Nature will be your new best friend

To get behind the redcoat lines and reach his target, Connor departed from the main battlefield and evaded troops through a patch of forested countryside. This meant climbing through trees and scaling rock walls, actions Ubisoft said will be more realistic than in other games.

They said they've been especially dedicated to making sure Connor climbs trees realistically since players started pointing out that the one thing you couldn't climb in Assassin's Creed games was the one thing you regularly could climb in real life.
