Based on a recent report published by the Associated Press, the future “Assassin’s Creed” games will take a leap further back in time, instead of going forward. Developers communicated new details about the much –awaited “Assassin’s Creed III” version during an interview released on Thursday at the Comic-Con event.
The biggest question at present among the “Assassin’s Creed” fans is when will the third game be released. The developing company, Ubisoft Entertainment, agreed to provide several more details in relation to the upcoming product, so gamers would know what they should expect from it.
According to the game’s creative director, Alex Hutchinson, the action of the “Assassin’s Creed III” will be set around the time of the American Revolution, as opposed to the previous versions which took place around the Crusades and the Renaissance. However, developers think it is best if they continue setting the action of their future games in a more distant past instead of setting it after the Independence Day. He explained that the company may “run out of history” if they continue to leap from one generation to another so fast.
Gamers who were present at the Comic-Con presentation on Thursday were able to get a glimpse of the latest installment. Developers showed them a few sequences from “Assassin’s Creed III”, thus, displaying an early rendition of Boston. Judging by the looks of the scenes, the Native American protagonist, Connor will ascend a lot of brick buildings and meet many red coats and Scottish brawlers.
As the crowd was watching the presentation, Hutchinson told people that the third game was modified at the last minute. Developers gave the half-Mohawk, half-English assassin Connor the possibility to scalp his enemies, but they chose to remove this option, in the end. The explanation he provided was that the method was too horrifying to be introduced in the game.
“Assassin’s Creed III” will be released on October 30. The company did not provide other details in relation to the price of the game.
