Boston is one the oldest cities in the United States, with some buildings dating back as far as 1982. It’s also one of Assassin’s Creed 3’s two main cities alongside New York. What you might not have known is that both Boston and New York have been recreated in Assassin’s Creed 3 at rougly one-third scale using real 18th century maps. Landmarks and famous buildings will be approximately placed to create an authentic vision of those cities at that point in time. That feels rather special, doesn’t it? When it’s not being utterly silly, Assassin’s Creed 3 is a real history simulator. Alex Hutchinson walks us through ancient Boston in the Assassin’s Creed 3 gameplay trailer below.

Keep an eye out for: accents, realchickens and sheep, running through a lady’s house, mobile haystacksand grabbable bayonets. Alex also mentions that crowds will respond to weather. This is, after all, British-occupied America.
