Very nice. Reminds me of the AC1 CG trailer, when Altair assassinates that executioner. Also, Arno pushing through the crowd reminded me of Ezio in AC2 at the hanging of his family. Nice to see hoodless Arno aswell!

Got an ACR vibe from the trailer, mainly because of the style of fighting and the Woodkid song.
Look forward to seeing how this love story develops, my interest is piqued.

Nice. Reminds me of the ac1 CG trailer where Altair assassinates that executioner. Also, Arno pushing through the crowd, reminded me of AC2 where Ezio is trying to reach his family at their execution. And of course, the wood kid track screams ACR. Lovely trailer!

Nice trailer. Running on rooftops is going to be awesome in Unity. Although it would have been nice if they didn't show what the girl was (for the sake of the story). The map is suppose to be about the size of the frontier, but if that level of destiny is achieved in the final game, it will seem much bigger.

Jump through the window on top the the guard, kill him and roll forward in one motion. Then fire off all the shots in the sixshooter killing everyone in the room. Slowly walk down to the cellar and see if they have some good French wine ;).

But yeah this could lead to some really cool set ups!

Holy crap, that guy has a golden sword on his back! and those spears / scythe look awesome!!

A scythe is an agricultural implement with a blade fixed perpendicular to the shaft. That's a fauchard.

This fauchard, to be exact, http://www.metmuseum.org/collection/the-collection-online/search/22208 which belonged to the guard of Cardinal Scipione Borghese-Caffarelli over 150 years before the French Revolution.

http://images.metmuseum.org/CRDImages/aa/web-large/DP277180.jpg

I'm kinda disappointed with a lot of the weapons I'm seeing for ACU. Too many of them are ceremonial weapons that would never be used practically, or radically predate the late 18th c setting. And many of them, such as this fauchard, seem to be yanked from the first page of google image results because they looked cool to some intern. Then again, it does slightly lessen my anger that Ubi has attached so much freakin' pre-order and collectible-tethered material to this game, since I wouldn't actually want to use these things.

All that aside, this trailer is stupendous. I'm really excited for the free-running, as well as the Assassin/Templar alliance (love story?) that seems to be brewing. Maybe it will humanize Arno and elevate him above the woodenness to which many AC protags succumb. At the very least, Elise seems like a strong female character.

Hopefully a templar game will change that.

From game informer:Elise Is Saved From Certain Death By Arno, Joins The Fight
Ubisoft recently hinted at an important female character in Assassin’s Creed Unity. Today, Ubisoft has opened up a bit about who she is and what role she will play.

According to Ubisoft, Elise is a noblewoman and a member of the Templar order. As you can see from the cinematic trailer below though, she crosses paths with (and becomes indebted to) Arno, an Assassin and the main character of the tale.
Elise will be getting her own companion book, also titled Assassin’s Creed Unity, by Oliver Bowden. Bowden has written companion books for the series previously. The novel is told from her perspective.

Sorry if this is covered in the trailer. I can't watch it because I've reached my monthly data limit of 15 GB

I reckon he will have sympathy for the Templars as he was brought up by a Templar Master, but at the same time he believes in the Assassin cause more. So he tries to unite the two factions hence the name Unity. It won't work though as Desmonds dad said that they once tried to unite but it didnt work, their beliefs are too different.

Eh, I'd call the books quasi-canon. They retcon stuff from the novels pretty regularly. Now that Edward's been established as a badass man of action after Forsaken was written, I could totally see them retconning his death into something more grandiose than getting killed by two guys. It wasn't a problem before AC4, but now that we know Edward was a full, combat-tested Assassin pirate it seems a bit silly that he couldn't fight off a couple of two-bit cronies on Birch's payroll (when he was still pretty young, no less; Ezio did better when he was in his late 60s). Kind of a gameplay-story segregation type of thing.

except they're still men, not gods.

I think it's important to have it like that, to show that even a man that's very skilled can be bested with the element of surprise. Besides, I doubt that the Assassins are actually as good as the gameplay implies.

Man, Arno looks so classy.

This new CG Trailer is pretty much what I expected from an Assassin's Creed Trailer, they always make you jumping on the hype train if you're not already on it. And that Woodkid song... sometimes I believe he just makes his sounds to be used in an AC Trailer. Fits so good.

And, the story around Arno and Elise seems to be pretty interesting... I hope they don't give us any more spoilers until release. Already like Elise now, and I'm definitely buying the Fiery Templar Figure + The fearless Assassin + The Legendary Altair Figure. With Arno from the Guillotine Collector's Case that makes 4 Figures this fall... serious space and money problem here. #firstworldproblems

*spanks* no moar whining. I will Romeo/Juliet Ezio/Haytham all i want. Gosh, you never let me do anything daaaaad. :rolleyes:

@jeo




he is not as impressed with the weight of the long mystical tradition and ancient rhetoric as some of the other Assassins. He likes to think for himself and make his own decisions. He isn’t the type of person who will believe something just because someone tells it to him.

He is a very well educated young man. He was raised in a noble household and had access to tutors and books so he is very well-read. He has a habit of quoting the classics and tends to use humour to deflect when he is emotionally vulnerable, like a lot of people do I think. We very much wanted him to not be the sort of grizzled bad-*** spouting one-liners that you see in a lot of action movies. We wanted him to feel like an actual person.”

shaping up to be his own unique character

except they're still men, not gods.

I think it's important to have it like that, to show that even a man that's very skilled can be bested with the element of surprise. Besides, I doubt that the Assassins are actually as good as the gameplay implies.

Well of course not, and that's a problem. Don't have him mowing down an entire ship's crew only to turn around and die in a fight with two dudes, realistic as it may be. It's alright to go with a total power fantasy if they want, but if they do they have to avoid giving them godlike status in the gameplay and then strip it entirely away as soon as player control ceases. Imagine if you were playing Arkham City and the Dark Knight himself got his *** kicked by a handful of Joker goons in a fair fight during cutscene. Yeah, it's realistic that even the best fighter in the world can get overwhelmed, but it clashes hard with the rest of the experience when I just pwned an entire room of similar thugs plus two titans and an Abromovic twin.

Batman got pwned by Harley Quinn in Arkham City when she whipped out her baseball bat at his head.

Batman was caught by surprised.

Edward just woke up to 3 guys ransacking his house and wasn't alert enough to seriously fight back. Besides that, it's been at least 10 years if not longer since he was actually storming ships and taking down crews, and we don't know all that he was up to in London. Maybe a few assassinations, but I wouldn't be surprised if overall it was fairly non-eventful.

But before that he got gassed in the face by Joker who literally jumped on his back and put him in a chokehold. THAT is getting taken by surprise. Edward was able to wake up, grab his swords and confront them head-on. The situations aren't comparable. If they had come into his house and stabbed him in his sleep or shot him, I wouldn't have a problem with it, but as it is it's a bit silly.

I don't think so either. But the hand being at about five seconds from 12 definitely has a meaning. They wouldn't have put that one frame at the end if there was no meaning behind... At least that's what I think. Could be because of dramaturgy purposes though.

That's actually a good point. It's like these trailers are combining elements from all previous AC trailers. Woodkid music = ACR, brotherhood element = ACB, execution gone wrong = AC1, chase through the city = AC2. I wonder if there'll be a third CG trailer that combines elements from AC3 and AC4.

think you're wrong there and everybody else that's reading it wrong as well. You guys are mistaking the seconds hand, the hour hand is at almost 2 o clock at the end frame. The first frame shown in the beginning, shows the time at 11:59 with the seconds hand nearing 12. At the end of the video, the time shows 1:56 with the seconds hand at 12 on the dot.

He did somewhat....like his quest for redemption to be an Assassin was similar to how Altair had to regain his lost honor.

But aside from that, Edward and Altair are just as different ( But alike) as Ezio and Connor are.

Both are very different, but have some similarities. If anything, I think Connor and Arno have more in Common with Altair than Edward and Ezio do.

Wow 2 hours to run from one side to the other - I highly highly guarantee that is false. Its roughly the size of the frontier which took about 10 minutes to run through.

What is interesting is this

I was being overly dramatic about the significance of the time difference

The UBisoft dev named nick (level designer for ACU) is on record as saying Paris is 3 times bigger then the land mass in ac4
Ac4 land mass was bigger then the frontier
Paris is bigger then the frontier

Weather Paris may only be three times bigger then the landmass of ac4 because the scale of all previous AC games was 1:3 scale and now ACU is 1:1 scale, so that could account for the 'three times bigger'

But also,

Load(s) up ac3 to run across the frontier and time it, we are talking direct across and then corner to corner :)

How is that hard to understand? Rome wasn't a 1:1 scale, that had landmarks and they were all just shoved into the map.

To say that buildings are 1:1 and you can't see how Paris is not is just baffling. Paris is MASSIVE.

No, Paris is not a 1:1 REPLICA. It's just got 1:1 scaled buildings and landmarks but obviously will not be as big as the real Paris. You walk from one side of Paris to another in real life, time how long it takes, then translate that into a game. It's not gonna happen.

Think of it as this:
If you were to run through the whole of real Paris from one corner to the other, it would take hours and hours.
In the game it will take around 10 - 20 minutes of constant running

Paris in the game is not the size of Paris in real life

However, the buildings that make up in game Paris are as big as the buildings in real life Paris.

Arno, Looks weird to me I don't know what it is. maybe in game he will look another way. Like how they did Edward. He went from handsom to kinda janky.

and as far as the watch goes. I believe it is his father's but he is always checking the time? Did executions always happen at a certain time?

also I don't know where this came from, but If it takes 2 hours to run from one end of the map to the other... that's insane. and imo way to long. I could even appreciate 30 mins. but geez. But then again on the other hand. I highly doubt that this is true.

The problem with AC3 wasn't the open spaces per se, it was the fact that there was nothing to do in them. RDR is essentially all "open space" and it didn't suffer from this at all. All AC's besides 4 have struggled to deliver content that keeps you interested in playing after the credits roll, and 3 was the worst offender IMO. After finishing all the scripted missions, the only thing to do (in any AC game) is go on murderous rampages through town, and you can't even do that in most of the frontier.

I can see what your talking about! I think they were trying to go for the "shock" factor and have an overall different approach with their CGI Trailers. and focus more on the new abilities and staying true to what they have said I suppose that's come from rehashes of e3 footage and the new parkour/ freerunning features.

It might sound too far fetched, but weather is almost that unpredictable in the Caribbean, mostly in the rainy season.

I went to Costa Rica a couple of times -a non island country located in Central America- and in the coasts its weather went from the bluest sky ever to tropical storm and then to the sun shining again that sudden without any "transitions" in a PRETTY short period, like one hour or so.

I wont say though, there no "light rain"in between, but weather behaves that crazy!

Yeah I'm pretty sure we'll get rain. I don't know about snow though. Here's a quote from Kotaku:


The removal of the automatic day-night system, in favor of locking the time of day in the game at various times. The idea is to keep players from feeling rushed and from having some of their in-game progress reset by the quick passing of sunrise and sunset. (I wonder, but didn't ask, if it's also because of changes to how the game world will be illuminated and animated.)

Well one of the screenshots in the "new images" thread shows it raining at night, so weather is in. I wouldn't think deep snow would be, though. It only ever made a difference in the frontier and open spaces anyway, and we don't seem to be getting many of those this time; it would be a bit of a waste to include it really. It might spit snow during certain sequences, but I wouldn't bet on it.

As for the day and night cycle, it's supposed to be a fixed time of day in every sequence, but I would think they'd have a cheat/option/Animus hack that let you change it post-game.

It's too cool an effect to pass up. In fact, in the latest IGN 'making of' video, one of the devs was proudly talking about how they're able to show puddles forming on the streets, drying up, and whatnot, on 'current gen' hardware.

well if it's 2:56, the Hour hand should be closer to 3. I have a feeling this mission is a timed mission and you have to get to the execution to save Elise otherwise she will be guillotined, and then it will black out into a Paradox and then Colonel Roy Campbell will scream "SNAAAAAAAAAAAKE!"
