Assassin’s Creed 3 Setting Revealed!
The battle between the Templars and Assasins will continue during the latter half of the 18th century in the new world: America. Today Game Informers released their April cover images which show Assassin’s Creed 3′s “daring new hero” wielding an axe and pistol. Along with the publication of the box covers and the other images the magazine writes:
“Ever since the conclusion of Assassin’s Creed II, a senior team of Ubisoft developers has been secretly toiling away on what comes next. 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.
“The game that emerged is Assassin’s Creed III. Set in the latter half of the 18th century, we’ll see the war between the Templars and the Assassins escalate as it crosses over to the New World of America, and witness firsthand the events of the American Revolution.”
“Caught in the conflict is a daring new hero in the Assassin’s Creed franchise. We have the full story of this new hero and the striking game in which he stars, along with exclusive screens and art from the project, all packed into a massive 13-page cover story.”
Ubisoft said that the switch to the 18th century conflict will mark its “biggest installment yet”. They continued: “We confirm that Ubisoft will announce all the details of Assassin’s Creed III on Monday March 5th at 5pm.”
