I like that they show it ain't all truth, justice, etc.

On a separate note, can you, or would you mind if I, put the trailer title in the thread title?

Wonder if the man with the golden skull is symbolic or if he is an antagonist of some sort?

The gameplay trailer's okay. It's not bad (I think bad AC trailers can be counted no more than on one hand), but it just screams 'obligatory Storming of Bastille day trailer that can't show a lot of new things at the moment'.

The Inside the Revolution trailer is cool, I like those historical pieces AC trailers do that inject a little bit of AC lore into them.

"... While his queen would have them eat cake."

This makes no sense whatsoever. Firstly, she did not say that, and it's from an older story, reused many times before the attribution to Marie Antoinette:

http://www.history.com/news/ask-history/did-marie-antoinette-really-say-let-them-eat-cake

Secondly, the way it's presented here doesn't fit with the meaning that was supposed to have made the phrase so illustrative of the royal house's callousness. They've instructed their narrator to recount this myth in a withering voice, but his script doesn't tie it up.

It might just be for that event seeing as there aren't supposed to be roof top guards.

At the same time, that's not a roof top, that's a balcony.

Btw, I noticed that Ubisoft likes to use a lot of similar imagery in their trailers :D

For example, the 'Assassin walking under an archway drawing his weapon during the sunset (or when sun is kinda going down or creates cool shadows under said archway)', like can be seen in this revolution trailer and, for example, AC4 premiere trailer.

I know that I've said it myself how in a game with lots of weapon customization (and stuff like enemy disarm and acquiring their weapons) this can be hard to implement (it would be an unproportionally big amount of work, bigger than it may seem at a first glance), but, damn, it's still kinda sad that we're getting a fully next gen AC and the only game where everybody's got scabbards (not just NPCs whose weapons can't be changed/switched) is AC1 :(

The one negative thing for me is the lack of facial expressions. Both for Arno and his enemies (example 0:37- and 1:06). Enemies look dead before Arno even engage them. I thought it was very cool in AC3 the way Connor's expression shifted in combat. Maybe it's just because it's early footage.

Anyway the most important thing to me is the city and it looks fantastic!

AC3, AC4 and our lovely AC1 had facial expressions. I hope they are still in. However I still think they are showing pre-alpha stuff. Especially this trailer which is 80% recycled E3 footage/locations

Well, if we talk new technology or stuff, AC1 trailers for the most part also didn't have facial experssions, but the game had them (which were then removed in the Ezio trilogy until AC3/AC4 came back around), so they might still get in there.

All new info about #ACUnity , WARNING MAYBE SPOILERS !!



- At the beginning of the game the Assassin Order will only be a temporary thing for Arno. At first.

- The players will be able to interact with each other in the co-op missions through microphones. However, the team made sure that the players who may not have a microphone will not be disadvantaged.

- The missions' difficulty varies between one and five stars. Some of the quests are designed for one or two people, while other ones are for three or four players. Players can try a four-man challenge solo, but obviously it will be more difficult. Along with this, a "two-man mission" performed by three players will be easier. The level of difficulty gives the player a tool to decide the kind of challenge that he wants.

- In the "Murder Mystery" missions the players may find themselves in front of a dead body, and then follow clues and interrogate different people and even accuse them, like a real detective. When a crime is solved, the player will gain the murder weapon and use it in the game.

- In the "Paris Stories" missions the player will find a wide variety of mandates, as Arno continues to be an assassin. However, not all mandates will be assassinations. Each mission will tell a unique story, which is why they were named Paris stories. This time the player will have to recognize the target. It will also be possible to obtain information and use it to trace it. From that point on, after getting to the target, the player will decide how to approach and kill the target.

- The city will be ruled by chaos and to really revive this vibrant and ever-bustling city, a variety of random events may occur between NPCs. For example, some people will try to rob a church. Each event is going to fit with the context of the French Revolution. These events will take place in the district which they are directly related to

- There are also going to be other huge rewards in Paris. There are hundreds of different stories hidden in the game, which offer an insight into the lives of the ordinary people in Paris. For example, if a player wanders into an abandoned house, he/she will find out that a family who lived there took the plague. If the player can find the members of te family, he/she will be rewarded.

- Unity is not only huge in size, but in terms of depth as well. Players can explore the city and can explore multiple levels (churches, catacombs, sewer system, attractions, etc) and go inside of a lot of the buildings as well. These places will not be empty, they will be packed with lots of activities, with stories, traders and Social Clubs.

- Unity will introduce three skill trees into the Assassin's Creed franchise. They are based on the three pillars of the franchise (stealth, combat or navigation) and are designed to let the player improve specific abilities (which can be both active and passive) tailored to his/her personal playstyle.

that sort of sounds bad to me. I love the feeling of being really excited for a game. Loved the lead up to AC3.

My hype levels were uber high for AC III, to a point in which I watched every trailer, marketing piece and demo available everytime I could:

This trailer alone made me pre order:


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BVUMPrv8oRw

While this gameplay:


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3AgcKKjxDME

Made me want be there, free roaming in Boston while that eerie soundtrack played in the background. I was craving to experience the whole 4 seasons as advertised in the likes of frozen lakes, for instance. I wanted to encounter those random battles up to 50 NPCS between regulars and continentals, finally the there will be random events ,and SO on....

In the end, even though I loved some elements of the game, ended up being disappointed: No frozen lakes, no four seasons, no random battles of decent size, no background music, and so on. The Frontier while gorgeous, felt empty, plus the mission design was AWFUL and some of the modern stuff felt unfinished and not worthy of the hype: cough, cough, DANIEL CROSS, cough, cough.

Whereas with AC IV I took a different approach: looking for it, but understanding that some of the stuff would be either cut or not as cool as advertised....The result???? I liked AC IV better, not only because I felt the game to be so, but due to the fact that the expectations created by Ubi or myself did not overshadow the final product.

I noticed the same thing. The character models look like they're from 3-4 years ago - ACB/ACR era. Cloth simulation looks good, but there isn't much detail in those NPCs. I guess that's because there's so many of them on screen.

I think AC 3 did a lot of things right. Although it wasn't the best AC game, I really enjoyed it and was hyped for that loads. Those graphics in AC 3 were astonishing. Is it just me but looking at that above AC 3 gameplay now, those graphics look almost as good as Unity (in terms of the city) The interior graphics in that co-op Unity demo though were absolutely phenomenal.

they never actually advertised all four seasons, they just advertised seasons.

I never really expected to have all four seasons as it wasn't advertised in any form. If they were going to have autumn, they would have had falling leaves and such. To be honest I think the "summer" period covered spring pretty well anyway, and there were some areas of the map that looked like they could be in autumn.

One thing that's bothering me about the in-game footage we've seen so far is the colour scheme. The interiors look vibrant and rich in tone, but the outdoor environment looks washed out and muted in comparison. It could do with being injected with a little more colour.

Huh, they did say it in that video. I was wrong about them not advertising it at all, but they never really focused on having all four seasons, especially since they never actually showed any seasons besides a snowy winter and.. a setting that's reminiscent of summer/spring in the videos or the screenshots. I will admit though, I remember that one of the videos did actually go flash through the same environment four times, which would give it the feeling of the game actually having all four seasons, when in reality it was like: Summer at dawn, summer in the daytime, summer at dusk, winter at night. So they did try and manipulate the marketing to make it appear like there were four seasons, but I completely forgot they did actually say it once in a trailer.

So I was wrong, sorry about that.

Anybody else notice that Arno said "weigh war" instead of "wage war" in the gameplay trailer?

Anyway, nothing new to see here. The gameplay trailer was basically just the E3 demo from different angles. The Revolution one was stylish, but not nearly as cool as the "ink" trailers for AC3 and AC4:

Yeah lets not forget that Edward went through like 3 face changes. In early demos and footage he looked like Alex Mercer. And Connor originally looked more like a generic white dude, especially in the box art.

Too bad Edward didn't stay like Alex Mercer.

While it's mostly recycled footage, at least the gameplay trailer's an actual trailer for the game, not like ACIII's ridiculous RISE trailer we got on 4th July that year...

Both were great trailers. About time to hear Arno saying something more, specifically his take on what is going on around him and what he must do. I did enjoy the second one more, since it gives some more insight on what the game will be about, being it Arno finding and fighting the driving forces behind the Reign of Terror in order to bring back peace. It appeals to a bigger ideal.

They had one song before radioactive which was moderately successful for an indie band. But I'm fairly certain the trailer propelled them to mainstream success after its broadcast. I remember Radioactive having only ~300,000 views on youtube, then after the trailer was televised all over Europe that figure shot up to 5 million.

It didn't get sufficient coverage to arouse widespread interest in the band. Unfortunately it was only played once at Ubisoft's E3 conference and stayed put on Youtube after that.

I guess im gonna hope that the french dub is better... at least it will give me more immersion...

And also the graphics might be good... but as a whole this is one of the dullest cities an assassins creed game has ever had... the colours are so dull...

Also it doesnt feel epic like I imagined a french revolution AC to be... this makes the french revolution seem boring...

It is still suffering from the things the older AC games did... some of the animations seem really shaky... especially that part when that guy is putting the head in the guilottine... the facial graphics are alright...

Not trying to sound offensive or anything but...superior stealth, combat and navigation don't appeal to you? I mean, they are finally improving from AC1.

This is the first game in the franchise that seems worthy of the name AC2 (since none of the other entries improved the core in a meaningful way). The other games were no more than AC1 with better graphics and more diverse missions or AC1 with naval and hunting, etc. In fact, most of them were inferior to AC1 in the sense that the simulator aspect was weaker.

The only thing that doesn’t appeal to me is that they made 5 games just to expand on AC1 (also at the expense of the formula) until they FINALLY decided to make AC2 (AC Unity).

Because the majority of it is E3 footage with cinematic angles? Seriously, there's only around 20-25 seconds of unseen gameplay and it didn't feel all that new to me.

Glad I wasn't the only one thinking this, it's like they drained all the colour and vibrancy out of the city. I get that they're going for a dreary, washed out look to capture the essence of the time period, and to accentuate the contrast between the affluent, lavish interiors of the nobles and the sombre, dismal world of the peasants, but the disparity is jarring.

Other than being a next gen only title there's nothing different between ACU and the previous titles that confirms that now they'll do what they should've done years ago.

And there was so much flickering on those graphics, especially interiors. They really grab my attention, I can see being distracted by that if it's present on the final release. It doesn't make me really excited, especially because I play on PC and Ubisoft have yet to fix all the mess they have made with Watch Dogs there.

Add to that, I agree with Wolfmeinster, the editing looks off somehow. Plus, the thing was very anti-climatic, and that voice acting was too cliché.

I suppose I was somewhat harsh there. You're right. I do respect Farlander and I didn't mean anything personally. And I apologize if I was a tad harsh in tone. I just get a little excited too easily. Sorry

And when you are multiple times claiming there was not Altaïr info for 4 years that kind of is spreading lies as I showed there were multiple Altaïr games in the time between plus cameos in the main game AC2. That kind of set me off a bit. I apologize. I just hate when I feel people are using lies or contrived sories to sell an argument.

And as for the character arcs I do understand what he was saying. In a nutshell that AC3 featured a full and complete story with character development. And thus requires no sequel. But the same can be said for any of the AC games or any series that features the same character in multiple parts.

Like I said just because AC2 ended didn't mean Ezio's story did or that there wasn't room for more character development. A story can end without ending the characters story. A Story arc and a character arc are two separate things.

Just because a story has a full arc doesn't mean there cannot be a sequel because anything that has ever had a sequel of multiple parts has had a full arc. You can't tell a story without one. You just can't. So it doesn't automatically make every sequel unneeded or irrelevant. Just as you can't call The Sorcerers Stone Harry Potter's full story. Or The Fellowship of the Ring the full story of Frodo. That's just absurd.

I was just trying to emphasize the absurdity of his claim. Thus the absurd and mocking/sarcastic/aggressive tone. To emphasize that absurdity.

I just don't see how you can rationally claim that just because there is a full story in one game, book, or movie(which is every book movie or game) that somehow a sequel or any additional character info is irrelevant or a stupid idea. That doesn't make any sense. It doesn't automatically close the door for anything.
Sometimes farlander forgets, we all can forget things and given how insignificant the handheld games are, it's not far off to think that he may have forgotten about them, that said...Farlander likes Connor...he wouldn't intentionally perpetuate lies to advance his argument against a Connor sequel, I don't think he even IS against a potential Connor sequel--he's just against the notion of saying that Connor's story is incomplete, that's what he's against, not the necessity or lack of it for a Connor sequel, just the notion of incomplete story...is there room for more? sure, there always is with the many historical events in that region that Connor can get involved in but is Connor's incomplete because it did not feature his death?? He doesn't think so and he explained why he thinks so and I agree with him on most points.

i'd have honestly understood if the tone you took was against someone saying "ugh, Connor iz zuch unpopular crakterzz" but come now....it's farlander, he's one of the nicest guys here but I do understand why you unleashed fury like that.


I wasn't trying to agree with anything harsh, just the main points.. I did notice some anger which may have come off wrong, but he does make some good points. Sorry for the confusion. :)
You should have pointed it more, that you agree with the points but not the tone but that's done now, moving on.

the only thing I'm certain they'll deliver is the setting, the rest are just empty promises until I see it with my own eyes in the final game.

It’s not that they weren’t capable, they just didn’t want to.
Assassin’s Creed started out as a unique and innovative concept. However, after AC1’s mixed reception, Ubisoft shifted the series’ direction. They could’ve easily improved both the core mechanics and the simulator concept given how underdeveloped they were. However, they took the easy path. You see, the only thing unique about AC, other than the whole Assassin simulator, was the historical open world concept. While the former was problematic (the core wasn’t exactly strong and the investigation and assassination missions needed to be improved a lot in order to avoid feeling repetitive and over-simplistic), the later had already been acclaimed by countless gamers and reviewers. So, instead of having to work on the whole Assassin simulator thing and achieve a strong unique experience, they could simply work on the historical appeal (bigger cities, tons of historical characters thrown at the screen that the player can befriend or battle, a bunch of historical events and stuff, etc.). As for the formula, they could easily replace the Assassin simulator with something close to Uncharted, or some action oriented popular game (Hence the recurrent question: Do you like Uncharted?).
This way, they could ensure the exclusivity of AC and sell it year after year by simply changing the game’s coat. But the core stayed the same or worse.
And they made a lot of money. However, that money came at the expense of the franchise’s name. They could have improved the core mechanics and work on the formula while keeping History in the background. By releasing titles with bigger gaps between them (2 or 3 years), they could make more money without compromising the franchise. Instead, they sold the franchise’s concept in order to get quick cash. They released the games yearly which meant they couldn’t waste time making the games better, only bigger in order to make each entry appear fresh and different (tons of new features but, deep down, the same mess). It’s not only a matter of the developing time. The sooner the games are released, the more different and fresh they need to feel in order to justify themselves. Improving the core makes the game feel better but not necessarily different. Changing and adding layers (side mechanics and such) make the game feel different and bigger but not necessarily better.

So, why do I think ACU will be different?
Before anything else, I don’t blindly believe it will be different; I will not pre-order or even buy it without analyzing the final product first.
That being said, I do think it will be better. Ubisoft are saying the right things (like what a real Assassin is supposed to be, that this is a stealth game at its heart, etc.). They are finally focusing heavily on the core.
Everything I have seen makes me feel more confident about this game. Like you, I do not trust Ubisoft (I too learn from my mistakes) but even they must realize that Assassin’s Creed won’t last long like this. They need to bring back the Assassin simulator concept and work on it because that is where AC’s strength and uniqueness lays. There are already a ton of casual games out there that surpass AC in most aspects. The only thing that still separates AC from the rest is the historical component but that won’t save them forever and I think they are starting to realize that. However, only time will tell.

Can I have next weeks lottery numbers while you have that crystal ball out please?

Unity 2 :p

Other than that I'm expecting great gameplay(Alex got more time on Unity than Revelations) and excellent story by the writher of Fallout: New Vegas.

LOL I can tell when I hit a nerve. What I said must have some truth to it. You guys never really respond unless somebody points out ubisoft's lack of support or points out screw ups.

There's no need for a crystal ball. Anybody who's been playing these games from the start and is used to ubisoft can see an obvious pattern. I simply just came to a likely conclusion from all of this. Like how I wasn't completely shocked at AC4 not continuing the story. All because of the added "black flag" right after the number. I also came to the conclusion that this would be a saga like AC2 had with ezio. Meaning that AC4 "black flag was just the first part of AC4. I can also conclude that AC unity will have a bunch of glitches just like the past games but even worse. All because ubisoft has just entered unfamiliar territory with the next gen systems. Which is also why I came to the conclusion that this was the main reason why ubisoft dropped a great addition to the AC series(multi-player). More than likely ubisoft will add multi-player as an add-on later on after they figure the system out. The multi-player servers were already unstable on systems that has had multiple AC games on it. Just what exactly do you expect us to think about the servers on systems they are just warming up to?


Unity 2 :p

Other than that I'm expecting great gameplay.

LOL nice one.

Or "comet".............

The game play is always good in AC games even with all the glitches(that they never seem to fix). Them dropping multi-player and introducing basically single player wolf pack mode makes no sense at all. The reason they gave wasn't any real reason at all too smh. If they would have just came out and said "we are warming up to the new systems and played it safe" there would be less backlash. Them adding multi-player to the series was a big step forward in replay value. Them taking it away especially with the launch of the next gen title in the series was a really bad move. LOL at every bodies high hopes for a "next gen" AC multi-player experience. Also lets think about the people who buy this game mainly for multi-player. Just for the hell of it lets throw in the many people who don't have a next gen system or a upgraded computer yet. I honestly don't feel like paying damn near $70.00 for a game that took a step back. People beat AC games within a month to 3 months max. After that, multi-player keeps the game going for a whole year or two. It also keeps us busy until a add-on is added. But from the way they're doing things as of late you can just throw the add-on out the window. LOL at them announcing add-on DLC at the launch of the game. That right there opens up a whole new can of worms so I'm just gonna leave that alone. I've typed too much already.

@ Mr_Shade

Yeah we like hearing about all the cool stuff and how "great" the game looked to you. But can you do something that y'all never do? Like tell us about all the cons that you "MAY HAVE OR MAY NOT HAVE SEEN" instead of all the pros that you "MAY HAVE OR MAY NOT HAVE SEEN"?:cool:

I'm pretty sure us loyal fans would love to hear about them too. I understand that you are playing it safe and being very P.C about things for your team(as you should). But I don't think it will hurt if you pointed out a few issues as well. It just might force ubisoft to actually take their time and do a better job at locating obvious bugs this time around. Keeping it 100 with the loyal fans who keep you in business shouldn't hurt at all. If anything it will create a better bond and truly unite the community.

Asking a Ubi employee to tell you about cons of a game for a company he works for is not gonna happen
