PostSubject: Assassin's Creed 3 Game Details   Sat Mar 10, 2012 10:26 pm

Found this on a website, very interesting info, if its true I'm really looking forward to this game so much

Some industrious little so-and-so over on NeoGAF have got their hands on the latest issue of Game Informer magazine, which features the full skinny on Assassin's Creed III, with story and gameplay details galore. According to GI's feature, the game's new hero is a half-English/half-Native American assassin called Connor and he'll encounter and interact with a number of key figures from the American Revolution period, including George Washington and Benjamin Franklin.

Assassin's Creed III will be set in and around New York and Boston between 1753 and 1783, which will see Connor growing up from a young boy on the American frontier, where he's raised by the Mohawk before leaving to confront the Templars after his village is burned down by white colonists.

Ubisoft is apparently also aiming to make Assassin's Creed III feel more like Assassin's Creed 3.5, with a completely overhauled engine allowing for improved facial animation and large battle scenes featuring loads of soldiers on screen at once. And not all of the game's British colonists will be pure evil either. You'll meet some nice ones too.

Check out the full details here, boiled down by NeoGAF and taken from CVG. Stay tuned after the bullet points for four new screenshots, via AGB. Now, strap yourself in, grab yourself a drink and wade on through this lot.... There's loads to get through here, folks:
•New hero called Connor/Ratohnhake:ton (pronounced Ra-doon-ha-gay-doo). He has an English father and Native American mother.
•More details about the protagonist/scenarios: You will experience Connor's childhood on the American frontier as he is raised by the Mohawk. The Mohawk eventually clash with white colonists who burn their village down, causing Connor to dedicate his life to confront tyranny and injustice.
•A new traversal approach that has players leaping and climbing trees and mountain cliffs.
•Uses a new version of the Anvil engine that can "depict thousands of troops engaged in bloody battle" along with highly detailed face close-ups.
•They later imply that if they used version numbers, they would be like going from Anvil 1.0 -> Anvil 2.0 or something of that nature.
•Combat is focused on putting you on the offensive and based on speed/momentum.
•The main character has thousands of new and unique animations (no carry over from other titles) to support the new combat system.

Character details:
•George Washington: Interacting with Washington is one of the core relationships of the game.
•Benjamin Franklin: He's not a convenient inventor a la Da Vinci.
•Charles Lee: His role is a mystery.
•The game is set between the years 1753 - 1783 and is centered around the cities of Boston and New York.
•"It's not just going to a historical building now; it's going to a historical event."

Event examples:
•"You will see the great fire of New York. You will visit Valley Forge as a location that is currently occupied by Washington's forces. You will visit these places in the moment that they were important, and hopefully, experience the reason why we know where they are today. That's the goal."
•Connor is in the heart of major battles, and they can now have a couple thousand guys on screen, whereas before it was capped at about 100.
•The overall story is still centered around the Assassins versus the Templars and Connor's journey.
•Not all the Colonists will be cast as good people, and not all the British will be cast as evil oppressors. They're trying to focus on how both the Assassins and Templars viewpoints exist in a gray morality as the Templars really believe they're saving the world.
•The French and Native Americans will also feature in the game, as was probably really obvious.
•The modern day stuff relates to that location in New York at the end of Revelations.
•There will be all sorts of wilderness in the game referred to as the Frontier.
•The map of the Frontier is 1.5 times bigger than the entire map of Brotherhood.
•The Frontier is not empty like in Assassin's Creed 1, but features a third of the game's missions and gameplay content.
•You can hunt animals for resources, and how you kill them effects your reward. A one hit kill on a bear gets you a much more valuable pelt than stabbing it eight times.
•The wilderness traversal plays a big part in the gameplay in the Frontier, allowing you to use trees, cliffs, ledges, and more to set up kills and combat.
•Connor does have a hidden blade.
•The world changes as time passes, so a field where a battle happened in one year may just be a series of empty encampments a few months later.
•The entire world will change with seasons, so the cities and the wilderness will all exist in both Summer and Winter settings.
•In the winter, soldiers will move slowly and stumble about in the snow, and lakes and rivers will freeze over allowing you new terrain to work with. This gives Connor an extra advantage since he can still use the trees and wilderness pretty effectively during this time of year.
•There are all sorts of clubs and groups who want you to join and give you quests. These are separate from the mission system. These clubs will contact you based on what you do in the game. For example, hunting a lot will get you an invitation to the hunting society.
•There will be a goods based economy, a new property system, and more Desmond stuff.
•There's going to be some new puzzle thing like the first person Tetris.
•There's a new Animus database known as Animus 3.0.
•They're not unveiling anything about the multiplayer yet.
•There will be more platforming levels.
•Full synchronization returns, but with major tweaks. Missions have checkpoints, You also get significant rewards for doing these tasks instead of a 100%. "Imagine a leveling system in an RPG, except there's a finite amount of XP to find. The more in-sync you get, the more you fill your sync bar. Within each mission, each activity you complete has a value". You can replay everything to increase your score.
•They imply there is something resembling the Brotherhood system of picking up fellow assassins.
•Aligned groups are gone, but something new is replacing them in regards to factions. They don't say what.
•There's a new notoriety system that is more hidden and doesn't penalise you for exploring risky areas.
•The game has fast travel because the game has more traveling.
•Don't expect more den defense.
•You can upgrade Connor's gear and costume as the game goes on in an attempt to make it feel more authentic.
•The cities have a lot more subtle detail now in terms of ambient things that happen.
•You can now leap over wagons or slide under obstacles, including navigating over and around moving objects. The free running stuff also has you jumping through windows to trees and then on top of church roofs. Basically, expect the free running stuff, but more fluid and presumably generally closer to the ground.
•Connor enters battle with two weapons. The game uses the same controls in and out of battle.
•The tomahawk and knife are a "constant presence" in battle. They also let you do double counters and multiple takedowns, and you can chain kills.
•There's no more target locking, it just automatically detects your target. Counter/defense are the same button to prevent turtling.
•You can use human shields and other context sensitive moves.
•They want you to constantly move in battle.
•There are lots of secondary attacks like the one shot pistol on the Y button.
•There's a new dynamic camera to track the action and make it look as cinematic as possible.
•There is a new sprinting system also, so you can hold the button to instantly turn around and start fleeing from combat. They also let you kill people while still moving so you can keep chasing a target. They kind of imply you can even leap off of them after you kill them, though I'm not sure if that makes you faster or just doesn't impede your movement.
•They really, really, really want you to constantly move. I mean like they say this every four sentences. Not just in battle, but in every section of the game.
•They also try to keep you more in control of the combat than ever before.
•Game Informer really loves their animation system.
•There are around 2.5 hours of character scenes in the game that are fully acted and recorded. They mean this in Naughty Dog style where they have the actors being mocaped while performing on a set that resembles the scene in the game.
•They're aiming for accuracy by having historical dialog consultants and actual Native American actors.
•This game has the longest development cycle since AC1, and has twice the production capacity (in terms of work hours) and budget of Revelations.
•They want the game to feel like AC3.5, and the game will have its first version complete in just a few more weeks, at which point they're going to spend the rest of their time refining it.

Defiantly, and Assassins Creed has been my favorite game series ever since i started playing II, III is going to be amazing in my opinion, and its not about the buildings or the climbing, its about the story and game play. The only other games that i am REALLY exited for is Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City and 6

None as of yet, but I have a feeling you play as Desmonds descendant and got a feeling there might be a few missions as Desmond the way that revelations finished. As soon as I get any more info ill be posting it here (or our Xbox forum)

Yeah, Revelations left off at a HUGE cliffhanger lol. It will probably have a least two or three missions as Desmond. Hopefully.

That first person crap was the only thing I hated about Revelations. I'd had never brought the Lost Archives DLC I've I'd actually read the description. lol

Oh well I got the Ottoman Jester out of it so I'm sort of happy.

I'm like one of a very small number of people who enjoyed it, it was something different rather then the same thing. But hey ho, if we all liked the same stuff would be a very boring world we lived in

I liked the desmond sections in AC:B, I just didn't like the first person stuff because if I'd have wanted to play that kind of thing I'd have bought Portal. Much like the under water level in Gears 3 that blew chunks as well. lol

Yes but unlike gears where you were forced to play that shockingly slow and momentum killing level, you CHOOSE to play Desmond part, it wasn't forced on you, and before you come back with you had to do it for the cheevos, no you didn't, you could have just not bothered, there isn't some sort of gamerscore police or special award for massive gamerscore so again you choose to play it or not. ;-) lol
