Desmond's Role Put Into Perspective

Ubisoft is well aware of the lukewarm fan response that Desmond has garnered in the Assassin's Creed series. The game's creative director says that by the end of Assassin's Creed III, those same players could very well change their opinions. If you haven't yet formed an opinion on the character, Ubisoft has released a new trailer that chronicles Desmond's journey throughout the series.

“The story of Assassin’s Creed, AC II, Brotherhood and Revelations was to build Desmond up,” creative director Alex Hutchinson told Edge. “He’s this guy who’s a bit of a nobody when it starts out, and gets new abilities through reliving the lives of his ancestors.

“So we’ve built this guy up over the course of the games, and I really believe that we can pay that off, and in retrospect he’ll be terrific. I don’t think anyone really liked Luke Skywalker in [Star Wars] A New Hope, but by the end of his character arc, this journey that he goes through, makes him amazing.”

One thing's for sure: Players will be able to pick up the game on October 30 and make up their own minds.

  • I think I have been losing sleep over anticipation for this game I am not even kidding. I've had insomnia for the past week and a half and this is the only logical explanation
  • Desmond is great character he evolves every game and there plenty more to add to his story
  • How are they going to have time to include Desmond in the game? All the hyping they're doing of Connor's storyline (which still looks amazing) makes me wonder if Desmond could possibly have more than an hour of storyline, more like the other games.
  • I have always liked Desmond, I just wish that i could have played as him more in the previous games
  •     Maybe they will unveil a huge portion of the game that includes playing as Desmond. I so hope so, it would add a lot of depth to the game (as if it actually needed it with all that's going on with Connor, ha ha)

  • Informative video that why I didn't like it I don't like being edumacated in video games
  • The top picture of Desmond looks like Jeff Goldblum....... idk how to feel about that.

  • Love Desmond and his story I just hope we get to kill someone super like Daniel Craig and Jet Li while also getting to kill Vidic he deserves it.

  • The whole Desmond thing has always irritated me.  So to see wtf is up with his story will be interesting.

  • About time. It feels like the games were being dragged out.

  • "I don’t think anyone really liked Luke Skywalker in [Star Wars] A New Hope..."

    Huh?

  • Wow, they really did a bad job building him up. It was mostly more of the same and he rarely gained new abilities outside of fight, free running, and eagle vision

  • Can't wait..so awesome..only 10 more days..Im glad I have alot of sick/vacation time cause Im gonna need it.

  • God I love this series. The wait for AC3 is so damn hard.

  • I've always liked Desmond

  • This looks really great, but I imagine the series will stop after this (as in, no alternate protagonists and other games would be spin-offs) since no future installments would equate to ending the apocolypse.

    The alternative would be to destroy the Templars, which would DEFINITELY end the series, so Ubisoft probably wouldn't do that.

  • Still have to play the first one. This one looks great though.

  • So gay.
