i just noticed that you might not have a horse that you personally own
because look at this screen on the offical site
http://assassinscreed.uk.ubi.com/

and now the one from the game informer issue
http://www.ps3-live.com/diapo.php?i=5&id=85&cat=jeux

so this possibly mean that you can take any random horse around the place or even that you get a new horse after leaving the old one or if the old one dies or something along those lines

please leave comments and opions

Mabey GI only got their hands on the demo, and the official pic is also from the demo. I'm sure you can take any horse any time.

Well, we'd be in town most of the time anyway and even if we did own a horse the guards would confiscate it.

i'm curious about the missions we'll have out in the holy land. theres supposedly a forest area where we'll have assassination missions, and a desert area as well, not to mention the assassin's hideout. i wonder if we'll go there to get missions or something...

There's a hideout in every part of the city, according to GI. I haven't seen any mention of a forest/desert area outside the city though. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif

maybe at the start of the mission you have to ride into the town/village of where your hit using the horce?. or maybe you could use it as a destraction, for instance if you think you can't get passed the gaurds you can set the horce off into the croud the creat mass panic. so the gaurds will be confused with all the panic giving you the time to sneek past.

ubi have loads of time to think about the options to do with the horce and many other elements with the game. only time will tell (hehe sneeky POP quote there)

I hope they make the controls of the horse good *remembers Shadow of the Colossus* that horse had bad controls o_O

anywho.. yeah. I can imagine using the horse to get near to the place you want, and then taking the rest by foot. because I can't imagine a stealth attack from a horse http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_razz.gif hehe

I think a horse will be more usefull for the getaway. And I doubt you will want to walk from Jerusalem to Damascus. LOL Long distance travel and speedy getaway would be the most logical uses I would think.

I hope you can own your own horse, but I hope I doesnt come running when you whisle for it, haha. Its gonna be GTA style on a horse.

eh, for speedy getaways I prefer the whole freerunning scene. Jade Raymond (is that her name?) said "You can do all sorts of cool stuff on a horse, but it is mainly used for getting around" and then later on "There is a battleground, but I cant release any other information"

Hmmmm... maybe the 'cool stuff' on your horse will take place in the battleground? Lets hope, there hasn't been a good horse combat game in... ever.

How kick as- (whoops forgot bout the kiddies, oh wait i'm thirteen,) kick butt would it be to be stabbing and slashing while atop a horse and if fighting others on horses, cutting the horses legs and making it fall, crushing the rider. OR HOW FRICKEN AWESOME WOULD IT BE if he like did that jumpy like move in the trailer while a guy on a horse was running at him, he stabs the guy riding the horse knocking him off, and finally Altair (forgot his name) lands on the former rider with his dagger in his neck (much so like the unfortunate guard in the trailer) SO AWESOME, hope you understood what i meant.

THe whole jumping off the horses back could come in quite handy in a getaway. Ride around the corner, hop up onto a roof while they chase your horse...

as acilles5784 said, travel and getaways would probably be the most logical reason for having a horse, but you'd probably use the horse in getaway after you've reached the gates of the town/village( you understand what I'm saying here right?) the "forest" you've got is north kingdom and south kingdom. Who ever heared of the desert plains idea, there probably will be a desert in the game, it's the middle east, Duh! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/354.gif but you'd have to ride through it to get to where your'e going, I doubt there will be any assasssination missions in the dessert, like SOAD rightfully said, you can't sneak up on some one in the dessert. But who says there's only going to be assassination missions? mabye you raid convoys for money and provisions, just a thought.

Im sure it will be close to real life with the horse and that probally means it will not be like Zelda, with the horse were you can call it at any moment but probally to the extent where you own your own horse.

i dunno if you have your very own horse or not, but it would be pretty damn cool if it was like GRAND THEFT HORSE or something like that =)

I would suppose you could steal a horse from the guards or something like that, after all your an assasin. I like the idea of the horse distracting the crowd causing major panic. The guards would go to calm the horse, and you would enter the palace without anyone noticing you. And yes the idea of the getaway is pretty cool. Imagine it being like need for speed but with horses, with guards chasing you on horses. I would also like it if the horse gets tired, he would need water and herbs to eat.

on the xbox 360 trailer it shows the player bieng able to pull the horse onto its hind hooves(or legs http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_confused.gif) and watched as the crownd backed away...
maybe this would be an advantage when u need to escape and every1 runs away in fear???
just a thought
