It appears so

*Very minor spoilers about Desmond missions in general in article, nothing plot wise really*

http://ps3.ign.com/articles/121/1211998p1.html

I find this sort of interesting, seeing as I've always wanted to see how this would look, but it may only be when were no in combat. I just hope their not gonna try to say AC3 is gonna be 1st person. Which it won't.

However surely the guy he's talking about is S16.

But what do you guys think? Will it be good? Ubisoft usually does a pretty good job, they wouldn't do it if it didn't work.

Im honestly not sure! They threw the "Inception" comparison in there which confused me. But Im guessing something like that, except without the blatant red objects of course. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

I think the best option be on the "Options" Meno there should be a "Turn on/off" "First Person".

My dad hates games in Third Person (how AC looks like) and loves First Person. I love both but I prefer Third Person http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Why does it need first person? Unless its vital to the puzzles then it does nothing but disorientate the player http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

Yes! This is how I think the AC games should of been in the first place. Desmond gameplay in first person but the Animus gameplay being in third person.

More people would play it if there is an option. And no it doesn't disorientate the player, it's actually easier to orientate IMO.

I think he meant going from first person to third person.

If it went like this it wouldn't be like AC at all http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/shady.gif
I agree, it would be disorientating having some missions in 1st person.

No it wouldn't! It would be awesome and just reinforce the idea of the Animus! It's so Assassin's Creed!

I suppose the idea would grow on me, like it would with many people, but it would make a lot of things like freerunning quite difficult http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-surprised.gif

I prefer third-person games over first-person, so I wouldn't want AC to turn into a full-on first-person game. Having a few Desmond missions in that style doesn't sound too bad though.

It would definitely help you feel apart of the game, but then you get the gamers who would instantly jump around shouting that they are copying Mirror's Edge.. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/51.gif

He is playing as himself just like he would play as an ancestor, so if the third person view was because of the animus (which it is not) then it wouldn't matter any way.

I REALLY hope there's an option to turn off this feature if we don't want to play that way, if they want to add this kind of thing I'm fine with it, but at least make it optional...

so now doesn't like a feature of an AC game is forbidden?! If you are fine with them making Desmond sequences in 1st person and accept everything they throw at your face, good for you, I don't like games in 1st person and for me AC isn't supposed to be a game in 1st person, like I said, if they want to add this kind of feature, I'm fine with it, but make it optional...

I think what they mean by some desmond missions being in first person is the memories where we just learn stuff about him, to see his piont of view. I dont think they mean any kind of mission where we will be free running or anything like that. Like we might see him with his parents or something in first person

but those missions are the ones that I want to be able to play in 3rd person more than any other, I don't like games in 1st person... :P

Yeah, I agree with you, but I'm just saying it kinda makes sense to have those types of "missions" in a first person point of view to reiterate that its his memories we would be viewing.

But like you said, I like third person so much more, thats one of the reasons I like Assassin's Creed so much is because its not in First person

I agree with you, and now that you said, it makes sense Desmond seeing his own memories in 1st person, but even if it makes sense I would like to play those memories in 3rd person, the entire game is in 3rd person since AC1, this is something that wouldn't bother me at all, and the memories of his ancestors are stored in his dna in 1st person too, is the animus that makes possible for Desmond to see them in 3rd person so I don't see why not make possible for him to see his own memories inside of the animus from a 3rd person perspective too...

well, let's cross our fingers and pray that they also had the idea to make this feature optional.. xD

Altair661
11-09-2011, 05:54 PM
I think they're mainly doing this to show just how important these memories are, and that they are Desmond's first hand experiences. It'll be interesting to see how they'll take it. I doubt we'll do much combat in it though.

Who knows it could be good, luckily we only have less than a week away!

I will probably like it no matter how it will be in the end, but I would prefer it to be optional. I prefer 3rd person by far. But who knows, maybe there's a good reason...

I don't really mind this, cause Mirror's Edge was pretty good, so if Ubisoft does it right, platforming wouldn't be a problem. But I don't get why this was necessary. :|

This!!!!!!



but yeah, i dont think they will have any real platforming sequences in first person so i dont think we have to worry about a mirror's edge duplicate
