I'm not even a fan of the series, and I'm psyched for this:

[QUOTE][URL="http://www.digitalspy.com/gaming/news/a369141/assassins-creed-iii-to-feature-thousand-man-battles.html"]Assassin's Creed III will star a half-English, half-Native American protagonist named Connor and take place in New York and Boston between 1753 and 1783, it has been reported.[/URL][/QUOTE]

I'm still waiting for a game where we get to play from the Templars' perspective.

Multiplayer doesn't count.

I'm geeking out HARD about the Revolutionary War setting. And in the artworak he's wielding tomahawks and guns, that's pretty badass.

I'm hoping George Washington or Ben Franklin will become cosplay trends.

Yeah, I am very interested to see how this goes. I think the American Revolution is in my top 5 periods of history, as geeky as that is that I even have a top 5.

I still have to play Revelations, but I've got plenty of time. I probably won't even play AC3 until 2013, I'm sure. Haha.

The artwork and screen caps look awesome!

How great would that be? XD

Yeah, it's a fascinating period. Though I'm actually more of an American Civil War buff. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that AC4 will star a Black freeman and take place in New Orleans or Boston between 1855 and 1865.

This thread reminds me: I still gotta beat the first game.

Civil War tops American Revolution in my history period list too, haha. I was really into it when I was in middle school, for some reason. I even had this strategy computer game set in the Civil War that I loved playing! Anyway... *cough*

But the setting of this game certainly does sound exciting! Maybe I should just skip all of the previous games and just play this one.

You'll be really lost on the modern day set scenes if you do that, though! But I guess all would not be lost. :)

I'm not even a fan of the AC series per se and I love the AC3 setting. I'm tempted to go back and play 1 & 2. Is it worth it?

I think they're worth it, though if you really want the whole story leading up to 3 then you'd need to (unfortunately?) play Brotherhood & Revelations as well. I think the original Assassin's Creed was a fantastic game on its own, though a lot of people found it repetitive.

AC2 was an awesome game, and the new locale is a nice shot in the arm the franchise needs, but MAN, having this ship 2 weeks after Bioshock Infinite is the BEST way for me to not care about a game.

#13 The Hag on 7 years ago

Honestly? I'm not going to bother playing the first two. I watched my son play a fair amount and know the basic plot points. If I want more detail I'll read up online.

I'm really looking forward to seeing how they're going to use the free-running in forests and mountains since there weren't giant buildings in the New World at that time.

We don't care that you don't care. :P

Between this and bioshock infinite, they just might.
