Enoyable trailer, nice manuever abilities something i like.
Lets hope its fun, bugs to minimum and not a chore...since well, its Ubisoft.

Fucking terrible trailer. It's like the big publishers are scared to show any hacking stuff. "Yeah there's hacking, but don't be scared away! We still have shooting, punching dudes, gruff voices, driving like in every other open world action game!"

Purposely showing your game to be generic in trailers, when most people are interested in how this isn't. Oh well, I'm not the big publishers' target demographic.

That's some pretty epic trailer music, may i inquire the name of it ?

could be good

I have this pre-odered, one of the first i have for next gen. But the trailer was pretty crap. Comprised almost entirely of stuff we've already seen, not looking too hot visually (it looks like its massively limited by being cross gen) and there is a big risk it could just be assassins creed : present day edition. I hope it's good since i've pre ordered it, but nothing they've shown has had anywhere near the impact of first reveal footage.

The big question for Europe is: what version to pre-order. Will there be next gen consoles in Europe at the time of release?
Commented on 2013-04-29 19:12:52
Should you pre-order videogames?

If you want it delivered to your door about 3 days early...yes.

This trailer is from PC or PS4 ?

It will really be intresting to comparision between different console formats. The game looks intresting.
Commented on 2013-04-29 19:32:03
It'll be interesting to see just how close the current gen version is to the footage in this trailer. I'm betting it's going to be fairly close.

I'd say PC without a doubt.

This is my most anticipated game of 2013.

It's sad how new trailers are becoming a complete unimaginative cliche fest comparing to initial announce. Through three trailers made (of four) of one scene they walked straight way from smart Gibson-esque to 'they gonna paaaaaay" boom-boom drop style - hope it's just a traditional marketing move. If not - it will be a very-very big disappointment for me.

I think after may 21 will be preorders for nex gen.
Commented on 2013-04-29 22:32:04
gonna buy this if i can play it offline, and rumors about always being connected are not true

Pretty epic music video too!

So pumped for this game! Hope the premuium collectors edition makes it to PS4. Would be my first LE of next gen :)

I really wonder how much all these editions actually help sell the game.

They're taking PS4 pre orders for this game already? Can somebody post a link? please

I fail to see all the excitment. This is AC all over again...most of you will be regretting buying this in a couple of years when Ubisoft starts milking the crap out of it.

This game is simply NOT original.

ya its a modern day assassin's creed, in AC u were an assassin, in WD u r a vigilante with hacking skills, in AC we had templers screwing the world here in WD we have ctOS as the devil taking over the world, in AC u had the hood, here in WD u have a cap a shade and a overcoat

i honestly think this WAS assassins creed at some point in development, then they realised they could turn it into another anualised franchise. even the HUD looks incredibly similar to AC. i am getting major deja vu with how i felt about AC prior to launch. thinking it looked great, and something new and interesting. but AC was a massive dissapointment...i just hope that isn't the case with this.
