Pretty nice, i see disguises, what seems like a boss battle, a guy with scars similar to MGS3's Volgin and a nice lady.

Also, isn't the women his first wife?

6 if you count Biddle. 8 if you count Biddle, Braddock, and Silas. 9 if you count Biddle, Braddock, Silas, and Miko.

I saw somewhere that they said that there were more assassinations than AC1?

Mills and Kanentokon were hardly targets. An assassination target is someone you actually target, to kill. Not something that just kind of happens.

It was possible with Aveline in a sense, with her different personas.

Probably just story-context, since if we could choose, they`d be marketing the hell out of it...

I hope so. I think maybe it will take the "outfits" to a new level, where outfits and disguises do something other than cosmetic.

Agreed. I expected one gamescom trailer or demo. Not all of these demos and trailers being thrown at us within 15 hours of each other.

Jexx21
08-22-2013, 08:23 PM
we have two trailers. The mission gameplay demo and this trailer. That's not that much and I expected this.

It's gamescom, it's like E3.

ACfan443
08-22-2013, 08:27 PM

I thought AC3's marketing was near perfect, it generated the hype well without burning out the fans with too much content. There was not a single piece of footage which contained spoilers of major events/assassinations. We've had twice of these occurrences in less than a few months.
Revelations did exactly that and we were left with hardly any surprises.

Yeah, I don't feel as spoiled as last year. Last year I though I knew the full game months before launch. Of course... it's still early days I guess... lol

I'm so confused at how people can feel like they know the full game from just trailers. I feel like I barely know anything about the actual story besides the broad sentiment of "Edward is a pirate that has struggles with deciding between the Assassins and the Templars."

I just think we are all burned out from all the new info and videos. Also, we have a sour taste in our mouth from all the tomahawk animations for the swords, and the apparent lack of good optional objectives.

Jexx21
08-22-2013, 08:48 PM
I never actually cared that much about the optional objectives and what they were. They could be strict, they could be lax, they could be non-existent. I wouldn't care either way, I would still try to complete them if they were there and I wouldn't complain if they weren't there.

We know what the Templar grandmaster looks like, and we know how an assassination in the main narrative will play out. There has been a lot of spoiler heavy content published on 'the watch' and a lot of new gameplay features revealed. Most of these things should be kept a secret or it risks losing the surprise and mystery factor, and ultimately leaves you with a burned out feeling. We're not saying we know the whole of the game through a few trailers, we just know a lot about it. Rockstar for example have revealed very little about GTA 5, and I'm absolutely sure that when I play the game I'll be overwhelmed and surprised at the sheer volume of new content.

ze_topazio
08-22-2013, 09:12 PM
Maybe the identity of the Templar grandmaster is not supposed to be a big mystery.

Jexx21
08-22-2013, 09:14 PM
We don't know if he's the grandmaster for the entire game. We could kill him there and someone takes his place. The spoilers on The Watch aren't very heavy imo, and revealing gameplay features is a good thing.

08-22-2013, 10:01 PM
I'm absolutely loving the return of the "Renaissance/AC2" building structures in Havana. That's one thing I've been missing for a while. Looking more and more forward to this game. Just hope the limited edition is worth it this time around.

The first few seconds of this reminded me of the cello trailer for AC1. Then the speaking started, and it got kinda hilarious.

Still, disguises? Cool. Hopefully we can keep it, as it looks rather badass. I'm still baffled why AC3 didn't let us keep the colonial attire from the brewery mission, but we could keep the bloody soiled prison rags.

Looks like Character Modelers need to sort out the smoothing groups and the Animators need to sort out wielded vertices in the smoothing group animation modifier. I know they use 3Ds Max, they mostly need to sort out their modifier stacks before importing their work into the ANVILNEXT engine.

I know a lot of technical things but that's my specialty. :)

Not sure if hilarious, but surely unusual.. I myself got some tarantinesque vibe from it (that whistling somewhat reminded me of old western movies). Best part is when the footage syncs with the music perfectly, as Edward emerges from the bushes to smack the red coat ;)


I'm still baffled why AC3 didn't let us keep the colonial attire from the brewery mission, but we could keep the bloody soiled prison rags.

Ah yes, the only outfit that would not stand out on the streets and blend in...

@adventurewomen
You're most probably 150% right; I used a different term as this was what caused similar issues in models I worked on in a different engine / software.
I just hope they do really fix this and that they're not being overconfident, thinking "Nah, noone will notice / game rocks anyway and they'll already preordered etc." It's kinda strange that noone editing the clip paid attention to what kind of unfinished aspects they're putting in there... ;/

That's merely a perspective. I find it to be my honest opinion and I feel the need to share with the community.

By your infantile logic, anyone who had a signature glorifying Connor would be flamebaiting or whatever deformed term the Internet has come up with.

No it's his opinion. It doesn't break any rules moreso than sigs saying Connor is great.

ACfan443
08-23-2013, 01:23 PM
I like Connor, but some of you rabid Connor fans have been conducting yourselves with the decorum of justin bieber fangirls, and it's really starting to put me off him. Irrespective of the fact that the guy's a troll, there's nothing wrong with his sig. I've seen sigs with 'Ezio sucks' and 'rip AC' - it's the exact same thing. This **** reeks of double standards...

Mr_Shade
08-23-2013, 01:25 PM
And...

Back on topic..


This is NOT a Connor Vs Ezio Vs Muppet babies thread..


If you want to discuss the merits of assassin's - there are PLENTY of other threads..

Do not hi jack threads for your own agenda.



If you don't like a signature - which does not break the rules - ignore it - or the person attached to it..

silvermercy
08-23-2013, 01:27 PM
I would never wear or like a sig that said any Assassin Sucks. So no double standards from me.

They may not be breaking the rules...But, positive sigs are not flame-bait. Negative ones CAN be though by default.
