Assassin’s Creed 3: How to Unlock Animus Hacks [Cheats]
In Assassin’s Creed 3, the Animus is the massive device that allows our hero to experience the events of Connor during the revolution — but this is not true time-travel, it’s a simulation and therefore can be manipulated later in the game with these secret hacks. Unlocking these cheats isn’t easy, as you’ll have to hunt hidden Pivots around the game map. We know this sounds confusing, so just check out the guide below for a full explanation, and a full list of cheats you can unlock by taking part in this special mini-game.
