent to ubisoft,i think theyre going to keep making assassins creed games in other times,perhaps not even related to the main desmond storyline,this should be the model for one of those games.

Okay, I gotta laugh. The idea is awesome as hell! But just yesterday, my dad was looking at video games and he wanted to buy Red Dead Redemption. I asked him what it was about and he said it was like a Wild West Assassin's Creed.
An Old West part of the Assassin's Creed would be epic, but I'd also like a bit on the American Revolution, and maybe the Civil War.

I read it. Your new fighting system sounds interesting. I agree with what you said about the swordplay system. All I really do is press x, then pull RT and press x, then press x again, etc. Yeah. Not too exciting after playing the game about twice through.
I'm reasonably confused, though, about the Booth thing. In one of 16's video files (I want to say it was maybe the 14th or 15 one, though that may not be right) you had to scroll the thingy-mah-jobber over different symbols, and one of the names that popped up was Booth. I was kinda confused if Booths was an Assassin or Templar.
