I genuinely do not care about the Assassin's Order anymore. I do not care about the frame story. This game could have just been UbiSoft Presents: Pirates With an Updated Assassin's Creed Engine and I would have been totally fine with that. Edward's outfit is just...I mean, I get they want visual continuity, but at some point they have to do something to make the characters truly distinct visually. Why would a pirate captain go around in a white hoodie? It was really cool when Connor got the tricorne and the blue outfit when at sea, and it sort of implies that hey, assassins don't all need to wear white because that's a bad way of blending in, having a distinct ages-spanning uniform. The Animus was nifty with Desmond but now I just don't need it - the story can be told as a normal story now, and future games set in the year 20xx can handle the ramifications of Desmond's actions. It all feels kind of oddly shoehorned now.
