A new batch of unseen screenshots for Assassin’s Creed III turned up today. The new shots show the new assassin scaling a tree, rowing a canoe down a lazy river, and of course, in combat. Assassin’s Creed III will be the first Assassin’s Creed game since Assassin’s Creed 2 to introduce a new main character into the long running franchise.
Set against the backdrop of the American Revolution in the late 18th century, Assassin’s Creed III introduces a new hero, Ratohnhaké:ton, of Native American and English heritage. Adopting the name Connor, he becomes the new voice for justice in the ancient war between the Assassins and Templars. Players become an Assassin in the war for liberty against ruthless tyranny in the most stylized and fluid combat experiences in the franchise to date. Assassin’s Creed III spans the Revolutionary War, taking gamers from the vibrant, untamed frontier to bustling colonial towns and the intense, chaotic battlefields where George Washington’s Continental Army clashed with the imposing British Army.
Assassin’s Creed III is due out on the PlayStation 3, PC, Xbox 360 and Wii U later this year.
