Assassin’s Creed III Novel Tomahawks Book Stores in December


After finishing off Assassin’s Creed III when it ships in October, you may find yourself hankering to learn more about the game’s half-British, half-Native American assassin newcomer, Connor (aka Ratonhnhaké:ton). Well, Ubisoft has plans to expand Connor’s history beyond interactive media and give Assassin’s Creed fans a deeper understanding of the game world they hold so dear.

With four previous series novelizations under his belt, author and historian Oliver Bowden (pen-name for Anton Gill) is returning to tell the full story about Connor and his rise to assassin badassery in the upcoming novel, Assassin’s Creed: Forsaken. Forsaken will be published December 4th as mass market paperback for $9.99.

Read the early synopsis:

Assassin’s Creed: Forsaken is the latest thrilling novelization by Oliver Bowden based on the phenomenally successful game series. The new game, Assassin’s Creed III, takes one of gaming’s most popular franchises to new heights in its most realistic world yet and introduces a brand new Assassin, Connor.

Set during the American Revolution, Connor has sworn to secure liberty for his people and his nation and unleashes his powerful skills on the chaotic, bloodsoaked battlefields of the hostile American wilderness. Assassin’s Creed: Forsaken is the story behind who Connor really is and how he has become a deadly killer.

The world of the Assassins has become far more lethal than ever before.
