It looks interesting, and they made it so you can still climb it appears.
I suppose yeah there might not be tall buildings to do massive dives I'm off like in previous games. It just looks great from those pics, looking forward to it. But yeah a female descendant would be nice, maybe for the game after xD
I played half way through the first one, loved the second one to death, never finished Brotherhood and didn't play whatever came out last year. Honestly, I can't wait for this one. The American Colonial era is probably one of my top favorite time periods and I would love to play an Assassin's Creed game in that setting.
I felt Brotherhood was superior to AC2 in every way (story, setting, abilities, features, more content, AND had multiplayer!), but Revelations definitely seemed to merely tack-on a tower defense mode and bombs. The plot of Revelations hardly seemed necessary to spawn another Ezio sequel without any core improvements.
Considering how the lack of architecture in AC3 requires things to be mixed up, and how the combat is becoming streamlined and legitimate stealth is being introduced, I am really hopeful. The AI in AC is incredibly stale and pathetic, and I'm hoping real stealth mechanics address this issue.
Can't wait to see the first gameplay trailer tomorrow!
I don't know how I feel about the combat going in a more combo route though--but it'll probably be better than what we have with Assassin's Creed. I want a significantly improved system, moreso than a completely different, arcade combat system.
