Some of the missions take place in Haiti and some of the characters actually speak creole.

The story of a dark-skinned protagonist fighting to free the slaves living on plantations in what would eventually become Haiti might seem like the wrong choice for a team of French Canadians to work on, but Murray believes it’s important for the game industry to be as representative as possible.

That nuance of showing the experience of slaves in the Caribbean without it feeling false was accomplished through extensive research. Ubisoft Montreal takes the historical accuracy of its Assassin’s Creed games very seriously, going so far as to hire a historian to be on staff for each game. As you might imagine, it is difficult to find first-hand accounts of what it was like to be a slave in the 18th century, and any documents that do exist are written by the white colonists. Those accounts are, according to Murray, “appalling.”
