Today sent some Assassin’s Creed III goodies our way in the form of some and an all-new video.

These assets highlight the new hero’s background, including weapons he uses and the different environments he will be in throughout the game.

The video is just a short clip, but if a picture is worth a thousand words, a video must be worth…a gillion (urban diction reference) right?

[pullquote_left]Most stylized and fluid combat experiences in the franchise to date[/pullquote_left]Set against the backdrop of the American Revolution in the late 18th century, Assassin’s Creed III introduces a new hero, Ratohnhaké:ton, of Native American and English heritage. Adopting the name Connor, he becomes the new voice for justice in the ancient war between the Assassins and Templars. Players become an Assassin in the war for liberty against ruthless tyranny in the most stylized and fluid combat experiences in the franchise to date. Assassin’s Creed III spans the Revolutionary War, taking gamers from the vibrant, untamed frontier to bustling colonial towns and the intense, chaotic battlefields where George Washington’s Continental Army clashed with the imposing British Army.
