It seems the rumors of Assassin's Creed III taking place during the American Revolution may be accurate, since some new promotional art has been spotted with the protagonist - and he seems to be Native American.
The assassin is wearing an 18th century longcoat, under which what seems to be Native American jewelry. There's a bow and arrow strapped to his back, while he wields a Tomahawk in one hand, and an 18th century musket in the other. In the background is the classic Betsy Ross American flag.
The other promotional item seems to indicate UbiSoft will be officially unveiling the new game next week on the 5th March.
