New Assassin’s Creed III Trailer and Screenshots Shows What it Takes to be an 18th Century Assassin

by Charles PowersMarch 26, 2012

Today Ubisoft sent some Assassin’s Creed III goodies our way in the form of some screenshots and an all-new video.

These assets highlight the new hero’s background, including weapons he uses and the different environments he will be in throughout the game.

The video is just a short clip, but if a picture is worth a thousand words, a video must be worth…a gillion (urban diction reference) right?

[pullquote_left]Most stylized and fluid combat experiences in the franchise to date[/pullquote_left]Set against the backdrop of the American Revolution in the late 18th century, Assassin’s Creed III introduces a new hero, Ratohnhaké:ton, of Native American and English heritage. Adopting the name Connor, he becomes the new voice for justice in the ancient war between the Assassins and Templars. Players become an Assassin in the war for liberty against ruthless tyranny in the most stylized and fluid combat experiences in the franchise to date. Assassin’s Creed III spans the Revolutionary War, taking gamers from the vibrant, untamed frontier to bustling colonial towns and the intense, chaotic battlefields where George Washington’s Continental Army clashed with the imposing British Army.

[box_light]Gamers who pre-order Assassin’s Creed III at GameStop®, or Best Buy® will receive a Limited Edition collectible case featuring artwork created by award-winning comic book artist Alex Ross.[/box_light]

Do I find the spots of far more codex pages by synchronising viewpoints ? I have 25, but I do not see the spots of any other pages. Make Sure You reply only if you have really played and beaten assassins creed 2.

    I want a software program to render 720p video clips for my Video recreation commentaries on Youtube. I do not want nearly anything special. No particular effects, no audio effects, I just need 720p videos. And I need it to work for my Haupage HD PVR. Any Ideas? And try out to do the least expensive one as possible, but excellent quality.

    I want to set a Halo 3 motion picture on Youtube. I’ve recorded the video clip on my video camera but I had to file it about 53 minutes into the tape simply because a loved ones video took up the first 50 minutes of the tape. Do you have any recommendations on how I can get a area of the video clip and put it on Youtube? If I require computer software remember to notify me what software package I need.

    What video clip making plan can I use to make a video of photos, video clip clips, and title screens with qualifications music? I never want a slideshow, I want to make a inventive video with transitions and be ready to zoom into and zoom out of photographs so I can get a near up view of them. I already experimented with Windows Motion Picture Maker and I actually do not like that program.

    Any ideas?
    I would choose free of charge applications please.

    I am seeking for one thing not to pricey but not necesarily cheap. I am preparing on carrying out a good deal of video clip tasks in excess of the following 12 months and want to use the best achievable video clip recorder that will give me that High Definition resolution and is not to huge and bulky. I will be finding my iMac in a few months with Last Reduce Convey 4 pre-installed. Also, I want a video camera not to complex to use.

    I Am writin a tale and the major character is an assassin. I lately finished the assassin’s creed game titles and it got to me wondering how i could match the concealed blade into my story. Could anyone tell me how you would make a blade like that utilizing medieval engineering and stuff?

  • Cecilia Osburn

    Really dumb question: what modes are in Assassins Creed Brotherhood online? I saw 1 in which you are granted a target you need to kill. Is this the only reward of enjoying online?

  • Maggie Saucier

    (i dont feel i can get assassins creed for wii right?) but my xbox broke, cash is tight, and close friends gave us a wii that my sisters never ever play, so its generally mine. I liked assassins creed and totally free environment roaming games. what else is similar?

    So.. I make videos on youtube. But I want it to have the button so my subscribers can watch the video if they choose in HD. I’ve been searching for a way but the ways I watched are not for VIDEO CAMERAS. I can’t buy a new video recorder or whatever because my family won’t let me, so could you guys tell me how to make my videos on windows movie maker with a video camera? Thank you in advance!

    I heard that it might have Co-op online, but I don’t play online. So I wanted to know if anyone heard anything about Offline Co-op, and if they don’t have it they should look into adding it in. I think it would make the game more fun, and if more people are playing more enemies could be on the map.
    They should give him a partner assassin that you can change the gender, facial features, and hair.

    I was looking to preorder Assassin’s Creed III on PC. However, I want to use my xBox 360 controller on my pc (yes I have a receiver and the controller works on my PC), but I was wondering if the game will have controller support? Also will Ubisoft be releasing any more limited editions of the game (like the really expensive versions that have artwork and sountrack and DLC)?

    Besides the slight difference in some of the words. Does it matter which one you say in the Rosary? I always end up saying the Nicene Creed because it comes automatically since we say it in church.

  • Harriet W

    What the title says.

    Or is it basically AC 2.5?
    Forgot to add in the question:

    I know they said it was going to be a trilogy, and that the story will continue. But will this take it “to the end”, or will they release another after this one?

  • musicistabest

    I have been given enough money to buy a new game and I can’t decide between the two upcoming games Sniper Elite V2 and Assassin’s Creed III. I’m more leaning towards AC III. but I’m not sure. Is there any way that AC III is totally going to suck, or will Sniper Elite be way better? Please Help!
    I forgot I mention that I have playe all of the Assassins Creed games and a lot of FPSs as well, also in WWII setting, and I love them all. I know these games haven’t come out yet, but how could they possibly compare to the other games in their series? Thanks
