Rumor Water: Assassin’s Creed heads to American Revolution

Rumor Water: Assassin’s Creed heads to American Revolution

The exciting switch to the 18th century conflict will mark the series’ ‘biggest instalment yet’, according to Ubisoft, and our insider indicates the game will be publicly showcased before the end of the company’s fiscal year on March 31.

The American setting was first hinted in Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood’s ‘Da Vinci Disappearance’ DLC, which drip-fed players a set of coordinates leading to New York state, USA.

Another hint featured in the ending of latest series entry, Revelations, when a futuristic globe hovered over the US (pictured).

Perhaps the biggest indication though came late last year, when a Ubisoft survey asked fans where they’d like to see Assassin’s Creed go next. The options included, “The confrontation between British colonists and native Americans during The American Revolution.”

The setting of course opens up all kinds of historical crossover possibilities for the series, including encounters with George Washington, who according to Assassin’s Creed lore is in possession of an Apple of Eden.

    The whole bow and arrow throw a knife across the town thing never really appealed to me but this seems like a really cool setting. They could have some super clever easter eggs too.

  • Ernice Gilbert

    I’d definitely buy this one.

    AC3 is suppose to take place in a current setting, not still in the past!
    oh god please dont tell me there doing another spin off!

    i swear if this is anything like brotherhood and revelations im done buying AC games. im so sick of these games not having as many cities, sequences, side missions, secret puzzles as AC2. when you make a sequel its supposed to be a more improved upon game than the last iteration. brotherhood was a downgrade when it came to all those aspects though they did add new stuff but it was scaled down greatly but overall was good but not as good as AC2. revelations was an overall disappointment. it literally wasn’t as good as the first AC and that sure as hell is saying something. i think they need to quit with this releasing ever year crap cause this is getting ridiculous. and for a rarity nick im gonna have to agree with WTF!!!

    The problem is these guys want to release the game on a yearly basis. Not that it’s a bad thing….but for games like AC it’s tough…this is not a COD title where you run and gun….AC titles are supposed to be huge…

    Yeah, agreed with you guys.
