The multiplayer game is "is set against the backdrop of the American Revolutionary War in the late 18th century." Additionally, the much-awaited sequel sees the introduction of a new protagonist Connor, who is "a Native American voice for justice in the ancient war between the Assassins and Templars."
"We can't wait for gamers to enter the world of 'Assassin's Creed III.' Running the game from a Samsung 840 Pro SSD will deliver an even more immersive experience, since boot times and level loads practically become a thing of the past," said Geoffroy Sardin, chief EMEA sales and marketing officer at Ubisoft.
