Assassin’s Creed 3 PC release date revealed: Get your order in now!
Assassin’s Creed 3, the latest instalment in the sneaky, stabby action game series from Ubisoft, has been given a PC release date. After whisperings of a slight delay, the Windows version will indeed be debuting several weeks after its console counterparts, but it’s not too bad a wait.
Ubisoft has just confirmed the release date for Assassin’s Creed 3 on PC will be 23 November in the UK and Europe, and 20 November over in the US. That’s three weeks after Assassin’s Creed 3 goes on sale in the UK on Xbox 360 and PS3, and spin off game Assassin’s Creed 3: Liberation lands on the PS Vita handheld on 31 October. Assassin’s Creed 3 is also expected to arrive as a launch title for Nintendo’s Wii U when it goes on sale later this year.
PC ports of a console games can typically suffer from a slight delay, but it’s not too large a one in the grand scheme of things. For instance, Rockstar Games’ hit detective title, LA Noire, arrived on PC six months after its launch on console.
Assassin’s Creed 3, which is set during the American war of independence in the 1770s and 1780s, is now available for pre-order on all three platforms. It’s the first radical change in setting since 2009’s Assassin’s Creed 2 – two further follow ups, Brotherhood and Revelations, were also set in Renaissance Europe – but promises the same exciting mix of stealth, espionage and frantic action.
