Assassin's Creed 3 unveiled for Nintendo Wii U, Xbox 360 & PS3

Assassin's Creed 3 looks set to be a game of firsts; the first game to feature a new graphics engine and the first game to be announced on Wii U

Assassin's Creed 3 has officially been unveiled for Nintendo Wii U, Xbox 360, PC and Sony PS3. The largest game yet Assassin's Creed 3 has been three years in the making.

The fifth game in the series and the 3rd game to feature a completely new Assassin Assassin’s Creed 3 will throw players into the midst of the American Revolution.

 

Assassin's Creed 3 Story:

Set during the late 18th Century Assassin’s Creed 3 will see Desmond visit a brand-new time period and a brand-new Assassin called Connor.

Originally named Ratohnaké:ton but adopting the first name Connor, our hero is half-English and half-Native American. Raised by the Mohawks the Assassin will find himself plunged into the middle of America’s bloody birth.

Assassin’s Creed 3 will see Connor explore a world larger than any Assassin’s Creed game before it and will have him traversing locations from the wild savagery of the Frontier to the bustling streets of Colonial towns.

Also confirmed is the fact he’ll be involved in some way with some major historical battles that took place including Washington’s clash with the British Army.

 According to Ubisoft's CEO Yves Guillemot Assassin's Creed 3 has been three years in the making and will be larger than any of the previous games.

"We will push the title a lot because it's a fantastic product that the team has been working for three years," said CEO Yves Guillemot. "What we have seen is just fabulous."

Unlike Assassin’s Creed: Revelations this latest instalment has been built from scratch with an entirely new graphics engine.

Speaking about the graphics Guillemot confirms this will be the most visually stunning game yet making use of the entirely new Ubisoft-AnvilNext engine.

“Whether you’re a longtime fan of Assassin’s Creed or if you’re new to the franchise, you’re going to be blown away by the scale and marvel of Assassin’s Creed III”

The American Revolution is certainly a departure from the high-rising spires of Constantinople and Rome and is sure to bring with it a new approach to playing as an Assassin.

Assassin's Creed 3 Release Date

The Assassin’s Creed 3 official release date is 31 October 2012 for the Xbox 360, PC and Sony PS3 whilst Ubisoft have confirmed the game is also in development for Wii U by Nintendo.

No word on whether this means the Nintendo Wii U will be arriving before Christmas however it does give a firm indication that the next-gen console will be landing around that time.
