The 5th console game, Assassin’s Creed III (Ubisoft and Rockstar have the same counting teacher) delivers us a new protagonist – half English, half Native American, Connor Kenway.
Desmond re-enters the Animus to relive the memories of his Colonial Age ancestor in an attempt to find the mysterious Key required to open the door barring the way at the hidden location, revealed at the end of Assassin’s Creed Revelations.
The game begins with a startling revelation of its own – the first playable ancestor is not Connor Kenway but his father, the extremely British Haytham Kenway. The opening sequences detail how his superiors in London sent him to Boston in order to find a mysterious First Civilization storehouse to aid them in the Templar/Assassin war and to uncover the mystery of The Ones Who Came Before.
