So do you think tree running will be the same? For a while now, I figured it would just be copy and past but Edward didn't grow up climbing trees like Connor did. Plus towards the end of this video, the interview asks about tree navigation to a degree and the creative director says there a "form" of tree navigation in the jungles.

It will be in there but not as much as AC3 where we can jump to every branch.

^It looks more real. Hopefully they get rid of those lego branches from ACIII.. I know it is not going to be like the Frontier but I know there are plenty of wild life locations. I just there is more people and missions.

^^^that picture makes me hope we have something like the rope dart or just have the rope dart again to hang people with.

And I'm just thinking will he be able to climb up trees by jumping into the "V"s of every part of the tree. or leap from branch to branch.

Oh Edward has a rope dart .......................Decorated spear head shaped as the 'Assassin A ' logo ------- & used to hang people / Swing across ships & trees . ( I'D GUESS )
So expect some Indiana jones exploration & swinging elements .

( They wanted to include grapple rope / rope swinging in AC-3 but dropped the idea)

Yes - I Listened carefully (hardly in depth discussion on this feature ) ..................Then i watched the concept art & Gameplay trailers showing Edward Navigating through tree branches in the Jungle .

Maybe your definition of Tree running differs .................There's a Tree - Edward's running across it's branches .

When i say Tree Running i was talking about Connor's style in AC3.. The part when the interview said so there is going to be no free running through trees and Jean replied NO, that confirmed it to me that we will not be seeing that feature in Black Flag.

He is running on a tree. That is parkour and that is freerunning. And what do you mean by Connor's style? You mean he can't jump from tree to tree or climb a tree? Well he has to climb a tree before he is able to freerun on the tree branch so that is probably a no. He has to jump to ledges, beams, and to the ground so I am assuming he can jump from branch to branch. Treerunning is in the game.

When i mean Connor's style i ment tree running as it was in AC3, so if there is tree running in AC4 why would the lead developer contradict these claims in a major media interview ? does not make sense to me and in that Video he was no running he was moving slowly like he was stalking a target .

Like I said, if he says there is no tree running, maybe he means tree running open free roam areas. I think, judging from the pics, that we can free run on trees but only in scripted sequences, say a tomb or on a certain island for treasure or something.

You seem to have a misunderstanding on the definition of freerunning. Freerunning does not necessarily imply that you are "running". The definition of freerunning, broadly speaking, and in practitioners circle with no distinction between parkour, means traversing over an obstacle from point A to point B. Wall climb, vaulting, shimmying, rolls,etc. all of these techniques are not "running" but they are part of freerunning. Get it?

If they truly mean that the world is seamless, then possibly the jungle is explore-able. I really don't understand how much of the world is seamless or how much jungle we can explore but hopefully but unlikely they keep their word.

From what they say its random islands that we can explore any time if we run into them on our boat. If we see an island we just jump off the boat, swim there and see what we can find.

I don't know how much of this holds true. But they are really trying to push this seamless open world agenda and they have been showing quite alot of underwater footage. Hopefully it is just one big map with plenty of places to explore.

Yes i am aware of the difference but the interview totaly contradicts the title of this thread, its like the lead designer has confirmed this so i am going to take this information on board, i understand that there will be Parkour and free running ect in the game but the point that was made here was that the interviewer asked in lamen terms will Edward be able to move through the trees like Connor and he replied no.

Which, considering that most of it is sea, is relatively easy to do (it's still hard, just easier than a full seamless ground world). They can play around with procedural loading algorithms and it will take less processing power than loading ground areas only.

I think they mean the world around the city... You can't sail from city to city, they just mean city to water is seemless, you just go to the docks. Im talking about going to Jamaica for one mission, or that Mayan ruin. Those 2 could feature tree running.

The way I interpret the info so far (interviews+gameplay footage) is that there will be some bigger branches we can platform on, but the advanced treerunning system from AC3 is gone (or at least has been gimped). I was very, very suprised when I heard that Guesdon interview on the reveal. For me treerunning was the most interesting and unique feature AC3 added. It must have taken a tremendous effort and it's something no other game can do at anywhere near this level. Since Edward has the same basic moveset as Connor it seems to me most of the hard work has been done, just reskin the trees Caribbean style and cash in.

But I think we must wait and see, because it hasn't been 100% confirmed either way. I'm still hoping for treerunning as I think it would add a lot to this setting.

Thats the conclusion i have come to lol ! Jean said in the interview that Edward will not beable to move through the trees like Connor could.

projectpat06
05-16-2013, 08:15 PM
I think they should allow edward to move like connor did in the trees just for the sake of it being a fun mechanic that took a long time to make. No one really cared how ezio got into climbing buildings so why do we need a story reason for edward to freerun in the trees

GreySkellig
05-16-2013, 09:37 PM
Here's my two cents:

The rough wording is no, Edward will not be able to move through the trees like Connor did. I interpret this to mean that Edward will be able to climb trees, walk on branches, even jump branch to branch. But by the very nature of the jungle environment we're talking about here, the same movement will not be possible. You won't be able to traverse whole areas in the trees. Instead climbable trees will be more sparse, and designed more for the purposes of stealth and ambush than navigation.

I'm also curious about the rope dart swinging a few people mentioned. The programming for this exists, I believe, from the whip in AC3: Liberation. Might not be too much of a stretch for them to integrate it into the game, especially since it seems we already have swinging in some form with ships' ropes.

It's from here: http://www.examiner.com/list/assassin-s-creed-4-black-flag-will-be-a-unique-experience-like-never-before

"This feedback also made its way into the production. An example: we started the game with less tree-running-capable locations - after the strong reception we saw in 'ACIII' we decided to add more jungles and natural locations that supported this feature," Ismail said.

This interview was puplished April 18th a month after the reveal, so maybe they decided to add more of it due to feedback after the reveal? I dunno, feels like they are sending mixed signals on this topic.

I think the fact that Connor coming from the Mohawk tribe ( thus carrying his mothers genes, years of practice that sort of thing ) was the reason why Connor could tree run and Haytham could not.

But igoing by the interview with Darby it seem there will be some sort of Tree running, which is conflicting to what Jean said ? But here is hoping as that was a seriously cool feature :)

Ideally yeah, but AC3 didn't balance narrative and gameplay well at all. The emphasis was clearly on narrative. Only way to explain the longest tutorial in videogame history, Paul Revere, Battle of Concord, Haytham bossfight, Desmond missions, Lee chase etc. None of that was in the service of gameplay. Explains why there are so many missions built around auxiliary mechanics with such catastrophic results.

This is concept art not proof of tree running, Connor's ability to move through the trees will be reflected differently with Edward Kenway. its makes perfect sense that Edward has the abilty to climb trees because of Jungle exploration but lets not forget that the Jungles are very dense places so logicaly for Edward to move through the trees as fluid as Connor could in the frontier would not make much sense.

And tree running in AC3 was not just with V Shaped trees he could also move from branch to branch which in my eyes is free running through the tree tops.

Tree-running will be present in AC4.




We have dedicated a considerable amount of time refining it, however… although the most noticeable changes will be in the environment. We have spent lots of time refining the environment in order to ensure that mobility takes priority and to cut out dead ends… Edward should always have a choice of directions and elevations he can traverse, even in cities.

Obviously redefining because Jungles are more dense than the vast frontier ! yesp makes sense to me but i could not understand one saying no on sayimg yes lol why not come out with it in the begining ? i am thinking because of creative purposes :)

Shadey is obviously trying to deceive us poor people because he hates trees.

Awesome. My only problem with tree-running in AC3 was the dead ends and not having enough paths. It'll be a lot more fun/useful if we are given more opportunities to use it. :)

Exactly !! being as the jungle will be more dense getting from A to B in the Canopys of the trees i expect will be more fluid . than the open frontier

I also hope there'll be more trees in the cities. Not everywhere, obviously, but present. In the E3 demo of AC3 they made Connor use the tree branch to hang up that soldier as part of a mission but in the final game there were no real opportunities like that in the cities.

I Also wanted the Winter option to throw 'Snowballs' at civillians in AC-3 (mostly the orphans & kids on homestead ) ................But no such luck , not even as a Christmas bonus.

just make throwing stuff a stealth mechanic, could be useful.
