WTF !! They have changed his face to look like Connor ???
lashes2ashes  +   1149d ago
You can't even see his full face.
Marcello  +   1149d ago
I can see enough of it to tell.
Nimblest-Assassin  +   1149d ago
Can't see enough of his face to say he looks like connor

However, Rebecca and Shawn got a visual improvement compared to revelations

Hell.. they all look better

Ok after having downloaded the image & looked at it more closely, i think it night be a pre render & not a screenshot
Eamon  +   1149d ago
Marlec, just to let you know, the base models for Desmond, Altair, Ezio and Connor are all the same.

Meaning Connor looks like Desmond, it's not Desmond's face that's changed.
Marcello  +   1149d ago
I hear wat your saying Eamon, i am not saying for sure as the pic is vague but it does look different to me. The nose & cheek bones resemble the face of conner from the new Connor trailer.

I guess we will see when the game arrives.

This looks like the Desmond I know from AC1,AC2, ACB and ACR.
rpd123  +   1149d ago
They changed his face something awful in ACR.
Kurt Russell  +   1148d ago
looks the same to me...
Plagasx  +   1149d ago
If anything his face looks more detailed due to the fact that they are using a brand new engine...
showtimefolks  +   1149d ago
this game on a new engine looking sweet. I just can't get into AC series i wish i could but every time i try it its just not for me. But overall these are very good games

my biggest turn off is the combat if somehow they can make that into kickass combat moves/weapons etc i would be all for it. I feel like overall these games are so polished yet the combat is at a basic level and hasn't gotten that much better

Now if this has better combat and i hope it does than i would love to give this series another shot

Eff you!!you spoiling the game man, i didnt play ACR yet

Lucy got killed off in Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood. :/
MasterD919  +   1149d ago
Desmond needed plastic surgery anyways...his face always looked smushed.

Edit: Oh yeah...and clearly, he has nothing else in his closet. 5 games later and he somehow still can't afford a new shirt.

He has no closet :( He's always on the move
AzaziL  +   1149d ago
Sucks he's in the same clothes as when the templars snatched him up, damn he must reek by now.
Lockon  +   1149d ago
He looks different in every game..
Neo Nugget  +   1149d ago
If you look at some of the eurogamer demo videos for the game, you can actually control Desmond in the standard "run forever" loading screens. He looks like he means business ^^

Also, what's up with Shaun's face? :O
iamnsuperman  +   1149d ago
Yer what is with Shaun's face. He looks like he is dying.
jb1276  +   1149d ago
seems like someone is missing from this photo...a girl.. blonde hair... hmmmm whatever happened to her... oh thats right! it was some BS
Neo Nugget  +   1149d ago
Maybe it's because that certain somebody was a traitor and deserved her fate.
jb1276  +   1149d ago
was searching around the interweb and came across a post that mentioned:

"A lot of this is answered in the ACR DLC: The Lost Archive"

is that right? - never played it so just curious
iamnsuperman  +   1149d ago
That is a question, for me, needs to answered in this game. In the first one the eagle vision proves she was good then that happened. I would like to see of there was a reason for this or what she got was simply lazy writing and wanting a big WTF ending.
Neo Nugget  +   1149d ago
Here's the link on Project Siren (the plan in which Lucy was to lead Desmond on in order to get more information out of him).


And yes, it was explained in Revelations' DLC, but it's confirmed to get answered in AC3 as well.
Eamon  +   1149d ago
The Lucy appearing as Blue in Eagle Vision doesn't mean she wasn't a double agent.

Eagle Vision isn't a 100% correct system. It works on the assassin's own instinct of determining ally from enemy. In AC1, Al Mualim was shown in blue when Altair did Eagle Vision, until the end where he appears in red.

Also, in Brotherhood, you see Lucy's footsteps outside the villa as red in eagle vision.

Desmond is the main character of the game.
PhoenixRising37  +   1149d ago
he kinda looks less like adam sandler now.
FarCryLover182  +   1149d ago
Desmond is still funnier than Adam S.!!!
PhoenixRising37  +   1149d ago
0pie  +   1149d ago
just to be sure... the older guy is William... his father?
Neo Nugget  +   1149d ago

*Revelations Multiplayer Spoilers!*

If you view the final multiplayer video in Revelations, you'll find out that the Templars plan to execute a plan to kill William. Daniel Cross (From The Fall/Chain) is also present, but not shown.

Also, here's a fun fact! Daniel Cross was the one that kidnapped Desmond.
Eamon  +   1149d ago
He kidnapped Desmond? I had no idea. Where did you find out about that?
Fez  +   1148d ago
Man, too much story in multiplayer and DLC in Assassins Creed. I think I'm done with it now, it has a cool overarching story but too much fleecing to actually see it all e.g. Ezio's death being in a £7 short, brotherhood and revelations and their respective dlc.

Yeh I think I'm done with the series now. Fun games but they've run their course with me.

not enough info to tell what desmond truly looks like now but from that angle it makes his head look like E.T.
csreynolds  +   1149d ago
The character models look great, although Desmond, Shaun and Rebecca need to go clothes shopping... :-P
sly-Famous  +   1149d ago
I love the Assassins Creed series but I think Ubisoft has gone the wrong direction with this one, I believe this game is going to struggle outside the US and I think its going to have a very tough time in Europe.
Braid  +   1148d ago
Why do you think that, because Europeans don't know anything about American history, or the story doesn't appeal to any gamer living outside of US? Some people do read, you know.
GenericNameHere  +   1149d ago
The game has a wonderful artstyle and graphical capabilities... Except for the faces. In all 4 games so far (excluding handheld games), I've NEVER once thought of these people's faces as "Gee, that person sure does have a pretty face". Desmond, Altair, Ezio, and everyone else ALL look ugly as heck, and even more ugly when in cutscenes, as they all seem stiff. When in gameplay, and the faces are not the things you look out for, I'm like "Gee, this game is and looks mighty swell!".

Hope ACIII finally solves my fear of ugly people in AC!
