Finally, we get our first glimpse at Assassin's Creed 3's gameplay. Though it is all pre-alpha footage, there is a strong chance that this will be my favorite installment of the series. The Assassin Templar has gotten involved with the American Revolution, and our new hero, Connor Kenway, will be defending his land from colonial tyrants.
Thanks to the games time frame taking place between 1753 until 1783, we'll encounter historical figures such as George Washington, Benjamin Franklin, and Thomas Jefferson to name a few. We don't know what their roles are, but going on a mission to assassinate George Washington would be incredibly cool.
Along with historical figures and a new locale, the combat also looks much more brutal as you'll stab soldiers in the back with their own bayonets or throw a tomahawk at their face; probably one of the most satisfying kills in the game.
Stealth is also going to have a different approach as we will be able to run through the trees of the forests and pick of soldiers one by one, though that's not the only danger we'll face. Watching out for wildlife such as ferocious bears will also provide a nice challenge.
Assassin's Creed 3 is set to release on the Xbox 360, Playstation 3, and PC on October 30th and it's definitely a title you'll want to pick up.
