What do you expect from glyphs / clusters of AC3? They will be more complex? Easier? Want to be structured differently or not?

Well I expect them to be different from before (they didn't want to change up things in ACR for nothing after all), but the general idea of logical puzzles revealing bits of info about historical/mythological events influenced by Assassins, Templars and TWCB I think we can expect to return.

If we have them at all - after all, they were made by S16, for his reconstruction, and with his apparent destruction, I can't think how they'd reintroduce them. We didn't have them in ACR remember (we got the Inception nonsense instead).

OK, I get that they don't want whole posts in caps, but do they really have to force us into lower case whenever a single word is?

Pretty sure Alex said there will be 3d puzzles in the q&a

They literally said they're going to reintroduce them, not made by S16 this time.

I really hope so!!!
It was stated in the gameinformer that the glyph puzzles would return.
Hereīs what it states:

THE TRUTH:

After the events of revelations, don't expect more mysteries from subject 16 anytime soon. But that doesn't mean the team is abandoning this popular concept entirely. "in relation to the puzzles, i'm a big fan of them" May says. "We want to scratch the same itch, but ideally in a way that is just as refreshing and exciting but will not be an identical copy-paste."

Now skip to 43:05 in this Q&A video.
He says there will be something like the glyph puzzles but not 2D.


BUT, i wanna point something out i can remember from ACR.

Listen to what Gabe says in this Q&A at 8:38

he literally says: "if you loved the puzzles & glyphs in AC2 and ACB, it's going to be nuts! The level of glyphs in ACR is well beyond what we had in ACB and even AC2"

Now watch this video:

Did you ever came across the glyphs and red letters in the actual Desmond journey? No.
I think they scrapped them. I hope they won't do the same with AC3.

this is the feature from which I`m expecting the most in this game... I love how they're able to make the AC universe much more richer using them, and I hope they don't use them just to answer pending questions but also to continue to add more to the game universe...

Interesting!!!!

In fact, I "think" that this time, the "glyphs" will involve Connor,.... I have always "theorized" that connorīs TWCB dna will come from his motherīs side and therefore, the mohawk tribe would have know about this "holy" places and stuff for centuries, so to me, it would be pretty cool if we could explore that "relationship" through "glyphs".

Hahaha, I'd never seen that before. Either they really did scrap some original content that was supposed to be in the game or Gabe is a professional liar. :D The Desmond segments weren't even puzzles, just platforming.

Either way, AC3 has been in development for close to 3 years. They've had plenty more time to figure out what they want to do and how they want to do it. I hope and trust that the new puzzles will be as thrilling as the ones in AC2 and ACB but different in style. In AC2 they were a joy, in ACB I was already starting to weary of the same rotating circles and morse codes.
