Rating summary: This is an action-adventure game in which players assume the role of Desmond, an assassin who must revisit the lives of his ancestors during the American Revolutionary War. Most missions require players to find, stalk, and kill enemies with a variety of weapons (e.g., muskets, handguns, bayonets, tomahawks). Players can also engage in swordfights with armed soldiers, resulting in depictions of impaled characters and occasional slow-motion effects; large blood splashes appear when enemies are injured. Cinematic cutscenes depict additional blood splatter on characters' bodies and/or clothing, along with more intense acts of violence: an unarmed prisoner getting his throat slit; a man getting shot in the head at close range; a man getting bludgeoned in the head with a cleaver. The dialogue contains a variety of sexual material/innuendo: “King Louis filled the place with whores to keep his men from turning tail,” “[H]ere you are banging my sister behind my back,” “Don't flog the bishop again, lads,” “[T]hey spend 20 minutes simulating . . . sex and walk off with millions.” The game also contains the words “f**k” and “sh*t.” (spoken in both English and French).
Assassin’s Creed 3 is being developed and published by Ubisoft. The latest game in the Assassin’s Creed series will be released first on the Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 in North America on October 30. The Nintendo Wii U version is slated to come out on November 18 while the PC port is due on November 20. You can pre-order the product in the following link: Assassin’s Creed 3
