Killer Assassin’s Creed III details
Details about Assassin’s Creed III have been popping out of the shadows constantly the past few days. To make it easy to keep up on the info about game I’ve put all the information that I know of in one helpful little article for you. So plug yourself into the Animus and learn a little about the future of Ubisoft’s biggest title.
America in 1777. The colonies are gripped in the Revolutionary War with the English. The latest assassin seems to have sided with the American rebels.
Assassin’s Creed III features a brand new assassin named Conner. Conner has an English father and a Native American mother. Conner was raised among his mother’s Mohawk tribe. Conner is in the same assassin order as previous protagonists, but it has not yet been explained how they came to be present in the Americas.
Desmond will be returning as the protagonist during present day. Desmond is no longer in a coma and will experience the memories of Conner through the Animus 3.0. (Those other two are so outdated.)
Secondary Characters (also known as “Cool Dudes from History”)
During Conner’s dirty deeds he will run into famous figures such as George Washington, Benjamin Franklin, and Charles Lee. Washington is said to be an important part of the story, while Franklin will play a role in designing new gadgets for Conner. I will be very surprised if this game doesn’t inspire the next generation of American historians.
The new game world takes place in the American frontier between New York and Boston. Locations that can be explored include Lexington, Concord, and Conner’s Mohawk hometown. The game world of Assassin’s Creed III is touted to be 1.5 times the size of Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood. The game world looks to have a large amount of tree platforming in wooded areas. Both parkour enthusiasts and arborists agree that this is awesome. The world will feature weather effects for both summer and winter.
- Platforming on trees and buildings will be possible.
- Animals can be hunted and skinned.
- Animal skins can be sold for money.
- Money, in turn, can be used to buy weapons and property like in previous Assassin’s Creed titles.
- Quests will be initiated by joining clubs. So far, at least a hunting club has been confirmed.
- Thankfully, no tower defense elements like those in Assassin’s Creed Revelations will be appearing.
- Multiplayer has not yet been confirmed.
A March 5 Ubisoft press release stated Assassin’s Creed III is “the largest project in Ubisoft’s history” with a development time of “over three years and twice the production capacity of any previous Ubisoft game.”
