SAN FRANCISCO – Ubisoft on Monday revealed that the next installment to its blockbuster “Assassin’s Creed” videogame franchise will be set in the US colonies during the American Revolution.
“Assassin’s Creed III” will be released on October 30 and star a new hero in a series of games that moves from one generation to another as players follow the ancestry of a fictional assassin to solve a perilous modern-day mystery.
“You’re going to be blown away,” said Ubisoft chief executive Yves Guillemot.
