Watch an Achievement Hunter Let's Play vid and listen to Geoff Ramsay's laugh. Should help cure it.

I doubt it since her story takes place during the French and Indian war at a time when Connor was like 10.

She meets with Connor in either Liberation or AC3.

Seeing that pic, chances are it's AC3.

It's already confirmed they meet in Liberations. Nothing said about AC3 though as far as i know.

I doubt Desmond would end up having any African-American genes.

Probably won't have any love interest until sometime in later half of the game, perhaps in the time skip if there is one, as apparently we'll be playing Connor in the different time periods of his life.

Actually, Liberation begins in 1765, two years after the end of the French and Indian War. We don't know exactly how old she is at that point, but given that AC3 starts in 1753 with Connor's village being destroyed when he's this age- http://images4.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20120412191846/assassinscreed/images/thumb/e/e8/Ac3_ca_sp_08_connor.jpg/139px-Ac3_ca_sp_08_connor.jpg I'd say that would make him 20-25 in 1765. They're probably close to the same age.

Not likely IMO. She joins the Assassin Order in 1759, when Ratonhnhaké:ton is just 4 so she is most likely much older than him

BTW, is this a fan-pic or official???

Well, if it's just promo pic for the games, it doesn't have to be accurate. Nobody minds when Ezio and Altair were standing next to each other on ACR promo pictures, even though one was old and the other should be a skeleton at that point ;P

And... why not? If you're white, and you had one black ancestor about a dozen generations back, does it noticeably affect the way you look? No.

Nope not possible, she is definitely not Connor's love interest, because the writer of liberation said that she is not Desmond's ancestor.

Connor WAS NOT born in 1755. The game starts two years before that. The birthdate in that Connor trailer was either a mistake or an oversight that was later removed.

Cristina was Ezio's love interest for most of the games, and she wasn't Desmond's ancestor.

Just sayin'.

No it doesn't say that ;P It just says there will be some stuff before his birth (assuming the birth date was correct). It was discussed once already, many people thought that it could mean we would see some memories of his father or mother. But it could be just a short cutscene happening in 1753 for all we know

Perhaps it could be like an introduction to the game that illustrates Connor's mixed heritage.

Never really show his father's face, but have Connor narrating over how they met, fell in love and then conceived him. I suppose it could then show a scene "in the womb", which would let the audience hear his mother's heartbeat and the darkness of being inside her, before emerging out (being born) and introducing Connor by his Native American name as you see him being cared for before being handed over to her. (out of body perspective)

It could then show Connor's perspective as he opens his newborn eyes and looks up at his mother, cementing that parental bond between the two.

I can totally see them pulling something like this. Or a cut scene where his father (maybe Charles Lee) arrives in America in 1753 as a symbolic "welcome to new continent players!".

Though it seems that the game actually opens with the village destruction, at least if that's what Alex really meant (as in, the actual very first scene that plays, not just part of the big opening/prologue). So the 1753 memory may be accessed later in the game, like Christina memories. Or the village destruction is just pretty opening for a moment and then we start from 1753 actually. Like in Brotherhood where they showed the battle with Cesare as the opening.

If you think about it, both could happen.

AC2 showed you Ezio's birth, and then it skipped to him as a teenager. From the moment I described, it could then join up with Connor in a forest, hunting down an animal in his Native American clothes. Later, something could go wrong, like he sees the smoke in the direction of his home, and then returns back there to witness his village as burned to the ground.

After that, when you consider that the audience did see Connor's mother through his newborn eyes, it could drive home the feeling of injustice when he identifies her dead body amongst the wreckage.

Yeah, but it's supposed to be a propaganda piece showing how terrible the Assassins are, and Aveline is an Assassin. I think it's probably supposed to be a Christian cross, with no Templar affiliation.

It's possible that it's just decoration, but we don't know the plot yet. Aveline could turn out to be a Templar in the end, or maybe she's entirely fictional, created by Abstergo to show the assassins in a light that's beneficial to them.

Well, that would be disappointing :nonchalance: I've been hoping she'll appear in AC3 just as Connor is scheduled to appear in Liberation. Obviously a fictional character can't appear in the Animus while reliving memories as Desmond will be doing.

would be funny it ends up being shaun in an effort to see if he had an ancestor that could give the assassins a few more information that connor lacks ;)
