I assume the first mission involves jumping over a shark to get to your target.

Places like Philly and Boston have potential. Dunno what NY looked like back then. None of those cities are particularly hilly, nor are there any real historically high landmarks in either of those places. Perhaps someone else can shed light on some places of import in the 13 colonies. *shrug*

Then again, it might not be DURING the revolution, more before/after perhaps? Maybe we'll see another "10 years later" type shift like we did in AC2.

Are they getting rid of the shitty save system? I love the second one but I got about 15 hours in and it fucking rolled me back about 5-6 hours since their cloud save system is fucking gay and I want to murder the people that came up with the concept of not keeping a local save too, FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU-

So I never went back to it and never got the AC2.5 either. Brotherhood or whatever it was.

Keen on this but complaints about saved games will really turn me off.

Honestly it doesn't bother me but I want to be a cool nerd like everyone else so I'm being a sheep and adopting the 'lol J-Rod' mentality.

Seeing as though Gotham by Gaslight got canned, I reckon they should do an AC in Victorian England.

LOADS of potential for awesomeness.

...pretty much just look at the bottom of any Kotaku story for the actual news source,

Another one which isn't really known to consumers is MCV, which talks a lot about the industry itself.

So I guess that trailer answers the "what's parkour for in this one?" question.

Tree climbing.

i have a feeling this will be a BIG open world, with lots of little towns and large bush areas and mountains etc between.

could change the feel a fair bit but still keep the assassins creed feel.

looking forward to more info on it.

The story is that "Conner" is a Mohawk native American who works with the founding fathers to kick out the British because they killed his tribe.

Okay okay.....

Nitpicking a little here, but Native Americans were mostly on the side of the British Empire during the war due to the land rights the British granted them for their help during the Seven Years War, this was one of the major causes of the American revolution as the colonists wanted to expand West and genocide the Native Americans, but British Law would not allow this.... oh also The Mohawk tribe was a very close ally of the British and supported the British during many major battles.

I know nitpicking, but for a "historical" game, you think they would at least get the basics correct.

noticed that "gremio sombras" in the corner quick google found AC links for "El Gremio de las Sombras"
which ended up translating from spanish to "The Guild of Shadows"
guessing thats the name of the game?
