An assassin named Connor Kenwayis in the middle of the American Revolutionary War, though that’s not the war he’s fighting. Connor is fighting his own battle, which will intersect with the events of the Revolutionary War, and will findTemplars and Assassins in both the Colonial and British camps. Instead of Connor focusing solely on fighting against the British, some British characters will be good while some colonists will be portrayed as oppressors. The game explores the moral grey area that exists between the Assassins and the Templars, rather than simply casting them as polar opposites of good and evil.
Meanwhile, Desmond and the remnants of the Assassin Order finally bring the fight to Abstergo to stop the launch of a satellite that will initiate doomsday. They have until December 21, 2012 to stop the end of the world and the game starts on October, 31, 2012 giving them less than two months to find all the information they need.
