New Assassin's Creed Screens
Man look at the screens, they look amazing as hell. Can wait for this game :)
man but that blue haze effect is weird though.
Yeah, its always been blue in all their screenshots. I think it's a bug.
it's the direction and theme of the Art. just like how Shadow of the collosus had a sepia tone, and how MGS games have traditionally been designed with sepia and greens in the art style direction. and it's also why Resistance has it's own shady hazy like look. It's the choice made conciously by the developers to go that direction in there art and graphics department. So all you people cant say that the ps3 has bad shaders and what it's not and horrible textures because it's colors for games looked washed out. that being said about MGS4 and resistance beause those were are exclusives. this game is a multiplatformer game, (one of the few i'll get this year for that matter), that has been built for both systems. so theres no excuse in saying that. Clearly it can be seens as a direction of art style. which is cool. it separtes itself from all that overly gossy Crap that some of these next gen games try to brush off as real. It's all was good to do stuff like that. it's kinda like that game graphics wise from Panademic that new title which drops next year called sabatour. which uses a sim city like approach to it's graphics. very interesting. i'm so getting this game
We've only ever seen one city...there's 4 or 5, and then there's the future...so I'm sure the art direction differs for each and probably has a different pallet. Nice to see this game is still hot and brings in the crowds
Although I really can't be bothered to find it, i think in one of the interviews with ubisoft they said that the entire game would be set in the past but jsut some story references to the future.......I could be wrong though..........
I'm realy getting tired of waiting for this game! I don't think they should keep teasing like this , soon I will just abadon this game, as it seems like a hype fest. Have they ever released a real vid of actual gameplay? All I ever see is screen shots and a couple CGI vids. I find games that are hyped this way don't tend to be that good! I just hope it lives up to the hype!
It will be because they r useing ps3 dev kits, once again another game that will look washed out on the ps3, but will hav to wait and see. cant wait for this game to come out and cant wait for ps3 vs 360 comparisions. This game will be the true test to see which machine is more powerful, it will be interesting to see waht version comes out on top.
They have already been seen from a trailer shown at E3 '05. We atleast know there will be scenes of the future, not just references, but if they will be playable or not has not been told. When you die in the game, you wake up in the future on an operating table surrounded by scientists. Thats about all we know.
I'm waiting to see more of it in action. The AI and animations of the crowd and the main character is what sold me in the first place. I hope they've improved with that. They still have months to tweak.
i'm not impressed by the look of these screens but the gameplay could be fun.
it looks like the white balance is off. way too cold.
The graphics look fine, but really, it could look like Mario 64 for all I care... Realistic sword-fighting, intelligent crowd manipulation, dynamic climbing system, and of course, medieval stealth action..... Yup. That's a purchase. * If you haven't seen it, watch the video of the X06 demo. It's awesome! http://media.xbox360.ign.co...
The demo was not impressive to me at all, am waiting for a much more improved gameplay trailer.
Well, to each his own... * Just watched the demo at gametrailers (HD version), and yeah, the game looks just as awesome as I remembered!
thanks for the video. i think i saw it before. yep, the gameplay is going to rock.
great looking screens...this game will be great when released.
yeah I asked along time ago if the color was intentionally meant to be like this and is this what we should expect it to look like in the final version with this same color effect....for me I'd rather see something more colorful than this light blue haze effect or whatever it is....Yes I think this game will be amazing but I'm praying that the dev's will "improve" the color.
blooming FX are the shiznit. Wanda and the Colossus had this look. I don`t know about you, but i luv it.
can you say wow?
Thanks smartass. I'll give you bubbles for atleast having a sense of humor. :)
Looks good though. Very nice from what I've seen. This is the game I use for an example when people try to say that graphics dont matter. I say then why was everyone so freaking out about AC when we first saw the screen shots. We didn't know anything about the game at the time other than that it was gorgeous.
i think the new prince of persia is going to be very similar. What do you think?
after seeing some bad ports, im still wondering how this game will turn out.
what does a crappy port have to do with this game? I hope you dont think this is simply being made for the 360 and being ported to the ps3...
Am sorry but they really need to tell us something more about gameplay i wanna be excited for this game but as of now it's not happening. These screens look good but am beggin for something more than just eye candy. Yeah WTFF is up with all the blue?
those were some dark times.the crusades had a lot of killing because of religious reasons.not because those people were necessarily bad.just believed in something different. anyway,hideo kojima uses the same tactic when it comes to graphics.would i like to see a colorful metal gear?sure.but then it wouldn't have that unique style. looks good though.
Shadowgamer i guess your right about Mr. Kojima's tacktics but this just seems a bit over done. MGS4 looks more gritty because of yellowish haze they put in it. Assassins creed looks a bit like the game took place in the wee hours of the morning. It could be that one stage but all the pics an video's i've remembered seein on this game have had the same over done blue effect to it. Well i'll just wait an see how well this tactic works.
The game is rumored to actually take place in the future and involve memories. Perhaps the blue overcast is a result of digging into the DNA memory, or maybe the entire game is being watched on a computer screen by someone in the future?
huh? I really hope that's a joke and if it's not you need to seriously get in touch with this game's premise.
No, it's just what I've read and heard, surely someone can back me up on this. If not, just search for it, it should be fairly easy to look up. Basically, the gist of what has been tossed around is that at the end of the demo shown at X'06 when the player died, the screen gets all fuzzy and talks about a malfunction in DNA memory access. That, and some girl involved with the game let it slip a few months ago that the game deals with DNA memory work being worked on in real life today. I'm not saying I'm right, that's just my theory. If not, it could just be that it's traditional to use a blue filter when making movies based in this time and place (see most medieval movies from the past 2 decades). It makes things look more dreary and impoverished.
oh that's weird. I guess I'm misinformed. I totally thought this just had to do with old medievil times and he was a assassin
It is in medieval times, and he is an assassin, but its been said that they are using one of his descendents in modern times and going through his DNA to see memories of Altair.
I remember when they were showing it on the 360 that the guy playing died during a sword fight and it said something about digital memory or some sci-fi vocabulary. I didn't even look into this game that much and I knew it had some futuristic twist to it.
Why has it taken them so long to put out this game. Seeing screens and updates for a game that span over 2 years is brutal. it has been 2 years right?
I guess they want to make it great for both console, ps3, xbox360. In first public demo they showed it with xbox360 and in that demo they said the reason why they show it with 360 is because the AI works currently better with it. So.. why so long? They of course want both versions to be equally good.
those screens look like ass crack
all in all everyone will get this game and love it. This blue thing is really nice though these are scans. and scans never do a game justice anyways. i'll wait to see HD screens. from IGN or something
This game was in development for the 360 long before a PS3 existed. All the demo's at E3 were shown on 360's. Maybe they are doing simulataneous development but this is not going to be a port from the PS3. And if I'm wrong show me a link to back up what you're saying.
These screens look old to me,oh well i might be wrong though
Really, AC has everything a game needs. Free sandbox gameplay in an ancient medieval city filled with perfect MGS/SC stealth elements. Throw in a bunch of Prince Of Persia elements and the si fi time travel story and Jesper Kyd's music (Of Hitman series) and you got THE game to watch for.
this game is looking pretty good- a good oblivion rivalry. the graphics are looking pretty good, but i hope the gameplay is good as well. graphics dont make a game good, gameplay does. with all that said, this game seems to be progressing well. oh, and in response to the blueish hue, i dont think it's gonna be that way in the final release- it could- but i dont think so as it looks a tad washed out
MGS1 was blue. I think it's just blue in this stage...I've watched the interviews sayng they wanted a diff art direction to other games. I wouldn't worry, it'll look great.
looks good .. and blue ;-)
This game will be crap on the PS3. Ubi doesn't know how to code well for the PS3.
a port but something that plays equally for both consoles.
looks nice but what's the hold up! i've seen alot of E3 videos about PS3 an only a handful are out! don't know whats up with that but ohh well! Assassian's gonna be in a class of it's own tho just like Motor Storm!
I think it is an old screenshot, this game is coming out this year i think or is it next year? maybe we all have to wait until E3 on July 13th for some new videos of some games which we really want.
Everywhere I've read has stated this. So I expect a ton more teasing and screenshot lameness before we can actually play this game. Sometimes I wish dev's would just shut-up about it until they actually have a release date in mind and not tease us for 2 years..
Man can't wait for the game. I also want to know what's true about the rumors that Assassin's Creed is actually set in the near future.
the attached vid is a link to the E3 06 onstage demonstration , it's definately , NOT BLUE . Just bad screens is all. View the attached page. This is in game by the way not a trailer.
time flux/wrap, right before!? :)
Man those are nice screenshots, blue haze or not. The detail of this game is amazing. I'm anxious to see if they'll releae a demo on live or the playstation store for gamers to get some hands on time for AC.
