Assassin’s Creed III Box Art

Ubisoft Reveals New Revolutionary Theme

March 1, 2012 by

Ubisoft has just released the official box art for Assassin’s Creed III, and no, today isn’t an April Fool’s Day hoax (that’s still a month away). The next AC game is in fact going to be switching locales and taking place in colonial America. To add to the new Assassin’s Creed revelations, Game Informer has also just shown off their magazine’s April cover with a brief teaser that gives some insight into the plot of the upcoming fifth installment in the franchise’s main series:

“Set in the latter half of the 18th century, we’ll see the war between the Templars and the Assassins escalate as it crosses over to the New World of America, and witness firsthand the events of the American Revolution. Caught in the conflict is a daring new hero in the Assassin’s Creed franchise. We have the full story of this new hero and the striking game in which he stars, along with exclusive screens and art from the project, all packed into a massive 13-page cover story.”
