Today, Ubisoft has officially released the cover art for Assassin’s Creed III, which is slated for release later this year. Yesterday, a supposed official picture from Assassin’s Creed III was posted by the gaming site Kotaku.
The picture suggested a Revolutionary War setting with a Colonial American Flag in the background, while in the foreground a man wearing altered traditional Assassin garb held both a tomahawk and pistol.
While the photo released by Ubisoft is not the same photo, the same themes are in place. The Colonial Flag and two warring factions are in the background while an Assassin wielding a tomahawk has a British soldier pinned down in the foreground. All of this has happened ahead of this upcoming Monday, March 5th, which is supposed to see a major announcement by Ubisoft.
Assassin’s Creed III is set for release on the 360, PS3 and PC on October 30, 2012.
