Assassin's Creed 3 first gameplay trailer debuts

We've heard quite a bit about Assassin's Creed 3, from its new protagonist and setting to the new tools we'll be able to use for efficient kills. But seeing is believing, as the saying goes, and a new trailer weaves gameplay into story details on Connor's internal struggles with belonging.

Being a trailer for an Assassin's Creed game, of course, that quiet solitude and introspection is punctuated by lots and lots of stabbing. Connor tears through about a dozen Redcoats like tissue paper, meets an angry bear, and traverses the wilderness and Colonial cities. Check out the trailer below.
