New info on the games structure and it is very exciting, but does spoil the very beginning of the game. More to be revealed in edge, out tomorrow. Cant Wait...

http://www.computerandvideogam...rticle.php?id=224320 (http://www.computerandvideogames.com/article.php?id=224320)



Edit:

I will drop the info in here so you don't have to dig through the topic to find it.

ENJOY!

So got the copy of EDGE today, comes in a lovely ACII Card sleeve, and the inside offers no new screenshots but a whole ton of new info, so here goes...

LOOK AWAY NOW IF YOU DONT WANT THE BEGINING OF THE GAME SPOILED


YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED

Right, I dont really have time to word for word this one so I will sum up, the info is full of holes so if I dont mention it, neither did they.

Ok, so it all starts with Desmond gaining free running ability through the animus "bleeding effect" and then he and Lucy use the Animus to find the last common ancestor of Desmond and Subject 16. This gives you a few moments of controlling a new born baby Ezio. They then escape and go to an Assassins base, where the Animus 2.0 resides (along with Sean Hastings) Desilets notes that they went back to the present too many times in ACI, so instead of jumping back and forth the Animus 2.0 allows you to keep in contact with Lucy and Shaun through audio, allowing both storylines to develop together. Thats all they tell us about that section, now onto Ezio...

You first see Florence through the eyes of a 17 year old Ezio, its the summer of 1476 and you are out walking when Viere de' Pazzi turns up and starts insulting you. A mission select tab "boys will be Boys" pops up and you are asked to accept or decline. The boys throw a rock, which hits Ezio in the face (leaving him with his characteristic lip scar) and a fist fight begins, a tutorial in the basics of combat, including the new ability to grab we saw in the TGS coverage. Frederico (Ezios older brother) turns up to take Ezio to a doctor, but Ezio has no money and so they loot the unconscious boys and go off to the street doctor. Here the article reveals that the health system works like Farcry 2, a series of segments that will recharge if partially full, but when empty will need to be recovered by a doctor visit or health vials. Then your bro Frederico challenges you to a race to a church roof, cue the first free running section (which according to the article is complete with unsure and stumbling animation from Ezio) which should be a great feeling of experiencing Ezio's first rooftop race. Apparently these rooftop races will appear throughout the game as missions. (its worth noting here that individual missions can be replayed as individual memories through the animus database, ie once they are completed they can be selected from the animus menus). Once on the rooftop you are introduced to your first reach high point (which reveals the minimap and icon system) and leap of faith. After this Christina Vespucci is introduced (Ezios ladyfriend) who you get to take to bed through a kind of interactive cutscene, although dont worry about Hot Coffee style scenes, EDGE describes it as "too measured to be considered a QTE". This ends with a chase and evasion through the city, with her fathers guards (oh dear) hot on your heels.

Once safe in the family home Ezio can choose from three missions. The first is collecting feathers from rooftops within a time limit for his younger brother (rewarded with an upgrade) The second comforting your sister Claudia because her beloved has been getting a little too friendly with the courtesans, and so you track him down and teach him a lesson in fist fighting. The third involves your mother, and worried about your headstrong and creative ways, she introduces you to a young painter named Leonardo Da Vinci. Although this mission is a slow walk and talk to his villa and back again, with a box of books in hand, similar to the narrative car journeys in GTA IV.



SPOILERS OVER, NEW FEATURES BELOW



So thats the beginning as they reveal it, now for the rest of the info in the article:

+ Each mission leads into the next one, you might meet a target before he becomes a target and by the time you have to assassinate him you will know all about him, this replaces the investigative sections. The same applies to locations.

+ Blend has been replaced by a fast walk, holding A enables you to quickly escape the scene of a crime, or the gaze of a guard, without breaking cover, or social conventions.

+ Courtesans can surround Ezio as a distraction (as we know) but can also be sent to specific to targets to flirt/dance etc. similar to that seen in the E3 CG trailer.

+ Day night cycle is active during free roaming, but is set during story missions.

+ There is more variety in buildings than in ACI and climbing requires preparation and route planning for the more complicated structures that resemble puzzles.

+ Agile Warrior enemies can easily dodge attacks, brutes attacks are unblockable until they have been tired out and weakened.

+ Ezio can pick up and dispose of bodies.

+ It is now possible with more assassinations to be completely undiscovered, and not be chased.

+ Ezio owns a family villa in the town of Monteriggioni, when you first see it it is ruined, but if you invest money you boost the economy and gain a regular income from the town (ala bruce wayne via fable II) although it is capped to prevent you gaining massive amounts of gold. Pictures of slain targets decorate the walls, and you can also display paintings and weapons bought from shops. The villa also acts as weapon and item storage.

+ Armour degrades in combat and must be repaired at a blacksmith.

+ The hidden blade (broken when you first find it) receives many modifications, including defensive plates for attack deflection and finally the gun.

+ Upgrades are acquired often, and the idea is to keep the player guessing and the rules changing, so you cant get bored.

So thats about it, it gives a pretty clear idea of what kind of game we can expect, with all the best bits of games like GTA and Fable II mixed in with the incredible features and story of AC. I'm off to chew something in anticipation, November cant come soon enough...

SPOLIERS:
<span class="ev_code_WHITE">I knew the game would take place over several years! I was right again *coughKZaarcough*. I knew it was Ezio or Leo in the trailer saying "30 years ago", I was right again again. And Desmond escapes Abstergo to help the Assassins via a new Animus, I was right again again again (again).

Why am I not surprised?</span>

Why would it be a typo? It says play him "briefly" as a new born baby. Probably something like Fallout 3.

I've never played Fallout 3. But I can only hardly imagine what you're supposed to do as a baby.

This is what was written in that assassins creed beginning thread....it was written in very bad English...but it started about Ezio as a baby....we'll probably see Ezio's birth in a memory in the animus....a real trippy birth scene like Fallout 3...Ezio's first real memory maybe?

I would love to actively involved with his downfall because I did not like him....at all!

I don't think we'll actually play as baby Ezio, my guess is it's a cut-scene from Ezio's point of view, and we catch a glimpse of his father going out for an assassination.

09-28-2009, 09:39 AM
now this sounds about right to me i dont think ubisoft would waste some gameplay time to play with a BABY !!!! i think it`ll only be a cinematic cutscene then his father will know his ability of eagle vision somehow ? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/compsmash.gif

It says in that article that when you play as a 17year old boy its a tutorial mission to get used to fighting. So thats confirmed.

PlagueDoctor357
09-28-2009, 10:00 AM
Yeah, probably when his dad gets hung.

I'll kill you for what you have done!

Then it goes to the earlier shot in that same trailer of Ezio drawing his sword.

BAM fight guards off learning to fight, escape....get your suit and the game begins.

That's how I see it playing out anyway.

09-28-2009, 01:54 PM
Even if Ezio is 45, im sure after all those years if being an Assassin and free running al over the place he will be i pretty good shape so no real worry about him being too slow http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_razz.gif

Just found this (http://www.gamedaily.com/games/assassins-creed-2/pc/game-features/assassins-creed-2-impressions/) article.

It confirms subtitles and the fact that some characters speak in Italian. And we also learn the name of Ezio's older brother.

Are you joking?
Metal Gear Solid 4 had Solid Snake as an old man, and yet it's one of the most heralded games of this generation. It was awesome, it really gave the game character.

And playing as a baby doesn't sound bad at all.
In fact, it will probably build more connection with the player and Ezio. I think it'd be great.

there's some new mechanic that's yet to be revealed it would be so cool if it's something like a diving suit or some sort of other vehicular transport.
Also those saying the graphics suck download the Sony press conference off PSN and watch it, like I'm doing, or download the walkthrough off the UK PSN and then talk to me and remember it's not the final version!

So got the copy of EDGE today, comes in a lovely ACII Card sleeve, and the inside offers no new screenshots but a whole ton of new info, so here goes...

LOOK AWAY NOW IF YOU DONT WANT THE BEGINING OF THE GAME SPOILED


YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED

Right, I dont really have time to word for word this one so I will sum up, the info is full of holes so if I dont mention it, neither did they.

Ok, so it all starts with Desmond gaining free running ability through the animus "bleeding effect" and then he and Lucy use the Animus to find the last common ancestor of Desmond and Subject 16. This gives you a few moments of controlling a new born baby Ezio. They then escape and go to an Assassins base, where the Animus 2.0 resides (along with Sean Hastings) Desilets notes that they went back to the present too many times in ACI, so instead of jumping back and forth the Animus 2.0 allows you to keep in contact with Lucy and Shaun through audio, allowing both storylines to develop together. Thats all they tell us about that section, now onto Ezio...

You first see Florence through the eyes of a 17 year old Ezio, its the summer of 1476 and you are out walking when Viere de' Pazzi turns up and starts insulting you. A mission select tab "boys will be Boys" pops up and you are asked to accept or decline. The boys throw a rock, which hits Ezio in the face (leaving him with his characteristic lip scar) and a fist fight begins, a tutorial in the basics of combat, including the new ability to grab we saw in the TGS coverage. Frederico (Ezios older brother) turns up to take Ezio to a doctor, but Ezio has no money and so they loot the unconscious boys and go off to the street doctor. Here the article reveals that the health system works like Farcry 2, a series of segments that will recharge if partially full, but when empty will need to be recovered by a doctor visit or health vials. Then your bro Frederico challenges you to a race to a church roof, cue the first free running section (which according to the article is complete with unsure and stumbling animation from Ezio) which should be a great feeling of experiencing Ezio's first rooftop race. Apparently these rooftop races will appear throughout the game as missions. (its worth noting here that individual missions can be replayed as individual memories through the animus database, ie once they are completed they can be selected from the animus menus). Once on the rooftop you are introduced to your first reach high point (which reveals the minimap and icon system) and leap of faith. After this Christina Vespucci is introduced (Ezios ladyfriend) who you get to take to bed through a kind of interactive cutscene, although dont worry about Hot Coffee style scenes, EDGE describes it as "too measured to be considered a QTE". This ends with a chase and evasion through the city, with her fathers guards (oh dear) hot on your heels.

Once safe in the family home Ezio can choose from three missions. The first is collecting feathers from rooftops within a time limit for his younger brother (rewarded with an upgrade) The second comforting your sister Claudia because her beloved has been getting a little too friendly with the courtesans, and so you track him down and teach him a lesson in fist fighting. The third involves your mother, and worried about your headstrong and creative ways, she introduces you to a young painter named Leonardo Da Vinci. Although this mission is a slow walk and talk to his villa and back again, with a box of books in hand, similar to the narrative car journeys in GTA IV.



SPOILERS OVER, NEW FEATURES BELOW



So thats the beginning as they reveal it, now for the rest of the info in the article:

+ Each mission leads into the next one, you might meet a target before he becomes a target and by the time you have to assassinate him you will know all about him, this replaces the investigative sections. The same applies to locations.

+ Blend has been replaced by a fast walk, holding A enables you to quickly escape the scene of a crime, or the gaze of a guard, without breaking cover, or social conventions.

+ Courtesans can surround Ezio as a distraction (as we know) but can also be sent to specific to targets to flirt/dance etc. similar to that seen in the E3 CG trailer.

+ Day night cycle is active during free roaming, but is set during story missions.

+ There is more variety in buildings than in ACI and climbing requires preparation and route planning for the more complicated structures that resemble puzzles.

+ Agile Warrior enemies can easily dodge attacks, brutes attacks are unblockable until they have been tired out and weakened.

+ Ezio can pick up and dispose of bodies.

+ It is now possible with more assassinations to be completely undiscovered, and not be chased.

+ Ezio owns a family villa in the town of Monteriggioni, when you first see it it is ruined, but if you invest money you boost the economy and gain a regular income from the town (ala bruce wayne via fable II) although it is capped to prevent you gaining massive amounts of gold. Pictures of slain targets decorate the walls, and you can also display paintings and weapons bought from shops. The villa also acts as weapon and item storage.

+ Armour degrades in combat and must be repaired at a blacksmith.

+ The hidden blade (broken when you first find it) receives many modifications, including defensive plates for attack deflection and finally the gun.

+ Upgrades are acquired often, and the idea is to keep the player guessing and the rules changing, so you cant get bored.

So thats about it, it gives a pretty clear idea of what kind of game we can expect, with all the best bits of games like GTA and Fable II mixed in with the incredible features and story of AC. I'm off to chew something in anticipation, November cant come soon enough...

He worked for the Medici family in Florence, Italy and in Seville, Spain as well. It's plausible that she is his sister, but I don't think he had any kids.

Why would EDGE pay them money? Thats the opposite of the way games journalism works...

I assume its because they have pretty good relations with Patrice, having been onto his talent way back when he did sands of time.

Plus the article is actually pretty skeptical in tone...

A lot of details about his life were murky. Quiet frankly, the only way you could find out is to read through the Vespucci papers- a quick search on the internet will reveal that there is no solid proof that he had kids. However, it was a large family that branched out, so he could have plenty of sisters or cousins. Maybe in the game they made her his daughter, but I still can't find anything that really says it was true.

EDIT: If they were brother and sister, they would have a common father, and their father Nastagio Vespucci was involved in banking amongst other things. Besides, Amerigo spent a lot of time traveling and spent a portion of his life in Spain with various business ventures.

How come so much information on the start of the game is coming out so soon before release? </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

Probably because either Edge payed them a HUGE sum of money, or because they promised to give a certain 10/10.

I doubt the 2nd one however, as this game is sure to receive a lot of extremely high grades. </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

Why would EDGE pay them money? Thats the opposite of the way games journalism works...

I assume its because they have pretty good relations with Patrice, having been onto his talent way back when he did sands of time.

Plus the article is actually pretty skeptical in tone...

EDIT: The article doesn't say anything about a vespucci brother, but it does mention her father... </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

The reason is simple, and it happens a lot.

It's an extremely anticipated game, so early details like this will sell magazines like hell.

This is how marketing i believe works with journalism. Edge in this case.

Producers give magazines information the would sell and produce a lot of money * as Coolgerb said* and in return, they get some publicity and some profit/share of the money from the magazines *Edge*

Here are a few small tidbits that I got from the Gamerzine online magazine that was just released. Not a lot of new stuff but here are some new(ish) points (some have been hinted at or are kind of obvious)oh and there are some minor spoilers...

Here we go:
- The game begins right after AC1 with Desmond looking at the red text on the walls and floors. Lucy comes in all bloody trying to get you into the animus (not new but I thought I would share the bloody description http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/59.gif)
- There will be a short prologue for those that haven't played the first AC
- First memory is a graphic birth and eventually it asks you to wiggle Ezio's arms and legs
- Not only is your father and brother (I repeat brother in a singular sense!)hanged, but also a close FRIEND is hanged. Unlike the thought of your father and two brothers...
-It says we are able to "shape" the character (Ezio), but it doesn't really say how. whether they just mean the clothes and armor I am not sure. Ah! It seems to say that different upgrades will modify Ezio's abilities! I guess heavier armor will cause him to move slower and he will be less agile and stuff like that...
- Each weapon has different values for speed, damage and deflection and armor increases Ezio's health...
- To make money you will be able to loot dead soldiers, find treasure chests or INVESTING IN BUSINESSES

Those seem to be the biggest points. I was hoping for some more new stuff but a couple of these things are interesting... the investments and modifying of the abilities with new upgrades. The most shocking thing was the death of your friend, I(we) thought it was just your brothers but it seems we were wrong...

oh and here is a link if you would like to download the mag yourself (its free):

This may seem nit picky but that Kotaku article had a rhetorical grammar error in it. It said, "...presentation of the upcoming title by Patrice Desilets and his beard". Two things listed ajacently should go in decending order or importance. "...presentation of the upcoming title by Patrice Desilets' beard and himself".

Patrice even eluded to it himself in one of the E3 interviews. "I thought of Assassin's Creed while I was in the shower - interesting fact, I read that the hot water stimulates the neurons <pre class="ip-ubbcode-code-pre">in my beard.</pre>" He whispered it so you may not have heard it.

The decline accept thing is there for every mission, it doesn't mean do it, don't do it, it means start the mission, or walk around some more, so you definitely get the lip scar either way, I think its maybe just an issue in the art, all the in game images seem to have a scar...

Wouldn't you like to be able to decline it so that you can go prepare yourself better? I think there's a magazine that somebody quoted saying that certain types of armor will affect Ezio's mobility. If were wearing really heavy armor and then mission would require you to be light on your feet, wouldn't you like the chance to effeciently equip youself before being forced into the mission?

What are you talking about "Harder"? If anything, this game will be way easier than the first.

They already said their intentions are simply to make you feel and look like a badass as you play. There are more ways to kill and assassinate and escape than ever before.

I think you missunderstand. It is true that Ubi wants the player to feel like a badass while they play; however, they aren't doing this by making the game incredibly easy. They are giving the player more options to challenge their skill at planning and their cunning. It's not like the combat which is based on the players timing and reflexes.

However, I would say that Ubi has made escaping easier. It's just that they didn't want the player to have to spend so much time running from guards so they made more opportunities to escape and thus shorten that part of the gameplay to about 30 seconds.

Prototype did a pretty good job at that; they made you feel like an indestructible badass while at the same time making you feel challenged. The reason AC1 was so easy was because the combat was pretty much sit, wait, click. With Prototype you had to be continually on the move if you ever wanted to survive an encounter. Hopefully they'll make ACII a little more "hectic".

They never mentiond diffuculty LEVELS, they were talking about a similar concept to that of Fable 2. Basically if you're a hardcore player and want a challenge, you play "deeper" into the game, making it more difficult, or if you're a casual player, you just skim through the top layer of the game, making it easier.

Also I think they mentioned to make it harder there will be side goals, for example not being detected during your mission. If you're detected, it won't mean you fail, but if you want more of a challenge you can stay undetected and you will recieve a better reward.

maybe later in the game but not when your 17 as you're not an assassin at that time. So you have no weapons. The street brawl is a fist fight without weapons
