I think they could have 1 woman on the team. They usually do in 4 player co-op games.

Yeah and they HAVE a female assassin who seems to be a major character lol. I mean..4 men, fine. But 4 WHITE, BEARDED MALES WITH INTERCHANGEABLE OUTFITS is too much.

AGREED they should've had: 1 young confident guy ( Arnaud) 1 older guy , 1 black guy and 1 girl, would be better IMO

They look like recruits to me. Which is a shame because I was hoping recruiting would be gone. But as we all know Ubisoft loves to recycle it's mechanics.
tbh I liked the idea of recruits, I'm just hoping if it is recruits they act more like they did in ACR rather then AC3 maybe with some updated mechanics.

I wouldn't mind being able to order recruits to assassinate a guard or cause a distraction. But the tedious recruiting and levelling by sending on missions thing can go away.

Was the Three musketeers even a thing during that time? Unless ur talking about gameplay-wise. If so, I don't think so.

And locopels, now that Co-op is 99% confirmed, I do believe that PC co-op recruit thread is in order. Or are you going to wait until official confirmation tomorrow when the forum is flooded with threads? :rolleyes:

Guys, you should really stop hoping for Connor lol. Developers have said time and time again they dont see Connor in any other game, I dont know why everyone keeps bringing him up at every new hooded picture lol. If he gets a bonus, great....


If the DLC is exclusive to PS4 I will officially complain about Ubi's anti-consumer practices. At least bring it to PC, guys.

To be fair, all of the PS exclusive content so far was brought to PC, so I wouldnt worry! Oh and your sig is PURE GOLD. Probably the best signature I have seen here!

If Arno was in some sort of leadership position (not necessarily Mentor) and the other Assassins we're seeing were his recruits (meaning that the three bearded men Wolfmeister is decrying wouldn't necessarily be the only ones) only now, we can control them when they're on missions. Think of it this way; each game already releases a bunch of extra multiplayer maps not seen in the SP mode. What if you could send your Assassins to these locations for one-off missions like Ezio's recruits, potentially meaning they could be all across the globe? Alternatively, if you didn't want to play as them during that mission, you could send them off and the mission could be picked up by another player. It would be like Watch_Dogs' matchmaking in that respect. Simply send your recruit off and allow them to be matched up and assigned to another player who would in turn get money/XP/whatever for completing your contract, and when they finished, your recruit would return to you leveled up?

That is ALOT of mission design for something that's supposed to be a sidequest, unless Ubisoft found a way to make randomly-generated assassinations, it's rather unlikely. And sending this to other locations around the globe? Ubi can barely position us in one city without putting all sorts of hidden walls. I'd hope for that, but Ubi isn't one for taking such risks.

If the picture is any indication, I'm thinking each Assassin will have their own unique arsenal. Meaning one will carry a rifle, one will have a heavy weapon, etc. Also, I don't necessarily think it's co-op :) I posted a theory a few pages back but I guess it was easy to miss with this thread being as big as it is, lol.

In any case, I hope we aren't forced to carry anything on Arno's back. That outfit is so sophisticated and elegant, I'd hate to see it get ruined by a huge ugly rifle sticking up over his shoulder.

My point was that they already make a bunch of extra maps for MP anyway. This would be kind of the same thing, potentially even using the same maps that are used for MP. Also, it's not THAT much mission design if the mission is just "find target and kill him." And it would be more than a side quest; it would be the co-op mode people have been asking for if you sent more than one Assassin.

It's just not the pic though, Co-op has been rumoured for a while and I think it would make a lot of sense given how next-gen is perceived by the big companies (aka as a connected, always online, experience).

http://assassinscreed.wikia.com/wiki/Hidden_Blade#Da_Vinci

Da Vinci


"I ask if he can arm a crossbow bolt beneath my wrist. He ponders for a moment and declares it possible, but expensive."
―Francesco Vecellio asking Leonardo to create the Hidden Bolt.

Upon his arrival in Rome, Leonardo envisioned further improvements to the Hidden Blade, such as a poison dart launcher, which allowed the use of the Poison Blade from a distance.

Leonardo also designed and built the Hidden Bolt, a weapon that could fire small crossbow bolts, upon the request of Francesco Vecellio. As Francesco was only an apprentice at the time, Ezio had not allowed him to use the Hidden Gun, and so Francesco had devised a similar, though lighter, alternative.

Except Arno, the others don't seems to have a strong personnality.. Maybe the same multiplayer mode as Watch Dogs, you play always Arno, your friends play always Arno too but they see you as a random character and you see them as a random character (so no women).

well they all represent a playstyle. Heavy/axe, Sword, Guns/pistols, and stealth/poison.

I think their just trying to show that Arnaudicus Maximus is the Assassin mentor, and these are his apprentices.

Recruits from ACB and ACR would gain the ability to use those things.

Que? They get Ezio's white outfit when you fully upgrade them, with no color swaps available. I actually thought it looked cool since I always changed Ezio's robes to black, but I would have appreciated some options.

Their capes are still different a different color even after they get the master assassin robes. I didn't realize that until my last playthrough.

They don't get capes at all until they're initiated though...

If the 3 other assassins are actual plot-relevant characters and not random recruits, I can see people shipping the hell outta them.

The one thing that changes how I feel about an AC game when they first show it off is how it looks. Just in how the mechanics seem to work. Like how AC2 felt a lot different then AC1, and how AC3 felt different then the Ezio trilogy. Even AC4 felt pretty similar to AC3 even with the open-world naval. Naval felt like they added another game on top of Assassins Creed, instead of revamping the core of AC. I did appreciate the subtle changes like better guard placement, tagging enemies, ect.

He also looks wider in the first one. It's always weird how for characters like Edward and Ezio the concept art portrays them as more bulky than in game.

So these four assassins would meet Alexandre Dumas and he would inspire him the story of D'Artagnan (Arnaud) and the Three Musketeers? not bad.

Something like that!

Alexander Dumas wouldn't be born until 1802, and by then, the FR would have already ended with Napoleon in power...

Mm, either way, either one is fine to me. He does look slightly bulkier in the top one but it could be due to him having his arms straight by his side. If theres one thing AC renders have taught me is they never look like their in game models so we shall see what he looks like haha

Hopefully there's a mission where Arno sits at dinner with his target and whenever his cravat comes loose he gains suspicion.

pfft this is nothing if you have ever seen a Bioware trailer, the characters from the trailers look nothing like their in game versions.

Now whenever anyone mentions Dumas, all I can think about is this guy.

I can't believe I've read this whole thread. I haven't even finished AC1 yet.

"Hopefully there's a mission where Arno sits at dinner with his target and whenever his cravat comes loose he gains suspicion."
This made me laugh out loud!

And the crossbow will make it hard for him to "hide in plain sight" - haha.
He hides by sitting between 2 people on a bench. And in roof gardens! I laugh every time.

AC2's is the best IMO. The whole thing with Ezio showing off his two hidden blades makes sense for the banner to be that wide. With the other ones it looks like they didn't really need all that space and couldn't figure out what to put there, so they just threw in some extra characters. In Unity one of them even gets cut off on the side.

The most exciting addition to AC has been those double hidden blades. When I first saw them, and Ezio as a character with his awesome smirk, it was just glorious

Nay:

- ACB showing off multiplayer characters to promote new feature
- ACR shows off the fact we will control both Ezio and Alty
- AC3 shows the blood and thunder of the revolution - and the box art...
- AC4 is unnecessarily wide I'll give you that, but they haven't threw in any characters
- AC Unity's indicates Co-op

Ehh, I've always thought they were kind of unnecessary. Cool, sure, but I could live with just one. In ACB you can choose to go through the whole game without getting the second blade.

I did think it was funny how in the AC2 E3 gameplay reveal video you can hear the audience gasp and cheer the first time Ezio performs a double assassination. :D

I get that, but AC2's has the best composition IMO. Just Ezio with his blades. A cool character against a simple white background, showing off a new feature in an eye-catching way. With the others they don't look specifically designed for the banner width, making it so that on AC3's you can barely see Connor's face because he's been shrunken down so much due to the vertical pose. ACR's would work if Ezio's hookblade - one of the game's biggest additions - wasn't cut off at the bottom; another case of an unfortunate use of an existing image. His hookblade arm was pointing downwards in the original image and they didn't change his pose for the banner, so it's badly cropped. AC4's is just messy all around. ACB's is the second-best, but I hate that all the multiplayer characters are off to one side and the title is left. Would be better if you had Ezio in the middle, two MP characters on either side and the title in the middle.

Yeah they always set-up the double assassinations for us. Maybe they could make us work for them, you know? Like we have to manipulate two guards to come close to each other so we can take them down at the same time.
