Up until this point, Assassin’s Creed protagonist Desmond Miles has taken a bit of a backseat in favor of fleshing out the stories of his ancestors. Fortunately – or unfortunately depending on your feelings toward the character – it looks like Desmond will be getting his fair share of screen time in Assassin’s Creed 3.
Matt Turner, the lead writer on AC3 has confirmed that the upcoming game will feature more Desmond than ever before, and that the present day storyline will play a much larger role on the game’s overall plot. Speaking to CVG, Turner explained:
All I can say about Desmond’s story is you’re going to experience more Desmond than you’ve ever had before. We’re spending more time on the present than we have in past games.
Considering the fact that Desmond has had plenty of time to familiarize himself with his ancestors and the ways of an assassin, maybe we’ll actually get to play as Desmond in some interesting acrobatic and combat sequences.
