    Okay so, we all know that Ubisoft is a French company, for those who don't know Assassin's Creed 3 will take place during the American Revolution. How would people in the UK feel about killing Brits as Americans (Yanks)??

    I'm not an American, born in Slovakia.. but..this does kind of concern me.. are the Brits going to boycott this game? Or what are your feelings about this? Please do share.. Thank you.

    Don't care as long as the game is good.

    It didn't seem to harm the Uncharted 3 sales figures.

    I'll never get my Orc looking the same again.

    As long as the British are portrayed as snooty, tea drinking stereotypes so we can have a laugh at it I'll be happy.

    I'm not sure if supporting the American Revolution is "evil"?

    Who cares who we have to kill. I'll stab anyone in the face as long as its fun.

    As long as it has tearing and awful combat it'll be fine.

    American villains are always rich douchebags, British villains are classy and polite, usually enjoying a glass of wine while they outline your imminent death

    I hope they're all Alan Rickman and Peter Cushing clones

    @Fat_Pigeon

    They dumped a load of tea in Boston Harbour, if that doesn't make them evil I don't know what does.

    I forgot about the Boston Tea Party. Good point well made.

    BAN THIS SICK FILTH.

    I've played quite a few games where the hero is some gruff talking wall of meat American and the evil calculating underhand cheating weasley villan is British.

    We're used to it ;)

    No, but as a Templar I feel sickened by the vilification my group receives in this series.

    Look, I can't play this game if I feel like I'm betraying my ancestors by helping out these colonial scum!

    ...

    Of course I'm fine with him killing both sides indiscriminately and taking America back for the native population:)

    Why would it be any worse to kill polygon people of the same nationality?

    It would be nice if the first American Civil War wasn't portrayed as black and white, good vs evil though.

    Everything is better with a bit of pie.

    Anyway, didn't details leak earlier on how he would be fighting the English and Americans? Like there's Templars on both sides.

    Besides back then the Americans were bearly a generation removed from the UK, so they're still technically English.

    Our run as the first-choice Hollywood bad guy was squished between the much longer reigns of Russians and Ay-rabs (aka anyone a bit swarthy-looking according to Hollywood).

    How much killing do we have to do to get a decent run at this role?

    Everyone knows if you want a good bad guy, you make him English. Preferably Alan Rickman. Although ideally Alan Rickman would also be the good guy, and possibly the support cast too.

    If you want a rubbish bad guy you have a generic 'European' guy with a ponytail.

    Or Timothy Olyphant being underused.

    I reckon Olyphant is a Cage-in-waiting.

    Trust a French company to perpetuate stereotypes and American/British rivavlry. Just as we were all getting along...

    Well the lore establishes that the Founding Fathers were evil Templars, so I wouldn't be surprised if we actually play an Englishman killing Americans.
