This week AusGamers was invited out to Ubisoft's Sydney HQ to sit in on a 10-minute plus developer video walkthrough for the forthcoming Assassin's Creed III - the first proper sequel to the series since 2009's Assassin's Creed II.

The video introduced us in deeper detail to the series' new protagonist, Connor, a half Native American, half English member of the Assassins, once again working against the Knights Templar, this time during the American Revolution. We watched him climb trees and cliff faces, take down a giant grizzly bear, ride cross-country on horseback, arrive in the bustling city of 18th Century Boston, despatch enemies with a tomahawk and basically just kick lots of ass.

Excellent preview Steve, one note about the weather, one of the screen shots shows rain, so I'd wager that it will be dynamic or event based weather maybe.

I'd assume no less than 5 Conner based games. Probably more if you include portable systems. On the plus side i've enjoyed each AC so I don't mind.

I'm just a little tired of the super slow overarching plot movement. Like last game being stuck on animus isle seemed cool as you had this weird alter-ego like guy being totally crazy in the animus with you, but they didn't do anything with it. I collected all 100 fragments well before i completed the storyline because i hoped that at the 100th there'd be a new part of desmond's memories that might open up but nothing happened.

In previous games to the animus isle, at least you could leave the animus and chat with your friends and they'd say trivial tidbits to break up the gameplay. In this one that didn't really happen you just arbritrarily were following ezio because you didn't want to lose your mind. Making the whole game nearly pointless :(

At least the gameplay mechanics i like a lot so even a bad story or a disapointing story can be forgiven as long as the game is fun to play. With a full propper new game I hope that they fix my gripes with a whole new interesting storyline.
