When I just went on it it said what Deviant just said. How can there be 2 descriptions?!


Edit. If you click on the picture, it says FOR haytham. If you click pre order and go the the description it says something else and spells haytham wrong.

I can't find where it says that.

And anyway if I had to guess I'd say it's just a Haytham skin. No need to jump to conclusions here.

Well it looks like Haytham will be wearing a new outfit! And it's for the BF game, sooo.... it looks like Haytham will be in BF. According to this at least.

To have a new outfit colour for him you'd think we'll be playing a significant portion of the game with him? I think this might be poorly chosen words by whoever wrote that. BURN HIM. ALIVE.

Judging from the typos I'm guessing it's supposed to be an advertisement for an alternate Haytham skin written by someone who doesn't speak English very well.

Who knows though? The game could skip to Haytham for a proportion of the game for whatever reason.

LOL They should give him his own game already!!

But it'll probably be younger Haytham. (Or baby Haytham dirtying his diapers. Maybe that's the reason for the extra outfit. xD)

Seems that Haytham unique outfit colour just means the colour of Haytham's robes in AC3.

It wouldn't matter since they can just jump to when he's an adult and then back to Edawrd since the animus has no restrictions now.

This couldn't possibly be true, I mean, do you guys really believe that they would announce Haytham as another protagonist in the upcoming game with " A Unique Outfit Color for Haytham"? lol

It would be the most terrible announcement of all time!!

The color kinda just makes him look like Ezio in ACR. Anyway, that's one heck of a typo.

Well... considering the fact that they are covering the life of Edward for a 10 year span starting from 1715 and 1725 being the birth of Haytham, it could possibly be plausible for the game to do some kind of time skip to play as Haytham in some other aspect.

It might be too much for one game though.

Yeah, I was thinking of a time jump, akin to Altair's stuff in ACR.

At what point has anybody from Ubisoft said we'll be playing over a ten year period? Just because Haytham's was born in 1725 does not mean we'll be playing up to that point in his life, only that we cannot play beyond it. It's entirely possible the game takes place over the span of just a few years (say, 1715-1718), which would allow for certain black-bearded characters to live until the very last Sequences, or beyond.

I swear I've heard in an interview that the game starts in 1715 and spans roughly a decade. I don't have a link, but I'm 100% sure on this.

Anyway, OT... advertising this as anything Haytham-related is just plain dishonest. It's an Assassin robe; it has nothing to do with him. What, has Haytham claimed "blue" as his signature color? Is the American flag Red, White, and Haytham-Colored? Does BB King play the Haythams? When you get a bruise, do you call it "black and Haytham?"

Unless there's some kind of TOKW-style mindf*** in Black Flag where Haytham appears as an Assassin, and you can get an extra robe color for him by ordering this. In which case ignore my Internet nerd ragefest.

I swear, have none of you played an AC game? They jump all over the flippin' place. AC3 covers about three decades, or three centuries if you count the modern storyline.

Both Haytham and Connor could very well have a role to play in AC4.

I thought that the book covered the life of Haytham from his 10 years to his death... Am I wrong ? I didn't read it.
AC Black Flag is "all about pirates", as they say. That would not have any sense to have Haytham as a playable character while he was not a sailor. It would mean that we would have a half of the game where we could explore seas and lands with Edward, and in the other half, we would be "restricted" to explore lands with haytham...
No, I don't believe it.

Yes you are right! Forsaken does cover the life of Haytham from about 10 (if not a little younger maybe 8 or 9) years old to his death. (with multiple time skips in between) Now while Haytham might not have been a pirate it might be okay to assume that he does know his way around the ship. That can obviously been seen in the game at least twice. The book never goes into depth about how he travels across the world looking for his sister Jenny but once again it would be either by ship or horse. Actually come to think of it he mentions taking a ship once or twice even then.

Plus It would have to jump storylines completely especially for those who haven't read Forsaken --They would have no clue what was going on. Therefore loosing the cohesiveness of the game.

Now like I said before this would probably be too much for one game. Considering that it is suppose to be a "Pirate" game. I could see Haytham getting a side story in a PSVita spin off vs. having a full game dedicated console to a Templar when the game is actually about assassins.

Dosen't need to be only about Assassins, is their creed but anyways..

New outfit for Haytham's probably the one with parrot feathers on it :P will give him a new colour.

Let's just hope Edward dies right at the start of the game and we're gonna play Haytham. And all this Edward marketing is just to fool us. Similar to MGS2.

It's just a dye that color's Edwards robes the same color as Haytham's were in AC3. Incredibly lame.
