The Assassin's Creed 3 live-action trailer and commercial ups the rhetoric between those who want to be free in their own country and the dominate, established power that has ruled for decades. And yes, we're talking about the American Revolution, Colonists vs. the English, not any budding conflict going on in the Middle East. Although, many parallels can be drawn.
This minute-long Assassin's Creed trailer on YouTube is filled with actors who portray 18th century characters at a moment when they realize they need to rise against their tyrannical rulers.
The ten seconds of this Assassin's Creed 3 commercial does show a little bit of gameplay, the playable lead, Connor Kenway, is seen throwing a number of enemies down at the climex. You don't actually see him make contact with the English Redcoats - they're already in the midst of falling down, as if the actors were ?rising? and making the first attack in their speech.
Just a note about this particular Assassin's Creed 3 trailer: It ends with the European release date of October 31. Because the American Revolutionary War wouldn't have happened without your US ancestors, everyone in America is treated to the game one day early. The North American release date for Assassin's Creed 3 is October 30. Who says sacrifice in the 1700s doesn't still pay off.
