Assassin's Creed III is a historical action-adventure open world stealth video game developed by Ubisoft Montreal and published by Ubisoft for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Wii U, and Microsoft Windows. It is the fifth major installment and the third numbered title in the Assassin's Creed series, and a direct sequel to 2011's Assassin's Creed: Revelations. The game was released worldwide for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, beginning in North America on October 30, 2012. A Wii U and Microsoft Windows version are released in November 2012.
The main portion of Assassin's Creed III is set before, during and after the American Revolution from 1753 to 1783, featuring a new half English and half Mohawk protagonist; Ratonhnhaké:ton ( /ˈrəduːnˈhəɡeɪduːn/; "Ra-doon-ha-gay-doon"), also known by the adopted name of "Connor". In addition to the historical period, the game also features the "present day" setting, where series protagonist Desmond Miles must adventure to prevent the 2012 apocalypse, as his story develops and reaches a conclusion. The game features a new engine, Anvil Next, built from the ground up, the engine is said to utilize full capability of current generation systems to deliver a "next-gen Assassin's Creed experience."
The game follows the series' standard open world gameplay in the Desmond and Haytham/Connor Sequences, where the game's main story takes place. New gameplay additions include muskets and rifles, which can be fired at a considerable reload time, or used as a melee weapon. Hiding places can now be mobile, such as haystacks in wagons or moving carts, which can be used to sneak up closer to targets. Disguises can also be worn, fooling normal troops and only risking investigation by officers.
Free running has been modified to allow for more fluid, parkour-like movement over certain obstacles. Exploration has also been modified, allowing for map areas to be revealed without requiring a viewpoint synchronization.
Close combat has been modified, slowing during blocks to allow for more options in attack and defense. Human shields can be taken against firing lines of enemies.
Assassin's Creed III features new weather simulations such as snow, fog, and rain. Depending on the seasons, weather determines how enemies/players will move around. Heavy snowfall makes it more difficult to travel.
Players are now able to trap and hunt animals for skins in the wilderness. Hostile animals, such as Bears and Wolves also exist, and will attack the player on sight. The value of an animal's hide is determined by the method of killing. Muskets, flintlock pistols, and multiple attacks will make pelts less valuable while a single stab or shot with a bow will increase the value.
Another major addition is the Davenport Homestead missions. Starting with a single house and a few outbuildings, the player can perform missions for NPCs in order to convince them to settle near the Homestead, providing the player with raw materials and crafting facilities. Recipes for crafting can be obtained. Raw goods and crafts can then be used as part of a local economy, selling them at market by either land caravan or via sea convoys. Dependent on the goods being traded and the level of threat nearby, these goods can be attacked and stolen, or sold for a profit.
Assassin's Creed III also features naval expeditions. The Eastern seaboard is a playable area, and will have a range of missions, side quests, and a treasure hunt. Aside from these, free-roaming on the high seas is not available. Connor will captain a warship, the Aquila with which the player can engage in naval campaigns. Control of the ship rely heavily on environmental factors, such as wind direction and speed, and local presence of storms, high waves or rocks. The sails can be reefed or opened fully, providing more speed but reducing manoeuvrability. Engagements are by cannon, with broadsides covering both flanks of the ship, and swivel guns that can be used to damage smaller ships. Other vessels may also be rammed, damaging both ships. The Aquila can be upgraded with more canons, other armaments including chain-shots, grape-shots, heated-shots, hull reinforcement and a naval ram. With each naval mission complete, the risk of naval convoy capture is reduced.
Desmond, his father William, Rebecca, and Shaun find the Temple in a cave in New York. Desmond activates a large portion of the equipment, as well as an apparent timer to the event expected on December 21, 2012. He then falls into a fugue, at which point he is returned to the Animus and bleeds back to the year 1754 to an ancestral Assassin in Britain, a noble named Haytham Kenway.
Haytham assassinates a patron at the London Opera, stealing a medallion that is speculated to be a key to a storehouse of "Those who came before". Haytham is dispatched to the American Colonies to find it. After arriving in Boston, he is tasked with finding five men faithful to his cause, Charles Lee, William Johnson, Thomas Hickey, Benjamin Church and Jonathan Pitcairn. Upon finding these men, he kills a slave trader named Silas, freeing a large group of Mohawk slaves in the process. One of the Mohawk, a woman named Kaniehti:io (Ziio for short), agrees to help Haytham if he kills General Braddock. After tracking his movements, Haytham slays Braddock as he retreats from battle. Haytham and Ziio then travel to the Temple, but Haytham is disappointed to find the medallion he possesses cannot open the entrance. Haytham and Ziio submit to their developing affections for each other. Some time after, Haytham returns to Boston, where the apprentice Charles Lee is recruited as Haytham's right hand man. It transpires, however, that Haytham and his associates are in fact Templars.
In the modern day, this event surprises Desmond to the point that he ejects himself from the Animus, as his mind attempts to absorb the facts. On his attention returning to the Temple, Desmond engages in a brief fight with his father, as he feels like he is treated as a pawn, and results in William punching Desmond in a short bout of anger. Once the tensions between the Assassin team cool down though, Shaun gives Desmond a choice: to explore the Grand Temple or return to the Animus.
The Animus shifts to the year 1760, Ratonhnhaké:ton's childhood with his Mohawk tribe. Ratonhnhaké:ton is attacked by armed Colonists including Charles Lee who informs Ratonhnhaké:ton that he wishes to speak to the Elders of his village. Ratonhnhaké:ton refuses and is knocked unconscious. When he returns to the village, he finds it burning and his mother, Ziio, trapped under the collapsing house. Years later, a teenage Ratonhnhaké:ton is told by the village Elder that the reason he cannot leave the valley is because their land is sacred, and shows him a sphere, which allows him to communicate with Juno. Juno informs Ratonhnhaké:ton that his tribe are guardians of a Temple, and her calculations indicate that unless he leaves, his village will be destroyed and his people slaughtered. He then journeys across the frontier to reach the elderly Achilles Davenport, a retired Master Assassin. He reluctantly recruits Ratonhnhaké:ton into the decaying order after proving himself protecting Achilles' home from invading bandits.
Years of training pass. Ratonhnhaké:ton sets out to eliminate the Templars, including the Grand Master Haytham - his father. Ratonhnhaké:ton initially travels to Boston, where Achilles suggests he change his name in order to move more freely and discreetly throughout the Colonies. He suggests the name "Connor", and this would become his permanent alias. Connor is later framed by the Templars for shooting demonstrators. While fleeing, he is rescued by Samuel Adams who becomes a close ally. During this time, Connor witnesses increasing dissent among the Colonialists after the implementation of the Tea Act and participates in the Boston Tea Party after discovering William Johnson is selling smuggled British tea to fund purchase of Connor's tribal land. Johnson is assassinated while attempting to forcefully acquire the land. Tension escalates quickly and Connor is swept into action defending Concord, culminating in the start of the American Revolutionary War. Connor next tracks down John Pitcairn, who leads the British forces at The Battle of Bunker Hill. After surviving fierce artillery fire, Connor makes his way to Pitcairn's camp and disposes of him. With Pitcairn slain, Connor sets his sights on Thomas Hickey who has been dispatched by Charles Lee to murder George Washington. Washington's death would open the way for Lee to replace him as Commander-in-chief, hence aligning Templar interests from both sides of the war. Connor locates Hickey in New York where he is running a counterfeiting racket, but after an altercation both are captured and imprisoned. Hickey is freed by Haytham and Lee. The Templars decide to frame Connor for the plot to kill Washington, sentence him to hang without trial and use this opportunity to simultaneously assassinate George Washington - thereby killing two birds with one stone. However, Achilles arrives to free Connor at the execution. In the ensuing chaos, Hickey attempts to assassinate Washington but Connor eliminates Hickey before the Templar could carry out his goal.
With Haytham and Lee still at large, Connor fears they still plot to eliminate Washington. Connor ignores Achille's advice not to interfere and meets with Washington at Valley Forge, subsequently learning that Benjamin Church has stolen supplies vital to the Patriot armies and fled. In pursuit of Church, Connor is ambushed and almost killed by his father. Haytham then reveals he has marked Church for execution, due to violation of the Templar code. The two forge a temporary truce and alliance in order to eliminate Church. While the two are working together, Haytham is shocked to hear of Ziio's death from Connor and angrily denies ordering his men of burning down Connor's village when Connor accuses him of it. Haytham is appalled to learn Connor captains a warship, but agrees to travel by sea to the Caribbean and after a fierce naval battle, they board the vessel Church is hiding on and summarily executes him. Father and son then travel to meet Washington and return the stolen supplies. At Valley Forge, Haytham uncovers a letter revealing that Washington has ordered the removal of all Indigenous population from the frontier as a number of tribes have supported the Loyalists. One of the lands to be purged contains Connor's village, despite the tribe being completely neutral. Connor quickly realises Haytham knew of this plan previously and is using it now to antagonise Connor against Washington. Feeling betrayed by Haytham and Washington, he severs ties with both and rushes to protect his people. Connor finds the village safe, but several warriors have been recruited by Charles Lee to turn back the Patriots sent to eradicate the village. Connor neutralises the Native warriors to avoid conflict, however his childhood friend Kanen'tó:kon turns on him. Left with no other choice, Connor kills Kanen'tó:kon.
Connor becomes increasingly conflicted about his mission to eliminate all Templars. Having worked successfully with Haytham, Connor decides to try convincing his father to join him in a common vision of peace and freedom for all after Charles Lee is eliminated. Haytham remains unmoved and continues to protect Lee. Connor discovers Lee has been disgraced by Washington for attempting to sabotage the outcome of a battle and has taken refuge in heavily fortified Fort George. Connor is injured while infiltrating the fort only to find Haytham waiting for him. Haytham reveals he has sent Lee away with the medallion. Finally realising that their clash of ideals will never be resolved, Connor kills Haytham who, in his dying breath, acknowledges Connor as a son he was proud of.
Meanwhile, Desmond is occasionally roused from the Animus in order to retrieve power cells crucial in the process of exploring the temple and discovering the solution to save the world. These missions take Desmond to locations including Manhattan and Brazil. He encounters Daniel Cross, a Templar infiltrating the Assassin Brotherhood who was responsible for nearly wiping out the Assassins in 2000 by killing their Mentor. While exploring the temple, Juno reveals to Desmond the events leading up to the first cataclysm. It is during one of these encounters with Juno that Desmond reveals Lucy Stillman's death was no accident and that he chose to kill her after the Apple showed him that Lucy was a Templar double-agent and intended to betray him. When the final power cell is located, William offers to retrieve it instead of Desmond who continues to search for the key (the medallion) from Connor's memories. However, William is captured by Abstergo and held in an Abstergo facility in Rome, the same facility Desmond was kept at previously. Dr. Warren Vidic demands Desmond bring the Apple to him in exchange for William. Desmond infiltrates the laboratories, and again encounters Daniel who mocks and corners him. However, the Templar begins to suffer a mental breakdown from the Bleeding effect and flees. Giving chase, Desmond kills him and then uses the Apple to control bodyguards to kill Vidic and themselves, successfully rescuing his father.
Within the Animus, Connor continues to hunt Lee, more determined than ever to end the Templar threat as he shaves the sides of his head and marks his face with war paint. At Haytham's funeral, Connor is captured by Lee who, overcome with grief at the loss of his mentor and close friend, vows revenge against Connor with the destruction of all that he holds dear. Connor escapes and discovers Lee is attempting to leave the country. In the final showdown, Connor pursues Lee into a burning ship but the two fall through a weakened section of the deck. Connor is impaled in his side by a piece of wood and is unable to move. Lee approaches, exasperated at why Connor continues to persist in vain against Templar victories. Connor replies with "Because no one else will" and shoots Lee who, mortally wounded, escapes with a badly injured Connor still in pursuit. Connor finds Lee in a pub where the two share a drink in silence before Connor delivers the killing blow. It is around this time that Achilles passes away, entrusting his property and their peaceful, flourishing homestead to Connor. With his goal accomplished and a fledgling nation born, Connor takes the medallion key and returns to his Mohawk village only to find the inhabitants have been moved by the new government under President Washington. He is relieved to find the Sphere has been left behind for him. From it, Juno instructs him to conceal the medallion where no one might find it but refuses to explain why. Connor obliges, burying the medallion in the grave of Connor Davenport, Achilles's deceased young son and his own namesake.
Armed with the knowledge of the medallion's location, Desmond retrieves it and uses it to access the promised salvation within the Temple. Here, he and the others find Juno's hologram who instructs Desmond to activate a pedestal which will save the world from the Sun. Minerva suddenly appears and reveals that by doing so he will also die and inadvertently free Juno from captivity, allowing her to begin her conquest of the world. Juno was sealed long ago during the war between the First Civilization and humanity when she plotted to use the machines designed to save the world to control it. Juno pleads her case with Desmond that if the world is destroyed, then he and other survivors will begin a new civilization in a post-apocalyptic world. Desmond is destined to be worshipped as a God whose well-intended legacy will be manipulated by future generations to repeat the cycle of human tragedy. Believing the world would stand a better chance fighting against Juno, Desmond instructs the others to leave to prepare for the oncoming struggle. Desmond then activates the pedestal, dies and collapses to the floor. The world experiences minor electromagnetic disturbances and is saved. Released, Juno commends Desmond's choice and declares that now it is time for her to play her part.
In the epilogue, Connor takes down the portraits of the Templar members in the secret basement and burns them, then takes out of a post the buried tomahawk that represented the threat against his village, signifying the end of his personal war. He travels to the pier in New York, seeing the last of the British forces leave the city to the cheers of the people. While leaving, Connor notices a slave trader auctioning off his 'wares': a sobering reminder that the peace and freedom for all he has struggled and sacrificed so much to achieve was not yet realised.
