Assassin's Creed III is a historical action-adventure open world stealth video game. It is the fifth installment in the Assassin's Creed series.
Set in Colonial America, the Assassin-Templar war has become involved in the American Revolution. As series' protagonist Desmond Miles, the player controls a young half-English, half-Native American man named Ratonhnhaké:ton (later named Connor Kenway), drawn into the fight against tyranny when his home is attacked by colonists. Over the course of the game, Kenway will encounter historical figures including George Washington, Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, Charles Lee, Israel Putnam, Paul Revere, General Lafayette, John Pitcairn, William Prescott, King George III, Samuel Adams and Friedrich Wilhelm von Steuben.
The story will span 30 years of Connor's life, from 1753 to 1783. Boston and New York will be cities that can be explored, as well as the American Colonial Frontier, spanning forest, cliffs, rivers, Connor's Mohawk village, and the settlements of Lexington, Concord and Charlestown. It will be open for the player to take part in hunting activities, and approximately one third of the story will take place in the Frontier. The entire Eastern seaboard will also be explorable via Connor captaining a ship.
