Going to ask about difficulty settings. Hopefully I'll get an answer.

Might try and ask about Connor's date of birth, but I expect a 'no comment', if he answers at all.

"There is a huge amount of content outside the main story, much of which we haven't revealed yet and you will hopefully only find when the game is released! Each district in both cities has its own sub-narrative for example. That said, we tried not to repeat any content from previous games, so the guilds in their previous form are gone."

YESYESYES. That sounds so amazing, sub-narrative for each district.. Oh yes. I'm wondering whether this will include the MP characters considering that at least two of them would make for a very nice side-story.

Q: "I'm all for historical accuracy in the AC series but Since only British enemies have been shown so far in trailers and gameplay , can you specify any specific examples of non-British enemies to put our tea drinking minds at rest?"

A: "I won't give a name because it will spoil some twists and turns in the story, and in fact, we have yet to show a real assassination target in any of our footage or trailers! Rest assured, that both patriots and loyalists will feel the steely edge of your blade, and that if you really think about it, until the revolution is finished... everyone is British. It's a colony!! Enjoy your tea."

ALL OF MY YES.

Q: So far all of the videos and screenshots we've seen of the game have shown Conner in the same Assassin garb. Do we get to upgrade or change that look with armor and/or dye in the same way we've been able to with Ezio over the last few games?

A: There are both many contextual costume changes and upgrade options in stores. Decorate away!

some people are paid to make stupid questions otherwise the entire game would be spoiled before its release or the whole interview would have only "I can't answer this/that" kind of answers, at least that is what I force me to believe to still have some faith in humanity by the end of the day... lol

This confirms that the fort in the Frontier-demo was not story-related but rather similar to Borgia towers. I read this in a German gaming magazine and thought they made it up, but now it actually sounds very legit..

He said we can dye the outfit and make adjustments, he never directly stated that their would be upgrades. He also didn't mention the contextual outfit changes.

Q: Are the "secret locations" of AC3 famous buildings as in the previous games or rather natural features such as caves?

A: Two good guesses, neither of them are right. ;)
So he answered my question but didn't really answer it. Now I'm really interested though :D

"I'm curious as to what lengths the ACIII team went to to ensure that Native Peoples are represented as accurately and intelligently as possible. I'm sure there was loads of thoughtful research, but I'm curious to hear if you guys went the extra mile at all. Did you visit any reservations? Speak with any people of native descent about their history in their eyes? It's clear that the role of Native Peoples will be of major importance in ACIII, given the very nature of the game's lead hero, and I would hate to see yet another cultural group be degraded into stereotypes in a game. What have you guys done to ensure that this doesn't happen? "

Answer: "Great question! We tried as hard as possible to be respectful and accurate. We did visit many local communities, we hired advisors in those communities to work with us, we had parts of the game translated into the local languages so you can hear it in-game, we hired a voice actor for Connor who is himself half native American, and we recorded both dialog and music with the local communities. I really hope you like it. I love it. "

He means there will be some gameplay features that'll play a major part in the game but they will not reveal them before release. Think stuff like the Guilds from AC2/ACB/ACR or the naval freeroam.

I asked Alex about the animals in the game, but looks like it didn't get asked. :( I wanted to know if you could interact with them in other ways besides hunting or if there would be different colors or breeds (of dogs, for example).

I doubt that's one of the things he meant. The economy system has already been mentioned before, if not in-depth. We know it will mostly be based on hunting and trade. I think there will be new systems besides the economy that haven't been talked about in any form at all.

Yeah i Know. I had some other interesting questions about ...
1. rooftop gameplay -> How the guards would interact on the rooftops
2. the speed of the recovery of the healthbar
3. the free-aim option ?
4. How will you be able to interact within the trees -> one way road or a wide variation of routes!

Too bad he didn't answer them...
There were to much the same and story-related question... which Alex will not answer before the release.

I honestly have no idea what the three unrevealed systems could be. I won't bother trying to guess. At least we will be completely surprised at three major additions to the game when we all playthrough it for the first time.
