Assassin’s Creed 3 Trailer Analysis
Assassin’s Creed 3 Will Feature Hunting
This was the biggest detail to reveal last Friday, as a screenshot highlighted new protagonist – allegedly called Connor – tracking an animal in a snow-covered landscape with bow and arrow in hand.
The video proves that this is the case, spending a chunk of the trailer highlighting a pack of wolves approaching a set of corpses.
Assassin’s Creed 3 Has Dual Wield Combat
With the dual hidden blades, Assassin’s Creed isn’t a series unfamiliar with dual wielding combat. But here Assassin’s Creed 3 will have more direct two hand combat, with Connor seen battling two enemies at once with his (soon to be) trademark Tomahawk and dagger.
This ties in to recent revelations that this axe and dagger set up is important for combat in AC3, meaning it will likely have a greater importance from everything between basic combat and assassinations.
Assassin’s Creed 3 Could Have Large Scale War
Just from watching the trailer, it would be difficult to suggest that Assassin’s Creed 3 will have large scale combat – but combine this with the suggestion that AC3′s updated Anvil engine will be able to handle thousands of soldiers and you’ve got a huge chance.
Also take in to count that Assassin’s Creed 3 is set suring numerous historic battles against large regiments of British and American soldiers - the idea that Connor could be at the forefront of each battle will make for very exciting, large-scale combat.
George Washington Will Feature In Assassin’s Creed 3
Seen towards the end of the video, could this be George Washington? It sounds likely that he is one of the major characters for Assassin’s Creed 3, and this brief glimpse is enough to confirm his apperance.
Assassin’s Creed 3 Release Date Is 31 October 2012
Sticking to the regularly schedule that Ubisoft has often followed with the Assassin’s Creed franchise, Assassin’s Creed 3 is set to release on the 31 October 2012, as stated by the very end of that trailer.
