DON'T HATE ME. I like giving out news. And this actually seems legit seeing as AC's twitter retweeted it.

"Tonight 6:30/5:30c on #xplay: new footage from The Battle of Chesapeake Bay in@Ubisoft's upcoming blockbuster@assassinscreed 3!"

Source: https://twitter.com/xplay/status/237911939358003200

Now remember, don't get too hyped for this. This does tell me something though. This is the first time that the Gamescom demo will be shown (even if it is shown badly with camera cuts etc. This must mean that we should get a walkthrough soon, as Xplay will be the first ones showing the Gamescom demo to the public.

So what is xplay exactly?

Can we see it on the internet or is it TV only...

I still wouldn't get your hopes up, unless Mr Shade can confirm this is actually game play and not just the trailer?
It could be showing the Gamescon trailer again, which I believe is a trailer for "The Battle of Chesapeake Bay"?

Well this should be interesting.
Since I assume it's this battle: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_the_Chesapeake
it means more naval gameplay. I look forward to seeing Connor's role in the battle.

Edit: Oh it says footage. Never mind, I'll keep my hopes down.

We saw one Naval battle, but with like no HUD. The Gamescom demo had the HUD up which I suspect that Alex will say what everything is when it officially comes out. This time it does seem legit, if it is a trailer, I will rage tweet them from all of us :)

I'll believe it when I see it. If I've learned anything from Ubisoft it's never to get excited until I see it.

Ubisoft have no control over how external websites market gameplay footage given to them...

I do know a few new videos will be appearing officially -soon - however I am not at liberty to say what they are or what they contain.

Well if I give a date.. people expect it at 12:01am on that day.. and we see 'OMG!!! they delayed it' all day...


So 'Soon' it is ;)

My guess is that Shade is referring to the Battle of Bunker Hill demo...

I know its true...deny all you want Shade! We all already know that press has saw the footage, so I say we are next!

I just wouldn't make assumptions - since other people will start moaning should you be wrong ;)

Many seem to take rumour and speculation as fact.. and then I / Ubisoft get the blame when it's not what people 'expected' ;)

itll probably be this. The gamescom demo. There's a few vids up for a few days now. I didn't want to make a topic as I didn't think these would be up long.

Wouldn't "What will the animus 3.0 look like?" be a better thread for you to troll? At least you could do it on-topic there.

Well, as PAX starts a week from Friday I would guess it will be then. Ubisoft has a Panel scheduled for 4:30 PST on Friday in the Main Theater and will(most likely) be streamed. So, just gotta wait till then.

Anyway...

I'm guessing that Xplay didn't show anything [again] - so if this thread is not needed, it's getting locked..


Last chance to turn it around...
