Gets stabbed with a bayonet

I like that it is getting a review though. M, do you think this could meet Undead Nightmare standards? Do DLCs even normally get reviews?

Most DLCs do not get reviews...

To be honest, I do not think it`s up there with UN, but TOKW having a review sounds promising.....even the narrator`s words....it sounds promising...many things to do, epic travel around America,,,,It`s good that it`s having a review, though...something to rely on when it`s released...I`m heavily considering buying it now...just need assurance that i`ll get my money`s worth

I was one of the most skeptic people when it comes to ToKW... but after watching this video... I admit, it looks pretty sweet. Actually want to play it and check it out.

I feel the same way.. $30.00 is almost half of a brand new game. Everything I have seen so far looks nothing short of great. I have high hopes but don't want to be disappointed either. So I wait. If Haytham makes another appearance at the end. it's game over man. game over. TAKE MY MONEY!! Ha!

Mm that is what I was thinking, about it having a review meaning it must be good. The narrator sounded pretty pleased. Notice the map and how the treasure icons were diff? Maybe this will have cooler stuff and a new crafting system?

And yeah I forget I was supposed to tell you how good it was haha. I remember saying I would to you like ages ago. You will get my review after I finish it :P

You can't put an estimated gameplay time on a free-roaming sandbox game. It's as long as you make it. It's also difficult to put time to any game, some players will explore and go beyond, some players will just plow through the story and fast travel everywhere

and to the guy above me. You can now fast travel directly to a mission. Estimated game time should be all the missions added up, with like 20 minutes added for free roaming I think.

I just don't see how anyone can give a time on a free-roam game. There's different paths, different ways etc

If you go into the game expecting it to be 4 hours long, it's never going to impress you.

Then they shouldnt give any time frame then. Either they should do mission time, or no time. You pay for the missions, not to run around anyway.

But you don't pay for time. I agree they're stupid to give time, but their times will simple be the average playtime from their playtesters, who to be honest won't be AC fans. They'll be generic players. Some will smash through it, some will spend ages doing achievements and such.

so does connor know about everything that happened in ACIII? it kind of seems so.

also I hope theres some kind of explanation for Connors survival after all these shots and stabbing at close range and his invisibility cloak:confused:

I wonder whats the reason for this non reality story modern time wise...does it have something to do with Desmonds status?

is he experiencing these memories?the loading screen looks kind of like another black room? hm Im intrigued:D

It seems so, as he hugs his mother and she doesn't really see what the fuss is about.

I like that it takes place in the frontier and that Connor has some new abilities to play with. I don't mind a bit of magic as long as it is fun. Cloaking has worked well in many other games (Crysis, Deus Ex etc)-

The wolf showed up in the tool so yes. And of course they would be optional. The game never forces you to use anything unless its a tutorial or something.

I don't know why anyone wouldn't want to try out these cool powers. Seeing as this isn't even set in reality, I don't see how it infringes upon the "realism" AC offers.

Also, I hope it's a bit deeper than "oh, just a dream".

I have Season Pass so in that case, I am getting it God willing it works with no problems hehe xD

I think it looks pretty promising and I hope it won't turn out to be a dream but an alternate reality or a vision through the numbers that Juno and Minerva talked about. It's like another possibility in history that Abstergo is using through a device similar to Minerva's Eye device.

I don't know why everyone wants it to be dream, just a dream. I mean why not release another AC DLC as a dream when Connor dreamed that he's dating some girl and we play the preparations for the wedding, lol? I guess this needs to have a purpose not just added for the sake of it.

Minerva's eye device? Isn't that the thing Juno used to free herself? that doesn't create alternate realities.

EDIT: the eye actually was the device used to look to the future. ma bad

Juno did mention that they used some device to know the outcomes of the things they do and whether they make a difference or not. Maybe Abstergo made something similar and now they're seeing through the possibilities. After all, they built the animus which is pretty much similar to the Masyaf Keys which was the work of the First Civilization.

As far as I'm aware, people can't make first civ tech, only find it and utilise it. That piece of tech was used to project themselves into the future, i'm not sure what good it would be to go and alter the past.

It sounds like Ben Franklin's making an appearance. Good. I was disappointed that he was such a tiny character in the game, when it sounded like he was going to be pretty prominent before the release what with all the Almanac pages and inventions being promised.

Also, it sounds as if Haytham is dead in this expansion. Notice Connor says "I know who my father was..." Granted, he could just be referring to the fact that he left before Connor was born, but in the main game, he knew good and well that Haytham was still around even from the start.

what is this. Connors mother is alive and of cloak ability. AC is not metal gear solid. I don't get it anymore. AC3 sucks balls. I glad that next installment is whole new setting. Thou AC kind of is falling apart and is getting boring with those once in a year releases and with those pointless plot twists and weird abilities.

Sound like this alternate reality is going to play well into the actual story. Being able to see the possibilities, is endless. Makes sense Connors mom is alive. Maybe his dad is and actual had a change of heart but can't show his face because he's a marked man? I bought the season pass because I knew for my money's worth I'd be saving a dime Or a fifteen depending on gas ahahah.

Metal Gear Solid is not hard to understand. And to answer your first question, everyone knows it is a dream reality. Well, almost everyone. And LOL at AC3 sucks balls, that is kinda funny. Weird abilities are fun, because they are in a dream, the devs have more freedom, can throw random cool things in that dont need to make sense.

And it looks like my speculation may be correct, that perhaps this is all "this will happen if you don't take the Apple away from Washington" kind of a dea, and at the end that's what Raton will do in "real" timeline. I'm glad it's canon (even though it's only a dream apparently). Would hate totally alternate non-canon universe

That is the definition of non canon. It's an alternate scenario, an "what if". And Connor's mother is alive in this DLC, they appear together when Connor is an adult, which totally defies AC3's events.

Abstergo planning to launch the satellite is canon
Abstergo actually launching the satellite is not canon, because it never happened
The outcomes of that possible launch are not canon, because the launch never happened

If Ubisoft created a game about Abstergo actually launching that satellite, with we experiencing the outcome and the implications, that would be an alternate scenario, because in the real timeline, that never happened, just like this DLC.

More native interactions, awesome! I knew Ubi wouldn't leave out the potential with Connor having more interactions with his village, even if it's a DLC, at least it's canon. Looks like your petition worked RatonFan. :D

Also;
"The first episode starts with a 15-20 second video that's all garbled, but you can un-garble that if you collect all the memory artefacts." These artefacts are Animus glitch-style collectibles hidden around the game world. "It's actually a two-minute video - we just took images from it for the garbled montage."

Maybe that video might be a hint at a new Connor game or something about the modern day?
