Connor Goes Hunting in New Assassin’s Creed 3 Screens

If you’ve seen any of the footage of Assassin’s Creed 3, then you’re likely well aware of the game’s snowy environments. In the latest batch of screenshots, Ubisoft has showcased the game’s serene, white-covered terrain as Connor chases down wildlife.

The screens – first spotted by All Games Beta – are far and away some of the most impressive visuals we’ve seen from an Assassin’s Creed game, boasting crisp, clean environments that look alarmingly lifelike. Check out the images for yourself in the gallery below.

As is evidenced by the screenshots, it looks like hunting prey will play a major role in AC3, especially when considering the fact that a bulk of the game will take place in the woods. After all, nothing says stealth like slowly sneaking up on a deer and jabbing it from behind.

Assassin’s Creed 3 is set to launch on the PS3, Xbox 360 and PC this October. Be sure to let us know what you think of the wilderness-heavy environments in the comments below.
