Hey I herd that one guy from the team spent 2 years doing the horse. It has the same aspects as the croud which means that it will react to strees and will help you (like come to you when it is called). Also you can learn commands for the horse throughout the game and you can teach it to scale buildings trample guards etc. One last thing. I also herd that (unlike many other games)you can fight on horse back which will be really cool. I recon the horse is one of the major aspects of the game http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

I also heard that there are no loading times so you can basically ride your horse anywhere you want, including in cities, seeing as how jade could do it in her demo presentation.

as seen in the video (demo showed by the lovely jade) you can ride on your horse wherever you want so if they stick with that its fine by me

I hope you can use the horse to do whatever. Do you guys think that there will be just one horse for the entire game, or will it be like GUN where if you find any horse, you can ride it. I hope it's like GUN.

XBfreak_101
02-18-2007, 02:34 PM
Actually I believe you will mostly be riding your own horse since this is going for a realistic theme. You won't find a horse on each block of the city. You might find some horses in one of the citites but thats probably it.

Do note that there's different colored horses in one picture he's riding a white horse and in another he's riding his brown one that could mean two things more things but i can only specifically think of two

there's horses in a stable at the base and you choose before you go out (heh) or you can steal horses :-\ dunno

I've been thinking.. Do you remember The "Shadow of the Colossus" ? Out there you could use Aggro ( the horse ) all the time. Personally I dont think Ubi will do the same thing but It would be more realistic.

Highly unlikely. I dont believe they would allow you to do this. Once upon a time there were archers, pikemen etc. ? A well aimed arrow can kill any man.

of old age? only if you spend too long planning a mission


originaly by me: "Are the horse-riding sections going to be a challenge, or are they just sequences that blend the cities together?

Jade Raymond: It's not like you're riding the horse on a path or anything. The horse has a bit of a personality and does certain things to help you in fight situations. He reacts to stress and reacts to enemies being around you. You can also fight on horseback; you need to learn certain commands to do things like make him jump or do acrobatics from the saddle to reach higher places. So there's quite a bit of depth to the horse. We've had an animator and a programmer working for almost two years on just the horse."

I know this was discussed before, but it's relevant to this thread so...

Check out this map:
http://www.fordham.edu/halsall/maps/crusaders2.jpg
Damascus is pretty far away from Jerusalem, and the Assassin's stronghold is in the northern part of the Holy Land (instead of being at the center of the three cities).

Assuming the horse doesn't get tired at all and can gallop continuously at 30mph, It would take around 6 hours to ride from the Assassin's stronghold to Jerusalem. I don't care how long they've spent programming the horse, there's no way that can be fun for 6 straight hours. I wonder what Ubi did about this. Are there cut sequences when travelling, or do you have a super-horse that can cover the distance in a few minutes.

Hmm... I wonder what the deal will be. Maybe it actually takes that long, but there's enough other stuff to keep you busy on the way.

Your thoughts?

I doubt they would make 6 hours to get from place to place. That would kinda ruin the game a little. They will probably make it take like 5 or 10 minutes.

I think the horse will be used for transportation from city to city, I don't think you'll be able to use it in the city, simply because this will enable you to use to in the getaway part of each assassination too, which defeats the excitement of that part...

the e3 demo he rides straight in to the town rears the horse on its hind legs then gets off

the other point is they close the gate as he runs for it while bieng chased, so even on horse back you cant get through, kinda spoils the get away plan if you wanna ride straight up to the target then ride like a sob into the sunset
