Assassin’s Creed III Beats to Quarters

AssassinsCreedIII

Connor does his best Captain Jack Aubrey impersonation in the new trailer for Assassin’s Creed III which puts the spotlight on 18th century naval warfare.

Helming their own warship, players will set sail on the open seas and engage hostile targets in heated cannonball firefights, boarding the opposing vessel to take command with more traditional melee combat tactics. This looks like it should be a much more successful side activity than the den defense in Revelations.
