Since we only got one screenshot of Connor canoeing in ACIII back in march and never heard or saw anything about it again(as far as I know)

Is it possibly that they removed that feature or is just so minor that they thought they dont have to mention it again?:D

Does anyone know anything about that?:)

It's very minor. They probably just copy pasted it from AC2

Considering Ezio never used a canoe, I assume it will be a little bit differently designed animation wise.

Canoeing isn't that same as using a Gondola. We've already seen a screenshot of it anyway.

Considering he's sitting in the canoe, no.

I'm assuming he meant the mechanic and controls were copy-pasted. As for the canoe, I forgot about it and I hope it's not cut!!!

its probably there... canoeing is a native cultural characteristic, i believe

Again, he's sitting in the canoe. The mechanics inherently change from canoe to gondola.

Why? Because gondolas were steered by a punt pole, because the ground was always within reach and the boat had no rudder. Canoes don't use those, they use paddles, because the riverbed isn't always shallow enough, there was no reason to turn corners in rivers, and that's not what Native Americans used. That's why he's sitting.

Unless it's on rails, the controls would almost have to be different in order for that to work at all.

OP does have a point though. So many trailers and "making of" videos have been released and we've never seen the Canoe after that very early screenshot

Because it is almost same as in past AC titles.

I guess it's because it's not a ground breaking new feature for the franchise, they haven't taken time to show it off.
I doubt it's been cut (unless they came into some game play problems with it in Beta, but that seems unlikely). If it was already implemented well enough for them to take a screenshot of it, I think it's safe to say it's still in the game.

I seriously hope they just didn't show it because it's not a groundbreaking feature, I loved that screenshot and I love the idea that we can quickly travel the frontier across the rivers like that. I'm scared they took it out now that you guys mention it though, we've seen some huge waterfalls and maybe they felt it just didn't work if you could drop off of those and lose your canoe and/or die and restart somewhere else (if there are a lot of those big waterfalls that is).

No reason why it should be taken out. So its probably in there.

Can anyone who has the game confirm that canoeing is in the game? If not, I guess I will find out in the morning

you're probably not gonna get much feedback right now. anyone that has it is probably not gonna be hanging out on the forum just yet. regardless, i'm not sure it's that big of an issue is it? it's not gonna make you change your mind about buying it i hope.

btw, i haven't played it yet... but i'm fairly certain there's no three 6 mafia in Liberation... you know, in case you're curious. :cool:

I dont care much for canoe or gondolas. I just swim lol. Its eaier to just jump in/dive then swim no matter how far. The Revelation between the HQ and the huge map is a water which I swim all the time. LOVE SWIMMING FTW

hahaha, it was just a nickname given to me by my pledge brothers and it stuck. But not it's def not a game breaker. I'm picking the game up first thing in the morning as soon as target opens up.

hmm... interesting. i just got bored of swimming... especially in places like venice where i couldn't make a jump after discovering i ran out of rooftops... and got stuck swimming through a canal. :nonchalance: don't get me wrong, i love the option though... particularly since the option is NOT being able to swim or instant death because water = death... but you know... swimming for fun? not so much. i think if there was an option to explore and dive deeper, i might enjoy it more.

It took me ages to remember Ezio using the Gondola's I was wondering what you people were all talking about, and to the OP, yes it will probably be there:)

tbh I dont really see any point in canoeing...im sure itd be quick just to run or travel by horse...in AC2 its kinda worked because it helped you get to places faster
