Assassin’s Creed 3 received an ace new trailer yesterday – watch it here if you haven’t seen it yet – but the American version has been censored to remove scenes of protagonist Connor killing American troops. See the comparison below.

Here’s the European version – note the scene of Connor brutally slaughtering American troops at 02:09.

Watch on YouTube

Now watch the shorter American version here.

The American version is 30 seconds shorter and does not include any scenes where American troops are being killed, despite Connor clearly being a character who fights on both sides of the war.

What do you make of the censorship? Let us know below.
