He puts his hood on when he enters the jungle. Not really sure if you can toggle it on or off in the cities yet. And also and new crouching mechanic! I like it. What do you guys think?

I think the hood thing is automatic when he leaves the pirate camp. But yeah, crouching is good. Assuming that's not just an automatic animation in stealth scenes, like in Uncharted.

I think the hood is contextual so in certain places he'll just take it off, hopefully he doesn't shave half his hair off so it's a good thing to have it off.

I hope the hood is a toggle and not contextual. kind of takes away from player freedom and roleplaying for those who do that.

Am I the only one who thinks Ed Kenway looks like Shrek's Prince Charming? lol

Not to mention if it's contextual and you're wearing an alternate outfit with no hood, he'll try to take off a hood that isn't there :p

To me it looked like crouching would last a bit after leaving a stalking zone. I'm leaning on the side of it being not being toggled. Still contextual, but maybe letting Edward lay low after leaving a stalking zone will help in many situations. As for the hood, I don't see the purpose of dedicating a button to a likely cosmetic action so I don't think this will be toggled neither.

R3 has been useless for ages. Might as well give the fans something they're asking for and use it for something.

Let's hope that R3 is used for crouching before anything else.

Crouching could be circle, it's virtually useless outside combat and it's handier than R3 for dynamic, moving gameplay.

On Off hood was probably just shown because of the demo, remember demos arent final representations at all. Crouching however is a possibility as there is now a running crouch.
