    I owned every AC game and played 95% stealth...Stealth in this game is broken. They can see through walls, buildings and sometimes when they do spot you...It goes instant red. Please resolve these issues. If not, I will get a refund because the game is broken.

  • Contrary to popular belief, Lorem Ipsum is not simply random text. It has roots in a piece of classical Latin literature from 45 BC, making it over 2000 years old. Richard McClintock, a Latin professor at Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia, looked up one of the more obscure Latin words, consectetur, from a Lorem Ipsum passage, and going through the cites of the word in classical literature, discovered the undoubtable source. Lorem Ipsum comes from sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 of "de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum" (The Extremes of Good and Evil) by Cicero, written in 45 BC. This book is a treatise on the theory of ethics, very popular during the Renaissance. The first line of Lorem Ipsum, "Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet..", comes from a line in section 1.10.32.

    Hey @icekingof74

    You can try changing the difficulty of stealth elements:

    • Open the Options menu in game.
    • Switch to the Gameplay tab.
    • Locate the Stealth section.
    • Select Stealth Difficulty.
    • Choose Apprentice (Easy)Assassin (Default) or Master Assassin (Hard) to change the difficulty.

    Hopefully that will help you out playing in a stealthier combat style.

    @IceKingof74 - Thank you for sharing the link to that Reddit post with us. This is a topic that we've had raised to us previously, and feedback has been passed to the development team accordingly. Could you possibly share a video clip demonstrating the behaviour you have noticed whereby you are noticed even when approaching an enemy / objective in stealth, or under cover? If spotted, can you also show that the reaction is immediate? It would also be helpful if you could clarify the overall difficulty you are playing on in terms of the story as well as stealth. Thanks!

    @VINI_K1_123 - As above, could you also provide a video that shows the type of experience you have had with the stealth mechanics in-game? Please also let us know which difficulty settings you chose for the story / stealth. Thank you!

    Hi

    Thanks for the opportunity to share our feedback

    It is random behavior, hence it would difficult to record this but I will try.

    Please read this:

    I believe solve AI bugs is not an easy task. I understand.
    But there is some minor changes, very simple to implement which would greatly improve our the experience as stealth players.

    1) The red glow used to mark enemies is very noisy and disruptive, and it breaks all the immersion (I'm sure 100% of the players agree about this).
    Give us an more subtle way to tag / untag enemies (a small simple translucent icon would be perfect).
    Leave the red glow only during the Odin sight and Synin flight.

    2) Usually, when the enemy detector bar appears on the screen its already to late. It should appear early.

    3) Give us a option to tag/untag enemies using Synin.

    DONE! With this we would have a much better stealth gameplay. Not perfect but much much better.

    I hope you at least consider this suggestion.

    Hello there!

    @blacktiefamily - Thanks for sharing that video with us. Just to confirm, is this a video you created yourself, or is it a video you found created by another player on YouTube? We can then include this information in your report.

    @VINI_K1_123 - Thank you for providing us with additional feedback from your own experience with stealth in-game, and for providing suggestions on how you would change this. I'll forward these suggestions to the development team for further consideration.

    If you are able to record any issues you've encountered with the current stealth behaviour in-game, please don't hesitate to share these videos with us so we can take a closer look.

    Thanks! 😊

    @ubi-borealis thank you for the feedback. We love the AC franchise and just want to help make it even better. Thanks

    @ubi-borealis It was made by my friend, Peter Stratford who is just patient enough to record all of these instances (and skill-based AC videos to make it look decent despite being utterly broken). I stopped playing this game after patch 1.04 which is the patch that broke stealth.

    Thank you for confirming this blacktiefamily, we will pass this information onto our AC team.

    Should anyone be able to provide any more video examples of this, in different locations, using different approaches, please post some in this thread and please show us the stealth options you are using in the menu.

    We will happily pass this on to the team as feedback and to help try and replicate the exact same situations.
