Posted Mon Mar 5, 2012 at 08:30 AM PST by Dick Ward

The game includes notable historical figures, a massive map and a new way of taversing it.

There are few games more hotly anticipated than 'Assassin's Creed III,' and the latest information reveal is likely just going to get people more excited. We already know that it's set during the mid to late 1700s, but the latest issue of Game Informer reveals so much more.

For starters, there will be a whole new way of traversing terrain. Much of the game will take place in the wilderness, so the usual method of scaling buildings won't work out. Instead, you'll be climbing trees and leaping off of cliffs to evade foes.

Combat is all about offense and momentum - no standing around waiting to reposte an attack. You'll be able to use the terrain to your advantage to set up attacks and, of course, you'll still have a hidden blade at your disposal.
