Earlier this week, Ubisoft announced that players would be able to unlock the first gameplay trailer from Assassin’s Creed III by linking to the game from its Facebook and Twitter accounts. Now, enough people has linked to the game and the trailer has been released.

Assassin’s Creed III is the opening chapter of two new stories: one of Connor, the newest Assassin, and one of a new nation, both in an epic fight for land and freedom. In this gameplay world premiere, travel through the early American city of Boston, battle man and beast alike as you explore the vast open frontier, and witness to the intensity and excitement of the Battle of Bunker Hill — one of the most famous battles of all time.

Assassin’s Creed III is developed and published by Ubisoft. The game will launch on October 31 this year. In the following video you can watch 2 minutes and 10 seconds of footage from an early version of the game.

Enjoy!
