At San Diego Comic Con 2012 Ubisoft has a healthy showing of games at its booth, many of which haven't been playable to the public before, so if you're attending SDCC you should visit them. Unfortunately for us, many of the titles there, including standouts like Assassin's Creed III, were displayed in demos we already experienced at E3 2012. Fortunately for those of you out there that didn't get to see the publisher's eyes-on demo of ACIII that showed us how to expertly kill Red Coats in the colony of Massachusetts, today we have a new video that takes you through the stage with the game's creative director Alex Hutchinson. Check it out...

At SDCC we also got an early look at the new cooperative mode known as Wolf Pack. It brings togetherr two to four players to search out targets that they have to assassinate in tandem We'll know more soon, and in the meantime you can check out the above images. ACIII is out October 30 and if you want to know more, check out our list of everything we know about the main character and our recent insight into the announced Assassin's Crreed film..

    I hate to say it, but I am a little disappointed. The combat looks pretty much identical to Brotherhood and Revelations, while the bow (so far) just looks like a re-skin of the crossbow. I'll still be buying this, and I haven't seen a massive amount of gameplay so I could be overreacting, but it doesn't seem to be as massive an improvement as I was hoping (more like AC2 to ACB than AC to AC2). Still, looks like a good game.

    Good mechanics, but he seriously looks out of place. Blending in? Are they blind?

    Yeah that was kinda stupid lol, he looks nothing like anyone else yet somehow guards can't distinguish him at all. At least in the original AC there were NPCs that wore similar clothes!

    looking forward to acIII even if i couldnt get myself into playing brotherhood or revelations hope that doesnt ruin the story

    If you at least google the plots of the two games (particularly the ending to brotherhood) it shouldn't mess anything up. Brotherhood and revelations were mostly filler.

    I didn't play any after finding 1 very very repetitive, but this looks like it could be really strong. Would you recommend then at least reading up on the plot of 1 and 2?

    If you haven't played ACII, you're missing out. That game was a masterpiece of it's time. But if you plan on playing ACIII, you should definitely read up on the plot (or maybe go back and replay the games). 2007 was a long time ago.

    Cheers for the info, ACII ordered for £5, bargain.

    They don't even need to show me anymore trailers or videos of this game. They've already got my money on launch day.
