So, unless you are not into gaming, you've probably already watched some of the trailers about some new upcoming games, while "new" is the keyword here, because some of the new faces look oddly familiar:

1.

Thief (4/2014):

and Assassin's Creed (2007):

2.

Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag (2013):

and Prince of Persia The Forgotten Sands (2010):

I think Postimage site is quite good!

As for the similarities! hehe! They're bound to be some... xD

Real Life: I think Edward look like either Sawyer from Lost (with hair down) or Chris Hemsworth (when in ponytail):

Oh and...might I reminds you Thief is a very old game and the face of Garrett still resembles the one from the older games, so yeah...no point bringing him up, if you're a "new age" gamer that has never played Thief well......sucks for you.http://images3.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20080624225509/thief/images/7/7c/Garrett2.jpg

Plus the devs themselves have said that the new Thief will be "modernised" a bit for the casual audience and will have more "action"(their own words) which completely sucks.

Don't worry mate, oldschool gamer here, played them all back in the day; I'm not part from that ignorant audience seen recently, which says that the new Thief game looks like a rip-off from Dishonored...

Back on topic. So, it's not only me that sees the similarities? When I first saw Edward in the Blag Flag reveal trailer, I instantly though of The Prince from TFS, except that Ed has a brighter hair and he's without that silly beard...while today's new trailer of Thief really reminded me of Francisco Randez/Altair/Desmond/AC1, like the lower part of the face and the shape, the beard...it may be the lighting, because it's really dark, but it looks very similar :p

Nice to see not everyone is Tumblr casual here....always good to meet oldschool gamers :D

When i saw Edward's face i felt 'I've seen this before" but I can't pinpoint where or who it resembles.

We do not understand these two words. Perhaps because we are not well-acquainted with the speaking style of human females.

Problem is 'modern' casual gamers expect a fair bit of action in their games, regardless of genre (look at the new Tomb Raider), so we just gotta deal with it.

If you look closely enough - You'll find many current game characters are just rehashes of characters from older games ........... Design wise , AC has been inspired by several older games (inspired by - or lazily copied :rolleyes: )

One of the few things UBI haven't 'borrowed' from Tenchu series so far is 'JAPAN' as a setting .

But they've 'borrowed' a lot of things from Tenchu otherwise.

Pretty much every weapon type / Assassin ability / items were all in previous Tenchu games from years ago. Even the AC3 TOKW powers are just rehashed 'Tenchu Ninja Magic' abilities. :rolleyes:

Crap. That game that came out before ours had a character with long'ish hair! We can never do a game with a long-haired protagonist ever again!

EDIT: How the hell is 'crap' not blocked by the filter? :S

Crap was never blocked.

And you should checkout the things AC and Tenchu have in common, it's more than just "hair"

:cool: Check the actual games & see what else the AC series has that Tenchu series had years before .......

Here's another example = Tenchu 2 - was actually a prequel to Tenchu 1 , Had pirates involved in main plot ,character called Blue Devil because he fights like a devil, underwater swimming & shark fighting , poison blow pipe , Tree climbing/navigation ........

Any of that Tenchu 2 plot & content sound familiar ?

Considering I have no intention of playing Techu, I'm not particularly bothered by the similarities. I will point out though that other game series have done prequels before, not just Assassin's Creed...

LOL - It's far more than 'similarities' & a prequel plotpoint ....... But as you've obviously never played any Tenchu game , you'll never realise you've actually been playing it already throughout the entire AC series.


( i'm waiting for AC to add X-Ray FX for unarmed assassination takedowns at some point - along with a grapple hook & rope )
