That's even more awesome.(For PC people http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/shady.gif)
The investigation missions got boring because of the repetetiveness.

Anyway, in some old dev diary Patrice talked about different things he would like to have in the game that weren't. He also said that he wanted to make a director's cut with those things included. Maybe they will be in the PC version.

And Ashwx: I totally agree.

It's interesting that the requirements are different to those posted and then removed from the Ubi Support site, less memory required compared to the first post, and the lower end graphics cards have to be PCI-Express, I assume slower cards, combined with AGP transfer rates would be insufficient.
This explains why the first requirements were removed from the site, as presumably they were not the requirements for the final game release.

Hey how do you guys think an overclocked 3800+ with 2gb ram and a 8600gt 512mb will run it?

Thanks.

Hey how do you guys think an overclocked 3800+
I presume that's a single core?

Won't work because it does not match the minimum requirement of a dual core processor.

I'm sorry for you, I had the same problem until I bought a new system.

Wait, so it HAS to be dual core, no matter how good of a single core it is?

That sucks. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif - Actually they are quite cheap...

I can only assume they use the dual cores to separately handle different processes of the game, and that's why a single core CPU is insufficient

And if its Directors cut, then they must not be fun missions. Not nearly as fun as the sit on a bench and press Y missions.

Hey... would you look at that... 4 new missions AND it's ten bucks cheaper than the REGULAR VERSION on the consoles.

How about you put those missions in some DLC for the console people? More cash for you... more content for us.

INTERESTING

I fail to see any official annoucements YET from Ubisoft

First off heres my summary:

#1 There is no moderators posting an entirely brand new thread containing information about the PC found here:

http://forums.ubi.com/groupee/forums?a=frm&s=400102&f=5251069024

#2 Ubisoft on their corporate website still shows no information about a PC titled "Assassins Creed" which you can see here:

http://www.ubisoftgroup.com/

#3 Next if you go to Gamestop.com and do a Search for Assassins Creed there is only but one match showing up for PC; thus meaning either only the Directors will be sold or there is no information about the Directors Version just yet:

http://www.gamestop.com/search.asp?Ntk=TitleKeyword&Ntx...=Assassins+Creed&N=0 (http://www.gamestop.com/search.asp?Ntk=TitleKeyword&Ntx=mode%2Bmatchallpartial&Ntt=Assassins+Creed&N=0)


#4 If Gamestop isnt your reliable source; how about Amazon.com??

http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_ss_gw/102-8295136-940812...assins+Creed+Windows (http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_ss_gw/102-8295136-9408126?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=Assassins+Creed+Windows)



My whole point of this???

I'm still gonna play the waiting game, 99% of the time once theres a solid date, once theres solid proof that this game for PC "Assassins Creed" has gone gold; all information including specs, pre orders, different versions of items will be on UbiSofts website as well as Moderators opening/stickying a brand new thread entitled "PC Version of AC going gold"

Believe me I want this for PC as much as you do, I've been waiting as long as you have. True I have it for Playstation 3 but for once I can compare the differences between a console and the PC, the difference between Direct X 10 and something else lol

I withdraw a portion of my statements

Found here on the official website is the press release:

http://assassinscreed.us.ubi.com/index_live.php

I see no specs
I see no true date
I see no words such as "Directors Cut"

If you really want; heres the actual article I see on Assassins Creed Website:

Today Ubisoft, one of the world's largest video game publishers, announced that Assassin's Creed for PC will be available at retailers nationwide in March.

Assassin's Creed for PC follows in the wake of the critically acclaimed and worldwide console hit Assassin's Creed, and will feature four brand-new exclusive types of investigations, providing even more ways for players to explore the various locations of the Third Crusade. Players will assume the role of the main character, Altair, and will work to stop hostilities by suppressing both sides of the conflict and experience the art of a master assassin. With more than 2.5 million units of the console versions sold to date in North America alone since its mid-November 2007 launch, Assassin's Creed for PC is set to expand upon this success.

"We are thrilled to bring Assassin's Creed to an eager PC audience and we anticipate the game will resonate with them just has it has across the other platforms," said Tony Key, senior vice president of sales and marketing at Ubisoft. "In addition, the development team was able to integrate exclusive content into this version of Assassin's Creed, making it an even better and unique experience for PC gamers."

Hey they took thier time to ensure we the gamers would enjoy our experience with the game.

So we dont have a date along with specs...

The date doesnt matter, since we waited this long and we now know they arent in Honolulu drinking beer and relaxing.

The specs are irrelevant if we have upgraded your pc with a quad cpu, and the latest hardware.

if the 360 controller is recormended i put money on the controls are going to suck big time.

but nice to see we get something for waiting and with them new specs im even further above them so this should be good when it comes out. be interesting to see why it needs the dual core or uses it.

and just have to say
PC + DX10 > console

You should take a closer lookt at the requirements
ATI RADEON X1600*/1650* -1950/HD 2000/3000 series NVIDIA GeForce 6800* /7/8/9 series

*PCI Express only supported
It isn't saying AGP isn't supported, it's only saying the X1600/1650 and 6800 cards must be PCI-Express.


However, your card has only half the memory requirements, so you will still need a better card, and as moqqy said, the 7300 is a low spec card.

I see your point, but it would've been nice if they had stated the different versions when the game first came out. If I wanted the DC version, I would've waited to buy it for the pc rather than rushing to go buy it for 60 bucks when it fist came out with less content
