We know for a fact that you'll be following Connor throughout his life in a similar way to that of Ezio which means you'll see him before he reaches adulthood and becomes an Assassin.
Also confirmed is the fact he’ll be involved in some way with some major historical battles that took place including Washington’s clash with the British Army.
According to Ubisoft's CEO Yves Guillemot Assassin's Creed 3 has been three years in the making and will be larger than any of the previous games.
"We will push the title a lot because it's a fantastic product that the team has been working for three years," said CEO Yves Guillemot. "What we have seen is just fabulous."
Speaking about the graphics Guillemot confirms this will be the most visually stunning game yet making use of the entirely new Ubisoft-AnvilNext engine.
“Whether you’re a longtime fan of Assassin’s Creed or if you’re new to the franchise, you’re going to be blown away by the scale and marvel of Assassin’s Creed III”
Lead writer Matt Turner recently revealed that Connor won’t be fighting any corners and will remain “outside of the conflict.”
Speaking to Official PlayStation Magazine, he said: “He’s not British or Colonial and has his own reasons for being involved, his own path that happens to intersect with the Revolution.”
"And how they want to find their own identity. I think that’s something that’s universal to anybody”.
