At Sony’s E3 2012 press conference, it was announced that Assassin’s Creed III will add naval battles to the series. It’s much cooler than it sounds; see it in action through the break.

The video below, via AGB and captured from the press conference livestream, shows an unexpected addition to the classic Assassin’s Creed formula.

It wasn’t Sony’s only surprise; the company announced a new PS3 console bundle to launch alongside Assassin’s Creed III on October 31, featuring exclusive free DLC.

The game is also coming to PC and Xbox 360.
