SDCC 2012 | Assassin's Creed III Gameplay Video

Creative Director Alex Hutchinson takes us on a journey through Boston in 1773, as he shows off gameplay for Assassin’s Creed 3.

The video starts out informing us there are two new city areas that we will be exploring while playing AC3, which are Boston and New York. Both cities were created as close as possible to the original setting of their time.

Assassin’s Creed 3 brings in old gameplay and mix them in with the new. You are able to take cover behind walls and trees, which activates stealth cover and as always, you’ll be able to pounce on your prey. In addition, there’s a stalker mode that allows Connor to hide within the bush.

The combat has been revamped. Instead of your health returning to the character slowly during battle, it will now return once the battle has ended. Connor is a duel weapon type of guy and the NPCs that you will be fighting will adjust, which in turn will cause the player to find another tactic to take down the enemy.

If you wish to flee from a fight, Connor is able to run through certain buildings and call upon allies dressed as Red Coats to get himself hidden.

Including the duel welding, Connor can use a rope attack that allows him to hang enemies and he can use a range attack with a bow and arrow.

Enjoy the video and Assassin’s Creed 3 drops on October 30th for Ps3 and XB360.
