"Assassin's Creed 3" Sounds a Lot Like "Red Dead Ezio"

Oh, are we finally done with Renaissance Italy, Ubisoft? Sure you don’t want to set another dozen games there?
Sarcasm aside, the official third game in the “Assassin’s Creed” main series has been announced, and it actually looks like a great step forward…although a lot like “Red Dead Redemption” in some respects.
As you might have guessed, we technically have moved on from Ezio to the American Revolution. The new guy’s name is Connor, the game opens with his childhood, you spend a lot of time hunting for resources, and apparently you can walk around strapped and nobody will notice. And you’ll spend a lot of time hanging out with historical personages like George Washington
As for combat, you can kick more ass and it’s based around speed. You’ll have a knife and a tomahawk that let you chain kills.
Here are a few screens.
