History and the video game Assassin’s Creed 3 what do they have to do with each other?
In case you did not know Assassin’s Creed 3 is a video game. It’s a game about the American Revolutionary War and the fight for freedom. Much like the Civil War the American Revolution was much about fighting for freedom. In the Civil War we fought for the freedom of slaves. In the Revolutionary War we fought for freedom from the British.
Assassin’s Creed 3 is the story of one man reliving the lives of his ancestors. As of this writing, Assassin’s Creed 3 is the only video game you can play through history. Very cool, might actually learn somethings, ha! The game is set between the years 1753 and 1783 and focuses on Connor Kenway, who fought during the American Revolution. Connor, the ancestor and the main character in Assassin’s Creed 3 explore places going back in time to the American Revolution.
By playing the game you can tell right away a tremendous effort went into the making of the Assassin’s Creed. And as always with all three Assassin’s Creed games the art work is impressive. If you are not able to play the game but want to see the art work look at the book by Andy McVittie (a limited edition art book with signed prints for Assassin’s Creed 3) shows the finely honed and evocative historical images blended into the video game.
