Watch The AC3 Boston Tea Party Trailer
I’ll admit it. The advertising for Assassin’s Creed 3 is really, really effective. Take this latest trailer. It begins as a sort of cliff’s notes guide to the Boston Massacre, and then flips into the AC series secret history premise. Standard stuff for the series, but it’s the best look yet into how deeply into the lore of the American Revolution this game is going to get, and fills me with a kind of hope that we’re going to see a ton of the era’s most iconic moments. The Boston Tea party is obviously a mission; will we also see the midnight ride of Paul Revere, the brutal winter at Valley Forge, or (Hope Hope) the execution of Nathan Hale? Please say yes, Ubisoft.
Here’s the Boston Tea Party trailer.
