These two have some of the best kills!


Now all that's left are the Blacksmith, Soldier, Mercenary (speculated) and female Jester!

While the officer does look very slick there's only one character I'll be playing as, the Harlequin. Just for the pure psychotic intimidation to your targets and amazing assassination animations.

Love the vids http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

You can see Venice in the video of the harlequin (from 0:28 till 0:38)

I've pre-ordered from both Gamestop & Best Buy so I'll be getting BOTH of them. I didn't want to risk one or both not being released later. I've kicked myself before about pre-order bonuses. So learning from my mistakes here.

I gotta say it sucks tho that in order to get all available content it generally means having to pre-order multiple copies from different retailers. Personally I think that every retailer should have the same pre-order bonuses and collector's editions should have one or 2 extra bonuses. For example every retailer should have the Officer pre-order bonus but if you pre-order the Collector's Edition then you should ge the Harlequin as well.

No pre-order bonus should ever remain completely exclusive. The content should be released publicly as DLC content at least 3-6 months from release.

As for the videos... that leap of faith kill in the Harlequin video at 0:48 was sick. I wonder if you can really do that?

As long as someone else doesn't pick it before you do. Personally I want to play as ALL of the characters equally, even tho the Harlequin, Courtesan, Executioner, and Prowler are my favorites

Lol, that wasn't a LOF kill, it just showed him doing a LOF before switching to an air assassination, where you saw him preparing for in the previous scene.

I agree with the whole equally thing, but when i get the game, the first people i'm playing as are the ones not in the BETA!

We rock here in AUS because we get the Codex Edition which has both charcters from the one retailer http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

As for the "LOF kill". It sure looked like it the way the video was edited... he dove of the wall like a LOF but instead of landing in hay he landed on his target. When I posted about it I wasn't sure if that's really what it was or was just edited to look like it was, so that's why I wondered if it was in the game cuz if not then it means it was just how the video was edited but not really an action that a player can do.

Yeah you guys are lucky that outside North America you guys tend to get more game content in your collector editions. I guess that's the trade off since you guys generally have to deal with slower releases (usually by a few days), and sometimes much more annoying censorship.

I'll still be trying out the other characters from time to time. The developers worked hard on those so the least I can do is try them out. Every character has their own induvidual charms but the Harlequin takes the crown for me personaly.

Hm, those two look interesting. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif I'm hoping that i'll get the chance to ask my brother to pre-order the Codex ed from Play for me for my birthday next year (the pc version), i'd do it myself, but don't have an acount with play.com, and i can't set one up right now.
