Assassin's Creed III Crashes The Boston Tea Party

A new trailer for Ubisoft's blockbuster franchise teases "another revolution – the one that mattered" amid the backdrop of the colonial uprising.

Part history lesson, part gameplay teaser, the latest Assassin's Creed III trailer does nothing to diminish our excitement for the game. Enjoy:

If you want to join the revolution, you won't have to wait long. Assassin's Creed III releases for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on October 30. The Wii U version comes out alongside the console launch on November 18, and the PC version hits November 20.

  • October 30th cant come fast enough.
  • Definitely a day one but, just hope it loves up to the hype.
  • You win October...looking forward to you more than November.
  • Man oh Man. If AC3 doesn't win GOTY i'll be very suprised. I am so excited, I'm already so damn ready for RE6 next week. But this is the game that's going to have my 100% focus all the way until I Platinum it. Just WOW
  • Can't wait for the launch of the Wii U!! This game will be amazing!!!!
  • I....I think I just shat myself. I cannot wait. Goin to the midnight release of this for sure.

  • First reaction to this game was "meh, another Assassin's Creed" but now I'm REALLY pumped up. It looks amazing. Now I gotta see if I can catch Brotherhood/Revelations on a Steam sale to catch up where I left off.
  • I love tea.
  • This looks so awesome! I never played past the first game but after seeing this, it makes me want to buy them all so I can catch up...

  • As a History and Government Double Major, this video was offensive lol. It's not even funny how utterly shallow and inaccurate it was in regards to the Boston Tea Party and the beginnings of the War for Independence.

    If you are going to make a video game depicting the founding of the most powerful country in the world, you could at least be precise and accurate about events... Certainly if you have an interest in ACIII, don't think it will help you ace your test on Colonial American history. I can't even begin to imagine how much Ubisoft has butchered history in the game.

    Just in regards to the game though, I'm personally "meh" about how it's shaping up. The only slightly compelling part of the game is the fact that it is taking place during the beginnings of the American Revolution. Other than that, I don't really see how it's an improvement over the previous AC games. I suppose if I just wanted to enjoy the story, I might rent it.
  • Little known fact: One of the main reasons the Boston Tea Party happened was due to unfair tariffs. The British government had added additional tariffs to all tea that wasn't sold by the British East India Company, the granddaddy of all evil corporations (only in this case these guys were REALLY evil). The tea they dumped into Boston Harbor was all tea owned by the BEIC.
  • A tea-bagging achievement/trophy seems in order.

  • Time to play this game once it releases and learn history all over again.

  • Let's get our Boston Tea Party on!

  • Let's get our Boston Tea Party on!

  • please people the real stealth action gem of october is... dishonored
    assassins will still be a titan though
  • Why isn't my history class as interesting as this video?

  • Yes.

  • This is kind of nitpicking, but didn't the colonists dress in Indian make-up?
  • Now this is why I think the Assassin's Creed movie will be amazing.
