Confirmed: Assassin’s Creed 3 set in America

Update: Ubisoft has posted Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 pack shots for Assassin’s Creed 3 on the game’s Facebook page, confirming that the new game will be set in America.

Don your favourite white hoody and climb onto your nearest rooftop (health and safety notice: don’t) because it looks like Assassin’s Creed 3 has been outed early by a Best Buy employee who sent the above image to Kotaku.

Using our Sherlock Holmes levels of deduction, we can see the image strongly suggests the rumours about the next Assassin’s Creed game being set during the American Revolution have an element of truth to them. Was it the flag that gave it away?

The assassin hood certainly looks familiar, but the bow, tomahawk and non-wrist mounted pistol are all new toys. The tomahawk and native American-looking bow might also be a clue to the new assassin’s ethnicity.

This comes ahead of Ubisoft’s tease on the Assassin’s Creed Facebook page that stated “A major announcement from Assassin’s Creed is only days away.” The source at Best Buy suggests this announcment could be coming on March 5.
