The details come courtesy of the latest issue of Game Informer and reveal that Boston will be one of the two major cities featured in the game. The second will be New York, following the Great Fire of New York.
A seasonal cycle of weather will also be implemented, which will not only change the environment, but also gameplay. Enemies will behave differently in each weather condition and lakes will freeze over allowing you to cross them.
Finally Assassin’s Creed III will be similar to Assassin’s Creed II, where you will take control of the main character, Conner, at different points of his life.
EGM’s TAKE: At appears that most of the high scaling and leaps of faith will be performed in these two major cities, allowing the game to retain its usual flow of concealment and rooftop chases. The weather cycle will add a pretty interesting new element to gameplay. Will it be easier or harder to move around in the snow, will enemies struggle to spot you in harsh weather? A lot more strategy will be required when planning attacks requiring you to take weather into account. Assassin’s Creed III is shaping up to be just as amazing as previous entries.
