Synopsis and Features
Assassin’s Creed III starts in the present day with Desmond using the machine known as the Animus to relive the memories of his ancestors to find a clue as to how to stop the catastrophic events of December 21, 2012. You play Desmond’s ancestor Ratonhnhake:ton who is half-English and half-Mohawk. He is one of the guardians of the Grand Temple and gets to speak to Juno who warns him that if he does not leave his tribe to find his destiny everyone will suffer. Juno asks him to find Achilles Davenport, a master assassin to help in training and shows Ratonhnhake:ton the symbol of the Assassins.
Ratonhnhake:ton takes on the name Connor to be able to blend in more easily in town. Achilles makes him a full-fledged member of the Assassin’s Brotherhood after completion of his training. Connor then sets out to kill the Colonial Templars who were the cause of much harm to his tribe. New features such as double-counters, multiple takedowns and chain kills have been introduced to add more excitement to the game. Dual-wielding of weapons has also been introduced, allowing Connor to attack with both hands making him even more deadly. New weapons include a tomahawk, flintlock, hidden blades, pistol, rope darts and the bow and arrow.
The standard target locking system has been removed and replaced with the much more effective automated enemy selection system that helps you attack faster. This open environment game allows you to explore the city at will and even climb up building to spy on a target. The game runs on Ubisoft’s advanced Anvil Next game engine which is incredible at delivering smooth gameplay and brilliant graphics.
