As Ubisoft has been hyping Assassin’s Creed 3 these past few months, they’ve repeatedly us thatwe won’t only be fighting British soldiers in the game, but also American colonists. However, all — or at least most — of the trailers released to us have shown Connor fighting off and brutally killing the British.
Apparently, that’s because Ubisoft has keeping the American killing censored from us here in the United States. As spotted by Kotaku,yesterday’s Assassin’s Creed 3 traileractually had two versions — a U.S. one and a UK one — each roughly the same in concept, but varying slightly in execution. The difference is about 30 seconds in length with one crucial scene omitted in the U.S. version — a shot of Connor quickly and brutally slaughtering a squad of colonial Americans. It happens around 2:09 and it’s really not that big of a deal, but Ubisoft sure seems to think so.
