LOL, content blocked by Ubisoft.

P.S. I already have this quest.

I think this is what I am most excited about ACIII.

Posted by Morningstar

Not really, I'll find out when the game comes out.

Stab them in the face with that boat!

Posted by Foggen

Ubisoft should probably stop blocking their own promotional videos. Idiots.

I don't care how fun the boat section is, when I think about what I want from Assassin's Creed, and what I want to see from this game, the naval stuff isn't it. Oh well, I guess it is at least something from the game. I don't want to sound pessimistic about, as I already have, because maybe it is a great addition, and something I should be excited about. I hope this is just one of those great moments that happens early on in the game, and then new stuff happens. I don't want this to be a tower defense type thing again where it doesn't really help the story along, it's just a thing. It doesn't look like it though, it really does look like it's just part of the main game since you can see he's sporting the different costume, which means this probably takes place early on in the game before Connor becomes a real assassin.

What lovely static. Is it just blocked in Europe?

Posted by Nasar7

This is right up my alley. They could make a spin off series about historical naval warfare and I'd be all over that.

@NTM: They have said the majority of the naval stuff is optional.

Posted by TheVampireBoy

It's pronounced and spelled as Leughtenant. I still find it humorous having Americans criticism the English for their own language. Did you know that color is spelled coloUr. British people made the language, I think we have a right to spell words in their proper sound instead of simplifying everything.

Posted by Dampfish

Looking forward to this! :)

Posted by NTM

@deskp: Which means it's like the tower defense, that's too bad. It should have just been an individual memorable moment in the game, and not as you said, something optional that you can do throughout the game. Oh well though.

Edited by MarkWahlberg

All this naval stuff just makes me wish someone would put out a legit pirate game. Maybe this is just them testing the waters on that stuff (pun unintended)?

LANGUAGE WARS, WHEN WILL IT END

Posted by deskp

@NTM: Well the forced mission might be memorable, then the rest optional ;)

If it was just one event in the game they wouldn't have have been showing so much of it in trailers and demos.

Eppulate was worn on the left side. Army captains worn their on the right. Also Leutenant's place was on the left of the battle line.

Edited by ManiacMaysin

Hey, Alex, it's pronounced that way because it's partly a french (the lew) word and British were--historically--not big fans of the French.

Dumbass Ubisoft, won't let me watch what is basically an add for their game...

Video is blocked because of copyrights .... nice

Yo, Assassin on a boat!

Posted by BlueLantern1995

I'm getting this game...the more I read the more I want...

Posted by Bourbon_Warrior

You know what would of been cooler, if Ubisoft didn't show this and left it as a cool surprise in the game, but that never happens anymore always got to show the best parts to sell a game that noone needed selling on.

Video got blocked on YouTube

Posted by Crunchman

I want naval combat in every game.

Posted by NTM

@deskp: Yes, that's true. I know.

Posted by Insectecutor
@TheVampireBoy i'm british and your statements are nonsense. A lot of American English is actually old English or derivations thereof. As for the 'colour' thing that was just Johnson being a francophile, we used to have stupid shit like 'emperour' as well. Webster disagreed with that since the -or form was in common use in Britain and America at the time, so it's actually more pragmatic.

Another example of this horse shit is the whole aluminum/aluminium thing. 'Alumium' was the original name, neither of us is really 'right'.

As for Lieutenant, well that's a french word British people either couldn't read, pronounce, or stomach at the time. Americans pronounce it 'correctly', we corrupted it and fucked it up.

Remember that language evolves over time and to stifle these changes and idiosyncracies would make it dead and dull.

@TheVampireBoy: shut up.

Posted by HellBrendy

Yes. Nothing says "assassin" like Man-O-War.

Posted by dyong

New technologies, new setting, same old forces vying for world domination. What's not to like?

Posted by David_T

Well great. Ubisoft has blocked their own trailer on YouTube. Marketing!

Posted by Geektox

While this explains the mechanics, it doesn't really show it. SLOW-MO! ZOOM! HIGHLIGHTING!

Europeans, you guys aren't missing much.

What's with people watching this on Youtube anyway? Is the Giantbomb player for subscribers only or something?

And yet, when we say "Soccer", a term that was coined in England, you guys get all pissy. We can't win with you people.

@Insectecutor: Bravo!

I commend you on standing up for the truth against your own countrymen rather than just joining in on the classic "I'm not from America so I'm going to trash them any chance I can get cuz it's cool to hate them" thing I see going on at least once in every other forum post.

Hip hip hooray!

I'm going to stay tuned for evermore information on Assassin's Creed III.

Posted by thedj93

how come connor moves in slow motion but his clothes dont?

Posted by TheVampireBoy

@DFSVegas:Soccer? A term coined in England??? You do realize that football was invented by the Romans. Right. It still troubles me how football is classed as one of England's biggest export, which is wrong. Sure we refined the sport, but the Romans were the ones who invented the primary components and rough layout of the game.

I didn't say they invented the sport, I said they coined the term (and take a massive amount of umbrage when it's used). Did you even read what I posted?

Posted by TheVampireBoy

@DFSVegas:I don't. I hate football or soccer or what ever the heck it's called. The players are all over paid and under worked pussies.

Posted by Vlad_Tiberius

Hey, I got an idea for both British and American English: how about all of you people just stop using the word "epic" when you're describing anything for at least 3 or 4 years from now on? Can you please do that? Thank you.

Posted by Lind_L_Taylor

Jesus, really?  I can't believe Assassin's Creed is still active. 

Posted by HerbieBug

This still does nothing to show what actual gameplay of this boat stuff actually looks like. Stitching together various shots willy nilly is not informative. All this shows to me is "this is what we're trying to do with the boat stuff".

Posted by mewarmo990

I was always a bit puzzled by "leftenant" but I suppose it's not much of a criticism when you consider how far off both British and American pronunciations are from the original French.

So, I guess the real question is... can the new guy swim?

As a Canadian I'm more than happy to spell colour with a u but neither colour nor lieutenant are English creations. Let's keep some perspective on what ownership of a language really means.

What is this word "Leughtenant" anyway? It doesn't seem to be in any dictionary.
