What historical explorer will they use for UC3?

10 replies 146 views Edited Mar 11, 2010

UC1 had Sir Francis Drake & UC2 had Marco Polo. Do you think they will use a historical explorer for the next game?

They might go for the cliche and use DaVinci or maybe some Greek stuff. Lots of ol' historians there.

There are several historical explorers who could serve as fodder for a new plot.  The obvious one would be Juan Ponce de León - the Spaniard who discovered Florida while searching for the fountain of youth back in the 1500s. There's also Francisco de Orellana, another Spanish explorer and conquistador who disappeared while exploring the Amazon in 1546.

 

If they wanted a change of location, they could use Friedrich Wilhelm Ludwig Leichhardt, a Prussian explorer who was exploring Australia when he mysteriously vanished in 1848 while crossing the Moreton Bay.  Maybe some sort of Outback adventure.

 

Oh, and John Cabot, an Italian explorer, who disappeared along with his five ships during a 1499 expedition to find a western route from Europe to Asia.

 

But I think one of the most interesting, dramatically, would be a story based on Gaspar and Miguel Corte-Real.  They were brothers from Portugal.  Gaspar went looking for the Northwest Passage from Europe to Asia in 1501, and only two of his ships came back - the one he was on did not.  His brother went looking for him in 1502 with three ships, and again, the one with Miguel went missing while the other two returned.  I'm sure the brains at ND could come up with a fascinating explanation for that one.

If it ain't broke don't fix it.  I thought that the story was great.  I feel like sometimes developers put to much effort into making a story so unique that it becomes to hard to follow and just plain weird.  Example would be MGS 4, which I thought was an awesome game but the story seemed to be just a little to weird and yes all the MGS games have weird stories but 4 just seemed to get a little out of control in my opinion.  

 

I think it would be great to have the same general story just a different treasure maybe The Lost city of Olympus. However it might be cool for 3 if they don't run into any sci-fi stuff this time but instead just tougher more equipped enemies than what you would see at the beginning of the game.

Obvious- I've never heard of the chap

 

And while that does sound interesting it sounds quite similar to Marco Polo's journey. However like you said, ND would be sure to change it in a way so it's not as similar to UC2. I do wish they actually found the ships in UC2, they found the men but no ships. Unless I missed something on each of my 7 playthroughs.
