A few days ago, French videogame developers Ubisoft quietly leaked several images that provide information on the setting and main character of the newest entry in the wildly popular Assassin’s Creed series. The series follows a bloodline of assassins as accessed through a machine that allows a modern day descendent to tap into their memories. The games previously explored Italy and the Middle East, but the newest entry seems to offer quite a departure from the somewhat similar first entries. According to the two images Ubisoft released with little explanation, the newest game will take place during the American Revolution.
The main character, who’s name was recently leaked as both “Connor” and “Ratohnhaketon”, is apparently an assassin of mixed white and Native-American descent. A few screenshots leaked hint at some of the new game mechanics and environments that Assassin’s Creed 3 will offer.
Although the information has been sparse, these shots have definitely been generating buzz for Ubisoft’s newest release. For more information, check out this video analysis via IGN:
