If you are one of the 12 people on these forms who hasn't read the GI article, let me fill you in. There is a new attachment to the hidden blade, a "claw" of sorts. It is supposed to let you use zip lines, and climb faster. It is also supposed to pull enemies to you.
Now my question is, how does this work? I do understand it is really early in the production process, but still. I just really hope it doesn't have a really our of place animation...

Your thoughts?

Damn you. I was hoping for something new. We call it the hookblade.

I keep thinking "Hidden Atlatle" when I see "the Hookblade."

I like the idea of using it for ziplines, but not as a grapple hook, How the hell would they have made a tiny device powerful enough to lift the full weight of a person very quickly whilst only being lached onto a tiny cravice?

Yea, but when I first read the GI article for the original Assassin's Creed it said that Altair would see tall buildings with eagles flying over them, and that he would be able to "ascend" to the top for a view point. My first thought: crossbow attachment.

Well your thoughts are silly, and should be removed from your head using a drill, like 'n good 'ol days.

Where suggesting you thought that altair would get an attachment on his crossbow which fire a hook on a rope to the top of a building, and then shoot him up to the top?

I didn't say shoot Altair to the top. Besides, they didn't say how he would ascend the buildings. I knew he had a crossbow. And this was my first thought right when reading it, not really anything serious.

Well if it where any means besides good 'ol fashoined climbing, then i'd be disappointed.

I wasn't suggesting you ACTUALLY drill a hole in your head ya know.
