The power of an eagle will stop Evil Washington.

Is it evil Ben Franklin?

Posted by AssInAss

Haven't you heard, Ben Franklin?

Edited by Humanity

Seems ridiculous but not in a good way

Posted by Rxanadu

I totally thought we were about to be able to play as Ben Franklin in the game. That really bums me out that's not the case.

This is one of the dumbest things I have ever seen, and I mean dumb, not dumb.


Shit is embarrassing.

You can turn into a spirit eagle? Is this for real?

Posted by nickux

I love how batshit insane this is, actually. I'd rather have them go all the way down the crazy path.

The shark has been jumped.

Edited by Oginam

I really appreciate Ubisoft not giving a single fuck about how batshit insane this series gets.

I may actually play 3 now if I can use spirit eagle throughout the campaign. Also, I really hope this means we'll see other kinds of spirit forms in Black Flag. Pirate Shark Assassin. Come on Ubisoft, you know you want to!

Has anyone played this yet? The first part was god awful apart from the cool evil Washington cutscenes. I don't plan on buying any more of these things unless I know it's less shit.

Posted by LordAndrew

According to our wiki, this is canon.

Posted by Animasta

yes, but is it the clone of ben franklin, trying to cheat death?

Posted by von_wemberg

That's true, I haven't seen Ben Franklin before,

Posted by themangalist

I liked AC3, but this dlc series is really spreading those feelings thin.

You turn into a wolf in part 1 looking forward to part 2

Really. A native American character that turns into spirit animals. How original. Then again, when the defining characteristic of the third protagonist in the series is his ethnicity, you really can't ask for much.

Edited by Dark_Lord_Spam

I just want to get aerial assassinations as Ben Franklin in multiplayer.

Ok, new rule: Only Americans are allowed to make batshit crazy stuff about American history. Everyone else clearly sucks at it, and this is possibly the most boring looking alternate history I've ever seen.

I don't even understand what it's supposed to do. Is it some sort of double jump or glide mechanic? Do you just fly around the level like a non-parkouring dumbass, thus negating half the gameplay this series is based on? It's like they took every idea they had for this DLC and implemented it in the worst way possible.

This looks so dumb. It's hilarious. And kind of depressing.

I want to see our founding fathers as vampires

Posted by Jedted

Some people here need to lighten up. This whole DLC is just a crazy "what if" scenario. The past AC games have stayed fairly true to the actual historical timeline so it's nice to see them just all out crazy with this little side-story.

This is kind of a spoiler but in part 1 Connor comments on how "this isn't what happened." Ubisoft pretty clearly set this up as some crazy fever dream so there's no reason to get all up in arms about this DLC.

Posted by RE_Player1

Are people still playing this shit?

Posted by casper_

alright assassins creed i think you might be drunk maybe you should go home.

Edited by Seroth

Some AC3 haters are trying too hard. This DLC is supposed to be ridiculous. In the first part of the DLC, Connor admits that nothing makes sense, since he remembers the events of AC3, but suddenly all this crazy stuff is happening, like his mom suddenly being alive again and all of his patriot "friends" being evil. It's essentially a nonsense nightmare scenario for him, and he acknowledges it.

The developers have admitted that this DLC lets them go crazy with concepts. This allows them to use stuff like the animal powers to change up and ease the gameplay without having to worry about breaking "realism" further. The wolf power from the first part, for example, made stealth more fun.

The only crappy part about this DLC is that it's separated into three different parts. Oh, and the DLC is still super glitchy like the main game. That's also very unfortunate.

This doesn't look very fun

This looks incredibly stupid.

And Family Guy sucks.

Edited by gregoryc

I love the idea of a stupid and ridiculous story as DLC. It doesn't mean much to the story proper, so who cares how terrible this is... If you want more AC3 who are we to tell players not to pay for this and play it.

Well, aren't you just a negative nancy

I played part 1 the other night and the wolf powers were actually pretty cool. It's a shame the DLC is buggy as shit, it's like they used an earlier build for it or something.

I'm enjoying the DLC more than I enjoyed the main game. I didn't like it as much as brotherhood, but it wasn't nearly as bad as all these band-wagoners say it is.

I've noticed, If someone on the bombcast crew says something even slightly negative towards anything, everyone will just automatically pile on. I guess most people need someone to tell them what to think, but come on...

Also, it's not out yet, so no.

Posted by kindgineer

Looks great. I'm enjoying the cynical non-sense most readers are posting as well. I'm pretty sure this kind of content is exactly what people want in their game, but when it finally becomes a reality no one wants to admit it entertains them.

Oh well. Time to finally buy ACIII and beat it so I can partake in this DLC.

Edited by grayfox1210

Ben Franklin doing anything athletic may be more mind boggling to me than transforming into an eagle.

Posted by Colourful_Hippie

@ck1nd: So you haven't played it yet, but you're making assumptions about people who have played it. lol

If you like the mission design in AC 3 then you will like this DLC. I don't and this DLC is more of that but with a broken special ability which feels like it's there to just let you fast track the poor gameplay.

@spicyrichter: I didn't check the date, just figured this was a "launch trailer" esque thing.

Posted by Seroth

Just finished this DLC. It was pretty cool. I didn't bother doing much exploring and just stuck to the story missions for fear of bugging out my weapons like with the last DLC. It's just as buggy as anything else AC3.

The animal spirit journey in this one is way less annoying than the wolf one. The eagle power is pretty nifty, letting you pretty much teleport anywhere in the environment. Sure, it trivializes the traversal mechanics, but that's kind of the point of these animal powers. I can see this being fun to use in the frontier, but I think they may restrict you to just playing in Boston, which is kind of a bummer.

There's a pretty funny scene with Connor playing checkers in a tavern. Let's just say they take the term "rage quit" quite literally.

It would be really cool, if after this story is finished, they let you take the animal powers into the main game. But having to deal with the crappy weapon switching system would make it less fun.

Washington dual-wielding flintlocks?

Sold.

Posted by Dan_CiTi

I had a really good time with AC3, but I'll probably wait on this DLC until after it is all out and done with.

Posted by Kitnighty

Confirmed- Benjamin Franklin is the new Assassin.

George was such a dick head back then.

Posted by Enigma777

I can't believe how quickly they managed to ruin a cool concept like evil George Washington.

Oh yeah more white people are evil crap!

Posted by Sjupp

How is this any dumber than the campaign?

Posted by vikingdeath1

Where AC3 left me feeling sour (not to mention part one of this DLC series) This new part has fun enough gameplay to keep me interested. That eagle power is kinda cool and is acquired almost immediately, unlike the Wolf power.
