Assassin's Creed III
« on: March 01, 2012, 08:54:05 PM »


"The game will complete the story of Desmond Miles, and will focus on a new ancestor, a half Native American Assassin who fought during the American Revolution."

Release date: October 30, 2012


Figured this topic was gonna happen sooner or later, so...it might as well be me who made it. :P  Okay, here's a look at the cover art, and what little they've finally told us.  American Revolution and a half Native American Assassin.  With a bow, Assassiny-looking tomahawk, and a flint-lock pistol.  Awesome!

Comments?  Thoughts?  Discuss! :D

To say everything is permitted, is to understand that we are the architects of our actions, and that we must live with their consequences, whether glorious or tragic."

Well I'll be damned . . .

http://www.gameinformer.com/b/news/archive/2012/03/01/april-cover-revealed-assassin-39-s-creed-iii.aspx

Interesting setting, I was looking at the French Revolution myself, due to the hints left at the end of Brotherhood but . . .

I'm not sure, Ubisoft will have to change the movement system quite a bit to factor in the major lack of significant buildings in Colonial America. But if they can factor in trees and rocks and other natural formations, an Assassin's Creed game taking place on the frontier could be pretty interesting.

Hopefully the new Assassin is just as memorable as Ezio. Still, I'm psyched!

Oh Dear God...*loses consciousness* this looks so awesome, SOO much more excited for this than I was for Revelations.

And on the subject of movement, if they evenly space it out between the Frontier climbing (rocks, mountains, trees, ect.) and the major colonial cities, it wouldn't have to change all that much. Boston, New York, Philadelphia, all of them had large expanses of several-story buildings. There wouldn't be anything all that HIGH to climb, except mountains and trees, but it would still work.

I get the feeling ACIII might play a lot like Red Dead: Redemption.


Drake is flamboyant, and may go over the top, but if he were not that extrovert then who would move things along?

Ridiculously awesome.

Btw, it's looking like this new Assassin doesn't have the hidden blade...I cant see it in any of the pictures posted so far...

Your thoughts, people?

Maybe it is just extra-hidden? If he doesn't have one, Ubisoft needs to get its %@*#$ in order.

Official Announcement Trailer.

No hidden blade used so far...only his Tomahawk...

EDIT: I just read that the Hidden Blade is in fact in the game, just not in this trailer for some reason...the person who said this claims they read it in this month's GameInformer, which hasn't come to my house yet, so I can't confirm that for you guys. I will do so as soon as possible, though.

Alright, found my GameInformer under a pile of mail on my dads desk.

HIDDEN BLADE CONFIRMATION:

"Seeing Connor as a threat to its food, a nearby bear attacks, and a brief but furious melee ensues that ends with Connor's HIDDEN BLADE deep in the bear's neck."

Worst cinematic trailer for an AC game so far. By a wide margin.
