82w ago - Ubisoft Community Developer Gabriel Graziani has unveiled the Assassin's Creed III world premiere PS3 gameplay trailer video introducing Connor today!
To quote: The World Premiere Gameplay Trailer of Assassin's Creed III is finally here! We know you've been waiting for this since the initial announcement back in March, so go ahead and watch it right now... I'll be right here when you're done.
Okay, now that you've been properly introduced to Connor, our new Assassin, there are a couple of things in this video that I'd like to call your attention to.
Firstly, there are the basics of Connor's character. He is a brutally effective Assassin, taking down his targets with speed and dexterity.
Note how he flows across the battlefield, moving from one kill to another in a seamless, unbroken pace until finally finishing his target with vicious grace. There's also Connor's Native American/English heritage, which adds complexity and richness to his motivation.

88w ago - Sony Senior Social Media Specialist Sid Shuman has shared an Assassin's Creed III Q&A today covering both the revolution and evolution of the upcoming video game for the PlayStation 3 entertainment system.
To quote: Ubisoft raised more than a few eyebrows when it revealed its bold plans for Assassin's Creed III earlier this month.
In a sharp break from the Renaissance theme that has dominated the last three games, ACIII will shift its focus to the desperate, bloody days of the American Revolution in a story that spans 30 years.
The change is scenery is matched by a change in character, with protagonist Connor Kenway taking center stage as an assassin caught between the escalating atrocities of the Patriots and the Redcoats. It's a juicy premise positively bursting with potential.
With Assassin's Creed III set to land on PS3 this October 30th, we sat down with Creative Director Alex Hutchinson to discuss the game's ambitious premise and many, many gameplay enhancements.
92w ago - Today Ubisoft Community Developer Gabriel Graziani has officially unveiled Assassin's Creed III's first PS3 trailer below!
To quote: After several years of work, by hundreds of some of the most talented developers on the planet, we are extraordinarily pleased to show you the very first official trailer for Assassin's Creed III.
Today, we'd like to offer a glimpse of the rich backdrop provided by the American Revolution, as well as sneaking in some details about our Native American protagonist: Connor.
Keep your eyes peeled for a certain historic figure you may recognize (trust me, he'll be hard to miss)... and ponder his role both in a story of the foundation of a nation and the ceaseless conflict between the Templars and Assassins.
As previously announced, Assassin's Creed III ships for PS3 on October 30, 2012.
