Release Date: October 30, 2012

Platforms: PC, PS3, XBOX 360

Multiplayer: TBA

Setting: American Revolution (1753 - 1783)

From Kotaku.com:

Is This the Star of Assassin’s Creed III? [update: Yes, It Is]

Well, this is interesting. A Best Buy worker just emailed us two images snapped from their employee news section. One shows that Ubisoft will be unveiling Assassin's Creed III on March 5, and that there'll be pre-order bonuses to be had. Whatever.

The other is a shot of what they say is the game's promotional art. Featuring what may well be Assassin's Creed III's star.

If this is legitimate, and remember, this is completely unconfirmed, it appears that the chatter placing the third game in the series in the American Revolution is spot-on. In the background is the original Continental flag, the Assassin is wearing an 18th-century military jacket and from his weaponry, jewellery and resemblance to actor Wes Studi he appears to be Native American. Or at the very least half-Native American. Especially when you consider that our source tells us that, out of shot, the Assassin is also carrying a tomahawk.

UPDATE - OK, we now have a bigger, better shot of the character below. Click to embiggen!

Anyone else wish they'd done something a little different with the hood? A variation of some sort? It just seems out of place for this time period.

I wonder how much further they can get away from the original gameplay. Maybe they'll make this one a FPS to sell out even more to the preteens :rolleyes:

They lost my respect when they put multiplayer in and made the Campaign half the length. I'll play it, but I'll wait until it's in the $20 bin at Walmart.

trailer looks pretty sick. and the outfit isn't quite as bad as i originally thought. still though, they could have done away with the "tail" part.
