    Assassins Creed 3 not about America Ra Ra/ wont shy away from slavery *READ*

    Mr Shade posted this on his twitter and the article is a very good read. Hopefully this will put the debate of killing only the English at rest. Here are two paragraphs from the article which you can read following the link below:


    "
    The time frame of the game helps minimise the controversy too because this isn’t the US of A as we know it now. ”The truth of the matter is that America didn’t exist until 1783 and that’s when our game ends,” states Turner. He points out that before this point the US was just an extension of England and the Revolution was considered a “civil war on foreign soil”.


    “At that point it’s not about American or English; it’s about English and English and that’s something we want to be very clear on. It’s not about America Ra Ra it’s about freedom and community and about how people are treated in that kind of a situation. And how they want to find their own identity. I think that’s something that’s universal to anybody”.

    Yeah, British vs. British. I know that's what the game is going to be all about, but the marketing is rather misleading.

    It won't be British vs. British for the last 7 years of the game.

    Not really, considering the era it's set in..

    Just over in the UK people don't really understand American history.. Which maybe handy to at least have a quick read up, considering the game is set there..

    That's a bit of a generalisation don't you think?

    ...Nope.

    British troops remained until 1783 when the Treaty of Paris was signed. Multiple campaigns (New York and New Jersey, Saratoga, Philidelphia, Siege of Yorktown) took place during, or after 1776. The only difference was that the Americans had gained independence and they were no longer part of the British Empire, hence why it won't be British vs. British.
