Just in case killin’ dudes on land was not enough for the assassins, now they are killin’ dudes on the open sea as well. Assassin’s Creed III sports a lot of new ideas to the series, but one has caught more eyes than the naval battles.
Prepare for the fight of your life, though. Before even thinking about storming the deck and taking out the captain, you’ll have to cripple the enemy vessel and keep it still for long enough to complete your raid. The latest video from Gamescom to hit the net walks through the epic showdowns, showing off how the dynamic weather patterns can wipe you out just as easily as any enemy ship can.
Set amongst the American Revolution, the narrator announces that you will be able to relive historical famous battles as they were actually fought on the sea. Now we just need to wait and see if any giant enemy crabs wait below the dark waters of Assassin Creed III.
Assassin’s Creed III will be released for the Xbox360 and PlayStation 3 on October 30th. The Wii U version does not yet have an official release, and the PC version was delayed until the following month on Nov. 20.
