Assassin's Creed 3 is set in Colonial America, you play a half-English, half-Mohawk assassin with an unpronounceable name (Ratonhnhaké:ton, but you can call him Connor Kenway), George Washington and Benjamin Franklin are both in it, and you can run up trees before hitting people in the face with an axe.
Assassin's Creed 3 sees the franchise shift gears both in terms of scale and pacing, and this looks to be exacerbated by the fact that the hero is now doing his whole righteous-vengeance thing in the middle of a brutal war. Expect to see bigger, bloodier, and more spectacular battles, and a greater sense of urgency to the sci-fi meta story that involves Templars, "Those Who Came Before," and the impending apocalypse.
Don't forget, there's a real-world ticking clock for fans to concerns themselves with too. Desmond Miles, the modern day protagonist of the series, needs to finish his tale by the end of this year, so expect some huge revelations.
"In Assassin's Creed we set up a timeline with this whole end of the world plot in December 2012," Alexandre Amacio, creative director of Assassin's Creed Revelations told us. "That's fast approaching, and the story we have to tell, we obviously need to do it before we arrive at that point. It would be stupid of us to be centering a game on a semi-reality and then have that conclusion happen after that date in real life."
why isn't my comment showing? I think the latest comments section isn't updating. Someone please fix this.
woulda been kool if they did a version during time of discovering the new world, something like Pirates of the Caribean! .. now we're all the way fast forward to defeating the British..
im hoping they will thell me something...anything... about half life 2 episode 3...
....hoping.....but not optimistic.....
AHHH !!!!!! I don't see any strategy games like Total Civil War " or something gane like assassin creed are boring !!!!!! Let me know when a good game comes out !!!!!
@cbt778 Some of us like games that we DON'T already know everything about the story behind them. Just saying.....
This would be amazing! I have played all episode till revelation... i think this would be breath taking too, having seen the trilers.
@nintendians You haven't? Then you must have played mental hopscotch with fate & lost because every one of the series is intense.Believe me & so many others that it's truly worth every penny for the Assassins Creed Series.
I saw the picture for this article on the front page and i thought it was some F**ked of version of the hunger games or something.
Well here is something new , I heared yesturday that the animal crossing is coming out frist thing next year, 2013
@nintendoboy16That game is so cool , I wanted in my system .... well do you know they have tomb Raider and Borderlands for the 3ds
Cant wait for this one , assassin creed revelation is one of the best game of his kind ,may be this one getting 9.5 score .
Assassin's Creed has always been THE BEST, now this will kill the other games and will win a lot of awards, it is awesome game. I have only watched the trailer and I can already tell it is the best
I don't get the AC3 hype, since AC 2 Ubisoft just recycled all the animations from AC2, instead of multiple locations we got one city each time, story's are just a token for the game play, series feels cheap since AC2, seriously 1 year cycle? Sure they can build a town in a year, but it's mostly going to be recycled assets again, whats so special about a new skin.
@orbit991 new engine, new control scheme, new combat system = new game. i agree that the ezio stuff got old and was definitely recycled assets but they knew they had to do something much different to make this viable.
@orbit991 while I agree to a point that the games that were released after AC2 were pretty much the same, it was the story that hooked me. But back to your comment, AC3 has been built from the ground up and they've been working on it for the last three years. Have you seen the game play trailer? While there are elements that have been taken out from the previous games, don't expect this to be exactly the same, hell you might enjoy it. :-)
