Ubisoft and Sony have officially confirmed that the four missions exclusive to the PlayStation 3 version of Assassin’s Creed 3 focus on Benedict Arnold and his traitorous efforts to take down the fort at West Point.
Assassin’s Creed 3 is going to deliver a sprawling experience focusing on Connor, a young half-Native American, half-British citizen who needs to stop the Templars that are influencing the American Revolution.
We already saw and heard plenty of things about the core plot of the game, and now Ubisoft and Sony have revealed the first actual details about the four missions that are available exclusively on the PlayStation 3 version of Assassin’s Creed 3.
“Benedict Arnold’s secret plot to betray West Point and sabotage the American Revolution earned him the ultimate mark of infamy: a name that will forevermore be synonymous with deceit and treachery. And on October 30th, the most reviled turncoat in American history will be virtually resurrected in Assassin’s Creed III to pay his dues once more — but only on PlayStation 3,” Sony’s Sid Shuman said on the PS blog.
The four missions will be included in a special arc towards the end of the game and will provide more backstory into the whole revolutionary effort, according to the two companies.
“The PS3-exclusive four-mission arc begins with a special request from General Washington in exposing a rumored plot to overthrow West Point, a critical link in the defense of the Colonies against Great Britain. Across four missions, Connor will flush out Loyalist spies and work undercover for Benedict Arnold, culminating in a full-blown assault on West Point that Connor must halt at all costs,” Shuman added.
According to Assassin’s Creed 3 scriptwriter, Matt Turner, the extra missions are faithful in their portrayal of the events at West Point, with some dialog even taken straight from the papers and documents from that time.
