For better or for worse, the Assassin’s Creed series has left the medieval era for good. It has now taken up a new location altogether: Colonial America. Gone are the sprawling cities where you can climb buildings and jump across rooftops (although we might get some through very old New York or Boston?). These are the days of tree climbing and jumping from branch to branch like a monkey!
The Assassin’s Creed III trailer was released this morning with great anticipation from just about everyone, including me. Cementing the information from leaks that the new Assassin’s Creed will be through the American Revolutionary War, we get to see what appears to be George Washington making a speech to his troops before facing off against the British Redcoats. And of course, no trailer would be complete without some hot Assassin-style brutal killing action. Gone are the classy days of Ezio and Altair with their wrist blades. Tomahawking is the new thing. That and shooting people with their own rifles. It appears the Assassins (or Assassin, no news on if they plan to keep the Assassin guild mechanic) are on the side of the Americans! This is going to be mighty exciting!
Regardless of what twists Ubisoft has in store for us with their “biggest release to date,” I’m sure it will be good. Being an Assassin’s Creed fan since ACII, I will definitely keep up with the information as it is released!
