On stage in their E3 presser, Ubisoft just showed off some gameplay footage and a new trailer for Assassin’s Creed III, all of which was incredibly incredible.
First we had some free-running in the trees, then there was a face-off in the snow between Connor and some wolves, then he was in the middle of a camp accepting missions. A quick conversational cutscene later and he was off on horseback through the snow once more. It was breakneck.
Later, amongst a group of vile English scum, Conner showed off some of his snazzy combat moves, including an awesome Arkham City/Asylum style silent hanging execution.
Then came the mountain climbing, with Conner hoisting himself up a sheer mountain face before making his way up above an enemy encampment. Scanning the area quickly, he unleashed a bomb, blew up a building, caused chaos, killed a load of dudes... and then it was over. Fucking brilliant.
It's all below.
