Assassin’s Creed 3 trailer alludes to tragic childhood sequence


Assassin’s Creed 3 isn’t out on PC for a month, but became something that European console types can have and hold today. That means they’re entitled to their own launch trailer, which you’ll see below the break.

Amid the bombs and bayonets, smoke and s’mores (what else are all those fires for?), you’ll learn that “this land can offer something else than pain” – an assertion set against the backdrop of some serious-looking pain. We see a childhood Connor in despair as he watches his own village go up in flames; the sort of experience that might prep a boy for becoming the sort of man who buries tomahawks in people.
