Not far anymore until the game is released but just to carry us a bit further, here are the latest tidbits.
Short and sweet:
In less-than-suprising news the game will be on two discs for the Xbox, one for the single player and the other for the multiplayer. The Assassin’s Creed subreddit asked if there will be tombs in the game and the answer is a “yes” so look forward to finding your way through strange labyrinths. Also from the AC subreddit a small thread about the continuation of the story line after the upcoming one. Kotaku has an interesting article on how the climbing mechanics were completely rebuilt for the game and how it influenced the rest of the game development. The Verge has an equally interesting in which a developer credits Skyrim as an influence which promises some rather fascinating and earlier unseen.
Here’s a look at the very first DLC for the game; Tyranny of King George in which in which George Washington is evil and enjoys his newly achieved powers a bit too much.
Last but not least – here’s the fan-created awesomeness!
Here’s a side-by-side of the trailers of Revelations and AC 3 of which you should mute the trailer for Assassin’s Creed 3. It doesn’t fit seamlessly but it does work well enough to get the right impression. Also: AC logic, amazing three colored graphic image, a fan-made movie poster, Francisco Randez, face model for Desmond, Altair and Ezio. Last but most amazing of all: redditor equesbelli has painted amazing painting, all of them inspired by Assassin’s Creed and all of them beautiful. There are five of them insofar.
And that’s all for now!
