Ubisoft is gearing up for the fall already as a the first trailer for Assassin's Creed 3 debuts on the internet. As previously confirmed, the setting is the "new world" of 18th century America during the Revolutionary War. The new assassin, Conner is an outside of the dominant cultures, being the son of a colonist and a native woman.
Previous games had hinted at an important artifact in the plot being hidden somewhere in America. Now it looks like the third title will finally reveal the secret and hopefully give more closure on the 21st century character stringing all this together, Desmond Miles, a former New York bartender turned Assassin himself.
