i already read it. basically, they've taken players' complaints about the first one and made improvements while keeping everything else intact. for instance, no more repetitive pickpocket or eavesdropping missions; there are now 16 varieties instead of 4. there are at least 9 weapons now as well, so fighting should remain fresh. overall, there are a lot of nice additions, and i can't see this game being anything but better.
purely speculation on my part, but i believe the third one will have you play as Desmond. if you know the ending of the first game, you'd know something similar is likely to occur for this one, so by the third he will be prepared to take his place as an Assassin in modern times.
His story will most likely be expanded upon and the exploration bits with him will be deeper so you can find out a bit more about who abducted you in the first. I didn't find them necessary though..they could have been done in cutscenes but i suppose it would have taken away a bit of the interest.
well ill be getting the first one again just to refresh my memory of the events and such. annoyed that i missed the deal for it on steam.
got my hands on AC today and was quickly reminded that desmond was an assassin so that clears that up. If i remember correctly the woman miss stillman was undercover with the guys that kidnapped him. she was actually helping someone else...i presume your assassin organisation.
