Assassin’s Creed III: First Gameplay Footage Released
Ubisoft promised that we’d get to see the first Assassin’s Creed III gameplay footage if the publisher received enough “Likes” on its Facebook page, and now the publisher has made good on its promise.
Yesterday, Ubisoft finally released our first taste of Assassin’s Creed III gameplay, and there’s a whole lot to take in. The first thing you’ll likely notice in the trailer is that Assassin’s Creed III looks different from its predecessors thanks to a new and improved engine, which Ubisoft is calling “AnvilNext.”
Said engine allows for some very impressive animations, which you’ll see for yourself in the Assassin’s Creed III trailer. The protagonist, Connor, can be seen dashing fluidly into a window, over a table, and out another window. For me, this is probably the best part in the trailer.
We also get to see a few of the kill moves Connor will be using to dispatch his enemies in Assassin’s Creed III, and it looks to be as brutal as ever–which is a good thing, I’d say. Not a whole lot of actual combat is shown, however, so we’ll have to sit tight for that.
