With the latest instalment in the Assassin’s Creed franchise, the official third outing encouraging gamers to experience the American Revolutionary War not written about in history books – with a completely new Hero!
With a development cycle of over three years and twice the production capacity of any previous Ubisoft game, Assassin’s Creed III is in development by Ubisoft Montreal in collaboration with six other Ubisoft studios making this the largest Assassin’s Creed title to date.
Set against the backdrop of the American Revolution in the late 18th century, the game introduces a new hero, Ratohnaké:ton (aka Connor), who 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.
Assassin’s Creed III is powered by Ubisoft-AnvilNext, a revolutionary new game engine that delivers breakthroughs in visual quality, character models and artificial intelligence. Assassin’s Creed III will feature a ground-breaking level of stunning graphics that bring Colonial America to life when it releases worldwide on October 31st 2012.
