Assassins Creed 3 creative director Alex Hutchinson has told the Official PlayStation Magazine that the combat system in Assassins Creed 3 has been completely redone, and that the main protagonist Connor will be able to wield 2 weapons at once to dish out maximum damage to his adversaries. Assassins Creed 3 will be heading to the Wii U sometime later this year.
“The combat system in Assassin’s Creed III has been completely redone. We burned it to the ground and we’re building it back up”.
“At its base it’s a two-handed combat system, so all of the weapons are two-handed. Some of the cool new combinations include a tomahawk and knife. Connor also has a bow.”
“At first our research said basically that bows had been replaced by guns, but what we found was that a lot of the different tribes were still using them to hunt from horseback because the guns were so inaccurate. We thought it was a cool weapon, and still historically accurate”.
