Assassin's Creed 3 Release Date and First Trailer

Ubisoft has officially confirmed that Assassin's Creed 3 should launch on October 30, 2012 in the US and October 31, 2012 in the UK for Xbox 360, PS3, Wii U and PC. Since the Xbox 360 and PS3 were the previous lead platforms for the Assassin's Creed games, it wouldn't be surprising if the PC and Wii U versions would arrive a few weeks later. Ubisoft released Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood and Assassin's Creed: Revelations on OnLive day-and-date with the PC versions, so let's hope that Ubi keeps it this way.

Ubi says that AC3 is the largest project in its history. Ubisoft Montreal and six other first party studios have been working on it for over three years with twice the production capacity of any previous title from the publisher.

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.

The Ubisoft-AnvilNext game engine is capable of putting thousand-man battles on screen, has a brand new animation system and holds promise of impressive facial animations.

As you can see in the trailer, apart from buildings the player is also capable of leaping and climbing trees and mountain cliffs. Previous Assassin's Creed games are known for their spectacular medieval cities. This time Ubi promises that the natural landscapes will also play a big role, as is also apparent from the trailer. Ubisoft refers to the wilderness as the frontier. But there are of course spectacular cities in the game. What would an Assassin's Creed game be without spectacular cities. This time the game will center between Boston and New York.

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.

Apart from George Washington you'll also meet Benjamin Franklin and Charles Lee in the game.

"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."
