I know, hence why I said where im judging it from. was legitimately asking if we knew more and I missed it

That's Antoine Lavoisier, the father of modern Chemistry.
that screen just gives me a big "Im a supporting character that makes you new gadgets" vibe

Oh I thought you were asking what the person did that made them relevant/new feeling.

My assumption is that in a game context he is likely the gadget person yes.

I do find it interesting that they finally have an assassin who is slender in build. Sleek and quick... almost like the Thief protagonist.

I really hope they get back to the roots of the series where you had multiple missions leading up to a special assassination. It's kind of sad that the first game in the series did it best.

I'm also interested in his posture with his sword. I wonder if they're taking swordplay more seriously - like basing those fights on fencing and commuting to that firm of fighting - rather than the usual smorgasbord of weapons.

If they went all in I'd be cool with only having the hidden cross bow and the rapier.

And even the first game failed to live up to the potential of the series' concept. There's so much interesting stuff you could do with the whole social aspects and the infiltration aspects of the Assassin's Creed idea. But I suspect they'd never really build on that because it would mean making the games less action-focused and that wouldn't go down well with the mainstream audience. Gotta sell those 12 million units...

That really is the number one thing I hope is improved for this game, I really don't know if I can take a seventh game with the same bland rinse and repeat combat that the series has used for far too long. The countering system just makes the whole thing a joke.

Honestly, all the game needs is a crouch.

Think it would alleviate pretty much any issue with any of the stealth missions

let us fucking crouch on command!

Is this picture implying that one store has two different preorder offers for this game?

No, the other preorder offer is a slot machine sweepstakes thing that happens once a week up to launch, so the earlier you preorder the more chances you have to win.

Thanks. Without seeing the whole thing I was reading it like it was pick mission A or mission B when you preorder.

Picture looks nice. Not going to get excited about this though, every Ubisoft game I buy ends up disappointing me, except for Rayman.

Davinci was the only one who ever made the player gadgets.

Ben Franklin gave you jack shit.

So wait, this isn't AC5? They had two back-to-back numbered sequels and that's just over now?
I guess.

It could be a case of a brotherhood/revelation situation as well considering the french revolution occured soon after the american one.

So I assume Chile (or Comet, or whatever it is) is for last gen? I wonder if Ubi will port it to next gen, I'd totally buy both
