Great stuff. Reminds me of a History channel documentary. Could do without the dramatic movie announcer though "Next time on Inside Assassin's Creed III" Looks like the cities are going to be even more accurate than ever.

Great video. I'm downloading it right now in HD to spot all the secret stuff, already noticed Desmond

It's also great that they got finally got an expert to say RatonhnhakÚ:ton name. Sounds great :D

Love Noah Watts' voice, they casted him perfectly

Did I see yellow leaves in one scene? :D Looks like fall season is in the game too! :D

Saw Washington and perhaps his voice (when he says "it's one thing to declare an independence"?)

The quick shot of some character's face with brown and white hair (2 versions), was that Washington or Lee? :confused: Or someone else

Slayer_WTF
08-22-2012, 05:37 PM
Omg, i see Desmond.

SixKeys
08-22-2012, 05:45 PM
Now this is what I've been waiting for! Ratohnhake:ton is even more difficult to pronounce than I thought. :nonchalance: And I spotted a glimpse of Desmond in the first minute. He had something on his back that looked like a crossbow.

BTW, it's incredible what a dfiference bad video compression can make. The footage here looks so much crisper and more detailed than in the videos Ubisoft has released on their channel. Look at the texture on Connor's clothes in the scene with the bear.

Noah sounded great. Sounded like a younger Connor due to some drop in bass from his voice.

Same clothes ? Yeah. Same posture ? I don't think so, he doesn't seem as ridged.

SixKeys

Unlikely. He's got his white hoodie back because he's outside the Animus Black Room again, but his facial model will probably be closer to ACR than ACB.

08-22-2012, 06:23 PM
Ah, we finally get the Dev Diaries. :)

The Voice Actor they picked sounds real cool, (though I have absolutely no idea what he said in that dialogue :P), perhaps he was recording a segment for Connor's younger days?

I missed the spot of Desmond during the vid, i'm glad someone got a screenshot, i never would have caught it.

And we FINALLY got to see what the AnvilNext editor looks like, it's just a **** shame all the text for the buttons and tabs were a bit blurry, and it's a shame that that is probably all we'll ever see of the level editor/charactor testing environment. I've always wondered which sculpting software they used for adding high-detail, now i know they use Zbrush (I'm not really familiar with it, but i have played around with mudbox, which is similar)

I can't wait for the next vid, only 10 weeks until release now (for the console versions, another 3 weeks after that for the PC version (though i'll still have to wait :/)

Glad to see the dev diaries have finally returned in some form, this is what I like to see. ;) I appreciate the little snippets of gameplay and cutscenes too, since they get me that little bit more excited without giving much away.
Looking forward to learning a bit about Native American culture, too. :D

I'm guessing the thing on Desmond's back is a silenced weapon. Maybe a modern composite crossbow.

08-22-2012, 07:15 PM
Back in the day I said


During the boston gameplay he could be 17 - 18 years old, if he was born on 1755. Also ,it is been stated that connor joined the order on 1770, agaiin, if he is born on 1755, he will be 14/15 years old by then,seemingly matching that screen/concept/bullshot.

Pure speculation of course.

May be I was not that wrong hehe, however I say it again: Pure speculation, time will tell.....

30 hrs of total gameplay...Well that means about 35-40 hrs of gameplay for me because AC is like the only game that I can just goof off, run around, and climb stuff for no apparent reason for hours and have fun doing it. Not to mention the time I just rotate the camera around and just sit there on a viewpoint or something and just take in the view of the city and frontier.

It must have been, everything else in the video looks awesome.


Also, if you look at that first clip of Connor running through the battle of Bunker Hill, he's got a musket on his back :confused: I thought they said those were just spur-of-the-moment things like the spears? Use it once, then drop it.

Remember, one of the unlock-able weapons from the SP DLC is a flit-lock musket, and there's no point in unlocking a weapon if you can only use it once. I think what they meant in regards to muskets, is that you can pick them up/steal them from guards whenever you want, and can carry them around with you, like you could with regular and small weapons in AC2-R, and remember, in ACB and ACR we got the ability to carry heavy weapons permanently, where as in AC2 they were just "pickup, use, then drop" weapons.

Yeah you can really enjoy AC games , 30 hours gameplay is lenght of main quests probably, and there is plus lot of hunting,climbing and side quests that you can do. Not to mention few systems that they didnt reveal.

The description of the DLC says it's a musket, but the picture they provided is clearly a pistol. I thought it was just mislabeled.

Can someone explain to me in terms of gameplay hours, what is a short, medium and long campaign? In the video they said the single player would be 30 hours, is that long or average? And how long is it compared to previous AC games?

dex3108BL
08-22-2012, 08:19 PM
If it is really 30 hours that is more than double than previous games are. But i think it is something like 20 hours for main story rather than 30 hours.

08-22-2012, 08:24 PM
Nice to see the AC franchise we all know being talked about in ways it should be talked about.

Are these from Ubi or are they a joint thing between Gamespot and Ubi, or just something Gamespot has put together?

Well...a short game like the Call of Duty campaign..Is about 4-5hours

A average game lengh is about 12-15+ hours

And anything above 25 hours is a long game...I hope I got it right :P

must be john pitcairn, that guy from the gameplay trailer

im a bit skeptic about 30hrs lentgth... if its 30hrs for JUST main story than im sold !
(ac2 was 17-19)
and i think connor looks 19-24 in the boston demo.. it takes places in 1773 sooo connor was born 1749 (spec.) and we see him first at the age of 4 in 1753 (spec.) sounds logical, a small segment in 1753 probably how the village burns and what happens afterwards...

This seems about right. Most games today are rarely 20+ hours long. So I would say anything over 20+ hours is long. 12-15 hrs seems to be the avg. game length for most games. To me, short is anything under 12 hrs.

I think they said they removed a hidden blade that could come fully out on a chain and be used as a hook, a rope dart was used instead to replace it, and a rope dart is perfectly capable of performing that move

First of all, that was AWSOME!!!!

If you look in 6:17 you can see that the rope dart is used in combat too!

i dont remember where it was (if was) claimed that we see him right from birth, but your theory does not make sense since the game starts 1753 while he "was" born 1755,
the 1755 date was never confirmed and it was just a typo in the weapons trailer...

if he was born 1755 that means hes supposed to be 18 in the boston demo

I'm sure some of the stuff is from the alpha stage while other bits are from a more advanced stage. The textures look bad in some shots and brilliant in others.

I don't care about how many hours the devs say the game is, I always end up spending almost double the amount just goofing around and exploring different areas. As long as there's plenty to look at and to do, I'm happy. :)

ithe 1755 date was never confirmed and it was just a typo in the weapons trailer...When was it confirmed it was just a typo?

Many people are their full height at 18. And we never clearly see his face in that demo.
Besides, most of the soldiers he's going to fight were probably not much older than 18. Back then the idea of being a teenager did not exist. You went straight to adult.

Calvarok

They put a beard on him, and gave him wrinkles. I think it did the job well enough. It's not uncommon for people to look mature at 17.

True. I thought they aged Ezio pretty well in AC2 to be honest... Paler skin, facial hair, wrinkled brow, deeper voice... What more do you want? I actually think he looked older in the end of AC2 than he did in ACB.

i dont remember where it was (if was) claimed that we see him right from birth, but your theory does not make sense since the game starts 1753 while he "was" born 1755,
the 1755 date was never confirmed and it was just a typo in the weapons trailer...

The 1755 date was not a typo, unless somewhere, the Devs stated that it was a typo, which i'm pretty sure they haven't. I believe it was said somewhere (either in an article or interview) that the game starts before Connor is born. Maybe it'll just be one moment (Like ezio's birth in 1459), and then we skip ahead to 1755 for Connor's birth, i dunno.

But why would game start 2 years before Connors birth(if the 1755 date is corect)?

I would trust the 1755 number more, since it came directly from Ubisoft (even if it was unintentional). I can easily see how the 1753 number could have gotten screwed up by a third party. If Ubi said something like "the game spans 30 years (meaning approximately 30 years) from Connor's birth until 1783," some games reporter could have done the math and wrote an article saying "the game runs from 1753-1783," even if the devs didn't literally mean 30 years on the dot. 28 years is close enough.

If it was a simple typo. Why didn't they just put the correct date on the video when they edited it? Instead of completely removing the date altogether....

what i remember is this:

they never said it was 1755
then one day they put up the connor weapons trailer in ubisoft youtube channel, in this trailer it said born 1755
afterwards this trailer was removed and put on back
look:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WLCB7qViI3M&amp;feature=plcp
its gone...
now logically:

why would they remove it? two options:

a. misleading accurate typo

b. true accurate date, accidentally put in there

i think they B doesnt make sense according to all confirmed info we got, and they didnt mention it anywhere but jsut changed it like it never happened, thats whats done when a typo appears!

like with altair and ezio at first we didnt know their birth date, it may be something the dev want to keep in the shadows for a while too

and i seriously doubt we'll play the first glimse of 2 years as connor's father, or perhaps as CHARLES LEE o.0

i think they B doesnt make sense according to all confirmed info we got, and they didnt mention it anywhere but jsut changed it like it never happened, thats whats done when a typo appears!We'll see. You believe it was totally a typo, I believe otherwise. Neither of us will convince the other :p

But just to add - this video wasn't just on Ubisoft channel, it was sent to the press: OXM for example http://www.oxm.co.uk/40304/interviews/assassins-creed-3-the-most-rpg-like-assassins-creed-so-far/

Umm, if you got through AC2 fine, where characters often switch to Italian for entire sentences, you'll be alright with this game. But from the sounds of it Mohawk isn't going to be translated at all, so you'll need it for some scenes.

Speaking of "cross". At the end of Brotherhood, Juno says the cross darkens the horizon. Does anyone else think this could be Daniel instead of Lucy? Daniel Cross could become the main antagonist for Desmond during AC3 so maybe the developers will allow the players to see things through his ancestor at one point in the game. It would be something different

GLHS
08-23-2012, 03:04 PM
Omg that was awesome. I love behind the scenes stuff like this. Can't wait for the rest of it!

My notes on comments:

That's definitely Desmond, and it looks like his AC:B model with the bag on his back. However, the thing in it is still gonna be up for debated b/c, while the map protector makes sense, the pic is a little bit too blurry to accurately make out what it is. They were supposed to be finding the Apple to aid them in finding the other temples, hence the map. They very easily could've translated it onto paper during his time in the Animus in AC:R. It very well could also be a type of portable Animus or something else, but it seems it will be significant to him no matter what it is.

Yay for cheetahs/leopards/whatever it is!

The textures do look really bad in some areas, indicating the gameplay is yet again from different stages of development. There's a part where you can see a tree, and the bark looks fantastic, but the leaves on the tree next to it look horrific. It's amazing how one thing can looks so great, and in the same shot, something else can looks so bad. And ugh, that horse is absolutely horrible. I can understand the undercompression, but some of bad textures we've seen can't be excused away that easily. So hopefully, all of that will be polished out upon release.

As far as the dagger/blade, they already confirmed that the hidden blade will spin around outward into a usable dagger. That's what it looks like to me.

Connor's birth date argument: It was confirmed the game runs from 1753-1783, and that Connor is born in 1755, so Idk why this is still a debate. There was no typo or mistake in any of the dates. The 2 years before his birth has yet to be revealed as to why and how we will be witnessing them, but we will indeed experience them in some way. I am very eager to play it and find out, as it has been one of the more curious and elusive spoiler teases they have given us.
http://assassinscreed.wikia.com/wiki/Assassin%27s_Creed_III
"The game will be set between 1753 and 1783, and will focus on a new ancestor, Connor Kenway (http://assassinscreed.wikia.com/wiki/Connor_Kenway), who fought during the American Revolution (http://assassinscreed.wikia.com/wiki/American_Revolutionary_War)." Even IF his birthday was a typo, it is still confirmed that the game starts in 1753, so the earliest he can be born anyhow is 1753.

And finally, I love the new snippets of combat and gameplay that we got to see. The rope dart into uppercut move towards the end is just amazing, and is so reminiscent of MK and Scorpion's "Get over here!" I love it!

Well to me it looks pretty similar to animus room in AC1.... I could be Desmond just "explaining" the whole situation just like he did on previous games, but no one knows at this point.

Yes, but Desmond did not have the bag, and it looks like a different room. Slightly smaller than that of AC1. Maybe Desmond must infiltrate in one of the seats dell'Abstergo? :)

Can we discuss a bit about the soundtrack? In the past I did doubt Lorne Balfe, I thought everything would sound too dramatic, but after hearing the different snippets I couldn't be more wrong, I think it sounds great! Especially the native singing and flute, sounds a lot like Jesper IMO

I really LOVED the native chant accompanied by the flute at 3:09. Remember that Balfe was hired to compose the cinematic part of the soundtrack. whereas Jesper the ambient one. It was unfair to claim "AC3 soundtrack will be too hollywoodesque, I hate balfe blah blah blah" Without have not heard it....

Slayer, you have a point there, though I still think that thing looks very similar to an animus.

If that IS the Animus, which I think it is, and if that is Lucy wearing her Abstergo clothes/skirt, I am thinking that this is TWCB showing Desmond a scene from the past, in which he can move around, almost like a ghost.

I think that Desmond needs to go to Abstergo to get something (maybe to hack the satellite or get the apples of eden), and is using an eagle sense to see Lucy's sillouette taking the path Desmond has to follow to reach his destination. As didn't Ezio have this ability to follow people who were no longer there so he could find them? and if Ezio could do it, surely Desmond could with his TWCB 'powers' amped up nearly as high as they can go.

Well there are 4 Dev Diaries. One has come out now in August. There are 2 months before release (Holy crap that is actually so close!). There is Pax Prime and Eurogamer Expo left. This is just pure guessing but maybe number 2 released at Pax Prime, then 3rd at Eurogamer at the end of September, and then the last one a week before release? There is no official schedule, and tbh, it is better that way.

Also, I found a new weapon! PEBBLES!!!

How do we always end up seeing the weirdest things in blurry screencaps every time new info like this pops up? I remember last year when Revelations came out and they were slowly revealing bits of the image of Alta´r standing next to Ezio, people were seeing things like eagles, ships, the Apple and all kinds of stuff that turned out to be nothing at all.

It's impossible for us to deduce a single thing from that one blurry shot of Desmond. It's clearly Desmond and he's standing close to or inside some kind of structure, but beyond that? Anyone who says they can clearly see Lucy in the picture or that the thing on Desmond's back is a weapon are just imagining things. I love a good speculation as much as the next person, but I'd prefer it to be based on something we can actually confirm, like the clear shot from the recording session that RatohnhakeFan posted where it said "Connor at 14". Not this silly "I see a sailboat" chasing of ghosts.

No I won't because if you kept up with the previous posts, you'll find that I agreed that it could possibly be Lucy, BUT I also agree with SixKeys that you can't overlook into something to the point that it leads you start imagining stuff up. On the other hand you could potentially feel stupid when the game's released if turns out that it wasn't a weapon on his back or that he was standing next to an animus. For now, it's all speculation. Hopefully we can talk about something different instead of going on about one thing?

This. I want to have a few surprises left when I play the game for myself. Things like Dev dairies that give you information on the game without spoilers while also showing lightning quick glimpses of new footage to keep excitement, are the best way to go until release IMO. If they have to show something new at PAX, I would prefer them to show multiplayer footage and tell us roughly how the multiplayer 'storyline' works with the single player quest.

It's very interesting!
I just wanna see more about Desmond. I mean after all, he's the protagonist of the series yet every game keeps us waiting way too long even watch a single cutscene of Desmond and his colleagues. Assassin's Creed II and Brotherhood had a good role in showing a nice and somewhat longer experience with Desmond and Revelation had the best story, gameplay and most satisfying ending theme which wasn't too short like the rest.
