Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed 3 hits stores on October 30, 2012 with a new story that will undoubtedly raise as many new questions as it answers, but players will have an opportunity to dig a little bit deeper when the just-announced Assassin's Creed: Forsaken tie-in novel hits stores on December 4. The Olver Bowden-penned story will reveal more about AC3's hero, Connor, with a story that picks up during the American Revolution.
This is hardly Bowden's first time writing for the Assassin's Creed universe. The author has written a number of others, including novelizations of the games Brotherhood and Revelations. The Bowden name is actually a pseudonym; he's really Anton Gill, a professional writer and historian whose primary area of expertise is contemporary European history.
