Assassin’s Creed III was developed by Ubisoft Montreal and first released on October 30, 2012 for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Though the name might be misleading, it is actually the fifth game in the Assassin’s Creed series. Thus far, every numbered game has introduced a new protagonist to the series. This time around we take control of Ratonhnhaké:ton, or as he is more commonly called, Connor.
The game takes place in the 1700’s, around the time of the American Revolution, and Connor is half Mohawk Native American and half British. The game centers around Connor’s struggle to protect his people from the encroaching American and British soldiers. As with previous Assassin’s Creed games, there is also a parallel story being told in the present day through the character of Desmond.
So how does Assassin’s Creed III stack up against previous games? Let us take a look.
