Assassins Creed is one of the few games that can get me over excited. I have major love for the franchise and since seeing the E3 trailer last month I have been even more impressed with how Ubisoft is taking the series forward after it seemingly stagnated in the last 3 years. Assassins Creed 3 looks set to be on of the biggest gaming releases ever, and I for one am going to be first in line to get my hands on one. (In fact I have already pre-ordered the Freedom Edition of the game).
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.
