Assassin's Creed III
First Assassin's Creed III Screenshots Leak

We're beginning to wonder whether there'll be anything left to reveal come March 5th, when Ubisoft is planning to officially lift the lid on Assassin's Creed III, as now the first batch of screenshots have leaked, showing some debut glimpses at the American Revolution backdrop.

In the shots, we get to see the currently nameless assassin sneaking through the snow, hunting deer, scoping out a camp from a treetop and walking through a town occupied by British Redcoats. It looks like both the Bluecoats and the Redcoats will be your enemy though, as we see the assassin readying his tomahawk to strike an oblivious Bluecoat.

Already Assassin's Creed III is looking like an incredibly intriguing prospect, with a new chapter in history hopefully unlocking potential for some new mission objectives and gameplay mechanics. Check out the five screenshots below, take from All Games Beta.

I like how the main character's using a regular bow rather than a crossbow from the previous two games. Not that there was anything wrong with it, it's just that it looks cooler.

Very nice. I think that this game may surprise us all, in that instead of focusing on roof top running, it'll be more focused on mountains, trees, mud etc. Still, nice to see an urban area in the second image.

All I'm concerned is the fact that we won't have as many rooftops to run as the previous, and this pics just confirms this, I hope to be wrong but I'm felling this will pretty much be a red dead redemption style ac -_-

the game looks really good. graphics are awesome. and I don't know if it's true but it seems that we can hunt, but I don't know if it is an survival thing or just a mission but it was kind of a realistic thing :)

The graphics look a LOT better than the already impressive visuals from the last few games. This is shaping up to be a very unique and entertaining look at the Assassin/Templar feud. I can't wait!

How can a red dead assassins creed be a bad thing? I think itd be cool. Esp if the mp part is close to something like red deads. It would be great to be able to team up with other and coop kill some bad guys, but that just me talking.

Where is the idea that there's no hidden blade? The bracers on his arms look stout enough to conceal it, you just don't see it in these shots.

Art looks great, but I do have concerns over the short environments.

I have to say, my first thought when I saw these screen shots was RDR. The first pic looks like the Mountainous area in RDR, the town looks a little bit like Blackwater!
But hey, that's my opinion, I'm sure this will be a fantastic game and i'll definitely be getting it! :D

assassins creed isn't about shooting, they even putting in the hidden blade or forgetting it completely.

@3 not only tress but animals two. picture 2 a dog and on the 3rd pic a deer.

@28 my greatest fear was the guns in this game I hope they don't play a big part in the game. If this wasn't the last games in the series it would turn into a sniper assassin or something like that sooner or later.

I like the idea of gun's so I can shoot all the wise-guy's of the roof's in MP, I wonder how the MP will turn out in AC3? Hopefully better not that it needs it anyway. The game looks smart looking forwards to see how it turn's out, hopefully more in the woods & mountains.

You mean colonialists?

These screens imply the Assassins didn't support either side of the war.

And that trees are climbable. Curious to see how that looks.

While this looks amazing, I can't help but think how unnecessary it is considering Desmond is no longer in his coma. Why does ACIII not have Desmond and the central character? What is the justification for getting back in the Animus again? I eagerly await the answers.

I can already see this coming- "Hot new video game allows you to kill colonial american heroes". The media will do anything to bury a game these days. But imo the game looks great, a nice fresh turn for the series should be fun.

The graphics look amazing. I was worried that tall buildings would be absent in this game but after looking at some of the screenshots, I don't think that will be a problem.

@10 I agree with you, I'm a fan of the great architecture in the previous games and am hoping they find a way to work it into this one.

I hope its more like AC1 and AC2 then AC:B or AC:R. I really couldnt stand Revelations, it was horrible. They killed off Ezio's character, and Altair's character, and it was just boring. AC1 and AC2 were amazing though, so hopefully this will be like that. I remember when AC2 first came out, I thought we would be playing as Desmond for sure in AC3, but guess not.

@42 We're going to play as Desmond, just not for the entire game. A game with only Desmond in it would of been really boring and nobody would of bought it. To fit the story, a game explaining the end of Desmond's story MUST come out before December 2012, or else we'll be playing as Desmond in the past instead of the future.

I think they might do something where for the Assassin's story there our two endings: 1) The REAL ending where you help the Blucoats (or Americans) fight off the Redcoats and send them packing back to Great Britain!

or 2) The Alternate Ending where you have been helping the Redcoats squash the Bluecoats so that there is no more rebellion for the British Empire.

Or the Assassin just doesn't like us European Americans at first lolz Cause I can't really imagine a game being allowed where you kill Americans in a story mode (cause to be honest, if you have played CoD and was on a MP map where there were Americans and you were on the opposite side, like the Spetznaz, then we already have games where you kill Americans. Just saying).

If your worried about no hidden blade don't worry. Look at the cover art, it looks like there is a blade under one of his bracers.

@45 thats prob a bit 2 simplistic for an AC game. I feel it'll b more like a native american assassin who plays both sides and may i add btw Native American FTW! :)

I'm not even done playing Revelations yet and I see this. Glad to know my obsession will be satiated again in the future.
