Connor's going to be a very different type of protagonist
Ubisoft already released a teaser trailer detailing Connor's background and tools, but seeing the half British/half Native American assassin do his thing has made it clear that he's from a different school than Ezio and Altair.
He's "a new kind of hero with a new personality," they said during the demo. "The goal with Connor was to make an assassin that was always in motion." Stalking zones that cause him to automatically assume a sneaking, predatory gait will go a long way to making sure of that.
