Check out Colonial Boston in Assassin's Creed 3 first look

Gameplay demo shows new moves and redcoats among Boston's streets

The end of October can't get here soon enough for fans of the Assassin's Creed video game series. The third version of the game features a new locale, colonial America, and a new assassin, half-European, half-Native American Connor. In this video, Alexander Hutchinson, the game's creative director, shows some of the gameplay features, as well as the buildings in and around Boston.

As an American Revolutionary War history buff, I'm just as excited in exploring the colonial areas and landmarks as I am about knifing a redcoat.
