Assassin's Creed 3 Creative Director Alex Hutchinson presents this gameplay video from E3 2012. AC 3 takes players to the American Revolution in a Master and Commander-inspired naval adventure. The icy environment has dense forestry for protagonist Connor, too, allowing him to traverse the tree lines and dive down onto enemies.
Combat has some improvements in Assassin's Creed 3, with counter moves and dual-wielding.
So, check out the trailer and bask in the beauty that is the next Assassin's Creed!
