Assassin’s Creed III was announced early this month and I’m not going to lie: I need a lot of convincing. I love that the Assassin’s Creed franchise was set in a period that wasn’t covered in a Call of Duty title. But with the understanding that with each numbered title, we are actually playing through a different ancestor’s memories where for some reason it took three games to go through Ezio’s memories but whatever. Let’s forget about that fact, shall we…
So, what can we expect in Assassin’s Creed III?
Set against the backdrop of the American Revolution in the late 18th century, Assassin’s Creed III introduces a new hero, Ratohnhaké:ton, of Native American and English heritage. Adopting the name Connor, he becomes the new voice for justice in the ancient war between the Assassins and Templars. Players become an Assassin in the war for liberty against ruthless tyranny in the most stylized and fluid combat experiences in the franchise to date. Assassin’s Creed III spans the Revolutionary War, taking gamers from the vibrant, untamed frontier to bustling colonial towns and the intense, chaotic battlefields where George Washington’s Continental Army clashed with the imposing British Army.
In the below video, we meet Connor and learn about his weaponry.
