The Assassin’s Creed franchise had become pretty stale lately with a new game every single year and the previous three in a row set in Italy with protagonist Ezio Auditore. However, even though a year off would have probably been for the best, the decision to jump to a completely different point in time is looking to be a very smart one by Ubisoft.
Assassin’s Creed III moves to the American Revolution, and a couple new gameplay demos shown off at E3 have a decent little buzz growing around the game. The first demo shows the assassin you’ll be playing as, but instead of navigating an ancient city, he’s making his way through snowy forests and enemy forts (though there will still be cities as well, such as Boston).
