There is a thread on Reddit that mentions it.Something about IGN posting stuff on monday.I don't know if it is true or not.
Does it mean that we will get previews etc?

If so I'll be going quiet tillafter release day. This close now to getting the game, I don't want anything to spoil it for me.

Yeah I think I am gonna go dark soon too. They're probably gonna show off some story info very soon, which I definetly do not want spoiled.

Guys,i do not understand.Are previews so bad? :p
I also suspect that IGN will finally upload the 3rd part of the series on Monday,which has to do with the story so that means it will be spoilery,maybe a lot!
But i can't wait 40 days without any AC trailer...

^Thats an official story trailer, not a preview

Previews are generally just people talking about a mission. I doubt they would be playing a heavily spoilery mission.

Yeah I kinda misread the quote, but my point was that I never watch story trailers or anything similar.

Then again, I don't mind spoilers, unless something spoils the end of the game.

I am almost the complete opposite, the less I know about a game the better. For example I knew almost nothing about the Batman Arkham games when they came out and ended up loving them ALOT, where as with AC4 I knew almost everything from what the marketing told and found it to be kind of meh the first time I played it.

AC3's previews weren't too spoilery, but there were a lot of them. The press were given free rein over sequence 6 IIRC.

The one thing I'm looking forward to the most is hopefully a deeper look into the combat system, with Arno taking on a minimum of 5 guards.

IGN will start posting their "Why I am super hyped for Unity!!!"-articles, only so they can say how terrible they thought the game was on some podcast a few months from now :rolleyes:.

Nah jk, I'm sure Unity actually will be very cool. But IGN previews have zero credibility in my book.

No, they've played five hours of it and will probably be doing some sort of write-up detailing its strengths and weaknesses. We aren't getting a stream of 5 hours worth of gameplay, that would be insane. But, IGN being IGN, I'm sure it will be chock full of spoilers nonetheless, so read at your own risk.

I'll read the articles for impressions.

Going to refrain from watching gameplay - want to see everything for myself. By the way does the fact there's a set embargo give cause for concern? Or is that normal?

That's normal.

There are embargos for everything. I think theres Far Cry 4 previews going up Monday too

I'm gonna go ahead and say there's no freakin' way. We might get one small mission with each of them, but that's it. DEFINITELY no city for each of them.

I am not sure how I feel about that. I would like a few dev videos talking about the game rather than impressions from 5 hours of the game, it can be very spoilery.

Yeah, and ironically enough, sequence 6 was pretty much the best and most in-line with other AC games in terms of design principles sequence of AC3.

Don't worry IGN is not only site that went on press event. Also there were two press events i think, one in Paris few weeks ago and one in US recently. Expect gameplay videos for ACU and ACR, previews in textual form, new screenshots etc. :D

I just hope they release a CGI story trailer instead of just spoiling the story bit by bit with this type of marketing campaign. It would be much better to watch Arno for example, helplessly watching Eliseís dad get killed and then gets framed for his murder or watching him staring at a P.O.E. rather than watching two people talk in an interview full of information that Iíve heard 2300250240602436 times before with maybe, just maybe a few new story-related details.

Yes, yes they are.

I don't get how that trailer is bad. And I hate spoilers.

All that told me about AC3 was:
-Protagonist is Native American
-Something bad happens to his peaceful life (duh)
-He meets someone who is or was connected to the Assassins (duh)
-He trains and becomes an Assassin (duh)
-Bad stuff happens to his people (BIGGEST DUH)
-You interact with Washington at some point (which was sort of given considering how they utilized historical characters in the Ezio games)
-The colonials are not the greatest of allies because history (again...duh)


That didn't reveal anything about who the Templars were aside from a quick glimpse, didn't reveal the "twist" of Haytham being a Templar, didn't reveal any of the modern day details, nothing. How was that at all bad?

I agree with you I didn't think it was that bad. However I know that some people love playing the games experiencing what happens for the first time... and in the trailer you see Connor as a child and you see him go to a chilled and ask to be trained. I think they showed a lot of those kinds of things. However the trailer was amazing for it.

Ubisoft embargoes are traditionally lifted at 5PM BST. So if we are getting previews today, they should be up in around 2 hours.
