Add these to your list...

While the AI can swim, only your pirate crew will voluntarily go into water (everyone else will have to be pushed in if you want to see them swim). Brutes can't swim at all.


Concerning the PC release, the next two months are mostly all about fixing bugs. The PC version will be "solid."


The combat will be more similar to AC3's than AC2's, but with "major enhancements due to the dual swords, guns and enemy changes."


There are "a lot of costumes for Ed and some have gameplay implications," including increasing his health.


You will be able to find and wear this coat

http://i.imgur.com/88o4bQv.jpg


"Plenty" of random events like ones seen in the recent gameplay trailer


Concerning the open world... "Explore any time, there's a lot to discover and do outside of missions. The world is massive. Yes there are shops."


There will be over 35 sea shanties to collect for your crew to sing.


There will be more gameplay videos before launch, as well as the Comic-Con panel.


You can't use the spyglass while not at the helm of the Jackdaw due to technical restraints.


Three "huge" Aveline missions exclusive to PlayStation. Together, they supposedly add just over an hour of content.


"Reach high point" is an internal name. They're still called Viewpoints in-game.


You will control other ships (not the Jackdaw) in certain missions.


You won't be able to go on all the land you see, but there will be a lot to go to.


The Havana gameplay video will be released in 3-4 weeks(Gamescom).

I hope to keep this thread updated each day. Either if it will be on the main thread or as a comment is still undecided, hope this bring some good news. :D
They lowered to sea shanties to 35!:eek:

Another update:

- Holsters will be added to the final game, Edward currently don't have any holsters because the game is not finished.
- You will be able to sell pelts of animals you hunted in the sea, also "PETA loves us".
- You cant sell the ships you capture, you can use them to repair the Jackdaw, lower your wanted level, or send to fleet. You can sell their cargo.

Skipping cutscenes on first playthrough? lol no. I wanted the story...that's the only reason to play AC.

And no, I didn't go any synch requirements tried to play how I wanted as much as I could....that and because a lot of requirements are pretty...stupid. If there were some that would be achieved while I played my own way then i got those but never 'tried' to do them all. The only time I did was Brotherhood.

Lol, that explains it. :p I don't think the requirements were stupid though. They weren't actually too difficult, although I did have problems with a couple. Then that can make it frustrating.

Difficulty isn't really the issue here, I enjoy difficulty...

But not when it comes at the cost of how I want to play something.

Catch that guy but do not shove anyone...

Not only does that go against logic(I'm supposed to catch a guy or he'll blow the whistle but nooo I cannot shove people) it's really taking the piss when shoving is an automatic thing.

They still have Full synch but they're trying to to make them less restrictive.
Here'a a vid with Ash were he talks about full synch https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w8nXLl80VnU&list=UUfB8dJdMxEofkcybwAskjqQ&feature=player_detailpage&t=237

- We will see gameplay videos in the past few weeks. (Including Havana).
- Losing all your crew causes desync.
- " stealth is super important and we put a lot of effort on it. Notoriety made detection rules complex"
- Pirate hunters! (Sounds to me like the stalkers in ACR only more being attention to).
- Edwar'ds first pistol is on his hip, not chest.
- You might be able to craft outfits using the items you earn by hunting animals
(Q: With the skins of the animals hunted by harpooning can we create new outfits for edward??
A: I won't ruin the surprise ;) - Sounds like a yes to me, yet don't want to say it's confirmed.)

Think of it somehow more like Brotherhood, you're not going to go with Edward on your console and you know, kill a few ships in order to complete missions or whatever it will be. It is most likely going to be just *click*, *click* , *click* FLEET MISSION DONE.

Edit: I'm an idiot, "no, closer to brotherhood, BUT with the companion app you can jump into those missions and do them yourself".
Thanks for Jexx21 for correcting me up.

Nope. Ash said that you can "hop in" and do the missions yourself. I think it would be like an RTS thing almost though. Similar to the companion app games that they showed off for Watch_Dogs and The Division.

Do you know what being SHOWN a feature means?? do you?? It`s like basically saying we`ll have that in the final game....even more so than answer on twitter...you`re greatly underestimating being SHOWN a feature and then it being cut...

I`m not saying they`re lying, AGAIN i repeat, i`m not saying they`re lying...i`m saying that there still exists a chance that it may be cut and until that chance completely diminishes (which is extremely hard at this point) i`ll remain skeptic and remind everyone about it..

I don't require them to re-implement the high jump mechanic, but it would be nice to have to find the right path to climb a viewpoint again I guess. Or at least specific viewpoints. I remember having to find the right path to climb the Borgia towers and some of the Venice viewpoints.

New stuff

- You can hunt animals just like AC3 but it is more simplified, no more traps or bait etc just kill animals and get the goods.
-you can wield two swords but there are many different blades

That's ok I guess. As long as Edward doesn't start wrestling with a shark or something...

Does this just mean you can get different swords from blacksmiths as usual, or that there will also be knives or short swords or something?

More or less. It's his personal twitter account for his personal use. Turning it into a 24/7 Q&A page is a bit excessive. Ubisoft already has Twitter Q&As on the official Assassin's Creed twitter account, so this is "going the extra mile" so to speak. Sure a few initial interest is appreciated, but it can get a bit absurd. I just hope we have not been and won't be too intrusive.

In previous ACs you had to put some effort to climb a building, in AC3 you just have to press forward.

I agree with this. I also felt that climbing was way too fast, in AC3 you shot up the building in less than 2 seconds. It destroyed the sense of verticality.

It had the worst free aim system in the entirety of gaming. First of all, it's pretty much one hit one kill, so it makes zero sense for it to have free aim for humans. It just becomes frustrating. "Man I'd like to get a headshot" *aims at head* NOPE. Connor lowers his bow cause the aim cursor is a 0.00001 mm off the guard's body. Either you make it auto-aim, or make it completely free-aim.

I don`t see how that makes it the worst aiming ever. it did its job. I had no problem with its aiming and no, it wasn't always a one hit kill. it depended on how long you hold it before shooting. it can also kill 2 adjacent people..

It happened to me once or twice, though I can see where you`re coming from. it is quite annoying..not the weapon`s fault, though...since the enemy detection AI was effed up to begin with

The bow gave Connor a pretty badazz look, however since the AI was "inconsistent", the weapon suffered for it! I hope that mistake gets fixed in AC IV, I liked how the difficulty was "increased" a little bit in AC3, but could have been better improved, IMO.

A funny thing about the bow is, hitting two people with one arrow even works when it doesn't kill the guards. So apparently the arrow passed through one's body but they are hardly phased. The bow from Tomb Raider was really good, but that's a third-person shooter so I guess comparisons shouldn't work.

Just Tried it now. One guard was behind a tree, another next to him in plain site. I was as far away as I could get to test this detection thing out. Shot the guy pearing out from the tree, got detected. Lame.

OSantaClownO
07-31-2013, 11:08 PM
You usually would like to get the bow out when you have a height difference between your targets.
The mission when you need to blow up 2 ships without being detected is probably the best use for the bow.

Wasn't sure where to put this, so I'll put it here (didn't see this posted yet):

Interview with Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag Creative Director Jean Guesdon over email:

excerpt:
I would personally say that, when we first meet him, Edward is a likable criminal. He’s selfish and motivated by gold and fame but he truly is a good man looking for a better life. During the course of the game we will follow him as he progressively evolves from that very “teenage” attitude of rebellion and authority refusal to a more adult and responsible personality. He will slowly understand duty and the fact that without rules and structure you can’t build anything, including your own life.

Now play through the campaign again and do every liberation mission, full sync constraint, club activity, challenge, privateer contract, delivery request, almanac page, and feather in the remaining 7-9 hours.

Not saying you missed out on much by skipping most of the side content (much of it was asinine) but nobody can seriously claim to get 100% completion + a second story run in 20 hours.

Ashraf:

-you can go as far from your ship as you want
-Jackdaw comes with you when you fast travel
-weather system is in on land
-characters react to weather
-we can jump on ships before they leave port and take out our target that way, but it's hard to pull off
-Wolfpack is returning as an MP option

Darby:

-AC3 MP player and Modern-day protagonist are same person: the player (what this means is pretty much up to the player I guess)
