I did indeed say it was inevitable, my good sir.

But I shall continue to bitch, because my main problem with it remains: I'm simply over games set in America.

I know this era in history is hardly ever visited, but I haven't seen much of a focus on the French Revolution either. It's the America part I take issue with, not the event of the American Revolution itself.

America just doesn't interest me anymore, as it's oversaturated in gaming. The French Revolution would be something different, for me at least.

Also, I'm part French.

I doubt ubisoft will miss the chance to throw in a few french major characters due to their involvement in the war.

However.

The French revolution would have been a much better choice. That was a war fought by the people to take down a tyrannical government that was ruling irresponsibly (helping the americans fight a war lol). Perfect for the assassins. Also it's ubisoft, being a French company I'm very surprised they haven't jumped on this idea yet.
Unfortunately, in American schools they teach the American revolution like 3 times and you have to take AP European history to even learn anything about the French revolution.
I'm still very excited for this game regardless.

And there's still hope. Both these revolutions were tied together so there's a chance we could see the french revolution featured in assassins creed III brotherhood/ revelations

Kingme18:
Aaaaannndddd this game just became a must buy for me!

Agreed, its the Tomahawk that sealed the deal for me. I bet they will replace the throwing knives.

And he will definitely not stand out in this outfit... Although that would probably be true for most time periods ^^

Bernzz:
Goddamn it, I wanted Egypt. Or the French Revolution.

If this isn't fake, my interest in this game has plummeted. I want some variety, not another game focusing on America.

Disclaimer: To counteract the inevitable member bitching at me for being anti-American, I'm not. I'm just sick of games set in and focusing on America. They could go to any point in history, really, and they chose America. As I feared.

Oh yeah, I forgot how often the American Revolution is looked at. I'm just drowning in games based in that time period.

For your last point, I hope so. I'll still probably end up getting this game, unless it's another copy-pasted renovating TV show disguised as a game about assassins. Also, multiple cities like ACII would be good.

I'd like to believe that the development time they've had will let them produce a game of ACII's calibre, but part of me expects another half-assed Brotherhood/Revelations clone.

But I'm a pessimist.

If this is for realsies, I am a tap-dancing panda.

undeadsuitor:
I'm interest to see how Assassins operate in a world of guns and projectile weaponry.

I imagine it will be like Rocksteady's Batman games, where you're encouraged to pick them off subtly and without taking the risk of getting shot to bits. Which I'm very much looking forward to from an Assassin's Creed game.

OT: Pretty damn excited, I like the Native Americans. I may need to play Brotherhood and Revelations quickly, but count me back into being interested in the series.

Really? I learned about it in the 9th grade. Although it was a world history class and the teacher could teach what ever he wanted.

And now i don't care.
Its not the time thats inherently the problem, its the location. You know why i loved brotherhood and finished revelations, the CITIES. These marvellously detailed and living places. Which i dont see working in this setting.

Give me 1920's new york over this any day, that would have been BITCHIN!

I knew they wouldn't do it. I had a slight hope that they'd drop the whole animus thing and go have the expected game about Desmond and the world in 2012 but I doubted they'd try it.

Janus Vesta:
Can we have a source on this? I'm not really doubting you but I've seen plenty of high quality fan art for Assassin's Creed in the American and French revolutions.

I saw it on IGN who got the story from Kotaku who claim that it was given to them by an employee at Best Buy who got it from Best Buys internal employee news. http://ps3.ign.com/articles/121/1219745p1.html

So there is pretty good chance that this is real but until Monday when Ubisoft is going to make a major announcement about AC we don't really know for a 100%.

Edit: Also this: http://kotaku.com/5889536/game-informer-accidentally-leaks-another-assassins-creed-iii-image

Also it looks like the main character might be Native American. Which if true would be SWEET. I can't think of a game where a Native American was the protagonist. About time we got some recognition.

A few months ago, when the series still held my love, I'd be all over this. Now? Now I can barely muster a meh. Revelations destroyed my enthusiasm for the series. Oh, I'll get it, and I'll still play it, but I'm not gonna preorder. Not gonna drop full price on this game hot off the shelves, might wait until it's down to at least half that, maybe even longer. Brotherhood was amazing. Revelations shot itself in the face it blundered too hard.

Wow this has actually renewed my faith in assassins creed, if it turns out to be accurate. I actually predicted the American Revolution. It's actually a pretty interesting time period that isnt explored that much in games. I might actually pick up revelations, if its true.

I really don't dig that character design if it's for real, but I've been hoping ever since I finished AC2 that the third game would be set during the American Revolution and star a Native American character, so this is pretty damn cool if true. Maybe enough to get me back into the series, as long as there isn't a sniff of Ezio in it. I just hope they handle having a Native main character well, and don't fall into cliches.

If it's real, I'm guessing the character would be Iroquois because the revolution was an extremely hectic time for their confederacy, causing civil war within the tribes (some sided with the British, some sided with the Americans).

Be more descriptive when you use the word "it"
A simpleton might think you're arguing the point on how many times you learned about the American Revolution. That argument being you only learned about it once rather than three times.
In which case the simpleton would respond "my point remains valid"

Upon re-reading the simpleton realizes what you were arguing about something else.

My response:
You said yourself the teacher was teaching whatever he wanted. And a lot of world history teachers may not do that.
Also, world history was a non-required social studies elective at my school. You could easily say that not even 40% of the children know anything about it.
THE SIMPLETONS POINT REMAINS VALID STILL!

How could the ancestor be a native american. Th bloodline runs from the middle east to italia making it impossible to include a native american. I really had my heart set on victorian london because I was interested more in that and im not sure how you could have the extremely tall buildings in colonial america but i supose we can only wait and see.

Prey had one and so did Turok I think but those are the only two I can think of. I still cant understand how a Native american fits in the bloodline.

This looks pretty awesome and Assassins Creed has now regained my interest.

A bit of an overreaction. I wasn't debating I was stating. I honestly don't see why you needed to reply at all. As a reply I guess yeah that's what I said. . . . . . . Not much more too it. Ok I guess that's done.

I was correcting you in your confusing use of the word it. I got a happy feeling knowing an actual person was going to read it so I went to fucking town.
Since you decided to actually debate me on something I'll continue to talk. THANK YOU!

I suppose I do get a little scatterbrained later at night so I could see the the "it" thing.
For the rest of that I am not sure what we are talking about so I am just going to say I agree, to try and avoid a conflict.

I fucking love tomahawks.

And i'm pretty hyped for this since it's been made for 3 years, unlike the pretty mediocre cash-ins that Brotherhood and Revelations were.

OH FOR FUCKS SAKE CAN WE NOT KEEP ONE FUCKING GAME UNDERWRAPS UNTIL IT'S DONE?!
This industry is leakier than a prostitute with a bad cough.

What, another one already? damn they really are pumping these games out.
Meh...can't say this image makes me care about the game, it's not really a setting that interests me

I'm one of those weird people who finished AC1 and really liked, but didn't like AC2 and never finished it because I got bored with it. But I have to agree with some others in this thread. That outfit looks pretty bad. Also, I would much more have wanted to see the spanish invading south america, feudal japan, or old london/france than the american revolution. The indians are great and all, but they don't really fit into the assassin's order in my opinion.

HELL YES!

This just went from "rent or maybe buy secondhand" to a day-1 purchase for me.

And all you people bitching about it being set in America... what the hell, seriously? It's the first game in the series to take place in the new world, and there are almost no games of any kind that take place during the revolution. Oversaturation my ass, this is the closest thing there is to a new and unique historical setting for a video game--seriously, I can't name a single other game.

As for concerns about the lack of buildings... there were several large cities in that time period, certainly nothing the size of Rome or w/e but it will offer them an opportunity to make the cities a bit more "to scale" and they will probably take up as much or more game area than the major cities in previous games.

In conclusion: DO FUCKING WANT. (Also, fingers crossed for scalping coming into play in one way or another)

How could the ancestor be a native american. Th bloodline runs from the middle east to italia making it impossible to include a native american.

Actually the bloodline doesn't run from the Middle East to Italy, Ubisoft has come out and said that Altair and Ezio aren't actually related. Desmond is the descendant of both Altair and Ezio but they have different bloodlines that merged with Desmond's family. So it's entirely possible for this third ancestor to be entirely unrelated to the previous protagonists.

PimpHandofGod:
I remain unconvinced til I hear it from the horses mouth. "Best Buy employee said so" is not what I would call a reliable source.

Don't you know horses are pathological liars?

OT:Not sure how I feel about this. It could work I guess, but the setting isn't really important for the quality. The best setting can be screwed up and bad settings can give us wonderful games. I would wait for more information before making up my mind here. I would also wait until I get confirmation if this is false or not too.

Hurrzar! Even less reason for me to buy this game!
God Bless Amerkuh!

(on topic)
Having the Giant American background is going to sell well to the AMERICANS!
but not the rest of the world.
Being from England "now residing in Australia"
This game gives me no reason to buy it.
Kind of like All of them. "except for the first one Otherwise known as the bset one"
All the characters are annoying Desmond miles is a whore and personally i dont want to kill badly Portrayed English people.

Desmond does live in USA so it kinda makes sense the closer to modern times we get the closer his ancestors live to where he lives.
Still not really the fan of american revolution.
And it still be fake or misleading on purpose or something.

Correct me if I am wrong, but weren't most of the cities in America at the time pretty small? I mean, compared to the big cities we've seen in earlier game (Constantinople and Rome both had inhabitants in the hundreds of thousands range) and their grand architecture I have a hard time getting excited at the prospect of parkouring through Philly anno 1789. Maybe they intend to mix up the gameplay completely, in which case that objection is pretty irrelevant, but I kind of doubt it.

Corporal Yakob:
Cool!!!!!!

So lets our place our bets on which of the Founding Fathers were secretly Templar bastards: I bet we will have to fight George Washington!

Well considering the fact Washington was part of masonic lodge... Then yes, I would be disappointed if They weren't tied to Templars.

Then again with how They tied several historical figures to already be part of the Assassins Order, I also wouldn't be surprised if due to whole "America is always win" it wouldn't be the opposite with Founding Fathers secretly being part of the Assassins.

Hoping this is fake, too. I guess it DOES fit the "unexplored era" bill of the franchise, but this wouldn't have been my first choice. I was kinda rooting for Victorian England.

Also, I don't see this giving us the kind of scenery porn or the free-running opportunities I enjoyed so much in the other games.

And for the record: Revelations made me very happy.

-Edit:
...even though they treated Lucy poorly.

Dammit. I was hoping for a female protagonist. And a time period of location that games haven't explored before. Preferably European.

The milking of the franchise has made me somewhat sceptical of this game by now.

I REALLY hope that (i) They don't try to force the retarded plot from the previous games in, and (ii) that the games is more sophisticated than to put the British as the bad guys run by the Templars and the Americans as the good guys, perhaps where the Assassins fled to when defeated in Europe.

Also please include the French and everyone else who was involved in the conflict. I know some American state schools teach caricatures of their own history, but that's no reason to inflict it on the rest of us.

To everyone bitching about it being set in America, what the hell did you expect? This is a game series based on the ancestors of an... AMERICUN hurr durr. It seems logical that at some point in the timeline they would've had to make that bridge somehow.

At least there was real variety beforehand. I think they can be forgiven considering they've already done the Middle East and Renaissance Italy. Colonial America seems like a welcome change to me.

HURR DURR 'MURKA SUX!!!

OT: This is probably one of the worst locations they could have picked. Have you ever seen an 18th century colonial city? They were all filled with squat buildings! Maybe a few buildings were taller than 2 stories, but the majority weren't. And they weren't tightly packed like buildings in older countries like England, France, Spain, and Italy. The mid-19th century would have been a much better time period architecture-wise for being set in America.
