Assassin's Creed III promises the biggest Assassin's Creed game to date. The locations are much larger than in previous games – The Frontier itself is over 1.5 times larger the Rome seen in Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood and offers greater freedom in the open-world gameplay that fans have come to expect from the series. The time-frame of the game is larger too, spanning 30 years in the life of Connor from 1753 to 1783.
The Frontier is a wide open wilderness that offers more unique challenges than ever before. From rocky cliff faces to heavy wooded areas, Connor is equally at home climbing and navigating trees and ledges as he is taking out enemies on the ground. And it's not just about stalking foes both British and Templar; this game gives you the chance to animals as well as your human prey.
City-based gameplay still plays a big part, with fantastic and densely-packed recreations of Boston and New York. On top of this, a new dynamic weather system is in place that brings real changes to the action with the changes of the seasons. When winter comes, rivers freeze bringing a change to the geography and allowing you to adapt to the terrain like never before. Enemy soldiers also adapt, becoming colder and slower and easier to pick off!
