Wow, where did you find this?
I was a little dubious when the clip began playing, thinking someone had just overlaid AC3's HUD onto AC4, but that mission (as far as I remember) wasn't in the game. Correct me if I'm wrong, it's been quite a while since I've played AC4.

Thanks for sharing. Re-watched it a couple of times and it's alpha alright, the Havana cathedral popped up out of nowhere at one point, and the lighting and structure of the city seem a little different. I love how fast and fluid AC3's weapon wheel is here, it's how I always wanted it to be in the original game.

No thanks.

It's a Webm link, a relatively new video format used for streaming high quality video, it's used a lot nowadays. Convert it here if you're apprehensive http://video.online-convert.com/convert-to-mp4

Wow, ok this is just wierd. Seeing Edward with Connor's animations alone is really odd....

Oh and don't even get me started on everything else wierd about this.

Hah, nice find!

Wow, nice find. I never realized just how differently Connor and Edward move. Escort missions are generally a PITA though, glad this mission wasn't in the game. Maybe it was used to test AI behavior or something?

I wonder if Darby could tell us anything about this. Did he write something like this for the game originally or was this just a totally random test? What connection would this have had for the plot?

Character model seems different as well. Look at his face and hairstyle. Though it's a little hard to see in this vid.
