Ubisoft sure knows how to make great trailers.

Regarding the Templars though, even AC1 story trailer paints the targets as monsters who have to be destroyed and shows just their most vile acts, so I'll not judge them until will play the game itself.

Well the bad guy shooting his henchman who disturbs him is not AC1 level Templar material. That's classic comic book behavior. Well it's Majd Addin, I mean all of these Templars are cut with that same cloth I guess. Since the game wants to be more like AC2, that means Templars who are just as over-the-top moustache twirling caricatures. That's not bad if you have a good supporting cast and leads. Unity had a bad set of Templars but it failed because the hero was a total dud.

You know the way they introduce all those Templars is a lot like those cool videos before each target mission in AC2. I have a feeling that's making a comeback, which would be great, I always those videos.

I think the real story of Syndicate isn't about hunting these Templars or maybe I am making a mistake of again giving Ubisoft credit, but for me the true mystery has to be the Sage, unless of course Syndicate has nothing to do with it.

What I'm saying is that AC1 story trailer didn't really suggest any kind of gray area with the Templars. The targets are directly called plague-bringers, war mongerers, the power of which corrupts the land, and we're shown acts like Tamir killing a guy in cold blood and Garnier telling to break both legs of a captive man.

That's not really a better depiction than what we have here. Context means a lot. That's the trickery of trailers, they always play with context.

Wow, a lot of interesting stuff happening in this trailer. Surprised about them revealing most of the Templars so early on. Two scenes that particularly got my attention is at 1.37 (does she get targeted because of Jacob and Evie, hope nothing bad happens to her by the end) and 2.01 (as expected, but suggests there going to be a split between Jacob and Evie - they sound really bitter to each other :eek:).

The Templars are usually not the mystery. The one exception is AC3 I guess, where it really was a mystery (revelations to some extent, since we didn't know who the Grandmaster was). But otherwise its what-you-see-what-you-get. Black Flag's promotion showed all the Templars in the game after all.

And UNITY revealed most of the Templar targets, even the fact that Robespierre was one, which you would think was a spoiler since it immediately told you what kind of trash Unity was selling. The key mystery are the Sages, and even in Unity they ruined it by saying "Random jeweller is a sage".


What I'm saying is that AC1 story trailer didn't really suggest any kind of gray area with the Templars. The targets are directly called plague-bringers, war mongerers, the power of which corrupts the land, and we're shown acts like Tamir killing a guy in cold blood and Garnier telling to break both legs of a captive man.

That is true I guess. But the games have fallen far from AC1's greatness or the misdirecting trailers of earlier games.

Perhaps. About the only targets who could be ambiguous is David Brewster. The trailers say he was a mad scientist but historically (yeah he was a real guy, died in February 1868) that guy was a brilliant physicist and a pioneer in optics, the only bad thing he did was oppose Darwin because of his Christian beliefs. The trailers say he's a "mad scientist" for some reason.

The other historical figures are John Elliotson (died July 1868) who was a friend of D-ckens but pioneered crackpot pseudoscience like mesmerism and phrenology. Most interesting is James Brudenell, who readers of Flashman novels might recognize. Brudenell (died March 1868) was the guy who led the mythical Charge of the Light Brigade) has some good and bad in him certainly.

The rest are fictional. I think Maxwell Roth is Jacob's personal Arch Enemy and he looks like a Moriarty type.

karl marx is the true villain, a crazed atheist man trying to undermine the righteous imperialistic fabric of victorian society

the post-credits scene will feature his dead body regenerating into his new incarnation - Jack the Ripper, who is hunting prostitutes in order to prevent the birth of the new messiah who shall lead britain into her golden age whose arrival has been prophesied as told by the biblical book of the zadkiel in which the symbolism of red coats falling before a near-white figure in both the golden age of piracy and the american revolution foretold times of upheaval and social change in England. Naturally the upper class won't stand for this and the jack the ripper dlc will focus on US President Grover Cleveland (replacing Jacob) and Evie with the aid of their new mentor Napoleon III teaming up to stop Jack the Ripper and his benefactors - the Royal Family

Well not Haytham, not Black Bart and not Germain (though we do get a brief glimpse of him in Unity's Story trailer) and also Ahmet in Revelations. But generall yes as a rule, they do tell you who the Templars are. Governor Torres was announced as Grand Master in Black Flag from the beginning and he's the final boss (even if he's not the true antagonist which is the Sage).

Of course the game might avert it, there are 7 Templars + 1 (Starrick) = 8, so one more is needed to round it to 9, the favorite number of AC targets, going back to AC1 (though AC1, in fact 10 Targets).


...notice the total lack of mention of Karl Marx that will be in the game certainly...

Well this story trailer focuses solely on Templars. You don't have the historical gang (Darwin, D-ckens and others) who are revealed elsewhere.

Thorne is suspiciously absent from that number and list, even though we know she's a main target due to Evie's walkthrough (and she was also present in the story trailer). I guess she's the 9th.

Though, 9 is not such a magical number in the AC series. Like, we have to kill 9+1 in AC1, but there's about 14 or so in AC2 (not counting Savonorola's lieutanaints), 7 or so in AC3, 10 or so in AC4, and I think in ACU it was 9-ish as well? (main targets only)

I will love if Marx being a villain you will be crazy hahaha...

We will have a Sage and Eve in the same game ? very interesting...

I already suspect that,remember that brotherhood glyph that says TV mimics Apple of Eden effect ? Marx also wrote a book that mimics Apple effects...

If we measure targets in terms of afterlife chat/flashback montage, and also in terms of whether they are single targets or part of a group.

AC1 has 9+1=10

AC2 has 9 Single Targets and again you don't actually kill Rodrigo so it's 8. It cheats heavily by adding in groups like the 4+1 Pazzi Conspirators (Jacopo killed in cutscene). Add DLC, you get Forli (Orsi Bros), Savonarola's Lieutenants (9+1). So totally it's 8(Single)+1(Rodrigo Spared) + 4(Group Pazzi) + 1(Jacopo Cutscene) + 2(Group Orsi) + 9(Group Savonarola) + 1(Savonarola Cutscene) = 26

BROTHERHOOD - 4 Targets (with Michelleto Spared mind you) + 2 Templar Agents In Game (Malfatto, Silvestro) + 6 Templar Agents Sidemissions + 1 Hermeticist from DLC + 1 Cardinal from Copernicus DLC = 14

REVELATIONS - 1(Leandros-Opening Mission Templar) + 1 Vali Cel Tradat(Templar Side Mission in Main Game) + 1 (Tarik Barleti-Mistaken Assassination) + 2 Templars + 1 (Killed by Proxy in Side Mission) + 6 (Templar Side Missions) + 2(Altair missions) = 14

AC3 has well Braddock for Haytham (1), Connor has 6 Targets + 1(Kanento;kon) by accident, then you have Naval Mission target (Biddle), so main game is 1+6+1+1=9 precisely. Add DLC and you get three Alternate Universe extras, taking it to 12.

BLACK FLAG has 4 Templars + 3 Pirates + 1 Civilian (Laurens Prins) + 4 from Templar Hunt= 12, technically 10 since Woodes Rogers and Charles Vane don't actually die.

UNITY has 8 in the main game, add the 1 in the DLC and you get 9 exactly.

ROGUE has 3 Templars + 1 Assassin Ally (Le Chasseur) + 5 Assassins + 1 (Charles Dorian Special Memory) = 10

Mathematically speaking 107 targets across 8 Console titles amounts to an Average of 13.375 targets per game, including main missions/side missions/DLC.

But if you take a rough average, and focus on story targets, the number amounts to 9.

EDIT: Forgot to add assassinations from Revelations Altair Missions. Have amended figures to 107 Targets with average of 13.375.

Farlander1991
09-24-2015, 10:37 PM
If we measure targets in terms of afterlife chat/flashback montage, and also in terms of whether they are single targets or part of a group.

To be honest, your counting is a bit arbitrary, for example you count side mission assassinations for some games, but then don't count people like the Templar captain and the taxman that were assassinated in AC3 (and also no side assassinations for AC1, though those were more like contracts) and you also totally miss out on all Venitian targets in AC2 (and other targets like the butcher templar agent we kill in Seq2 in ACB, you seem to count every other templar agent but not him), and then you seem to count only targets with white rooms but for Rogue you also count a target without white room (also Charles Lee doesn't have a white room now that I think about it). That whole system is too confusing.

It can be much straightforward. What do all AC1 targets have in common? They have a name, they're important/relevant to the plot and its progression, and we have a mission where we go to specifically assassinate them or have a boss battle/smth with them. So let's count it like that (even if we don't kill them). I'll also don't count, for simplicity's sake, any side-missions and DLCs, with exception of AC2 DLC because those are missing sequences (though will count without them as well)

AC1: 9 Templars + Al Mualim, already established.
AC2: Uberto, Vieri, Francesco, 4 Pazzi Conspirators, Jacopo, Emilio Barbarigo, Carlo Grimaldi, Marco Barbarigo, Dante Moro + Silvio Barbarigo, Rodrigo Borgia, so that's 14 in the main game + 3 in the DLC - Savonarola and two Orsi Brothers. So that's 17 in total. I think we can say that AC2 DLC is very important because it's chunks missing from the original (they're sequences 12 and 13 of a game that jumped from 11 to 14 originally). But even without those, it's still 14 targets.
Brotherhood: Cesare, The Banker, Baron, Micheletto. 4 targets.
Revelations: Leandros, Tarik, Shakhulu, Paleologos, Ahmet, Abbas - 6 targets
AC3: Braddock, Johnson, Pitcairn, Hickey, Church, Haytham, Charles Lee - 7 targets.
AC4: Du Casse, Prins, Commodore, Vane, Burgess + Cockram, Hornigold, Woodes Rogers, Roberts, El Tiburon, Torres - 11 targets
ACU: Sivert, King of Beggars, Lafraniere, Bellec, Rouille, Levesque, Le Peletier, La Touche, Germain - 9 targets (I don't count Robespierre here as we didn't really intend to assassinate him)
ACRo: 3 Templars, Le Chasseur, Kesegowase, Adewale, Hope, Chevalier, Liam - 9 targets

Ironically enough, 9 is still the actual average number, lol (i.e. if we add all up and then divide). Though out of 8 games only 2 have 9 targets (Unity and Rogue).

I'm liking the trailers as of late. Feels like a return to form, as I haven't much cared for Ubi's trailers for the past couple of years. The villains definitely remind me of Borgia levels of moustache-twirling, but to me that's part of the over-the-top light-heartedness of the whole trailer. It might all be misdirection, of course, but bear in mind some Victorian businessmen really were almost cartoonishly greedy and merciless. Scrooge in "A Christmas Carol" really wasn't much of a parody of the reality.

The scary thing about this trailer is that I've used pretty similar lines in my Syndicate fanfiction (completed a month ago). I wonder if my fanfic's ending will be similar to what Ubi has in mind... if so... I'm very very excited for it : )

Pretty cool trailer. With this trailer, I feel the game will be an upbeat and fun game, but will take a dark turn near the end of the story. I'm actually wondering if the twins get themselves into a real tight situation, and Jacob sacrifices himself to save Evie's life.

The commentary sounded odd to me ... anyone else get this vibe?
... So did the awkward one-liners.

Don't get me started on the accents ...;)


But besides the odd commentary I knew all this before.
What really let me down about the trailers is that it looked almost like a graphics downgrade.

What was really noticeable for me was the facial expressions of characters. <---- Did anyone else notice this?:confused:

I've been busy the last couple of weeks so I haven't really been following Syndicate for a while, But I'm sure in the demos and previous trailers looked better than this.:mad:

Their faces just seem more fixed almost... and I'm sure it didn't look like that in early trailer/demos.

You sum it precisely, It definitely felt more like a distraction to me.
Even more so as I wasn't expecting it, as earlier trailers and demos had me hyped about the graphics.

I dare say it, that trailer had be yearning for .... Pre-rendered cutscenes.....;)

Jokes aside its a let down...

I agree, after a game like Unity a downgrade in graphics is stark and obvious.

I feel like I can already see the controversy that the newest AC looks graphically worse than the last...

I don't understand they UBI is going backwards as appose to forwards...

Read my previous comment in regards to Unity, please. Thanks.

Lol, do you even go here? Bitebug has never been one to mince words about the flaws in AC games. And frankly, volunteering could be as simple as having enough spare time and getting sick of seeing too many spam posts cluttering up the forums. Not that I'm questioning his motives, just saying I've never seen him act biased.

So anyway... The plot is neat. Jacob seems less annoyingly shallow than he did during the reveal.

I was approached by the then CM who was running the forums on his own but I never volunteered prior to that - I had only just joined the forums.

The Ubisoft community was very different back then, and Assassin's Creed didn't even exist.

Loyal - perhaps -- but there have been things which irked me over the years to which I have expressed myself many times, i.e. BG&E2 I've been VERY vocal about it.

I have.



ANYWAY back on topic please.

There are many other threads where people can discuss their likes/dislikes about the graphics and what have you - use those instead

Thanks

You haven't been here long enough...

BiteBug is critical about a lot of stuff in AC, he/she speaks their mind very often.

"Henry took it for research. I am confident that the vault is ours."


Could it mean a first civ vault?

Yah its POE Shroud of Eden My guess is that it will revive Desmond so there will be 3rd person game play I guess

If so, I just hope Desmond will not look like a zombie. These days every game I first want to play have monsters in and when I discover it I don't want to play it anymore, because I hate monsters games.

Please ubisoft don't transform assassin's creed in another stupid monster game. :(

Reviving a character people dislike is dumb. They should start with someone new.

I don't dislike Desmond. In fact he is in my top 2 of the Assassins I prefer with Connor in my top 1. ^-^

They could introduced Desmond's brother (voiced by Troy Baker) that by coincidence was never mentioned until now.

Assassin's Creed: Fight of Assassins

Desmond Miles was old and died before and his brother Danny Miles had to do things now for the world. Danny Miles growed up with Desmond Miles and helped him beat templars but now Desmond Miles was not there anymore and only Danny Miles was.

"Desmond Miles what happens when you die" Danny Miles asked Desmond Miles one time.

"It will be you left to beat the bad guys in the world and do what needs to be done." Desmond Miles said to Danny Miles then he died later.

Danny Miles got a call from Rebecca and Shaun and Rebecca said "Danny Miles Templars are fighting in America and you have to go there to fight them" so Danny Miles said "Rebecca and Shaun you were Desmond Miles friend and i want you to be my friends so i will fight Templars too" so he left to America to fight Templars.

I apply to be the modern day protagonist, I can use my Capoeira skills to beat Templars and my sarcastic remarks to lighten the mood, I'm also a pro at cooking spaghetti.
