As you may have noticed from the thousands of TV advertisements over the past few weeks, Assassin’s Creed III has been released. And Minecraft is no exception to the wave of promotional content surrounding the game.
This British redcoat Minecraft skin is based off the main enemies in Assassin’s Creed III. Unlike other promotional Minecraft content in the past, this skin wasn’t created by Ubisoft or anybody related to the company behind Assassin’s Creed III. Instead, it was created by a skinner with a love for both Minecraft and Assassin’s Creed.
The skin is very well done and brings an authentic British redcoat soldier into the Minecraft world. Although it doesn’t look quite as good as the in-game screenshots from Assassin’s Creed III, it certainly doesn’t look bad. Little details like the hat and tabard have been painstakingly recreated.
Ultimately, this skin is a perfect way to ring in the release of Assassin’s Creed III. In fact, the skinner released it on October 30, 2012, which is the day ACIII was released. In any case, you can download the skin today from here.
