Ubisoft Walks Players Through Their E3 Assassin’s Creed 3 Demo in a New Video

June 13, 2012Written by Alex Osborn

After a couple of spinoffs that left many feeling tired of the Assassin’s Creed franchise, the third proper installment looks to breathe new life into Desmond’s tale. Set during the American Revolution, AC3 explores the story of Connor, a Native American assassin tasked with thwarting the efforts of the Templars. Ubisoft showed off the game in a walkthrough video at E3, and we’ve got an updated version, now loaded with developer commentary.

Feast your eyes on the “Frontier Walkthrough” video below:

Bringing the fight to the snowy woods of 1776 New England was a genius move on the part of the Assassin’s Creed development team, as navigating Connor across tree limbs makes use of the series’ hallmark free run mechanic while setting it against a completely new backdrop. You’ll also notice that the game sports visuals that significantly outshine its predecessors, with better facial animations and breathtaking environments.

Assassin’s Creed 3 is set to launch on October 30th.
