Moving on with the full, rich storyline established in previous titles with Desmond, Altair and Ezio, Assassin’s Creed 3 is the most ambitious and tantalizing installment to date.
Set in Colonial America during and after the American Revolution, the game will put players in control of a half-English, half-Mohawk man called Ratonhnhake:ton, also conveniently known as Connor, who is pulled into a desperate fight against tyranny when his home is attacked by European colonists.
During the game’s thirty-year span Connor will meet a long list of historical figures such as Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, General Lafayette, King George III and George Washington, and travel to beautifully rendered recreations of 18th century cities like Boston and New York.
And, in a larger way than the previous games, the action in Assassins Creed 3 isn’t confined to the city walls either. Players will be able to explore a vast, untamed frontier, full of animals that, for the first time, can be hunted.
Of course, what with it being the 18th century, Assassin’s Creed 3 will also feature an updated selection of weapons, with the addition of bayonets, bows, tomahawks and rope darts.
Built upon the Anvil Next game engine Assassin’s Creed 3 will deliver an experience that’s bound to more than surpass that of the other games.
On the whole the game looks awesome and here at Sound And Motion we’re wetting ourselves with excitement. It’s just a shame they haven’t dumped the boring modern-day elements.
