Too much historical strategy? The final “Inside Assassin’s Creed III” demonstrates its gameplay complexity


Connor decides a new tactic is in order.


This is it! The final installment of the behind-the-scenes for Assassin’s Creed III! You can tell that everyone during this interview is psyched to present this to you. It’s obvious that every single staff member for ACIII has put their heart and soul into this game. But during this last episode I believe you’ll see that the Assassin’s Creed saga has definitely stepped outside its trademark staples.

I was—and definitely still am—concerned about the ocean aspect of this game. As far as this special footage goes, I’m nervous about how they will handle taking Ratonhnhaké (Connor) from the deepest of his tribal woods to commanding a naval warship, looking like Napoleon. But my fears may be negated, because the excitement and courage in everyone’s eyes in this video reaffirms what I just said.

Every single production-geek has put their love into this game. But before you spend your money and heart on Assassin’s Creed III, I beseech you to look at the facts. This installment is going to be different in many wonderful and annoying ways. Just try not to go all Bayonetta 2 on it!
