The seasons won’t be just aesthetic, as the weather will have an affect on gameplay. In the winter, heavy snow and ice will block and open new paths, and bog down movement on the ground. However, since Connor use the trees to speed through the terrain, he’ll have an advantage in the wildnerness.

Some of the major events of the 18th century that will be represented in the game include Boston Tea Party, the Boston Massacre, the Battle of Bunker Hill, the Siege of Boston, and even the Midnight Ride of Paul Revere. New York will suffer the Great Fire of 1776, and the city will show the scars of the disaster.

The game will also take a look at Connor’s life as a young boy in a Mohican village, prior to the village’s slaughter at the hand of white colonists.

This is FANTASTIC. This is exactly what I was praying for, was it not? Weather mechanics? I’m so happy I could cry.

I have to say though, I’m confused why he’s being raised in a Mohican village. He’s supposed to be Mohawk, right?
