Iââ¬m back from the igda meeting and guys I have some interesting news. Iââ¬m only going to mention the most important parts of the presentation because this was mainly for people working in the industry or thinking of working in the field.
No gameplay footage was shown... but donââ¬t worry, I will tell you when to expect gameplay footage on the internet in a minute.
Patrice and Jade demonstrated some amazing clips of the game engine. Clips showing off the free running, the climbing, the interaction with NPCs and the fighting.
In the first clip, Altair was shown interacting with the environment. I know you guys read how much freedom the game will have, but trust me... you donââ¬t know till you see it live. Itââ¬s crazy! You can go everywhere just like in real life. If thereââ¬s a crack on the wall Altair can laterally stick his fingers in the crack and use it to climb... AMAZING!!!!!!!!!
In the second clip, the climbing was showcased and againââ¬Â¦ AMAZING!!!!!!!! The character was shown going up and down buildings. The animations are ridiculously realistic. We never saw this in a game before.
In the third clip, interaction with NPCs was displayed... ah men, I wish you can see what I saw. The AI in the NPCs is remarkable, everything was showed... the pushing, the shoving etc.
The way the character maneuvers around the crowd is WOW just WOW.
In the last clip... FIGHT! They displayed couple of combat situation where the character was surrounded by guards. The blocking was also explained more into depth, but nothing you guys don't know.
I fortunately had the chance to ask a question, this was the question ââ¬Åknowing that the team has been working on AC since the Sands of Time... in terms of percentage, how much is doneââ¬Â. I got a quick 60% to 70% from Patrice.
Alright!!!! The very popular question will now be answered.
We can expect gameplay footage next week, after X06
Special thanks to JN006 for informing us about this meeting.
