Poor Ubisoft. Trying to spring a surprise these days must be absolute hell when there are so many grubby journalists, ourselves included, eager to dig up anything and everything ahead of schedule.
But the game's pretty much up. Assassin's Creed III will be set in revolutionary America, have a part-Native American protagonist, and feature lots and lots of British-bashing. In more ways than one. Oh, and there are four new screenshots for you to check out. One is above, the rest are after the jump.
We'll be discussing this in Sunday's PWNCAST, ruminating on the period's potential for gameplay changes, the lack of tall buildings, the forgettable locales, and moaning about how we never got any of that tea back.
As a Brit-run site, we rather hope that Benedict Arnold is a playable character in the multiplayer, and that, as Jon put it earlier, the final boss is George III, who turns out to be an alien, and attack us with hot cups of tea. And a crumpet cannon. [AGB]
