Another pro-American Assassin’s Creed III trailer showing the British as the enemy

Ubisoft has released a pro-American live-action trailer for Assassin’s Creed III. It makes sense, since today is Independence Day. But not everybody is pleased with the trailer, since some British fans have been complaining that it shows the redcoats in a bad light. None of the Assassin’s Creed III trailers so far have shown the main protagonist, Connor, killing the patriots. In past Assassin’s Creed games, Altair’s nationality was never glorified. The same goes for Ezio and his Italian heritage.

Is Ubisoft secretly trying to start a war between the British and the Americans? Ubisoft is a French company after all. And the song featured in the video is composed by Arcade Fire, a Canadian band. The French and Canadians are planning something. I’m just joking, or am I?

I did enjoy the video, but I can understand why some of the British fans would be mad. The only thing that bugged me about the trailer is the kid that doesn’t want to learn world history because he’ll never see that country (okay, so I’m just bitter I had to take art history in college, ugh).
