In the first episode, players will take control of Ratonhnhaké:ton who “wakes from an unsettling dream to find that, despite his efforts to deliver justice in the newly-founded United States of America, a new king has been crowned – George Washington. The King goes mad with power and it is up to Ratonhnhaké:ton to acquire the skills he needs to take down the King and see freedom bestowed on the land.
