This deserves a thread of its own, I think it`ll be some sort of a tour in desmond`s mind and the tour guide will be subject 16, Remembering the Past and giving desmond insight on his future, and I believe that 16 will be the reason desmond wakes up from the coma,"Im with you till the end"

I think it will be a sort of platforming puzzle solving experience. Where you go to different locations (Rooms?) and inside there will be different puzzle, sort of like the glyphs and rifts but not always.
So slowly and surly (Room by room?) you start to become more part-mentalised.
Thats my thoughts on it at the moment.

I've always had the impression it will be portal esq with various bits of free running within massive puzzle rooms. Bits of thinking with (for example) code breaking breaking up the free running sequences. Do yeah, a bit like Portal in a Virtual Training style format (without the timers etc) that hold past bits of Desmond's life. I'm expecting lots of fragments flying around on random bits of blocks.

Whatever it is it should be fun

I think that it will be a puzzle like the time trials from brotherhood and once you've got to the end, desmond reaches a memory in his life and you view it (or maybe control desmond during it) http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

It's fairly obvious from the screenshots and the things people have written that we'll be going through memories and geometric shapes will be moving in and out of place for us to try and catch and not fall to death.

Thanks very much for posting this guys.

Definitely looks like a fun environment and concept if this holds true to what's going to appear in game

What are the buildings in the background? It seems a little odd for the "Black Room" to have a town or city within it. Any ideas?

What if desmonds looking into his memory in that screenshot the place with buildings could be the farm

I think Black room is like out of the map kind of place. I mean its Animus glitch or something. What do you think Desmond has to do in black room. Just climb like in the end of ACBs truth?

This sounds cool. Also, thinking that if Desmond becomes self aware (realizes hes in a coma), if he can go Matrix and realize there is no gravity and be able to freerun wherever? Would be a new kind of awesome.

Im visioning some kind of training-simulator from ACB where you need some fast freerunning skills along with some thinking, like pressing the correct switch and running to a door before it closes. Just cooler.

Is anyone else reminded of the weird maps from Mirrors Edge? Just a bit less... colourful

Maybe those buildings are the farm and desmonds looking into memory
