Silent, deadly and wielding a hand-blade in the shadows, Assassin's Creed is back to unveil a new entry in the infamous storyline. The last time we saw Desmond Miles was during his adventures with Ezio Auditore in Assassin's Creed: Revelations. Set to make a return with a new ancestor is the next installment in the main series: Assassin's Creed III.
Assassin's Creed has become one of the biggest video game series to originate from Canada (created by Ubisoft). The story follows the adventures of Desmond Miles and the secrets hidden within his memories that are locked and passed down from each of his assassin ancestors. While the previous games in the series have been set in Europe and Asia, Assassin's Creed 3 marks the first Assassin's Creed game to star in North America - primarily during the American Revolution. It'll be a nice change for the dynamic of the storyline which means that the timeline between Desmond and his ancestors will eventually sync in the next few entries.
Rumours have circulated that a female assassin may be worked in as a controllable protagonist in the next iteration. However, only time will tell if that truly happens. Until then, feel free to check out the announcement trailer for Assassin's Creed 3.
