Ubisoft has released the first in a series of dev diaries that promise to delve deep into the development of Assassin's Creed 3, while also getting us more pumped for a history lesson than any class or textbook ever did.

Maybe that's because they're dead set on depicting the American Revolution as the brutal and violent struggle that it really was, rather than the watered-down version we get in school.

What we're really hoping for is The Patriot, but with more conspiracies and less (much less) crazy Mel Gibson.

Check out episode one of "Inside Assassin's Creed 3" and let us know what you're looking forward to in the game below or on Twitter.
