This is the fourth and final episode in a four-part series offering an inside-look on the making of Assassin’s Creed III. In this episode, the developer focuses on the big historical events in the colonial cities of Boston and New York. The trailer also focuses on the dangerous life and the extreme weather conditions on the American frontier. Finally, we get a glimpse of the life in the open seas and the naval warfare during that period.
Assassin’s Creed III will be available on October 30th, 2012.
We bring you the third episode in a four-part series offering an inside-look on the making of Assassin’s Creed III. In this episode, the developer focuses on the hero behind the war.
Watch Connor Kenway, protagonist in Assassin Creed III, encounter historical figures such as George Washington, Benjamin Franklin and Thomas Jefferson, in a critical part of the American revolution.
Coming into this Prince of Persia game, I had only played the Prince of Persia for the PC back in the 90’s, so I had zero expectations regarding gameplay and story. In this iteration, the story was engrossing and compelling. I found myself wanting to play the game to see what would happen toward the end. The other key character ends up being a ‘partner’ that is more of a ‘helper’ than anything. The humor between the two characters is witty and humorous. The voice acting was well done for the main characters; the main character’s voice is Nolan North (Nathan Drake), and he made the dialogue fun to listen to.
I believe the story mode for this Prince of Persia may be a bit more sci-fi than what some are used to, but I enjoyed it. For those collecting trophies, I’d suggest not updating the game with the latest patch, and then updating it prior to beating the game to help with some of the trophies to limit the number of times you need to playthrough the game.
First, I will start off with saying that the PlayStation Vita will be getting a spin-off of Assassin’s Creed III, subtitled Liberation, which stars, for the first time in the series, a female lead role. Her name is Aveline, a woman with a French and African heritage. Since the game takes place in Louisiana, around 1765, the area will about to be handed over from the French to the Spanish, but an ultimately unsuccessful rebellion will try to stop it. Aveline, it seems, is part of this rebellion. Some standout weapons in Aveline’s arsenal include dueling pistols, a poison dart blow pipe, and a machete.
As for Assassin’s Creed III (PS3), we’ll be seeing four exclusive missions for that as well. On a related note, check after the jump for a gameplay trailer featuring Connor as a ship captain in the Caribbean (showing that there is some naval warfare; there is also a premiere trailer for Liberation). One last tidbit, according to Jack Tretton, if you link both PS3 and Vita games, you’ll unlock Connor’s tomahawk, a new character skin, a new multiplayer character (how much do you want to bet it will be Aveline?), and fully upgraded ammo pouches.
Now, with that out of the way, Ubisoft and Sony have once again teamed up for some bundles. There will be a PlayStation 3 bundled with Assassin’s Creed III, of course, but Assassin’s Creed III Liberation will also be bundled with a crystal white wifi PlayStation Vita (and a 4GB memory card). They will launch alongside the games on October 30th.
