Leaked Assassin's Creed 3 Screenshots Show American Revolution 100

An anonymous reader writes "After three years, Ubisoft is finally finishing the newest installment of their Templars vs. Assassins series, set during the American Revolution. PC Magazine reports that 'If the cover art is any indicator, the new Assassin is pals with George Washington, Paul Revere, Ben Franklin, and the other leading American revolutionaries of the day.' A team of developers at Ubisoft reportedly dedicated a full three-year development cycle to re-examining every element in the franchise to improve the game — although it could've taken even longer."

    So instead of wandering around for 2 hours in ancient Rome, I'll end up wandering around for 2 hours in ancient Chaleston? That sounds way better...

    I know there's a lot to do in the game, but somehow I always think it's a good idea to buy the game and then end up wandering aimlessly around some ancient city.

    If this is AC 3, then what were Brotherhood and Revelations? I guess 2.1 and 2.2?

    Don't worry, they'll be sure to have even stronger DRM this time! I hear that the new kind makes you set up an appointment with an Ubisoft representative who will not only helpfully install the game for you using a secret code, but they will watch over your shoulder as you play to make sure that you don't copy their stuff! In fact, you would probably do that when you're NOT playing (Even though with AC2, they must think that if you lose connection for a few seconds, you're obviously pirating.) so they'll install monitoring software and set up cameras to watch your activity. Expect the cost of the games to double, but it'll be worth it to stop those dirty pirates, right?

    It'll be nothing like the shit DRM the last game had, but if they keep doing things like this, it's going to BE their last game.
