The combat and weapons of Assassins Creed III


Ubisoft released the second Inside Assassins Creed III video. This time it focuses on the combat style and the weapons available to Connor in Assassins Creed III.

“The one thing we decided to do is to revamp the fight system from scratch.” explains Senior Producer, François Pelland. From the video, it seems the fighting style has become more proactive, instead of the past games where it was all about letting your enemies surround you and parrying/blocking their attacks to throw them off.

“We wanted the skill in the combat in the game to be about transition from character to character by choosing the right moves, by forming them correctly it allows you to mow your way through large numbers of people. If you’re good enough, without stopping.” adds Creative Director, Alex Hutchinson.

When it comes to weapons, I definitely can’t wait to get my hands on the rope dart. The Mortal Kombat fan in me wants to yell “COME OVER HERE!!” as I pull my enemy in and slice him up with my tomahawk.
