Ok as we can see in this screen there will be rivers and there will be canoes

http://www.destructoid.com/hot-canoeing-action-in-these-assassin-s-creed-iii-screens-224427.phtml

Now, with that offcialy confirmed canoe with no details at all. What I am wondering is if there will be rapids on the rivers?, obviously there are rapids on many rivers and what not. It would kind of be cool to paddle through them without letting your canoe tip over. Also well there be waterfalls? obviously I want to be able to jump down waterfalls and dive but I wonder if I can canoe myself off of a waterfall from a river, it's not it's needed but nonethless the river may end up with a water falls, or maybe a feature maybe right before the waterfall edge you can run off the tip of the conoa and dive. either way I want waterfalls. I am just wondering how the rapids and the purpose of the canoe besides transportation. I also think there should be river flows, like some streams are faster if your on on side compared to the other and alot of rivers cut off into to diffrent paths.

I think the purpose of the canoe not only to do quest and transportation, I think there should be a challange to it, you will be able to paddle through rapids and how you paddle and control your boat determines if your canoe will tip or break, it almost makes it a challaning kayaking game, but really it makes paddling cano through rapids fun and a skillfull effort, choosing the right paths on the river instead of going into rock infest rapids over light rapids and etc.

There are all kind's of really cool rivers, Some rivers are, im gonna list a couple diffrent types of rivers and rapids

Canyon river, could be interesting for certin quest.

Nothing to serious here just a upbeat river stream with light rapids

I guess that would be kinda cool..
I'm into nature a lot, especially woods and mountains, so if they added something like this in the game, I fear I wouldn't be visiting cities!

I wish they showed canoeing in some demo's! They'll be something in the game just like the pictures you have shown no dout. we seen a water fall in the trailer ubi showed us at E3 well, it looked like one.

I wouldn't be surprised if Connor can do a leap of faith off a waterfall. Who knows. Maybe they will have a viewpoint at the top of one.

We know there are rivers and waterfalls, but I haven't heard anything about rapids. I've been hoping for some just for the fun of it, but also might make a cool chase breaker from guards, jumping in the river and letting the rapids carry you away. But I'm not getting my hopes up, not sure how plausible it is for the game engine. Although..there is waterfalls. Who knows about rapids at the moment? I have no answer.

If these pictures are in the game i would just go to them as Connor and enjoy the view... By the looks of that picture i agree there should be something involving rapids and a bit of a challenge but i wouldn't bet my life on it.

They could do a viewpoint that requires the right timing to get off of your boat, or fall to your death.

OP: I hope they do, although, it won't be very good for my social life :D i'm a canoeing enthusiast :P It is plausible that they will have some form of rapids too, because they'd already have a good water physics system laid out for the Navy missions.

Sounds like a great idea. Especially because I'm afraid that the Frontier could become boring after a while, due to the possibility that most of it looks similar.. Certain natural features and small towns could break this monotony though which I'm hoping for.

Using rapids to carry you away would probably either drag you below water or smash you against the rocks. Not a good idea :p Musket death is preferable.

I like those ideas a lot :)! I'm pretty confident there will be waterfalls in the game. And I hope we can canoe them for sure!

If they added the rapids and waterfalls I would like a "race" where you had to get to the bottom as quick as possible! That would be so fun!

Yeah it would be alot of fun, I realize we will see indians in the game and perhaps there be a big canoe influence because of that? and maybe even races. I really want rapid's, either way I am happy that there are rivers and canoes.

I know right that's what I said. hahahaha

Indians live in India. There likely won't be any Indians in this game.

I am pretty sure he means Native Indians/mohawk indians. The Indians that live off the land.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Native_Americans_in_the_United_States

"most of the respondents with an expressed preference refer to themselves asAmerican Indians or Indians"

If you do not trust wiki as a source ill find another source for you.



If your gonna troll at least make sense. In Texas we call them Indians, and in most western moves they will refer to them as "Indians'

Native Americans are the correct wording. I do not see your troll point unless I missed it?

Exactly, I do not know where he is going with that comment? I mean it was pretty obvious what I was talking Native Amercian Indians

Having rapids in the game would be amazing and something we haven't seen before in an Assassins Creed game. I can only imagine the doors this would open! But, we might be asking too much. Lets hope we aren't, though =)

That is by far a better Idea! with that canoe in the gameplay, yes the game with rapids would make it a lot more fun than just a boring static river.

True but what about DLC's Patches future games? obviously brotherhood and Revlations were not direct sequals and came out quick. They could use games like that to add features.
