since i guess the game is a freeform type game, and i know that most of the assassinations will be during the day, but will there be night.

I can't tell, i haven't seen any night in the trailers but they wanted to go for reality so i think there will be nightfall

I remember an old interview with Jade( I think)... can't find the source anymore so don't believe me if you want...

Jade said that there will be night during certain mission... but it will not be a day/night cycle!

I believe you and I certainly hope they will include at least one night mission, hopefully more. It'll be great to plan and execute an assassination in the dark of night!

Ijust hope it won't be day and night like spiderman 3 was, Daytime lasts for about 3 hours and night for about 3 minutes

I hope that there is a day/night cycle but i believe that one of the assassins customs was to assassinate their target in broad daylight so that everybody could see

If there were a day and night cycle, and if it were realtime even during missions, it would totally change the gameplay of it all, how awesome would that be. You would actually have to change your planning for a mission if you were taking longer than you expected.

I think it was something like every assassination takes place within a certain time. So say after assassination 3 it becomes night, jan 14 or something. then after assassination 4 it becomes day, jan 15. Not sure bout that but heard that somewhere. wasnt there another topic like this?

Yea you're pretty right about the time set-up. I remember Jade saying that each assassination would take place during a set time and there wouldn't be a day/night cycle. It's supposed to be like Assassination A takes place at 9:45 on Jan 11 1191, then Assassination B takes place at 1:30 Jan 16 1191. That's not the way it'll be shown though i'm sure.

I'm nearly positive I remember her saying there would be a few night missions, can't find the article though.

If there was a day cycle, just think of all the extra work there'd have to be done.

All the Islamic calls to prayer and what have you.

You'd stand out in Damascus if you were the only guy not praying to Mecca.

So I dunno, Day/night cycles not phase me that much.

I think that in the game there would be nights becouse on the new trailer on the horse scene you can see the sun going down so i dont think like if the sun when the exact moment it goes down it starts going out on the other side, i mean, cmon. I think most missions would have to be during daylight becouse its not very probable they would be taking a "walk" a 3:00 a.m. but maybe you could enter their castle or house and kill him while he is in sleep i dont know what do u think? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/354.gif

i like the idea of the set time and if you don't get to kill him, u have to try the next day.

if there night will the gurds have torchs?

I assume so, the Hashashim did not prefer day over night, nor the other way around.

except there doesn't look like theres really going to be a time limit for most missions (though thinking about it now it would make sense...) as it would impinge on the freedom to just roam the cities. maybe you only have "infinite" time when you're doing an information gathering mission, but then it would alter the plot of the game if the characters were assassinated on different days... basically i think with all thats currently been said in the interviews that there probably won't be a time limit - it'll just stay mid-morning feb 22 or something for the entire mission.

I'm not too fond of time restrictions myself, but it would of course add to the realism of the game if you knew where a certain character was gonna be for a limited amount of time, thus having to assassinate him at that location before he moved on.

I think each assassination will take place at a set time as well.

One problem though, your wearing white clothing, it'll stick out like a radioactive sore thumb at night.

ah, but as part of the rpg features of this game, it is apparently possible to get different outfits if i remember the interviews correctly (which i'm pretty sure i do http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif)

marinius

Yeah, I don't believe you're stuck with the white robe all throughout the game. It would be fairly impractical to say the least to always have to wear white...

Indeed - you might be given a choice of outfit before each mission. In the video we have seen, Altair uses Monks for his social camoflauge, but of course there are other groups of people in the game. For example you might get to disguise yourself as a lepper, beggar, merchant, guard, knight, etc. That would add a twist to each mission (and the replayability of it), as you would then have to behave in a certain way until near your target.

This change of clothes-idea could also work on another level: You might seek out your victim wearing one set of clothes only to realize that you're not gonna be able to get close to him wearing what you're wearing: Ergo: back to your HC for a quick change of costume and bam! you're golden... http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_cool.gif

This is a nice idea and I would welcome it but only if it's not a necessity, if you want to get close the easy way by changing clothes then that is an option. However even without changing you should still be able to get near the target although it would be harder to do so compared to the change of clothes.

That would be cool and how fun would it be to be a lepper...however I can't stop thinking it might be counterproductive seeing as everyone would run away from you, so there would be no crowd to blend in with.

Yeah, I agree. Like we've seen in the first trailer, it should/would be more difficult for Altair to complete his mission if he didn't wear his white robe making it possible for him to blend in with the monks. It would be imaginable that he could be wearing a different outfit, then having to plan his attack in a different way from what is shown in the trailer.

If you can change your clothes which i agree would be cool. Then how will Altair hide his Dagger, which is on that kind of bracer thing on his arm ( i know the dagger is hidden inside but still it'd look abit strange ), and what about his other weapons? He aint gonna fight of heavily armed gaurds with a small dagger if the situation arises.

bobbylucifer1
05-31-2007, 02:41 PM
well, just because it isnt the same outfit doesnt mean it cant have long sleeves. my second point is that altair doesn't go to huge lengths exactly to hide his other weapons so it wouldn't be that strange having the dagger visible and three whilst we've heard that you'll be able to change outfits, the fact that we aren't involved in making the game really means your asking the wrong people. it seems to me from your question that you think his other weapons are somehow attached to his clothes and that changing outfits would mean losing his weapons which is definitely not the case.

Robbob92
05-31-2007, 03:15 PM
True Enough i guess but still.
You wouldnt be seen wandering around with a crossbow and some throwing knives strapped on ya, while wearing your sunday best http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_razz.gif
I suppose the actual point of changing outfits would be to make you blend in more, so i didnt mean that his weapons were stuck to him, only that the social stealth part of changing clothes in the first place is to look inconspicuous and then putting your throwing daggers and crossbow back on.
Just thoughts on the idea... Not trying to get answers just start a bit of discussion, aint that what forums are about? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif
