I personally really like the design. It's normal enough to not stand out and still has the Assassin-ish parkour-look. Now he just has to wear the hood during missions. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Desmond, het hoofdpersonage uit de Assassin's Creed-franchise, krijgt voor het eerst een volledige nieuwe look. Met de nieuwe look kunnen we duidelijk zien dat Desmond zijn kleren meer in de richting van een moderne 'Assassin-look' gaan. Opvallend is de tatoeage die het hoofdpersonage zichtbaar maakt door zijn mauwen naar omhoog te sloven.
Those people at PS3Life really can't spell properly. 'Mauwen' should be 'mouwen'. Anyway, translation for the non-Dutch speaking:


Desmond, the main character from the Assassin's Creed-franchise, gets a new complete new look for the first time. With this look, we can clearly see that Desmond is heading towards the 'modern assassin-look' in his clothing. Striking is the tatoo the main character reveals by rolling his sleeves up.

Its allright i suppose. i hope thats a hood behind, cos ya know the hood is sort of the assassin trademark. another point, what about weapons like the hidden blade, it doesn't look like that outfit caters for one aesthetically.

Nobody complain about the bag it looks sick!!!
I love the new look. I was hoping he wouldn't get flashy and stay in his outfit. They did that just made it cooler and more assassinish.

Of course that's a hood also.

If they read this, don't let people that complain about the new look away you. I'm sure most of us love it. Plus since it's modern maybe the bag and other things will be optional.

This may not even be the final design, or atleast it may be a bit different, but yeah it does look kinda good, nothing particularly revolutionary, or original for that matter, to me he looks like a cross between cole mcgrath and nate drake, with desmonds face.

Pretty sure it is a hood. Glad they resisted the impulse to make him a pretty boy. The Neaderthal nose and brow ridge at least suggests he'll be able to take care of himself.

I'd prefer the hood down as well, but since Altair and Ezio have worn hoods for a majority of the game (Altair for the full game), I'm thinking Desmond's going to do the same thing.

$20 says that Desmond will have the whole dramatic hood wearing cutscene http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

Hopefully it doesn't look as awkward as it did in AC2; Antiquated mechanisms plus modern clothing don't really seem to go together. Maybe it will undergo a revision as well to better fit the outfit?

I like the new look, though, I've imagined him wearing a holster with a handgun and the hidden blade for a stealth/melee kills...?

Well his hidden blade is also a gun so no need for an extra one. I was thinking he'd have a crossbow though or some kind of one shot rifle - maybe he will in the game?

Looks awesome. Although I would've preferred him to have long, flowing clothing like a white trenchcoat or something, so it'll be more in line with what his ancestors wore. Right now, a simple white hoodie seems kinda.... bare? I dunno.

And I always envisioned Assassin-Desmond to wear stuff thats more tactical in nature, like combat boots and pouches and stuff. Also, how is he gonna use a hidden blade if he insists on showing off his tattoo?

Remember that the core principle of Assassin's Creed is social stealth. That way it's best for him to wear something that wouldn't look out of place in a crowd.

As for the Hidden Blade, we'll see. He might simply not wear it in this image. It's likely only a concept image to show of the costume, as someone said earlier.

What would it be if not the Hidden Blade? The new screens are awesome, by the way.

09-23-2010, 11:18 AM
It's just my opinion for christ sake. lol

It looks a bit like the hidden blade but I don't believe it is. At the end of ACII Lucy actually gives you the Blade to fight Vidics guards and it was the full blade and bracer that Ezio used. Fair enough that could be a lightened version of it but, as some of us know there's a chance that Desmond may not need the animus anymore and to me the position of whatever it is falls in line with it being some kind of arm mounted display/monitoring system. With Blu-Tooth of course, everythings better with Blu-Tooth. TBBT!

I could be talking absolute crap though. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

I'm not saying it belongs to Cole or Sam because, A: I own one and use it on a daily basis, and I don't act like I invented it. B: I was just pointing out that there could be a bit of a trend starting in video games, e.g. Cole (inFamous) Sam (Splinter Cell), Harry Flynn (Uncharted 2) and now Desmond.

EDIT: I hope Ubisoft start selling those hoodies. I want one, and not just because Desmond wears one, I genuinely like it.

i quite like the idea of desmond having tattoos, gives a bit more personality, also this got me thinking, that desmond may be well suited to the social side of the assassins, i mean he was a bar man, that might stand for something, plus he managed to avoid detection for several years.

im just goin on here about how i was thinking about desmonds personality, his bio would lead us to believe he was a very 'shut in' person.

ive gotta stop babbling.

In the first game he was portrayed as a smart@$$ whiny guy who spent his entire life on the run from his family. He purposefully chose the easiest and least noticeable profession to hide himself in, he wears bland clothing, and he goes out of his way to avoid concealment (such as using only bills to pay money or not using his real name).

Now he has a tattoo? Do I need to tell you how stupid it is for somebody on the run from the worlds two most powerful organizations to have a tattoo when it's bad enough he has a scar? It's not even a tattoo that one can easily hide, it's a sleeve tat visible to the entire world and uses bright vibrant colors. Personally, it would be more accepting if it was somewhere one couldn't see (like his back) but between his sleeve tattoo and his facial scar he might as well have written his name on his forehead.

The other aspects of Desmond though (the red inside of the sweater, the wrist watch, the "modern" look, etc) seem nice. I'm a bit on the fence with the beard, I like it and approve of him wearing one (only women and eunuchs don't have beards) but the way he has it seems off. Would be better if they did it like Ezio's beard instead of the one he has in the screenshot...

Good point. I agree I just don't think it fits his description as an introverted sort of low-key person.

Since when do tattoos have anything to do with personality and behavior? There are plenty of bad *** tough guys out in the world who would never mark up their bodies and there are plenty of genuinely nice quiet guys who would. I thought we were past stereotypes? As for the type of tattoo he's sporting, he can easily cover it up with a long sleeve shirt. Not difficult.

I love the new look. All of it. Very cool.

its a method of identification, it can be used to build a description of a person. something a bit like this:
Desmond miles. 6 ft tall, 25 years old, distinctive scar on the right side of his lip, patterned tattoo on his left arm.

it goes against his personality as someone who made such an effort not to get found, that h'd go and get such an identifying feature, but then again he did go and get a bloody motorbike. (maybe rplace the horse in AC3?...)

Not a bad idea. Only problem is they're too fast. Unless the cities that we're in are big enough it might be a little too cramped for them. It's definitely something I think they should look into though.

About the tattoo, how do we know he had a choice? He might have had it done before he ran away, to show he was a decedent of Altair and Ezio.

itsamea-mario
09-24-2010, 09:35 AM
His parents probably didn't know he was descended from ezio, Ezio didn't know he was descended from altair, also its a bit of an odd tattoo for such a purpose, also im sure that modern assassins try and as descreet as possible.

mikeh1294
09-24-2010, 09:48 AM
But he was kept at a farm in the middle of nowhere, maybe for protection? Don't forget that people kept better records in the 1500's that in Altair's time (The date escapes me). So it makes sense that the Assassin order would pay extra attention to Ezio's decedents.

They would need a way of marking themselves as Assassin's, and we know that changes over time.
Altair was missing his ring finger. As this was conspicuous, people in the 1500's used a brand to mark their ring finger, and this was covered by there own rings.
People nowadays don't wear as many rings, as it is no longer a sign of your social standing, so therefore a brand would be harder to hide. However, lots of people have tattoos, so the Assassins would not be as obvious is they adopted this as a sign.

Also, he might have been trying to fit in to the bartender role, and got a tattoo to show he was his own man now, not bound to the Assassin order.

Im not sure he even knew he was even part of an order. from his description, he thought they where fanatic hippy nutjobs. we don't even know that it was the 'assassin' order that he was born into, it may just have been a bunch of fanatic hippy nutjobs.

Did Ezio know he was a part of the order? No. His father and uncle did though, so maybe they didn't tell Desmond.
And I'm sure they are Assassin's, I have a feeling it was confirmed at one point.
Also, his entire family have been in the order, so why would it suddenly stop?

For all we know, he has an older brother that is a fully-fledged assassin! (Wild idea, I know)

Just found this on the Wiki:
http://assassinscreed.wikia.com/wiki/The_Farm

It says that the people from the Farm were responsible for the attack on Abstergo.

In the very beginning of the first one. The doctor tells Desmond he knows who he is. What he is. Desmond says that's he's not an assassin. Not anymore...

What exactly does that mean? That he use to be? Is Desmond playing along? Does he know more than we think?

And I'm sure they are Assassin's, I have a feeling it was confirmed at one point.
Also, his entire family have been in the order, so why would it suddenly stop?

For all we know, he has an older brother that is a fully-fledged assassin! (Wild idea, I know)

Just found this on the Wiki:
http://assassinscreed.wikia.com/wiki/The_Farm

It says that the people from the Farm were responsible for the attack on Abstergo. </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

And desmond left before he could find out about the assassin order. in the begining of AC2 he says that he didn't know they existed.

And yet he says to Vidic "I'm not an assassin… not any more." This implies that he knew all about them.

And he ran away when he was 16, they would have most likely inducted him when he turned 18.

you sound like your contradicting yourself there.

besides, just because they assassinated people it doesn't mean they where assassins. (such an awkward title).
desmond probably didn't fully understand what vidic meant when he said assassin, desmond may have just thought of it in the 'hired killer' sense, and not the assassin order sense.

He was probably told before by his parents that they were Assassin's, maybe even the Assassin Order, which, of course, he didn't believe and thought them to be hippie whackjobs.

But when Vidic began talking about it he probably began believing that it's true, along with what was pretty much a confirmation by Lucy and Vidic.

I think he knew what they believed, they believed in TWCB, Ezio, the Templars, etc., but he didn't believe it himself.

He wasn't fully inducted into the order, i.e. shown how to kill, given the blade, etc., because he was too young.

He though his parents and the others were crazies, but when he relived some memories and talked to Vidic and Lucy, he started to believe it.

I don't think he knew much about their beliefs because he obviously never heard of the Templars (as they portrayed in the first game anyway), TWCB, or Ezio before learning it for himself.

I wouldn't read too much into what the wiki says (I've seen a lot of crazy stuff on there). I don't think Vidic in any way implied that they were from Desmond's own Farm, just one of the many Assassin holdouts left - and in AC2 it's further mentioned how close to extinction they are. Come to think of it, since they're in Italy, it's almost certain that they wouldn't be from Desmond's own little community as they're in Italy, and were called to come by Lucy.

Desmond does talk about the attack with Lucy, and then how Abstergo is raiding the Assassin bases. He then asks if his parents are ok.

This implies he knew they were Assassins.

He obviously knew they were Assassins - the people that tried to break him out and his parents. How much he knew beyond that though isn't certain.

NO! It wouldn't work with an AC Game. It'd be stupid because of how non-assassin's creed it would be!

About his goatee. The game will probably start with him in the truck no beard. Then when Ezio gets shot at his villa it messes Desmond up a bit. Maybe gets k.o'd for a few days since being born as ezio messed him up a bit. He exits to see a destroyed villa. Then he brings everyone to the bookcase passage that he should know how to use haha.

I like the outfit, but the tats throw it off for me. As people have been saying, ink and body scars are the two main ways of visual identification.

As for people wanting the hoodie, it can't be that difficult. Isn't it just a white hoodie with a red interior?

Also, the bag does make him look a bit like the InFamous guy.

Problem is, the villa doesn't exist in modern day Monteriggioni. After all, the town -- and the villa along with it -- was completely destroyed. So there'll probably be another way to get there.

Maybe it is a stripped down version of the hidden blade that would allow for a greater degree of concealment. I'm sure there is most likely a hidden gun on there as well.

One would have to wonder that despite local laws pertaining to the possession of weapons, if an organization can afford to build/pilfer an Animus, why can't they buy handguns? This might explain why they are losing the 'war'. (Pay attention to the sarcasm).

I don't know about him, but I saw it in a trailer on the AC wiki... It's just a short video showing Ezio going into Leonardo's war machine and such. But Leonardo has a large beard and otherwise looks pretty much the same... Here's the link. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IAeW0uPwi3U

I'm kind of expecting quite a few of Leo's inventions. I mean if he's building them for the Borgia and seeing as they seem to be sticking to history as much as possible and yet bending it to fit with the storyline then there could be a couple more things we haven't heard of yet.

The thing is though that he actually invented that. I'm sure it didn't work as well as it does in the trailer though, as the mechanics were sloppy an unfinished on the real thing.

As a form of self-expression, I think tattoos are great. But to blend in and hide? What if he wears a short-sleeve shirt? Also, you're right... there are a lot of white-caucasians with tattoos on their forearms. But there are much more white-caucaisans that don't have tattoos on their forearms.
