@bowlisimo @unmanneddrone Really? I thought people were all into Steampunk right about now. I’m honestly tired of it in most places. Well, this isn’t really steampunk but has the same fantastical 18th/19th century aesthetic. Personally I think that aesthetic is what give the setting and story an intrinsically “political” nature in my eyes. The fact that I’ll be attending imperial balls with the option to shiv people in the background is the game’s appeal for me.

It could also be because Ubisoft didn’t set Assassin’s Creed III during the French Revolution like I wanted them too.
