After last weeks leaks Ubisoft rolled up their sleeves and just officially revealed the trailer today along with a press release. Back in January, Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot said, “…we’re confident that the next installment of Assassin’s Creed will be the biggest to date.” He wasn’t exaggerating. This title has been in development for three years from Ubisoft Montreal collaborating with six other first-party studios, twice the size of the production capacity from previous titles. Some of the leaked artwork, from comic artist Alex Ross, last week will be the cover for the Limited Edition collectible case when you pre-order.
Ubisoft-AnvilNext will power Assassin’s Creed III, what they call, “a revolutionary new game engine that delivers breakthroughs in visual quality, character models and artificial intelligence. Assassin’s Creed III will feature a ground-breaking level of stunning graphics that bring Colonial America to life.”
The snowy, North American forest is a large and wise departure from the usual towers and castles. This is a big response to gamers who kept saying Assassin’s Creed will keep repeating itself. I’m just curious if the hidden blade will still be around?
“Set against the backdrop of the American Revolution in the late 18th century, Assassin’s Creed III introduces a new hero, Ratohnaké:ton, of Native American and English heritage. Adopting the name Connor, he becomes the new voice for justice in the ancient war between the Assassins and Templars. Players become an Assassin in the war for liberty against ruthless tyranny in the most stylized and fluid combat experiences in the franchise to date. Assassin’s Creed III spans the Revolutionary War, taking gamers from the vibrant, untamed frontier to bustling colonial towns and the intense, chaotic battlefields where George Washington’s Continental Army clashed with the imposing British Army.”
The game will come out on October 31st for Xbox 360, PlayStation3, Windows PC and Wii U.
