Ubisoft® Ignites the American Revolution with Assassin’s Creed® III
Paris, France — 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 new hero for the ages.
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, Ratohnhaké: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.”
When it's about The Witcher 3, people are more forgiving. Then suddenly 30fps becomes 'fine' (10 minutes ago)
@Megido: Sure. It's your preference, but the only thing I meant was '30 fps is not considered fine on PC'. When WatchDogs, AC: Unity, ... ran below 60 on PC, people say it runs awful. (11 minutes ago)
But in a game like this, where 60 fpa isnt essential, id rather have it look great and run at 30. But thats just me. (3 Hours ago)
@droezelke: Depends on what hardware you have, no? I have a computer thats 2 years old, and i can still almost max a game out with above 30. Thats fine by me. Couls lower the wettings to get 60 easy. (4 Hours ago)
@Megido: I don't want to sound elitist, but 30fps on PC is not fine. (4 Hours ago)
also if the nvudia hair crap bogs your fpa down, just turn it off, its barwly noticeable anyway :P (4 Hours ago)
@cma112087: i can play it fine, well anove 30 fps with most settings on higj, and some on ultra, no fix required. Gtx 780 was a good buy :) (5 Hours ago)
