There are countless new animations

Dodging behind a large outcropping of rock, Connor narrowly dodges a barrage of rifle fire from a line of redcoat infantrymen. The shrapnel from the fire is deflected off nearby surfaces, though, and the assassin flinches away naturally as he sprints to the next hiding place.

Like the combat, the game's character animations have been totally reworked, so you'll see Connor walking, running, flinching, attacking, and more in more natural ways than ever.
