The latest issue of Game Informer magazine has revealed more info about Assassin's Creed 3.
According to the magazine, the new hero is called Connor. Connor is a half-English-half-Native-American who has been raised in the American frontier by the Mowhawk.
The player will experience Conner's childhood during the game's opening sequences. After that, the colonists attack and burn down his whole village, and that's when Conner dedicates his life to fighting tyranny (and consequently, the Templers).
On the technical side, Assassin's Creed 3 will take advantage of a brand new graphics engine and animation system that is able to render thousand-man battles in one scene. The game's controls will also see an overhaul that'll allow players to climb trees and mountain cliffs.
