Assassin's Creed III Preview | Shipping Up To Boston

Assassin's Creed III may be set during a Revolution, but from the footage and screenshots we've witnessed over the past few weeks, its gameplay is set to be an evolution of the dynamic fight & flight formula we've come to love from Ubisoft's breakthrough series. Keen to know more about the first full sequel since Ezio's introduction three years ago, I sought out an extended guided tour, free from the hype and stressful crowds of the E3 show floor, in order to get to grips with the new features of this anticipated title. The demo took us deep into the heart of Boston, which was one of the most important cities in the revolutionary conflict. And the host of that infamous tea party... not to mention the tragic massacre.

The demo started in traditional Assassin's Creed style: a sweeping, cinematic tour of the city as its inhabitants set about their daily business. Swooping both high and low, the camera picked out citizens gossiping in the streets or tending their market stalls, populating the town in much greater numbers and with more realistic intent than in past games. Though Boston isn't anywhere near as topographically diverse as, say, Rome, this slight lack of verticality is more than made up for by the ability to quickly climb any surface and a greater number of interior spaces being fully modelled, such as bedrooms and lobbies. Finally, the camera settled on Connor as he regally squat atop one of the two-storey dwellings, beholding a dramatic scene playing out below.

A washerwoman desperately pleaded with a Cockney Redcoat guard for leniency for her husband, who was being held in the stocks down a filthy alleyway. Unmoved by her pleas, the colonial aggressor (sorry, fellow Brits, but there's going to be a lot of that kind of talk in Assassin's Creed III) shoved her away and stalked back to join his comrades, leaving the distraught wife below. Leaping across the rooftops with fluid grace - the 'puppeteering' system has been vastly upgraded to make jumping much more precise and natural than before - Connor leapt to the relative safety of a hay cart on the street below, loitering beneath the straw long enough to silently grab and murder a passing guard as he strolled by. These mobile landing pads should ensure that players can move between high elevations and street level on the fly, all while giving players the familiar thrill of jumping from stupid, insane heights.

Ubisoft: Assassin's Creed 3 Is "Not About America Ra Ra"

"It's About English And English"

Ubisoft will apparently be putting historical accuracy over jingoism when it comes to Assassin's Creed III's setting. Lead writer Matt Turner has spoken out to state that the story is "not about America ra ra" since it's set before the country was officially founded, thus making the conflict a very English affair.
