I want horses back. I missed them in ACR, and if the new ancestor is Native American then he pretty much has to have a horse. How else are we going to travel up and down the Eastern Coast while enjoying the scenery?

I agree. It would also be nice to ride a horse and carriage around whenever ^_^

Not sure if it would be used as a mode of transport for people, but the following may make an appearance...

Railways were introduced in England in the Seventeenth Century as a way to reduce friction in moving heavily loaded wheeled vehicles. The first North American "gravity road," as it was called, was erected in 1764 for military purposes at the Niagara portage in Lewiston, New York.

I was wondering when railroads or vehicles in general came into play. I have images of an Uncharted 2 - esque battle scene on a train...minus the miniguns. Hopefully.

I agree I'd like them back too. They should def be there. Also I think horse and carriage would be awesome too or you could fast travel in one like in RDR. That would be sweet. This game is going to rock so hard. My love for AC is def returning.

Railroads came around in the early to mid nineteenth century and cars more like super late 19th century and more likely early 20th century. There were also not interstate highways until the 1950s-70s and cars didn't really become mainstream I would say until the 1920's in the U.S.

Me too want them back. Also, does anyone else feel AC 1's horses were the best?

A bit of horseback combat would be nice, not awkward sword fights but firing off a couple of potshots at groups with that snazzy bow and arrow could be cool.

I expect so. We did have crossbows doing that in ACB.

It'd be really good if you could set the horse running in one direction, allowing you to concentrate on aiming the bow, and then you take back the reins when you're done.
