So i was thinking about the very first trailer


(ya know, the one on the main website)

and now that we are so close to it

and it got me thinking..how great i thought it was when i first found out about it

so my question is, how did you come across the trailer, or even ac itself, but im on about the trailer lol

did you think wow..or yea great..just another game (but you wouldn't cause you wouldn't be here XD)

It was one of those moments where you feel like your chest will burst from pure happiness. More than a year later, today, I was chanting "only 7 days" so much that my friend had to slap me http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_razz.gif

Ha! So true. I first saw that trailer at E3 '06. My reaction was, "OMG! A historical video game. How original. I must get it." I just love history and although this game is based on a fictional assassin, it takes place in a real era http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

I found out about AC by seeing a cool looking armor set based off the game for TES Oblivion. Everyone in the thread was singing praises to the game and saying it was cool so i checked it out to see what the fuss was about. Needless to say i was REALLY surprised. Since then i've kept an eye on the game. I now have it preordered along with the limited edition strat guide.

The very first was an off-screen video taken by IGN, showing individual rings in a soldier's chainmail and some cogs whirring, although it was unclear of exactly what it was at the time.

I've been begging for a game like this since POP, when a trailer finally came out from the dark, i could'nt keep myself together!! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/35.gif

http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif It's really weird too cuz one night i was thinking about a next-gen game similar to POP, but with a more in-depth system on freerunning and combat, and also with a stealth element like POP:TTT ( And of course next-gen eyebleeding graphics and visuals), then the next day... AC's announcement!! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

To this day, when it comes to AC, it is by far my favorite trailer still.

Short as hell no doubt, but the setting and the way it was narrated... Pure awesomeness IMHO.

i remember the first time i heard about it was in an issue of gameinformer- june 06
the first part was played out in the first trailer on the website. when i read it i was like man this is gonna be a great game, then i went home and saw the trailer and i was like....holy **** i gotta get this game.

I found out about Assassin's Creed after Adonihs on deviantart (He did this awesome Assassin's Creed fanart (http://adonihs.deviantart.com/art/Assassin-s-Creed-Altair-40466918)... >_o everyone seems to kidnap his picture for Assassin's Creed sigs and icons at 1191ad...) posted a journal about how he was tired of effeminate ninja assassins or something to that effect and then go see this guy who is awesome! And then gave a link to the Assassin's Creed website.

I've been following Assassin's Creed since then... the trailer was so freaking awesome... er, it still is awesome.
