Ubisoft has released the third episode in its fascinating four-part documentary series on Assassin’s Creed III. The latest episode focuses on new hero Connor and explores his mixed heritage and motivations for becoming an assassin.

Part three also reveals how Connor’s ambidexterity lets him fight equally well with both hands. He’s also an expert at free running and free climbing, allowing him to navigate rugged terrain at a rapid pace. Ubisoft created over an hour of new animations to express Connor’s unique fighting style and Parkour-inspired moves, and also reworked the climbing system that was used in previous Assassin’s Creed titles.

Take a look at episode three below:

Assassin’s Creed III will be released for PS3 and Xbox 360 on October 30th in the US and October 31st in European territories. The game will also form part of the Wii U’s launch line-up, releasing on November 18th in the US and November 30th in European territories. A PC version is expected on November 20th in North America and November 23rd in Europe.
