I’m still wrapping my head around the whole “Assassin’;s Creed in 1776” thing. Maybe it’s because I am currently playing a lot of the 1812: Invasion of Canada boardgame but I’m starting to warm to the idea of tomahawking a red coat.
These new screens do a good job of showing you what Ubi is after here.
Basically, tomahawking red coats.

I’m so on the fence about this whole thing. I think it’s a great time period to explore in a videogame, but in the AC world I just don’t know. I love the concept of running around in the trees, but is it just going to basically be a skin over Venice with leaves. Heck trees would have been the tallest things in America at the time as buildings would have been considered very tall if they were over 3 stories.. As much as I love the AC series I’m not seeing anything new, and if I want to play the same game again I’ll just replay the games I already have.
I think AC has life left in it as long as they do something more than just running around and killing Templars. OTOH, throwing axes at read coats does seem pretty badass, but I thinking there might be a whole country in Europe that doesn’t like that idea.
Hey, leave Estonia out of this!
More seriously though, I agree that this is a pretty cool setting to explore, and this is actually making me want to play through the recent ACs so I’ll be ready to go when this one releases.
Plus, who doesn’t love tomahawking in general? Also, canoeing? The stereotypical Canadian in me is chortling with glee.
so let me get this straight… no flying double flip thing out of a Sequoia
A fricking Canoe!?
[tap] is this thing on? Am I on those crazy pills again?
As a Boston resident, I’m intrigued. Just seeing the screenshots of the Old North Church. I don’t know. The idea of running around colonial Boston and New York sounds pretty awesome. That being said, I don’t see anything different here besides. If it wasn’t for these particular settings, I probably wouldn’t be interested at all. Brotherhood was disappointing for me, and I didn’t even waste my time with Revelations. I don’t know… I’m just tired of it. Maybe these colonial, New World settings are meant to draw us in. Aside from that… Meeeeh
In actual history, British protection of Native American nations was one of the major reasons for the American Revolution. Not the only reason, but certainly the sine qua non. Given that, why do we think our New Assassin will be going after Red Coats?
Was that George Washington at the end of the trailer? Seems like a good target for an assassin who is part of a nation allied with the Brits…
Well, the trailer and screenshots directly show him killing Red Coats, so I think we can safely assume he’s on America’s side.
Or were you asking about his motivations for siding with America? If that’s the case then I’d say either (a) he isn’t a Native American, only maybe trained by them (likely since this should still be an ancestor to Desmond and descendant of Altair and Ezio) and/or (b) America likes to ignore the whole “we were horrible to natives” bit and this game might ignore that too. The whole series plays loose with history, after all.
