Ubisoft is trying to stay true to the American history aspect of Assassin's Creed 3, at least as faithful as you can be with templars and assassin's melded into the storyline. But the latest trailer for the game is more a lesson on the Boston Tea Party than anything having to do with Connor's exploits.
The trailer comes in at almost two minutes long, but you get nothing about the game itself for the first minute and 20 seconds. It's all a history lesson. Connor shows up for about 13 seconds after that, and in one scene, symbolically raises a box of tea over his head.
Check out the trailer below if you want to get up to speed on what led to the American Revolution. You may catch a glimpse of Connor gladhanding George Washington.
