Assassin's Creed III's Connor (aka Ratohnhaké:ton) may wear the Order's robe and perch on rooftops, but that doesn't mean he's a clone of his Animus ancestors. In fact, as these newly leaked screenshots from Ubisoft's sequel suggest, Ezio and Altair could learn a lot about rocking the Tomahawk and pistol from their 18th century descendant. See for yourself in the gallery above.

The new images were spotted on NeoGAF and look to be a mix of CGI stills and touched-up screenshots. Regardless, if the final build is anything like the images depicted – and Ubisoft is being truthful when it says this game has been in development for nearly three years (read: Assassin's Creed III coming October 30) – fans are in for a treat.

This week, Ubisoft revealed Assassin's Creed III's multiplayer was assigned to Ubisoft Annecy, the same studio responsible for crafting the frag modes in Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood and contributing to the multiplayer in Assassin's Creed: Revelations. If these single player campaign images are any indication, we can expect equally pretty things from Connor's online adventures.

Assassin's Creed III is in development for PS3, Xbox 360, and PC for an October 30 release in North America, followed by an October 31 arrival in the UK. There's a Wii U version in the works too, though that doesn't have a release date yet.

    Wishing it was here sooner, but they can take as much time as they need. I havn't fully enjoyed AC since II,since brotherhood was decent and I skipped revelations. And I hope this becomes more about the actual assassinations and other important parts, and less of the errand boy stuff, and I really hope it doesn't require you to get into the assassin recruitment stuff. Wasn't that much fun for me.

    Nothing like killing some Redcoats to pass the time.

    And nobody wants to know what "Gremio Sombras" in the bottom right corner means? Sorry, I guess you're all Latin scholars and I'm the only dumbass :-D Also - this looks amazing.

    Gremio Sombras is a Spanish AC fansite.

    Love the 5th one... with the view from the rooftops of the snow-covered city.

    I'm pretty stoked for this to come out. I've wanted tree climbing for the longest time.
