Assassin’s Creed III Previews

Last week journalists and community members hit the Freedom Trail in Boston and got hands-on with Assassin’s Creed III.

Assassin’s Creed III pulled out all the stops to envelop journalists and community members in our Boston Preview Event experience! Find an event recap and a full list of preview coverage from around the web below.

The event began with more hands-on gameplay of Assassin’s Creed III than anyone has experienced to date. Single-player content included an entire Memory Sequence worth of brawling, creeping stealthily around and leaping through treetops. We rounded out the day with an experiential tour that had journalists and our community jogging around Boston in search of landmarks and the famous founding fathers from the American Revolution.

The first half of day two was spent delivering beat-downs, tomahawk slashes, and Assassin’s Creed III’s all-new multiplayer mode: Wolf Pack. Wolf Pack lets up to four players to cooperatively assassinate their way through multiple waves of targets while bonus points are awarded for teamwork and flawlessly synchronized kills. For some of the journalists and fans there it (including our Community Developer Gabe)it was their first hands-on with Wolf Pack. Gabe declared Wolf Pack “positively EPIC, even if we only made it to the fourteenth wave”.

The second half of day two featured more hands-on with Assassin’s Creed III’s and Assassin’s Creed III Liberation. Gabe sat in with our community members to make sure they had help with anything they needed (and to “borrow” a controller now and again to show off some of Connor’s more lethal combinations).
