Could These Be Real Assassin’s Creed III Screenshots?

A shrewd Reddit user spotted what seems to be a set of Assassin’s Creed III screenshots in a post that went up earlier today. No official confirmation has been given by Ubisoft, but they’re so good looking that it would be a huge surprise if all five of them turned out to be fake. For my money, they’re the real deal, but we’ll have to wait and see.

These screens show our new hero stalking prey of two different types: human and animal. There’s also a look at a very detailed old-time outpost, which is full of guards.

What do you think? Are these the real deal? It’ll be interesting to find out. For now, let’s just gawk at how good they look.
