The second episode in this four part series focusses on the combat, weapons and tactics of Assassin's Creed III. Discover the brutal realities of warfare during the American Revolution and find out why the guerrilla tactics used by the Americans would turn the tides of war. Finally, uncover the real world inspiration and gameplay innovation behind Connor's all-new weaponry and combat system.
The developers and creative team behind Assassin’s Creed III talks about how they tried to replicate the real world fights of the American Revolution into the game.
The lead protagonist of the game, Connor, has a completely new fighting style and has new animations. Players can now wield dual weapons, something that wasn't possible in the past Assassin’s Creed games. His moves are more close and aggressive as well. Connor also has some new weapons as a part of his arsenal such as a bow and arrow and a rope dart very similar to Scorpions “get over here move”.
Connor’s movements can essentially be defined as guerrilla warfare – swift kills and escapes.
