Assassin's Creed III features a new setting during one of the most important times in US history. The game is set mainly in the early years of the United States during our American Revolution. The game will have a new protagonist known as Connor (aka Ratohnhaké), who fights for his own reasons to achieve a more personal goal. But Connor is not without honor, his quest and independence is a symbol of freedom against it's oppressors.
Not much is known about the game as of yet, but developers are saying it will the largest and most diverse installment of the series. Much like other titles, players will be able to navigate around a large open world map that is fully equipped with shops, banks, tunnels, secrets, mini games and side missions. The developing team has spent more time offering more diverse and interactive mini-games and side missions to give players a less repetitive experience when roaming outside of story line missions.
Conner will have a larger array of abilities compared to his predecessors Altaïr and Ezio Auditore, he will have new combo moves, and the ability to preform more offensive/defensive maneuvers. Conner will also have a larger variety of finishing moves that will scare off some of his other foes. Some rumors circling around forums suggest that Conner will be able to climb trees and stalk from the tree tops, teasers for the game suggest that this is true, however there has been no official word.
Assassin's Creed III is the fifth installment to the series, and has been in development since the release of Assassin's Creed II. The game is being developed by a senior development team at Ubisoft and will also be published by Ubisoft. Assassin's Creed III will be a sandbox action-adventure game for Playstation 3, Xbox 360, Wii U and PC. It's due to hit retail in October, and there has been no mention of multiplayer modes or beta testing as of yet.
Prepare to unleash your inner Assassin and sharpen your blades yet again this fall.
