When it comes to Assassin’s Creed III’s protagonist Connor, we know the basics. He’s a half-Native-American, half-European male who gets himself wrapped up in the Revolutionary War. We also know, because of the series’ story, that he’s an ancestor of Desmond Miles, and that he’s an Assassin. That development of that last part, as well as some other details, have been revealed in a new trailer from Ubisoft.
Titled “An Assassin’s Journey,” the latest trailer gives fans a glimpse of the new hero’s life leading up to the events of Assassin’s Creed III. It’s a sure bet that this information will be expanded on in the game, but for now, it’s nice to have a small morsel of what promises to be a compelling, complex story of American history and clashing cultures. It’s a short (unsurprisingly beautiful) video, so I won’t spoil the rest of it. Give it a watch![youtube id=”3oYtCAsqQ2g” width=”620″ height=”360″]
Assassin’s Creed III will be available October 30 on PS3, Xbox 360, PC, and November 18 for the Wii U.
