Ubisoft are one of the few gaming companies with the programming talent and financial backing required to shake up the dominance of Electronic Arts and Activision. Assassin’s Creed 3 will utilize the new ‘Anvil Next’ Gaming Engine, which developers have been working on for the last 3 years. Set in 18th century America, Assassin’s Creed 3 will bring gamers further in time than ever before, with main character Connor even set to boast a rifle during certain sections of the Game. Below you can find all the details about the game.
America. The 18th Century. The thirteen colonies are on the brink of Revolution. Our protagonist, Connor, is thrust into tumultuous 18th century Revolutionary America. Born to a Mohawk mother and British father, he struggles to find his place in a world that views him as an outsider.
Assassin’s Creed III invites players to experience the untold story of the American Revolution through the eyes of a new Assassin, Connor. Designed from the ground up over more than two years, Assassin’s Creed III takes one of gaming’s most beloved franchises to new heights.
The year is 1775. The American colonies are about to revolt. You are Connor, an assassin who has sworn to secure liberty for his people and his nation. To do so, you will hunt your enemies across a staggeringly large, open, and realistic world. You will unleash your lethal skills in a violent quest that will take you from chaotic city streets to blood-soaked battlefields in the hostile American wilderness and beyond. You will meet legendary heroes of American history, and together you will conspire to annihilate those who threaten Liberty itself.
Whether you use your predatory instincts to kill silently, or your fearsome arsenal to kill openly, one thing is clear: the world that the Assassins live in has become far more deadly. And so have you.
Main Character: Connor
You are Connor, the warrior son of a Native American mother and British father. As a bloody revolution draws ever nearer, your clan is threatened by a powerful group seeking to crush the American revolution and control the thirteen colonies. Shocked into action by the devastation of your village, you pledge your life to the cause of freedom, and embark on a decades-long quest to achieve it.
Your predatory instincts, honed by years of hunting through unforgiving wilderness, allow you to stalk and eliminate your targets in utter silence. When open combat beckons, you will unleash a staggering array of new weapons including tomahawks, rope darts, firearms, and more. Centuries before the term “black ops” is defined, you will pioneer this new kind of warfare.
There’s the American Revolution you know from history books. And then there’s the revolution you’ll be fighting, set in a world that’s far more realistic, gritty, and alive than any history book ever could be.
Pursue your enemies through a massive, dynamic world whose only constant is that it’s always changing. From the legendary battlefields of Lexington and Concord and the crowded streets of Boston and New York, to the snow-covered Appalachian wilderness, you’ll wage war in a stunningly alive and open environment. Whether you’re tracking your quarry’s blood trail through freshly-fallen snow, or taking advantage of howling winds and dense fog to conceal your attack, one thing is certain: you’ve never fought this way before.
Throughout your quest, you’ll encounter the legendary characters who guided a young nation through its tumultuous birth . You’ll meet iconic figures such as General George Washington, the tenacious commander-in-chief of the Continental Army and first President of the young United States. Or Benjamin Franklin, the renowned inventor, scientist, author, and revolutionary statesman. And Charles Lee, the ruthless general who played key roles in some of the war’s bloodiest battles. This is not just your chance to witness history, it’s your chance to make it.
