Assassin's Creed III

Company: Ubisoft

Previous games in Ubisoft's popular action series have been set in the Middle Ages, so the shift to an American Revolutionary War setting has fans excited. You'll play an assassin who's half Native American and helps the colonies defeat the British in key battles. Look for cameos in the game from everyone from George Washington to Benjamin Franklin. And look for Ubisoft to support it with the largest marketing campaign in its history.
