Has there been any news on if they will be in? And what are your general thoughts on them?

Don't care one way or another. They were actually pretty lame in Brotherhood and Revelations IMO. And they allowed for possibly the goofiest scene in the entire franchise- the carriage chase with Ahmed.

I loved them.

I was never really a fan of them either. I was just curious about that and zip lines. Are those returning?

No it was already ridiculous enough that they were purchasable at stores in the last couple games considering the parachute was not officially invented and marketed until the 1790's in France. Yes I realize Leonardo drew plans for one and they worked even but they sure wouldn't have been in stores especially in Constantinople. That crossed the historical line. No more!

..I always assumed that Ezio just gave them the blueprints and that they designed them..

That or Ezio only actually used one parachute and he just kept getting it repaired.

This would have been much better and it would have made a lot more sense.

There was a zip line in the Connor's Story trailer, but I'm pretty sure it was exclusively for that scripted sequence. Boston and New York don't have the kind of elevation that would make zip lines effective or practical.

Yeah that's why I was wondering about the zip lines.

10-16-2012, 04:23 AM
Were pointless. I doubt it will be there.
I think it was one of those signature Ezio things, a gadget first made by Da Vinci

But I would hate to see it in this game.

It was an awful gadget.

They were actually very helpful and it was awesome :)

I only used them in ACB because I just got them. I didn't use them at all in ACR

I wouldn't be so dismissive of the parachutes if I were you guys.

Maybe it's just me, but I usually used them... actually, I used them quite a lot. I usually used them when jumping off of high buildings on accident - or on accident.

I think the ziplines are still coming back, though on a lesser extent. I think Connor can use them via his tomahawk.

Parachute's there to help me get around whenever I felt lazy.

I hope not, falling is like one of the only things left in AC where we can actually die.

10-16-2012, 07:50 AM
I doubt they are back but I enjoyed them. They should be infiite IMO not having one at ahnd whenever I wanted made me sorta never use them.

They're not. They said they stripped Connor back to basics, being a new character, then added his unique stuff.

10-16-2012, 01:23 PM
I didnt used them and we wont have em in AC3.

10-16-2012, 03:13 PM
I think there will be ziplines in some missions, but not in the cities.

10-16-2012, 06:26 PM
You don't need them in this game, buildings are generally smaller in New York and Boston.

10-16-2012, 06:41 PM
I think that because there was parachutes in AC Revalations, there might be some in AC3. I don't think that they would only have parachutes in one of the AC games.

10-16-2012, 06:47 PM
i think that because there was paraachutes in AC Revalations, that there will be parachutes in AC3.

10-16-2012, 06:48 PM
i think there will be, i dont think that parachutes woild only be in revalations

They said that they wouldn't be adding anything just because it was in other games though. I haven't seen anything about them and they seem like they would be somewhat out of place.

10-16-2012, 07:51 PM
Yea, I don't think that Connor will use parachutes.
