Kill as many target NPCs as possible within time limit.

Kicking off the second day of this weekend’s San Diego Comic-Con, Ubisoft has released a direct-feed version of the Assassin’s Creed III Boston walkthrough commentated by creative director Alex Hutchinson.

Additionally, Ubisoft lifted the lid on a brand new multiplayer mode, Wolfpack, which tasks a team of 2-4 players to take out as many target NPCs as possible within a given time limit. As you kill more NPCs, the time limit is increased. And unlike the single-player story, NPCs do not react to your kills, meaning you can go about killing them any way you like, no stealth required. GameSpot has a more in-depth preview of the mode. We have some screenshots at the gallery.

Watch the Boston walkthrough below.

    WOW!!!

    Man, looks really good.
    Now if people would shut up about killing British dudes…

    • Locksus

      It’s not the fact that we’re killing British people in the game. People are annoyed because Ubisoft has (seemingly) falsely advertised this game as they have said that Connor is on no one’s side and yet in every trailer and gameplay video we’ve only seen him killing redcoats and not a single american soldier.

      • xMCXx

        Well, it’s about America gaining their independence.
        So, I thought it was clear that the Red Coats are the enemies.

        But if Ubisoft said otherwise…

        I’m sure that when the game is actually released, there will be missions where you won’t see eye to eye with the colonists. Besides, Assassins help those that are being oppressed. This is the American Revolution, a time where Britain bullied half of the world with their colonization, so of course there’s going to be redcoat death.

        I saw a video with creative director Alex Hutchinson, and he was asked that very question. His answer was a good one, he said the marketing team was taking its own approach in terms of how to sell the game.

        In other words, they choose what material to show in many of the trailers and promotional items. I’m not so sure Hutchinson likes the way they are trying to sell the game, he admitted that it seemed like what he and the creative team was saying didn’t match up with the footage.

        I believe when the game comes out, what he and the team has said will be proven true. I believe the game is more than just America gaining its independence. Assassins creed is never that simple.

        I’m going to believe in the team, I’ve already got the game on Pre-Order.

          Ah, thanks for clearing that up :)
          I trust the word of the developer ^_^

            No problem. The best thing to remember is what the heart of AC games are about. Assassins versus Templar’s. Who the good guys and bad guys are is not always crystal clear.

            • Locksus

              Aye, you’re right. Connor’s main goal is to eliminate the Templars. Whether they’re British or not doesn’t matter.
              I forgot to consider that.

      He kills the British (redcoats) because he is on the American’s side of course. Haven’t you seen the AC3 trailers in movie theaters yet? If you watch the trailer you can see that he is obviously on the American’s side.

        Yes and no, it’s a bit more complicated than that. Nothing is that simple in the world of Assassins Creed.

        For example, Connor, is an Assassin of Native American and British descent. He was raised among his mother’s tribe as a child.

        Anyone familiar with this time period knows that the Native American tribes were treated cruelly by almost everyone.

        Events from his childhood prompted him to seek justice for his people and fight tyranny, which leads to him becoming an Assassin.

        He is a man torn, he only wants to protect the innocent, but its not easy to forget the past.

        This quote says quite a bit – “On this land, I am torn. Part of me wants to fight and repel all outsiders. The other part of me is the outsider.”

        Like I said, its not quite so simple when it comes to Connor.

    This looks amazing

    No stealth required? That doesn’t sound to exciting…..

      It really depends on how you play it. They choose to attack and make the guards aware of Connor in that video.
