He just cut the hood off into a collar :p

Anyways do you think we will have new trailer? I hope they won't recycle the Gamescom ones.

JustPlainQuirky
08-21-2014, 08:58 PM
I thought that at first. But I think his collar folds in a way that has to be sewn properly to be shaped like that.

Then again, it's just a video game not sewing accuracy 101

Story trailer?

Haytham Trailer?

Templar Trailer?

I'm just guessing...

Not a Haytham trailer, this game is about Shay.

I think we will get a gameplay montage. It's too early for a story trailer imo, game comes out November so I would expect to see that late September earliest.

Yeah, a trailer with the theme of hunting down Assassins would be nice. Kinda like the CGI announcement trailer, but longer.

Hmm, this is just random thinking, but it would be neat if they add in those mercy kills like the one in The Last of Us MP. You have the choice to either kill the target or let him bleed out when you hurt the character enough. It ties into the announcement trailer of the Assassin on his knees and Shay pulls out his rifle.

I hope there's more to the gameplay than raiding hideouts, sinking ships and tailing people.

And that the kills and hideouts we finish actually tie to overall story, and not just side quests.

Hmm...I guess you're right fatal. But I actually would like if we could literally see the Assassin influence go down piece by piece, that eventually we see two or more random Assassin 'Brothers' accusing and killing one another on who's gone 'Rogue'.

I think it'd be an epic thing to see... ;)

AC3 is 20 years after Assassin’s Creed Rogue. So, first it’s a city 20 years younger and given the fact that this is the New World 20 years matters a lot. Second, in AC3 you will probably remember that one third of the city was completely burned down due to the Great Fire. We’ve rebuilt it completely, but what we’ve done for the parkour and for the navigation is we’ve made a complete overhaul of the whole city in order to make sure that we have fully streamlined rooftop navigation, even across the wide streets. And you have absolutely smooth free-runs wherever you go.We’ve added new elements to the parkour, for example you have new fast means of getting up tall buildings, getting down from tall buildings. But this is again capitalising on the existing system and then adding new elements which are enhancing it further, rather than taking the grand approach of Unity which is essentially technologically impossible.

Also I remember someone posted a interview that mentions back-eject wall jumping for climbing up/down buildings.

Let me rephrase.

It was logical to assume that the poster was referring to Unity rather than Rogue re: parkour, because the Rogue engine is based off of AC:IV - Black Flag's engine, and therefore wouldn't have new parkour. (That's my understanding at least)

Why is it that I'm more excited about the gameplay for Rogue than Unity when they are being described? I know it's similar, but the way they describe it makes it sound really refined. It almost feels as if they're not showing us all the new stuff.

I like the interviewer. He clarifies ahead of time not to give a BS answer and gets super specific so it's hard to dodge a proper answer.

The producer of Rogue is terrible at dodging questions. He doesn't even try to pretend he's not answering something completely different. I don't blame him considering answering honestly might make the game look bad.

All he needs to say is that it is improved. He doesn't need to start listing new features. I honestly loved ACIV, so I am really excited for this. I still find playing AC1 fun, so I'm sure I'll enjoy this.

They do it for 'new customers'. What baffles me is that they keep touring all these different events, only to recite the same old 'press releases', which they already have on their websites. I wonder whether these events are anything more than occasions for tourism and career networking. Just like most of the big conferences in academia.
