Adewale: "A former slave from Trinidad, then a buccaneer, now the Jackdaw's quartermaster".

--

"No medicine in this one... so Edward heals through the power of positive thinking, but only when out of conflict".

--

"Yes. A single button press gets them singing. There are dozens of shanties, and many folk songs in taverns too. 70 in all".

--

Q: "Will there be any side-missions outside the Caribbean sea?".

A (Darby): "A few, yes".

--

Q: "Any horses?".

A: "Neigh! (No)".

--

"We have cool puzzles in the present to solve, which will unlock about 90 minutes of extra content. Videos, audio files, docs, etc".

--

The most essential info I found.

This was really informative :)

"Will there be any mandatory modern missions like in AC3?"
"Yes, the main story takes us into the present day a handful of times."

So that thing about completely optional modern story was ********.
Good.


"will we be seeing William Miles, Shaun Hastings and Rebecca Crane again?"
"A few of them yes...."

YAY!

Yeah. I think they will be connected anyway... Say, Edward finds/does something important and the Abstergo employee sees that.

Right now the only cliffhanger I can think of is the employee switching sides and making a run for it. lol

Q: Is there going to be an armour system like in AC2 and ACB?
Darby: No individual pieces of armour, but loads of different outfits with various gameplay functions and tweaks.


Best damn news I heard. Not only is there no armour, but costumes have gamepay functions (dark costumes for sneakier night stealth I hope). Um happy.

Now now, let's not get carried away and imagine such possibilities about stealthier night suit...

The outfits having gameplay functions sounds exciting. Please let there be some kind of disguise system, even an imperfect one like in ACR.

Wolfmeister1010
07-19-2013, 02:09 AM
I assume they will be like the outfits in RDR. For example, one outfit may make you reload your guns faster, or a certain outfit might make you run slightly faster. Hmmmmmm what else..... One that could.....protect more against bullets, or protect more against bladed weapons, and more.

Probably this, but a man can have dreams of a stealthy night suit and a disguise/noble outfit that slows down guard detection. You're probably right, Wolf. While what you said is the closest to reality, it's bot much exciting I have to say. Who knows!

Hey we can dream!! I actually believe that one of the outfits will slow down detection. Not sure about night suit though. Just know that there can't be any outfits that are too overpowered.

8. Will snipers be commonplace or only in specific missions? Rooftops are an Assassin's best friend, hopefully the snipers aren't too bothersome that it might be safer (and less annoying) to just stay on the ground. I don't find it troubling but this seems like something newer or less experienced players will find tedious and complain about.
10. Where did the idea come from that Vidic was the leader of the Templars? AC1 made it clear he was just a subordinate.
19. 70 songs?!

I think Edward was trained by himself.He's a pirate and before that,a privateer.Remember?
Privateers are already adept in sword fighting,ship handling,running,jumping etc.Then also,Edward will be better at those due to his heritage from Ezio's bloodline.
I think Ed's mentor will be....(spoilers).....Ben Hornigold.
And this mentor is also an...um...antagonist in the end as he goes anti pirate later on.

Snipers r gunners who work as snipers.Snipers are those who shoot from hiding places or vantage points.
So fixing gunners on rooftops or tree tops or among dense bushes will make them snipers.

Ans to 9)Snipers will be in and out of missions.They're simply gunners fixed at vantage points and tasked to take out suspicious people.
Ans to 10)Some fans were thinking Vidic to be the Abstergo leader.I donno why.
Ans to 11)Yeah,70 different traditional pirate songs including that familiar ''Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum....''(Wondering why it's to b manually triggered)

This is how I read it too. Of course they'll have missions on land, otherwise they wouldn't have bothered building three different distinct cities. There may be missions that take place outside of the usual locations though.
