America’s beginnings through the lens of Assassin’s Creed is the most intriguing setting change for the franchise since the shift to the Renaissance in the 15th century.
Based on the covers that we see, it looks like it will work aesthetically. The trademark hood and jacket on a Native American retains the iconic silhouette the franchise is known for. The potential weaponry including the tomahawk axe shaped like the Assassin’s logo, a pistol and a bow are all thematically relevant.
I’m fascinated and intrigued by the setting, but with Assassin’s Creed: Revelations still sitting on my shelf? I don’t feel the need to get too excited over it. Keeping with tradition, I will be waiting for a $19.99 price tag two months after release anyway.
