Hi

Big fan of the Assassin's Creed series and very much looking forward to Brotherhood and then finally Assassin's Creed 3.
I have a quick question regarding the eagle vision.
I'm not sure i've missed something in the storyline but it doesn't explain much about Ezio having eagle vision or how he gets it. Has it got a storyline to it, or is it simply a gameplay mechanic to simplify the game?

Thanks Guys!

As far as we know, Eagle Vision is really Ezio's/Altair's gift of intuition, finding out the true intentions of the people around them. The Animus simply color-codes it to simplify it.

It's nothing supernatural. Just intuition. There's no real storyline to it http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

That can't be right seeing as Desmond has it, and he's not in the Animus. It's just a genetic thing, I guess. Occasionally it'll skip a generation or two. Three. Fifteen, maybe.

Does desmond not get EV from the bleeding effect?

a genetic skill possibly, also not completely human, it takes i little more than simple intuition to know if someone you've never met at a distance who can't see you, is hostile towards you. also bieng able to see fingerprints and blood. (i would love that ability)

its likely that desmond had the capability but due to genetic dilution, he forgot how to do it, so to speak.

and its also likely that only certain descendants can do it because they're 'special'.

i reckon those particular ones maybe kind of 'reincarnations' of adam maybe. they also share sort of 'destinies' so they all: encounter things related to TWCB, or save the world and even recieve a scar on their lips.

Subject 16 explains that the gift(Eagle Vision) they have is from those who came before.

And Desmond's Eagle Vision was dormant up until the bleeding effect occurred while he used the Animus.

Some of these posts are right. It can be speculated that Desmond and his ancestors are descendants of Adam and Eve. Notice how Adam and Eve were not affected by the powers of the Apple of Eden and same for Altair and Ezio. The only thing that effected them was paralysis, but not mind control or other abilities.

Also in "The Truth" video, we see Adam and Eve free running very well, which is identical to Desmond's ancestors.

Thanks for the replies guys.
Very interesting.
I suppose we'll find out hopefully in Assassin's Creed III. That game can't come out soon enough.

Desmond's lineage is Adam/Eve + Those Who Came Before

OR

Normal human + Those Who Came Before

It's Assassin's Creed 2.5: Brotherhood!!!!!! Stop getting it wrong ffs!

Assassin's Creed 3 means a different hero (ancestor)

I'm not talking about Brotherhood. I know thats a carry on from Ezio.
I'm talking about Assassin's Creed III, which will hopefully tie up the loose ends on the eagle vision and Desmond's story.

For now we don't know how will AC3 be.

It might be only Desmond.

After all, he is the true protagonist of the series.
