He had to have a plan for the series moving forward, and I'm sure he shared that plan. I think the series is in good hands, even without his direct involvement.

I'd like to know an estimated percentage on single-player to multi-player content.

It seems like most of the achievements are for single player, I wonder if that's a good correlation?

Can you at least give a percentage estimate on the single-player to multi-player content?

Or at least a yes or no on if it's enough of a single player experience for a fan of the first two games?

Holy shit so excited for another AC game. Man, reading about the guild stuff really gets me going. Being able to send dudes out on missions? Sounds so cool. Definitely hope there is a bunch more micro-managing in this game. I didn't really realize that Desmond and gang would play a very important role in this game; seems this is more and more like AC3.

If my % of progression keeps moving as it does, it looks like it will be a 15 to 20 hours long game.
And with this, I'll stop talking about it :)

The only thing I'm unsure of is having a squad of dudes you can order around. I avoided hiring any help in AC2 because it was too damn easy already, there was one mission where you were supposed to let a group of troops in a base to help you but I just climbed in the base and did it all myself. I'd rather go solo.

Not that I have any idea why he left, but something had to convince him to leave. Hard to imagine he would just up and leave such a high-level position at a company he'd been with for so long in a major-selling series that he was the creative force behind. Definitely makes me more skeptical about this release.

Of course, that won't stop me from picking this up. Really enjoyed the MP beta.

oh well, I think I'll have to deal with it.

Didn't agree with PC DRM? No, but seriously. There could be many reasons why he decided to leave. With such a position and level of game, comes more time and responsibility necessary. Maybe he wanted to focus on his family? Or maybe something even better, in his eyes, came along. I really don't see his leaving as a direct relation to the level of quality in this upcoming release.

The Exotic Gameplay trailer is beyond badass. I was hyped for the game already, but this just proves the missions have been much improved. They seem to be a lot more layered and unique.

I'm a big fan of the "full synchronization" aspect of the game as well. It really allows the developers to craft cool linear missions for those who want to play it with a cinematic flair, but also allows for a lot of freedom for those who prefer to play the game in their own way.

I thiiiiiiink I read an interview that said the SP would be somewhat similar in length to AC2's. If that's true then it will be pretty meaty. (15-20 hours?)

Eh... This is going to make me sound like a jackass, but I feel it needs to be said:

Don't watch the OP's personal beta videos. That's really not the way the game is meant to be played. The MP is at its best when people are playing more stealthily and not constantly running around.

Also, that playstyle really isn't encouraged by the game. As you can see, he's only getting 100-150 points for each of his kills. Sure, he may be getting a lot of them, but they're really not rewarding in the least. Well-thought out, 800-1000 point kills are a lot more satisfying for everyone in the game because they aren't constantly seeing people run around like chickens with their heads cut off.

Of course, this is all my personal opinion.

The story for the two DLCs is pretty self-contained. They're connected to each other but mostly irrelevant to what will probably happen in AC:B. I think you should play them, though. Battle of Forli is a bit short, but it fully develops Forli when it was underutilized in the main game. Bonfire of the Vanities adds a new area to Florence and is a long string of awesome assassination missions.

I've heard similar. I'll probably end up (hopefully) waiting past my goal of before the end of 2010 and into 2011 since I'm only interested in single player and this, like all Ubi games, will probably plummet in price pretty fast. I'm sure it'll be just as fun 3-4 months after it's released.
