I liked AC1 and 2 very much, but not enough to spend lots of money on what appears to be extra content for AC2. I will wait until AC3.

It's not really 'extra content' for AC2.

AC2's story was so big they had to split it into a trilogy to fit it all in. Each of these games are nearly the same size in scope.

Yes, Rome was originally going to be in AC2, but got cut due to time restraints. At first they thought about adding it in as a small DLC content patch.

But they decided to expand upon it and turn it into a complete game.

If you miss out on this trilogy though, you are missing out on important Desmond storyline leading up to AC3.

I won't be surprised if they end up splitting up AC3 into a trilogy (or more) as well!

Well, ya, King's Quest is on Earth. Daventry is very old city from a long time ago. It's in ruins now and people aren't quite sure exactly where it used to be. There are some archaeologists searching through the ruins, they think they know its Daventry. But its somewhere on Earth."-Roberta Williams http://kingsquest.wikia.com/wiki/File:Daventryisearth.ogg

The only thing is, at this point in the story, not much is known. We are still in the dark for the most part. So even if Revelations does spill some juicy details, they could stretch the story on forever. Although that would be awesome for all parties, I do not want to suffer from another Lost experience; where they tease you and then drop a big "WTF" bomb at the end and have you regret the last 7 years of your life.  >:(

Ubisoft released their gameplay video with an added commentary. It's not different from the other video, just has a guy explaining everything as he's doing it. Enjoy!

well, ubisoft has annualized the assassins creed franchise. its become one of their biggest properties. they aren't going to just let it end. after AC3, I have no doubt we'll be getting more games. I'm also sure that, eventually, the franchise will suffer from franchise fatigue. the truth of the matter is that eventually people are going to get tired of the franchise, no matter how good the games end up being. I'm sure the next couple of Games will continue to be good and sell well, but eventually its going to crash. what goes up must come down. its only a matter of time. of course, they'll give the franchise a couple years of rest, and then reboot it. its the way things in this industry work.

Well, I'm fine with how its currently going but after AC3 they really need to slow down on it.

Agreed. But don't expect them to. Ubisoft is going to milk AC for all it's worth, and I don't think we'll be seeing it slow down at all; if anything, they'll speed it up.

I think it'll definitely depend on how people will react to the titles. If they speed up development of the titles at the price of quality, then I think fans will notice that the series will not last forever. If sales go down, so will production. The story must have a conclusion though. They have definitely set themselves up for an arcing storyline. Desmond will can't fail like the previous subjects, and he can't go on forever, cause Abstergo is right behind him. But for what we've seen, there will have to be a conclusion to Desmond's story one way or another. Now, after Desmond's adventure, they can easily adapt a new protagonist in the same universe and explore new timelines. But that's where they will most likely kill the series.

If anything, I would like them to innovate the series completely for other timelines. Assassins from every time period couldn't have possibly used the hidden blade for all of their assassinations, right? Even with tradition, there can be a way to influence a more modern age to their creed. Also, how will Desmond dodge bullets? Not every Abstergo agent is going to be carrying a nightstick. I think gunplay would be apropos for the modern era, but only if done right.

I'd love to see a modern-day or future Assassin's Creed game; that could be a lot of fun. I imagine the assassin in question would wear some kind of armor, perhaps a bulletproof vest or hell, metal or something. I'd imagine desmond's Hoodie would be the appropriate attire, too. I think I can definitely see the series move in that direction over time. I'd like to see it slowly but surely move up through the time-line until it gets to modern-day or near-future or something.

We might get those things in AC3...? It is after all Desmond's assassin game, the one in which he is supposed to save the world. He needs something to protect him from bullets. Can't expect alll guards to use batons.

Exactly, but I think a bulletproof vest would look rather silly. It would be the first thought for protection against bullets, but Desmond will have to be swift as an assassin, and Kevlar is pretty heavy. But then again, so was Ezio's plate armor. Hmm . . .  :-\

I do prefer Desmond keeping his hoodie, but one thing I want to see is Desmond getting his own modern Brotherhood. Possibly the Brotherhood that was originally trying to bust him out of Abstergo.

Fierce Diety, they are coming out with Spider/Goat plate. It's genetically enginerred by inserting spider genes into goats and can be produced in the goat's milk.

Supposed to be stronger than Kevlar, and super light. It's already in testing phases as far as I know.

*for some reason, imagines a goat dressed up like Spiderman*

Awesome!

The future is now.  :futuristic:

That sounds kinda weird, but hey, if it works, it works!

I do prefer Desmond keeping his hoodie, but one thing I want to see is Desmond getting his own modern Brotherhood. Possibly the Brotherhood that was originally trying to bust him out of Abstergo.

I'd love to see Desmond get a modern-day brotherhood as well. I imagine that the weapons have evolved over time, as well. For example, I imagine there could be a throwing knife launcher, a more powerful hidden gun, or hell, a built-in crossbow. it's not hard. it would just need to fold up and stuff. Also, I was kind of hoping to see Da Vinci's flying machine in a more compact version that could be worn by the assassin as a backpack or something; press a button (or pull a cord; whatever fits the time period) and the flying machine would unfold or something. Now THAT would be awesome. You know, I'd almost like to see an MMO set in the Assassin's Creed universe; it would open up a lot of gameplay opportunities. You could choose a specific type of assassin with a specialty in one area (stealth, combat, free-running/escape, etc) and fight rival brotherhoods or factions, or hell, the templars. you could choose to be a templar if you wanted... you know, Ubisoft should hire me as their idea guy. I could give them all sorts of cool stuff.

A jetpack would be cool, but I'd want it to work with the open world environment. If it allows Desmond to virtually travel across the entire map undisturbed, it would be pretty cheap in my opinion. I want to see how the hookblade works in Revelations, before having an opinion on other modes of transportation.

I want to use the hookblade right now. That thing looks AWESOME! The only downside is that it's a single hookblade; I was hoping for a double hookblade of some kind.

Maybe it will be one of the upgrades. Ezio only had one hidden blade, before he got the upgrade to have two of them.  :-\

I'm pretty sure the hookblade is a single weapon. I don't believe there's a second one.
