Alex Hutchinson, the creative director on Assassin’s Creed III, told us recently that players can expect some major gameplay secrets when they get their hands on Assassin’s Creed III later this year.
“We’ve managed to keep some secrets,” he said. “The games industry is terrible for secrets, and I’m kind of bored of working on things where everybody’s seen everything before we launch. So we wanted to keep a bunch of secrets… up to ship. There’s some cool stuff. If you buy the game there’s two or three really big systems that we won’t talk about unless I’m defeated by marketing in a pitched battle.”
The naval battles reveal at E3 was one such secret (and “amazing” that it didn’t leak, “given that was something we’ve been developing for two and a half years already”), so we can’t wait to find out what the rest are. Any guesses? Weigh in below.
