I remember hearing that Desmond was going to do more than just walk around, so does anyone have an idea on what he'll do?

somewhat like tht but yes the extended time in the animus causes him to become altair
in a way

just because they said he will do more than walk doesnt mean he will actualy fight he just might have a slightly larger area he can explore and spy on.

I can only suspect that at some time in the game the Assassins break him out (maybe at the end?) and he gets to handle a gun. Or he might do jobs for the Templars etc etc. I have no idea. Only time will tell.

He probably might do some eavesdropping around Abstergo,
So instead of just depending on Lucy and The computers and hopefully getting info from Vidic
He might sneak around Abstergo finding the information for himself

And the chair has missiles attached to it, and a helicopter rotor blade so it can fly around Abstergo.

he was a assassin but he ran away from the compund ( home , training etc)

and came to the city to blend in and he was a bartender

I think it could be anything at this point from sitting lol to sneaking around

But I have a theory. In recent reviews and interviews they say that Desmond will be helping the assassin's find something not the templars

This either means nothing because Lucy is an assassin I think and by helping assassin's that just means he is helping Lucy

or it could mean that Desmond will have to escape Abstergo during the game, maybe during a rescue attempt by the assassin's

Maybe you will get to kill a few ppl as Desmond

YOU NEVER KNOW

I was just thinking... what was Desmond's alias after he left the Farm?

Desmond: How did they find me? I mean, I havn't been anywhere near another Assassin for ten years.
Lucy: Use your real name?
Desmond: Nope, not before today.

This might not be an important detail. But in one of Kaxen's comics, Desmond is being critisized by Altair & Ezio as being the 'odd one out' for not having a name that has anything to do with birds or flying (this one (http://askalty.smackjeeves.com/comics/621774/odd-one-out/)).

So maybe his alias has something to do with birds of prey.

That is a possibility but I'd feel so dorky giving myself a fake name that has to do with birds. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_razz.gif I doubt he'd give himself some sort of exotic bird name. Lol Thoth would be such a bad name, or Horus, or Re/Ra

Maybe he went by Angel at one point?

They already tried that. The last ones are dead except for him, lucy, and maybe the stray one hiding in some hole.
Well since he has the sight. The next one will be something to to do with running,jumping,or attacking. Possibly blending,grabbing,or pushing.

I think if Desmond has to get out of Abstergo... If he has to fight his way out... I think he'll use his bare hands cause at E3, Patrice says something like "The reason Ezio is so good at using his bare hands is because he has to be an Assassin, before being a warrior." I think Lucy is either an Assassin or the Enemy. (Whoever that might be in AC3. Maybe the Illuminati?)

I doubt he'll do parkour. It takes wide spaces and big buildings to do parkour, and no way Ubi has drawn the 2012 world, unless they stole Prototype's models.

If Desmond could do parkour than it would explain why he ran away and how he got his lip scar.

I recently read in an interview with two directors for AC2, in a Playstation magazine here in the UK that; Desmond will be moved to somewhere in Africa and will now be using the Animus 2.0. Instead of helping Abstergo he will now be helping the Assassins. I assume this means you'll be rescued at the begining of the game? I'll try and borrow the magazine from my friend to quote it word for word, I should have it by Wednesday.
