View Full Version : How young do you think Edward will be when we start playing?

So, we definitely know he ages because several screenshots show him with and without a beard.
What age do you think he'll be when we start playing? I'm guessing 19 or 21.

ehh... I would say 25 I think we start his life a little bit older. Then again who knows! It's a MYSTERY! :D

Probably as a child when he was poor to hammer his greedy personality into the player's heads. Though I'd prefer he'd start as an Adult. Tired of the whole Life-Story plot they've been doing.

I was also thinking about this. Of course there is no real evidence yet released on this but i think it would be cool to start off with him serving as maybe a young (18) lieutenant on a ship in his majestys navy. and then we see how he is turned off by that life and goes into privateering and then eventually pirating.

Woah there, not so fast. Ubisoft already stated a hundred times that we will play as a privateer(and a pirate) from the get go, cause they want a faster pace. No need to drag innocent people.

Innocence is all up to perspective, I say throw them in the grinder!

I'd guess that we are going to get an uncharted 3 start as a young little thief stealing fruits and chastity belts ;D

Hey now... the pacing was done really well with UC3. I just hate how they left things unanswered, like what is Drakes real name!?

First off, who is JB?

Second. That invalidates my thought of child. That begs the question. Will the game be Sequences and play like Open-World fare? Or would it be Blocks and the entire game is one whole mission like AC1?

Well that's part of the mystery. Same reason why the Prince of Persia doesn't have a name (except for the movie), and why Doctor Who is Doctor Who.

I'm pretty sure I read somewhere, he'd be in his early 20's.

He will be terrible and annoying at every age. So I wont buy this game anyway.

How the hell did Talbot just disappear after stealing Cutter's journal?
How in blazes did Talbot simply walk off being shot in the chest by Cutter?
Honestly, Talbot is the biggest mystery of the game!

Anyway, on-topic:
OP mentioned screenshots of Edward with a beard? Where?

^^^that last picture makes me hopeful that a hood toggle will finally be present. We all go our hopes up for AC3 until we realized that all those screenshots with the hood down where on the massive homestead. Unless we get an entire island to ourselves, i hope we go from looking like a privateer to assassin just by a hood toggle

I like the fact that, at least for now, it seems Edward will not have any early ties with both orders! The opposite from the previous assassins..

You won't buy a game because a character you never seen has a bad personality?

STILL HOPING FOR AN EPIC TROLL UP THERE WITH THE MGS2 RAIDEN REVEAL

where it turns out that Edward and traditional AC gameplay plus all the naval stuff is only in the game for a max of thirty minutes and the rest of the game is YOU at Abstergo doing stuff in first person like filing cabinets and buying donuts for the staff meetings.

That would make it GOTY in my books. Assassin's Creed IV: Abstergo *** Kissing

Yeah, 22. I think it was in one of the gameinformer dev videos.
