Here’s the official synopsis for the game, due to be released on October 30th, 2012:
The year is 1775. The American colonies are about to revolt. You are Connor, an assassin who has sworn to secure liberty for his people and his nation. To do so, you will hunt your enemies across a staggeringly large, open, and realistic world. You will unleash your lethal skills in a violent quest that will take you from chaotic city streets to blood-soaked battlefields in the hostile American wilderness and beyond. You will meet legendary heroes of American history, and together you will conspire to annihilate those who threaten Liberty itself.
Also keep your eyes peeled for the PS Vita Exclusive Assassin’s Creed III: Liberation, featuring Aveline, a female assassin of color, killing her way through the Louisiana Bayou.
Have a great July 4th, readers!
