The Assassin’s Creed franchise has built a name for itself as one of the most premier series in the current gaming landscape. It is without a doubt one of the biggest franchises and as such whenever a new installment of Assassin’s Creed is released it is usually followed by a great deal of hype and anticipation. Assassin’s Creed 3 however was a different level of hype altogether. This game promised to be a revolution, a new direction for a franchise that many believed was in need of a shot in the arm, a different take, a fresh start – a change.
