:notbad:

 

 

Assassin's Creed 3 will be set during the American Revolution, leaked artwork for the game suggests.

Ubisoft's latest entry in the cloak-and-dagger adventure series launches on 30th October 2012, and is coming to PC, PlayStation 3, Wii U and Xbox 360. It will star a new assassin, pictured here armed with a tomahawk, arrows and a pistol.

 

The Assassin's Creed 3 artwork was snapped by a Best Buy employee (posted online by Kotaku), along with information from the retailer that a full reveal was imminent.

The foreground of the picture suggests the game will feature, at least in part, a snowy setting. The assassin hero sports some fetching animal fur trousers and models a military coat that closely resembles 18th-century military wear.

The flag on display is the "Betsy Ross" 13-starred variation of the US design, used from 1776 and throughout the Revolutionary War.

Adding weight to the report, Ubisoft yesterday mentioned "a major announcement from Assassin's Creed" was "only days away" via the series' official Facebook. The page's cover photo also now depicts a snowy and bleak setting.

GameInformer appeared ready to confirm the fresh details last night via an advertising banner posted on its site. Images show the new assassin standing next to American revolutionary leader George Washington. That banner, shown below, has now been taken down.

Ubisoft previously included the option of an American Revolutionary setting in a public poll on where future Assassin's Creeds should be set. That poll took place last November, and Ubisoft has claimed Assassin's Creed 3 has been in development for three years, meaning the option to visit "the confrontation between British colonists and native Americans during The American Revolution," was likely there just to double-check interest.

 

So no doubt we'll be the helping the glorious American republic triumph against us foul-breathed Englishmen, right? Well, probably not, as Assassin's Creed lore has already branded the Founding Fathers as evil Templars.

We already know that American revolutionary leader George Washington managed to secure one of the legendary Apples of Eden, devices which can control people's minds. He used this to keep order while president and then passed it down to his successors.

Presumably it's in the hands of Obama now.

What's that, American Civil War? Interesting.

 

I spy red-coats, so more likely the American Revolution.

 

This "franchise" needs a serious overhaul. It started with a good concept, but was pretty limited and repetitive. The subsequent iterations have all tried to add something, but it hasn't significantly evolved beyond Brotherhood. I honestly expect this to be just another re-skin job...

:lol: Yeah I know, but my point is, it's essentially been the same for 3 games running (AC2, Brotherhood, Revelations). That kind of shit is on a par with what Activision are churning out with CoD. I'm just hoping that this can be more than another annual update, and maybe it will bring some fresh ideas to the table. Doubt it though...

pity I was hoping for something in Egypt as that what was been hinted at in Revelations

 

I thought it was hinting more at a pre-civilisation that was just about wiped out by a cataclysm that is going to repeat itself, which is where Desmond fits in to stop it as the 'vergeance' between the heroes.

 

As long as we get multiple cities, bigger maps, no isometric / first person interlude and definitely no den defence wankery I'll be happy.  After the last two releases though I don't trust Ubi not to do another title biased toward online multiplayer.

thought we were going to get into Altair's sons stuff in Egypt or something further down the line that way but hey ho America it is, so long as they have the assassination's done well and often I'll be happy

so thats how all the Assassins in the modern era of the game are getting killed, easy enough to spot them.

 

on the bright side a proper bow and arrow for once, have this irrational hatred of crossbows....

I was extremely pessismistic over the American Revolution setting but not for the story because i have great faith that it will be awesome.

 

But i was concerned about the combat and exploration being p*ss poor.......

 

But the trailer and the details about the game revealed by Gameinformer iam starting to get really pumped for it, cant wait tbh.

 

BTW i doubt it will be a reskin job considering its a new setting, supposedly been under development since AC2 and running on a brand new engine.
