Assassin’s Creed 3 takes place during the American Revolution of the 18th century and introduces a new assassin named Connor. The hero becomes the new voice for justice in the war between the Assassins and Templars.
An unprecedented scope and scale is featured in the game as the war rages from the high seas to untamed frontiers and bustling colonial towns of early America. The developers went to great lengths to digitally recreate the Revolution with historical accuracy.

No specific release dates regarding the content packages have been revealed. All downloadable content will also be released for Wii U but no season pass is expected to be offered.
Assassin’s Creed 3 is set to release on Oct. 30 for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. A version for Wii U is expected to release on Nov. 18 and for PC on Nov. 20.
