We already know that Ubisoft would like to know if fans want to play an assassin's free pirate-only sequel to Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag. They also want to know if we'd like co-op, if we want horses back, if we want to play through different time periods in the same city, and.... hey, want to play as a Templar?
They want to know tons more.
They're asking these things in a survey that I spent 40 minutes of my Saturday afternoon filling out. It wasn't sent to me because I run Kotaku. It was sent to me because I played Assassin's Creed IV and registered for Uplay or something. I don't know. It was in my inbox. I filled it out—not for Ubisoft, but for you.
The survey is full of interesting questions that show that Ubisoft knows where some of the franchise's weak points are. It's also clear that they are trying hard to figure out how multiplayer should factor into the franchise and it seems like they're fishing for ideas about who should star in future pirate games.
Here are most of the questions they've asked, though, forgive me, I've skipped most of the multiplayer-centric questions and the ones that ask me for some basic personal info. I've also skipped the ones where they check what other games I own (do I own Red Dead Redemption? Skyrim? Assassin's Creed III? Etc.)
The orange boxes in most of these represent my selections.
Note: If you want to skip to the juiciest stuff, scroll down or simply search for the phrase "good stuff" and read from there.
