Interesting interview with Ashraf Ismail from gamespot in the E3 Stage Demo


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fgo5_W2DQQM

skip to 7:57 someone from the twitter questioning Ashraf Ismail about the customization for Edward...>> it seems that the armors would make back to the series:cool: ,he said that there is a tons of outfits (for those who likes the diversity of outfits) and customization for Edward also you can upgrade your weapons, health bar and armors < i think it's the first time in the series.

Armor has already been confirmed in earlier interviews. I wish they'd tell us if there's customization beyond armor, like different outfits or dyes. I really don't care about armor, I always avoid it, but I'm a sucker for new outfits.

"What are you so happy about?"
"Armor :D"
"What about it??"
"We have it now :D"
"It was useless"
"it`s from Assassins Creed II....anything from Assassins Creed II is god :D"

I couldn't care less whether armor is in the game or not. I just hope that there are plenty of AESTHETIC options to choose from as well. The armor in all past games has looked awful......well, maybe except for some of the armor in ac2, because it didn't make ezio look like a monster.

I honestly do like armor, just for the customization factor. No, you didn't NEED it (any AC game can easily be beaten without a single upgrade) but I personally thought it looked really sweet if you found the right combinations of dyes and armors. At least until Revelations, where every armor set except the very first one made him look like a bulky bastard. But put on the Wetlands Ebony dye with a full metal armor set in AC2 and try to tell me it doesn't look badass.

Armor is back???? Meh!!!!

Since I do not think that they will give us the option of full customization since "it breaks the game" I hope, at least, there are removing armor glitches like in ACB/ACR...

PD It would be fine it the armours have the elegant AC2 style, though.

F**K armor. the most ridiculous thing in AC. give us customization of edward regarding his clothes and weapons , it would be awesome.

but at least dont force us to wear armor again. a pirate with a armor = ridiculous...

He said armor upgrades which means it might just be an increase of Edward's health bar not necessarily anything close to this abomination

I actually like armor, in most cases.

The first two armor sets in ACR were fine, but then they got ridiculous with the last bought one and the Master Assassin armor.

Hopefully they're better in Black Flag. And I hope that the armor is just differing kinds of leather armor.

I think we will at least have some "Haytham" colors, red and blue, but I can't remember if it's for the outfit or the ship...

Nah man you're all wrong, AC1 was the best. I mean, it's so original and non repetitive. Especially getting all those flags, omg so much better then AC2's wide range of missions and extra side content.

I have mixed feelings about armor.
On one hand, it had this tendency during the Ezio trilogy to get more and more ridiculous which I hope doesn't carry on to AC4, and it just made the game even easier than it already was, nevermind always changing your armor to the most resistant during mission replays rather than letting you keep what you had.
On the other hand, if the difficulty is indeed toned up and upgrading armor has more of a purpose than just making the game a total joke, I would actually appreciate that. And if you can remove armor and keep something decent looking during replays, then it won't bother me as much.

Yeah I like it too, but don`t give me armor (that is SUPPOSEDLY useful) and tell me naaah you can finish the game without it :|....Customization?? absolutely. Useless?? suuuuure, how about outfits?? I wont whine when they`re useless...

Well, it was extremely original. What are you talking about? There wasn't an Assassins creed 0.5 was there? Prince of Persia had climbing, but nothing else that was brough to AC1, so don't even go there. Also, getting the flags was a lot less annoying than finding all those feathers.

and the reward is basically mom screwing Ezio..

"here Ezio, thank you for not forgetting me. this is a cape that will make you notorious everywhere and people want to kill you. thank you, my son"

Oh oh and side content..maaaaan AC II had some LEGIT side content...like beating husbands up?? that was so relevant..

I actually think finding the feathers was easier than finding 420 flags. (just realized there were 420 flags, that's funny. I wonder if this is supposed to be a reference to the rumors of Assassins smoking some hashish)

I mean, the feathers glowed in eagle vision. flags did not.

Okay, so armor's back. Cool, but it'd better be freakin' removable or hell will break loose.

I hated how you were always stuck with the armor on the entire time, after you purchased it.

I mean completely optional, not like in previous games where we were forced to buy at least one or two pieces and then unable to remove them.

Why not make it cosmetic only? Seeing how weapon and armor stats make virtually no difference in the game. Just have an option to customize your clothes.

To be completely honest, I really do not care if they make armor purely aesthetic or not; I won't even notice if it gives extra health or not. I played the entirety of ACR with Azap armor and never died, except maybe on something stupid like a leap of fail. I want armor back so we can customize our look beyond a set of complete outfits a la AC3. I often liked playing AC2 with a brownish dye and leather armor, or black dye with Missaglias armor; I didn't care about the stats, I just liked the way it looked. Yes, it should be completely removable, SixKeys, you're right. But I do want it back for aesthetic reasons.

I could meet the people who discovered those armour removing glitches, I would invite them some drinks!

I didn't really mind the AC2 greaves; the knee protection looked pretty nice. But I couldn't wait to change the pauldrons in ACB to Seusonhofer.

But I think Edward looks great with the armor he has on in all the promo pics. It just seems an excellent pairing this time.

I was superexcited to see Ezio without any armour in the first segment of ACR....in the vanilla version of his awesome outfit...sure enough, within the next 10 minutes I'm forced to don armour...ugly as hell armour

Armour has no business being in AC. Not when the Assassin is a 'Blade in the crowd'. I can understand why some people like it....therefore keep the armour...however let it be upto the user to decide if he/she wants to wear it.

Anyway, they just need to have an option to remove armor.

Since Black Flag is the first time they're using armor in the AnvilNext engine, I hope they have enough time to implement a function where you can just remove the armor you're wearing.

It's the same engine with a few modifications, if they can not be lazy and actually do it that would be good instead of giving BS reasons like last time.

EDIT: Forgot to mention, I doubt they'll actually do it considering they said "don't upgrade armour if you want challenge"

The one in my sig has two hidden blade bracers that look the same, this is not the case in ACB. Ezio is also wearing the final shoulder pad from the game.
