It seems like there won't be a ton of buildings, is it just me or...?

There will be some chuch towers and stuff, but none of the viewpoints will be as tall as they were in AC1/2/Brotherhood/Revelations. Picking colonial America as the setting was a mistake.

It's just you.

For some reason people leap to the assumption that it was all barns and log cabins, perhaps because TV shows with low budgets couldn't show you a good reconstruction of the locations in that era.

Google for Boston maps in the 1700s, or indeed art of the streets:

^He's on part of it. I think there is a bit of misconception of America's cities of the past but honestly, I still have my doubts...(as far as setting and architecture)

I'm still not convinced by these pictures. The cities look very plain and empty and none of the buildings are very tall.

Safe to say, nothing interesting. None of the grand religious buildings we've seen in the previous games. My guess, the best we can expect a leap of faith from a cliff into a ravine of some sort.

Yep, AC games got me really loving the old architecture of these European cities. We may have had building to climb or whatever but our stuff has always been more simple, not fancy or elegant.

I thin you're overestimating the height of buildings you've climbed until now. AC1 was mostly very low, and across the series buildings over three storeys are relatively unusual.

Besides, I don't think it needs to be about climbing the tallest thing you possibly can. Some height is good, and I've always liked the testicle-jarring effect of climbing and leaping from tall buildings, but they don't have to be insanely tall. You almost lose the ball-fear above a certain height anyway.

This game might also involve Desmond more as well. He could potentially have some cool climbing bits and bobs. Also, I think this new game could be a real chance to start doing some different stuff - break free from the repetition. We could climb in the cities. Maybe be a little sneakier. Maybe we'll be climbing mountains and trees with a well placed arrow grappling hook. I don't know of course but I think this kind of frees the team to do more.

Climbing trees would be pretty sweet. The pictures are starting to make me like the setting more, but I would still prefer France or England. Nothing is confirmed until Monday though.

After leaping for 4 games, i don't think we need to still emphatize that so much... yes, some atalayas should be ok but not more then that... i'm tired of so much climbing... i wanna a labyrint maybe :o

I CAN'T BE THE ONLY ONE WHOSE MEATS TANGLE WHEN CLiMBING TALL BUILDINGS

I MIGHT BE THE ONLY ONE STUPID ENOUGH TO ADMIT IT ON THE INTERNET, AND I ACCEPT THAT

I agree about AC1 (though the cathedral in Acre is still my favorite viewpoint in all the games), but that was four games ago when even the concept of AC-style freerunning was new. After the magnificent structures of Italy and Constantinople climbing a teeny little church again would be a step backwards. The buildings pictured in this thread are most comparable to the ones found in Forli in AC2 and those weren't very exciting or memorable.

Even setting aside the viewpoints, America simply wasn't as densely populated at the time. If anything, I was hoping they would go for a more metropolitan city next, with larger crowds of people that would create real obstacles and force you to be more stealthy. Part of what makes the freerunning so appealing is that it allows you more freedom to move and ignore the masses below. If the buildings in this game will be as boring as the pictures indicate, then freerunning will lose some of its meaning. The logical step, therefore, would be to make the streets more interesting. But if there are hardly any people around, what's left?

We haven't seen truly dense cities anywhere yet, partly because of the way the characters move under current restrictions. You can see the way they occupy a square on the ground and how everyone keeps their little zone around them. So I don't know if these cities are really going to stand out as under-populated. Boston around that period would be about 40,000-ish people, New York roughly 110,000. We've been in more densely populated places before, but the game didn't really show that.

I think the game would also become boring if we only ever played in cities which fit the bill for parkour and steeplejacking. It'll be the same game. Every so often we should go somewhere that seems less than ideal, because the tactics will be different. What if we climb trees in the countryside this time? There are other possibilities of brand new climbing situations, and being forced to the ground more often to sneak across especially wide streets might be really good.

I dont hope that was stated on the game informer website about building the game from the ground up means they got rid of the climbing and freerunning:(.
I'm very exited for this new game but i still feel kinda sad that we won't get the chance to make a leap of faith from this beauty...
Now that's architecture!

Agreed, or Cathedral Beauvais

And of course Germany for St. Nikolai, Ulminster, St. Mary's Church, Cologne Cathedral... I'm sure we'll be coming back to these places with next gen consoles and a higher polygon budget :)

They built from the ground up to make the game a BRAND NEW EXPERIENCE. This game I am expecting to be drastically different from AC1 and AC2! They would NEVER get rid of climbing and free running I think; that is just dumb!

Not me, i'm addicted to the freerunning and climbing mechanisms. I think like in all AC games there will be some underground tombs to explore. They could make this awesome for addicted climbers and freerunners like me:rolleyes: I hope without the camera spoiling the route you have to climb, that was REALLY ****ed in ACR. I want to find out myself.
