Assassin’s Creed III first details and screens surface
Introducing Connor, the new protagonist. Climb trees and hunt deers in newest chapter.
We’ve already learnt that Assassin’s Creed III is official, and is about to have its formal revelation on March 5. But, it’s the internet, and leaks are something of a certain if history has taught us anything.
Right out of Game Informer’s April issue, as spilled by the GAF boards, looks to be the Creed’s latest protagonist a British-born Mohawk who is partially of Native American descent, known as Connor. His Native American name is Ratohnhake-ton (pronounced Ra-doon-ha-gay-doo).
Apparently, white colonists burn down Conner’s village; that is where he decides to fight off Templars for he has sworn retribution against tyranny.
Our new assassin will be involved in helping real historical figures from the likes of George Washington and Benjamin Franklin in order to rebel against British colonists across an area that ranges from Boston and New York, during the years between 1753 and 1783. That is over a map 1.5 times the size of Brotherhood’s. Though, Ubisoft insists not all British colonists will be imagined as the evil faction.
Graphically, the game is said to be running on a new version of the Anvil engine, which apparently is proven capable of mad thousand-man wars on screen at once. In addition, the animation system is completely new to the series, allowing for improved facial animations.
That’s a mere excerpt of the tons of new leaked info, and from the looks of it, Assassin’s Creed III already booked its spot as one of those titles you should definitely keep an eye on this year. For me it has grown to be among one of my most anticipated games of 2012. Be sure to check the full scoop over at NeoGAF.
