As Casey mentioned yesterday in TL;DR, Ubisoft was on the verge of a big announcement and today we got our first look at Assassin’s Creed 3.
The cover art tells us a few things about the future of the franchise. As I’m sure most were able to figure out, it’s set in the late 1700s during the American Revolution. If this is true, the events in AC3 will take place 200ish years in the future. It’s also safe to say a new character will be playable this time around as AC: Revelations wrapped up the story of Ezio Auditore.
