We received a ton of new media from Ubisoft today. Everything from a new 360° pan of our new hero, Connor and his weapons to new screenshots and box art for NTSC. View the gallery at the bottom.
Set against the backdrop of the American Revolution in the late 18th century, Assassin’s Creed III introduces a new hero, Ratohnhaké:ton, of Native American and English heritage. Adopting the name Connor, he becomes the new voice for justice in the ancient war between the Assassins and Templars. Players become an Assassin in the war for liberty against ruthless tyranny in the most stylized and fluid combat experiences in the franchise to date. Assassin’s Creed III 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.
Gamers who pre-order Assassin’s Creed III at EB Games, Future Shop, Best Buy or Microplay/Vidéotron (Québec) will receive a Limited Edition collectible case featuring artwork created by award-winning comic book artist Alex Ross. (I grabbed mine)
