Assassin's Creed III Achievements reveal more gameplay features

The list of Achievements for the Xbox 360 version of Assassin's Creed III has slithered out onto the internet, revealing story details and info on some of the additional gameplay features. Needless to say, if you're allergic to spoilers you may want to look away...now.

For the main storyline, there are twelve memory sequences in all while secret achievements give hints as to what will happen to series hero Desmond Miles during the modern day segments of the game.

For the most part you'll be playing as frontier hero Connor during the Revolutionary War, and there are Achievements for decorating his home with Benjamin Franklin's inventions and for inviting other characters to share your homestead. You'll also be able to play games such as Fanorona, Morris and Bowls at this safe haven.

Naval battles play a big part, and there's Gamerscore to be earned by upgrading your ship and undertaking bonus privateer missions. You'll also be able to join clubs, trade animal pelts and "unlock the mystery of Oak Island", whatever that may mean.

A surprisingly small number of Achievements are available for multiplayer, so those who prefer to stay offline won't find too big a hole in their Gamerscore. Customise and rank up a character to level 20, win a multiplayer match and unlock a bonus video and you'll have earned everything on offer in that side of the game, at least where Achievements are concerned.

It's a dizzying spread of things to do, clearly, and that's without even touching on the meat of the Assassin's Creed series ?the sneaking, the climbing and the stabbing.

Assassin's Creed III is released on November 23rd for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC. A Wii U version will follow shortly after.
