To what extent do you want the blood in this game to be?

I hope it's very gory actually(not to the point of limbs falling off just lots and lots of blood).

gory and fairly gory are similar enough. you should've had a 'realistic' option, thats what i'd have voted for...

I would say rather not too bloody or, like hortys said, realistic.

I hope the blood isnt fake looking. I would want a realistic amount of it depending on how you kill the enemy.

lol. If this game hold true to the way of the assassin then there should be little to no blood. And with a health system set up the way this one is, I would say that the blood will be just as realistic. Never was a fan of extreem blood.....

i like having blood in a game but too much can spoil a game and cause the age rating to go up ( not that i am bothered because i have san andreas n shizzle )
but i would like to see realistic blood

in that gameplay video i liked the way when you assassinate william the blood spats up when you stab him in the back of the neck

IMO they should not get limbs chopped off, well maybe heads but thats nothing new

also when people die and collapse to the floor they should be in a pool of blood

1 last point, if you are injured duy to a fight, depending where the wound is you should leave a trail of blood dropplets, this would mean guards could track you and it would be up to you to heal it and lose their tail

There wont be Mortal Kombat style blood, flowing off them in big drips and stuff, but i hope its gona be realistic...i have a feeling there wont be much blood as a high gore level means a higher game age limit, and i think ubi want this to stay mature so its aimed at a bigger target market.

I went with realistic, but by that I DON'T mean above gory.

Yes, there should be blood. But not like most people would think of when they say "realistic." I don't mean gallons of blood squirting out, and limbs being removed left and right, because that's NOT at ALL realistic. If I see my sword slash straight through a guy's neck, sure, I wanna see his head fly off. But if I swing my sword and I hit him in the chest, then I don't want to see him flying in half. Limb removal isn't common in real-life. Honestly, most deaths by swords were probably done by stabbing, not by cutting off the guy's head with your claymore.

I want to see realistic ammounts of blood. Not a gorefest, but not a tiny little mist of red.

If you notice the trailers, it seems the team has focused (mercifly) on sound more than visual as far as gore is concerned. In the trailer you can clearly hear a wet almost snapping sound as the blade enters the victim, mix this with active facial expressions such as pain and fear and you come out with a far more intense and satisfying kill than you would if you simply had an arm fall on the ground. Im not saying the game shouldnt have any blood, in keeping with realisim it would need some, however hardcore blood means nothing if the other aspects of mortality and physics dont exist. Example, how many people here remember Goldeneye for N64, hopefully everyone, do you remember how great everyone thought it was and how, and i quote "no game has been able to equal that kind of first person shooter satisfaction again" (quote taken from every bloody video game magazine in the world) That game and the FPS genere has be redone a million times with all gameplay aspects of the first goldeneye in place plus updated graphics and sound, but to no avail, no game has ever had the same impact. Obviously it wasnt the graphics and it certainly wasnt the gore in the game that made it so great, the fact of the matter is, for its time it was one of the FIRST games for a console system whos AI acted in a realistic and convincing manner it was also one of the first games to feature "realistic" death animations wich were variable depending on where they were shot and what you shot them with, it was also one of the first games where, if you were good enough, you could sneak around with your silencer and kill everyone without alerting any extra attention, games may copy all that now, but its only special once. Gore isnt the answer to making a kill sequence any better or more satisfying, its the beliveability of the character your killing, for its time the Goldeneye enemies were intensly satisfying to kill, now they seem almost stupid. Companies like ubisoft have there work cut out for them when it comes to making the enemy come to life, with only a limited amount of time for you to catch a background of the person you are going to assasinate and an ongoing demand for less load screens and less text screens its no wonder its getting harder and harder for kills to fell any more than an annoyance. You need to know your enemy in order to find value in taking his life from him. So yea, bring on the gore, but dont assume that visual gore is the only thing that needs to take place. Personaly im glad that Ubisoft has payed attention to more than just the visual aspect of the kill, its about time somone started paying attention to sound and feeling/character development rather than just blood, infact i'd go so far as to say that gore such as decapitations and limbs being removed are a cruch for a game rather than a dynamic that is added in the best interest of the gamers.

*hats off to ubisoft* Looks good guys, your game has singlehandedly fueled my desire for a PS3.

But Ubisoft should really try not to get a 18 rating. Many parents don't allow their childs to buy 18 rated games. (I'm on of the victims if it gets a 18 rating)

I suppose its in there best interest to keep the rating down, however being as the game is also coming out for PC (higher age demographic) I would be surprised if they activly tried to keep it down, i suppose they could do the Mortal Kombat thing and make it gory for one system and not the other, orrrrr they could be sneaky and put a scale on it like Turok did when it came out so you can add or remove the blood.

Although hight blood content for the sake of visual gore could be sen as a crutch, no blood would be pathetic

They should instead make the game that they are passionate about, and if that takes it to an 18 rating or whatever, then so be it. I'd rather have a game made the way it was meant to be, than one that has been dumbed down just so my mummy and my daddy can buy the game for me legally.

I would like to see an amount of blood maybe a bit more than that seen in Hitman: Blood Money. Also, I would like to see actual damage on the target (Meaning if I stab a guy in the chest, I should see a hole in his shirt, as opposed to just blood squirting out of his pecs) and I should see some blood, but I don't want to see Kill Bill-style violence (ever) again.

why?

because the game looks pretty realistic and it can still be a bit gory too ^^

i think its best for ubisoft not to make it a 18+ game (gears of war=extreme gory wich concludes too an 18+ rating wich leads to a bit of protest) 16+ and i think thats best http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

I think that if they make it as blood as Saving Private Ryan. In the beggining when the kick butt sniper guy runs past those machine gunners and rolls into the gully...and he looks up at the pillbox and snipes the guy right through the neck...that is the correct amount of blood that should come out when Altair digs his blade into his targets neck.

I actually like the blood in AC1 the most. Every time you stuck a sword, dagger, or hidden blade in a person and/or take it out, the blood was like drizzly rain. That was the most realistic blood I've seen in all the AC games. It wasn't to noticeable though, which was one of the problems with it.

AC2 has the most blood, ACB was an improvement to it, and ACR was probably the second best. But the blood in AC2-ACR has been very very sloppy and it flies across the screen or sometimes even entire map when you kill someone.

Nothing excessively gory but with the physics of something like Prototype (http://prototype.wikia.com/wiki/Prototype_Wiki). If you hit a guy with fists blood shouldn't be as noticable as if you cleave thier skull with a bearded axe.
Just to phrase it all better, fist= no blood, heavy weapon= blood. Also blod that stains other things besides weapon and victim. Meaning blood on the floor please.

The problem here is that realistic in this case is gory. If you buried an axe into some guards head or did most of the moves that Ezio does in any of the AC games it would create lots and lots of blood. I personally just wish that the blood would pool around the bodies. That's all I'm asking. As it is it's a little unrealistic. Oh I just impaled a guy with a pike and a few spurts of blood come out. Come on it would be pouring out. I agree it prob shouldn't be gory but I think it could be done better.

So from that I assume you've niether seen nor played prototype. Blood and body physics were about half the game. If you have a hammer weighing about 3x the weight of the person your about to hit it gets gory. Just a normal hit to a person has almost little to no blood if I remember correctly.

Just to try and sum it up better again, attention to small details Ubi.

You know what I've noticed about the combat and blood ever since AC2 came out? Is that whenever you hit a guards sword, it sounds like you're hitting his chest or something. And then blood gets all over the sword and the guard you're hitting.

What I don't understand is how does blood come out of a sword? That always irritated me when I was fighting guards from AC2-ACR. AC1, you actually made contact with the swords and either slowly broke down their defense or quickly broke it down.

To be honest I don't know if you're being sarcastic lol.

What I mean is that whenever you hit a guards sword, they fall back as if you are hitting them then blood comes out of nowhere when you're only hitting the sword. It makes me mad lol.

I'm not sure what about my comment made you think I've never played that piece of crap Prototype game and I don't mean to sound like a jerk but that game, outside of being terrible, went wayyyy overboard with blood. I don't want that to be the case in AC being that AC stays in the realm of plausible and realistic but my point was that a few spurts of blood after having your head crushed with an axe is imo unreasonable.

@Dom1999
What do you mean "mocking" the topic? Sure I got a little silly about it but I think my comment made it clear that I like the blood and that I want there to be more of it.

I liken my desire to the chapter in Odysseus, when he returns home to his villa to find all the suitors trying to claim his wife, the writer (Plato? I forget) likened him in the scene to a blood drenched lion, as he slaughtered the usurpers.

And how about in the movie Desperado, where El Mariachi has been wounded, and as he staggers along the street, he leaves a streak of blood along the wall where his injury touches it? Lots of blood. It can almost be used like paint on a canvas and a game like AC really makes good use of it as such, and I would have no problem with it being used more. Some of the images I depicted in my precious comment were ideas for how. Obviously not as exagerated, but that's what my comment was, exageration, not a mockery. I think it'd be pretty entertaining to have a weapon slip out of your hands from all the blood letting.

On a side note, and I don't mean this as an insult or an attack, I rented the movie that you use for your member image a while back (before I saw you had it). I thought it might be good but I was really dissapointed in the movie. I think it was aimed for a much younger audience, but that's hard to tell from the brief descriptions they give you.
