Assassin's Creed III: The Complete Unofficial Guide, a Teacher's Limited Edition

Assassin’s Creed III (2012) was released with much fanfare, as it was the third major title in a series of successful open-world, sandbox titles. By design, Assassin’s Creed III takes one step further at becoming a great piece of historical fiction which has intrigued gamer designers and history educators alike. The detail and accuracy in the painstakingly recreated 18th century cities and frontiers has received high praise and force the player to explore all that is around them—a staple of sandbox video games. Additionally, because the fictional storyline was written to closely follow the mystery surrounding real life events during the American Revolution, the game has become an excellent source for players to discover unknowns about these events, to uncover the variety of perspectives, and to investigate the causes and effects of political unrest present throughout the time.
