Update: Check out our hands-on Assassin's Creed 3 review

Assassin's Creed 3 looks set to be the biggest yet in the series, not only is it the fifth time we see Desmond go up against the Templars but more importantly it introduces an entirely new Assassin and with it a brand new location to boot. 

 

Assassin’s Creed News:

New information has come to light thanks to Game Informer which confirms that not only will Boston be one of the key cities involved in the game but that you'll also be playing as Connor throughout his life from being a child right through to late adulthood.

Assassin’s Creed 3 has officially been confirmed for the Nintendo Wii U, making it the first game to be confirmed for the next-generation console and also revealing that the Nintendo Wii U release date could well be before 2012.

Assassin's Creed 3 Story:

Set during the late 18th Century Assassin’s Creed 3 will see Desmond visit a brand-new time period and a brand-new Assassin called Connor.

Originally named Ratohnaké:ton but adopting the first name Connor, our hero is half-English and half-Native American. Raised by the Mohawks the Assassin will find himself plunged into the middle of America’s bloody birth.

Assassin’s Creed 3 will see Connor explore a world larger than any Assassin’s Creed game before it and will have him traversing locations from the wild savagery of the Frontier to the bustling streets of Colonial towns.

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.”

Expanding on his point, the writer said that Assassin’s Creed 3 isn’t about a clash of two races, rather, a tale that highlights the plight of the innocent caught up in the conflict.

“At that point it’s not about American or English; it’s about English and English and that’s something we want to be very clear on. It’s not about America Ra Ra it’s about freedom and community and about how people are treated in that kind of a situation.

"And how they want to find their own identity. I think that’s something that’s universal to anybody”.
