I have been wondering this for a while now. We will be playing a lot as Desmond and I don't see us being confined to the Animus. Think about it like this...


Animus ------ Room 1 -------- Room 2 -------- Room 3 ------------- Room 4 ------------- Etc.

Say we moved like that, but between each room (or section/area) we had to return back to the animus. This would be time consuming and boring running back and forth. We know that Abstergo has made the Animus available for all, some kind of pocket animus. This "pocket animus" was mentioned in previous games and is more practical to use on the move.

We know that the Animus is called the Animus 3.01 (yes, not 3.0), but could this be for Rebecca's "Baby" or for the new portable one? Both of these could be entirely possible, as William Miles could have bought the software for Baby, or the portable animus with him at the end of AC:B.

How do you think the Desmond partitions will work, and how do you think the animus will work?

The Animus the Abstergo's releasing for public seems to be console-sized, like first PS3 or Xbox 360. Not really 'portable' :p But Rebecca's Animus 3.0 may very well be portable :)

Maybe we will use two different versions, both stationary and portable.

well maybe desmond could carry a transmitter/reciever with him that connects him back to the animus

Or he masters the bleeding effect and doesn't need a animus at some point.

What about TWCB memory discs?

This makes sense, him being "the choisen one" on top of all his experience with the animus. And he did encounter the bleeding effect before (in ac2) and he came out of that pretty alright.

we might see something like those arm mounted animus we've seen concept art of.

Maybe they'll avoid the bleeding effect instead of explaining it for new players x]

They were just there because Ezio couldn't get to a animus. Anyways I'm not sure connor was recording his life ontho them.

I thought the mem discs were more of a plot device for Ezio to relive Altair. Still though, guess there isn't anything that says they can't be used again.

Maybe at some points he could master the bleeding effect, but we DO use an Animus in the game.

Unlikely, since we still have things like a HUD, things which are created by the animus. As we see in AC2 during the dream sequence with altair, no HUD, hints, markers or anything.

I also don't see how they could have a fully portable animus, you all saw in Abstergo all the equipment needed to run an animus, and that wasn't long before AC3, why would abstergo be using inferior equipment within their own facility?
Then again, the animus seems to be able to function fairly well in the van during ACB, and the animus is constantly working during ACR during the journey from Italy to America.

It is likely that the animus we use will be more mobile that previous ones though, as i expect there will be more diverse Desmond Gameplay in the middle of the game, and that may require the team to be able to quickly move their equipment.

Forgot about that :p There might still be a part where he has those experiences but you're %100 right, its doubt it will be how they handle it.

Speaking about Altair vision in AC2, how many times Desmond had "virtual sex" through hes ancestors memories? 4 times?
