Connor's on a boat!
One of the interesting side tasks you'll have in October's Assassin's Creed III is commanding a ship and turning your guns on the British. The press release promises different types of ammo to take down the Brits and I'm getting a real Sid Meier's Pirates vibe from this (that's a good thing--Pirates is great and now I'm conjuring up a standalone naval combat AC game that has you hunting for treasure and taking down privateers from other countries).
Anyway, here's that official synopsis:
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. Players become an Assassin in the war for liberty against ruthless tyranny in the most stylized and fluid combat experiences in the franchise to date. Assassin’s Creed III spans the Revolutionary War, taking gamers from the vibrant, untamed frontier to bustling colonial towns and the intense, chaotic battlefields where George Washington’s Continental Army clashed with the imposing British Army.
Assassin's Creed III will be available on the PS3, PC, and Xbox 360 on October 30th. The Wii U version has not received a release date but is expected sometime this holiday season.
