Did you do what I did and sneak into a stronghold way above your level and see what you could pull off?

Yeah pretty sure I did that a few times since it's so easy to get an easy kill in then zipline away with that idiotic grappling hook (seriously that made the game far too bloody easy what were they thinking) that you could easily whack thugs four levels higher than you. Another thing: looking forward to playing an Ass Creed that isn't set somewhere I have actually been because they are proper screwy with their geography. Heck, in Syndicate they even took liberties with history; the Whitechapel Station they have in game wasn't completed until a few years after the game is set. Oh and I just felt a little tingly thinking of how they're going to incorporate Egyptian mythology and religion into the storyline, really loving how you can tie their Pieces of Eden in with genuine religious mythology. Plus Egypt is one of the "cradles of civilization" so things could get real interesting with that element of the storyline.

I am hopeful that they make a bit of a step-change in the gameplay, sounds like they plan to. I just wish they would drop the whole Animus bollocks, those sections are so fucking tedious and immersion breaking.

I agree with you though PaladinAl, I love the settings and also love ancient Egypt so will almost certainly bite when this is released. Mrs Snowy and I did a Nile cruise for our honeymoon and I went from being really interested in the period to completely in love with it. There is so much they can use from temples to tombs, pyramids to Petra (see what I did there ;)), but I think that given the scale of Egypt that they will have to take some massive liberties with the geography.

Oh boy can't wait for them to trigger my autism like they did with the positioning of St Paul's in relation to Cannon Street station in Syndicate :lol:
