New Assassin's Creed 3 Screens & Details Leak Out

Another batch of Assassin's Creed 3 screenshots have sneaked onto the internet ahead of embargo thanks to Spanish language gaming site Gremio De La Sombras. As well as revealing some new images, this latest leak also informs us about the "rope dart" weapon that can be used to kill unsuspecting soldiers while hiding in tree branches.

According to the new intel (much of which should be taken with a pinch of salt, partly due to the potential for being lost in translation), evasion will play a much more pivotal role in Assassin's Creed 3 compared to previous games. Groups of enemies will now simultaneously rush you rather than hanging back and individually attacking, meaning that tactically avoiding engagement or stealthily picking off targets will be the key to success. To this end, the new Rope Dart allows Connor to hook unwary targets from overhanging tree branches or lofty vantage points. Apparently, every wall, object and surface can be climbed.

Cities will provide a more realistic representation of day to day life, with villagers going about their daily routines depending on the time of day. Crowd AI has reportedly also received an upgrade, and some characters will even come to your aid if they're sympathetic to your cause.

You can read the full article over at Gremio De La Sombras (translated by Google). Ubisoft is likely to confirm these details soon, as well as providing high-resolution versions of the images.

How lovely to see two nations - The US and France, who have been seperated over the years by mistrust, xenophobia and arrogance - united through the hatred of The UK.

WIll someone please become massively and disproportionately outraged on our behalf a la Resi Evil 5? Sounds like a job for ...News of the World...oh....wait...

Obviously renaissance Italy wasn't selling enough in the 12-18 demographic of US gamers so they figured a bit of redcoat scalping would move the story on and up their sales. Generally I'd say it looks good so far, I just hope they don't drag this story out to three or four games before they time skip again.. it's nice to see something fresh from a series rather than just reuse the engine and character models etc to create a cheap sequel every 12 months!
