Admittedly, the Assassin's Creed story has gone a bit berserk. But in the newest DLC for Assassin's Creed III you can turn into an eagle, because obviously that's historically accurate. 

When you download The Tyranny of King Washington DLC, you'll be able to access a brand new special ability. You can learn to turn into a silvery eagle seemingly made of lightning. From this trailer, we see our heroic assassin being able to swiftly turn into an eagle to cover short distances from rooftop to rooftop. You'll also be able to perform incredible takedowns by swooping onto your enemies for a devastating eagle strike. Your days of waiting for enemies to come close enough to a building for you to fall onto their throats with two arm blades is over. Previously inaccessible baddies will now be fumbling around the ground making gurgling sounds.

If this is only a taste of things to come in the Assassin's Creed series, then we're anxious to see more magical powers to complement the already bonkers story.

What do you think of the new powers?
