I€m back from the igda meeting and guys I have some interesting news. I€m only going to mention the most important parts of the presentation because this was mainly for people working in the industry or thinking of working in the field.

No gameplay footage was shown... but don€t worry, I will tell you when to expect gameplay footage on the internet in a minute.

Patrice and Jade demonstrated some amazing clips of the game engine. Clips showing off the free running, the climbing, the interaction with NPCs and the fighting.

In the first clip, Altair was shown interacting with the environment. I know you guys read how much freedom the game will have, but trust me... you don€t know till you see it live. It€s crazy! You can go everywhere just like in real life. If there€s a crack on the wall Altair can laterally stick his fingers in the crack and use it to climb... AMAZING!!!!!!!!!

In the second clip, the climbing was showcased and again€¦ AMAZING!!!!!!!! The character was shown going up and down buildings. The animations are ridiculously realistic. We never saw this in a game before.

In the third clip, interaction with NPCs was displayed... ah men, I wish you can see what I saw. The AI in the NPCs is remarkable, everything was showed... the pushing, the shoving etc.
The way the character maneuvers around the crowd is WOW just WOW.

In the last clip... FIGHT! They displayed couple of combat situation where the character was surrounded by guards. The blocking was also explained more into depth, but nothing you guys don't know.

I fortunately had the chance to ask a question, this was the question €œknowing that the team has been working on AC since the Sands of Time... in terms of percentage, how much is done€. I got a quick 60% to 70% from Patrice.

Alright!!!! The very popular question will now be answered.

We can expect gameplay footage next week, after X06 http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/88.gif

Special thanks to JN006 for informing us about this meeting.

Damn your quick boy! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/typing.gif
You're more than welcome! I now know who you are http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/mockface.gif You're "last question" boy! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Have you sticked around after the pres? I had to go, I didn't stayed very long! I took a beer or two with the crew and left. That's so funny how Jade avoided your question, as well as the "X360 VS PS3 exclusivity question". It's all about conspiracy man http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/icon_twisted.gif Let's just say one thing... This guy got balls!

I was disapointed to see that nothing was really shown. If this got you all excited... man trust me, you'll LOVE this game.

Cheers!

EDIT: Some of the videos shown, were old videos from GDC 8 months ago. At the time, they had not yet released Altair's design so it's another character performing.

Hey Legendary_111, how'd you liked our Ghost? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

I had to come home and post this for all the people who have a great interest for this game, just like I do.

I didn€t stay... I left right after Patrice and Jade left the stage.

You should be proud working on this project. You guys are remodeling gaming as we know it.

My hat goes to you and your team.

Thanks! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

It was not the actual game, it was a pc presentation.

yeah, no specific date yet, they're saying quarter 1 '07 (within the first 3 months of 2007) but this is Ubisoft, it'll be delayed until at least this time next year...
