On November 14, 2022, in less than five months, it will be fifteen years since the premiere of the first game in the series. Doctrine killer. Ubisoft’s birthday celebration is now underway, although the biggest guns won’t be released until September, when we find out what the French giant will be doing with its flagship brand in the near future. Fans of the series are quietly counting on the fact that, in addition to information about the new game, the publisher will take the opportunity to address the issue of remaking the series or finally re-release “One”.that has been hurting Ubisoft for years. The upcoming anniversary would be perfect for this, especially since we did not receive such an announcement in 2017, when the “Killers” celebrated their 10th birthday.
Could this happen? The odds, of course, though I find them to be relatively small. My lack of belief in returning to the Holy Land is mainly due to Ubisoft’s reluctance to do anything about it. Reluctance, which led, moreover, to an interesting result – the first Doctrine killer It is the only part of the series that has not been officially released in any way on 8th generation consoles. The French ported to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One all the big games from the “four” down, and added the smallest Release And the a fraudBut they’ve never done that with ‘the one’ that fans have been calling for years for a comeback.
What might result from the aforementioned reluctance? Actually there are two theories. The first says that the game is very different from later versions of the series in terms of design, so it requires a complete rebuild, for example replacing boring and repetitive units with different real tasks, because today it is difficult to enjoy indigestible beginners (mini-games) before it finally comes out On the table. He will hit the main course, that is, eliminate the right target. In short – it could use a well thought out remake, which not only focuses on improving the visual setting, but also greatly confuses the gameplay. And this, in turn, will require a lot of money, so Ubisoft simply does not pay off.
The second theory relates to the content itself, and more specifically to the various projectiles directed at religion. Doctrine killer After all, it is the story of a Syrian Christian killer who belongs to a group and openly mocks the figure of Jesus Christ. For the brotherhood teacher, the teacher, Jesus was just a carpenter and a boosterWho, thanks to the artifacts created by the first civilization, performed his famous “miracles”, from turning water into wine, starting with the resurrection of Lazarus. There are many such accents in “one” and the developers were well aware that they could be controversial for many recipients. The famous message about “a game made by a multicultural team of different faiths” did not come out of nowhere. And today we don’t pay much attention to this painting because it is a permanent element in all installments of the series Doctrine killer. Originally, however, it was an ordinary double protector, intended to make recipients aware that the group of authors included people who had very different views and who themselves did not necessarily agree with the slogans their work displayed.
This is where the crux of the problem lies. What went almost unnoticed fifteen years ago may cause needless controversy today. For the above reasons, the first Doctrine killer It clearly stands out from what this chain is today, a perfectly balanced product aimed at the masses, which is the elimination of potential divisions, not the creation of new ones. Jedynka seems to be very uncomfortable in this regard which is why Ubisoft is not keen on updating it. International brand, etc. Doctrine killer There is no doubt that it already exists, so don’t bother, because these games are supposed to sell and nothing else.
Of course, the theory I’m defending will come head-to-head when a possible rework of the first installment of the series is announced in September, which I’m all too familiar with. However, I support my opinion, because I think that if for some reason Ubisoft had not been afraid of the adventures of Altair during the Crusade, the game would have resumed somehow a long time ago, especially since the fans themselves were asking for it. for years. Oddly enough, this didn’t happen, and people from Ubisoft associated with this brand obviously avoid commenting on this topic.
It really is I’d like to be wrong and hope a remake or remake becomes a reality. Sure, I can still run the game on a PC, and that might happen to me from time to time, but with such a move Ubisoft will prove to me what I think can fit between the animations. All in all, it will be a pleasant experience. The new generation may discover that this series Doctrine killer They can be very rude in the past, and you understand why the accompanying mantra “History is our playground” makes more sense than it does now. At the time, people could drive around the gang, unfortunately not so much today.
