Lead writer Matt Turner says Assassin's Creed 3 will feature more Desmond than ever before, and more present-day events than in any past installment. "All I can say about Desmond's story is you're going to experience more Desmond than you've ever had before," he said. "We're spending more time on the present than we have in past games."
Though Ubisoft has only given us a glimpse at new historical protagonist Connor Kenway so far, Desmond will play "a big part of our story," Turner assures CVG.
We were able to spend some time with Assassin's Creed 3 at a recent event, learning about the numerous development teams, its colonial American setting and why you won't explore one of old America's most significant cities, Philadelphia.
