Developers of AC3 have said that you can choose two paths of clothing customization for Connor, no more just Dying Clothes but also completely changing them without having to go through a cave mission..
Colonial or Native. Which one of these paths are you going to take?

Are you more excited for all the new mechanics in the cities or the Frontier?

A little off topic to the title but do you think we will be able to hunt animals on horseback, because there is no way you would be able to catch a deer on foot unless you are speedy with the bow. Also, who thinks the rope dart can be used for hunting?

Aw man, the Colonial outfit has persuaded me to want to dress like a colonial in AC3.
I am much more interested in the Frontier over the cities, mainly because we've all experienced the cities before. The few new things we've seen aren't that big of a change to make me extremely excited.
I don't see how a rope dart would work on horseback. Catching an animal the way you describe seems pretty brutal and random, maybe even borderline 'animal abuse'.

Rephrased the last sentence to make it seem less abusive, This is the outfit you must be talking about and it does seem pretty cool, we have a colonial and naval outfit but we still have to see what the native outfits look like.

Not questioning the legitimacy of this statement, but when did they say this? I don't remember hearing this from Ubisoft, just from other fans.

That said, I'd probably go with the native theme. Just to mix up the usual "white hooded robe" look.

I remember seeing the statement in one of those written down interviews near when AC3 was first announced.
I too would go for native,but native or colonial for me it must always have a hood.

This 'Colonial Assassin' pre-order outfit is a bit weirdly named since it looks more Native-influenced than even the main/official outfit

Earrings? U sure it wasn't his little ponytail? Never saw a screen with him wearing any earrings

I said Colonials, not Colonial. Patriot can also be used to identify the 'MERICANS! By the way, I am not even sure if Colonials was used to describe them, but it sounds cool.
I mean...should we not have a Loyalist path aswell? :nonchalance: I imagine it would be more...formal, if that makes any sense.

Colonial is a time period not a word for people, What i mean by colonial is basically a more modern european clothing so its basically patriot and loyalist clothing whereas Native is more traditional indian clothing.

I know, but it sounds cool. So I used it.
There is a difference between Colonial clothing of the time and Loyalist clothing.
Loyalists were more...formal, and red *Obviously*
Colonial was less formal, they did not even have a uniform until late into the war, it would be European-ish, but look less formal than loyalist.
Native American clothing is well...Native American clothing.

I think in this context, they're just using "colonial" to refer to the clothing of the European colonists in general. Old World vs. New World. Native clothing will probably consist of more fur and feathers, and the colonial clothing will consist of more leather and fabric. We're not talking specifically about the colonial military.

I think the outfit we see as of now, is the Native.

True, hopefully they will remove it as they still have two months.
I personally will probably go with the Native upgrades because i prefer the traditional "One with the land" look.

If the game will indeed have such an option, I'll probably go for a more colonial look on my first playthrough and a more native one on the second playthrough. I think a colonial look would really help with the immersion, when you're not sticking out like a sore thumb.

Probably go with whatever looks the most like what Connor would probably wear depending on how the story is going at the time for me.

I'm looking forward to the Frontier more than the Cities.

I see no reason why Connor won't be able to hunt animals while on horseback. Especially with the bow. Natives were known for being very good with their bows while on horseback i believe. I also see no reason why he couldn't use the momentum of the horse to use the ropedart either.

I'm taking the native path. :)
It's horrible what has been done to them on both the colonial side and British empire side and besides that, i like their view on life much more. They are much more one with nature and the earth.

Wow, I'm really disappointed about the Colonial assassin outfit. I'm so glad I ordered the Digital Edition where I get other things like extra missions to make up for it. If I was going to order any other edition, I'd have gone for the one with the Colonial outfit because the concept art looked so cool. I would have been extremely pissed if I ended up paying for that and getting this instead.

I have to disagree. I'd rather have the crew be permanent, scripted characters with dialogue and individual roles and personalities. I'm getting a bit tired of the "recruit generic citizens who will never speak to you again" formula. If it was like Mass Effect, where your recruited people are actually characters, then I'd be okay, but I doubt they're going that far in-depth.

Yeah, it's a bit of a let down. Even for the people who complain about the Assassin's hood not making sense anymore will be disappointed because it has a giant Assassin logo on the hat. To answer your question: Yes I am. I'm not full 100% Native of course, I'm sure I have some European blood in me. I wasn't born on a reservation either but I have some relatives that were. I even have some relatives that speak their native languages which is pretty cool.

It seems ra-doon-ha-gay-doon is correct. The only thing I could tell you is that you're probably supposed to say it quickly and fluidly. Most natives I know say names like that.

Alex Hutchinson pronounces it ro-dawn-hah-kay-dawn, but I dunno if that's actually how it's pronounced.
