So we know Connor never really started out in life thinking he'd be an Assassin, but life's kind of funny that way. In Assassin's Creed 3, our hero was pushed into the life of killing by some rather unforeseen and violent circumstances. Not unlike Ezio, in fact. At least, that's the impression the launch trailer has given us.
You know how it goes, having your family and everything you've ever known and loved torn away, leaving you angry and alone. So naturally, you'd gravitate toward legendary cults of killers in hopes of finding answer (or revenge). Fight for a budding nation, meet George Washington. Seems legit.
We hear more of Connor's voice too, in the new trailer. Still takes getting used to, after hearing Ezio for three full Assassin's Creed installments.
