Sounds like SP DLC indeed, pretty much completing those two desmond platforming sections, but I HOPE there is more than just that.
And something I noticed:

SPOILERS AHEAD






Cross River styx without dying, well on the greek myth thats the river of the dead, finding you know who, right?

tarrero, I'm sure it said "Cross river Styx without failing"
Since to actually be near river Styx would imply the person is already dead...
I wonder what will they make out of this, sounds super cool!

that "land on a block" refers to some sort of desmond sequence i think

My guess is that the "crossing the river styx" part is referring to S16 cheating death.

I wouldn't mind it if it were. I liked the change of pace and they don't take very long to complete. I would like it if they were made a little more interactive though.

Not really a surprise, if you 100% everything in the game... (I can confirm this, as I have finished the game twice now) scroll all the way to the right to additional memories, it stays incomplete even though you have completed all the memory fragments. I'm so buying this... even if it is $10....

They simply changed the design. They're not going to add an entire part of Animus Island for DLC.

It wouldn't make sense story-wise. Besides, there are 2 suspicious gates that mysteriously got repaired when Animus Island was reconstructed. Also, as you can see from the date, The trailer was released 5 months before the release of ACR.

Yeah maybe they listened to our complaints and they won't make it as awful as it was in the game. Maybe they will be actual memories and not just Desmond talking about stuff that we mostly already knew or that is irrelevant to the story.

The induction leap of faith might refer to Clay, who was inducted into the order and we suspect he'll feature heavily in this DLC.
The "land on a block" and "River Styx" inlay there'll be more of those weird Desmond memories, although I suspect this time they may be Clay's.
Cross the River Styx reminds me of the river in Desmond's second sequence, after he escaped home.
I think it'll be Desmond viewing Clay's memories of his time at Abstergo, hence the "impress Warren Vidic" achievement.

"Land on a block after falling more than 25 meters" - this achievement looks a lot like something that could happen in those 1st person missions... I don't think we'll be seeing the memories like we do with the ancestors... =/

Hey who knows, we haven't had an Animus Island before and there may be something linking a new location? Although it's more likely we use the other pillars that are there... how didn't we notice this before!

Well I would once again point out that the trailer came out 5 months before the game's release (when it wasn't even finished yet) and it was a trailer for the main game, not DLC.

Normally I'd agree but everything was different, completely. Maybe it is a teaser of the DLC, us not having the game we wouldn't know the wiser and after playing I forgot about it. Others probably did too.

But it's in the realm of possibility and likelihood that you are right, Bungie didn't go Gold until a month before Launch with Reach.

It really wasn't. Half the stuff in the trailer was just stuff from Desmond's Journey and the rest was just a different design of Animus Island.

The only way that would make sense is if those 3 pillars at the center with that one pillar floating above teleports you to that wierd location(that is if the dlc turns it into a portal thingy) in the trailer ....which is cleary biased speculation but other than that i believe that the trailer just showed you the concept of desmond's journey so they don't spoil anything...

I've played games with weirder sounding achievements. Also, Trueachievements don't list achievements on their site unless certified from an MS source. x360A did the same earlier today. It is legit.

02-15-2012, 01:56 AM
These achievements all sound like they revolve around Subject 16 to me. I would not be surprised if they are his memories from his time with the Assassins, through his capture and imprisonment at Abstergo until his death, and even after. Crossing the River Styx really sounds like something Subject 16 would do on his way to the "afterlife". A lot of my opinions are based on my limited knowledge of the leaked audio.

GLHS
02-15-2012, 10:36 AM
I agree. The leaked audio paired with those 2 repaired pillars equals this. Super stoked!

stefman6987
02-15-2012, 04:31 PM
i doubt it will be the first person desmond sequences, what more could they add to it.. i recon it will be those 2 pillars but it will be exactly what the leaked audio has told us, most likely get to play as clay ( maybe he uploaded his memories in the animus so only desmond can view them just like the glyphs ) look at the achievements "impress warren vidic" in the audio SPOILERS clay was talking to vidic heaps.. SPOILER ENDS. Reach the animus memo... maybe the moment when 16 left the glyphs? just suggestion...

The developers at Ubisoft have really lost focus at this point with Assassins Creed, once ACB came about and they took their focus off of the story to focus on other areas, the results have been mixed.

Now I dont know how Ubisoft doesnt know this...but the first-person Desmond animus sequences imo were one of the least favorite parts of the single-player campaign. I am sure many people feel the same way. And nwo they are releasing more of this? We already freed Desmond out of the Animus, how can there be possibly more to this? More single-player Ezio would have been fine, but to introduce another animus sequence when it doesnt fit and is not liked clearly shows Ubisoft has lost focus.

On a side note, I expect Assassins Creed 3 to be a first person shooter at this point (with guns, care packages and using shotguns from inside of haybales when an enemy comes close) *sigh*

Don't really know what you are talking about but how can you bash on the story? ACB story wasn't that rich for obvious reason (they clearly didn't want to give the players all the answers by now and keep these for the last and final chapter i Desmonds story) but it was anything but bad. And speak for yourself in you opinion on the first player sequences of the game. I found them enjoyable and quite refreshing from the other parts of the game. And last I checked they weren't mandatory. Ever stop to think that these may be Clay sequences and not Desmond?

I don't even gonna comment on the last bit of your post seeing as it was clearly a joke. Hopefully.

The last thing I want as single-player DLC is more sequences in the style of the God-awful Desmond's Journeys. Seriously Ubi, if that's what you have in store for people like me who care not one bit about the multiplayer, then I am truly insulted. Since you started ripping off The Matrix, I don't care that much for the story any more either to be honest. AC is all about the gameplay now, gameplay that, until Revelations, was largely faultless. And now there's the chance that you're going to serve up and expect me to pay for what was easily one of the worst aspects of Revelations. Why don't you go the whole hog and try and sell me extra Den Defence missions?

The thought that the woefully empty single-player side of Revelations is to be padded by this rubbish is, frankly, disgusting.

I've noticed that there has been a "Season Pass" for the PC version of Revelations available for sale at GameStop:

http://www.gamestop.com/pc/dlc/assassins-creed-revelations-season-pass/98570

It's supposed to give you access to all of the Revelations DLC at 20% off the full price, and it costs $22.99. Doing the math, that would mean the original price of all the DLC is $28.74. That seems like an odd price, so let's just even it out to $29. Subtract $4 for the Ancestors DLC and $10 for the map pack, and you're left with $15. So there's a chance the new DLC will either cost $15, or there are combinations of remaining DLC that costs $15. I'm betting on the singleplayer DLC being a large package of content for $15.

*** SPOILER WARNING ***

Also, the achievement list now shows the 2 Secret Achievements:

The Loop (25): Experience the loop
Breaking the Loop (50): Break the loop, escape the cycle

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/game/assassins-creed-revelations/achievements/

Both achievements show the Infinity symbol, the second one with it being broken. I wonder if Subject 16 broke out of some kind of loop by killing himself...

swiftkinfe
02-17-2012, 12:32 AM
Break the loop?

Didn't 16 experience a total collapse of his ancestors genetic memory? As he told Desmond the ancestors would cave in on one another? This opens the possibilitys of multiple diffrent ancestors we could see briefly. We may not play as them but if we do who knows it could be pretty cool.

its cool but it is unlikely..i doubt he would program useless stuff in the animus...especially since nothing thus far has been useless but cool idea if we saw his mind collapse and briefly see the environment mutate infront of his eyes as he goes into that bleeding effect trip....

it's not because the DLC will arrive after we finished the game a thousand times that this mean that its events need to happen after the end of the game, once you install the DLC they'll follow the chronological order of the events in the game, Desmond Journey was part of his experience inside the black room, so they are meant to be played while Desmond is inside the black room (before he achieve the Sync Nexus)... and if Desmond's 1st person missions don't fit, why Ezio's missions would fit?! He (Desmond) already achieved the Sync Nexus, meaning that Ezio already showed him everything he must see about his life, so according to what you say, it wouldn't make sense to have more missions with Ezio because according to the game if we were able to achieve the Sync Nexus, this means there's nothing more to show about him...

and don't get me wrong, I hate those 1st person missions as much as you do, but say that they don't fit in the game just because you don't like them is wrong....

Boys and girls,

There's perfect flow to the achievements: possible *SPOILERS*

Meet your maker - basically means you die
Cross STYX - I'd think you escape death here, as Charon carries you over to the land of dead, so if you need to cross it by yourself it is most likely coming back from the dead

*SPOILERS*

The Loop - most likely you get stuck in the whole die/resurect cycle
Breaking the Loop - you either remain dead or come back

tarrero
02-17-2012, 03:31 PM
SPOILERSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!





Even though Desmond achieved Nexus with Ezio, but there is still a way in which we can see other memories: Through sixteen, they do share Ezio as a common ancestor, so who knows.....

And about the meaning ot the trophies, I think about two possibilites:

Find out about lucy and why she had to die
Or that some of sixteen´s story will be shown...

I do. First of all they're SP DLC and if the length of its predecessors are anything to go on they'll be at least as long as the entire Desmond's Journey. Second, one of them isn't even regarding Desmond, but S16. That alone is enough reason to change the format.
