Assassin’s Creed 3’s “Surprise” Intro Was Kept a Secret Internally

Assassin’s Creed 3 director has acknowledged some of the things that held this game back, he mentioned some of the things he would like to change including the opening duration.

Last week, we came to know that Assassin’s Creed 3 was getting a remaster it spurred a lot of mixed comments by the fans of the Assassin’s Creed title. Since for most of the audience, this third one was a mediocre entry.

However, now the game director Alex Hutchinson has shed light on some of the things that he is intent on changing. He recently took to his Twitter account and revealed, some of the things that he would like to edit in the remaster.

He has finally acknowledged that the six-hour opening prologue was a bad idea and that it shall be getting changed in Assassin’s Creed 3 Remaster.

For those who have played this sequel, they would know that when the game opens you do not get to play the main character, Connor, instead, you play as Haytham. Adding to its longevity is the fact that initially, you are not in America as well.

America is where the whole game takes place so traveling there was pretty long, this opening was pretty much an overlong period which the players had to pass.

Alex Hutchinson on his official Twitter account writes,

We should have broken up Haytham’s intro into chunks and interspersed them throughout the game to get to Connor faster.

Hutchinson said that at one point he kept this long prologue as a secret in order to surprise. Apparently, the surprise was a little too much for the audience.

Having said that this is not the first time an Assassin’s Creed game is getting a remaster, previously we have had Assassin’s Creed Rogue remastered as well, which apparently did good in a way.
