  • Abstergo seems to own quite the number of Hidden Blades. How many Assassins d'you think they killed for them? In the comics it's revealed they make their own too, but these are clearly ancient, so they're taken from slain Assassins.
  • Callum seems to have some kind of black object at the back of his neck/skull. Considering the rest of his haircut, that's not just his hair.
  • New Animus allows full-body motion in a chamber. Likely useful to train someone's physical body rather than just their mental muscle memory. You can Sync with an ancestor all you like, if you're not physically fit enough to do their movements, you won't be able to do them in the real world. Desmond might've been pretty fit at the time of AC1-3. As a contrast, Callum's been in jail for a long time before he gets in an Animus.
  • 0:51 - Look in the far distance, at the left. We see Rebecca's Animus 2.0 / Baby. Abstergo must have recovered it from the Grand Temple.
  • We see an Abstergo Guard force patrolling menacingly down a hallway, no doubt to find Callum and the other Animus Subjects held captive at Abstergo.
  • We also see Callum leading some kind of rebellion or escape attempt against Abstergo, likely with the help of the other Animus subjects as well.
  • Crunchy Spanish Inquisition, cool cocky female Assassin. Her Hidden Blades are two-pronged, and she has nice combat animations. Nail those Counters, girl~!
  • "We work in the dark... To serve the light. We are Assassins."
  • 120ft Leap of Faith done by Damien Walters with no ropes or other shenanigans. Just the human body and a whole lotta faith in one's self.

I am happy.

"12 things we learned on the ASSASSIN'S CREED set"
http://nerdist.com/12-things-we-learned-on-the-assassins-creed-set/

1. IT’S ALL ABOUT SEEING BACK IN TIME THROUGH YOUR DNA
2. MICHAEL FASSBENDER PLAYS 2 VERY DIFFERENT ORIGINAL CHARACTERS
3. THE ANIMUS IS WAY DIFFERENT THAN THE GAME
4. THE FILM TAKES PLACE IN THE SAME UNIVERSE AS THE VIDEO GAMES
5. THERE WILL BE EAGLE VISION
6. IT’S LIKE A MORE MURDERY STAR WARS
7. THE FIGHTS PACK A PUNCH (AND A KICK, AND ANOTHER PUNCH, AND PARKOUR…)
8. THERE ARE EASTER EGGS GALORE
9. THIS IS THE LONGEST SHOOT OF KURZEL’S CAREER
10. THERE'S NOT AS MUCH GREEN SCREEN AS YOU'D EXPECT
11. THEY ALL PLAYED THE GAME TO PREPARE FOR THE MOVIE
12. [a joke/fake] YOU HAVE TO BE AN ACTIVE UPLAY USER TO WATCH THE MOVIE.

Click through to the full article for quite the enjoyable, meaty read. I recommend it.

If that robo-arm thing is what I think it is (a way to simulate a full range of movement and sense of falling/space to move around while the subject is in the animus) then I think that's really cool. It reinforces the idea that the bleeding effect could be a thing when the animus user is actually physically performing the actions. Helps step away from the increasing sense that the animus is just an ordinary game console or something.

the posts a bit guy

Are we going to have to sign into Uplay before being admitted to the movie theater?

Season pass for the female Assassin's subplot, a Spanish halberd, and an Altair skin for Fassbender.

I hope he puts on Altair's skin on Buffalo Bill style.

Buffalo Bill sounded familiar, and I just remembered where it was from. Patrick's LOLWUT?
