Well, Antoine Lavoisier, the "Father of Modern Chemistry", did get guillotined. Probably something to do with that.

thanks for that and take a look at this I found http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chemical_Revolution and it was the work of a French man who named oxygen and hydrogen http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Antoine_Lavoisier him and the guy standing next to Arno look similar

Hmm... Wikipedia had this to say: " At the height of the French Revolution, he was accused by Jean-Paul Marat of selling adulterated tobacco and of other crimes, and was eventually guillotined a year after Marat's death."

Intriguing.

the thing is Jean-Paul Marat was fighting for the people but he was assassinated in his own home by a women named Charlotte Corday and here reason why is (copied from wiki page). Jean-Paul Marat was a member of the radical Jacobin faction which had a leading role during the Reign of Terror. As a journalist, he exerted power and influence through his newspaper, L'Ami du peuple ("The Friend of the People").

Corday's decision to kill Marat was stimulated not only by her revulsion at the September Massacres, for which she held Marat responsible, but by her fear of an all-out civil war.[3]:161 She believed that Marat was threatening the Republic, and that his death would end violence throughout the nation. She also believed that King Louis XVI should not have been executed. maybe he is a Templar

Connor surely is skinny in this teaser right? No that is virtually his final design.

If this was a new character it would make sense for them to change the build throughout development like they did with Edward, with Connor though...it makes no sense, they already have a model so why would they change his build so they could change it back again? Why would they not just build off of his already finalized model from AC3 as opossed to making an entirely new model so they could take the assets from that and put it on another model?

Connor was only skinny during early development of AC3, no trailers ever showed that design because it was scrapped quite early. How many times to I have to repeat that this theory makes zero sense?

It's ok to want something, but if you don't have any good theories or evidence to support it then don't make stuff up. For example I would like a full game where we could play as Haytham, but you don't see me constantly making theories about how that could or would happen.

So may you kindly just have some patience and wait, or come up with sound theories that make sense and are interesting to read about.

Yes!

The "infamous" Assassins creed III target footage, in which Connor was skinny leaked and so on came in september 2012 and by that time we already had seen MAAAAAAANY videos of the final build of the game, the E3 demos, Gamescom and SO many more I cannot remember right now.

Therefore as you said, that theory of "hey Connor used to me skinny, he could still be the character in the new trailer" makes NO sense.

Nice one.
The guy standing next to Arnaud is definitely Antoine Laurent Lavoisier, the famous French chemist that lived from 1749 to 1794. The depiction matches the sculpture that decorates Hotel De Ville in Paris:
http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/4/44/Lavoisier-statue.jpg

It's highly unlikely one would go that far to create something fake (excluding the Industrial Revolution thing). In any case, I really hope it is legit. We haven't seen a real scientist taking the stage in an Assassin's Creed game since Piri Reis from Revelations.

Finally, there was no way Arnaud would be Connor.

AC3 Creative Director:

Alex Hutchison: “We spent a lot of time working on this Assassin, trying to make someone who was compelling to people and seemed like a cool person to be. The fact that responses have been positive – we’ve already seen cosplaying and fan art – and people seem to really have adopted him, which was really satisfying.”

And this was AFTER the game was released.

TBH I already knew that the main protag was not Connor, you don't have to judge his build to determine that. It is obviously really... there isn't a bow and quiver on his back. I think Connor would make a great supporting character though, just as everyone else has suggested. I'm still hopeful about Comet.

I-Like-Pie45
06-01-2014, 09:35 PM
There was no emotional context in AC2 because Petrucchio appeared in only two scenes before he was fridged and Ezio's mother is essentially just a background object sitting and crying for twenty years in the same place

The only reason I collected the feathers is because of trophies.

Plus

emotions are for pussies

The only good collectibles in this series are the shanties because they had material gain

Yup. That's probably the case. They're usually designed to be really short and thin on story content, so that those who didn't pre-order don't actually miss out on anything important. The exception being the PS3- and PC-exclusive Benedict Arnold missions in AC3, which was actually important for the events of ToKW and left many XBox players confused as to who this Arnold character was.

That was because Connor never actually met Benjamin Franklin, lol. He asked Haytham to find his almanacs, then had an awkward five-minute conversation with him about sex, and then somehow Haytham's son is still chasing after the pages that have apparently been blowing in the wind for the past thirty years? Dafuq?

Lavoisier actually makes sense as someone who could be an Assassin's ally, even though I doubt he'll fill the role of the inventor who forges all of our toys for us. Plus he was actually in Paris at the time of the game, unlike Franklin who was (oddly enough) away in Paris for the bulk of AC3.

Really? I actually liked the Colonial Assassin outfit. Its the only outfit in the game that actually looks like it belongs in the Revolutionary War. I wear it any time I go into a mission where I will be on a battlefield like Bunker Hill and Monmouth.
http://images.wikia.com/assassinscreed/images/1/10/ACIII-ColonialOutfit.png

It just makes more sense to me to wear that there to blend in. It actually looks like a soldier. I think they changed it at the last minute from the concept art so that at least one outfit in the game would be similar to a soldier's uniform. Given the game was war themed and all it only seems proper.

Besides the design takes its inspiration almost as an exact copy of the Continental Light Dragoons uniforms(only a different color and minor changes really). So it looks especially in place on the battlefield, or killing a squad of redcoats on horseback.

Haha that's probably because Nutcrackers are traditionally dressed in the flashiest military uniforms of the 1700s and Napoleonic wars. And Dragoons typically tended to have the fanciest uniforms no matter what army it was at the time. So given the period of the game is the 1770s. It's not so much that he would look like a nutcracker, but that nutcrackers stole that style of uniform and ruined it for modern people looking back on it. In the 1700s that would have looked bad *** on a battlefield

She's talking about the Colonial Assassin one that was a preorder bonus from Target or Walmart or something. It looked absolutely nothing like the concept art that was used to promote it, nor did the Captain of the Aquila one.

The default outfit did look awesome, but it never changed from the first promo renders that were released, so there was no issue of false advertising there.

Maybe it has a grappling hook system ontop of the usual crossbow mechanics. Ascend/descend buildings faster, swing across long distances and around corners. Maybe even pull someone off the ground and onto the roof.


I like how the hookblade was used in some of the tombs. So maybe this'll be used to solve puzzles.

http://assassinscreed.wikia.com/wiki/Hidden_Blade#Da_Vinci

Da Vinci

"I ask if he can arm a crossbow bolt beneath my wrist. He ponders for a moment and declares it possible, but expensive."
―Francesco Vecellio asking Leonardo to create the Hidden Bolt.
Upon his arrival in Rome, Leonardo envisioned further improvements to the Hidden Blade, such as a poison dart launcher, which allowed the use of the Poison Blade from a distance.

Leonardo also designed and built the Hidden Bolt, a weapon that could fire small crossbow bolts, upon the request of Francesco Vecellio. As Francesco was only an apprentice at the time, Ezio had not allowed him to use the Hidden Gun, and so Francesco had devised a similar, though lighter, alternative.

Yes, they're probably retractable, but it still doesn't look like a sturdy design. Crossbows are powerful, but slow to load and cumbersome. I already hated the crossbow in ACB, it's too overpowered and too easy to operate to be realistic. I also don't like how it's not hidden at all, like it's just attached to a flimsy wrist guard where it could easily get damaged. Ezio's gear was always tightly secured and layered in complex ways to protect the various mechanisms. This literally looks glued on.

Duh. I'm not talking about historical accuracy, I'm talking about how plausible the mechanism itself would be if it was built back then. We have Codex pages showing us how the hidden gun was mounted on top of the hidden blade, and how the poison blade could have been carved in between those two. Sure, those mechanisms didn't really exist, but the drawings make them look believable at least. This thing? Doesn't look believable at all.

Edit: One reason it doesn't look believable is because if youl ook at Arno's wrist and the leather sleeve/gauntlet, there is a lot of space between his actual wrist and the mechanism. All the previous assassins had gauntlets that were tightly bound to protect their arms and the various attachable mechanisms. Firing a gun using just one arm would require extreme precision and a sturdy hand (which is why I never liked it when in later games Ezio didn't use his other arm to steady his shooting hand). The mechanisms would need to be secured tightly onto the wearer for extra support.

This thing? Looks like it's barely hanging on. The space between the wrist and the gauntlet suggests it's not really a gauntlet but more like a leather sleeve. Sleeves are....well, fabric. A sleeve could not offer any kind of steadiness or protection for a mechanism with all kinds of delicate, breakable bits.

I'd imagine it folds under some kind of guard and loads itself when released. I don't agree that the crossbow was overpowered, we should have access to a lethal silent ranged weapon, it makes sense that an assassin would have one.

We had several lethal, silent ranged weapons in ACB. Crossbow, throwing knives and poison darts. The crossbow was the most overpowered since it could one-shot any enemy, had incredible range and could carry up to 25 ammo. I do NOT want that kind of god mode back.

Because it is pretty plausible having a gun that size out of some random explanation, completely ignoring the fact the recoil effect provided by highly the unstable gunpowder of those days would blow, or least brake the wrist in the first shoot......

And Forgot the Da vinci´s machines! This thing, if true, looks normal in comparison to those.

The real Leonardo Da Vinci actually built prototypes for those machines, so it's not like the devs pulled them completely out of their asses.

Let's just say I'm willing to suspend my disbelief as far as the hidden gun the way it's depicted in AC2 (long aiming time, requires steadying). Recoil would definitely be a problem, I'll give you that, but I always put it down to Leo following Altaïr's instructions carefully. I never liked the idea of Altaïr's armor actually being indestructible (and it wasn't, as we saw in ACB) nor the hookblade, they just screamed unrealistic to me. Maybe that's selective of me, but the hidden gun is already at the very edge of implausibility. I want them to go more, not less realistic as the series moves forward.

The wrist bow seems too unrealistic, at least the way it's depicted in this image. It looks really delicate and like it could easily snag on to something and get ripped off. If it's real, it seems like one of the most implausible weapons we've had so far. I don't want AC to turn into fantasy.

The Hidden Bolt is already a part of AC lore, like it or not. Francesco Vecellio had one. As for the design, that's still subject to change... Connor's hidden blade looked totally different in early screenshots, like this one.

Woah, never noticed how different the blade looks here. Glad they made it more realistic in the game. I hope they will change the crossbow's design before release. I think I will be more okay with it if I don't have to look at it. :nonchalance:

We should have something that will silently one shot an enemy, as I said before were supposed to be Assassins, good Assassins kill silently and I am of a mind that poison should be used differently, we should be allowed to set up assassinations, we should be able to go in before and stage the area like planting poison or hiding until our target is alone or setting up something or someone that will distract so we can kill an enemy silently and walk away.

This is why I have a problem with memory sync, I find it to constricting, it won't allow me to play how I want to play.

I agree, but there should be limitations. Otherwise there's no need to bother setting up anything: you just march in and shoot everyone in the face. ACB crossbow had 25 ammo capacity. Twenty-five. That's more than there typically are guards in any guarded location. In AC1 you only have 5 throwing knives for several sequences and you have to plan your approach carefully to make them count. Only in the last stages of the game do you get upgraded to 10 knives. Those 10 are a luxury that has to be earned. Twenty-freaking-five? Is a joke.

I will give you the ammo thing. But srsly I want planned assassinations back, and I want multiple ways to preform said assassination, hell I even want us to be able to stroll in there and kill everyone if we are skillfull enough, but that should be the hardest way.

Wolfmeister1010
06-03-2014, 03:01 AM
I hope that they bring back free aiming. Because with free aiming, it makes it more skill based, where if you hit the body it does less damage, but on the head it kills. Whereas with like AC3 style aiming, all they can do is make the guns have different stats that take skill out of the equation.

People should not be worrying about authenticity here. AC is far from realistic. Hidden blade mechanism is impossible. If it is triggered by a muscle movement there is NO way an assassin could keep from flexing that muscle by accident. Wearing hoods obstructs 30-40% of your view, which hurts your stealth and combat capabilities. Air assassinations are possible, but not at the same height at which they do it. Even a body would not be enough to shield you from the force of impact of falling from 5 stories. Leap of faith? self explanatory. Ledge grabbing? Impossible. Falling 3 stories and then grabbing on to a ledge below you would tear your arm off as easily as you would break a toothpick. Only modern rope darts made with extremely advance nylon or other material would be able to stay taught and unbroken while sustaining the weight of a human body. A wrist gun with such a short barrel would be impossible, as the explosion from the powder ignition would injure the arm severely. There is a reason the barrels of the muskets back then were so long, and it isn't just because of accuracy.


I think we can get away with a wrist crossbow. Altair had one, remember? In bloodlines.

Maybe it has a grappling hook system ontop of the usual crossbow mechanics. Ascend/descend buildings faster, swing across long distances and around corners. Maybe even pull someone off the ground and onto the roof.


I like how the hookblade was used in some of the tombs. So maybe this'll be used to solve puzzles. Yeah, i think it's a great idea. I hope this is real. Oh, do you remember Spin to Win?

The gloves are to prevent the boxers from breaking their knuckles its not to make the punches softer. If anything its made it more dangerous because they can continuously throw strong punches to the head without hurting their hand like they would in bare knuckle.

Actually saying "Arno" is more correct, as that is what the leaker said it was. The leaker said his english was bad however, so others made the assumption that it could be Arnaud as that looks more French.

Both of them could be wrong though....guess we'll find out at E3 (just one more week...just one more week....)

Saying "Arno" is essentially like saying "Etsio", or "Al Moo-aleem", or "Heyfam" - yes, sounds exactly/almost/pretty much the same, but not how that name would be transcribed into English from its original language (or not how it would be written in its original language). The others that said 'Arnaud' were actually French.

EDIT: Though, to be honest, languages are such a mess anyway, and the whole 'transcribing a name from one language to another' is even messier :p

Not really (or maybe I just don't see how it's like saying Altair too?) I mean, it's not like we pronounce 'Arnaud' as 'Ar-nod', it's still pronounced as 'Ar-no'. The same applies to Altair - the original pronunciation stays (though in the west nobody seems to really know it :p And the Arabic/Latin alphabet transition is also a complex one...)

While Ezio/Etsio comparison is taking an Italian name - Ezio, and writing it as it sounds (at least approximately) - Etsio, disregarding the original owner/origin. That's what's happening with Arnoud/Arno.
