10 things you need to know about: Assassin's Creed III

Tomorrow's the big day, so with Ubisoft's biggest title ever about to hit shelves, we take a look at Connor's ten vital points.


  1. Ubisoft Montreal (the lead Assassin's Creed studio) is running this one (they played a slightly lesser role in the last game as they were working on III).
  2. There's a new protagonist for the first time since Assassin's Creed 2 came out in 2009: Connor.
  3. The story spans 30 years all-in, running from 1753-1783.
  4. The setting is a fledgling America, fighting for independence and divided under the guidance of Lee and Washington.
  5. The new protagonist is merely an ancestor of the ongoing tale of Desmond Miles, who is reliving Connor's memory in a machine in a modern setting in order to continue his legacy of fighting against the Templars.
  6. Both the near-future and modern settings have fully playable components.
  7. Assassin's Creed III will introduce naval warfare, with Connor helming old school frigates for intense sea battles.
  8. Nintendo is getting some love this time around, with the game teed up as a launch title for the Wii U.
  9. Launching day and date on Vita is Assassin's Creed III: Liberation, which acts as a corrollary prequel title to the home console game, with its own protagonist: Aveline.
  10. This will be Ubisoft's biggest game release ever.
