Will Assassin’s Creed 3 be one of the most exciting games of the year? According to this new Gamescom 2012 clip, it sure will be wavy! One of the game’s most awesome new elements is the naval combat sections, which Ubisoft is really proud of. The company got down to straight talk during last week’s Gamescom 2012, and G4 spoke to Steve Masters, Lead Designer at Ubisoft, to get to the hull of the matter about the naval warfare gameplay mechanics contained in Assassin’s Creed 3.

If not for the French at the Battle of the Chesapeake, the Revolutionary War may have last much longer than it ultimately did. As you can see above, now you will have the opportunity to engage in battles whenever Connor desires. As a key participant in this, and other, momentous battles, Connor lays waste to the British with concerted volleys of cannon fire from his vessel. Gamers will enjoy the opportunity to Captain Jack an enemies vessel to finish off hapless crews with the help of his bayonet and a shot fro his pistol. “There’s a couple mainline missions that just focus purely on the naval experience,” Masters said. “But there’s also a whole host of side content you can engage in, and get money to upgrade your boat, buy new cannons, buy new ammo, upgrade your sails and your navigation capabilities, so there’s a whole dynamic side to the game.” Assassin’s Creed 3 should surely be on your must-have list, as the game will be available for the Xbox 360 and PS3 on October 30, 2012.
