Assassin’s Creed III hero is Native American?
Attention Assassin’s Creed fans: The third full episode of Ubisoft’s acclaimed action adventure is set to be officially unveiled this March 5… and it will apparently be set during the American Revolution.
That’s according to videogame magazine Game Informer, which claims Ubisoft has not only confirmed Assassin’s Creed III will take the action from old world to new world but will also include a brand new protagonist.
Associated game and cover art appears to support this rush of information, not least because it includes a tomahawk-toting assassin laying the smack down on a British Redcoat before a flapping flag of the 13 Colonies.
“For years new we’ve enjoyed the adventures of Ezio Auditore as he makes his way through the Italian Renaissance and Ottoman-controlled Constantinople. That story is over,” notes Games Informer.
“Ever since the conclusion of Assassin’s Creed II, a senior team of Ubisoft developers has been secretly toiling away on what comes next,” it adds. “That team aimed high, with plans to examine and rethink every element of the franchise from the ground up, build something new, and take a full three-year development cycle to do it.”
Evidently, all that toil has resulted in the series taking a significant leap through history, which should provide gamers with a radically different canvas and access to a wealth of new weapons and other death-dealing accessories.
Given the bow and quiver slung across his back—not to mention the tomahawk—we’re going to go out on a limb here and say the game’s core hero will be a Native American.
