It appears that the rumors are true. The next Assassin’s creed game will take place during the American revolutionary war. Next month’s Game informer magazine will reveal full details of the upcoming Assassin’s creed III but for now this is what we know.
The game will bring the conflict between the Assassins and Templars over to the new world and it will somehow tie into the American revolutionary war. The game has supposedly been in development for 3 years so in theory it should be a bigger game than the last two. We’ll get to play as a new character who will use Native American weaponry as well as contemporary arms of the late 18th century.
That’s all we have to go on right now but speaking as an Assassin’s creed fan I have mixed feelings. On the one hand I’m very excited over playing as a new character in a new setting. On the other, I was hoping that this game would focus completely on Desmond Miles and be all about the upcoming 2012 apocalypse that the series has been building towards this entire time.
Check out some pictures of the Game informer cover.
Assassin’s creed III will be released on the Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 on October 30th.
