Ubisoft showed off the first trailer for Assassin’s Creed 3 today, confirming that the game takes place during the American Revolution, as revealed by leaks last week. The protagonist of the game will be a Native American this time around, and is named Ratohnhaké:ton (or Connor, which he adopts as a new name).
“Assassin’s Creed 3 spans the Revolutionary War, taking gamers from the vibrant, untamed frontier to bustling colonial towns and the intense, chaotic battlefields where George Washington’s Continental Army clashed with the imposing British Army,” Ubisoft share in their press release.
Assassin’s Creed 3 is being developed by a whopping seven internal Ubisoft studios, and uses a new engine named Ubisoft-AnvilNext. The game is slated for release on the PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on October 30th. A Wii U version is in development as well, but a release date for it hasn’t been announced yet.
