The game follows Connor, a half-Mohawk, half-European Assassin who stands by what’s right and finds himself fighting for both sides of the revolution throughout the war, all the while defending the Native Americans from both armies.
“The story of how he gets caught up in the war is the story of the game,” Hutchinson says. “So I won’t reveal too much.”
The creative director notes that it is “important to us that people understand the game is not the battle to win the American Revolution.”
The game starts before the war and continues past the final British surrender. The struggle at the heart of the game is not British versus Americans. Instead it is Assassins versus Templars, and there are plenty of Templars working on either side of the revolution.
