There's a rumor going around based on some info in the product listing on Xbox.com apparantly that says there might be co-op. I don't know if that would be specific to the 360 version but I bet if it's included at all it will also be included in the PS3 version. Anyway, here's a write up on it:
One concern I have is about aiming. I didn't like how there was really no aiming in previous AC games. When using a gun, you pressed a button and it automatically locked on. For stuff like hunting, I really hope we get to aim manually. Or else it's way too easy.
Went to Gamestop today to pick up my copy of Mass Effect 3 for the PC. Then they asked if I wanted to pre-order AC3. Of course I said yes, then they gave me this very nice collectors tin case!
Note: I put images in spoiler tags as they are quite large - DarkVincent07
[email protected] awesome it looks & how they've already got them in considering the existence of the game has been known for such a short time
I'll read up on it a little, the first one didn't have much story to worry about. If the other installments are good as people say then I'll check out some summaries. Mostly though, the gameplay looks interesting enough.
Kinda surprised people are so disappointed with this teaser, I though the deaths were fairly cool actually. Then again I haven't been up on AC all that much.
This games looks like its going to focus on the environment, which is a bit disappointing. AC games are all about the city dont see why they should change it. Not that american cities will be worth visting anyway.
buying it, i think they should have picked another date besides halloween, but im still picking it up even though thats the day i stay at lemp mansion on halloween
they got a preorder outta me. im a sucker for the metal game cases. ;)
Seasons, ageing confirmed
If like us you're a little starved for details on Ubisoft's newly revealed Assassin's Creed 3 you'll be glad to hear a bunch of new gameplay details and some concept artwork have shown up online. Prepare to feast.
The deets come courtesy of Game Informer, which also managed to get its hands on some of the concept art guides that inform the aesthetic, setting, characters, and tone of the game.
http://cdn.medialib.computerandvideo...mb_wide300.jpg According to the mag, Boston, the setting of historical events such as the Boston Tea Party, the Boston Massacre and various sieges with the word 'Boston' in them, will be one of two major cities that players will be able to skulk their way around in AC3.
Since the city has a plentiful amount of tall buildings, churches and docks, this is where the traditional building-scaling acrobatics and leaps of faith will take place.
New York, presumably the other big explorable city in AC3, can be seen in the images below following the Great Fire of New York. The circumstances of this devastating incident still remain a mystery, could the Assassin's have been involved somehow? Probably.
Ubisoft Montreal is keen on exploring the battles of the American Revolution - as indicated by details on its new AnvilNext engine - but will task Connor, the main character of AC3, with ancillary goals.
As shown in the first trailer, and pointed out in our Assassin's Creed 3 dissected, 'tree-running' (see what we did there?) will be a big part of the game since players will be able to explore America's 'vast wilderness'.
AC3 will have a seasonal cycle which - along with the obvious visual changes - will impact gameplay too. Enemies and NPCs will behave differently in winter and frozen pools of water will offer Connor new ways to get around and hunt down his prey.
Much like the Ezio's transition from young Italian whippersnapper to passionately driven assassin in AC2, players will take control of Connor in various stages of his life. Ubisoft's concept image shows the half-English, half-Native American before he joins the Assassin order.
As you've probably guessed by now, important historical figures like Ben Franklin, George Washington and Charles Lee will also make an appearances and it seems like Connor will be interacting with them regularly.
I'm excited to know we see him in different stages of his life, I really thought that was awesome in AC2.
Really seems like they are going all out with this, sounds great!
I'm still not sold on this game as yet. need to see the actual game play and how the stealth is done. And hope that the side mission are not repetitive
With more info about ACIII that comes out the more excited I get. Will have to pre-order this over the weekend to get the metal case.
I'm hardpressed to pick between the art on the Steel Book and the revealed cover art.
The revealed Cover Art looks pretty B.A. itself.
