Four new Assassin's Creed III screenshots have leaked ahead of the game's official Monday reveal.

Following yesterday's confirmation that the game will take place during the American Revolution (via a box art reveal), four new screenshots have been made public showing the game's new protagonist in a number of settings including a town, a forest, and icy region. 

These new images (via) come ahead of the publishers planned Assassin's Creed III official reveal on Monday, March 5th at 5PM.

Game Informer, who accidently leaked an Assassin's Creed III banner, has also gone live with its cover images, showing the new Assassin's Creed III hero wielding an axe and pistol.

The magazine writes:

Ever since the conclusion of Assassin's Creed II, a senior team of Ubisoft developers has been secretly toiling away on what comes next. That team aimed high, with plans to examine and rethink every element of the franchise from the ground up, build something new, and take a full three year development cycle to do it.

The game that emerged is Assassin's Creed III. Set in the latter half of the 18th century, we'll see the war between the Templars and the Assassins escalate as it crosses over to the New World of America, and witness firsthand the events of the American Revolution.

Caught in the conflict is a daring new hero in the Assassin's Creed franchise. We have the full story of this new hero and the striking game in which he stars, along with exclusive screens and art from the project, all packed into a massive 13-page cover story.

Assassin's Creed III is due out on October 30th.  Ubisoft CEO has promised it will be the "biggest" Assassin's Creed installment to date.
