The Wii U launch is likely just under three months away, and one of the major third party titles coming our way is Assassin’s Creed III. They are releasing a series of 4 developer walkthroughs, this being the 2nd one of the bunch. Outside of some unique controller and UI options, it’s important to note that AC III on the Wii U will be the only version on consoles that runs in glorious 1080p. The other two will be running at 720p, though the debate about the graphic fidelity based on old demo’s is still persistent.
In this walkthrough we learn about some great features in the Naval Battle department that shows just as much detail was paid attention here as there is in the on land assassinations. Included in this detail is rapid and intense storms with giant waves that effect greatly the best time to fire your cannons and the ability to sink or board an enemy ship. The protagonist is a highly ranked captain, and the way this walkthrough presents the character makes you feel like the footage is from early in the game as this may be the origin to our newly fabled hero. Are you looking forward to Assassin’s Creed III?
