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.”

Assassin’s Creed III also can be pre-ordered at UBIShop® by visiting: http://shop.ubi.com/assassinscreed3

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

Looks awesome, as a CGI trailer.

But I need to see gameplay video to get impressed and really care for it.

Then why did you watch and comment on the trailer? All of the Assassin's Creed games' first reveals have always been CGI.

In engine apparently, whatever that means nowadays.

I knew the trailer wouldn't reveal much, 'announcement' trailers rarely do. But I've heard all the details and that's enough for me to get excited.

I've honestly had little desire to play AC since 1, but this has really caught my eye. Seems like this is going to really mix things up a lot, which the series needed in my opinion.

The engine updates sound fantastic as well. They're aiming to make it look 'next' gen on 'current' gen... superlative soundbite or not, I'm expecting it to look killer based on what we've been told.

But, perhaps best of all, they're aiming to finish it in little more than a few weeks. Months of tweaking/polishing could do the game wonders.

How are you people mistaking this for CG?

Go take a look at the previous AC reveal trailers which truly were CG.

This is not.

Yeah, I'd say you're right. Judging by Ubisoft previous CGI-trailers. They have this movie like quality to them.
Here's a good example: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BjsxU4uK-wI

Watching again in 1080p... :P

In-engine can mean like Uncharted 3 how they use it for cutscenes but when gameplay shows up its different.

In-engine doesn't mean CGI. They're two completely different things.

day one buy for sure...I've loved the entire series since AC 1. I dont see how people write off the series because of tweaks here and there and different gameplay components. I mean sure some were a hit and others were a miss, but ITS A NEW GAME!!! I'm really in it for the story, I just have to find out where this is all going.

whenever i see the ubisoft logo at the beginning of a trailer, i remember good old days when they made awesome prince of persia games. AC is great frachise no doubt, but isn't as great as pop series imo..
