Assassin's Creed 3 is out now in the U.S. for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. One of the biggest blockbuster titles of the year, Assassin's Creed 3 is the historical action-adventure game that puts players in the shoes of a new assassin, Connor Kenway, during the American Revolution from 1753 through 1783.
Throughout the game, which also wraps up Desmond Miles' story in the present day setting, Connor will interact with many historical figures. George Washington and Benjamin Franklin, to name a few. Places like colonial New York and Boston will also be fully explorable, as well as the entire American Frontier.
“Assassin’s Creed III is Ubisoft’s biggest launch ever and the most ambitious game in our history. Today, we delivered on the vision the team had three years ago thanks to the tremendous talent and hard work of the many Ubisoft studios involved,” said Yves Guillemot, chief executive officer, Ubisoft. “They have refined the core tenets of the franchise while also implementing brand new experiences, such as naval combat, that will captivate returning fans and newcomers to the Assassin’s Creed universe.”
