Assassin's Creed III 'will be welcoming to newcomers'

Gamers who are looking to get into the acclaimed Assassin's Creed series will have no better opportunity than the forthcoming Assassin's Creed III.

Ubisoft UK managing director Rob Cooper told MCV that the gamemaker is expecting the new Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii U and PC adventure to bring new fans to the already popular series, making it one of Ubisoft's biggest launches ever.

Though this is the fifth instalment in the core series, Assassin's Creed III represents a brand new chapter, shifting the action to revolutionary-era America and introducing a new protagonist.

Powered by the stunning new Ubisoft-AnvilNext graphics engine, the game will offer amazing visuals, fluid combat and an immersive setting that takes players from frontier towns to bloody battlefields.

The game will be released in October 2012 and is set to be one of the defining releases of the Christmas period.

Mr Cooper said: "This is a great time for gamers to join the adventure. There's a huge will from Ubisoft to bring more gamers into this universe."
