E3 2012: naval battles and tomahawks in ‘Assassin’s Creed III’ footage.


It’s no secret that Assassin’s Creed III will be one of the biggest games of the year. With a new setting, a new protagonist, and tons of gameplay improvements, the title is poised to become the highest-selling entry in the franchise, and after seeing it in action during Ubisoft’s press conference, it’s easy to see why. Have a look at the live gameplay demo, courtesy of IGN.


The tomahawk looks positively brutal during the hand-to-hand combat scenes, and the addition of new weapons and new stealth kills should definitely give players something to look forward to. But that’s not all – during the Sony press conference, Ubisoft took to the stage once again to reveal another aspect of Assassin’s Creed III: naval combat.

Assassin’s Creed III will be released on October 30, 2012 for the Xbox 360, PS3, and PC.
