Well it seems like the rumours are right and that Assassin’s Creed III will be taking place in America right in the middle of the American Revolutionary War, which took place between 1775 and 1783.
The images are supposedly part of the games box set posted on Facebook by Ubisoft. However, later it has been claimed that the images have come from someone who works at BestBuy. Ubisoft have not made any comments on the image, the only good news from this is that Ubisoft say that Assassin’s Creed III will be out on the 30th October for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC.
