Assassins Creed is about to get a hell of a lot more interesting, as the third game in the epic franchise will take place in America during the revolutionary war! This is pretty freakin' mind-blowing especially for a history buff like myself. I love the history of the revolutionary war and being able to play in this history of time, humping through trees, and killing soldiers sounds really fun to me. This is going to be such a different game than the other Assassins Creed games as the setting has drastically changed.
Ubisoft has released the first trailer for Assassins Creed III revealing what's in store for us, and it looks incredibly badass. Chief executive officer at Ubisoft, Yves Guillemot, had this to say:
Assassin’s Creed III features the franchise’s most expansive setting so far, along with an exciting new hero and exponentially more gameplay. Whether you’re a longtime fan of Assassin’s Creed or if you’re new to the franchise, you’re going to be blown away by the scale and marvel of Assassin’s Creed III.
I'm blown away already. The game is set to be released on October 31st, 2012, and I'm looking forward to it. Watch the reveal trailer below, and let us know what you think about this new setting and time? Do you embrace the change?
