Hello all.

First of all, i want to explain why i made this topic and what i want it to become.

Why i made this thread
I made this topic more because of an answer on the VIDEO THREAD and FJUI's blog. What are we with all these videos. I don't think a lot of peep are interesting in watching all these vids to get up with what news there is of assassin's creed. I've seen that FJUI (could spell it a little wrong, sorry for that one) is pretty busy these days so her blog isn't updated the regulary anymore. So let's help her out.

what i hope to reach with it
Ok, let's list in this thread all the facts there are about assassin's creed. Not all the details, but everything can be posted. Guessings can be posted to.

they have said the game was never designed as a shooter so it wont go that way. the third one will still be in the past just closer to our time.

AC3 has more chance of beinf the late 19th/early 20th century. as it looks like they are tracking something through time so the later game should help them track it closer to the present day.

the da vinci's code is based on no truth at all... all of it was made up... people don't know if da vinci did any of that. in fact most of his work was done for churches.

- Hidden Gun replaces throwing knives


I think that you should change that. We know that Throwing Knives will be in the game, and we know the gun will be in the game. Both weapons have advantages and disadvantages, so it stands to reason that we will have access to both of them (I'd wager at the same time, too).

caswallawn_2k7
06-14-2009, 05:01 AM
hidden gun would take too long and be hard to reload making it an unreliable weapon if it replaced the throwing knives.

DearDirty
06-14-2009, 05:20 AM
I figure that the hidden gun would only really have a one shot limit, or you'd need to take some time to reload it.

@ Stormpen, The Da Vinci Code was completely fictional.

Stormpen

OK,OK!

The Da Vinci Code is a LIE! (!!!)

LET ME UPDATE MY POST....

-Ezio IS a ladies man
-Templar's know Ezio is following the Creed.
-Da Vinci is helping out because he is a lovely, kindhearted soul.

They're in the same Ancestral Line, so genetically they're supposed to look similar, and so they do look similar. Except Ezio has his red shroud now, thats better... and his clothes are better... and his 2 hidden blades are better... Lets face it, I"m better.

take look at this:http://images.bit-tech.net/content_images/2008/05/assassin-s-creed-director-s-cut/b10.jpg

Altair looks same as Desmont.
so i was thinking that thy all use the same model.

Sarcross
06-14-2009, 08:51 AM
Well yeah its probably the same model, just updated in a few ways. Its a smart thing really, they don't have to do any major work on him, and we'll have to guess that Al Mualim's model is in there along with Lucy's, so really all they needed to do is change them a little and do townspeople and people to assassinate.

Stormpen
06-14-2009, 08:52 AM
Sooo, Al Mualim = Da Vinci?

Sarcross
06-14-2009, 08:56 AM
Thats what I'd been thinking, and I'm not completely sure how its going to work out. But didn't the guy in the demo that got Ezionated look like Al Mualim to you all?

So desmont will become altair/ezio mix and save the world,

Sarcross
06-14-2009, 09:10 AM
Ubi said that they were done with Altair on the consoles, so it'll just be Ezio until AC 3 and it'll be Bobbert or something like that.

But I'd have to say that Ezio looks better, no homo, mostly because of the clothes. IF somebody makes some, I"ll buy them.

Joystiq: I saw in the trailer that he made a gun for Ezio, attached to his wrist.

Patrice: Yeah.

Joystiq: How does that work in the game? Will you have an aiming reticle?

Patrice: We're working on the gun mechanics right now in Montreal. I cannot go into too detail because we are not pleased with what we have right now. Basically, the gun is replacing the throwing knives.

In the first game you could throw some throwing knives and you would kill with one shot. This time it's the gun that would kill with one shot but it takes more time to reload and you have to buy bullets and things like that, because we have an economic system this time around.

But the reticle, it's not about aiming. We're having fun with some concepts in Montreal about how to make that gun more fun than only marking off someone and shooting. You'll see. You'll see.

The release date is more or less a guideline for when they expect they can release it isn't it?
so for all we know they might not be capable of finishing it before January next year.
Hidden pistols, honestly i don't think it's a good piece to AC, also if you hadn't noticed during the startup scene at the start of the first game Altiar (or however it's spelt) had a little crossbow which you don't see ingame. Honestly i think it's going to be the same situation with the hidden pistol as the small crossbow.
Unless either of these have been truly confirmed and generally said they WILL be done on time or in the game.

[Start of huge rant on guards]

I hope for this one they'll fix the guards. First off, just because I choose to ride my horse at a decent speed does not make me an assassin. If a cop shot and killed someone because they walked by him at a rate of more than .0001mph, he'd be fired faster than you can say 'ASSASSIN!'. Second, when you see a mass of bodies around said assassin, assume it's not worth your life going after him and walk away, especially if most of the dead bodies are guards of equal or better skill than you. This also goes for civilians. If I am attacked by the guard first, I'm not a murderer, I'm defending myself. Also, if I do kill said load of guards, don't assume bringing even more in is going to help in any way.

I also hope that it actually becomes possible to assassinate someone WITHOUT the whole city knowing. If all the witnesses are dead, how would the whole city know?

But ******ed AI makes up part of the fun! I agree about the horse issue too though, but then again didn't they say there wouldn't be traveling between cities like Kingdom in AC? So.. no horses?

About this...

Also, if I do kill said load of guards, don't assume bringing even more in is going to help in any way.

That's their job. What are they going to do? Let you go? I can understand maybe just a small group of them turn-tailing and run like 4 guards, but other wise it's like "You b**tard!".

I thought it was funny when after you complete a save civilian they turn around sometimes and go "OMG you killed that guy!! How could you??" if you don't blend in. That's.. awkward. Then they join the other citizens in the "Gasp! Who could have done such a thing?!". First time that happened I actually just stood there in game gawking. "I saved you, and this is the thanks I get?!" lol.
That seemed a little off to me..

Typo in "the facts".

Dunno if anyone else has caught this:
- Ezio will be able to customize his clothes by visiting sailors


You put sailors and in the video it sounds like sailors but it is because of his accent.
He is actually saying tailors.

not sailors.


Tailors.

Correct it's tailor.

2 facts:
1. In the video he says that Leonardo da Vinci is providing the upgrades of Ezio's weapons and such.

2. You don't start as an assassin, you become one because of an event that's happend to you. (Example: Ezio's wife was killed.)

in this (http://www.joystiq.com/2009/06/10/interview-assassins-creed-2-creative-director-patrice-desilet/) article they mentioned that this is a fact and that you'll have to buy the bullets.


How does that work in the game? Will you have an aiming reticle?
We're working on the gun mechanics right now in Montreal. I cannot go into too detail because we are not pleased with what we have right now. Basically, the gun is replacing the throwing knives.

It will be longer to take to reload also.

That's their job. What are they going to do? Let you go? I can understand maybe just a small group of them turn-tailing and run like 4 guards, but other wise it's like "You b**tard!". </div></BLOCKQUOTE>
I agree with this. If you have killed more than 5 or six guards, a single guard walking past, should run for help before attacking. A patrol of four or more should attack, assuming you came upon the guards, or they came upon you, in smaller numbers at a time (which often happens in AC1 if you're anything like me.

I thought it was funny when after you complete a save civilian they turn around sometimes and go "OMG you killed that guy!! How could you??" if you don't blend in. That's.. awkward. Then they join the other citizens in the "Gasp! Who could have done such a thing?!". First time that happened I actually just stood there in game gawking. "I saved you, and this is the thanks I get?!" lol.
That seemed a little off to me..
And every time this happened in my game, the one who said it fell down seconds later. And never got back up.

The time I dropped an old man to his knees execution-style in front of his sons, they came the next day and helped me reach an old doctor who had been marked for the same fate. Odd, odd world we play in.

faster climbing?

i dont think that there will be faster climbing. i'm pretty sure that i heard in one of the interviews with Patrice Desilets that they already made the climbing faster than normal. if they made it any faster it would be noticably inrealistic...

Buildings can now be entered and explored, a feature which only barely appeared in the form the original's safe houses.

They say it in the tenth paragraph.

Don't know if it was posted before but this is interesting:
"He(Ezio) is shown to wield two hidden blades, and one of the blades has a "hidden gun" located on the same unit, but does not shoot the blade itself, but a spherical bullet with the Assassins emblem on it.."
And I read somewhere on this forum...don't remeber the topic but it was about his ring, whether it's the creed's simbol or his wedding ring, it's his wedding ring so he's married.
Don't know if you all knew but for me they were new facts.
Source: Wikipedia.
A couple of more facts:
# Ezio has all ten fingers, unlike Altair who had his ring finger on his hand removed to make space for the hidden blade. This is explained as Leonardo DaVinci inventing a hidden blade that placed the blade farther from palm, sparing the ring finger.
# Ezio uses a wheel lock firearm, a type of weapon that Europe didn't start developing until the very late 1400's and early 1500's, making this weapon most likely one of the very first firearms to appear in Europe, thus many people may not know what the weapon is in game. The earliest firearms were single shot and took time to reload, so will most likely be only used as a last resort weapon. Also note that DaVinci created some of the first modern wheel lock pistols, so this could be a shortened version of one.

This is a rumor, which might be considered a Guessing:

- There will be Carriages you can drive or use for missions in the game.

Fact

- Difficulty levels confirmed. (check this interview: http://www.theglobeandmail.com...ulty/article1214051/ (http://www.theglobeandmail.com/blogs/controller-freak/ubisofts-benoit-lambert-on-game-difficulty/article1214051/))

Oh btw, Adha is mentioned in AC1 too by an Informer in Damascus. I wonder who Adha is...

Informant: "Any news from Adha since she left? No? How sad... I'm sure you'll find her one day..."

After that the topic is changed...

@Luis-D
The only adha mentioned besides that is a character from Altair's chronicles. where you have to save her but she is taken to sea
@stickman
Actually there were invented in the middle 1400's in Pistoia,Italy and were actually commonly used by assassins in Europe which led to their banning in Europe so all pistols were illegal

Guessing:

Sorry, I forgot what interview I heard it on, and I don't know if it was just a slip of the tongue, but Patrice said Ezio will also have/have had a brother and sister.

It was actually in the Dev Diary #1 when one of the Devs said "when you have a mother to protect, a sister to protect".

It's another fact for the list! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

It's not confirmed if the ring is either a wedding ring or a family crest ring.

Besides this was discussed in a few threads and most of them pointed out what the bad guy in the cinematic trailer said about his parents but nothing about his wife (which might have been a better target to insult)

Patrice said you can also hide in the carriages / carts. And seekers can spot you inside too.

A fact:

There will be Templars in the game (in Ezio's time) and there will be some dealing with them.

About the thing with the hidden gun replacing the hidden blade, I've just read the interview with Benoit Lambert and he says there specifily that "We also have range weapons such as throwing knives or the Hidden Gun that you heard of already… Ezio will also use another impressive weapon but I am not going to talk about that right now".

And in the same interview "And what about a crossbow? Or a bow? Will Ezio be able to disarm an archer and get their weapon? Obviously we thought of the crossbow. We really wanted to have it for AC1. or AC2, we felt it didn’t fit with the era and like for the bows, both weapons are not easy for an assassin to wear or use… they are actually bigger than we think!"

So it seems as we will have both Throwing knives and a hidden gun.
