Yesterday, leaks of supposed Assassin’s Creed 3 artwork started popping up online, with imagery pointing to a sequel set during the American War of Independence of the 1770s. Game Informer later confirmed it. Then last night, Ubisoft published all three pack shots for the game on the Assassin’s Creed Facebook page – you can see them in the gallery after the jump.

The setting for the next Assassin’s Creed game has long been a subject of debate. Signs pointed to China; the last game’s writer told Electricpig he’d like to see the series head to revolutionary Ireland; we’d been secretly hoping for the French revolution and the chance to take on Robespierre himself. Now we know what to expect, it’s time to tell us: is this where you want the series to go?

As you can see from the image and video, whoever the new Assassin is – again, likely an ancestor of Desmond Miles, the story’s protagonist in the present day – it appears they’re native American, with an aptitude for sticking Tomahawks in the faces of unfortunate Brits.

But is this the setting you’d like to see? Smoke filled battle fields, canyons and maybe even early New York could make for fantastic stealth gameplay, but we can think of of plenty of other compelling historical settings. Let us know which would have been your preferred choice in the poll below, and get stuck in the comments.

    After playing Assassins Creed, Assassins Creed 2 and Assassins Creed Brotherhood I have begun to lose my patience with Ubisoft. 

    I am shocked that a game with now 4 sequels/prequels has actually kept fans captivated for so long. Not that other games haven’t done this, but at least they have re-invented the series whilst doing it. Playing Assassins Creed 2 was a little different than playing AC1. However, AC: Brotherhood was hardly any different than AC2. Revelations? I just can’t believe that it got the scores it got, it baffled me. Its exactly the same game as Brotherhood with a continuation of this very questionable storyline.

    I used to love climbing beautifully recreated mausoleums and cathedrals, shimmying around crevices and plunging myself into long forgotten temples within the walls of an ancient city. Now, Its all a bit too similar and Ubisoft don’t seem to want to change it. I guess “if it ain’t broke” and all that because originally it was one of the most interesting games in its Genre. I won’t be buying AC3, as I just cannot convince myself the time required to complete it will be worth what I get out of an already repeated game. 

    Controversial?

      Not at all. I do take a different view from you though: I also thought AC2 was fantastic, but I genuinely believe Brotherhood is a masterpiece of gameplay, setting and storytelling.  

      Revelations though, showed that the mechanics were becoming repetitive, especially without enough story to move things on.

      However, I think Assassin’s Creed 3 gives Ubisoft a great deal of potential to change this. They’ve had a team on it for three years – this is no cash in. And an entirely new setting gives new scope for new gameplay mechanics, especially since you’d have to figure that much more of this game is low-rise countryside, not high-rise early modern Christendom. I’m giving them the benefit of the doubt still, and I can’t wait to see.

    call yourself fans? brotherhood and revelations were just extra chapters in the ezio story arch that tied in with altiar in the end and finished it off well now it open to a whole new dimension of gaming its gunna be a bit of the old mixed up with more than likely alot of the new i own every 1 of them and if it didnt feel repetitive then by the time u get to the end would it feel like assassin’s creed? gonna be a first day buy for me regardless of where its set of if its the same!
