Is This the New Face of Assassin’s Creed?
Whispers of a Colonial American backdrop were heard as soon as Ubisoft confirmed Assassin’s Creed III for the tail-end of this year, but no visual confirmation has poked us in the oculars until now. Kotaku, studiously analyzing the protagonist’s garb from a Best Buy tipster’s snap shot, places this Native American assassin smack dab in the Revolutionary War time period.
Social up-rise and war are nothing new to the Assassin’s series, but taking the action away from Europe is a marked shift in direction, and personally I’m excited to see the games strive for such an interesting change of pace after rinse and repeating the formula that put Assassin’s Creed II on the map for two games now.
The tipster – who I’m sure Ubisoft would love to sue into a little human-shaped hole in the ground – also provided the information that a true blue unveiling will hit March 5th. We’ll get to the bottom of this conspiracy then.
