And I still haven’t seen Connor take out any Americans.. Just Redcoats.. Very disappointing.

Loving the new additions, fight with animals, we can pass through buildings and new environment, I didnt get the last Assassins creed because I didnt like Ezio that much and it was around him for the last 3 games but this one is looking great so far. Looking forward for more infos.

OMG OMG OMG! That was awesome. Just pre-ordered it off Amazon. Well played Ubisoft, well played.

Looks really good. Looks like a fusion between Red Dead Redemption & Assassins Creed XD

You could have just posted “You can assassinate bears!” and nothing else…..and you would have sold 10 million copies with just that alone.

I’m thinking ACIII may very well win GOTY this year. I know it’s easily my most anticipated so far.

I do have one question (not sure if I’ll get a reply though…), but will that “Gamestop exclusive” single player mission be available as DLC later on? I already preordered it at Futureshop and got my steel case….but I do really enjoy single player DLC (feels more worthwhile than spending 15 bucks on a multiplayer map…)

I still haven’t played AC2,Brotherhood or Revelations yet. I hope they come out with ah AC2 collection before AC3 comes out. Possibly all three games on one blu-ray disc. That would be sweet. :)

Can’t wait to see the game’s E3 Trailer and game release in October!
Now im just waiting for a release of a potential AC3 Collector’s edition :)

What if I never played Assassins Creed before? Can I jump in this one without having played the previous ones?

minus points if the response is “you don’t have to play them but you should”

This games looks awesome, the new engine really defines real next-gen graphics that is to be found on Optical Discs Consoles such as the PS3.
I know they’ll have a few extra features for the Touch Screen of the Wii U.
I was wondering if Ubisoft will do the same for PS3 and PS Vita? I know that Ultimate Marvel VS Capcom 3 is not only cross-play but will use the touch screen and use the Vita as an PS3 controller.
Is that something the AC3 team is looking into? (Using the Vita as an PS3 controller.)
And will there be some forms of cross platform of the Vita and the PS3 like AC2 had with the PSP?

All this would be good, but right now im upset at sony cause wtf is up with being closed 2 times this week on home, thats not cool, especially to those that have invested more than 300 dollars into home, SONY, GET YOUR HEADS OUT OF YOUR BEHINDS AND TREAT YOUR CLIENTS RIGHT.

CommandingTiger said:

@Neil
Yes, even if you never played the other ones before, it’s a new character with a new story line. So you won’t have any problems getting into the story. The only *small part* will be Desmond part of the story, who lives in the present. But don’t worry about that, I didn’t played AC1 and played into AC2 and I was able to follow the story.

Super hyped! I knew gamestop would be the only to get the bonus content. That’s why I pre-ordered from there when it was first announced. But great. I mean. Just one single mission. That’s great. I mean If I’m paying $60 for it… you might want to throw in a little bit more. But hopefully they’ll add more bonuses as time goes on. I mean that’s all the U.S. is getting anyways, right? I would instantly upgrade to the Freedom Edition if it were available. I mean Europe always gets 3 or 4 separate editions for the game. Seriously every time, 3 different editions. While we just get a tiny bit of downloadable content. I love this game so much but I have nothing to show for it really. I don’t want to buy a region locked game with region locked DLC. I want to show off, I bought the AC3 freedom edition because I love this game so much! I’m loving my steelbook case though. But, it’s okay. I have faith in you guys please look into it. If you can respond as to why we aren’t getting it then I’ll be satisfied with that. I like explanations.

Wow theres been a lot of interesting changes. I’m really excited about this game but theres one big question that North Americans have for you Ubisoft and I’m pretty sure someone already posted it already but will there be a collector’s edition for North America (and Canada)? We missed one awesome collector’s edition for Revelations.

One thing I don’t get is why are some people so offended by Connor only killing Red Coats (British people)? People are taking this game way too seriously. This new Assassin’s Creed’s time line revolves around the American Revolution and obviously the British were mainly the enemy of both settling and Native Americans during the time. And yes I know in the interview (and the game) the developers said Connor sides himself only with the Assassin, meaning settlers of the Americas (non native americans) could be templars as well. So I’m pretty sure he will be taking out American Templars. So some people should stop thinking that this game is racist. Its starting to feel like RE5 all over again.

Anyone else notice the pain sounds are the same one used in the game Happy Wheels?

WastelandDan said:

May 10th, 5:30 pm

@27 I’ll tell you why they bash the American perspective…because its the HIP thing to do right now.

Me? I’m personally super excited for the obvious patriotic bias, I mean com’on its the dag’on revolutionary war for petes sake! Just wait till the game progresses to modern times if you want a game with America as the big bad wolf!

Game stop, no thanks.

Better not play DLC favs to the xbox either…

looks nice ive always been a fan of assassin creed in the one after this what would be interesting is seeing a African american assassin

kage_no_kingu said:

May 10th, 9:00 pm

This game will definitely be on my “must by list” for this year!

AizawaYuuichi said:

@chrisgless: Make that a female african american, and I’m all in! We need a female assassin already, seriously.

@Neil: You SHOULD have to play them, but you don’t.
Seriously, if you have to ask that, don’t even bother. Either buy the game and play it and if you’re confused then get the earlier ones and play them, or get it and play it and be happy, confused or not. In a story-centric franchise, you should always play the earlier entries if you want to fully understand what’s going on (or read up on a Wiki). If you want to be able to play a game from a series that has a large number at the end of the title, stick to Final Fantasy, or most shooters. Those barely have stories to even worry about, let alone needing to know what happened in prior entries most of the time.

I’m not even going to bother watching the trailer. I know I want the game. I have it paid off already, pending a more expensive LE/CE announcement. I don’t want to spoil anything more at this point.

Pre-ordered it!!

I’d likely be interested in this if it wasn’t for the fact that my country was pieced together by the loyalists the assassin in the above trailer so gleefully massacres. I’ve played enough chest thumping American video games with the Call of Duty, Medal of Honour, and Battlefield series that I’m actually a little disappointed to see yet another franchise fall into that trap. Trap may be a misnomer given how well this stuff sells. Oh well.
