New Title Promises to Be Biggest, Most Ambitious
in Company’s History

London, UK — March 5, 2012 — Assassin’s Creed® III will hit store shelves on October 31, 2012, encouraging gamers to experience the American Revolutionary War not written about in history books. The largest project in Ubisoft’s history also introduces a brand new hero.

With a development cycle of over three years and twice the production capacity of any previous Ubisoft game, Assassin’s Creed III is set to release on the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system, Windows PC and is also in development for Wii U™ from Nintendo. Assassin’s Creed III is developed by Ubisoft Montreal in collaboration with six other Ubisoft studios.

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.

Assassin’s Creed III is powered by Ubisoft-AnvilNext, 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.

“Assassin’s Creed III features the franchise’s most expansive setting so far, along with an exciting new hero and exponentially more gameplay,” said Yves Guillemot, chief executive officer at Ubisoft. “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.”

Additional Assassin’s Creed III details can be found in exclusive cover features in the next issues of Official Xbox Magazine (20th March), Official Playstation Magazine (20th March) and Nintendo Gamer (23rd March).

New artwork from Assassin’s Creed III also will be featured in Assassin’s Creed Recollection, the real-time board game for the iPad.

Pretty ho-hum first trailer. Hope the six or ten billion trailers to follow do a little more to get me excited about the game.

As an aside, I had to watch the trailer on another site, because when the countdown stopped on Ubi's site, it wouldn't load. It is reassuring to know that SOME things will never change. :D

Awesome first trailer! and me too thergbcolor lol

03-05-2012, 06:27 PM
watched it on ign because ubi failed again lol.

Either way the graphics look a lot better... I hope trees do feel natural. Calling out wolves would be cool, but so far it looks solid..hoping to see more trailers and new features.

Kinda looks dual weilding weapons might be a possibility!

Btw, dont bring back the hook blade!

I would say for a first Trailer it was nice to see a new Assassin that is aggressive when he fights. I hope the movement is just as fluid in Gameplay as it is in the Trailer or close to it.

How about fixing the previous releases? Oh wait, there's no money in going back to do that! pmsl

Is there a reason why I should have to read tiny, gray fonts on black background except from going blind in my effort to read?

The trailer seems promising but less exciting than previous titles. It reminds me Michael Mann's "The Last of the Mohicans", with Connor replacing Daniel Day-Lewis and featuring Ezio's fighting movements.
