As Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed series has matured, the weapons at our disposal have become varied, giving players the chance to execute their mission in a variety of ways. As we move from the Renaissance to the age of black powder, those options will become even more diverse and exciting. The tomahawk, a symbol of Connor’s heritage, and a musket, an emblem of the American Revolution are on hand for both close-range murder and not-quite-long range death dealing. Even the hidden blade, a staple of the series since the days of Altaïr has undergone a change, and can now be wielded in a backhanded fashion.
You can check out all the different ways that you’ll be taking the fight to the Templars in this new video. October 30 is only a few short weeks away. It’s time to step back into the Animus.
