Snake goes Assassin's

Snake goes Assassin's

Here at Gamersyde, saying we don't like April fool's jokes would be a dramatic understatement. Nevertheless, it would be even more foolish to skip this very nice (and weird) video of an imaginary cross-over between Metal Gear Solid 4 and Assassin's Creed, produced by Ubisoft and Konami themselves - especially knowing that besides the Altaïr joke, the video features real never seen before gameplay from Hideo Kojima's next game.

I updated the news: Altair is a joke, but the gameplay is a real new gameplay from MGS4 !

cant believe i posted this in the forums earlier then you guys.

does indeed look awesome tho. cant wait. MGS4 is gonna rule. i hope its an unlockable suit in the game. i realise the chances are slim and it would make no sense what-so-ever. but it'd be cool. the last scene looks to be in a very crusades like environment with a church or something in the background. either kojima's dev team has far too much extra time and modeled a little big of assassins creed like environment, or you visit such a place in MGS4. either way it looks cool.

I saw the Youtube one, really cool idea, and the footage is what makes it worthwhile.

I have been criticizing MGS4 for a while cause they dropped the ball on the graphics but damn that looked amazing!!

Kojima sure loves Ubisoft :-)

Day 1 purchase

Yep it's a bug, I'm on it.

Good to see two companies do something like this, but i still find the MGS world dull.

Still.....


well played to them!

There was a bug in the mp3 encoding system, it's now fixed.

That was really impressive...i really liked how the game went from a cut-scene to a gameplay so seamlessly . The action was frantic and brutal and it ran of so smoothly...geez...this video just restored my faith to MGS 4 ( gameplay wise, that is. ) Looks hella good.
Commented on 2008-04-01 21:38:20
I cared less about the Altair skin and more about what was going on in the game. MGS4 looks fucking wild. Just a few more months now...
Commented on 2008-04-01 21:56:00
This game doesnt look like its got any stealth anymore, looks more like a third person call of duty, I love'd all metal gears too, Im gonna still buy this tho
Commented on 2008-04-01 22:20:03
That was awesome. Maybe this is one of easter egg's of MGS4. But at the end of clip that was Assasin 2 ?
Commented on 2008-04-01 22:31:31
(cries) - The stream version is taking too long to load...

i think it might be from assassins creed 2. the background really doesnt look like something that would appear in an MGS game. also. it fits in with the assassins creed story too. that the present/past cant distinguish between each other and lines are blured (hence the reason altair (desmond) is still wearing the old assassins clothing despite a helicopter being in the sky. also. at the begining jade says i'd like to announce a brand new chapter in the *beeped out* assassin creed series *beeped out*

i think it might be you know. we'll find out soon enough i guess.

lol, that was a very cool idea. Actually I also lolled at the cows (well they sound like cows). New time I see a cow I'll propably run for the hills.

But then again...sometime ago in a MGS 4 trailer there was this short scene that took place in a church so i guess it's really part of the game. Also, it has been stated that the game features multiple locations all over the world.

Best thing I've seen today. That would be cool if the Altair outfit was an unlockable.

What's up?
  • Tiz
    Tiz @GriftGFX: I think MS were in full on panic mode because they wanted to add value to their box, so they showed everything. (4 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Yeah they just need to actually implement some of that stuff. They're charting an interesting path. I feel like they showed this game off before they knew what it was. (4 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz For instance, in Destiny, the whole point of getting loot is to get better equipped to do raids for better equipment to do raids for better equipment and sometimes Iron Banner. (4 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz @GriftGFX: It really depends how they approach it. If you can upgrade your ship, crew etc to navigate more dangerous parts of the sea then it will be a dangling carrot scenario. (4 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz Also, like the Division you have to cash in the loot before people steal it for themselves. The Division ran into the problem of just allowing anyone in the instances. (4 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX And like.. what's the purpose of the loot itself. (4 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz @GriftGFX: I feel like what the loot is will determine the way people play. Will there be the standard common to Legendary loot? Will some loot be harder to navigate to, if so, will it be worth it? (4 Hours ago)
