Connor Takes To The Skies In The Latest Assassin's Creed III DLC

Connor is a formidable opponent, even without supernatural abilities.

Okay, so he can fall from ridiculous heights and suffer not a scratch by landing in a haystack. And he can enable this fancy eagle vision that lets him pick out targets in a crowd. But it's not as if he can shape-shift like a werewolf...until now.

The ongoing Tyranny of King Washington expansion content for Assassin's Creed III features a big-time twist on history, as you can easily gather from the title. And in the next episode, The Betrayal, Connor will earn the ability to change into an eagle. What easier way to elude your pursuers during one of those irritating chase sequences? This new video gives you a sneak peek at the fresh skill, which is bound to come in handy. The Betrayal will be available on March 19, by the way.

Talk about your strange American Indian skinwalker references.

Not precisely (if I may be a bit pedantic and hopefully accurate).

The "skinwalker" term usually refers specifically to a Navajo legend of an evil kind of shapeshifter. The idea of shape-changing has been a prevalent notion in many indigenous cultures, and it is more often than not a power of benevolent shamans.

I'd say Connor is a shape-shifter here, though there is certainly an undertone from the first DLC that he's gotten this power through dubious means and it has a real corruptive potential.

That's all cool and all but shouldn't this go on another game and not AC? It kinda got ridiculous, just saying.

They could've used this power and make a new IP...

An enraged Native-American whose village was obliterated that for reasons unknown (at the moment) could transform into different animals to ravage his enemies as he saw fit...

What say you? :D

That would have to be a Moral Kombat spinoff with Nightwolf's Animalities.

I could dig that.

It depends. At this point, I agree that it is a late addition to the lore that seems to be out of agreement with what has been established so far.

However, if by the end of the DLC chapter they relate the "red willow" thingy that Connor used to gain this power back to the main lore in some way -- as in, this tree is somehow pulling its power from an artifact of the ancient people who made the Apple, the ruins, etc. -- then I think they can get away with it.
