New Trailer: Ezio & Altair

Ezio & Altair

http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature...&v=-_sUpFKpZn8

Great trailer, so many cool moves and nice tiny teases for locations (the underground Templar city in Capadocia in particular). Also liked the almost-subliminal glimpse of Desmond at 1:50...looks like he needs a shave.

It's subject 16. It doesn't quite look like Desmond. There was an achievement in ACB that was like ..---..-.---... for solving all of subject 16's puzzles, that spells out 'I AM 'ALIVE

Nah, there's no way they did a three-way cutaway with Ezio, Altair and...Subject 16. It's Desmond, with the stubble he's grown while in a coma. He does look a little funny, I agree; maybe he's lost weight as well while comatose.

Yes, Subject 16 is alive...in code, as the achievement title suggests. The entity we encountered in Brotherhood is the sane mind of Subject 16, trapped in the memory files. When his mind could not get back out, he found a way to stay intact inside, leaving a mindless madman on the testing table.

I like what the trailer has to show, but the music, ugh, so out of place. Reminded me of some underground french movies about ghettos, not precisely what I want to think when it comes down to this saga.

Itīs good to see more of Altair as well, all the previous videos show too much Ezzio.

At least gameplay looks awesome so far, but I need for this one to have a shocking plot that ends Ezzio history, tied with Altairīs one and lead to Desmond out of coma knowing which direction he should take next (and there a hint for Assassinīs Creed 3, fucking finally).

I agree with the music, i got used to Jesper Kyd's authentic style and local instruments, this sounds like Ezio and Altair are at a rave.

I am still worried as to how much time we will spend playing as Altair, but it's good to see Altair fighting the crusaders again. Maybe it's just me but when the shots of Ezio and Altair performing the same action are shown it looks like the 2 are built around the same character model (Ezio is staring to dress more like Altair), making me think there will be some quality time with Altair.

You got that right. I really like Ezzio and the fact that heīs become old, but three games on mayor platforms and some portable ones is enough, seen Altair again and been able to play with him again (with all the new features on gameplay) sounds like fresh breeze.

Hopefully he will be at least 15% of the game, I wish for 25% or even 40%, but unlikely. Desmond, who knows...

I can't wait for this game! Hopefully we find out about the ending of AC:B. The title is "Revelations" so...that's what I'm expecting.

A lot of bomb strategy apparently. I hope this is optional and we still can go for stealth 100%, never really like to do this kind of strategies in the saga.

Also, Iīm confuse we see Altair in puberty it seems, rather than as Master Assassin of the Creed, Iīm confuse, I was hoping an approach to that part of Altair history. Donīt really want to be again under the orders of Al Mualim the hole time, I expect this is just one of many missions playables with Altair separated in times, so we can see Altair evolution, which I think is awesome and better written that Ezzioīs one.

Watching Altair go from young adult to Master Assassin would be an awesome to watch Altair's story unfold.

I would love to play as Altair like 100% of the time, but since I realize this isn't possible, I'm hoping for more of a 30% Altair / 70% Ezio ratio.

It does look bomb-heavy from this trailer, but I think they just wanted to show off the new feature; seemed like you could have gotten past the guards with the usual stealth and combat. Plus, one of your three pouches is for diversion, which opens up even more stealth.

I gotta think that this was an early scene in the Altair gameplay, and that we will play as him several times through to a point after the finale of the first game. The plot tie-in is that Ezio is searching for seals that Altair left behind, which he must have hidden after taking over the order. Surely the last memory or two will be post-AC1, covering some the events we read about in Altair's codex entries from AC2 (you can read those here).

I do hope you are absolute right about the bombs, been just a new feature and not so much a need. I love the stealth in this saga, just walk behind that guys and stab them was one of the things that got me on first game and donīt want to lose some in advantage of more tactical scripted parts. Need to be free to stealth as I want to.

And if youīre right about we playing Altair growing up and we get to see him as Master Assassin that will be just awesome. I always hate the games about Altairīs future were PSP exclusives and shit like that. Sadly, seems like Wii U will have an exclusive game again with both characters, I just hope the story on that one be included in Revelations

First off, an updated version of the gameplay trailer with narration from the developers. Mentions a few key details:
  • These scenes are from the quest for the first of five seals, which presumably open the first of five Altair-playable sequences. Altair is just a kid, pre-AC1, but I read this to mean that by the fifth seal we will play a post-AC1 master Altair.
  • Ezio is wounded in this portion of the game, and so more reliant on the bombs. This is probably their way of forcing you to try out the new feature; a healthy Ezio wouldn't need to rely on them.


Second:

I am really hoping that they will eventually release a compilation of the portable games, like God of War just did (see this link). I'm not a teenager playing on the school bus, so this portable shit is annoying to me too. But I'd still like to play these other parts of the story.

Still, I thought I read that Revelations was originally planned to be a portable side-story, and that Ubisoft decided it deserved the full-game treatment. So I'm not sure there will be a separate Wii U game. I see nothing current on the web about it.
