Assassin’s Creed III receives new screenshots
Ubisoft have released stunning screenshots for Assassin’s Creed III, recently confirmed for Wii U.
As the first core entry within the series to hit a Nintendo platform, Ubisoft have described the game as being “a great time for gamers to join the adventure”.
In the shoes of a new assassin, you’ll play as Ratohnaké:ton, a Native American of English heritage, in a storyline set during the Revolutionary War. Adopting the name Connor, this new protagonist joins the war for liberty, spanning locals that include colonial towns to chaotic battlefields where George Washington’s Continental Army clash with the imposing British Army.
It’s set to introduce a “two-handed combat system”, effectively allowing you to dual-wield weapons with early examples being the tomahawk and knife, and seasonal changes that will dynamically affect the environment and your abilities.
Rumours also emerged of a four-player co-operative mode, and that Ubisoft Annecy are currently working on the multiplayer portion of the title.
Assassin’s Creed III is due to release worldwide across PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC on October 31st, with a Wii U version to launch later in the year.
