If you are just like us, you’ve being dying to learn more about the recently revealed Assassin’s Creed III, and it’s mysterious new protagonist. Well, Ubisoft has been kind enough to finally release the first official details about the game, so sit back down and read on.

It was confirmed the game will indeed take place during the American Revolution, as was previously revealed thanks to the game’s box art. Assassin’s Creed 3 will span across the Revolutionary War, and will take us from the great and wild frontier to the colonial towns of early America. But don’t worry, we’ll also get to see our fair share to combat, when “George Washington’s Continental Army clashed with the imposing British Army.”

The player will step into the leathery boots of Ratohnaké:ton (pronounced Ra-doon-ha-gay-doo’), or Connor to his friends, who is a Native American of English descent and also a “new voice for justice in the ancient war between the Assassins and Templars.”

Assassin’s Creed 3 is being developed mainly by Ubisoft Montreal, with six other Ubisoft studios helping out. The game has  twice the production capacity of any previous Ubisoft game to date, and is using a brand new engine called Ubisoft-AnvilNext, which promises breakthroughs in visual quality, character models and artificial intelligence.

“Assassin’s Creed III features the franchise’s most expansive setting so far, along with an exciting new hero and exponentially more gameplay,” said Yves Guillemot, chief executive officer at Ubisoft. “Whether you’re a longtime fan of Assassin’s Creed or if you’re new to the franchise, you’re going to be blown away by the scale and marvel of Assassin’s Creed III.”

You’ll be able to get your eager hands on the game October 31, when it releases worldwide on the Xbox 360, PS3 and PC. A Wii U version is also in development, but we are not sure it will be released on the same date. Catch the reveal trailer for Assassin’s Creed 3 below.
