Here’s the Stuff from the New Assassin’s Creed III Trailer That Ubisoft Doesn’t Want Americans to See

Ubisoft released a new trailer for Assassin's Creed III today. In the American version that you'll see below, it looks like Connor killed one American soldier. But in the UK version of the trailer above, it's clear that he's ending the lives of many American revolutionary rebels.


There's a 30-second difference in the runtime of the two clips, with a crucial five seconds of it showing Connor decimating a colonial squad. Despite saying that Connor will fight both Americans and British in the game, he's been shown primarily killing Redcoats in combat. The trailer's subtext seems to hint at how Connor is torn between his Native American roots and helping the colonials fight against the British. Perhaps the game won't quite be as "America F*** Yeah!" as previously thought.

(Thanks, tipsters cammy2 and oonsk_oonsk!)


As a nation as powerful as the US, which has never suffered any major wars and disasters, it is surprising that most Americans feel so insecure. The sentiment that "___(the Russians, the blacks, the Muslims, the foreigners, the Apocalypse, etc) will get us" has been driving half the Americans insane over the last half century.

Grow up, Americans.
