Assassinís Creed 3 takes placed in colonial America during the American Revolution. Stepping into the shoes of a man named Connor, a man of half English and half Native American ethnicity. After Connorís home was brutally attacked by white colonists, Connor retaliates against the very tyrannies that lead the attack against his people. Notable figures in history will make a cameo in the game. A few in this list include, but hopefully not limited to, George Washington, Benjamin Franklin, and Charles Lee; the premise for this game already looks incredible and breath taking. Hitching control of a lethal and armament aplenty assassin during the Revolutionary War, a war that ultimately gave true independence and birth to America, is quite spectacular to begin with. Additionally, with all the conspiracies that still exist about the war and certain historical figures, one can anticipate a storyline that will have you guessing on what will happen next whilst certain events in the game will perhaps be connoting deeper meanings in the mentalities and actions of real people that existed during the Revolutionary War.
Nevertheless, transcending from the restrictive gameplay due to technological constraints that were present in the previous two Assassin Creed games, one can expect numerous twists in the combat system to be present. However it is undoubtedly the gameplay system that made Assassinís Creed famous and more than enjoyable will be the primary foundation of the gameplay. If you were not a fan of the series, now would be a great time to start!
Assassinís Creed 3 is due for an October 30th, 2012 release date.
