Hello guys.

And 'since I released the first artwork that I make myself this question: Assassin's Creed 3 there will be manual aim with the bow or it will be automatic?
Since the E3 video is clearly seen that the target is set to "automatic", but I was wondering if the game you can choose which mode to use targeted.

Sorry for my English, but I'm not American / English. :D

It seems like there is a crosshair once he pulls out the bow, even if he's locked on so i'm thinking free aim will be included.

I think it has been confirmed as autolock sadly. But if I remember correctly you can hit different parts of the animal. I wanted the pistols to be autolock (since they are close combat and mostly used by quickfiring) and the bow to be a more long range stealth weapon with free aim. I think that would have made the wapons more different and more fun overall. But whatever, it's no biggie for me.

Some Q&A with Alex Hutchinson. I'll see if I can find it.

Couldn't find it. Maybe I was wrong? I'm pretty sure I've heard that though. Weird.

I hope that there is free aim with the bow. I think it would add a lot to the game. Maybe an option for free aim or auto.

Starting to believe that only a member of Ubisoft can answer my question. :(

I bet it'll be a "body part aiming system" where it locks on to one person, but we can move the crosshair to the head, leg, arm, etc.

Hutchinson mentioned that the team liked the idea of a Master Assassin always hitting his target, but seemed to suggest that you might be able to move the cross-hair once it locks. It seems to be similar to the aiming system in Red Dead, but if you have nobody to lock on, I don't think you go into free aim.

So my brain isn't completely useless then. U remember where he said that? I can understand the decission as it fits better with the "always in motion" philosophy of the game. It could very well be better taht way.

A combination. Think Red Dead/GTA IV style auto-aim.

They're both pretty long and I don't really feel like looking through both of them now, but it's definitely mentioned somewhere in there.
