The released images, in combination with some early details from Game Informer, confirm suspicions that Assassin’s Creed 3 will take place in the latter half of the 18th century during the American Revolution. Weapons appear to include a bow, gun, and tomahawk, with the hatchet blade carved like the assassin’s crest. Also, this new assassin wears items of Native American heritage along with the traditional white assassin’s robe featuring a bald eagle on the beak of his cowl.
