The latest game in the Assassin’s Creed series, Assassin’s Creed III, is one of the most anticipated games that will come out this year. The developer of the game has started a video series that documents what exactly went into the making of the game. The first video in the series, called Inside Assassin's Creed III - Episode One, shows all the research that the team went through so that the game gives the authentic feel of being there during the American war for independence.
Ubisoft had recently released a trailer that showed off some of the multiplayer in the upcoming game. The multiplayer in the Assassin’s Creed games has always been much different from the classic multiplayer that gamers are used to. Instead of the run-and-gun gameplay of something like Call of Duty or the team and social gameplay of something like World of Warcraft, Assassin’s Creed’s multiplayer has more to do with stealth. The multiplayer, much like the games themselves, has players blending into crowds to try and remain unseen while trying to scope out their targets and quickly moving in for the kill without alerting other players. The new game in the series looks to add new features to the multiplayer.
The Assassin’s Creed series deals with a secret war that has lasted millennia between the Assassins and the Templars. The Assassins seek to fight for the free will of people, while the Templars seek to control them. The first game was set during the Holy Crusades in Jerusalem. Protagonist Altaïr ibn-La'Ahad would have to jump from rooftops and sneak into groups of people in order to find and assassinate his targets.

The second game was set during the Renaissance era in Florence. The main protagonist of the “II” series of games (which are Assassin’s Creed II, Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood, and Assassin’s Creed: Revelations) is Ezio Auditore. The II series of games dealt with the evolution of Ezio as a character, who starts out as a revenge-driven teenager only to become a highly-skilled master of Assassins. Altaïr also makes an appearance in Revelation, showing the aged assassin’s last few days. The secondary protagonist of the series is Desmond Miles, who is accessing his “genetic memory” to live the lives of his Ancestors Altaïr and Ezio.
Assassin's Creed III will be released for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on October 30, and the PC version will be released on November 20.
