This is What Assassin’s Creed III’s Connor Used to Look Like

Kotaku - Here's what Assassin's Creed III's Connor looks like in the near-finished product. He's got flowing elements to his outfit, and a nice touch of blue. It is, considering the constraints of the military dress of the time, a pretty sharp outfit.

In this gallery, though, you'll see some shots of what he looked like back in 2010, when pre-production for the game was in full-swing. Where there's now blue there was once re (Assassin's Creed III, PC, PS3, Wii U, Xbox 360)

It is too much like altair

I like it aswell

This design has a blend of blue and red on it which most people would relate to both sides of the war, the red coats (red) and the americans (blue) and also his character, red relating to him being half British and blue because he was born in America.

The final design just shows Connor in mostly blue which makes him look one sided which goes against all of ubisofts statements about him not getting involved with the war or choosing a side to fight for

The old design showed an Assassin who looked like he was going after templars, similar to Altairs look, a blend of the Assassins past and what they stand for with a twist of his own design to suit the present time he's in, not him looking like he's leading one side to victory in the war around him.

Altair - the first thing that came to mind; the final design is more distinct.

The new Connor is more beefy, but while I like his new outfit more, I prefer this older version where his build was thinner and more agile. It feels like they tried too hard to hammer home the "MMA fighter" look with the new build.

Im never gonna be able to like this guy as a lead character as much as much as Altair or Ezio. bloody Connor. Theres gonna be a tonne of people spelling my name wrong from now on.

Old one is way better imo. Oh well.

I actually like the pre alpha version better as well, much more easy on the eyes. The current one just has too much going on and he looks like a brute not an assassin

What the heck does Farcry has to do in this article?

I'm talking about the images in the post for those of you who didn't click to see it.

I prefer the one which is going to make it into release. This design looks too much like Altair and it just doesnt have anything striking about it.

They should include it as an unlockable alternate costume.
yaz288  +   559d ago
Didn't like it .. too fancy, if you waked around like that people should notice you.. reminded me of ezio .. assassins shouldn't be wearing fancy stuff.. more like altier is better, normal and realistic

the new design is perfect..

The newer petticoat looks so much better. The shoulders on this look weird and it's too derivative of Altair. I also like how they bulked him up. The current design is simplistic but it works really well.

Looks so much better....

Old one looks more authentic and fits the era a lot better. You'd think assassins' be trying to blend in: not create a fashion statement.
