    I like the setting but I presume its going to make us British look like monsters despite it hinting that    the American founding fathers are Templar's with George Washington having an apple of Eden   . Why would a native Indian support the Americans? One of the main reasons for rebellion was the Americans were pissed off at Britain for restricting settlement westward to protect native Indian land (lands being "reserved" to the Indians under the cognizance of the British Crown). Great Britain was supporting the tribes and the majority of Indians were on loyalist side because of this (or neutral).

    And well, lets not forget the native Indian genocide committed later on with their land being taken away from them and subjected to discrimination.

    That's the only thing that bugs me about the game.

    Native Americans fought on both sides in the war, not just for the British.

    Yeah but the majority did support the British because they didn't want the Colonists to take over their land and were hoping a defeat might send them all back to where they came from.

    though I am interested if this game is going to be black and white or just shades of grey as the character realizes how shit both sides are.

    Well what if it's just not drawn and you get it later in game like in some of the series?
    Possible, but it sounded like SaketM's main selling point was the fact that it has guns, which is totally not the point of these games.

    I find the lack of hidden blade disturbing...




    Looks like a hidden blade to me.

    using a bow and arrow is something I really like idea of

    though I wonder how the colonists will sound, because Americans get their accent from a mix of Irish and German mainly with the British, I presume they will sound English mainly.

    I think there was a bit of something resembling an American accent then, it was obvious enough to tell a colonial apart. Either way, they'll probably keep it as modern American and modern English, just because it's easier.

    He will probably have one, the modern Assassins like Desmond are still using it. I just hope that they will stay with only one blade like in AC1. Also they should leave the hook out of this game.

    I also hope that they will make completely new animations and moves, not only rehash the old ones. The fighting moves were pretty much always the same except for a few new ones.

    most likely gets a second one later in the game. hidden blades get more and more ceremonial as time passes by though

    adding to that, the dual hidden blade is altair's invention. if the main character comes across anything written by altair, we have a high chance of obtaining a second blade.

    Really can't wait for this, so far.. but a lot of time to work on the story. I hope there is character development like AC2, it's what drew me in.

    Also, I hope we don't have too much "battle" style soundtrack all the time. I thought it was refreshing in AC2 where there was calm and relaxing soundtracks which immersed you in the Italian Renaissance.

    Kyd is a genius and a master at conveying themes by using music

    if there is anything we don't need to worry about, it's the music

    At least 50 % of hitmans atmosphere was the music made by Kyd. Guy's a miracle worker and fuck I/O for replacing him.

    Jesper Kyd to video games is like Hans Zimmer to movies, they are both heavy on percussion along with synthesizers.

    it is a shades of grey game from the beginning

    the templars believe they are doing good, just like the assassins. just because we have been shown the assassins as good, doesn't mean they are

    True, although I love this setting and I have no problems with guns being common.

    Edited:

    Also, to that whole "Two Characters" thing, Remember that we might get another character getting older throughout the game.

    The Assassin's kill for the greater good, Templar's brainwash "for the greater good".

    Here is a basic rundown of the new features in the upcoming GameInformer article, to be released next week:

    The new Assassin is the son of a Native American woman and a British soldier. His calls himself Connor, but his birth name is Ratohnhakť:ton. Born into the Mohawk, he eventually crosses paths with the Assassins in his search for righteousness.

    Connor is quiet and stoic, letting actions speak for words rather than conversing with others. In contrast to Ezio, Connor is a freedom fighter who acts in the name of justice rather than on personal revenge.

    The game is set between 1753 and 1783, meaning we will be playing a good chunk of Connor's life, about the timeframe of Assassin's reed II and Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood combined.

    Settings will include Boston, New York and a large countryside. The countryside will be the setting of about 1/3 of the game, and will be the location of many events during the game. The countryside will be about 1.5 times as big as Rome in Brotherhood

    The protagonist will fight on the American side, with primary allies George Washington, Benjamin Franklin and Charles Lee. However, this does not mean that the Americans are the good guys and the British are the bad guys. Templars are everywhere

    There will be seasons in the game, meaning that the sun will shine during summer and the landscape will be covered in snow during winter.

    Fighting and stealth will be completely re-innovated, with Connor being compared to a “predator”. The player will be able to climb trees and other natural elements, and dual-wielding weapons such as a dagger and a mohawk is now also an option.

    Animals will be present in the woods, like deer and bears. The player will be able to kill them and pelt their skins, to sell them later with the reformed economic system of the game.

    There will be puzzles similar to The Truth, only they will not be given by Subject 16.

    Desmond will go into the new Animus 3.0 and will find himself going into “significant events”.

    100% sync in memories returns, though this time you will be rewarded when you complete memories to 100%. Checkpoints will also be introduced to mission replay, meaning you don’t have to replay an entire mission to get that 100% sync.

    The Brotherhood, or Assassins Guild, will return in some form, albeit differently than we have seen before.

    There will be no more Mercenaries, Thieves, Courtesans, Romani or other factions, but there will be a replacement for them.

    Den Defense will not return.

    Huh.. weird. Most of the natives fought on the British side.. I wish he was more in the middle because jokes on him when his tribe gets fucked over by the colonists.

    Oh and according to the lore George was a templar who started the war to get an Apple so.. ??

    Oh god, these informations sound sexy as hell. The screenshots are simply epic.

    So it turns out that Connor is switching between sides, but mostly operating for the rebels. Sounds really epic to me.
