Check Out Desmond Miles' Easter Egg in Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag [SPOILERS]

Be aware that this video includes some rather large spoilers, so proceed at your own risk.

If you were looking for some closure in the story of Assassin’s Creed former protagonist Desmond Miles, and don’t want to get very deep into the story of Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag before knowing what happened to the controversial (a lot of people seem to really hate him) character, you’ll find the answer in the video below.

Be also aware that the comments below are going to probably include spoilers as well, so if you don't wanna see em, don't scroll down. (Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag, PC, PS3, PS4, Wii U, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

So will they clone him or will they revive him with new obtained pieces of Eden in the future to take on Juno.

I highly doubt Desmonds parents, long term members of the Assassins Guild will stand for their son being tested on by the templars.

I believe he will come back in some way.

Hopefully not, boring character.

Terrible article title.
I don't want to know any AC spoilers, they should be only for people who click into the article. and now you revealed that Desmond is in the game by putting it in the headline!

Please be mindful of people who don't want the game spoiled because your behaviour to gets hits spoils the Easter Eggs I would find in my own time.

Dual shockers is a great website but if you use your privileges of early access to games to ruin my experience and this will keep happening with your articles then I won't come back.

Thanks for spoiling the game you jackaloons.
Abriael  +   671d ago
You must not follow the news, as it was all over the news and officially announced by Ubisoft.

The fact that he returns in some form is no spoiler, as it's common knowledge.

Since I have seen nothing of the sort it is a spoiler. The game has not been out 24 hours and people posting spoilers.

It it was 6 months from now I wouldn't have an issue but less than a day is not on.
Abriael  +   671d ago
@Lucreto: the title has been changed, and this one does not includes any possible spoilers.

There's no rule on this site against spoilers. And the title and description warn the reader about them abundantly.

Oh shove it. It's a freaking spoiler.

Once again we have inconsiderate jackholes here using blatant spoilers as titles for hits.

Common knowledge.. Pfft

As long as YOU knew about it, then it's okay I guess.

aawells07  +   671d ago
It's def NOT common knowledge as I didn't know a thing about that and I follow dozens of gaming sites several times a day. The title to this article IS a spoiler whether you like it or not. It doesn't matter if the site doesn't have a rule against spoilers it's just common knowledge to NOT do it.

i follow any thing and everthing AC and ubisolf said he dead...as in not comeing back. I wish they would bring him back but it's not gonna happen. ubisolf said hes gone they put that in the game because people was asking what happen right after ac3.

Well, to be fair, you did click on a link that says [SPOILERS] and "Be aware that this video includes some rather large spoilers, so proceed at your own risk. "
Lucreto  +   671d ago
Even mentioning desmond is a spoiler in itself. Spoilers should have been first.
TekoIie  +   671d ago
Its on the front page and right at the top of the feed for me -_-

How do you just avoid that? Especially when spoilers is the last word in the title...

Is reading things backwards a new trend or something/s

And the game director himself publicly announced that there was a Desmond easter egg in the game

Much more explicitly than the title does, mind you.
Nitrowolf2  +   671d ago

you assume everyone read that news? I certainly didn't. Regardless, it's a spoiler.
KillrateOmega  +   671d ago
Are we really going to blow this out of proportion (I'm talking to everyone in this particular thread under NukaCola)?

Yes. Abriael should have put "[SPOILERS]" as the first word, but there's no need to crucify the guy.

What has even been spoiled? That Desmond Miles, a character who has appeared in every other AC game and is integral to the overarching plot of the AC series, will be in this game? Come now...

Try to have some empathy.

If you are defending him then you are just as inconsiderate as he is.

I'm not going to explain it to you. You clearly can't comprehend the issue.

KillrateOmega  +   671d ago
So what? Because I'm trying to defend a guy who is basically being burned alive for a relatively minor mistake and inject some perspective into the conversation, I'm suddenly 'inconsiderate' and, as you are implying, 'stupid'?

I fully comprehend your, and everyone else's, problem with this spoiler. Spoilers suck. They ruin the suspense for anyone trying to enjoy a product, but with the way you're all acting, you'd think that your entire AC: Black Flag experience has just gone down the drain over this.

Now if had been a major spoiler concerning the story and character of Edward Kenway, then that would truly be a tragedy, but it's not. It's a spoiler concerning Desmond Miles, a character who isn't anywhere close to being the main focus of this particular installment.

You want to play it like this? Fine.
Take your condescending tone and shove it up your, what I'm sure is a, well-fisted ***.

Dude you are completely disregarding his "too bad" attitude.

Nobody is even coming close to burning him at the stake, as you so dramatically put.

Did Abe even give the slightest sign of remorse?

No. So he doesn't need you defending him, when he is already refusing to admit any fault.

I apologize for my initial reply to you. It was uncalled for. It is just frustrating to see someone actually defend a guy that couldn't care less he ruined that for myself and others.

But that is no excuse.
KillrateOmega  +   670d ago
I have sent you a PM containing my apology and explanation. It was not placed here due to the risk of you never seeing it.

Soooo...just don't watch the video? Is that hard?
DragonKnight  +   671d ago
Man, Ubisoft is just content to butcher Assassin's Creed aren't they? This is ridiculous in my opinion. They keep moving further and further away from what the first game was about.
-Foxtrot  +   671d ago
When I saw Pirates were going to get mixed with Assassins and they gave the 4th game a subtitle I knew they would start to drift away from what made the game...Assassins Creed.

It's going to be one of those franchises that drift off into other stories which don't even have anything to do with what the franchises was about.

I mean I've seen no talk of Juno in this game in the present sections. After AC3's ending she is the next threat and theres nothing on her.

If they were going to do this to Desmond and continue to reference him then they may as well of kept him alive. I know he's not interesting but he keeps the present sections together and gives them purpose. The next mission of theirs should of been "How do we stop Juno".

The third game felt it became more about the war, colonialists and redcoats and this game seems more focused on Pirates and Naval battles which would of been better off as a new IP.

I think it started to drift away after brotherhood or revelations. Ezio still kept to the creed and such but he just had a lot more characteristics to him. Conner and the current one Edward are just Meh, they can fight but there still sort of forgettable. Wouldn't say its butchered more along the lines of scattered. They need to take more time than a year to build a truly amazing character and story instead of what we've been getting.

@-Foxtrot: Yeah, I immediately saw the laziness present in AC4 the second they announced that it was about pirates. It was clear that they ran out of ideas in AC3 and took the one thing everyone liked about that game to make another game in AC4. They then phone in the Present Day aspects when they could have retconned the whole Animus/Juno stuff and just made it about Desmond's Bloodline, but no they had to cheese in some Abstergo Entertainment angle that's a really lame tie in.

AC1 had the theme right. They should have made it Assassin's vs. Templars throughout history without any alien B.S. (yeah, I know that the end of the game had it, but it was such a non-focus for most of the game)

I used to dislike Ezio because I felt he didn't have that Assassin focus that Altair did and was too much of a play boy (though all the Assassin's seem to share arrogance in common), but replaying Brotherhood and Revelations has given me a better appreciation for Ezio as a character and it seems that that's where Ubisoft made a change in focus. AC1 was about Templars vs. Assassin's, AC2, ACB, and ACR were about the character of an Assassin, AC3 was about nonsense, and AC4 is barely an AC game at all.

I wish they would have kept it simple. The next game will probably be a flight simulation game.

@Shadonic: Yeah, they did. I don't think that the AC2 trilogy had the focus on Assassins vs. Templars as much as the first game did, but it still had a decent focus on it. They also tried establishing Ezio as the portrayal of a life as an Assassin because with Altair they didn't do too much. But AC3 was just terrible and AC4 is just too far removed from what should have been the main theme of the series.

I stand by my statement that Ubisoft are butchering what could have been an amazing and limitless franchise.
