As much as I'd like to beleive this game has good graphics, you can't really judge the game's graphics based on off-screen footage like that, especially footage that short.

There's a bit with a wolf were he's wearing a different outfit, looks like it has some kind of cape.

And at least two parts where he's doing something with no hood.

looks cool.

Funny how they are like " amazing how we took core of the series and built everything else from scracth and threre's lots of new stuff" because that's what I expected them to do with every new assassins creed game. New setting, assassin and gameplay etc. The game shouldn't even be so big if it just wasn't brotherhood/revelations like spinoff.

Awesome screenshot. I'm fairly sure that's an early build though.

I wouldn't expect hood options peeps, I think the hood down in these is just early animation, if you look at the fact he just looks like Desmond / AC2 Ezio lol.

Amazing video, IGN definitely got a good scoop here.

EDIT : Anyone noticed how the jargon at the top says "max npc : 6/100" 1000 EH?!"

Also.. the engine is called Scimitar still, at the bottom left. Very early build methinks

Very good analysis. But Scimitar was used for AC1, why is it there for AC3? It can't be an old build because that's the newest version of HUD (as seen in the naval gamescom demo)

I'm not sure buddy. Might be the newest build, they just might not have renamed the engine from since they've updated it all. The core build will be the same, all built on Scimitar, then AC2's Anvil and so forth.

And AC2, so when they just started in like 2010, they still used AC2's engine due to anvil not being completed yet by then or something? Cause ACB and ACR use Anvil.

But AnvilNext was "built from the ground up" I don't understand why they would associate Scitimar with it, an engine all the way back from 2007. Unless...they didn't build it from the ground up? Pfft I'm not gonna start arguing any conspiracy theories :P

It looks to that in early concepts of Connor, he had a cape on his shoulder like Ezio.

OMGAWD. IGN's series already seems better than the other one :P. So the series starts 19th September, a day before the Tokyo Game Show!!

Which also leads me to think why not finish the first insider video series. Having the two series' overlap is weird.

OMG, Connor is wearing a bear/wolf/ skin at 1:10 ! :eek: I hated the fur on the Brutus armor in ACB, but in this time period it looks more fitting. I hope this customization option is in the game!

Dangit, I was just thinking to myself maybe I should already go dark at this point. But I don't want to miss these making-of videos. :(

Can I just ask - why the obsession with playing without the hood? Generally that is, not just you.

In AcB there's one mission that ezio is without the hood (the colisseum one i think) and ezio looked much more handsom then with hood. Same with the AcR glitch. Hood is nice for the mainplot but i wouldn't mind if i were able to put it on or off for specific situations. Just to add a bit of realism ya know :D

Playing without a hood on would be fun, but as shown in the Boston demo, Connor hides his face from guards when blending in by pulling his hood down further. I'd assume this is the reason all outfits will have some type of head-wear; to avoid making new animations. Or that blending animation could have simply been for the demo.

On the topic of the video, it is a little strange having two different "behind-the-scenes" series being released at the same time. I'm really hoping they won't reveal too much about the game how it is now, but solely what their initial ideas were and how they built the game.

He doesn't pull the hood down, he just covers the side view of his face..

But that doesn't mean it's the one in the screenshot.

The wolf isn't too slow that its easy to get away from. And as soon as you turn around its tries to jump on you. It will be easy to kill but not easy to avoid.

Is that at 0:52 the first glimpse at gameplay with the Pontiac War Club? Or just a very rough model for a musket?

Pretty sure it's a war club. I doubt the Pontiac one will be the only club in the game.

Should we sticky this thread? so that we can use one thread for all making of videos discussion. Instead of loads of threads cropping up when each video is released. Maybe rename the thread to 'IGN: AC3 making of videos discussion" or something, anyone else agree?

The video is already pinned in the inside AC3 video series - that covers both the Dev videos and making of.
