See Assassin’s Creed 3 creative director, Alex Hutchinson, meet the frontiers of a snow swept America circa 1753 head-on, as new assassin Connor Kenway gets up close and personal with forces from both sides of the American Revolutionary War.

Our advice after recently witnessing AC3 first hand at this year’s E3?:

Stick to the treetops for those snow drifts are deeper than they look; keep on the move when facing off against groups of enemies to have them soon tangled with each other; when facing musket fire be sure to grab a nearby soldier to ‘soften’ the impact; and always bring a towel – technically the wrong franchise, though never anything less than welcome advice.
