Now that a handful of games have been delayed into 2013, Assassin’s Creed III has pretty much become my most anticipated big budget title of this year, and this awesome demo, which showcases a number of new mechanics — as well as a completely revamped combat system — has reinforced that.
The demo takes you on a tour through Boston, one of the major cities in Assassin’s Creed III. I’m loving the new touches — the increasingly dynamic combat chains, the momentum based scrambles up angled surfaces, the increasingly interactive world.
Assassin’s Creed II was an incredible leap from the first, and remains one of my favourite games of this generation. I’m hoping Assassin’s Creed III provides a similar step up. Looks promising so far.
