Assassin's Creed III
New Assassin's Creed III Screens Emerge From the Snow
Written Friday, April 13, 2012 By Richard Walker
View author's profile

It's a winter wonderland in these latest screenshots for Assassin's Creed III, which see new hero Connor legging it through the white stuff on the hunt for deer.

There's beautiful trees, far-off snowcapped mountains on the horizon, footsteps in the snow and actually very little assassination or killing going on.

You can check out some of the snowy screenshots below (courtesy of AGB) and ogle all seven in the gallery. Assassin's Creed III is out on October 31st, 2012. Check out our first look preview for the lowdown on ACIII.

I'm pretty sure that your first contract is assassinating that deer.

To all those saying either 'keep' or 'get rid of' multiplayer, you do realise you get a multiplayer character in the freedom edition in the game... thus confirming the game will have multiplayer right?

I love that they're moving away from the Ezio form of the games. I was quite tired of the cities, and am really gonna enjoy leaving the cities former than just a change of scenery. I also love the idea of hunting and gathering as a means for income.

I agree number 15 I have seen games that have online multiplayer but no multiplayer achievements Call of Duty is a great example and if they do have multiplayer achievements there are either easy or are co-op multiplayer achievements such as Black Ops Zombie achievements or Modern Warfare 3 Spec Ops achievements. Come on this series was never about multiplayer just slow it down with trying to make it that way.

@26, I was thinking the same thing. I hope it has a similar theme of wilderness survival. It seems pretty likely since Connor is part Native American. It would play to his strengths well. Ezio was a city boy, Connor is a man of the land.

I'd enjoy hunting with a long bow. I'm amazed such an important weapon hasn't been introduced after four games. I mean really, a gun and bombs before a longbow? That's like #3 on the basic weaponry hierarchy, after "pointy thing" and "heavy thing".

They've already talked about how the game will be set in cities like Boston and New York. So you'll probably be in a city far more than a forest.

Octobers going to be a great month, this, Bioshock Infinite, and Resident Evil 6.

@3 Why? There's a lot of people who enjoy it. It's not taking away any resources from the single player as there's a seperate studio working on the MP. You don't have to play it if you don't want to.

#23 Yes, he is the Q to Connor's James Bond, complete with his witty catchphrase "Oh deer...". I smell a sitcom!

OT: Hopefully this is game of the year material. I want Assassin's Creed to go out with a bang and then finally the series earns the amount of respect it deserves.

Most wanted game of 2012 for me? Oh yes!

It really does look like Ubisoft have seriously gone to work on this. I'm really looking forward to the return of more sequences. Just as long as it doesn't require more f*cking Tetris sequences.

I don't mind there being more Multiplayer as it was really enjoyable on Brotherhood & Revelations & a usual break from the norm of 3rd & 1st person shooter games.

hopefully they fix the bugs that occurred in Revelations, if they wanna keep a yearly release scheduled i hope they consider a 2nd full team to alternate each title like COD does, otherwise were gonna keep having issues like ACR had and its gonna ruin the series potential, cause 2 was pretty much flawless, fixing alot of issues 1 had, but they were able to release Brotherhood the next year without any issues that ACR had

Assuming the game designers read forums like this (which they do), the general concensus here: A.C. MULTIPLAYER SUCKS!!! and basing achievements on it SUCKS WORSE, especially when literally NO ONE is playing the multiplayer within two months of release, making the the achievements impossible to get if you don't get them immediately after release. Hopefully, the multiplayer game is completely redone for the better like the entire game was redone in A.C.2.
