Assassin’s Creed 3: TV Ad Spot Touches a Patriotic Nerve
Assassin’s Creed 3 has a new TV ad spot out and it is sure to make many patriotic American teary eyed. While the ad does highlight the patriotic song “America The Beautiful,” make no mistake about Assassin’s Creed 3-there will be killings of British colonials and American colonists alike.
That’s just how assassins roll in the hard-hitting game of historical assassination action adventure that is Assassin’s Creed 3. Still, it does give one goosebumps and quite a bit of national pride to hear the ad’s epic choir proudly sing a unifying song that extols the virtue America represents. Assassin’s Creed 3 is set during the American Revolutionary War, a historical period that is the crossroads of heavy political and military developments. The American War erupted after the British colonial government started reining in their American colonies in order to pay for the destructive French and Indian wars. Since many colonists got used to the freedom afforded by previous lax British colonial administrations, a conflagration erupted between the rebellious colonists and cash-strapped British who had to resort to increasingly heavy handed measures to contain the colonists. Assassin’s Creed drops on October 20, 2012.
