During the last couple of days Ubisoft managed to let thousands of people in the world do their dirty work. Everywhere in the world, players needed to post messages on their Facebook and Twitter profiles to unlock the first real gameplay trailer of Assassin’s Creed III. Well, today this trailer has been unlocked and it looks absolutely amazing.
The newest protagonist of the Assassin’s Creed series, Connor Kenway, talks during the whole length of the trailer, plus you get to see a lot of amazing open-world action in an snow-covered environment.
I’ve talked about the announcement and the released box art earlier this month, but today is the day that Ubisoft released the debut trailer of Assassin’s Creed III. It shows a couple of interesting things that will probably be included in the final game, such as massive open conflict and a lot of nature. Previous titles in the series relied on big cities to support the assassin’s free-running abilities, but it seems like we’re going to climb some trees in Assassin’s Creed III.
Assassin’s Creed III will use a new engine called “Ubisoft-AnvilNext”, which will bring improved visuals, animations and enemy AI with it. The game also takes place in one the most interesting time periods in American history, the American Revolution. Oh, and there will also be animals in the game!
The Games Developers Conference will take place this week in San Francisco, so I expect even more information coming soon. I don’t know about you, but I’m excited!
Ubisoft confirmed the existence of Assassin’s Creed III back in February and revealed the box art of the game yesterday. I got pretty excited by seeing the cover of the boxed retail version and hearing the news that the game will be set during the American Revolution, which took place during the last half of the 18th century. On top of that, Ubisoft announced that Assassin’s Creed III will be released on October 30 for Playstation 3, Xbox 360 and PC.
In a press release, Ubisoft said: “We confirm that Ubisoft will announce all the details of Assassin’s Creed III on Monday March 5th at 5pm.” I’m very excited to hear what the publisher has to say about the upcoming Assassin’s Creed III. Until then I’m playing Assassin’s Creed: Revelations and I will also probably watch The Patriot again.
