Assassin’s Creed 3 attempts to tackle most of the key moments of the American Revolution, and the PlayStation 3 version of the game will look at one of the biggest: the betrayal of Benedict Arnold and his plan to compromise West Point.
PlayStation.Blog talked to AC3 script writer Matt Turner about the four exclusive PS3 single-player missions revolving around Arnold:
We have some scenes that have the actual words spoken by key players in the events at West Point, according to the records from the court proceedings following what happened. On the other side of things, we needed to inject it with some gameplay so there are some liberties in terms of the action. But who was there, what they did, and what happened to them is as precise as the history books would allow.
The blog also released a trailer giving a glimpse at some of the things Connor will be doing to stop the plot when the game hits shelves on October 30.
