Kotaku has confirmed that the upcoming Assassin’s Creed game will be set during the American Revolution.
Looks like that rumored image we ran last night of the protagonist from Assassin’s Creed III checks out—Ubisoft has posted the official box art from the game to Facebook that depicts the same tomahawk-wielding gentleman. In addition, Game Informer has shared the art from their cover story on the game, further confirming the setting.
We’ll have more details as we get them. In the meantime, you can find the full box artwork over at Kotaku.
