The game continues the series used to offer the player an open world (open world) and a third-person view. However, the dimensions of the playing area is the largest series to date, the map of the « Frontier » alone is larger than that of Rome in Brotherhood10. The environment in which the characters move is more realistic than in other games in the series, with greater interactivity with the player’s non-player characters (NPCs), which react to the events unfolding before them (eg, a thief who steals an apple is noticed by the salesman who grabs her arm and called the guard. A bandwidth gets the fruit that has fallen and makes the trader when the soldiers forced the thief to pay its apple). NPCs have their own occupations, non-redundant, who are upset at the slightest violent intervention by the player or the guards.

The enemies are much more varied than before, since they belong to different armies: the regular British army, the navy, the Continental Army, Loyalists and Patriots. So every army and every grade has the appearance and / or a single uniform (within the same group of the same army, some soldiers displayed a hat, helmet, scarf, etc..), Coupled with technical combat characteristics, depending on whether the player has to make a soldier, grenadier, an officer, a tax collector, a Jäger, a minutemen, a drum, a flagpole, etc.. Among Native Americans, Iroquois and Algonquin peoples are represented, with Abenaki communities, Lenape, Shawnee, Mohawks, etc..

The mode of « exploration » was also changed, allowing parts of the map to be explored without requiring a synchronization point, as the game features an overhaul of how « fast moving » 4.3. The architecture of the city and the forest is American in every respect different from those of the cities of the Italian Renaissance, the developers have neglected a « vertical » model (tall buildings, churches, cathedrals, minarets, etc.). Previous opus mapping for a more « horizontal » (houses have little or no floor monuments are less tall), while greatly increasing the surface jeu9 3. Frontier also creates a great novelty, because it is almost entirely a map « organic » and « natural », while the character evolved in environments previously urbains10.
