    How about a game set in modern times, that is not in a VR setting and that allows me to actually feel the tension and know that I am not in a pre determined VR setting?

    Not sure what to think about this, I guess I'll have to wait for E3 then.

    I don't see how there isn't tension. You still don't know what that particular character's fate is, even in VR. If Desmond as himself was in the program, then there would be little to no tension at all, unless things went screwy and he got trapped inside like in Tron.

    I haven't played an Assassin's Creed game since the second one.

    This will change.

    I haven't played Assassins Creed whatsoever, but if the game is as interesting as this poster then count me in.

    I'm starting to suspect that the Assassin we are following this time has a different choice in primary weapons. It doesn't look like he carries a sword or dagger and fancies his tomahawk a lot. This image here made me wonder something though:

    [​IMG]

    I think we may be getting a dual-weapon wielding feature with this game, with the tomahawk in one hand and a pistol in another. If so, I am going to enjoy that. It'll be like all that slaughtering Mel Gibson did in The Patriot. I also enjoy how his outfit is a cross between the Assassin robes (the hood) and 18th military uniforms. I'm curious as to how armor upgrades will work, since plate armor wasn't really used by the military at the time.

    My question is whose side will the Assassin's be fighting on, the Revolutionaries or the the British.

    Assassin Lore has already labelled the founding fathers as evil Templars.

    Also, on a related note, I find it intensely eerie that this game is set during the American Revolution because back when Brotherhood was first released, my roommate and I use to joke about ideas for AC3 and this was one of them.

    That is something to think about. I mean there really weren't any huge cities or tall building back them in the US, where there?

    There were some (Boston could feature significantly, for instance, and be pretty cool), but not on the scale of the Old Worlds, and they kinda lack the timelesss sense of history that is what attracted me to the series to begin with.

    That said, it'll probably look very nice, and have qualities of it's own. I'm waiting for screenshots before I say whether it does anything for me personally.

    (Although the fact that the art all features trees and hills is worrying me. Could just be cover art and nothing more significant, but trees and hills are trees and hills, and don't really immerse in the period as much as an old time city would, if you get my meaning.)

    I've revised my estimates to cautiously optimistic. I hope it turns out good, and I'll probably get it after a while, but I'm kinda burnt out on the whole franchise right now, and would like plot to happen.

    There were a few leaked scans that showed a lot of forests and mountains, couple of towns, too.

    Edit: Here are a few

    so well get to climb trees this time.
    im guessing the tallest point in the games gonna be a mountain. a bit disapointing, one of the highlights for me was climbing some of the tallest buildings in the games, oh well still excited for this, might actually get Revelations now its starting to go down in price a good bit.

    Awesome images. It'll be fun to have some missions in the back woods of early America.

    Lastly, are we still getting the classic hidden blade(s)? I'm seeing more tomahawk and pistol than anything.
