The Assassin’s Creed franchise has largely been successful off the back of Ezio Auditore’s charm. But the third chapter isn’t about Ezio – it’s about Connor, and this new trailer introduces us to the American Civil war assassin.

Ubisoft have a long history of making amazing trailers for the Assassin’s Creed games, and this one is no exception. While the games are largely based around fluid fighting mechanics and large, explorable worlds, the truth is that it’s the characters that make the game so appealing.

So it’s a real relief that Connor looks to be such an intriguing character. Exploring his story is going to be an exciting experience when the game launches at the end of the month.
