Assassin's Creed III, the conclusion to Desmond's remarkable story, is finally revealed...
Developed over more than three years, with more than twice the production capacity of ANY previous Ubisoft game (!), Assassin's Creed III is set against the backdrop of the American Revolution in the late 18th century. Players will take control of a Native American chap by the name of Ratohnhaké:ton, who becomes the new voice of justice in the ancient war between the Assassins and Templars.
From the press release:
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 features the franchise's most expansive setting so far, along with an exciting new hero and exponentially more gameplay," said Yves Guillemot, chief executive officer at Ubisoft. "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."
Assassin's Creed III is headed to Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC and Wii U. More details, including the contents of the collector's edition, will be revealed by the end of March.
