Assassin's Creed III done released a big pile of video last night, along with four new screenshots. There's a silly CGI trailer that helps no one, but also a great big chunk of in-game footage that shows off the sneaky, jumpy, stabby and animal-hurty ways of a far more rural Assassin, and then some of the ship combat.
