Assassin’s Creed III’s First Trailer

Gabriel Graziani's Avatar + Posted by Gabriel Graziani on Mar 05, 2012 // Community Developer, Ubisoft

Hey there PlayStation Assassins!

After several years of work, by hundreds of some of the most talented developers on the planet, we are extraordinarily pleased to show you the very first official trailer for Assassin’s Creed III. Today, we’d like to offer a glimpse of the rich backdrop provided by the American Revolution, as well as sneaking in some details about our Native American protagonist: Connor.

Keep your eyes peeled for a certain historic figure you may recognize (trust me, he’ll be hard to miss)… and ponder his role both in a story of the foundation of a nation and the ceaseless conflict between the Templars and Assassins.

As previously announced, Assassin’s Creed III ships for PS3 on October 30, 2012.

If Benedict Arnold isn’t a Templar, then there will be a huuuuuge missed opportunity here. Also: I hear you can assassinate bears.

BEARS.

Game of the Year.

Hey Gabriel,

What can PlayStation 3 owners expect from AC III which is not possible on the other platforms? ..like following Bioshock Infinite’s lead and including free copies of Assassin’s Creed 1 and 2 on the Bluray ?

First you played as Altaïr ibn La’Ahad, then you played as Ezio Auditore da Firenze and now you’ll play as … wait for it … Connor! I hope he has an exciting last name. :-)

Great looking trailer!

Is is just me or do the character models in this CG trailer look, how shall I say, dated? Nonetheless, the concept is intriguing and I’ll be following this to see how it pans out.

The series is finally coming to a close ehhh. Sad I love the Assassins Creed game. I got all of them since 2007. Good to see its coming to an end. Hopefully its the longest one!

I have to say, as a Pee Dee and Seminole Native, this game has really excited me. There arent many games that centralize on Native Americans. Cannot wait for October 30th.

This comes out two days before my birthday. I will be purchasing it. Nice trailer. I remember that Mel Gibson movie that is based on.

+ saintaqua on March 5th, 2012 at 10:41 am said:

I disliked the previous ones but this one looks too awesome to pass up.
Any PS3 exclusive content? What about Vita?

+ FearMonkey on March 5th, 2012 at 10:52 am said:

Looks awesome but I haven’t played Assassin’s Creed II, Brotherhood or Revelations yet.

Gabriel, do you think it’s possible for Ubisoft to release an Assassin’s Creed II collection that includes AC2, Brotherhood and Revelations? You could even fit them on one blu-ray disc I bet. I would buy that in a second. :)

I love this series. Nothing more fun after a day of work than coming home and stabbing many people unnecessarily. I really enjoy the stealth aspects of this series. Of course I’ll buy this, especially with the steel case.

+ DROPGRAVY on March 5th, 2012 at 11:21 am said:

I hope they really included conspiracy theory stuff with freemasons, templars, and illuminati ,

then it would be epic

+ excaliber45 on March 5th, 2012 at 11:29 am said:

It kind of saddens me; I thought it’d take place during the French Revolution but I guess it had to become an Ameri-centric series. “Oh the last hope for humanity is in Upstate New York.” -__- props for doing the series but I might not pick this one up

Glad to see new story. Ezio was getting very stale for me. love the tree free running.

@firedude7 – I didn’t know this was the game engine running. I’m more impressed now than skeptical.

Love it…. but some of the comments… SMH

FIRST OFF…. It takes place in America in1777 (It said the year in the beginning of the trailer) during the American Revolutionary War.

Second…..The Assassin is a Native American ..so his name will not be Connor Smith (or what not).

Third…… Benedict Arnold can’t start as a Templar. He was very patriotic when he was fighting, but let greed overtake his patriotism. That and the constant being passed up for promotion is what made him turncoat. I can see the story line if he decided to switch and become a Templar during the war.

I can’t wait… I wished they went to Asia or Africa before they brought the story of the fight between Assassins and Templars to the shores of the Americas.

Pre-ordering this later this week. I want that steelbook =)

Better be safe and go with Gamestop because they’ve held the only pre-order bonuses for the past 3 games.

+ Ryusennin on March 5th, 2012 at 1:04 pm said:

This whole American Revolution backdrop is so anticlimactic.

This has definitely convinced me to NOT buy this last episode.

+ TuttiCicero on March 5th, 2012 at 2:14 pm said:

Personally, I’m utterly disappointed in the sell-out that is AC3. We were in europe for EVERY Assassins Creed prior to this one and then all of the sudden – 1777 AD The American Revolutionary war?!

I will not being buying this game specifically because of the setting. There is absolutely no ties from what has happened in the series to America UNLESS ubisoft is attempting to portray America as the start/end for all the corruption (Templar Knights) – which would be somewhat true and I would then reconsider.

+ MOPARFUL99 on March 5th, 2012 at 2:25 pm said:

OHHHH… MYYYY…. GOD… That looks absolutely incredible… I became very bored of the assassins creed franchise but this look phenomenal… I’m gonna have to buy this

Probably will be my only other purchase of the year for gaming. I really wish people would shut up about it being in America. It’s a great setting and perfect for the story to continue on. This is a game series. Not a movie.
