Here's a new Assassin's Creed 3 trailer demonstrating Ratonhnhaké:ton's 'Power of the Eagle' abilities.
Ratonhnhaké:ton will gain the Power of the Eagle in the next installment of the three-part 'Tyranny Of King Washington' DLC. It kicked off with the arrival of first episode, titled 'The Infamy', on February 19 on Xbox (Feb 20 on PS3).
Episode 2: The Betrayal will release on Xbox and PC on March 19 and on PS3 March 20. Season Pass holders get it at no extra cost, while everyone else can grab it for £7.99/€9.99.
"The Power of the Eagle grants him access to a unique set of gifts that enable lightning-fast reactions and adds another dimension of stealth beyond even the previous chapter's Power of the Wolf," explains Ubisoft Montreal community developer Gabe Graziani.
"Similar to the Power of the Wolf, Power of the Eagle has two different uses. First, it enables Ratonhnhaké:ton to soar from one location to another quickly and invisibly as a ghostly eagle. You activate this ability by looking in the direction you want to go - if the Power of the Eagle is available to use, you will see a reticle appear with two wings.
"Once you press the button to activate the ability, Raton will transform into an eagle and streak towards the new location completely unseen! Best of all, you can use this ability while running or jumping to dramatically increase the distance of your jumps or even save yourself from a nasty fall."
He adds, "We've included the Eagle Strike, which will enable you to power dive into a foe, ending their life with the swiftness of a deadly raptor."
