"Amateur?" you say? Yes, my first thread. Also, apologies if there's already a similar thread.

I love the new cinematic. It's awesome, action-packed, ect. Around my second time watching, I've paid a bit more attention to things. This will be a quick recap of what I see.

00:10 - Black-Beard. Duh.

00:38 - Four pistols, as per the promotional cover art unveiled two days ago.

00:40 - Return of dual-wielding weapons, presumably. This time cutlass', which sounds friggin' sweet.

00:48 - Rope swinging? Nice.

00:48 - Glimpse of potential enemy guard? Spaniards, assuming it's a presentation of when Black-Beard remarks about seeing Edward sweep a Spanish Frigate's deck.

00:54 - Pistols in action, seems similar to the auto-kill weak enemies presentation they were given in AC3.

00:58 - Melee?

00:59-01:01 - Environmental take downs? Elaborating on how Connor was able to throw enemies into barrels and break bottles over their heads when countered.

01:04 - Two of Edwards crew killing enemies in the backround. They're similarly color-coded to Edward which may hint at a return of the ambiguous randomly generated Assassin Recruits of Brotherhood and Revelations, possibly in the shape of Edwards crew.

01:09 - ACTUALLY diving underwater. Was present in Liberation.

01:10 - Sunken ship. Hint at underwater ruins? Seems unlikely.

01:12 - Edward comes across a group of enemies escorting a treasure chest. A person can be seen sneaking up on them from behind to the left of Edward. If we can act as decoys for enemy patrols while recruits silently take them out from behind/their flanks, I would scream like a little girl.

01:14 - Shot of a port.

01:36 - Rain during the night can be seen. Most likely the return of seasons and a day/night cycle.

01:45 - Assassinates man, moves in on date. Scumbag Edward. Perhaps a new blending option?

What is also important to see in that passage is the way Ubisoft improved the combat system on irregular fields. Look at how Edward adapts his movements and his style of fighting depending on the differences of heights of the field.

I wonder if they're just taking the pause and target for a bunch of fast quick kills thing into the game from Liberation. The way he goes off with the pistols reminds me of it.

let's just wait and see what they'll show us with actual gameplay, shall wee.
It's a cinematic trailer after all, a prerendered short movie, where you can have the character doing anything you like.. Can't remember these kind of trailers to ever be true to the gameplay footage/experience that followed.

Anyway, my heartbeat did not get any faster while watching this. I'm just curious how they'll handle the present day plot here, if this sucks then all of the worst fears will be confirmed... :/

A great deal of trailers in the past have showed off new gameplay things, obviosuly all the moves wont carry over. But thigns like diving udnerwater should be excpected in the new game. ALso wielding 2 swords at the same time.

Rememebr AC2 trailer. Using courtesans as divertion: check. hidden gun: check. stealing/disarming enemay weapons: check.

ac revelatiosn traielr: eh the way it was part of story didnt rly allow for showing off new stuff.

Brootherhood trailer. calling arrow rain: check. Calling in recruits: check enemies on horses: check guards with guns on rooftops: check.



assassins creed 3: big battle scenes: check running assassination: check treerunning: check. snow: check. wildlife: check.

Pretty much this, plus tree-climbing for AC3's cinematic.

The only thing from the Revelations' CGI trailer that was in the game was the new ability to have Ezio roll over the enemy's back, which you can do in the game, lol.
