Assassin's Creed 3 ending will "pay-off" and provide "answers"

Assassin's Creed 3 is set to tie up the loose ends left by previous games. The title will also leave plenty of questions as to what will happen in the future.

Lead writer Corey May said whoever takes over the series next will have room to do what they want.

"Should they decide in the future to do other stuff, there's plenty of room to explore, plenty of seeds that have been planted that won’t conflict," he said.

"It was my intent to provide pay-off and to answer questions for those who are invested in them. It should provide a fairly lengthy ending that will also give room for answers and pay-off."

The storyline has been difficult to follow right now. Previous endings have changed the series up dramatically and left many gamers confused. May reveals AC3 isn't going to unleash a random twist for the sake of it.

"The ending should not come out of nowhere. You will not wake up and find that you were in an Animus reliving the life of someone who was in an Animus. We are not doing that. It was not all just a dream."

"I think people that have invested in the Desmond storyline will understand where the end of the game comes from. We're tying up loose ends and providing answers and resolution to things. You're not going to get another tremendous insane-o cliffhanger."

Assassin's Creed 3 releases on PlayStation and Xbox 360 late October.

The way it should be.
F.U. Battlestar Galactica!

I have to say that this is the first "AC" since the original that I actually would very much like to play. Answers that round off a story and give the player satisfaction is important (are you listening BioWare?) yet so are intrigueing questions that taunt the player and leave them hanging for mre. Looks like they might just have the balance right (still listening BioJunk?).

It was very good, until the end :)
Then it killed most of the interest I had in their universe :(.

Battlestar Galactica suffered from the fact that no twist or ending would ever be able to live up to the story they laid out before it; was always going to be slightly anti-climatic.

I'm glad May commented on those stupid 'We're actually playing Desmond's son reliving his memories' conspiracy theories though. Can't wait for this game :)

That's true, but my main issue is that they left all the mysticism unexplained, which is especially mean considering the huge role it played trough out the entire show. The show simply ended on what is basically a nasty cliffhanger.

i know i still ask myself who those 2 "ghost" types are they do claim to be guardian angels and the cylon child idd a lot left unanswered

I didn't mind the end. It was a bit hoakey but still better than the original's idea of the Cylons invading present day Earth....or was it? Hmmmm.....
Anyone watch "Caprica". Some very fine acting but I feel a big missed opportunity overall. Where's Season 2?

Wasn't that thing cancelled?

Yeah, got cancelled in favour of the new 'Blood & Chrome' series set during the First Cylon War. 'Caprica' didn't have enough Cylons or battles in it, so the critics said.

I think the whole idea of the, guardian angels (?) was playing off the phrase "God works in mysterious ways"; namely obliterating an entire civilisation and forcing the survivors into a five year battle to avoid extinction before finally telling them that they had actually been replaced by proto-homo sapiens :/

Probably a bit cerebral for Joe Public. When does "Blood & Chrome" start?

Probably; I always found the story and filming style quite engaging. As for the new series, the Pilot's been filmed, but I don't think it's been picked up by a particular network yet (so you'll probably see it on Sky Atlantic soon enough).

Good news. My "BSG" discs are almost worn thin by now. Such a great character-driven show, as "Caprica" was, only with splendid, if controversial visual effects (manny did't like the jostling camera in the space battles whereas I thought that was the best approach).

Ps. Bought all the Bear McCreary soundtracks as well. Beautiful music.

I loved it as well, and actually liked the ending, I found the final minutes to be beautiful cinematically, and the "All along the watchtower" at the end was really nice. Maybe Bob Dylan is a cylon?

I do, however, resent it just a little bit for providing inspiration for SGU, which ran the amazing Stargate franchise into the ground.

"SGU" didn't finish "Stargate" for me. It ended years ago with shoddy script writing and poor acting. I watched the Pilot for "SGU" and wanted to break the disc in half:)
