I don't know about you but I am praying that we can use that bow and arrow hes rockin there on his back and hopefully he will have a completely different set of combat moves from the other asasssins. I want that tomahawk hes got there O.O (sorry in the process of nerd). And above all do you think we will see him dual wielding ?

EDIT: the tomahawk is in the shape of the assassins symbol :D

why? the bow wont be much different (maybe slowe) than the xbow in ac2 and the tomohawk is just another sword like weapon.

Yeah, the bow and arrow will function like the crossbow in Brotherhood and Revelations. I think the tomahawk will act like the axe and will be able to throw it and pick it up again.

TThe Ojibway symbol looks quite similar to his hood print.

I think he may be my new favorite ancestor but it's a bit early to tell. I think he looks totally badass except for the indian boots and the necklace but as far as the hoodie, coat, vest, tomahawk, and bow and arrows, I'm totally onboard. I just wish they would at least tell us what his name is!

I'm sorry but your wrong, the bow and arrow will add a lot more gameplay then the crossbow. The assassin can shoot more then one arrow killing more then one target at once, and even shoot an arrow with a rope and use it as a zipline

indeed, the boots are a little to much.

I hope the main character isnt taking sides in this war. Because in my opinion none of them were the "good guys".

Look at Altair, he didnt take sides during the Crusades.

I really hope this character be better than Ezio and Altair if do my new favourite character in every thing.

New combat movements very welcome, owm free running and stealthy attacks would be great too, new weapons look amazing

HOPE THE BEST AC GAME EVER !!!!!!!!!!!!!

Except in the context of this game until confirmation, neither you, him or me are right. The ideas are certainly there, but for all we know, the bow might just function like the crossbow in previous games.

I think it's a brilliant idea making him Native. Should be great. I'm thoroughly chuffed.

whats his name? o.O i bet its like ...''eagle'' or something native tribal like...

Edit: maybe his name might be eagle in a native tongue :p ...just need to find out what tribe he is going to logically be from. :D

His backstory sounds a little clich, half American half native?
Reminds me of Gun, and Red Dead Revolver.

Though I suppose when you think about it Altair and ezio's backstories weren't all that original.

But anyway, those pictures look cool, that's all I can really say at the moment.

I posted on another thread. He's got to be from either Algonquin or Iroquois tribes. Those were the major groups around New York / Montreal

I think the new robes are amazing, definitely one of my favorites.
I can't wait to see the dye options for them, apart from the Colonial Blue and British Red we see on the cover art

If he's Native American I'm sure some people are going to complain it's racist..

in reality the tribe he is from does not matter he is an assassin lol :p he is probably fighting his own war against george washington...and for the record george washington(if there is a multiplayer in there) should be a playable templar agent.

If his name is going to be a Native American word for "Eagle" it does matter what tribe he's from because there are hundreds of Native American tribes and they speak different languages and dialects.

the eagle in cherokee backround has stories talking about killing an eagle in the winter after the crops were harvested or something like that and the photos we saw show this snow crop land theme. aw'hl or we-hali is the name for eagle in the cherokee tongue

"The eagle must be killed only in the winter or late fall after the crops were gathered and the snakes had retired to their dens. If killed in the summertime a frost would come to destroy the corn, while the songs of the Eagle dance, when the feathers were brought home, would so anger the snakes that they would become doubly dangerous. Consequently the Eagle songs were never sung until after the snakes had gone to sleep for the winter.."

that is the quote story thing lol :D

I don't have any more info than you but if the game was following its pattern I don't see it just as some NA fighting george. Besides, Desmond isn't Native American is he?

The Native Americans in general were hired by both sides as mercenaries quite often. Although most of them did fight for the British.

I still don't think Desmond could be NA though because he said he worked at a bar, Native American reservations can't have bars/alcohol correct?

incorrect because here in miami the mikosukee indians have casinos(bars and alcohol yes) .....btw desmond comes from south dakota ;) he ran away and became a bar tender to have money to survive...and this IS the 18th century thats 300 years before the 21st century...we do not know if his great grandfather moved from place to place? now do we ..correct ;)

EDIT: indian reserves can do whatever they want since its not government owned....we learn one thing here, whenever when we go to 'there' territory that they can kill us and get away from OUR jurisdicial system lmao..our rules do not apply to them

Well first, he's not on a reservation. The bar was in New York. He grew up in an Assassin's compound in the Dakotas.
There's no reason Desmond couldn't have some Native American blood in him.
He's obviously pretty mixed ethnically already. Some Italian, some Middle Eastern. Why not a Native American somewhere in the gene pool?

True, but I'm thinking about him "growing up on "The Farm"" you know...like a reservation...that was just my impression.

I am not trying to offend you...sorry...but why am i right? because I know the story behind desmond as it has been revealed to us thus far ? lol :D and you are making things up according to how you think and I am telling you how things are in actuality.... sorry if i seem offensive.

that is exactly what I was thinking and I believe that they might take that path but i hope that he has a different combat and executions than the previous assassins..kind of like how in brotherhood multiplayer had different finishing moves for every different character. :D

Looking sick, But i Doubt he is gonna have a more awsome name than Ezio Auditore Da Firenze Or Altair Ibn La'Ahad. Can't beat the legends.
