Close combat has been modified, allowing Connor to dual-wield weapons and take down multiple opponents at once and players no longer need to manage the lock-on mechanic. Aiding this, Connor has access to a wide range of weapons which include muskets, swords, pistols, native weapons such as the tomahawk and bow and arrow, a rope dart used to pull foes or hang them, while on a tree as well as the Hidden Blades.
In addition, the left Hidden Blade has a folding mechanism for blocking attacks, skinning an animal, and performing high-profile assassinations.
Human shields can be used against firing lines of enemies. Medicine is no longer used as health recovers automatically. Stealth is also revamped, allowing players to use natural elements such as tall grass and trees to hide, along with the ability to blend between any two people.
Assassin's Creed III features new weather simulations such as snowfogand rain. The seasons can also change i. Snowfall can reduce visibility for the player and enemies, aiding stealth. Unlike the past games, this one includes animals varying from domestic horses, cows, dogs to wild deer, wolves, bears.
The wild ones are found in the Frontier, and can be hunted for meat or marrow in order to be sold. The quality of the kill determines the price, encouraging the player to hunt silently. For this, traps and bait can also be used. Economy is now based on the Davenport Homestead, which also acts as Connor's adoptive home.
The site can be visited by people such as carpenters, tailors etc.
Helping and interacting with these non-player characters NPCs will encourage them to settle in the Homestead. From there on, the player can craft various items and trade with them, and then sell the goods to the cities via caravan. The player can also help them build relationships with each other, which will then result in the formation of a small village. The player can also upgrade the Homestead manor as well as Connor's ship, the Aquila.
A revamped version of Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood 's recruitment feature returns as players can enlist citizens to the Assassins' cause by completing "Liberation" missions. They also have a much larger skill set, which allows them to start a riot, provide a covert escort, act as a personal bodyguard etc. Other side missions include collecting Almanac pages, exploring underground tunnels to locate fast-travel stations, joining hunting and fighting clubs, investigating frontiersman rumors about UFOs and Sasquatch"peg-leg" missions in which Connor goes to underground forts and wastelands to uncover the legend of Captain Kidd 's treasure, and others.
Assassin's Creed III also features naval expeditions.
Using Connor's warship, the Aquila, the player can navigate the high seas. Control of the ship relies on environmental factors such as wind direction and speed, local presence of storms, high waves, and rocks. Engagements are by cannon, with broadsides covering both flanks of the ship, swivel guns that can be used to damage smaller ships which can also be boarded to find treasure, and chain shots from the broadsides as well to take down the masts of larger ships and disable them.
The Aquila is used in the side missions known as " Privateer missions" and is also used in some of the main missions. The Wii U version of the game has extra features. The player has the ability to change weapons on the go and the map is always visible on the Wii U Gamepad.
With this feature enabled, the main screen is redirected to the Wii U Gamepad. Online multiplayer returns in this installment by Ubisoft Annecy. It also features Domination, a team mode where players will have to capture certain areas of the map, protecting them from the opposing team.
Setting[ edit ] Following the events of Assassin's Creed: Connor is caught up in the Assassins' conflict with the Templar order when his Native American village is attacked by the Templars, who intend to seize control of the newly forming country. Connor's story spans through two decades of his life.
There were whole manuals dedicated to it; it was a martial art in the most literal sense. Bears Are Bad News: Wilderness encounters may include bears, which Connor can fight and collect their pelts to trade or bait into attacking enemy patrols.
Beat Them at Their Own Game: Part of what makes the Colonial Templars' Grand Master such a deadly foe is that he's received the same training as Connor. In fact, this could be said to work both ways, as the Templars have no qualms about adopting Assassin tactics if it aids them in achieving their goals.
Vidic asks Desmond for the Apple. Because I Said So: Said by Haytham to Connor at one point, when Connor asks why he should be the one chasing a soldier down, continuing the theme of Connor being treated like a petulant child. Been There, Shaped History: Like Ezio before him, Connor does this. Beethoven Was an Alien Spy: Par the course for this series. Contrary to what you may expect, however, the Freemasons didn't have any grandiose secrets or extensive history.
Connor's main story arc begins when Charles Lee burns his village, killing his mother in the process. The arc ends some twenty years later, when his vengeance finally comes to fruition. Connor visits New York after the fire of Desmond visits the Big Apple for a story mission. After almost falling off a tall building, Shaun tells him to hold position because of the view of the city's night skyline.
Desmond is rather annoyed by this. Amusingly, data from Desmond's phone — which you can find through hacking computers in the sequel — includes a picture he took of himself with that same view as the background. Much like in Revelationsthere isn't a definitive Big Bad. In the present, the Apocalypse has been prevented but Desmond is dead and Juno has been unleashed upon the world. In the past, Connor has successfully slain all the major Templars in the Colonies and the British have left, but Achilles dies soon after, Connor's people have been forced out by the new government, the "spirit" is finished with him and his people, and there is still oppression in the land.
William Johnson and Haytham both give one. Desmond also gives one to his father William Miles near the end of the game when he rescues his father from Abstergo and kills Warren Vidic and Daniel Cross in the process.

At Haytham's funeral, Lee captures Connor but refuses to kill him — instead taunting that he will destroy everything he holds dear first.
He then leaves Connor to be beaten by some random mooks, from whom Connor predictably escapes and murders Lee. Meanwhile, inWarren Vidic asks Desmond for the Apple. Suffice to say he got way more than he bargained for. The game sports a revamped system for recruiting Assassins and sending them on missions for money as well as an interesting trade system where you have people who live on your homestead provide different goods to sell for profit Even if you do wish to get money by trading, you're better off selling the furs you get from hunting rather than doing any crafting.
Also, regarding the new Assassin training system, the introduction of the new abilities means that in order to level them up faster, you're supposed to rely more on using those abilities rather than sending them off to time-consuming but not-so-rewarding missions a minute mission earns a XP reward, while simply using an Assassin to kill one guard yields about 40 XP and can be repeated after less than 30 seconds.
Both Sides Have a Point: Connor comes to see the positives of the Templar beliefs, enough to seek a truce, but not enough to actually compromise on his Creed.

Averted beautifully, except for one instance during the Captain Kidd missions, where someone fires a single-shot muzzle loading musket onscreen One of the "methods of salvation" attempted by the First Civilization was to transfer their minds into a computer for storage against the apocalypse. The problem they had was not how to get in, but how to get out. It is strongly implied that Juno, Minerva, or both underwent this process, and that Desmond's sacrifice is in some way Juno's ticket out.
The Homestead missions are this, depending on when you play them. It's certainly a breather to find Connor smiling and helping his friends with their problems compared to the grim campaign. Bribing Your Way to Victory: You can buy Erudito Coins for real-world money which allow you to unlock most but not all unlockable items regardless of fulfilling conditions to unlock them for purchase for Abstergo Credits like reaching a certain level.
Ties directly into Bribing Your Way to Victory as Erudito's messages to the players of the game all carry a heavy anti-Abstergo and anti-capitalist message. Yet, the buy-for-real-world-money currency the game uses for its application of that trope? Connor can use enemies as shields against massed musket fire, then close with the remaining soldiers before they can reload. It also features in one dual execution move, where Connor knocks down one soldier, then grabs the other to block the knocked down soldier's musket shot.
Connor has a dual execution move that defies this trope: It is similar to one of Ezio's moves in Brotherhood, wherein he counters a soldier by blocking him, then shooting him through and killing the soldier behind him as well.
But for Me, It Was Tuesday: Charles Lee at first fails to recognize Connor; it takes a face-to-face confrontation for him to remember that little Native boy whose village he hadn't burned so long ago.
But Not Too Foreign: Connor is half Mohawk, half British. He can use this to his advantage; at the advice of his mentor Achilles who is blackhe accepts the name "Connor" and tries to pass off as being of Spanish or Italian descent.
Better a Spaniard than a native But What About the Astronauts? Mentioned during a modern day segment. Shaun says with everything going nuts thanks to the sun, there's talk of bringing the crew of the international space station back to Earth. Franklin attempted to shift the attention to one of the rebels that he had captured, but Washington was not interested.
He ordered both prisoners to be executed, along with several citizens taken at random. Franklin objected to the idea, but backed down once Washington called him out on his doubts. Afterwards, the King told Putnam that if he can deal with the rebels in Boston, Washington would grant the command of the city to him, on account of Franklin losing his conviction. There, he met another spirit animal, the eagle.
After fending off the bobcat attack, the eagle granted him the power of Eagle Flight. After eliminating the opposition and leaving the warehouse, the pair caught up to Franklin, who sent more of his men to stall them while he tried to escape.
There, Adams explained his rebels were planning to leave Boston or his rebels would be crushed. However, he wanted to rescue some prisoners, but feared Franklin would ambush them. The rebel leader was outraged, and wanted Franklin killed, despite his protests that he wanted to atone for what he did.
Franklin said he would help enter Washington's palace, but Adams bitterly refused his help. The Assassin was more receptive to Franklin's help and set off on errands to craft a key to Washington's palace, retrieving a special metal from the blacksmith David Walston and plans Franklin had given a soldier at the tavern.
They found Robert Faulknerwho struck out at Franklin for confiscating the Aquila from him.
He held off soldiers firing at the sailors as they swam to the drifting ship. He listened as Putnam expressed regret for not fighting off the Apple's influence, and then died. The two warriors subsequently dove into the pier, dodging gunfire. Faulkner declared they were in sight of the city, and the two men gazed in awe as they looked upon Washington's New York Pyramid for the first time.
