By: Eddie Makuch How would history be different if George Washington succumbed to the allure of infinite power? Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed III will answer that question through downloadable content called “The Tyranny of King George.” A single-player campaign delivered through three episodes, the content tasks players will dethroning Washington and returning freedom to the colonies. Ubisoft had no qualms about altering history, according to executive producer Sebastien Puel. “History is our playground, and [Assassin’s Creed] teams have always loved playing with historical […]

What we can learn from the latest screenshots Yesterday, Ubisoft released a slew of new Assassin’s Creed III screenshots. While they don’t offer quite as much information as the game’s first images, we can still learn a lot. Here, we see Connor looking down at Boston Harbor. While much of the verticality in Assassin’s Creed III will come from climbing trees, this shot confirms that the game will also feature plenty of the franchise’s usual rooftop scaling.

Assassin’s Creed III’s main character – everything we know so far We find revelations in the details
Everything we know
His name is Connor, and he’s an assassin.
We don’t have all that much information on Assassin’s Creed III’s main character, but after looking at thebox art, the images released in Game Informer, and the leaks from different magazines and websites, we’re able to learn a lot about him.

He uses a tomahawk in the shape of the Assassin’s Creed “A”
The new assassin’s tomahawk looks like it’s going to be his crowbar. Every image shows it in his hand, ready to be plunged into the chest of a British soldier (or, more likely, general). The fact that it’s shaped like the Assassin’s Creed “A” makes it even cooler, and we can’t…
