Quickly jumps to Assassins Creed 3. “This is revolution”. Wee see the protagonist steal his horse back from the soldiers like it was nothing – followed by a quick take down of them all. The new assassin goes by the name Connor. Another trailer is being shown, now in the snow, taking down a deer – and a wolf emerges. Now for some gameplay. After a few dialogues, the player jumps on a horse and rides into the woods, and bumps into a small army of enemies – fight ensues. Back to some climbing that every fan of the series love – but not on buildings, this time on rocks, ending up in the city. The player manages to take down his target from the air, and the crowd goes wild.
You will be fighting both sides of the war, and the game spans over 30 years. Another trailer starts with more melee kills, both animals and humans, rounding off the show of AC3.

Yves Guillemot enters the stage, and starts talking in his – as always – fun voice. A quick presentation and a trailer starts.
A presenter talks about the game we just was presented to – something about a virus, an OS that controls a whole city including lights, and so much more. Gameplay session ensues. A futuristic and dark city is presented in a very slow pace. Suddenly, the player takes out the surrounding cell phones, making the guard move away from the door. The player enters into a gallery of some sort with a lot of visitors – and meets up with an asian-looking guy, talking to him for a moment. The player mingles, and suddenly the player takes out his device from before and listening to a phone call nearby – and meets up with the guy that was on the phone, killing him.
The player is now outside, and chooses to make some cars crash into each other by changing the lights in the intersection. Of course as a part of finding his target. You know, assassins needs to be paid too.

“Connection is power”
Aisha Tyler rounds off the showcase, wishing everyone a great E3 show.
