Ubisoft on Assassin’s Creed III: ‘We have to refresh everything’

The forthcoming Assassin’s Creed III has been hailed as a new start for the franchise, not least by your very own Electronic Theatre. While many gamers got tried of the re-treading of familiar ground on an annual basis by the time Assassin’s Creed: Revelations arrived, Assassin’s Creed III aims to do away with that image of unnecessary annual iteration by taking a huge leap forward. Electronic Theatre recently sat down with Ubisoft’s Matt Turner, part of the Assassin’s Creed III writing team, to find out just how they intend to do this. (Assassin's Creed III, Matt Turner, PC, PS3, Wii U, Xbox 360)

Hope they have added challange to the combats and more deep to the stealth. Can't wait to see this for myself!

Supposedly from the hands on previews I've read Conner isn't the same bloated superman killing machine Ezio was from Revelations. No health potions, cant restore health in combat, combat is bashed on timing attacks properly as opposed to mashing the attack button. Fleeing is often times the better alternative to killing a dozen enemies. Here's hoping.

From the combat scenes in this preview, it seems that mashing the attack button is still very much viable. Although the the inability to restore your heath in combat sounds good.

Aw crap. Far Cry 3 or Assassin's creed 3 I don't know!

Both look pretty boss.
