Set against the backdrop of the American Revolution in the late 18th century, Assassins Creed III introduces a new hero, Connor, as he becomes the new voice for justice. Gamers will become an Assassin in the war for liberty against ruthless tyranny, in the most stylized and fluid combat experiences in the franchise to date.
