The fans are super passionate about Assassin’s Creed we all know that and we thought that this was the perfect opportunity to give something back to them where they can write their own Stories and create their own tales within these worlds that we’ve created for them Around a month and a half before launch we wanted to have an early access for a limited number of players under NDA Normally we would do an early access that is a closed beta and it’s invite only or you can apply to be within it. This was an early access in the sense that it was a very small group of people. We invited only a handful of fans and media to try it out and to give us feedback In the end we received very valuable feedback from these community members. The devs in Quebec were very happy they were participating in the secret forum that we had put in place to gather players’ feedback and they were answering them directly Turned out well I think. Thierry was very keen on answering a lot of questions. One of the things that surprised me the most is how our players were answering each others’ questions. I envisioned that people would ask a lot more questions to us directly but the way the community is kind of like self-managing and helping each other out and promoting each other’s Stories, I thought it was very nice We decided to launch into open beta so that we could update the tools on a regular basis. It gave us the flexibility to be able to say sorry that didn’t quite work out, this is what we’re going to try next, let us know, give us feedback, do you like this, does it need changing still? And it’s been great having that flexibility within our development cycle. I would like to tell the community to keep up the good work. This feature cannot live without you. I was expecting to have great Stories within maybe four weeks and we had great Stories within the first week. There is a lot of Stories that are exceptional, honestly. I know that our dev team are all playing the quests, they’re having a great time so if you do have content that you have created and you want to share whether you’re a dev or a community member, they love to see it and hear about it so share it with everyone within the team!
