    I liked the ship mechanic in 3 an I'm interested in the pirate time period, but for the love of god give the series a break.

    More appropriately, what is a stealth assassin gonna do on a boat? In the 1600's? It's not like people are coming and going.

    I'm excited for this game now. The naval combat in ac3 was my favorite feature in the game.

    I think the real question is: is this really Haytham's father, or is this a post-revolution Kenway?

    Damn it. I need to go back to ACIII. But I'm stuck on a section and it's pissing me off.

    Noooo, dude they had so much hype for 3, months and months of coverage and that just came out in Nov/Dec I believe. I See you like rising, now that's a good game. I haven't played AC since the 2nd.

    At least they are not rushing it in between. It's been in production for 2-3 years. They just had a different team working on it.

    Ezio got some in 2. Brotherhood starts off with him getting out of bed after fucking.
    That's kind of what bothers me about this game. Obviously he is related to Haytham, but the Desmond story is done. Are they digging into one of Desmond's relatives now? I'm guessing his Dad is getting strapped into the Animus now that I think about it. I'm also kind of pissed that they never did anything with the ending to Brotherhood where he's told to "find the girl, find Eve." I don't even think they mention it. They only mention why he killed Lucy briefly after exposing it in some lame Revelations DLC. They also say that he's a pirate who was trained by Assassin's in the trailer. Does that mean that he's not an Assassin? How could he be living by the Creed then? Does it take him higher? (Boo). I wasn't a big fan of the boat parts in 3, so I probably will hesitate picking this up even though the trailer got me interested and I want to know how they're handling this. I wouldn't mind a game that ditched the Animus angle and just took place in between Ezio and Haytham. Or a game where you are Haytham, or even as a Templar.

    Is it an EA Game?

    Yes. Good. Not going to get it.

    Looks like I'm saving myself $60+

    It isn't an EA game. It's developed and published by Ubisoft. Ubisoft listens to their customers and abandoned retarded always online drm a year or two ago.

    Yeah, I realized that after I posted.
    Ubisoft still has a one-time activate code, online-connected aspect to XBox games. Still a method of DRM.

    I'm still mired in AC3.
    Besides, I don't think I'm going to bother with a next-gen console, when I'm perfectly happy with Path of Exile.
