Assassin’s Creed 3 and the American Revolution

OK. The setting of Assassin’s Creed 3 doesn’t really come as a surprise, does it? After all, the American Revolution was part of this survey Ubisoft did …

It seems we will follow one more forefather of our dear protagonist Desmond. But one strikes Rabidgames as rather weird: We play as an Indian, pardon Native American? Wasn’t racism quite an issue back then? While this is fascinating it is also odd: You might not be able to walk among the elite as a Native American during this era – especially not so in Assassins’ garments which would seem completely out of place!

Another oddity is the setting: Will we fight as an Indian tribe against the British and the Americans? Will we fight alongside the Americans? Who will be the Templars?
Alright, it seems to be pretty obvious the British army will consist of Templar forces while the likes of Jefferson and Washington will be members of the Assassins …

Rabidgames hopes we finally get a fresh setting: Gone might be the ever-virtual city-hopping (which has felt incredibly stale in Revelations), gone better be that fucking boring wanna-be tower defense game! Instead, we might get some kind of Assassin’s Red Dead Creed … the vastness of the plains combined with some stealth kills …

OK, OK. Maybe Rabidgames is just dreaming. Maybe will find ourselves in New York, and Assassin’s Creed 3 will be more of the same “climb houses, jump on opponent, but stealth doesn’t really play out so just use counters to kill everyone” affair … who knows?

We might get to know more next Monday afternoon.

Rabidgames hopes: North America might bring the urgently needed fresh breeze to the Assassin’s Creed series. While Ezio was a great character, it is now time to move on – hopefully, this includes gameplay as well!

  1. Secondo me Assassin’s Creed III sarà un gioco memorabile, da ricordare. I primi screenshot sono stupendi. Ciao
