Assassin's Creed Mod Idea.



  • Hello everybody, I was thinking a lot lately and I just got this awesome Idea for a mod that I obviously I can´t do myself, but I will just throw it out there so people can hear me and share their oppinion.
    I had to move the thread to the Ideas and Suggestions section since the brainstorming part seems always to be abandoned and lacking of much feedback responses :? but anyways let’s get to the idea.

    SHADOW OF THE ASSASSIN
    Shadow of the Assasin is a full conversion mod For Chivalry that inmerses player into the Assassins Creed lore in a unique and epic experience. Bassicaly in this mod you are a templar that is being trained in the Abstergo Corp. to know who and how your enemy operates. The Assassins. In this mod players take the role of the Templars during the crusades of the XIII century and the Assassins, I based this mod out of the The Hidden Source mod for HL2 because, In Shadow Of the Assassin you are always a single assassin and your objective is to kill the templars silently (None of that super assassin bs where you are an ultimate bad*ss) which are other players. The Assassin has the ability to climb walls, he can use all of his gadgets (Hidden Blade, smoke bomb throwing knifes, small sword, dagger, punches, bow and arrow and even the crossbow Altaïr uses in the first trailer) even with the help of the Animus Technology if he kills several enemies without dying he can cloak and turn practically invicible. but, he has a few down sides. He can be killed with a few strikes and doesn´t have the durability to maintain a lenghly combat so he’s best used as a silent predator.

    The templars would be the normal chivalry classes but obviously templar crusader looking.

    The game would take place during the events of Assasins Creed 1 but would not be diretly tied to the AC1 storyline, instead they would take place as separate events.The maps would take place in Damascus, Acre, Jerusalem, Masyaf and even the sandbox part of the game where you just explore the landscape and collect banners, yeah I remember that part.
    The maps would be desinged so they would have areas that are unreachable for the templars and that ae reachable for the assassins so this would make for some assymmmetrial gameplay and the assassin coulduse various hiding points scattered around the map when he’s in a risky situation.

    The gamemodes available for the mod would initially consist of three.
    Huntdown, where your only objective is to kill templars no respawns.

    Escort, where templars have to escort a major teplar figure which is another player form point A to point B without the assassin killing him.

    Retrieval, where 1 of the templars has the eden´s apple or another magical artifact and the assassin has to find out who he is by killing templars until he finds who is the right one, retrieves the artifact and escape.

    I would really, really love if a mod like this was done for Chivalry, it would be soo awesome and fun! I don’t know if Ubisoft would actually take actions if this was made though :? but it still would be an awesome idea if you think about it!
    Tell me guys what you think and we will discuss everything down below :D



  • I think the bushido mod guys were doing something similar to this but with ninjas.



  • Argh, again with one of these assassin fanboyism suggestion

    So you want one assassin versus entire army of templar, you’d have to make him overpowered.



  • @EricFong:

    Argh, again with one of these assassin fanboyism suggestion

    Are Assissins Creed suggestions the only ones who are bad, or…? I’ve never played Assassins Creed, it has never really interested me what I know about it (maybe it’s the hipster in me because everyone talk about it.) But well, many mods for games are tributes to other games, what makes Assassins Creed the annoying candidate? :P When you think about it, though, it’s not too different from Chivalry, like third person and melee-based, so there’s not much point in doing a mod for it. Unless he specifically want assassins to fight in an open battlefield and they don’t have that in AC…?

    It is not a bad game, but I don’t like the concept of 1 mere assassin to take out entire well organized soldiers like templar.



  • Goddamit Savage, he’s a TEMPLAR! His entire life consists hating Assassins and hunting them down. :P

    As for the mod itself…interesting but hard to balance. Altair was just mowing dem templars down like herbs, so I don’t know how exactly the combat system from AC could be converted to fit into Chiv’s.



  • Um Crushed can take down an entire army of noobs.

    Great mod with some tweaking.



  • @gregcau:

    Um Crushed can take down an entire army of noobs.

    An army of noobs, yes.

    Knights Templars weren’t exactly noobs, or else we wouldn’t know about them so well.

    Have you heard about a mod for HL2 called The Hidden that’s basicaly where I based of this mod and talking about balance I think that the assassin should be able to only carry one of his cool gadgets like you can only use smoke bombs or throwing knifes or crossbow like the specials of every class in chivalry, and when the assassin gets enough kills then he can use one of his powers of preferance like the animus cloaking or the eagle vision.



  • @TheUndying:

    I love templar as historical being, not as video game figures who can get killed like weed on the field.

    It work in that way because the IRIS are carrying firearms, where Hidden is invisible, knife and having predator hop.

    And see if you can think up a way to make the gameplay as good as that as it is in medieval period where sword is more common. Why don’t you use the game mode of “Trouble in Terrorist time” style instead? Where group of templar with one or two traitor(assassin) have one hit kill backstab knife but extremely weak to the front, with trap setting where you can lure templar into it and kill them all before they found you all in stealth way?

    That gameplay type is more balanced for Chivalry system

    That would be another awesome gamemode, but the problem is that if we just did the mod in that way then it would become a Trouble in terrorist town clone for chivalry, of course yes I based my mod Idea out of the Hidden mod but it was because it was the nearest thing that resembled the assassins creed series and I also added new gamemodes and weapons into the idea. The real thing would be finding a sweet spot for the gameplay where both sides have equal chances of winning the fight. But that trouble in terrorist town type of gamemode it’s also a really cool idea to :)



  • Pfff knights templar? Noobs. Order of St John is where its at.
