32w ago - Ubisoft Community Developer Gabriel Graziani shared a video spotlighting Assassin's Creed III: The Redemption for PS3 which arrives today.
Below are the details, to quote: The final chapter of Assassin's Creed III's three-part Tyranny of King Washington single-player DLC series is nearly upon us! The mad King George Washington has retreated within his New York stronghold and Ratonhnhake:ton must prepare an assault against Washington's incredible fortress.
As the stakes continue to rise in Ratonhnhake:ton's pursuit of Washington, so too must his strength and ferocity. Calling on an ancient source of might, Ratonhnhake:ton must once again risk his sanity to embark on a mysterious and dangerous Sky Journey in order to release the Power of the Bear.
The Power of the Bear enables Ratonhnhake:ton to strike the ground with such immeasurable force that all nearby enemies will be hurled into the air or crushed into the ground. Even more remote enemies will be staggered by the concentration of will and raw power, making the Power of the Bear an effective method of crowd control.
Like Ratonhnhake:ton's other abilities (Eagle and Wolf), the Power of the Bear can even be used from rooftops, unleashing a devastating...

58w ago - Sony Social Media Manager Sid Shuman has scouted locations today including Boston, New York, and the Frontier in Assassin's Creed III for PS3.
To quote: Part of Assassin's Creed III's ample appeal lies in its fastidious recreation of Revolutionary War-era America, a time of great uncertainty and even greater promise.
Developer Ubisoft Montreal has gone to considerable lengths to accurately recreate historic locations across the U.S. Eastern Seaboard, referring to era maps and historians in order to bolster the game's authenticity.
We recently spoke with lead designer Steve Masters and creative director Alex Hutchinson to learn more about the game's slavish attention to detail in recreating late 18th century colonial America. Enjoy!
"In Boston, you'll see a lot of places you could see today, from the old statehouse to Fenway Market to a pub called the Green Dragon Tavern. Using maps from the era, we recreated Boston at a 1:3 scale, including a lot of the surrounding countryside with towns like Lexington and Concord."
- Steve Masters, Lead Designer, Assassin's Creed III
"One of my favorite details is how we're bringing the crowd to...
64w ago - Ubisoft Community Developer Gabriel Graziani has explored Assassin's Creed III for PS3 today going on the hunt in the American Frontier.
To quote: The frontier of Assassin's Creed III offers an incredible bounty of wildlife for a skilled and dedicated hunter. The wilderness positively sprawls before Connor, ensuring that its boundless resources are always available.
Adventure awaits beyond the protective city walls of Boston, and I'd like to give you a glimpse of a tiny fraction of what you can expect to find within the forests and glades of the frontier.
Let's begin with the simpler game Connor can capture, and a few examples of how he can put them to use.
The animals pictured in the image above can be found roaming the countryside in AC3, and you'll find them the easiest to catch. Hares, foxes, deer, raccoons and beavers shouldn't present much danger to a canny trapper like Connor, but these animals (so frequently preyed upon by the larger predators) can be incredibly skittish and will bolt if they detect a human presence.
Maintaining such a close relationship with nature has afforded Connor some unique abilities that you can exploit to make hunting easier. Activating Eagle Sense will enable Connor to detect nearby clues which, when investigated, will identify...
