Take a Tour of Colonial Boston in Assassin’s Creed III

AC3_BostonTour

In this new demo footage, Assassin’s Creed III Creative Director Alexander Hutchinson walks through a portion of gameplay set in the city of Boston, one of two huge new Colonial locales players will get to explore (the other being New York). Along the way, he also introduces some of the game’s evolved mechanics and new assassin tools, such as stalking zones that allow you to hide in brush, the ability to cut through buildings by leaping through windows for quicker escape, a new stealth positioning system that allows you to assassinate red coats from cover points on walls and trees, the retooled combat system, and–my favorite–the rope dart. Watch the video to see what the rope dart can do. It’s awesome.

Also released today are these new screenshots from Assassin’s Creed III‘s new Wolfpack co-op mode, which will have players teaming up to take out a series of assassination targets against a clock, with each kill adding extra time.
