‘It’s here, it’s here, the Assassin’s Creed 3 trailer is finally here!’
So excited that I’m going to incite the insanity even more by unleashing an entire host of Assassin’s Creed 3 media – an official trailer from Ubisoft and more leaked screenshots, plus I’ve got the skinny on the brand new assassin that everyone wants to be friends with (we also maybe should be scared of him, in equal parts though!).
Click ‘Continue Reading’ to see the new Assassin’s Creed 3 trailer (plus lots of other juicy AC3 stuff).
What is the new Assassin’s Creed 3 assassin called?
The new guy is called Ratohnhaké:ton but he shortens it to Connor.
Connor is of English and Native American descent, with his father being English and his mother being Native American – he was raised in the Mohawk tribe.
What will Assassin’s Creed 3 look like?
Luckily for us, Ubisoft have developed an entirely new engine, called the Anvil Engine which will allow us to experience the entire cycle of seasons (as seen in the screenshots, further down the page) as well as being able to witness large scale battles of 1,000 soldiers.
On top of this, there’s also expected to be a huge area of countryside called ‘the Frontier’, which Ubisoft say is 1.5 bigger than Rome, which we saw in Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood. – Fast travel is also back (go figure).
What will you be able to do in Assassin’s Creed 3?
As a result of those new-fangled seasons, Ratohnhaké:ton/Connor will be able to explore brand spanking new areas on account of rivers freezing over and such. This brisk weather will also have a serious impact on guards, meaning that they’ll become more sluggish and careful about their movements in the snow, making them easier to evade.
Speaking of evasion, tree climbing is now in, making us far less likely to give them bark examinations when we walk into them, as was the case with the previous AC games. Connor also has the nifty ability of leaping over things, sliding under things and of course, jumping through windows (what we’ve always dreamed of!)
Also in : guns.
What is the Assassin’s Creed 3 plot?
As always, it will be a well thought out complex way of things but what we do know is that Connor is relatively chummy with George Washington and Benjamin Franklin, aka, the guys on the money. He was also buds with Charles Lee.
It’s thought that Connor is on the Patriots’ side, but plot rumours suggest that he’ll be forced into killing some of his ‘teammates’ in his quest for freedom.
Now on to the screenshots!
