The weapons, combat and cold dead hands of Assassin’s Creed 3

1 min read


In less than three weeks, Assassin’s Creed 3 will be out. It’s a completely new take on the franchise, as the fresh approach has given way to a game that appears to be far more fluid and versatile than before. It’s one complaint that many fans have had with the game, as combat has often been a case of dodge, dodge counter-revolution, resulting in some stale scenarios. Here’s a more in depth look at the violence inherent in the game system.

There’s plenty of weapons on offer here, from the reliable tomahawk, through to a hang ‘em high rope, more axes and the signature hidden blades of the Assassins. But using several of those weapons at the same time? Now I’m intrigued.

Assassin’s Creed 3 is out, October 31, on PS3 and Xbox 360, with a PC release following later.
