This ‘seems’ like a new port. Not only do we get a new female assassin named Aveline, we are going to be dropped into New Orleans. According to Game Informer, you will be able to explore all of 1800’s Orleans without a loading screen, but the outlining swamps and even pop into Mexico for a bit. Wow. based on the magazine, it seems Aveline will have similar weapons as Connor does, machete, pistols and grenades, and will even cross Connor some point in the story line. BTW, I read that the Vita’s rear and touchpads will be utilized for pickpocketing. Nice touch.
And if you saw the trailer, Connor took on a bear, well, Aveline will be tackling wildlife creatures like alligators who “hide beneath murky waters.” BTW, check out the assassin 3 trailer trailer if you have not. I also put the older one at the end of this post.
Credit Ubisoft for going the extra mile here and further credit for creating a woman assassin. I fully expect to see a trailer come out of E3. I’m keeping my eyes open.
