At the end of the video, someone says to Connor: Even those men who you sought to save have turn their pacts on you, yet you fight, you resist, why?
And Connor says: Because no one else will!
Epic much? So Connor inherits his robes from Achilles......just like Ezio inherited Giovanni's. It appears we'll have 3 versions of Connor: A child (when his villiage is destroyed) A teenager (Training on the home-stead) An adult (the assassin we know he is) Man......that voice acting. Also, I have come to the conclusion that we can put on/ take off Connor's hood at any given time. ThatRandomUser ~Lair of Randomness (Enter at own risk) 17:26, October 4, 2012 (UTC)
It's exactly the same except they removed one particuliar scene of Connor Killing a Bunch of Coats(didn't take notice on the color) along the way to that rock during the "Because no one else will" qoute220.127.116.11 06:22, October 5, 2012 (UTC)
Correction: Even those men who you sought to save have turn their backs on you, yet you fight, you resist, why?...Because no one else will! ~ Achilles to Connor Kenway. --ACsenior (talk) 18:55, October 4, 2012 (UTC)
Its just now that im realizing the real spirit Ubisoft has put into this game. Its hard to make a game on an emotional level, Ubisoft almost made it with Ezios story, and I think that this time they nailed it. 18.104.22.168 19:12, October 4, 2012 (UTC)
This trailer gave me chills. Especially when Connor replies to Achilles at the end. Because no one else will! UbiSoft has done an amazing job with this game, I can already tell. --Jjacobmartinn (talk) 19:17, October 4, 2012 (UTC)
- Uh, no it wasn't. That was clearly Connor's voice. Maybe you should go watch it again. --Jjacobmartinn (talk) 19:28, October 4, 2012 (UTC)
I have watched it maybe 10-15 times before you asked so yes i believe it's Achilles that awsered(bad English) his own question and that voice is old. Watch the Boston secuese(bad English) 6 playtrough and you will hear how Connor's voice is when he is angry.--ACsenior (talk) 19:39, October 4, 2012 (UTC)
- No, it is not Achilles answering his own question. Why would he ask Connor a question like that to answer it himself. His voice, and the voice that CONNOR replies with sound completely different. Like I said before, watch the trailer again. It's Connor's voice. --Jjacobmartinn (talk) 19:47, October 4, 2012 (UTC)
- No, there's no need to find out in the game. We know it's Connor's voice, not Achilles'. I've watched every video on AC3, and I know how Connor's voice sounds. Does your angry voice change depending on how angry you are? Mine certainly does. And so does Connor's apparently. It isn't Achilles, Senior. Sorry. --Jjacobmartinn (talk) 20:00, October 4, 2012 (UTC)
- And also, and I don't mean this offensively, but you can't really be a judge on tone and voice changing if you can't speak or type it fluently. Again, I'm not trying to be offensive or rude. I wouldn't be able to do the same with Arabic or Italian, because I'm not fluent enough to know. --Jjacobmartinn (talk) 20:05, October 4, 2012 (UTC)
I've realized most of the supposed fans that comment on YouTube don't even know what makes a good Assassin's Creed game. One user found it appropriate to say that the story didn't move him as much as Ezio's did. PS: ACSenior, that was Connor that responded to Achilles question, if Connor didn't, then the question should have been rhetorical. Supreme Master AssassinIL Mentori 19:41, October 4, 2012 (UTC)
Ezio's story was sad: he lost his father and brothers, and was forced to become an Assassin, but we lost sight of that in Brotherhood and Revelations because he no longer fought to avenge them. Plus, Cristina, the love of his life, died in his arms, which is also pretty sad. However, Connor's village is burned to the ground, and his family is seemingly wiped out, thus making him an instant orphan because of the hatred of people who came from a foreign land. His freedom and peaceful way of life was taken from him, as was Ezio's..... I'm not saying one was worse than the other; both stories are tragic...I'm rambling right now, but I'm moved more by Connor's story because Native Americans as a whole were dealt a bad hand when colonists started taking over America. His life is just one instance of a sad history of a beautiful people. I know I'm talking like Connor is real, but still...I'm sure there were many "Connors" who experienced similar things. TranquilTempestBonjour! 20:36, October 4, 2012 (UTC)
Ezio's situation was different from Connor's... so we can't really say that one is worse than the other. I have to admit, Connor is very honorable and self righteous... a quality neither Assassin before him actually had. Supreme Master AssassinIL Mentori 21:11, October 4, 2012 (UTC)
Ok, this is just plain ridiculous. Now I won't even be able to sleep till October 30. I had just gotten used to not being able to think clearly, now no sleep? That's a problem because I'm not going to sleep once I get the game, either!The Dark Knight (talk) 21:24, October 4, 2012 (UTC)
Am I the only one thinking that I've seen this story scenario before? Our young hero lives a nice, peaceful life with family and friends. Suddenly, an unforseen evil from another place comes and screws everything up, forcing our young hero to witness the death and suffering of everyone close to him. This trauma causes our hero to grow up, training with a mentor, fueled by rage and the desire to make everything right again. Not just for himself, but, for everyone. Why? Because no one else will.
I don't know why, but Connor's story gives me serious Deja Vu of a show I used to watch but can't remember. However, I haven't seen an epic story like this since my childhood, so that just makes Connor and AC3 10 times as epic as they already were for me :D ZBlue0 (talk) 21:58, October 4, 2012 (UTC)
I've seen a TV show or a movie similar to this too, but I can't put my finger on it just yet....It's right in the front in my head but I can't get the name. Argh, this is frustrating. AC III reminds me of an epic tale of the birth of a hero of some sort, especially adding the twist about his allies betraying him. Anyway, Ezio and Connor's stories are different in many ways, but Connor seems to be looking at the bigger picture. Yes, his people are a part of the equation, but he's taken himself out of it to serve the cause of justice, not the Assassins, even though he is an Assassin. He seems to make up his own mind about what's right and what's wrong, rather than basing it on Assassin beliefs, which can be kind of twisted. TranquilTempestBonjour! 22:07, October 4, 2012 (UTC)
I find Connor's situation very similar to Heracles/Hercules' situation in which he was born to become a Great Olympian God but he is cast out of Olympus by his own uncle, Hades because it is foretold by the Three Fates to Hades that Hercules will rise up against him when he tries to take over Olympus and ultimately defeat him. Plus his love interest seemingly betrays him. Not saying they are the same scenarios but very similar. Hercules starts training as a teen and so does Connor. Supreme Master AssassinIL Mentori 22:11, October 4, 2012 (UTC)
His allies betraying? I wonder if one of them is a Templar? I think they said like Ezio, Tragedy will drive Connor into the Assassin Order. I believe Connor´s mother dies in that fire. Kryptonian25 (talk) 22:14, October 4, 2012 (UTC)
Undertaker, I also thought it was similar to AC2 the first time I saw the trailer, but, like Tranquil said, Ezio's story and Connor's story are different in many ways. ZBlue0 (talk) 22:43, October 4, 2012 (UTC)
Tranquil and ZBlue, the basic plot of the beginning does seem similar to what we've already heard before, but I find that it's not so much the basic plot that counts, but rather how it is written that matters. Whether Connor's journey will sound really cheesy or incredibly epic will depend on the strength of the narrative and Corey May's skill as a writer. Chrispy9229 (talk) 22:59, October 4, 2012 (UTC)
It's very different from Ezio's story in some ways. Connor is orphaned as a boy. Although he was orphaned that doesn't mean that there aren't other natives to raise and help him. He does have some friends as seen in that homestead mission. I can't wait to find out how much of his childhood are we playing, when he meets the assassin. and a conner child version skin for assassinating people as a tot.

Ubi wasn't kidding when they said we'd be seeing Connor in his early years!! Lol, he lookes 6. Nawww =] But so sad when the village burnt. I could image screams for Mom and Dad =\ So now we know Achellis (sorry, can't spell it) didn't recruit Connor, but Connor was told about him. 26 days ^_^ (Harlan1500 (talk) 23:30, October 4, 2012 (UTC))
On the egm daily post for this, it mentions a 'north west Indian war DLC' -> http://www.egmnow.com/articles/news/new-assassins-creed-3-trailer-tells-connor-kenways-sad-story/ I just wanted to know if this had been confirmed, or if it's a leak, since the only DLC that I've heard about for AC3 is the Tyranny of King Washington. 22.214.171.124 01:59, October 5, 2012 (UTC)
Well, we know that the Tyranny of King Washington is going to be split up into three parts (I think it's three, anyway), and according to the egmnow article I posted up there (that was me, by the way, I've just created an account to make things easier) there's also going to be a North West Indian War DLC. If this is a leak and not a mistake, that's at least four (counting each Tyranny part as a seperate download), and for all we know, all the DLC's might be split up into more than one part. Also, does anybody know whether or not the Indian War is a leak, or a mistake? I haven't seen it anywhere else, so I'm not sure. Newsonce97 (talk) 02:52, October 5, 2012 (UTC)
Wow I got chills watching the trailer. I honestly can't wait.
actually Harlan connor's dad was british so odds are he wasn't in the mohawk village.he might still be dead,but he's probably alive in england.or a redcoat you assassinate.isn't that a thought to think about?and if you meant general screams for moms and dads,then nevermind.Assassin of 81 (talk) 15:08, October 5, 2012 (UTC)
I did mean general calls for Mom's and Dad's but that is something to think about - but I highly doubt Connor will have to kill his own Father. I also don't think that Connor's father will abandoned him. I wouldn't leave my son, but who knows. It could of been the times. I was reading up on Native American tribes and the Cherokee hold children with English father's in very high respect. They believed that the childs father could teach the kid the ways of the "English man" and in most cases a boy with an English Father was Chief later in his life. (Harlan1500 (talk) 22:48, October 5, 2012 (UTC))
I know there's a big debate about the final words of the trailer and who said them and what not, but my favorite part of the trailer is when Achilles says to Connor, "In your haste to save the world, be sure you don't destroy it." I just think that really tells you a lot about Connor as a person. He has a good sense of what is right and what is wrong, but he's not as wise as old Achilles. He may rush into things, which might get him into some trouble at some point. The Dark Knight (talk) 02:20, October 6, 2012 (UTC)
- It shouldn't even be a debate. Anyone who can hear correctly would be able to tell that Connor is answering Achilles' question. --Jjacobmartinn (talk) 05:38, October 6, 2012 (UTC)
- I agree with The Dark Knight; Connor thinks he knows what he's doing all the time, but the older man is trying to guide his passion and anger so that he doesn't do something he'll regret. Has anyone noticed how similar Connor and Aveline are to each other? Connor has a clear stand of what's right and what's wrong, Aveline sees the difference between enslavement (wrong) and freedom (right), Connor seems impulsive and quick to act despite what his mentor says and Aveline bumps heads with her mentor because she acts without consulting him. They have similar attitudes and personalities--all about getting things done, although we haven't seen how much or how little passion Aveline has yet, but her wiki page says she takes a vehement stand against slavery, so there you go. They meet somewhere in the North in Liberation, and it looks like they both end up going to the same area in Mexico. I think we'll see their relationship come to life and blossom over time between the two games, kind of like a, "Hey, I remember you" kind of thing in the beginning, and then eventually they befriend one another and after that, who knows? Connor's story just has a heavier impact on Desmond's life. TranquilTempestBonjour! 06:05, October 6, 2012 (UTC)
- I never actually took notice of the psychological similarities but it seems a fair analysis considering all things binary. Supreme Master AssassinIL Mentori 06:16, October 6, 2012 (UTC)
- You know, if you didn't say Aveline I wouldve thought you were talking about Desmond. He strikes me as the rebellious type. ___EnterRandomNamƎ___ YOUR AD HERE 12:22, October 6, 2012 (UTC)
- /Resurrects Forum As you can see in this picture Connor already has his hidden blade before he meets Achilles. Could this mean Haytham (His dad?) left him the hidden blade? ThatRandomUser ~Lair of Randomness (Enter at own risk) 15:50, October 8, 2012 (UTC)
I think one of the first things Achilles does is give Connor a hidden blade, and in the end he will get his robes as a reward.
Above was me2A1G Requiescat in pace 17:54, October 8, 2012 (UTC)
I like Achilles, I always like the mentor that cautions the young hero's impulsiveness. I see this as a journey for Connor he starts young and brash like Altair and Ezio before but as he grows older he sees the world in a wiser way. Like Achilles said to Connor. Let me tell you something Connor, life is not a fairy tail and there are no happy endings! According to a developer Connor is an idealistc while Achilles is cynical and reserved. Kryptonian25 (talk) 18:18, October 8, 2012 (UTC)
Maybe it was broken when he first got it so he didn't know what to do with it. And then Achilles told Connor to give it to
Leonardo someone so it can be fixed. ___EnterRandomNamƎ___ YOUR AD HERE 18:28, October 8, 2012 (UTC)
If you pay real close attention and pause it at 1:45, Connor goes into an abandoned house with what looks like a stuffed alligator, as in taxidermy, and it's dark inside. As far as I know, there are no gators in Boston or New York...A swamp area, maybe? The Bayou?
