Kotaku - Connor, the hero of the upcoming Assassin's Creed III, is supposedly non-partisan. Sure, he'll be swinging his tomahawk right through the middle of the American War of Independence, but like other games in the series, there's the expectation that he's out to get Templars, not the British, or Hanoverians, or the Native Americans.
So it's been disappointing that, until this week, every single piece of marketing we've seen for the game has been bordering on the Mel Gibsonian, revelling in a cry of "KILL THE REDCOATS" that sits ill at ease with the historical neutrality shown throughout the rest of the franchise.
But that was until this week! We've now got out first look at Connor leaping from a great height to kill an American. Or, given the fact there are other men there alongside him, perhaps Americans.
