I’m Starting to Have My Doubts that Assassin’s Creed 3 Is Going to Play Fair

Although Ubisoft has sworn since Assassin’s Creed 3 was first announced that new assassin Connor would be fighting Templars on both sides of the Revolutionary War — that’s right, red and blue — almost all the trailers and gameplay previews so far have shown Connor killing nothing but redcoats. And now, here’s a new preview released specifically for the Fourth of July, which is pretty much pro-Colonists simply by its existence. I’m starting to wonder if the only American you have to assassinate is Benedict Arnold, which I think we can all agree does not exactly balance the scales. Oh well. 

At least I’m pleased to see the makers of AssCreed 3 celebrate the Fourth of July like I do, namely, getting a young child drunk and making them sing “Amazing Grace.”
