Assassin’s Creed 3 will Educate as well as Entertain


Believe it or not, there was a time in America when the words “tea party” referred to something other than a controversial political movement. It referred not to a group that at times seems to tear the country apart, but to an event which brought us all together for the very first time.  A new trailer for Assassin’s Creed 3 pays tribute to the Boston Tea Party, and you can watch it if you read on.

So here it is, the latest trailer for Assassin’s Creed 3, which plays more like a history lesson than a videogame preview.  But it’s pretty damn cool, nonetheless.  Check it out below.  Protip: the actual trailer is only 1:40 long.  Everything after that is advertising.

So, nothing new as far as gameplay goes.  I think they’ve been using that leaping overhead musket impalement shot in every trailer for the past year or so.  I do like the art style on display here.  The chipped and faded paint was a very nice touch, and it made it feel as if the camera was really flying through a historical painting.  I’m also very intrigued by the revolution “that mattered.”  Alternate history and secret history are fertile grounds for story telling, and it appears as if the developers will be taking full advantage of it. 

With the game’s October 30th release quickly approaching, you can expect a lot more hype from Ubisoft in the coming weeks.  If you missed their recent 4 part “Inside Assassin’s Creed 3” series, it’s worth a look.  Parts one and two can be watched here, while three and four are here.

Joe was born in a time of war. A console war. Two electronic titans were locked in a heated battle for the living rooms of America. Which titans, you ask? Well, the Fairchild Channel F and the Atari 2600 of course. You see, Joe is old. So many of his favorite games tend to be on the older side as well. But that hasn’t stopped him from developing unhealthy obsessions with such modern franchises as Halo and Mass Effect. Just don’t tell him how long it’s been since the original Metroid was released. His aging heart can’t take the shock.
