Assassin’s Creed III details escape; character, location revealed

The lead character in this year’s Assassin’s Creed looks to be a Native American fella. An apparent BestBuy worker has snagged a shot of the promotional poster below for the upcoming game, showing the character — armed with a tomahawk and bow — in full.

As the Continental flag in the background suggests, the game will take place during the American revolution.

Game Informer has made a slip, too, posting the banner for their AC3 hub early. It was caught by a user and posted on NeoGaf here.

None of this is officially-official yet then, though Ubisoft has teased for a “major” AC announcement in the coming days, so expect that to change soon enough.

As previously confirmed, Assassin’s Creed III will be out this October.
