Assassin's Creed III Set During American Revolution, Cover Released

Ubisoft has released the cover art for Assassin’s Creed III. The cover art features a hooded assassin preparing to kill a British soldier with a tomahawk. Behind them we have what seems to be a rather large battle between British and American forces, confirming the long-running rumour that the next Assassin’s Creed would be set during the America revolution.

Game Informer has also revealed that the April issue of the magazine will feature a lengthy cover story on the upcoming game.

“Set in the latter half of the 18th century, we’ll see the war between the Templars and the Assassins escalate as it crosses over to the New World of America, and witness firsthand the events of the American Revolution. Caught in the conflict is a daring new hero in the Assassin’s Creed franchise. We have the full story of this new hero and the striking game in which he stars, along with exclusive screens and art from the project, all packed into a massive 13-page cover story.”

Assassin’s Creed 3 is set for release on October 30 for the PC, Xbox360, and PS3.
