I realized shortly after posting that this may sound like Avelina is going to be in Soul Calibur. HA! We could be so lucky…
Actually I haven’t been much of a Soul Calibur fan since the original on Dreamcast, but I did dabble with two (Link for the win!) and I liked Zasalamel in three, and I don’t really remember four and I really didn’t like five that much.
Don’t even get me started on Broken Destiny…
Anyways, Aveline will be a guest character in the Playstation versions of Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag. So, that’s kinda good, I guess. I dunno, Altair got what, like, three or four games? Edzio got to be in three games and was a guest in Soul Calibur. Buuut…the Native guy and the Black girl only get to be in one each?
Aveline will be a guest in the game, featured in a number of miniature side missions. I’m assuming Sony paid to keep her out of Xbox, but as a result this just leaves Aveline as a footnote in the grand Assassin’s creed mythos.
From Ubisoft lead writer Darby McDevitt via Comic-Con, we have the following quote:
“It’s a ways forward so Aveline is a bit older. It’s not directly related to the end of her story. If Assassin’s Creed 4 is like a novel, Aveline’s missions are like a short story.”
So, if anything, Aveline gets to go from “Maybe she’s real, maybe she’s not” to being an Easter Egg. Woo hoo.
