New Naval Warfare Trailer For Assassin’s Creed III Sets Sail

Posted on August 14, 2012 by Les Major

It seems like just yesterday I was expressing my excitement over AC3’s naval warfare and today we already have a new trailer for the seafaring combat!

As Connor, you’ll lead your crew through rough waters and into battle against enemy ships. This interests me most of all being a fan of Skies of Arcadia which while AC3 isn’t an RPG, the naval combat tactics of coming alongside your enemy and releasing a barrage of cannon fire ring true. Playing out this kind of engagement sounds fantastic and set in the American Revolution AC3 is shaping up to be an amazing sequel.

Ubisoft has confirmed there will be a PC release of Assassin’s Creed III in addition to it’s other versions. The PS3 and Xbox 360 versions are set for a Halloween release of October 31st with the Wii U version following up as a release title for Nintendo’s new console. The PC version will be released November 20th.

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. The game stars Connor as an Assassin in the war for  liberty against ruthless tyranny in the most stylized and fluid combat experiences in the franchise to date.

With an all new game engine and fresh animations not only does it sound like ACIII will be a smoother experience but the American Revolution backdrop looks fantastic with the more we see of the game. Including such amazing new features as naval warfare the sequel is living up to the expectations of improving the franchise with each new release.
