Hmmmmmm it's more accurate but I have to admit I grew fond of the previous design.

Now it's not Desmond's shirt. It's just a shirt with an eagle on it now...wow

Well now it looks like the one on Desmond's Hoodie instead of looking like the one on his shirt.

The thing that they changed it too looks nothing like the one on the Desmond in-game model. Look at the neck of the eagle. It looks totally different.

Both the shirts look different

on the game though, its the new one, the old shirt must have been just on the promo photos.

And you can see the Eagle (at least the wings since the backpack covers it) is the same too, the wings have the same design.

Reading the forums and the posts directly on the Ubi Workshop page got me thinking. Maybe it's just me but I'm just glad that they actually make ANY Assassin's Creed Brotherhood merchandise. I don't recall a lot of wearable AC merch when the previous games came out.

What I love about Ubi is that they care what the fans like. The fact that they wanted us to comment and vote to see which multiplayers would be getting hoodies and tees next is incredible. Or thanks to overwhelming requests that they will indeed make a Desmond Hoodie. How many videogame franchises do that? Now don't get me wrong, I understand that it's also good business. I mean it'd be dumb for them not to cash in on an idea like producing Desmond's Hoodie. But they could have said no or not bothered and I don't think a lot of people realize that. I mean a child could beg and beg and beg their parent for a brand new toy and while the parent loves the child it does not mean they're obligated to buy them that toy.

So a mistake was made in the design department. *shrug* It happens and they offered immediate refunds as well as emails of apologies. I agree with Johno_efc in that the promotional designs were used mistakingly and not the final ones.

What I can't understand on the Ubi comments boards is all the hostility about the change. Ubi is trying to provide a product that is authentic and true to the game based on the very people who designed it. Bottom line, they're trying to give their fans what they want and the best and I applaud them for all their hard work and generosity and thank them for my ability to wear my AC:B pride!

I don't think the promo ones would have been used accidentally, with stuff like this when you release things before they actually come out they're subject to change.

Who knows.

I was happy when they announced they were looking into making the hoody, as that would be the one thing I'd look at buying, as it's pretty rad that hoody.

That's true and sorry if I misquoted you earlier but you do bring up a good point about being subject to change. Heck if they add prices and participation may vary Ubi might have a commercial http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

And I completely agree about the hoodie. I am a hoodie fiend. I managed to find a promo hoodie from the original AC on eBay. So I'm mixing that up with the Abstergo one till they release Desmond's which will hopefully be soon.

I for one can say, categorically, that if the shirt I receive displays the new eagle design (as opposed to the one I actually ordered), I'll be looking for a refund.

Looks like your getting a refund then...

"or those of you who bought the t-shirt, if you donít like the new design we will refund your purchase as soon as you request it by contacting ubiworkshop@ubisoft.com."

No, the new design looks completely different than Desmond's actual T-shirt. The first design was pretty much an exact replica!

EDIT: Seems you were right, never noticed that they changed the design for the final game. Kind of sad, the old one looked better.

What I can't understand on the Ubi comments boards is all the hostility about the change. Ubi is trying to provide a product that is authentic and true to the game based on the very people who designed it.

Umm it's not true to the game. It's completely different than the shirt Desmond actually wears

Look in the videos, play the game, you can quite clearly see that the eagle faces completely the opposite way to the first one they designed, I haven't got AC2 to play, but I'm guessing they changed the shirt from 2 to Brotherhood.

While I can understand some people are not happy - I myself think the new design shown is a closer match to the game - The Forums should not be used to post hate about the designers..

If people want to complain, please do so directly to the Ubiworkshop via the details in your pre-order email or failing that, Ubisoft Support.

This is not to say you do not have a right to complain, just you need to do it correctly.

Look it does suck....I just wanna know why they changed the design "In-game" then. The original design(t-shirt and in-game) were way better. I'm still getting the red and white due to my fanboy status but i think the original design was WAAAAYYYY better. I would just like a concise reason as to why the design was changed...especially AFTER they put the original up for pre-order. I dunno it just really bugs me. I REALLY like the first design and this new one is just kinda MEH. Especially the Assassin's symbol in the new design compared to the old one. In the old one it at least resembled the assassin logo, in this one it looks like a loose interpretation made with ink blots. Theres my rant....PLEASE MAKE DESMONDS HOODIE SOON!! Donka

Actually, in AC 1 and AC 2, Desmond is just wearing a plain gray hoodie (you can't even see what he was wearing under the hoodie) with blue jeans. The white Assassin hoodie with eagle shirt are exclusive to Brotherhood.

It's not the same. The wings are the ones from the original shirt.

If you look here you can see better quality pictures: http://ubiworkshop.myshopify.c...nt-update-the-return (http://ubiworkshop.myshopify.com/blogs/news/2538252-important-update-the-return)

The wings in that aren't straight, and if you look at the bottom of the assassin symbol (in the second picture, above the zipper on the left hand side) you can see the the feather parts aren't connected to the wing like they are in the shirt that Ubiworkshop is selling.

I'm not making a big deal out of it, I think both designs are cool but either way, they aren't exactly like the one in the game.

If you look closely,the new design is the embriodered design on the back of Desmond's hoodie, they should release both as they are in game.

I'm mostly disappointed because the eagle head looked better in the original design. In the "official" one it looks more like a phoenix which doesn't really fit the game as it's supposed to be an eagle. Is it just me that feels this way?

That's stupid, I paid for the other shirt. That's not cool that they just change it after people having paid for the previous design!!!!
