The rumors about the setting of the upcoming third installment of Assassin’s Creed were confirmed when the box art hit the web yesterday – and now a slew of new details are being revealed courtesy of Game Informer, who will feature a cover story on the game in their next issue:
“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.”
We’re guessing that this news will have most fans of the series pretty psyched. However, we’ll have to wait until the official release on October 30. In the meantime, you can check out the cover for the upcoming Game Informer issue after the break.
