The Assassin’s Creed series has long featured some of the most polished games on the market, taking players to beautifully-rendered Renaissance and Crusade-era European countries. But as the new trailer for Assassin’s Creed III indicates, the series’s third official game will take gamers to a less refined place: revolutionary America.
I’d be shocked if Ubisoft changes gameplay in any dramatic way, but the change in scenery should make for a completely different experience than the castle and temple-scaling way of previous installments. Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater would probably be a good place to start drawing comparisons, and as that game proved, lush forests can make for some excellent stealth gameplay. Look for the illuminati-esque tale of the Assassin clan to continue on October 30th.
For a more in-depth look at the game, head over to IGN, which includes the new assassin’s name, which historical figures you’ll see, when the game takes place and more.
