“Weerasuriya said the game’s early story was rooted in historical events, including portions set in Jerusalem during the Crusades.”
See, right there. I’d really rather have played a game that took place as a single person during some huge event (like the Crusades.) I’m not a religious guy but let’s face it some of the more fascinating bits of human history happened during that time.
I’m not at all saying that this game doesn’t sound interesting but at this point I’m kind of looking at it like I did with Dishonored. In the case of that game it looked absolutely stunning but at the end of the day I couldn’t empathize with anyone in the world; so I fell off.
I guess we’ll see what happens here. I’m still cautiously optimistic.
