Assassin's Creed 3: OXCGN picks American Revolution in March 2011- Evidence now in!

OXCGN:

"There's no doubt in any of our minds that Assassin's Creed III, when it supposedly hits this fall, is going to be one hell of a game...

As the days grow shorter until we experience the "end", more news has been surfacing as to exact details about the game's setting and protagonist.

We have long said the evidence points to the American Revolution as a setting, and have had other 'confidential' reasons to believe we were right.

Now an image has been leaked, courtesy of a Best Buy employee who snapped images of an upcoming promotional piece. This confirms our long-affirmed guess that Assassin's Creed III will, in fact, take place during the American Revolution!"

Can't wait to assassinate some red coats...

I remember when this rumour came up on N4G...

I am wondering how this new assassin will tie with and conclude Desmonds story.

Also.. I do not know much about American history( canadian eh) but wasn't America mostly land with smaller colonies back then?

Wonder how the free-run mechanic will be affected.

Also wonder if there will be any combat changes.

This is one of my most anticipated (look at my avatar) games for 2012.

Ubi said that AC3 will have an aggressive advertisement campaign.

Wonder what they mean, but still very excited to see how it all ends

@tdogchristy

Perhaps.. Ubi released a picture today showing of a snow barren landscape.

Maybe they removed buildings to give that visceral feel of an Indian stalking his prey through the trees, waiting to strike

DAMN I AM EXCITED

Firstly, the colonies went from main all the way to georgia, so there is plenty of land. Secondly by the American revolution, Europeans had been in the colonies for at least 150 years, you do have pretty large, advanced cities like Boston. Granted they aren't AS large as some of the cities in europe, but they'll do I think. Besides, a smaller setting may make it more spooky/stealthy...like ghost towns almost lol. Yay for stalking with a hatchet like an indian.

Boston and Philadelphia are large enough to roam around in.

Plus you can go do side missions in maybe London, do a mission in an Iroquois tribe maybe, etc.

hell yeah!!! awesome!!!
already most anticipated even though i have not seen a bit of this game. =D

Hooshuwashu1583d ago

oh man.. this is going to be interesting, to say the least.

Completely ridiculous, but maybe they're going to tackle racial undertones by the character being Native American? Would be an interesting subplot.

gaminoz1583d ago

Not sure how it'll be...I like the more historic architecture of the old ones. I guess you can still use knives, especially if you are Native American, indigenous.

(please excuse my use of the word Indians before)

gaminoz1583d ago

I guess freerunning up trees will be the go?

I think the suggestion of the French-Indian war was better...that had Yanks with Brits (and indians) against French and Indians.

I guess the Brits will be the bad guys and not the Americans???? Typical.

Proeliator1583d ago

Destroy the red coats, attack their yellow teeth for massive damage!

gaminoz1583d ago

Bah...all the Yanks wanted to do was go over the Appalachians and EXPAND (at the cost of the existing peoples there).

All about profit and keeping it to themselves, not giving it to the empire. Fair enough, but selling that as 'freedom', pfftt. The Canadians never suffered much under the 'yoke' of Britain.

MsclMexican1583d ago

Or.. maybe the free masons and all that other good stuff.

If you played AC2 one of subject 16's glyphs hinted that George Washington was a Templar whom controlled a Piece of Eden.

Also.. in the Assassins Creed: The fall comic, they stated that George Bush was a mere Templar puppet, whom had won due to a fixed voting campaign.

After all Ubi is based in Canada, France, Singapore and Britain.... not sure if they are in the US

WildStyles1583d ago

I really don't care for the series but if you play as a Native American, I can't miss this. It's rare as hell to play as a Native American.

gaminoz1583d ago

Agreed. I think this was the best move. They were stiffed by both sides. That should be the focus.

Majin-vegeta1583d ago

Not really into AC but if we could do that i would buy this day one oh yea please let us scalp the enemies>:).

Ezio20481583d ago

yeah baby!! Love you Ubisoft!!!
