I'll see that and raise the demo reel from the last E3:


Should be interesting to see how this develops, especially given that what core mission string there is, is overlaid with lots of 'emergent' opportunities presented not only by the world, but by other players. One can easily imagine a scenario where one player is taking on the hit presented at E3... but at the same time, at least one other is playing guardian angel for the HVT...

"Another volley...!"
 
And here we have 'dueling trailers', after a fashion. First, this bit of (PS4) gameplay...


...then, an in-universe after-action report on that string of events:

Damn this game is hyped! GTA where you can hack stuff >_<

It's essentially Assassin's Creed meets GTA meets Person of Interest. And it looks to be fucking awesome.

I can't wait for 2014. Looks like I'm going to have to buy a new rig a year early. (Or rather, get a better graphics card, since if my rig fits the Crysis 3 recommended specs save graphics card, then then it should be able to play this.)

On which note, I'd be quite amused if there were alternate outfits for Aiden inspired by Assassin's Creed (Ubisoft did this recently with Ghost Recon Online; you can see the relevent concept art here, and quite a few fanartists have tried their hand at creating modern interpreations of the distinctive robes)... or taken directly from said games (Ezio's dark-grey outfit from AC: Revelations - seen here in figure form - would 'fit' best).

Agreed. As to a modern outfit, I think Desmond's hoodie and jeans are pretty much it, though maybe a white badass longcoat of some sort would also be fine. It would be interesting and a nice touch if we could choose alternate appearances and outfits for Aiden.

Also I predict sooner or later someone is going to mod that game to feature the Major, within a year or so of launch. :p

Surprised no body made this thread yet

Dynamic tag cannot be rendered. (PrintableThread)

Firefly00 2013-04-29 17:33

Alert! Alert!
 
Infodump inbound!

Zero Refuge!

The 'holiday 2013' release window is confirmed... and narrowed to 19 November. Relevant articles follow:
On a lighter note, we have this piece of 'what if?' fan art:

Dynamic tag cannot be rendered. (PrintableThread)
Which, I think, would be a very amusing example of cross-pollination... those characters would be very rare random encounters (see: Prof. Genki in Saints Row: The Third)

kenjiharima 2013-04-29 19:15

^LOL! Like that fan art.

Firefly00 2013-04-29 20:26

And, apparently, Ubisoft isn't afraid to toss in a nod here to Chicago's past, if this image of the Uplay rewards (as distinct from the 'Uplay Exclusive' retail package) is any indication:


kenjiharima 2013-04-30 03:40

^looks like a Darkman DLC.

Wild Goose 2013-05-03 01:58

Actually, the thread is here. I'll ask the mods to merge them.

Firefly00 2013-05-03 16:55

Now on deck: the first dev diary...


...and this CNET preview.

Now on deck: approximately fifteen minutes of exploring the game's open world.


Like Far Cry 3 and the Assassin's Creed games, each area of the world - in this case, Chicago - has key areas you have to compromise to unlock the opportunities waiting therein. Here, you have to install a backdoor in the local ctOS server farm.

Shown next is the nuts and bolts of vigilantism: finding a potential victim, waiting for the attacker(s) to show themselves, then acting. You can take your cues from Batman's playbook, or maybe you've chosen Punisher as a role model - either choice has implications for how the city as a whole views your actions... being the primary suspect in a crime, for instance, comes back to bite when Aiden visits a gun store to resupply.

After evading the police search before an actual pursuit gets underway, next on deck is a look at how multiplayer works. Shade of Assassin's Creed are to be had here - that other player appears in your world as one of the many NPCs, and once you're found their approxmiate location, you still have to get a firm lock on them, either eyes-on or by taking advantage of any cameras handy.

Things I'm still wondering about:
  • will we have weapon modifications? Nothing as eleborate as, say, Army of Two, but something like what Ubisoft offered in SC: Conviction would be welcome... for example, stealthy players might want to invest in suppressors and subsonic ammunition for their pistols...
  • the availability of non-lethal options. For example, maybe I'd prefer to simply render an opponent unconscious as opposed to dead (Blacklist and SC: Blacklist give players the option) - maybe my take on Aiden is more Batman than Punisher, of the guards happen to have deadman switches (Batman: AA players will remember an area where the inmates had to be avoided entirely because of their possession of such devices - setting one off would prompt another to kill the hostages). Can we, for instance, get tranquilizer guns (see: MGS3)? Kinetic-stun 'beanbag' shells for the shotgun?
  • are there safehouses? While these are likely not customizable, they could still take a page from their Saints Row siblings in offering a place for Aiden to lay up, change appearance (remember, there are two alternates available via Uplay, and presumably others out there that can be earned) and customize his weapon loadout.

Robbing Poor People Simulator. :heh:

Oh my god, this is freaking Person of Interest. DO WANT FUCK YES. In which case, my approach is going to be Reese instead of Batman or Punisher - primarily nonlethal, unless the perp escalates, in which case it's time to show him how Sam Colt made all men equal. (Even if my weapon was made in Switzerland.) Wonder if they'll do something like Person of Interest: there's a POI who'll be involved in a violent crime, but until it goes down, you don't know if it's a victim or a perp (or, as has been in several cases, both).

* Yeah, I'm hoping for the Conviction customisation, though Blacklist wasn't too bad either. I recall from one of the early demos that Aiden has a folding ASP baton, so that would work for less lethal.
* OH HELL YES BEANBAG ROUNDS. Loved them to bits in SWAT 4. More ranged nonlethal options would be very welcome.

Given the way the game world works, you could in fact encounter two overlapping crimes in progress where one person does in fact fill both roles (perpetrator of one, planned victim of the other).

With that said, I'll just leave this little gift from Nippon here...

Very nice, tempted to actually fight for a day one PS4 to play this...
