Also, kind of off-topic but somehow I'm downloading AC2 from PSN for free. A year or two ago I bought AC1 on PSN, so I think it's muddled that purchase with the new AC1 & AC2 bundle which just came to PSN today. Unless Sony giving it away for free on purpose (which I find hard to believe).

Around 30% of missions will take place in the Frontier.
Frotiner is 4km2 - 1.5 x size of Rome in Assassin’s Creed 2.
The game has ‘double’ the production capacity of the ‘Ezio Trilogy’.
Rope Dart weapon is confirmed, allowing for some very brutal tree-based kills.
Game takes place over 30 year period 1753 – 1783.
Connor joins the Brotherhood in 1770 – suggests pre-Assassin gameplay.
Everything in the Frontier is traversable.
Climbing system based on real-life rock climbing.
Terrain and weather has a direct effect on Connor – the snow slows you down to no end.
Revamped control system.
Assassin’s Creed 3 will be about Connor seeking ‘justice’.
Connor’s Mohawk village was razed as a child.
Mohawk villages feature in game

Vastly improved cloth textures.

Weather affects combat, muskets don’t work in rain.
Greater NPC interaction with player/eachother.
Revamped crowd AI – NPCs will come much closer to Connor than before.
Waller T. Patton, Confederate Lieutenant Colonel, as NPC.
City streets wider than before – historically accurate, creating new urban challenges.
Building interiors – short-cuts can be taken through some buildings
Siege of Boston, Battle of Bunker Hill both confirmed as in-game events.

So that's ingame footage? Not bad. I wanna see the tree climbing in action more though.

I would choose world war 2, because It seems like it would fit in the best. And It would be pretty cool to be an Assassin in World war 2.

In Another words It could be like Real life assassin ready to fight with his Gun in a World war 2 death-match.

I haven't been so excited for a game in a while. Have they even showcased multiplayer yet?
