wow now im confused, wasn't water the most deadly thing in AC
EDIT: This is either old artwork that's accidentally been put in or Altair is going to show in some kind of cutscene.
personally i think they just put it their because the guy is talking about how Altair was always stumped by water. Although seeing that makes me think that maybe they were going to make Altair swim but changed their minds!

Yes, it's a photoshop of the concept art. And no doubt you'll be able to play as him. I can't think of any reason why not! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

You could be right..

It looks a bit like he is missing the ring finger.
And it looks like Altair┤s clothes.
Holy.. I think your right O_O.

Awesome!

I doubt we will play as Altair in AC2. The closest thing to a prologue to that game will probably be a part of the game where we play Ezio before he becomes an assassin. If you count Bloodlines as a prologue to AC2 then I guess that's somewhat right. But I personally see Bloodlines as an epilogue to AC1.

I've come up with only two possibilities:

1) Altair took some swimming lessons at the local YMAA (Young Men's Assassin Association)
2) It's shallow, swamp water...

No. 1 made me lol and No.2 seemed very likely because not even Altair could drown in shallow water http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_razz.gif

IT does appear as if he's standing up, not treading water.

It's a fake Altair, the real one has his hidden blade on his left hand.

Who knows, we may unlock a altair costume when we complete the game or collect all of the hidden objects (flags)

Isn't his voice actor hired for this game though?

Fake picture regardless, but I swear his voice actor was cast.

Why would you be able to play as him? From all the demos I've seen Ezio is way better and Altair sucks compared to him. I think Ubisoft is trying to get away from Altair because of him limitations both in character and his game (AC1).

No, Altair didn't drown, he just had a phobia of water which made blank out the memories.

Also, the blade is on the wrong side, this is just photoshop, showing how awesome it could have been.

What would Altair be doing in the canals of Venice anyway? Fishing Assassin-style?

The evidence against it being Altair has overwhelmed the chances of it being him.

I doubt Altair will become a playable character as it would alter the gameplay and it would just be wrong.

Altair was an enjoyable character but lacked the in depth background that Ezio has. I know there wouldn't be much to say about him but this is a new era and a new game. Altair should be mentioned though, no one would be able to get rid of him for good.

are we are also dismissing the fact that Ezio when he starts out could wear the same clothes as altair had with them evolving into what we see in the game videos during the tutorial/opener bit.

Lol Ezio starts with this costume:

You can see him for the first time wearing it in the last trailer that released from TGS ... So there is no way that Ezio has only a "white" robe...
