You’ve seen the CG trailer from E3. You’ve seen the gameplay demo. You’ve even seen that mind-blowing naval battle at sea. Here’s something you haven’t seen yet from Assassin’s Creed III: the commentary E3 attendees heard while getting a one-on-one presentation of the game behind closed doors.
You know how when you listen to a director or actor’s commentary track on your favorite movie, you gain a whole new perspective on the movie’s creative inspiration, the reasons why certain narrative choices were made, and the great lengths that the production crew went to to bring the movie to life? That’s what you’ll get from this insightful commentary from Alexander Hutchinson, Assassin’s Creed III‘s creative director.
Most interesting to me was learning all of the challenges Ubisoft’s team had to overcome in crafting the moves of new hero Connor Kenway, and the wildly different world that he inhabits (compared to past assassins). Connor can do things that Ezio and Altair could never dream of, and the ways he can interact with and move through the wilderness are beautifully honed and truly unique to him.
Can’t wait for October!
