Can you free roam after you beat the game? on a ship? Just answer Yes or No. No spoilers.

Apparently Naval free roam is not in the game. But there are plenty of naval side quests to do either during or after the story.

But I haven't played the game yet so I'm not the most reliable source

Someone said after you beat the game you have to walk around with a stupid looking mohawk. Could someone confirm or deny this.

Am I being whooshed? It makes more sense for him to have a mohawk as he is a member of the mohawk tribe.

Mohawk's are badass (for game characters lol), I can't want to see what it'll look like! Plus, I'd imagine he'll have his hood on still at the end of the game, no?

You shouldn't be forced to use something that 99% of people will absolutely hate anyway. I'm guessing you can switch hairstyles after the game at will, so you can probably go back to the normal one.

Plus, Mohawks are awesome.

Anywho, my main question is this: If I beat the game going only through the main story, will I be able to go back and play through ALL the side missions after I beat the game?

Why does everyone keep forgetting he is not 100% Mohawk. He is just as much British as he is Mohawk. Yea he was raised up with the Mohawk tribe but that doesn't make him less British.

Mohawks are awesome but for me that was kind of a big spoiler. Didn't want to know that. I did however used to wonder if they would eventually give connor a mohawk. When I first saw his hair, all I could think of was Jake Sully from Avatar. And of course he gets a bad a** mohawk before the end of the movie.

Tons of people complained about the same thing when Ezio grew his drunken pedophile beard in AC2 and we couldn't even go back to previous memories to get rid of it. There were some people who liked, but most didn't. A bearded Assassin just looked weird with the assassin cloak, but after ACB, everyone was used to it and most now people prefer and know ezio from his bearded 40's

I remember Ubisoft saying that after you finish the game and the epilougue missions, you choose which sequence to start off at in order to determine the weather. Correct me if this is not the case, since I do not have the game yet...
That in theory would make Connor appear as he did in the sequence you select, so if you select sequence 6, he'll look like normal Connor.

This is the most stupid addition Ubisoft has ever made in a game. No one likes the stupid looking 10 feet mohawk, which is just about the most ugly thing in existence. I speak for 100% of the entire Assassin's Creed community when I say that we ALL hate it. Not one person likes it. The fact that you are forced to have it, with your hood down all the time completely ruins the point of free roam after the game. They might as well remove free roam too, because that's the exact same thing.

Seriously, Connor won't even be an assassin after the game, he'll be some stupid idiotic looking mohawk with the hood down, which looks garbage and is something you're forced into.

Stupid idea, no ones like it. You better be able to glitch the hood back on...

kriegerdesgottes
10-28-2012, 05:35 PM
There are always some people who enjoy the stupid things but I agree that it really bums me out. I really don't want to have to wear Ezio's Brotherhood suit all the time. I was so excited to make Connor's coat tails red instead of blue but now I have to deal with that hideous mohawk.

bluetoes1
10-28-2012, 05:39 PM
The problem really is that they force you to have your hood down. If they allow you to have your hood down then it should be a CHOICE. It's a much bigger appearance change than the beard in AC2. That was only from the front - You still looked like an assassin, too. But Connor without a hood, and this stupid mohawk (which seems to be forced...) makes no sense at all. He doesn't even look like an assassin anymore. He looks like someone from a mohawk village, with nothing Assassin-like about him. Absolutely dumb idea.

Layytez
10-28-2012, 05:45 PM
Man if he doesn't grow his hair back or put that **** hood up Ubi should at least patch so if we can't have the hood up he has his hair back.

Agreed but I don't see that happening. We didn't even get music back in freeroam at the end of Revelations nor were we ever able to replay missions in ACII or remove armor without glitching the game for that matter in any of the following games.

He's still wearing his Assassin robes, but his hood is down at all times (or so it seems). This wouldn't be a problem, but at some point during the game he shaves his hair into a mohawk.

Gotcha. Honestly, that's not something that truly bothers me because... 1: Free roam would take place AFTER the events of everything, not necessarily needing to be an actual assassin, thus no real need for the hood apart from the cool aesthetic. 2: I imagine that if you replay the missions, his hood will most likely be back up, no?

I can understand the mohawk annoying people because it's a rather unusual hair style, but it works in his case because of his heritage (even if he is only half Native American.) I can appreciate the idea of this, and I'm kind of looking forward to seeing it.

It's true though. You buy an Assassin's Creed game to play as an ASSASSIN. Not to play as a man in tights with a stupid mohawk haircut. The hood is an extremely important part about being an Assassin, which is why it's the same darn thing as burning the costume and wearing something else.

Hopefully people are overlooking something and that it can be toggled on and off. Because it would be stupid if it was forced on you...

It's true though. You buy an Assassin's Creed game to play as an ASSASSIN. Not to play as a man in tights with a stupid mohawk haircut. The hood is an extremely important part about being an Assassin, which is why it's the same darn thing as burning the costume and wearing something else.

Hopefully people are overlooking something and that it can be toggled on and off. Because it would be stupid if it was forced on you...

I agree with you :P

It's similar to Red Dead Redemption.

You play as John through the whole game, getting to know everything about him, then R* kills him at the end of the game,and forces you to play as Jack. A lot of people were pissed off.

Holy **** dude! What if there are people here who haven't beaten that game yet? I have, but I'm just sayin'.

And here I was thinking everyone wanted the hood down for a change.

Yes, but as an option, not to be forced on us.

Completely agree. You shouldn't be forced into an option which doesn't even make any sense. It should be optional.

Hahaha, the game came out when? 2 years ago? I don't think it's much of a spoiler at this point haha.

When I first heard that Connor was getting a mohawk I flipped out thinking that the hairstyle itself is not... very historically accurate for a Mohawk to do (what we would now call the Mohawk hairstyle was more of a Pawnee thing) but I guess it's not that bad.

Closing thread. You people took this way off topic which forced it moved and spoiler tags added. Congratulations....
