Lead writer for Assassin’s Creed 3, Matt Turner has revealed there will be more modern day Desmond gameplay than any previous series entry.
This year supposedly marks the end of lead protagonist Desmond’s story with the in-game date of December 2012 labelled as when a world-ending catastrophe is due to occur.
Turner revealed a few tidbits about the upcoming sequel, “All I can say about Desmond’s story is you’re going to experience more Desmond than you’ve ever had before. We’re spending more time on the present than we have in past games.” He went on to tease, “It’s a big part of our story and I don’t really want to give too many details away because I want people to experience what that is. But rest assured, you’re going to see a lot of Desmond. More so than in any past game.”
Assassin’s Creed 3 is set during the American Revolution “taking gamers from the vibrant, untamed frontier to bustling colonial towns and the intense, chaotic battlefields where George Washington’s Continental Army clashed with the imposing British Army”. The game is set for release on Halloween for Xbox 360 and PS3 with no dates given to the PC and Wii U versions also in development.
