Awesome new Assassin’s Creed 3 AnvilNext trailer released

A new trailer has been released for Assassin’s Creed 3 courtesy of Ubisoft. The trailer features the games new setting – the U.S of A, during the conflict with the British before the declaration of independence. The games new protagonist Connor has American Indian heritage, and that shines through in his choice of weapons and in his combat style. The game reportedly has an astonishing 1000 new animations for Connor alone, and watching him take down enemies from the trees is pretty cool.

The AnvilNext engine allows for many on-screen characters, and the trailer demonstrates this in some seriously amazing large scale battle scenes. The game looks awesome so far, and promises sea travel in addition to the huge battles, new moves, dynamic weather cycles, and much more.

The theme is a welcome change in my opinion from past Assassin’s Creed titles, and looks to offer a fresh take on the series. The trailer shows some interesting footage of Connor using his assassin agility to traverse across the trees in a snowy forest, which is a change from the building-to-building style of past games in the series.
