Assassin's Creed III will be set through the period of the American Revolution, 1753 to 1783.
As a half-English, half-Native American you play as Connor Kenway. As is normal from the AC series the game will also feature the "present day" setting, where you get to be our regular 2012 character, Desmond Miles.

This is the final time out for Des, as you take him through his conclusive adventure to prevent the 2012 apocalypse. Lets take a look to see what the OFFICIAL Assassins Creed 3 System Requirements are like...
