Say whaaaaat? This alternative reality will somehow be canon to the story of Assassin's Creed III?

What?

... What?

What?



Seems that Connor isn't the only one drinking hallucinogenic herbal tea. >_

So basically this DLC will be like Connor being in a "dream" and things playing differently? I'm looking forward as to how they are going to tie this whole story into the main canon.

"Clear cut ending"
I smell BS. There is never clear cut endings in AC.

The first thing I thought was what Juno said about how they searched through many possibilities to try and find a solution to stop the end of the world. Perhaps this is one of their possibilities?
As for Connor being completely aware that he's in two of these possibilities, I have no clue but who cares he strips down and bares chest.
S'all good.

I'm uhhh...just gonna count it as a major Animus memory glitch as there have been quite very many during Ezio's trilogy. (like Subject 16's glitches that unlock the memory of Adam/Eve in AC2). It's probably like one of those expansions that are so far off the main game's theme, like Infamous 2's Festival of Blood or RDR's Undead Nightmare.

Hah, I'm so glad I'm done playing Assassin's Creed, the storyline is too old and boring now[wow a hook blade and parachute! wow a pistol and climbing the same trees ALL GAME! wow ANOTHER mystery that ends with useless suspense and yet again, ANOTHER 'plot twist']. They should have ended the series a few games ago, but no, they are still just dragging it through the streets until there's nothing left to drag at all.. Don't get me wrong, the AC-game play is really fun[for a little while until you realize you've been doing the same things over and over and over] and the weapon-combat system is one of the best I've seen in any video game but eventually the story must actually end and stay that way.

Ok first off ALL games are repetitive they take on the same aspect of the shampoo bottle (lather,rinse and repeat.) it doesn't matter what genera of game you're playing is always the same. to say this game is laden with it is pointless hell WoW has more of that then any other game. I'm interested to see how this new DLC plays out and how Ubisoft intends to make this matter.

While I respect and understand the opinion that Ubisoft are "milking" the franchise and the quality of the games has got worse/more predictable etc. I still hold the thought that there is absolutely nothing stopping people from, you know, not playing the games. If the story is all you're concerned with then read up on it once the game is released? I'm getting pretty tired of the same bullshit every time a news article is posted about Assassin's Creed and how they should have stopped it after ACII or how the game was buggy as hell or how predictable it is, etc. We get it already haha. Personal opinion and whatnot though, so there isn't anything stopping you from wasting your money and being disappointed yet again I suppose =P

Somehow, this doesn't appeal to me anymore ever since what happened in AC3's story. What's worse is after they killed off Lucy, they told us that she was working for the templars all along. WTH? Lastly, they killed off...

That was going to happen regardless, I'm just disappointed with the way they did it.

I think this sounds like they're creating alternate universe stories like what Marvel & DC comics always do. And how is this CANON to the story?

Because I don't think it takes place in a literal alternate reality.

Do you mean were both realities are both one and the same just with differing outcomes?

Maybe this is all the same Reality because George Washington has a Apple of eden like the first two villains in ac1 and ac2 shaun said in AC3 Connor might not be involved in George Washington having a Apple of Eden but what if he was.George Washington might have Changed Reality with the Apple and Connor Escaped it because in Ac3 he gets a piece of Eden Ring maybe that Protected Connor from the Effects of the Reality Changing.

No, not all video games are same.. yes, they have the same ultimate goals[gain power, get revenge, save someone or the world] but DEFINITELY not the same games.

At least when WoW drops a new DLC or game, it has a brand new epic storyline backed with tons and tons of things to do. But AC has basically become COD, a re-skinning of the previous game with a few new features and weapons thrown in there. Dev.'s need to actually sit down and think of better plot lines, think of ways to better the game as a whole before slappin a price tag on it and carting it out to stores.

Look at Halo, each game has been significantly different for better or for worse at least they make the effort to try something new[graphics, gameplay, features removed and added], I mean they even changed the multiplayers which purely defines the Halo series. Or look at basic games like Tekken, they took a generic side-scroll fighting game to new heights with an adventure mode, combo creater, and made many vast, interactive boards to fight on, these Dev.'s actually try to improve their games and make way for new things to evolve in the storylines. Assassin's Creed has basically had the same shit since AC2, same exact storyline, same characters[besides Desmond's ancestors], same questions.

Idk, maybe I'm mad because I spent 300+ dollars on AC's games only to play the same game as before and still NEVER have my questions answered. The beginning storyline and climbing buildings was pretty much the whole reason why I picked up AC1[but then I found out that the sword-fighting/counters was fking amazing] but now that stuff has gotten really old TO ME[obviously this is my opinion because many still enjoy and love the games].
