For Assassin’s Creed III the franchise will be getting out of Europe and making it’s way across the big blue wet thing to see what’s happening in the American Revolution.
The past games have followed Ezio Auditore as he goes through Italy and Constantinople killing people and making deals. The plot is a little more complex then that though. It’s been rumored for a while that the next franchise entry would happen in the states. Now Ubisoft is happy to confirm that news by releasing the box art. Game Informer also has a few new images from their upcoming April cover story.
The team creating Assassin’s Creed III went into development knowing that they would have to create something new and rethink every aspect of the game. The creative team has taken a full three years in a development cycle in order to create this new game.
While the games are fun and the story is rich and entertaining, the danger with every franchise is that it will get stale and the writing will fail to live up to the past game. That’s why we see remakes, reboots, and re-imaginings.
The story of this new game is set in the second half of the 18th century. The war between the Templars and Assassins continues and makes it way over to New World. While not much is known about our new new hero yet, Game Informer promises to tell the full story of the character in their upcoming issue.
