The Assassin’s Creed III Announcement Trailer

According to Ubisoft, the trailer was done with the in-game engine. While it’s doubtful actual gameplay will actually look like that, I don’t think I would have cared if it were done in play-doh. I’m just excited for the franchise to be out of Renaissance Italy because three consecutive years of that stuff was really beginning to wear thin.

Assassin’s Creed is a franchise that has managed to exhibit just enough improvement each iteration that I always get sucked into playing each one all the way through despite having low expectations from the game being on a yearly release cycle. This third entry, though, has my antipatory interest sufficiently piqued. Assassinating British Colonials in the forests of New England? Yes, please.

From the press release:

Set against the backdrop of the American Revolution in the late 18th century, Assassin’s Creed III introduces a new hero, Ratohnhaké:ton, of Native American and English heritage. Adopting the name Connor, he becomes the new voice for justice in the ancient war between the Assassins and Templars
