check out the new trailer and pause it when the person says angel of death. when he says angel altair's sword is shown and its curved like a rapier. also towards the begining of the vid the handle of his sword is different. this new sword is only shown in a few clips the rest just show his original one.

Probably going to be several swords including regular straight longsword, scimitar and a cutlass.

Although I would have thought that a curved blade wouldn't have been used seeing that alot of Altair's fighting moves (from what I've seen of the game) are pretty elaborate and he'd want to be able to use either side of a double edged sword.

hmm i have a feeling the PC version might be delayed or cancelled
but I doubt it more.

I think they are keeping that a secret.

But seriously that game looks like it requires a mofo processor and gpu

As I just said, I think that Scimitar is one of the items you get returned to you during the game.

<BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><div class="ip-ubbcode-quote-title">quote:</div><div class="ip-ubbcode-quote-content"> Community Q&A - Weapons

How many weapons or equipment can Altair carry at once?
There are four main types of weapons which Altair will be able to use in Assassin's Creed a long sword, short sword, throwing knives, and his hidden blade. The long sword is the medieval weapon of choice and as you progress through the game you'll be given the chance to get new, better swords. The short sword is a traditional Arabic weapon and very good at close combat.

Throwing knives are clearly best for killing at a distance but these are consumable so you'll have to think about when and where to use them. One of the main strengths of the knives are that they can kill with one hit, so you may wish to use them when surrounded by enemies but their key strength is in taking our archers when approaching your main target. Guards and archers that you kill around your target's lair will not be replaced so a good way to set up a successful mission is to sneak around and clear the area of as many soldiers as possible. You obviously also have the option to use your fists but hand to hand combat is only really useful when you want to get information from someone who is not wielding a weapon.

Last but not least is Altair's signature weapon: the hidden blade. This is a retractable blade attached at the forearm that juts out where Altair's left ring finger used to be. You can use your hidden blade in combat but its real purpose is assassination. All of the spectacular and stealth assassination moves are available only when the hidden blade is selected.
</div></BLOCKQUOTE>

This is all on the official assassin's creed website. We are pretty sure they took the cross bow out of the game a while back. what you see in the first pick are the knives. Go to the pic thread and find a picture of Altair from behind, you'll see that they are just the throwing knives.

Just take a look at the pre-order page. You will notice at the top left of the case it has "PC DVD ROM" or CD ROM which ever it is but it is there.

ya you are right. those are throwing darts/bolts. i looked those up online and aparently those were used back then. maybe throwing bolts are an upgrade to the knives.

09-24-2007, 11:32 PM
I would say...
Thats Altair's original sword, but he loses it and never gets it back, I believe this because, a fair few of the gameplay trailers have been a fair while into the game and he still has his normal plain awesome sword. Not this shiny gold one.


Thats my 2 cents anyway.

those werent crossbow bolts. those were his throwing dagger stash. look carefully, if those were crossbow bolts there would be more and they would be thinner and not grooved for a handle

Thumper1980
09-25-2007, 01:57 AM
Manslayer is right.

THEY are throwing knifes, as has been established, if you're going to argue that they're crossbow bolts then you are a tool.

They are throwing knives, it's not open for debate.

hmm...

on the subject of the sword... i don't think you get a new sword in the game. the only reason that would happen is because you either lose the old one (which i like better than that annoying tin foil scabbard) or you lose this one because you fail a mission... one of the two... but not for some stupid reason like youbuy it or anything like that.

BTW, i thought i migh point out that i don't think that is a scimitar. or even a rapier (someone said it, maybe not in this thread). i believe (again maybe another delusion) that that is classified as a sabre... the curve is right and it doesnt have a huge ended blade as scimitar's do... at least i think that's what it is...

Thumper1980
09-25-2007, 04:53 AM
Wouldn't be a sabres, they didn't start using sabres until like 16th century or something like that.

I understand why you suggested it because of the knuckle guard thing but yeah i dunno, that'd wreck it for me because i hate sabres.

It's too thick to be a Rapier. Rapiers are like musketeer swords to put it into context for some of you.

it looks a little katanaish from the look at the scarb (spelling) but i doubt it is, because altair isn't the kind of guy you would expect to use a katana, also i hope its not a rapier, should just be a normal sword he would look weird using anything else

Sabres were first introduced to europe in the 10th century, actually. ( And earlier in middle-east )

But rapiers were starting to appear 16th-17th century, so it's not probably a rapier.

It's similar to a turkish or persian scimitar.

Also, more on the weapon thing on the same trailer I noticed more weapons changes, pause when he jumps off of the building after the line:

Nonsense this is stories, such myths do not exsist.

You see? He has the normal sword here, AND we finnaly see what replaces the crossbow, the dagger, or throwing knife, he kills the guy with in the video.

what?! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blink.gif

looks like the same sword to me!

and the crossbow was replaced by another dagger/shortsword (don't eat me moqqy! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/sadeyes.gif) a long time ago.

the throwing knives are different form that thing, that is simply too big to be thrown around! that's the equivalent of throwing a double-handed axe around! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/88.gif

maybe if you get an upgraded sword but prefer your old one you can pick.

09-27-2007, 01:20 PM
ya I think you can customise. like sometimes he has the shortsword on his back and sumtimes its a throwin dagger quiver or w/e. maybe you can sacrifice the short sword if you want to and have extra throwing knives. I tink you pick what you want where for certain spots. like in rainbow six vegas you pick wut weps you want and gadgets. maybe this will be like that and instead of gadgets you pick either short sword or extra throwing knives.
