Leaked Assassin’s Creed III art shows off Mayan pyramids for GameStop’s preorder bonus DLC

leaked assassins creed iii art shows off mayan pyramids for gamestops preorder bonus dlc 3

Leaked images of preorder bonuses for Assassin’s Creed III hint that the game’s revolutionary warrior and cunning assassin might be taking a trip to lands farther away from the colonies than expected.

All Games Beta leaked images of the bonuses that come with the game at both Best Buy and GameStop. In addition to the boring as hell weapons on offer (Some sword, some club, who likes these preorder weapons anyway?) the art shows off some exciting extra solo missions. Best Buy customers get the “Ghost of War” mission, the art for which looks like an abandoned mine. Not exactly top-popping stuff. GameStop customers however get “The Lost Mayan Ruins” solo mission, the art for which shows the new assassin crouching in a jungle before a vine-covered ruin.

Assassin’s Creed likes to keep you on your toes. You know, because Ezio, Altair, and now Mr. Connor Kenway, he of the hatchet-wielding bad-assery in Assassin’s Creed III, need to sneak up on unscrupulous Templar agents across history for a quick knife to the throat. You’ve also got to be limber whilst running across rooftops and whatnot. Ubisoft’s epoch-spanning tale of benevolent killers keeps you on your toes with peculiar plot twists to boot.

If you haven’t played the games: LOOK AWAY!

Like in Assassin’s Creed II when you decipher a bunch of cryptic messages and it’s revealed that the Templar’s freaky super tools actually came from ALIENS! Aliens that are actually responsible for populating the Earth with human beings, human beings that revolted against their cruel masters and escaped from the technological wonderland of Eden!

Assassin’s Creed games are constantly building on top of this zany mythology and the inclusion of not just the Revolutionary War—a subject that always lends itself to wild, Nicholas Cage-film-inspiring conspiracy theories—but also ancient Mayan culture means this latest entry could go for the gusto.

The possibilities are myriad actually. While it’s safe to assume that it’s Connor and not Ezio or Altair at the ruins—because one character model is cheaper than two and this is non-essential bonus content—we don’t know when he’s visiting this temple. Were the Mayans direct servants of humanity’s alien overlords? Does the pictured pyramid hide more powerful artifacts from before humanity’s creation to use in the war with the Templars?

Or is that Miles, the series’ present day protagonist, finally embracing his destiny?

You’ve got to hand it to Ubisoft. It’s easy to predict how these games will play year in and year out, but not so easy to predict what’s going to happen in them.
