Game Informer released today their cover for their April edition of their magazine, and it looks like its going to be Assassin’s Creed 3 making it’s debut on the cover.
Taken from the link above, It’s going to be set in the late 1800′s America and will have conflict between Native Americans and the Revolutionaries. Though this is the only information they have released, So it’s really all up in the air about who the new star of the game will be, and what his story is.
I can’t wait to be honest. I think that this is a nice change from the Eastern world we’ve been in with Altiar and Ezio. I’m so sad to see Ezio’s story end, But like all good things, It must happen (Maybe it’s because Ezio was such a charmer and ladies man).
The only thing doubting in my mind will be the landscapes. From what I’ve gathered from Game Informer, the new protagonist is of Native American descent (In one of the concept art shown below, He’s got feathers on his bow and arrow as well a tomahawk). I can see it possibly having a somewhat red dead feel to the landscapes. I mean, It’s the American Revolution, It’s not going to be as epic as early Italy(The landscapes in AC2 and Brotherhood blew me away, Revelations I was MEH about the landscapes.. Small map, dull architectural spaces, Etc. ) I’m hoping for a lot of roaming in the wilderness, Maybe some hunting wolves to make clothes, escaping from the American’s with their guns on horseback, Etc.
I really do think that this game will hold up to the previous installments, but to what avail?
As I’ve said before here on this blog, I’m a very much story driven player. I find myself rushing through the main missions and missing all the side missions, Just because I’m so caught up in the story that i NEED to know what is going to happen next. I tried my best to not let this happen in Revelations but… my love of Ezio got the better of me. What will the missions be like… and the side missions…. The assassin brotherhood?
Something else that has gotten me thinking is; this is the third installment, And with each game we get closer and closer to modern time… This game will be set in the 1800′s… Will Assassin’s Creed 4 have our main character, Desmond, as a modern-day assassin in the modern time? If so, I hope someone clues up the Lucy story! They didn’t even touch on it in Revelations.
So to sum up because I realize I rambled a little there(something I’m good at), I can’t wait for this game to make its debut on October 30th! I’m so pumped to see what exactly the last three years have created! I still haven’t heard anything on the multi player, but when I do, I’ll be sure to post about it!
So as we say goodbye to one of our most beloved characters, We welcome a new chapter into our lives.
Ezio, It’s been real.
