    Yeah having multiple characters is certainly intriguing, could you potentially play as one single character if you never die though? Surely it forces you to switch characters all the time?
    Otherwise how much dialogue must they have recorded if you can play as anyone?

    Still looks cool though, never played any of the other games

    The story reacts to your characters' deaths, that's cool.

    They're definitely trying something different and ambitious, I'll give them that.

    It’s not my cup of tea, but I’m impressed by the ambition

    I also wonder how many recruits you'll need to do full missions for like was just shown? Or are the majority just talking to people?

    Otherwise the entire game will just be recruiting people??

    I imagine that another character in cutscenes will serve that role like in a lot of FPS campaigns with silent protagonists

    It won't fit your narrow definition of a story

    God damn it, why did they have to bring up Brexit as a setting.

    Shows you how messy the situation is...

    Ugh, I hate games with silent protagonists, so yeah, this is not going to work for me. If I wanted crap like this, I'd play a Bioware game or an online game. Blows that I've waited for the next Watch_Dogs and this is what they give me. Oh well, guess I'll focus on something that has a real story.

    Old ladies being part of the resistance?

    Never thought that would ever happen, but it sounds fun!

    I'm just glad though there's a game set in London.

    This might be my first AC game. I'm generally not in the AAA open world business anymore, but this is going to be an impressive bit of work if they actually pull that level of reactivity off.

    Do they think they have enough F bombs in this trailer? It makes it sound like it's trying too hard to be edgy.

    He's no Keanu Reeves, but it's nice to see a popular actors being involved in video games.

    Also, I've heard quite a bit about "It's always sunny in Philadelphia."
