New Assassin’s Creed III Trailer Incorporates Live Action
Ubisoft tapped into the nation’s patriotism Wednesday when it released a new, live-action trailer for the American Revolution-themed Assassin’s Creed III.
The action is set in 1775 with slow-motion scenes and haunting music. Each character portrait, including a young soldier, a priest, and a Parliament politician, brings a different persona to the game.
“There’s the American Revolution you know from history books. And then there’s the revolution you’ll be fighting,” the Ubisoft website said.
Players control protagonist Connor, a lone assassin fighting against enemies looking to win the war and control the 13 colonies. From city streets to battlefields, gamers will meet “legendary heroes of American history,” Ubisoft’s website said, “and together you will conspire to annihilate those who threaten Liberty itself.”
The new trailer’s first look at Connor comes at the very end, when the video jarringly moves from live-action players into an animated shot of the protagonist standing amongst red-coated soldiers.

Can’t wait till this game comes out. Mr. Illustr8r will be playing and I will be his “wingman” since I have terrible hand, eye, brain coordination when it comes to video games…but I am good at pointing out things that need to be killed or collected.
