Assassins Creed 3 may take us to the American Revolution era whose story is more than evident (spoiler: America Wins) but Assassins Creed has always had a unique sense of story telling and hidden messages in images (Those of us who had to travel through Subject 16’s memories in Brotherhood and Assassins Creed 2 are all too familiar with this) but this time Ubisoft has really pulled a fast one on the fans as they haven’t even waited for a game to hide said image in. What appears to be a simple picture is actually a puzzle, It may look like an Assassin overseeing a boxing match but in reality it looks like something more! Especially when you examine it in it’s finer details! I bet you probably wouldn’t have guessed there is a QR-Code hidden somewhere. With all the excitement for Assassins Creed 3 this is some very clever marketing taking place right here!

With the games release date drawing ever so close its no wonder that the studio is building up so much hype but its only up to imagination as to what hidden message this image holds for us to discover! Assassins Creed 3 is undoubtedly one of the more anticipated games of this quarter right along side Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 but this year has yet to end with a bang with the December release of Far Cry 3 which is going to be a huge hit.
