The Assassin’s Creed series is getting a major overhaul with the fifth game, Assassin’s Creed 3, due this fall. There are currently four main games in the Assassin’s Creed series (Assassin’s Creed, AC 2, AC Brotherhood, AC Revelations) plus multiple spin-off games and DLC packs.
AC 3 will leave Renaissance Europe and Ezio Auditore behind as the game moves to the Mohawk Valley region of Upstate New York during the Revolutionary War. I happen to live very close to the Mohawk Valley so I’m really looking forward to seeing this region as the setting for the game, which looks like it will take place mainly in the forests as opposed to cities.
Desmond Miles will be back but this time he is reliving the events of his ancestor, Connor Kenway, who fought during the American Revolution. Ubisoft has claimed that the game will be bigger than previous titles and will complete the story of Desmond Miles.
Here is the announcement trailer from Ubisoft.
