Assassin’s Creed III World Gameplay Premiere
Ubisoft promised that we would get to see the first Assassin’s Creed III gameplay footage if they received enough “Likes” on their Facebook page, and now since they have, here is the footage! It is fucking great too.
There is a lot to take in here, one of the first things you may likely notice in the trailer is that Assassin’s Creed III looks different from its predecessors thanks to a new and improved engine, which Ubisoft is calling “AnvilNext.”
Said engine allows for some very impressive animations, which you’ll see for yourself in the Assassin’s Creed III trailer. The protagonist, Connor, can be seen dashing fluidly into a window, over a table, and out another window. For me, this is probably the best part in the trailer.
We also get to see a few of the kill moves Connor will be using to dispatch his enemies in Assassin’s Creed III, and it looks to be as brutal as ever–which is a good thing, I’d say. Not a whole lot of actual combat is shown, however, so we’ll have to sit tight for that.
