There’s been a lot of hype this week starting with the leaked image sent to Kotaku featuring Ratohnhaké:ton pronounced Ra-doon-ha-kay-toon (or simply as Connor), our protagonist for the upcoming Assassin’s Creed 3 with the original continental flag behind him (see Kotaku’s original article here). Between that post early Thursday morning and now, Ubisoft has released the official box art, a teaser video telling us that “all would be revealed March 5th“ and the Announcement Trailer that was broadcast today live by IGN.
As you saw, assuming you watched the trailer, the North American release date is October 30th along with a pre-order bonus. Although I’m not big on the American Revolution, this story arch in the series can tie in very well with the previous games and the 2012 storyline. Other than the video and a few screenshots, not much is confirmed about the story line or gameplay.
Game Informer will continue to provide coverage for Assassin’s Creed III through their AC3 Hub here.
