Oh My God... This is like a whole new type of assassins creed game, they were always old times and ancient events, but now there are assassins in the American Revolution! Sick! And did i hear that this assassin actually started the stirrings of the revolution? That is a HUGELY creative storyline and you can do a lot of SICK stuff with that! Keep on going Ubisoft!
good interview, he justified the new things that we will see on the next installment. ftw!
That is a great goal, hope it works out.
Anyone else notice the guy in the back is playing Team Fortress 2?
I like just about everything he said. I look forward to seeing where his vision takes the franchise.
Very interesting info, can't wait for the game to come out
This guy sounds cool, hopefully he can take the franchise into new directions.
ohhh can't wait for this game ........ !!!
beta video game title of the decade ..
Sounds pretty good
I'm so glad that they are putting you in a whole new setting. I was getting a little tired of the same thing.
Has anyone noticed they were playing Assassin's Creed 3 on the computers in the background? does anyone have the tech to look at that?
I like Alex. He sounds like a humble nice guy. Creed is awesome by the way.
Can't wait :D
Cool man :D
Awesome, this game couldn't be in better hands.
i love listening to commentary from developers. It's impossible not to get excited about something that the dev team is so passionate and ecstatic about makign. We all know that sometimes their excitement doesn't necessarily translate into the game of the year but much of what I love about gaming stems from getting to see the fruits of the industry's labor. The game industry couldn't exist if the only people excited for gaming were the consumers and not the people making the games. We couldn't possibly get great games without people like Alex who've put in the time and energy into creating these worlds.
GOSH its a relief to know that its the team from AC AND AC2 and well i dont know what to think about ac3 in the moment but well i will need to wait until E3
I love these in-depth interviews of the personalities of the industry. Keep it coming, GI!
