Graphically there were 3 annoying things in the first AC: Framerate issues/tearing, low res to hig res mapping pop ups, and distance pedestrians shadows. Fix that and Im sold.

Cool new armour he's got there, I guess that's some kinda upgrade you can get.

That black outfit its badass I wonder if its n unlockable or preorder exclusive or what.

I really hope it is an unlockable if not I will be pissed and yell for about 63 minutes.

gorgeous concept art for the environments... and <--- haha so Bad Ass!

Ehm, why does Ezio have a beard now? He didn't before, unless they remodeled him a bit or its someone else. I like thought ;)

PS. Too bad the PC version got delayed to 2010.

new armor?

Interesting, you can now order others to take down bodyguards while you take down your main assignment? That's more than just providing crowd cover from AC1..

Game's looking very nice..

bullshots, or alien tech pc shots, take your pic.

Finally Ubisoft you are understanding, great trailer great choice of music (finally), hyped me :P
Ezio is truly awesome with hand to hand combat, really awesome.

That black outfit is great, that is suppose to be the Master Assassin outfit you get later on in the game.

Great mood to it

Arent the levels looking quite empty now though ??? Watch the trailer again and when he's on the rooftops. The ground looks very empty. Clearly, the game isnt the best looking around anymore either. Music is fantastic and the trailer does hype it all up but it aint working on me this time until I see a couple of trusted reviews, otherwise, will wait for its price to drop before I buy.

looks nice, but that new black Outfit is just gross... don't misunderstand me, it looks cool of course, but it wouldn't work at all in combat situations like the ones in this game, same as climbing etc. Since AC is a game which is set in a "semirealistic" environment (or almost realistic) I just cant understand this choice of fantasy design... Anyway, since its one of the rare medieval and more realistic games, and since I am a reenactor and swordfighter myself, this is a must buy for me (and for the swordcombat, most of it is described in the "thalhofer" books about longsword fighting, and they used that in the first game *lovely*)

Noticed same thing. Whole city looks much more emptier then in ac1.

I wouldn't see that guy coming a mile off.

Oh wait, I would, because he's bloody obviously an assassin.
Commented on 2009-09-25 19:26:15
That video looked awesome I liked it.

Still day one.

pc version got pushed back. :(
i can wait though, they said they want to do a proper port of the game and needed more time, it's not like i wouldn't be having anything to play till then.
BTW, that trailer was pretty awesome. looking very promising. ;)

Just like the first.. oh wait :)

The game doesn't seem too exciting though. For some reason, this new character has yet to catch my interest in the same way Altair did.

Agree. Altair was presented as an mythic figure, epic assasin and they did it very well. The character was oozing coolness. This Ezio is just meh. :/

Altair > far!

    droezelke @Sdarts: Heat is a barrier both for PC and consoles. We succeed in making things smaller, but it's the heat barrier that has to be overcome. (3 Hours ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke @Sdarts: there needs to be a breakthrough in transistors before a huge next step will be possible. The next consoles will not have the power of a gtx980ti simply because of heat problems. (3 Hours ago)

    Sdarts ThouThough only a few people would be able to run it, even among PC gamers, which is not viable financially. Hence why I'm thinking of the next generation of consoles. (4 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @alimokrane: Yes, but I meant that even now PC can do so much more. If an amateur can do that much with an injector in 7 days, you can bet DICE can do 10 times better with the source code, engine, etc (4 Hours ago)
  • alimokrane
    alimokrane @Sdarts: Of course you can do more with more powerful hardware. (4 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts But at the end of the day, that's not feasible. Consoles is where the vast majority of sales are, so first we need more powerful consoles, which in turn will drive PC titles' technologies forward. (4 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @droezelke: Crysis 3 will be a 3 years old game in February next year, and it's still one of the best - if not the best - looking games. I agree AAA companies could do much more with PC titles. (4 Hours ago)
