After two years and three games focused on Italian assassin Ezio Auditore da Firenze, Assassin's Creed turns to a new time period--the American Revolution--and a new protagonist named Connor Kenway. Half-British and half-Mohawk, Connor will have to stealthily slay his way through colonists and redcoats alike. Although the prospect of dodging rifle fire seems daunting, we're glad for the change of pace.
