Yuan Dynasty China with Red Turban Rebellion (Fight Mongols) or China 1600s-1700s Qing Dynasty(Fight Empererors and Foreigners) or Feudal Japan (Samurai and Stuff)
I would choose Japan, but I’m pretty sure Ubisoft would go with Qing Dynasty China or Mongol.
Desmond ain’t asian, so this would go well with a different character. Ubisoft should really do some Asian stuff. Elements for a game with this work: -Naval battles/Travel with junks and torch funnels (torch funnel: flamethrower's ancestor) (Asian Black Flag…sorta) -Excellent for scaling cities, now with curved roofs -More adaptive/controlled combat in certain situations (Like those duels or martial artiness) -More variety for weapons, both ancient melee and foreign made firepower. Mix ninja with pirate. -More ninja stealth -River Battles on riverboats -Disguises (Nobleman, Servant, or Peasant) -Poison -Chinese Assassin’s actually don’t use hidden blades (AC: Embers); instead, they use poisoned throwing needles. In the game, they should have both hidden blades AND throwing needles -Synchronize with “wanted”-papers. This was used in 1800s though, but I think its ok.
