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 have always wanted to see a more desmond-centric game since i finished the first AC.. not because i didnt find the time-piece stories interesting, but because i've always played each game with one common thing in mind, "these games arent about altair, ezio, or connor.. its desmond" he's the assassin they've crunched out 5 games building up, and i say its time to give desmond his own game.. im buying (lets just call it AC5) and im hoping there are some real developments in the real world..

  • aaaaand, first.. ha..
  • omg!! i want even more the game now i cant seriously cant wait
