The Animus takes us back to 1775 in the Colonial America. This time Desmond Miles follows the memories of Connor Kenway (AKA Ratonhnhaké:ton) half-Mohawk half-English outlaw, fighting the Templars and encountering historical personalities like George Washington, Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson or Charles Lee. The 30 years timespan story takes place in cities of Boston and New York and settlements of Lexington, Concord and Charlestown.

  • time-break: close combat time is slowed during blocks to allow better counter-attack maneuvering
  • human shielding: enemies can be taken against the line of fire
  • dual wielding and firearms: muskets and rifles can be used as firearms or as melee weapons
  • mobile hiding places: moving wagons and carts can also be used for hiding
  • free-running: improved, more fluid
  • exploration: not required for a viewpoint synchronization to reveal areas anymore
  • hunting: animals can be hunt for their skins in the wilderness which can be sold – the value is determined how much the pelt has been damaged by the inflicted wounds
  • weather conditions: depending on the weather, Templars and soldiers move differently
  • Homestead: the Davenport Homestead is a manor and a small town which can be improved by convincing people to settle near the Homestead. The raw goods and crafts produced by the craftsmen can raise the income sell by caravans. This is a sort of an advancement of the Assassin Den feature introduced in Assassin’s Creed: Revelations.
