Another great game announced at E3 2012 was Assassins Creed. The first two games from this franchise have been an automatic hit with many gamers. This has been one of the most anticipated games of 2012. This is another done of Ubisoft’s games.
The characters name in AC III is Connor Kenway but he likes to be known as Ratonhnhaké:ton. The looks of the character seem to be similar but still there are some new and exciting changes to this game.
There are new landscapes such as snow covered lands. Instead of jumping from building to building you jump from tree to tree and swing around until you get to where you want. You can also climb rocks to get into fortresses and slide down snowy hills.
Now you don’t only have to worry about your enemies but you have to watch out for deadly animals which may spring out from nowhere. You can also go on horseback if Connor’s legs are too tired after all of the killing you are going to make him do. You also have new enemies. You are fighting the English Red-coats.
Also in games you usually run out of map very quickly, not anymore. Any redcoats who escape your grasp will run back to the settlement and try to bring reinforcements but can you kill the others and get to the runner and kill him before he gets home ?
He has new weapons like his bow and arrow as well as the trusty axe. Instead of stopping to kill someone you can simply run past them and kill them when you are focused on killing the man you need to.
He also has his own ship now to take part in the naval battles. But it won’t all be plain sailing as the weather will change just as it does in real life. If you disable the enemy ship you can board it and overtake it with your own axe and bow.
Where ever the War of Independence went you will see Connor there, from Boston to New York. You can also visit the Caribbean if you want to.
When you walk into settlements instead of the usual citizens walking around aimlessly now in this game they are actually working and it actually looks like a proper genuine village.
I cannot wait for this game to come out from what I see here I think it will be a great game.
This game is out on 30th October on XBox 360, Playstation 3 and PC. It will also launch on the Wii U when it is released. I cannot wait to actually see this game and use it myself.
