to begin with, I want to say I always loved AC games - I work in graphic design and the beauty of this whole universe, especially all the detailed recreation of costumes, weapons, artchitecture just enchanted me. this time, waiting for the AC4 I am even more taken - the pirates theme is totally for me - I used to play monkey island when I was 12 or something. don't laugh, just think how things changed since this game or leisure larry or even doom.

I have to say, I like edward kenway best. he seems an original bad boy. down to earth attitude. a little bit roughness. it is all showing in his appearance, his clothing, the way he moves and talks. I kind of fell for him ;)

of course, I must complain a little - the cinematic trailers show him best - he is much more muscular and real - than the actual gamedemos. it is inevitable? are the cinematic trailers based on the real person motion capture, and the game works on the more simplified model?

who did the motion capture for edward, tell me please? I must find this person and drag him brutally to my bed :D

:D:D:D guys, taking into account monkey island, you should be able to guess I am much too old for you, crazy teenagers!

edward mocap at the other hand, with his face structure, and I am good at this thanks to my job, seems about 30 years old, which is just fine for me :P

anything? any leaks, any gossips? I am disappointed. with his broken-in-the-past nose and wide neck he is probably an ex-athlete. did the announcement of desmond mocap by nolan north follow the game opening or was it commonly known during the promotion?

*heartbroken* I wanted that bed so bad...

Alright, seriously...CGI is probably not based on anyone and it MAY not necessarily be mo-capped and even if it was, the one mo capping may be NOTHING like Edward...nice inductions, though..

assassin_m, when I look at the cinematic trailer and then I watch a game demo, it is obvious for me, the first footage is more realistic with respect to the edward's face and movements. I cannot believe this would be possible without mocap...

also the discrepancies between these two "looks" confirm it - for example, the cinematic edward is shorter and more broad in the neck than the CGI. if there was nobody to be mocapped, there would be no such differences, all the trailers would show a higher edward, as it is usualy more appreciated for a hero to be huge ;)

silvermercy, hey girl! :) what do you think? there MUST be someone, seriously... we can ally know, later we can fight in the mud or jelly :P

Guys, it's time, I think, to reveal my true identity, I work as a model half-time to pay for my pickles. I know it's sad,which is why I'll PM you my bank account to donate if you want. Yes I am a sex symbol manifested in Edward, yes I would like to accept your offer and yes you can donate money to me.

You know mo cap doesnt mean they look like the person. EG

Nolan North
Nathan Drake - Uncharted

Troy Baker
Delsin Rowe - inFamous Second Son
Joel - The Last of Us
The Joker - Batman Origins

pacmanate, I totally see the resemblance - nolan north as desmond (in newer games) and troy baker as delsin rowe - of course it is not a 1:1 projection, but I can really see this.

Well thats impossible because Desmond is modelled after this guy

As for Troy and Delsin, yes, probably. But Troy as Joel? No. Troy as the Joker? Definitely no. Troy as Booker from Bioshock? Nope

the first desmond yes! in AC1. but he changed so much later. they kept him changing over the time actually, it is strange - but I can really see a lot of nolan north in his later face:

Actually AC3's is the best rendition of Francisco...http://media.pcgamer.com/files/2013/03/Assassins-Creed-Desmond-Miles.jpg

IMO, AC1 is the best projection of francisco randez.

you know, I can live with some discrepancies :D I want to find edward's mocap anyway! :P

I don't care if they put that guy's head on the Roman God of sex, his face will always be associated with the mediocrity that is Deadmond.

The Mo-cap people.... the unsung heroes of the AC team. Forever nameless... except maybe in the credits.

Have you tried contacting Digic? http://www.digicpictures.com/works/game-cinematics/assassins-creed-iv-black-flag-/
I'd be interested to know if it was the same stuntmen for all cinematic trailers since the first game. :)

yes, I heard so. not sure if it is true. it might be.

I cannot see any resemblance, so I believe the mocap was based on someone else.

anyone here is a rugby fan? ex rugby player, this is my pick ;)
