Assassin’s Creed 3 Trailer Looks Great, Hints at Political Motifs

If Assassin’s Creed III is as fun to play as this trailer is to watch, it’ll definitely be quite a title.

The first in-game video we’ve seen of the title, which the video notes is “pre-alpha” happens to look great. Lots of sweeping vistas of American landscape and lots of slaughtering of Redcoats. But from a more intellectual standpoint, it also hints at the political nature of the game and of the founding of the United States in general, sine its main character is (apparently) half Native American and half…not.

Of course, that brings up a lot of implications of tense, powerful issues that have been woven into American culture and history for centuries, and just how Assassin’s Creed is going to handle it is definitely something to keep an eye on, if you ask me.
