Ubisoft went through an extensive demonstration of Assassin Creed III‘s combat and mechanics, showcasing how main character Connor Kenway deals with armies of armed soldiers brandishing muskets.

While there isn’t an abundance of buildings in the American Frontier, Kenway was shown using trees and slick, icy slopes to get the jump on enemies out in the wild. Of course, animals will sometimes be a bigger problem than people, as the official E3 trailer even showed Kenway fending off a bear attack.
