Yeah so whoever was wondering about the hood being controllable, better luck next time.

"We control it. The hood goes up/down based on narrative queues. There's no hood toggle button or anything like that."

Least you guys now know, even if it's not what you wanted.

Read a little lower.
Sean T ‏@CockneyCharmer 6h
@assassinscreed @ZeroHunt_X Have to admit, ever since #ACII have always wanted the option to control the Hood #FanboyWish


Then...
@CockneyCharmer @ZeroHunt_X And that's fair, so we'd love to give it to you, but it would mean sacrificing something else.

So, one of two things. 1. It's something brand new that's awesome. Or, 2. It's something already we have but we don't realize what button it would have to be on(more than likely 1.)

indeed.

Would have been nice, but how many people would really use it - if they had to remove something?

Depends what they remove.. Does anyone actually use fastwalk? That instant-camera-move-to-default-view button? Hm??

I cannot emotionally connect to these gaming characters when you can control what they do.

That's why I hate RPGs like Elder Scrolls - there's too much user customization of the character. What the hell do they want us to do in RPGs - create a role for us to play? Preposterous.

Keep customization crap out of AC. It belongs as little as other irrelevant and out of place parts of the franchise like assassinations and climbable buildings.

That's kind of a load of BS imo. They never had to map it to one button during real time in the game. We all know the buttons are being used to max capacity. We've simply asked they put it as a toggle in the menu or in the weapon wheel screen/ menu. You hold L2 to pull up the weapon wheel and press select to toggle the hood on/off.

Not sure if you're serious but I dislike character upgrades. Like, if I want to use 4 flintlocks, DON'T MAKE ME "LEVEL UP" TO GET IT DESE IS RIDICULOUS

Like they say - they have reasons - I am sure they thought of the ways to change it - it maynot be purely down to lack of space for a button..

I care more about crouching than taking off my hood. Also, youve seen gamelay that proves that you can equip a plain outfit for roaming beaches and stuff where Edward has no hood, let alone his assassin atire.

The automatic queues could still work for it being up and down so that wouldn't have to be sacrificed. With the animations already there and an option that doesn't require the use of one the buttons during gameplay realtime, what would you have to sacrifice exactly? Just seems like a poor excuse much like the lack of holsters for the pistols on edward's hips.

What? they won't do it cause the controller doesent have a button for it?! These forums already said they could make it a menu option.

And we've suggested a skin with the hood down.. If they have that, now would be the time to tell us!

Hopefully he automatically keeps his dood down in alot of palces similar to Connors homestead.
