Ubisoft is working on Assassin’s Creed 3. Derr. That was obvious. However, what wasn’t so obvious is the when and the where of the game’s story line. We’ve all had our own hopes and theories, but those have all been put to rest. Today, Ubisoft revealed the box art of Assassin’s Creed 3, and it becomes clear we will be taking a trip to the American Revolution.
From the box art you can clearly see an assassin leaping onto a red coat as an American flag stands waves in the background. We can also see that the assassin is wielding hatchet that is made to look like the Assassin’s emblem that we’ve seen throughout the games. He also has a bow & arrow set and a firearm. The prevalence of guns during that era serves as an opportunity to create some interesting new gameplay features or situations. It will be interesting to see where Ubisoft goes with this.
Assassin’s Creed 3 will be out on October 30th for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC. It would be a lot cooler if it came out on July 4th. However, I’m not in charge of making these decisions… but I should be!
