The title says it all. This is something a lot of people have been asking for since the first game came out.
Just as we can choose the color of clothing, quick buttons for weapons, etc. -It would really mean a lot to be able to choose what weapons to carry with you. Really feeling like your assassin was tailor made to suit your play style.

Please Ubisoft. This small detail would mean a lot.

Re post this with a poll please, I would like the option to simply un equip armour and weapons...
Do you think you could squeeze in a mention about his cape being 'THERE' for a start and un-equiping that as well! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

I personally think the system is fine the way it is. The only problem I had with weapons is in ACB if I was fighting guards and I threw my heavy sword at a guard then went back to pick it back up often instead of MY sword I'd pick up the guard's crappy little sword instead and that became my new sword and you couldn't drop it in order to pick your own sword back up and since you can't throw small swords you were stuck with it until you went to a blacksmith shop or the Assassin hideout to replace it. That was my biggest weapon peeve with ACB. There needs to be an option to drop a sword if you pick up the wrong one so you can get your own sword back after throwing it at a guard.

*High Five* I hated that SO freaking much, but think about the armor thing as a bigger choice. More choice equalls more freedom.

I want to be able to unequip that to, but don't they know about this already? This is like the fourth topic on this.

If they don't put this on ACR, they just haven't been getting the message.

OP needs to be a little more specific then. Because yeah, you can walk around without armor on.
Ezio's base outfit/costume is 'no armor'.

Now I'm seeing that everyone just wants to be able to walk around not being dressed as an
Assassin.

But you can drop weapons you've picked up from guards. I did it all the time. If you've picked up a weapon from a guard, just quick select Unarmed Weapon status again and he'll drop it right then and there.

If you didn't have a weapon equipped in that slot, since he threw the sword and picked up a new one, it counts that as the new weapon. When you pick it up it says "Weapon changed"

YES, I definitely want this. I play the game without buying armor and I get rid of my medium/heavy weapons. I have to buy the heavy and then throw it, and I will still have my small weapon.

I always wanted to unequip the crossbow. I don't like how it looks. I never used it since I don't like stealth. The only weapon I like to use are the hidden blades.

you should be able to walk around looking like a normal citizen so you can blend in better while still having the option to equip a couple of essential weapons to take down a target or listen into a conservation.
u wouldnt be completly unprotected either because your assassin recruits could watch over you and you can disarm gaurds and use there weapon to defend yourself simples!

Though I doubt they'll include it in ACR, I would like it if the future ancestor that Desmond would end up as in the Animus would not wear the Assassin robes until they went to kill their target.

It would allow them to go around as a normal civilian in the day and then once they have all their information, they could wear the robes and set off for their target.

Trust me, I'm not 'slow', I knew perfectly well what you meant.

I don't mind whether or not people can un-equip their armour or not, I just thought it would be a cool concept if the player didn't go around for the whole game in just the Assassin Robes.

I figured that as time goes by and the game gets closer to the modern age, the Templars would be able to take out the Assassin if he paraded around in his robes all day and night.

I honestly don't see the point of being able to do it.

If in the game you actually got noticed waking around carrying a ton of swords and knives, then yes, you'd need to get rid of them around guards, or buy a robe or something to put over it all.

But you don't. Nobody cares if you walk around looking like a one-man-army.

And to unequip stuff, just go 'home' and take the stuff off. You can change your weapons around at any blacksmith. Don't see the big deal.

But this is where again, i believe AC has gone off in a totally different direction than it first started off. because Altair didn't look like a walking blacksmith shop. He was discreet. Now we simply have too much.

Yeah there are a few things that go unnoticed. But the Assassins in Rome looked nothing like the populace (at least Ac2 was a noble).Constantinople assassins seem way better at the whole blending thing. Removing armor just really comes down to choice in what the player wants. I just don't want to spend my whole save file avoiding armor again.

That's true I suppose. Though really this should only be a minor annoyance. It's not like it breaks your game or anything.

Didn't someone at Ubi say they wanted to give the players choice? This particular choice has been one we have been asking for since AC2. Out of all the changes that have happened after AC2 (many we have not asked for, unlike this small favor) this is the only one that could make the game harder, as you could remove armor to increase the chance of dieing.
Bigger things have been done in patches.

None at Ubi seems to really care about what we post anymore. We're just throwing messages in bottles into a giant volcano.

If my incredibly optimistic opinion (shut up, it is) is true than no one listens to us and we're just howling at the moon. I trust my opinion (you should too, I have good opinions as always), so the only reason they would add this is if Ubi expected to extract more money from the unguided aimless masses for doing so. No one won't buy the game just because someone decided to not add a small feature some people have been asking for. You would need a substantial amount of people asking for it in places other than this place ie: Twitter, Facebook and YouTube. Even then they would only consider it a minor thing that probably won't change sales much.

@LightRey: Curses, you're right. But still, I must leave the message for other evil, malicious and utterly cunning villains (much like myself) to find it and orchestrate such a vicious plan of their own.

You'd be surprised at how difficult it is to find a person who's in a large group of people, no matter how radically different they look. And in Revelations, Ezio has a muted color to his robes, and looks like he could be a hunter coming back from the woods, with his fur pauldrons and crossbow. He looks very discreet. And he could easily blend in with the peoples of Constantinople. Just look at the scene where he's walking with Yusuf. Both of them look like they totally belong in the environment. Of course, the guards will grow used to his outfit eventually, but it is incredibly easy to use crowds to draw attention away from yourself, even in real life. Obviously it works a lot better with more than 5 people to blend with, but they've increased the size of blend groups every game, and I hope they do it again, so it seems more realistic. From the footage we've seen, the crow has much more believable reactions to you, along with a dodge animation if you run at them.

Seems like something to looks forward to, now I can finally run through the streets killing swarm after swarm of guards with a challenge. Personally though it doesn't make a difference how much hp I have, I use either bare-hands or hidden blades. Either way they counter anything, leaving very little time to even care about hp. One of my main hopes for this is that some guards don't let up when I'm weak, I show visible signs of damage, and I don't HAVE to avoid counters to be hit.

I use the 'Young Ezio' skin for aesthetic value to make him blend into the crowds. This can be alot of fun if you just go about pretending to be a civilian.

I have a few good ideas for the 'costume/armor/weapons' issue people are pleading for. I was playing Metal Gear Solid 4 last night and I think something similar to Old Snake's camouflage system can be easily implemented into Assassin's Creed.

Now we know that if we want we can go to the Assassin's quaters (Ezio's Castello/Tiber Island) and down grade the costumes to the basic leather or upgrade to the most toughest steel... likewise we can exchange weapons, but we want to be able to disengage armor and remove weapons specifically for the sake of having an Assassin's cosmetics seem like that of an Assassin: Stealthy! i.e not standing out by being armed to the teeth amidst a bunch of plebs.

My solution is thus: in the inventory menu there is actually a screen that shows what weaponry and armor Ezio is carrying... all that be needed is simply have an on/off function next to each item either in the inventory or in the hide-out when viewing each particular item, (just like when you turn on/off functions on the map to hide certain 'legends'). In fact having this effect the health synch-bar would be a great way of making the game have more personality and customize difficulty leveling for those who do or not like a challenge.

That goes for the weaponry and the armor. The first could be done through the Weapon Inventory:

http://img835.imageshack.us/img835/5428/weaponinventory.jpg

Essentially the only certain weapons give away Ezio's external appearance as an Assassin:

WEAPONS:
*Crossbow (ON/OFF)
*Gloves (ON/OFF)
*Metal Celstus (ON/OFF)
*Sword (ON/OFF)
*Dagger (ON/OFF)

We know that the sword can already be discarded if you simply supply a Heavy Weapon and discard it, but I think that any weapon can be discarded in similar manner. I don't think the only weapon that should be compulsory should be the hidden blade/poison/gun and satchel weapons (eg. smoke bombs and maybe throwing knives)

An easy function with a cosmetic response.

I think they could make the armor inventory with the same options but extend it by turning it into a wardrobe function that extends to costumes - like in MGS4. Where you can zoom in on facial details and clothing parts to customize eg:

HEAD:
*Facial (BEARD/CLEAN)
*Hood (ON/OFF)

ARMOR:
*_________Greaves (ON/OFF
*_________Vambraces (ON/OFF)
*_________Chest Guard (ON/OFF)
*_________Spaulders (ON/OFF)

COSTUME/SKIN:

*Young Ezio
*Middle Ezio
*Old Ezio
*Altair
*Armor of Brutus
*Armor of Altair

The skins would be just that, over-riding the Armor function but keeping the cosmetic without armor... and to add an even more interesting function, I think they should implement a stealth skins setting... for example the way John Marston can infiltrate certain gangs by having their costumes. We have already seen how this has been used for individual missions in both II & Brotherhood (eg. Roman Legionary Armor & French Legionary Armor) I say make a ****load of down-loadable skins as DLC for each faction of a region. Or event hide them in the game or hand them out in a reward scheme for syncs. I'd certainly buy them and Ubisoft would be making more $$$ for our love. For example:

*Civilian (Galata)
*Civilian (Beyazit)
*Civilian (Constantin)
*Civilian (Masyaf)
*Ottoman Guard (Imperial)
*Templar Guard (Cappadocia)
etc.

Each having a function in their relavant areas... like stealth/no notoriety for starters and then stuff like getting discounts at shops in those areas maybe - especially if ther re-implement the rich, middle,poor system... whatever with the added bonus of having an aesthetic vibe we so love about the cinematic masterpiece that is Assassin's Creed.

Yes, please give the option to remove armor. Or at least do not have a quest requiring to put a piece on.

I was even a little misled back before Brotherhood was released. There were pictures of Ezio without armor and having two matching gauntlets on his arms with dual hidden blades. Also in the game you might notice, when you start a mission and it displays the objective window to the side. You can see most of the pictures show Ezio without any armor on. That was the look I was always going for. Loved the "feather-like" design of the upper sleeves, and the shoulder pads just ended up covering that up.

I have a few good ideas for the 'costume/armor/weapons' issue people are pleading for. I was playing Metal Gear Solid 4 last night and I think something similar to Old Snake's camouflage system can be easily implemented into Assassin's Creed.

Now we know that if we want we can go to the Assassin's quaters (Ezio's Castello/Tiber Island) and down grade the costumes to the basic leather or upgrade to the most toughest steel... likewise we can exchange weapons, but we want to be able to disengage armor and remove weapons specifically for the sake of having an Assassin's cosmetics seem like that of an Assassin: Stealthy! i.e not standing out by being armed to the teeth amidst a bunch of plebs.

My solution is thus: in the inventory menu there is actually a screen that shows what weaponry and armor Ezio is carrying... all that be needed is simply have an on/off function next to each item either in the inventory or in the hide-out when viewing each particular item, (just like when you turn on/off functions on the map to hide certain 'legends'). In fact having this effect the health synch-bar would be a great way of making the game have more personality and customize difficulty leveling for those who do or not like a challenge.

That goes for the weaponry and the armor. The first could be done through the Weapon Inventory:

Essentially the only certain weapons give away Ezio's external appearance as an Assassin:

WEAPONS:
*Crossbow (ON/OFF)
*Gloves (ON/OFF)
*Metal Celstus (ON/OFF)
*Sword (ON/OFF)
*Dagger (ON/OFF)

I LOVE Saqaliba's idea. But I also don't mind the idea of being limited to a certain amount of weapons also, so that I have to pick what to bring.

Ah, that brings me back to my idea of creating your own Assassin in a game, like an RPG. That would be awesome..

So they're willing to go through all this stuff to give us skins and they just won't let us take off the armor? Man, what a rip, and Gabe's excuses are well...never really thought out. Oh well, here's me hoping for the best.

I remember my first reaction to this started in AC2 when they force you to buy some armor. So I go ahead and buy it and I was like damn that just looks ugly compared too what he was originally wearing, its okay, I'll just take it off. But nopeee, I find the armory wear you can equip DIFFERENT armor but you can't wear the DEFAULT one, what? Ok? Why design it then?
So I was hoping they fix that in Brotherhood, but nope that infamous mission that forces you to buy amour comes back and I'm just like damn man this roman spaulder is ugly and does not look like it belongs at all. So the whole time I'm playing I'm having fun but I keep thinking, damn this dark leather armor I"m stuck with until I get the best amour just looks so rediculous on his badass white robes.

I just don't get how you have a system where you can equip different armor EXCEPT the one you start out with..I feel like if I was part of the team that spent a lot of time on Ezio's character design/outfit I would be pretty mad that you do not even get to play in the nice silver armor (AC:B) or the culturally influenced AC2 robes. I"m playing Revelations and thought his gold looking Spaulder looked great and then "HI" it's the YOU MUST WEAR THIS PRIMITIVE LOOKING ARMOR mission comes back to haunt me.

Basically, it's obvious ppl have similar reasons for this, like difficulty reasons and preference. For me, I love the starting design you guys come up with. You advertise his new look everywhere, we get all excited to play looking like a badass, but then after 30 min or so of play time, you will never see those precious designs and details ever again haha. Just saying, if you give us the abilty to change armor, why not let us use the default? You spent months or years on creating it, let us use it please, you guys do a great job. (Fav. is AC B robes)

Edit: "IF I was part of the team..."

Been wanting that since AC2, Ezio looks so much more badass with no armor on at all! The Armor ubisoft designed for both brotherhood and revelations is bulky and hefty, assassin's shouldn't look like that! They're light weight and ninja http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I was going to start a new thread, but you just said EXACTLY what I was thinking, Jack-Da. I really prefer the starting skin of Ezio, without armor. I mean, Ubisoft spend the last months advertising this Ezio with this good looking armor, and we can't even have two sequences with it. Damn, we can't even have the Hookblade with this armor... It sucks. The whole game, I've been thinking :"WOW! This is the best game yet, the sounds are great, so does the story, BUT GOD DAMNIT, WHY CAN'T WE PLAY WITH THE ORIGINAL LOOK."

I've seen somewhere that they will not implement the un-equip armor for this Assassin's Creed (Even tough, fans have been asking this feature since Assassin's Creed II) but they could give us an outfit (Like the Desmond or Altair outfit). But nothing so far.

We must push forward and ask them to give us at least an outfit. And I know for A FACT, that this should not be trouble at ALL. I mean, the skin is already in the game, you've seen gameplay with this armor at almost any given point in the game (I've seen a scene, at the end of the campaign, where Ezio is wearing the starting armor). It's should only be programming stuff. I'm so desperate to play with this armor, that I would GLADLY PAY (Yes, I'll pay if it is necessary) for this feature. I'll pay for up to 30$ (I'm not exaggerating..., I really what) for this skin.

Please, Ubisoft, I ask you, we beg you, please, give us this good looking Ezio, it's the only thing that ruined the game for me (I mean, the entire length of the campaign I couldn't stop thinking about it). I've been I fan of this serie since the beginning, hell, even before that with the Prince of Persia serie. It will mean the world to me, and I'm sure, to a lot of people. Please...

It would be nice if someone FROM Ubisoft could comment about this. For the others, please, feel free to comment as well and give us your opinion. And I was thinking about making a new thread, but with a poll.

(Sorry if there is some grammar mistakes, I was under a very sentimental feeling, and English is not my primary language)

Yeah I am all for this - not only for aesthetic purposes but for the CHALLENGE.

Ubi could then throw in bonus achievements/trophies for completing missions where Ezio is forced to fight against large groups of enemies wearing no armor without dying.

I would want this for AC:R however, it could be easilly implemented into the Blacksmith?

Dang Right! Come on Ubisoft what the hell is wrong with you? How can this be so hard to listen to? Really?? This shouldn't even be a fricking DEBATE for you people, you should have thought about it yourselves by now the first time somebody ever brought it up!! I mean, WHY.THE.HELL.NOT?!?!

There are dozens of people like me who have some kind of dang obsession with having a specific style of armor or no armor at all on Ezio! I mean, I want it because I want to mimic what you people have been doing on the dang cover-art since Assassin's Creed II!!!! WHYYYY NOOOOOOOOOT?!

JUST.DO.IT.ALREADY.

Please Ubisoft, you should have done this since Brotherhood, I myself and dozens of your fans are severely disappointed with this, just how can you go so long not answering this childish request that is indeed most likely an easy task?

The only way this can even be done is by buying the armor set without the chest plate, but come on, we have to buy it and display it on our cement dummy SOMETIME you know?!

Please, fix this problem if you still can Ubi, we're counting on you. We adore your game and YOU

The closes answer we got was from Gabe, who stated that buying armor "helps" advance the story. They use it for new players to get familiar with the shops...
