Assassin's Creed 3 Screenshots Slaughter Redcoats
Another set of Assassin's Creed 3 screenshots have leaked before Ubisoft could officially release them. This latest batch shows Connor, the new protagonist, sticking it to the British army in the American wilderness.
Connor, a youth of both Native American and English descent, becomes wrapped up in the age-old war between the Assassins and Templars. Considering the screenshots and trailer show him exclusively killing redcoats, I imagine that the British army is supposed to be a proxy for the Templars. A shadowy global conspiracy wouldn't bet on just one horse, though, so the Continental Army probably has its share of Templar agents as well.
One of the screenshots shows Connor looking out over a port town. It's not quite as dense as some of the cities in previous AC games. Judging by these screenshots and the previous bunch, it seems like a good chunk of the game will take place in rural areas or wilderness. The core AC gameplay - stalking prey, battling multiple opponents at once, and exploring a vast open world - appears intact, though.
AC3 will be released in October on the PS3, Xbox 360 and PC. A Wii U version is also in development but currently undated.
