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."

    In any discussion of Ubisoft, the probability of discussion of DRM approaches 1.

    This means that the person who bring it up has lost.

    Beadwork armbands, moccasins, ponybead necklace, fringed quiver, ornamented bow and belt, and tomahawk.

    Uh, not necessarily. Many frontier settlers of that time period had regular interaction and trade with native populations, and in many cases adopted the lifestyles of the natives. They would even go as far as to take a native wife or become a "member" of the tribe. Also, you have to remember that the native clothing and lifestyle were perfectly adapted for living in a wild forest, much more so than traditional European clothing and culture. The frontier settlers wore buckskin, they wore moccasins. They would be familiar with Native weaponry, and would likely possess native jewelry as well through trade. You also have to remember what happened right before the Revolution: the French-Indian War. Most of the battles that took place in the colonies took place on the frontier. There were many frontier militia groups formed to fight alongside the British, and in many cases they fought alongside friendly Indian tribes. So, yeah, just because he has a bow, or is wearing native clothing or tribal jewelry does not necessarily mean he is an Indian. I would put money down that he's simply a frontier settler.

I've got a bad feeling about this.
