Going by what we know about the 18th century, that Connor would find himself on a boat in Assassin's Creed III comes as no surprise. In fact, he's on many boats, killin' your crew, and being a major pain all around.
The latest trailer from Ubisoft, titled "Naval Warfare," features a bit from the game when Connor is caught in a storm on a ship. Of course, being an Assassin, he's not going to let wind and rain keep him from slitting a few throats. And, as always, it's nice to see details like era-specific outfits and all that recreated in Assassin's Creed.
Assassin's Creed III will be released October 30 to PS3 and Xbox 360. The PC version was recently pushed back 20 days, to no one's great surprise.
