Game Profile

The American Colonies, 1775. A brave young warrior fights to save his homeland.

But what begins as a struggle over territory turns into an extraordinary journey that will transform him into a Master Assassin—and will forever change the destiny of a nation.

You are Connor, warrior son of a Native American mother and British father. As the colonies draw closer to revolution, you will dedicate your life to the freedom of your clan –becoming the spark that ignites the revolution into full blaze. Your crusade will take you through blood-soaked battlefields to crowded city streets, to perilous wilderness and beyond. You will not only witness history—you will make it.

Set against the backdrop of one of the bloodiest Revolutions in world history, prepare to be drawn back into the centuries old battle between the Assassin’s Order and their sworn enemy, the Templars. Unleash lethal new skills and experience a stunningly realistic world created by Anvil Next, a new engine that redefines gaming.
Welcome to an entirely new chapter in the Assassin’s Creed saga.

This was certainly unexpected! Does anyone know if this is a new exclusive title for Wii U or just a port of one of the other games?

Hmm. I don't care if it is an exclusive or a port. However, I won't get my hopes up because of what happened to Assassin's Creed 3DS.

I wonder if they'll add anything to this version. I played through the entire campaign for the PS3 and it was an awesome game. Just can't get enough of this series!!!

This has been my favorite series to hit a platform in years. The story has gotten better and better with each game that's been released. The content is massive, the ship battles are incredible and fun to play, and the side missions alone are better than alot of AAA title games out there. At least in my opinion.
