Next week, TVs and monitors around the world will be occupied with images of brutal and spectacular killings disguised with a charmingly and patriotic historical motif. The series has managed to offer up annual releases over the last three years, and has only missed one year, 2008, since the original game debuted in 2007. May has been one of the staples of the Assassin’s Creed franchise, and has been a writer on every major Assassin’s Creed game (with the exception of last year’s Revelations, which he was still involved with, just to a lesser degree). The setting of the Assassin’s Creed III is the familiar era of Revolutionary America, of course. To that canvas, May introduced the story we will soon be playing, featuring the half- English, half-Mohawk protagonist Ratonhnhake:ton, or Connor Kenway as he will be more commonly known. To breathe an air of authenticity into that world, May and the Ubisoft team spent a great deal of time researching the setting and what life in those days was like.
Joining May was a team of people that would go beyond what he could do on his own with the time he had, and several experts, including historical professors and archivists, were consulted to ensure accuracy. Of course, whenever you base a fictional story in a historical setting, there is the unavoidable battle between indulging in romanticizing the period and keeping the historical aspects as realistic as possible.
One of those groups still suffering are Native Americans, something that is depicted in the game. The new setting will no doubt strike a chord with Americans, especially in this time of heightened nationalism as elections loom, but it is one of many potential locations that could have been selected. While May has spent nearly a decade immersed in the world of gaming, he originally began in film as a producer.
The property has spread out from the games, and will soon be translated into a movie as well.
Although May was unable to give specifics of the development of the film, he sees the movie as just another medium to convey what is already a strong story with themes that run deep. Having come from movies, May has an interesting perspective on the nature of the relationship between films and games. That mentality is still very prevalent, even dominant when it comes to film adaptations of games. Joining Assassin’s Creed III next week on shelves is Assassin’s Creed III: Liberation, a PlayStation Vita exclusive that May also consulted on. While the spotlight is firmly on the two upcoming games at the moment, Ubisoft is certainly already hard at work on the next Assassin’s Creed game. The dark forces of secret societies have permeated our history since the beginning of time. The video below goes through the dark and shrouded history of these demonic forces and exposes their true history and agendas.Were the Illuminati behind the former Soviet Union and their secret service KGB?

On October 30, the third Assassin’s Creed will be released and fans of the series will once again step into the role of an assassin fighting an ancient war against the secret society of Templars, negotiating the future of civilization through the pointy end of a hidden blade. The game was once again developed by Ubisoft Montreal, and the series has become one of the biggest franchises in the world. But even while Assassin’s Creed games hit store shelves last year and the year before, developers were quietly working on the next chapter of the franchise, with a new setting, a new engine, and a new protagonist.
A glance at any of the several commercials in seemingly constant rotation online and on TV will confirm that. The details will always be somewhat subjective, but there are more than enough records to paint a relatively accurate picture of what life during those days was like.

May, along with fellow writer Matt Turner and the Ubisoft Montreal team, created Connor as an avatar for us to interact with the historical figures in fictionalized, but a still somewhat faithful recounting of events of that time.
The team even went as far as to speak with linguistic experts about regional dialects of the period, and the cities of New York and Boston have both been painstakingly recreated to their 18th century foundations. Now more than ever, many Americans look to the Founding Fathers with an almost religious zeal that often sees the past through selective lenses, so attempting to deconstruct the myths of that era could prove tricky when gamers experience things about heroes of the past they may not expect — or appreciate. For example, George Washington is remembered as a masterful commander of the Continental Army, inspiring the beleaguered militia to victory over the world’s most powerful military. And the truth is that most of the education that was going on was through books and things that were pillaged from other countries – knowledge that was being, in fact rediscovered after having lain dormant for centuries,” May said.
While the nature of the world at that time may have been different from ours, the core ideals like love, the desire to improve oneself, and especially revenge, were just as powerful motivators as they are today.
One common discussion among fans of the series is where and when would you like to see a game take place. When the game was first being dreamed up, members of the development team plotted out not just the main points that they wanted to focus on in the games, but their secret history of the world, documenting countless possible encounters in the war between the Assassins and the Templars that quietly determined the course of civilization. After graduating from Harvard in 1999, he co-founded Sekretagent Productions with his writing partner Michael “Dooma” Wendschuh in 2002. Although the games are without question the driving force of the Assassin’s Creed series and all canonical lore of the series has to tie into them, the franchise has begun to seep into other media, and the story has spread across time.
Not satisfied with the Hollywood treatment of its game properties, Ubisoft decided to create its own entertainment division, and its first film project will be Assassin’s Creed.
May even attempted to adapt a game several years ago after obtaining the film rights to the original Fallout. The few properties that do manage to make it to the screen tend to undergo massive conversion that compromises what made them attractive in the first place. With the movie fast tracked and being developed by Ubisoft itself, there is a great deal of hope that this will be the property that finally breaks the ceiling and allows the flood of quality game related films that could follow, in much the same way that it took a few successful comic book themed films began a rush on comic properties.
The portable game features the first playable female assassin, Aveline de Grandpre, and takes place in New Orleans between 1765 and 1780. Whether that game is a continuation of Connor’s tale in the same way that Brotherhood and Revelations continued Ezio’s story, or if Ubisoft has a surprise waiting for us, May is certainly deeply involved. Each branch of evil, having its own purpose and utilizing all of the talent, money, and power they achieve. This documentary has put forward some very interesting proof to suggest that that was the case. My column eventually got me a freelancing gig with GMR magazine, which folded a few months later. You can unsubscribe at any time and we'll never share your details without your permission. It was a massive undertaking to release annual iterations while simultaneously working on something that would essentially reboot the series and yet still keep the continuity correct while expanding on it. But while most people can probably describe a rough sense of what happened the day the Declaration of Independence was signed, and names like Bunker Hill are inexorably connected to American history, many of the details of the period remain obscured by the fog of time. Maps can be used to recreate the original look of the  towns, paperwork kept businesses functioning, and many of the most influential people of the day lived lives of renown that were chronicled in books we can study today. That is technically true, of course, but a closer look at the history of the period shows that Washington was wracked with self-doubt, and was constantly fending off personal and political attacks from within the American forces. Historical figures were not perfect, and through those imperfections we can understand and appreciate them. After originally allying themselves with the Dutch settlers in what would become the state of New York, the Mohawks also made peace with the French.
Although May is deeply involved with the development process, he himself is a fan, and mentioned that his personal choices for future locations would be Colonial India, Victorian-era London, and Revolutionary Russia during the early days of the 20th century.
After a brief meeting with Ubisoft’s Chief Creative Officer, Serge Hascoet, where they talked about a Rayman Saturday morning cartoon, May was invited to visit the Montreal offices to discuss possible collaborations in the future.

One graphic novel features an Iberian assassin in the 3rd century, while another story focuses on an assassin that lived during the height of the Roman Empire. The publisher recently announced a partnership with Regency to help produce and distribute the movie, which will star Michael Fassbender, who will also serve as a producer. But even if that isn’t the case, the franchise remains one of the strongest and most successful in all of gaming. Although the games follow different characters in different locations, there will be some crossover, and Connor is said to make an appearance at some point.
Having taken up the life of an assassin for lack of anything better to do, Travis Touchdown has just one goal in life: to be America's greatest hired killer. I was hired on full-time by GamesRadar in late 2005, and have since been paid actual money to write silly articles about lovable blobs.
Bills like the Townshend and Sugar Acts, as well as documents like the Declaration of Rights and Grievances may ring a few bells to those historically minded, but to many they are just feint echoes of civics classes from years past.
It’s conventions like that, that the Ubisoft team has enjoyed exploiting in every AC game. 20 years later, the French would turn and attack them, which led the tribe into the arms of the British and an uneasy alliance.
With each new iteration, there’s a moment where we take a look at what’s available to us, and begin discussions on where and when we’re going to go next. May was soon hired to write the script for Prince of Persia: Warrior Within and has been working in games since. The animated short Embers, which stars an aged Ezio, introduces a Chinese assassin, and May’s hope of a Revolutionary Russian assassin has already been somewhat realized in the comics The Chain and The Fall. May, being a gamer himself, tried to adapt what made the original property such a memorable success with fans, down to the plot of the game. These societies usually practice odd rituals and sometimes overly perverted ones, all to sanctify their commitment to the society.They run our financial institutions, our churches, our schools.
Plot points needed to be laid out years in advance, and the cost of developing games in a spoiler happy world meant that only a relatively small number of people could be involved. More broken promises followed, but ties continued to strengthen between the Mohawks and the British Crown after treaties were signed.
But again and again he was met with a studio mentality based around the sales figures of the game alone, which doomed the project from the start. It seems their reach is never ending, when you’ve been marked an enemy and we’ve seen many who have tried expose these forces lose their lives, in the process.
That left the Mohawks obligated to fight alongside the British, despite having those same treaties negotiated by many of the colonists they found themselves at war against. After the War ended, the Mohawks were then forced north into Canada and west into the wilderness. And his attempts to woo his sexy handler, Sylvia Christel, are repulsively awkward.So why's he on this list? Because despite failing at life, Travis is actually a pretty talented assassin, able to go toe-to-toe with gunfighters and effortlessly reduce legions of armed thugs to screaming fountains of blood.
A talented but arrogant member of the Assassin cult living in the Kingdom of Jerusalem during the Third Crusade, circa 1191, Altair is ceremonially "killed" and resurrected after catastrophically botching an extremely sensitive mission.
He can sprint like the wind and hide in plain sight just by folding his hands, and when cornered he can rapidly cut down any number of enemies (provided you know what you're doing, anyway). Cool talents aside, Altair's a pretty compelling character in his own right, gradually growing out of his arrogant-prick phase to become more noble and altruistic. And as he does, he begins to actually question the morality of what he's doing, something few of the other assassins on this list ever do.
