    After much speculation it has been confirmed that Assassin's Creed 3 will take place during the American revolution. Images with hints of this have been floating around the internet for a few days now but Ubisoft has released the official box-art for Assassin's Creed 3, which confirms that the game will indeed take place during the American Revolution. Prior to this several images were seen on Kotaku, Game Informer, and Shacknews leading to this speculation. No word yet on a release date or if the game will use the intrusive DRM that previous titles did.

    I understand that you are comparing his white robes with those of the soldiers in the background but I am guessing that the game's 'theme' and actual game-play will feature "snowy environments / winter seasons" where his white robes would make sense, and in fact even more sense than AC:2 or AC:Brotherhood where the environments were more colorful Italian cities.
    This link shows some 'possible' screenshots of AC:3 which shows snowy environments: http://www.forbes.com/sites/johngau...iii-introduces-a-native-american-protagonist/.
    Don't get me wrong, I am not trying to defend the costumes used in AC:3, but lets wait for the trailer and not make any premature comments on this title.

    However, I do feel white robes made most sense in AC1 with priests & drab environments.

    I like the look of this game. Its a good reminder of what we did and what we became and with any luck we will do again.
