Assassin's Creed 3's Mohawk origin

Assassin’s Creed III’s Native American Hero Had A Very Hard Life

By Evan NarcisseThis teaser for Assassin’s Creed III is different from the blitz of video we’ve been getting as the threequel nears release. In the clip, you see a bit of Connor’s life from before he became an Assassin. The scenes of him running through the forest look beautiful but get harshly contrasted when he comes home and find his village and loved ones burning to the ground.

Those moments really drive home how Connor is a different type of lead character for the next Assassin’s Creed. He doesn’t come from a life of ease like Ezio and wasn’t born into the Assassin’s order like Altair. And the fact that his catalyst for becoming an Assassin is tied into the tragic history of Native American in the United States will likely make his story more poignant.

See? It's not as bad as you thought.

4 will no doubt be the French Revolution.
