Earlier today, Ubisoft released an official trailer for Assassin’s Creed III. You might be shaking your head right now and saying “ANOTHER game, seriously?” True, Ubisoft seems to be spitting out AC games as often as teenagers have babies. However each game they’ve released was done very well, with possibly one of the craziest story lines in the history of video games. And this is not just another game they developed within a year. This has secretly been in the works for three years now, so you know it’s going to be awesome.
AC starred Altair, the young Middle-Eastern Assassin from the Crusades. AC II, Brotherhood and Revelations starred Ezio Auditore, the Italian nobleman during the Renaissance. And now, AC III takes place here in America, during the Revolutionary War, with a new character. Game Informer has released some very important information in their latest issue. Apparently the game will take place in New England, between 1753 and 1783. The mysterious new Assassin is named Connor, he’s half English and half Native American. Historical figures such as Benjamin Franklin, Charles Lee and George Fucking Washington (who apparently has a very key role) will appear in the game. There is also some good news in terms of gameplay. Ubisoft has updated their game engine to allow a larger scale, and the ability to have over a thousand characters on screen at once. You can even hunt animals in the game, to sell their fur or to eat. Connor’s armor and weapons will be upgradeable, and there will be ways to make money and buy property.
What has been revealed so far looks amazing. It’s almost unfair that we have to wait eight months to play this game. There will surely be more and more updates as time progresses, so we’ll be sure to keep posting news as it appears. The game hits stores on October 30th, so be sure to pick up a copy before you head to a Halloween party.
