They weren't kidding with the enormous crowds part. And you can play 4 player co-op too. Something past AC's never did... I swear I would like a certain person to comment on this info and hear his opinion with all this latest information out.

But I'm sure he'll stay quiet.

I agree you can see the city has more people compared to previous games. You can see now why Ubisoft was struggling with the AI part of the game.

Holy S***, look at that frame rate.
WTF is that glitch at 3:50?
New Assassin ability now allows you to blend through walls, literally.

Okay.My ousin has the game.And he says there's a section that has an unbelievably HUGE crowd.And they're not static.Like realistic crowds.He says it felt crazy while doing a leap of faith during that section.

Watching this can't help but feel been there, done that, and I am a huge AC fan.

bixxel1533d ago

This game will beat AC2 for once!

Conzul1533d ago

Not really a chance of it beating AC2.

Every AC, the story and characters get more and more watered down. The soundtrack gets watered down. The combat gets simplified. Everything gets more accessible.

AC1 was the best. Not even AC2.


Snookies121534d ago

Same here, I mean shoot I have the AC logo tattooed on me. I mean, it's really pretty, lots of crowds, and big... But, it still kinda feels the same as the rest from what I've seen. I'll no doubt play it at some point, I'm just not sure what they can do to make it feel different. You know, aside from the whole 'feudal Japan' thing they seem to want to stay clear of for some reason. I think that would be a big change in scenery and people, and something like that could do wonders to refresh the players that have AC fatigue.

Sashamaz1534d ago

Well you can't expect Assassins creed to suddenly turn into uncharted or tomb raider into halo, if they changed this game to something else then it wouldn't be Assassins creed, that is the whole point of a sequel. How many games can you name that changed from the one before? I buy assassin games because they offer a type of experience that is not found in other games and when I want change I simply play another game.

Snookies121534d ago

@Sashamaz - I'm not asking for a drastic change, just enough to make the experience feel new again. As I said, I'm not entirely sure how they can go about doing that without changing things too much, but... Well, I've just found myself being a little bored of AC lately. Although I had a lot of fun with Black Flag.

starchild1533d ago

If the changes they are bringing with Unity aren't drastic enough for you I doubt any reasonable change would be enough for you. Just play something else. They would literally have to change Assassin's Creed into a different game to satisfy some of you.

The improvements they have made to the traversal mechanics, the combat, the mission structure, the customization, the presentation, and the stealth mechanics feel dramatic to me. Most series don't see changes or improvements this significant. It seems quite fresh to me.

Snookies121533d ago (Edited 1533d ago )

@starchild - I think you're missing my point. It's not about gameplay changes. It's about the scenery, and cultures themselves. I already stated above that I'm not asking for drastic changes. So I'm not sure why you're implying that reasonable changes wouldn't be enough for people like me. I'm tired of the same looking cities/towns every AC game. I want something visually different. Black Flag was a great way to change things up visually, as you were at sea for a lot of that game. If we had some more modern day Assassin's Creed games, or something set in a more Asian part of the world... Egypt could be cool too, or a Roman setting. Just something that changes things up, that's all I really want.

starchild1533d ago

Ok, I misunderstood you. If you had been talking about gameplay changes I was finding it hard to understand how the changes they have made wouldn't seem enough.

But in terms of scenery I agree with you. I'm getting tired of the European type cities. We need something new that feels more exotic or at least different for the series. So, yeah, sorry, I actually completely agree with you.

Snookies121533d ago

@starchild - No worries, I probably could have worded my slight complaints a bit better lol. My fatigue does rest solely with the scenery. The gameplay, and stories of the Assassin's Creed world are still very interesting for me personally. I just typically find that it's hard to keep interest, when the style of the cities/towns are nearly the same as the last several games. It's why I mentioned feudal Japan, Egypt, and the Roman empire periods of time. They all seem like they could be a great way to change things up visually. And, they would certainly renew my excitement in starting a new AC game.

I agree.. I just can't seem to get excited for this either...

True_Samurai1534d ago

In coop do all players have the same faces?

True_Samurai1534d ago

Disagrees for asking a simple question? Lol ok

ion531533d ago

I think it means no. No they don't. It's randomised

Travis37081534d ago

The graphics don't look that good. Idk about buying this.. I'll just get Far Cry 4 or something......

Geekman1534d ago (Edited 1534d ago )

Ok first of all, yes they do look good. They look GREAT.

Second off, how is that a reason not to buy the game?

Third off, if you were gonna buy nothing but cross gen titles like Far Cry, why did you get a Ps4!?

aceitman1534d ago

@geekman he didn't mention ps4 r u trolling or just assumed

starchild1533d ago

You're blind. This is one of the best looking games so far. It has more advanced graphics than Far Cry 4 that's for sure.
