"We rebuilt the combat system from the ground up. Everything from the player strategy, to enemy types, to animations and camera implementation is new. Connor’s combat system is based around a two handed fighting style, so he uses either tomahawk and knife, assassin’s blade and knife, as well as many other combinations. The core for us is a redesign of the health system, so that instead of having health units and needing to heal after combat, you now have a regenerating health system which means you can’t regain health during combat – you need to escape and rest. This exponentially increases the challenge." - Ubisoft Montreal's creative director Alexander Hutchinson
