Confirmed on twitter by ash (too lazy to put pic but I'm sure you can find it pretty easily).

Fan asked if Edward will have holsters like the cinematic trailers, and ash said yes.

...kinda a small detail, maybe not deserving of its own thread, but it seems to be a topic of great concern for us, so...yeah

Talk of Edwards holsters is now a thing of the past, thanks for posting. :)

All of the past gameplay trailers have shown no holsters whatsoever. No AC3 holsters, no straps. The only trailers that have shown any sort of holsters were the cinematic ones, so it is pretty safe to say that those ones are the ones he was talking about

Hey Loyalfan!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hehe.

Hey, you make fun if you like, but I think my little petition worked like a dream ;) For a while he was saying they may or may not get around to fixing it in the time they had, but when I made my holster thread and people responded positively, I can't help but think it might have inspired the devs to put it higher on their to-do list.

In any case, whether I helped bring this about or not, props to the team for bringing this small aesthetic detail to life :D Game looks fantastic, can't wait to play.

I just actually noticed something in the new Havana gameplay demo. The holsters are there, they're just really small. If you watch it, when Edward approaches the Pigeon Coop and reaches inside a menu pops up, while that menu is up look at the butt of his pistol. It has a small leather strap around it, and the strap hangs from Edward's belt.

Yeah, but it was only there in cutscenes. The Havana demo was probably recorded during the stage where Ashraf confirmed that holsters will be in cutscenes, but maybe not in gameplay depending on whether or not they could get certain issues worked out. But now he's saying holsters will definitely be in gameplay, so yay ;)

And full holsters. They're probably a customization option or the straps were placeholders within the game.

Eh, I kinda doubt this. Just a few weeks ago they weren't even sure of they were going to be in gameplay or not, adding a whole customization loop for them would be pushing it in so short a time. I'd be betting on the straps being either placeholders, or simply what they're going to look like in the final product except in gameplay as well as cutscenes.

actually the straps are also in the gameplay. look closely they are there in the second half of the gameplay where Edward removes his hood and goes to purchase the gun.
i think the contract mission demo was recorded earlier and the later mission was recorded later after they decided to make holsters in game.
maybe its a work in progress and they will make full holsters in game when the game releases.

Yeah, there's no way to really tell at this point. I can't for the life of me see the straps in gameplay, but I'll take your word for it. At least we have confirmation.

Does this really bother you guys so much? I mean we haven't had sheaths for our swords since AC1.

I guess so, tbh what bothers me is from someone who used to do parkour is running, jumping and rolling with 2 swords. Would slightly impale yourself lol.

well it was popular - so didnt need a sticky.. til people started making new threads for every tweet...


also we are limited in the number of threads - it's already a bit cluttered already...

It'd be awesome if we had sheathes for swords too like in AC1. Slightly bothered me in AC3 seeing a floating tomahawk and sword.

Small ring sheathes are valid, they existed, ofcourse they were intended for the battlefield, so as the scabbard wouldn't trip you up. But just walking round, you would want a scabbard, else you'd be stabbing people constantly.

Problem is, with so many different shapes of sword, and the fact that thay can be picked up off the ground and sheathed, i makes having a scabbard quite hard.

Although, Cesare in ACB did have a kind of scabbard that was just a strip of leather that went down covering the blade, and could hold a variety of swords.

Ah fair enough I suppose. Will we get the same ring sheathes that we saw in the first CGI trailer for Black Flag?

I don't understand what your problem is, I was just posting a screenshot to show that, like someone else said in this thread, that in some parts of the demo he has the slips on the guns.
This just show that what Ash has said on twitter, that they will be in-game, meaning that they have fixed the problems they were having with them and got them to work in-game, is true, now does that mean that there couldn't be some other problem that could show up and they are forced to remove them again, no, but do I think that will happen, no, but if it did happen I'm sure Ash would be honest with us about it.

So.. how do the pistols stay in those little things.. and how does he pull them out?

Yea, in all honesty, those are some pretty crappy holsters.

Don't see why they won't just have the same kind as in AC3 for the sides at least.

I'd say they are still better than invisible holsters...

Those little straps are for the swords, as you can clearly see the swords are just glued to him. Normally the holsters will be on Edward's butt and the straps will be for the swords just like in the official trailer. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xdkm9TKSxyI at 0:33 you see it.

If the straps are for the swords then why are they wrapped around the pistols.

Well... maybe they are basic holsters and crafting allows us to customise them and Edward, which determines where the weapons will be equipped on Edward.
