Ok well i really liked the idea, They looked cool, they were VERY usefull ( stopped having to rip down annoying posters) and an awesome addition to the franchise but they should make it more customizable ( we couldn't change it while wearing the armour of brutus)

so what do you think ( and how would you improve it

I don't mind, the effects were cool but maybe we won't even need them. I think they have a new system in ACR which has something to do with Assassin Dens. In any case, I think the notorious system needed an overhaul anyways.

I don't really mind, but I would like it if he didn't have the cape this time round.

But I'm loving how the notorious system is working now, it makes you plan your kills otherwise you're going to have more work on your hands to protect the Assassin's Dens.

capes are fine as long as they arent used as rewards for collecting a load of random boring stuff

capes should have a more practical use, for example as you obtain more and more weapons, they're goona make you look really suspicious carrying all those weapons so a cape would cover the weapons up and stop guards gettin g suspicious

they look good but didn't really care about effect actually it isnt very useful because if you don't want notoriety just remove wanted posted time to time it was more cosmetic then useful

I kind of like the cape, I think it looks cool and if you look at the one art pic of him standing in front of constantinople and you see him from behind you can clearly see he still has the cape. I think you might just be able to take it off in this game or maybe you get it later in the game.

The capes seemed absolutely pointless in brotherhood, since you're only in one boring city for the whole game!

I personally liked the look of the cape. I didn't really see any benefit in ACB though. I think it should be more of an option than something you are obligated to wear. Staying in one city kind of defeated the purpose of some of the capes.

Well, from the looks of it, there will not be any capes. I didn't mind the capes, but I can definitely live without them. Besides, it wouldn't fit too well with the awesome new outfit, if you ask me.

NuclearFuss

I reckon the cape suited Ezio in AC2. In Brotherhood it looked ridiculous with the longer outfit. Now Ezio looks awesome again. And the features were pretty pointless.

To be honest, I wouldn't mind capes making an appearance in ACR. Having the freedom to choose what you want to wear while you're walking around like a G is always welcome in my book. But of course, it should be detachable. I don't want it being like the armor in AC2 and ACB where they force you to wear it once you buy it. That's just stupid.

I wouldn't mind capes making an appearance in ACR as I said, but if they are in there they should be highly customizable and numerous in kind as well as detachable.

05-31-2011, 11:33 AM
I wouldnt mind on capes but absolutely detachable now.

Though in the teaser trailer when Ezio is walking I swear I saw a red and white cape on him.But not much anywhere else.I think that this means

A.You can buy one and detatch it

B.We all know about Ubisoft never being able to decide one look until retail.So we might be stuck again.

EDIT!- Just looked around the screen shot thread and on the box coverit has a cape somewhat visible on Ezio's back which is white and red.Also visible in concept art.A legit cape to not the shoulder one.So either it's detachable or ubisoft hasnt gotten around to putting it on Ezio yet.

No.

The capes to me looked... terrible. Well, I mean, not TERRIBLE, but I didn't like them at all.

When I think of an Assassin, I think of someone like Altair. Ezio's robes were to 'elegant' in II... and the cape made it seem like Batman in Renaissance.

Point is, I think the cape looked goofy and ridiculous. I think Ubi went TO far on that particular attire.

If we pay attention to the E3 trailer, ezio has the cape until he gets shot with an arrow. he then drops the arrow AND the cape simultaneously. that tells us that it is likely optional to have a cape on at all. perhaps the option to have your hood off is in the air?

I would like the option to have a cape, but the effect would be contradictory to the story wouldn't it?

You are going to be in a templar controlled city, I don't think they would give you any kind of notoriety immunity, we aren't in venice anymore :P

Sometimes i'd get a new suit in brotherhood, and really want the option to not have the cape. Some suit colors were just plain badass then this lumpy pointy looking blob called a cape, swooshes back over, covering everything awesome about what you got on. Like the Ebony suit on the east side, or the Roman stone (kinda like revelations colors) owned by the blob of death known as the cape. I did like when you ran it would stay behind you, but get on a horse and wtf... This does not usually bother me if the game is great like these games, but that looks so ridiculous the way it stays frozen still. Why am i even writing a page about a cape? damn you people who realized and brought this up!!!

Cape is getting old, and contrived. Glad its gone, was cool while it was there.

Sporkfighter
06-19-2011, 03:42 PM
It's kind of nice not having the capes in Revelations it is more Altair-y and I feel like it fits Ezio as an older man. I think the best idea would to make capes optional and have a few different types of robes for Ezio to wear that we could still use and see armore with, basically outfits that weren't just skins.

Is it really confirmed that there are no capes? Or are we just making an assumption based off of the trailer.

I hope they are gone/optional, however I'd rather have it a fact that we don't have capes rather than an obscure bit of information based off of a CG Trailer.

It hasn't been confirmed per se but in the game play demo Ezio didn't have a cape and that gameplay was supposed to be from half way through the story mode so no capes according to the demo but you are right, that still isn't much confirmation.

I agree with you about the medici and ventetian capes killing ezio's looks, but I thought that the Auditore cape in ACB made him look even cooler.

Admittedly I liked the cape for purely cosmetic reasons only. Its part of Ezio's look, he would just look under-dressed without it.

I am hoping there will be better customisation options in ACR with the ability to add or remove the cape/fur as preferred...

I thought the capes were unique in AC2. It brought more of a Renaissance feel to the outfit.
In ACB... the whole attire was out of place and Ezio stuck out like a sore thumb.

swiftkinfe
07-03-2011, 04:32 PM
From the looks of the Gamestop edition and Animus Edittion having the armor of Brutus.We will have a cape on the outfit as one was on it in ACB.So since Brutus has a cape seems safe to say an animation for it would be made.So I wouldnt be supprised if you could buy a cape from a tailor.Now removable is another question.

The capes are way too Italian for a game based in Constantinople. Not to mention it really doesn't suit Ezio as much in his old age.

08-17-2011, 06:25 PM
Has anyone here ever watched The Incredibles?

I noticed that Ezio used to walk normally in AC2 before he got his father's Assassin robes. Now he walks and runs like the cops are after him (ironic, right?). I always thought that had to do with his cape covering almost all of his left torso. But maybe not, since Altair moves the same way and so does Ezio in Revelations, according to the trailers and gameplay.

Awesome. I thought the cape was perfect in ACII, Ezio didn't stand out as everyone had a cape or cloak, like it was in those times. I think it makes the game more realistic, even in ACB, simply for the fact it conceals his primary hidden blade, short blade, and much of his sword. You can't walk around showing everyone your weapons, unless you were/are a part of the military or a guard/cop, back then or today, in any civilized place. It causes attention, people will notice that you are armed LOL! I always thought it was so ridiculous and unrealistic that Altair would just go from city to city with all of his weapons showing and no one noticed, not even guards or his targets when he walked right by them! Leave the cape, make it optional for those that want to play unrealistically.

Well, actually it's quite easy to walk around with weapons and such without people on the streets noticing. Humans aren't really programmed for monitoring, so they tend to miss such things, even if they seem so obvious to the people that know what's going on.

Okay you go strap an AK to your back, a pistol on your hip, and a knife to your leg and walk around a mall or something and see how that works LOL, I bet you would wish you had a trench coat in five seconds! Haha All I'm saying is back then and today, you must conceal your weapons in real life. Even the senators that stabbed Caesar had to hide their blades from the guards.

Actually, in the renaissance it was common to walk around with your sword and rapier visible, since there were so many thugs and crazy fights that went on in even the most "civilized" cities. And crossbows were often used for hunting. So Ezio in his new outfit just looks like a grizzled old hunter who's ready to defend himself. Totally normal for a person of the time.

His cape covered too much of his body, hiding th cool parts of his outfit from us, as well as the fact that the cape has never animated as well as real life cloth, making it look a bit blobby and out of place. It was cool to have it for two games, but one more time and I'd start to wonder why Ezio keeps visiting the same tailor.

TexasCreed
08-19-2011, 12:22 PM
True it always has looked funny while running or on horseback. But the cool parts of his outfit? Come on! It was a little cape, and personally I felt the less I had to look at the Brutus Armour, the better! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif That might be true for some cities but in reality it was illegal for most European people to even own weapons, though many still did of course, for fear of revolts and what have you. Some people who don't study history really think everyone in ancient times just walked around with swords out like guns in the old west, this is simply not true. The truth is a sword was not only costly, but possibly illegal depending on where you were and few of the people had them as they shown even in AC. More common for common folk or thugs was a knife or a bow, with no armor.

Calvarok
08-19-2011, 12:24 PM
To the above post: That's another interesting thing, the reason they didn't include a cape might have been related to the new notoriety system, which means that it works a lot different from the old one if you can't keep it from ever increasing with the cape.

TexasCreed
08-19-2011, 12:41 PM
I'm guessing that too, I could care less about a stupid cape compared to an awesome game. Let's face it, the cape was going away sooner or later, it just wasn't fashionable after this time period really unless you were Napolean or some sort of weirdo just asking to get messed with Lol!

I think noble people were able to wear weapons with them,also Ezios family was considered noble and his father was also a banker.(eventought we know that they arenīt real nobles actualy,read the plates in the Auditore family crypt in AC2)

Calvarok
08-19-2011, 01:12 PM
Exactly. Ezios outfits always look like you could plausibly mistake him for soemthing else. in AC2: a noble. In ACB: a cardinal. In ACR: a hunter.

Constantinople at that time was very dangerous because of the Byzantine resistance, quite a few more people would carry weapons. Ezio walks like he's meant to be carrying weapons, so no-one questions him unless the memory of his appearance is fresh in the guard's mind. And in crowds, you would be surprised how easy it is to carry weapons without people noticing, expecially if crowds are used to seeing armed and purposeful people walking around.
