Assassins Creed 3 is the last free game to be offered by Ubisoft as part of their 30th Anniversary celebrations. Originally launched in 2012, the 3rd game in the nearly annual franchise was the first in the series to use the Anvil engine which brought with it better controls and improved graphics.
The action-adventure game told a dual-narrative set in 1775 America and the then present day of 2012. Narratively, it is notable for culminating the story of modern day protagonist Desmond Miles. The past storyline put players in the shoes of Connor Kenway as he fights the Templars’ attempts to take over his native land.
The game was positively received for various changes but was criticised for the uneven gameplay mechanics. Although the glitches were patched out, the series would start to develop a reputation for being unstable at launch. Opting to refresh the series after releasing AC:Syndicate in 2015, the company has gone back to the drawing board and skipped this year. Instead, a movie set in the universe of the games is launching on 21 December.
