Revolutionary Assassin's Creed III coming in October

Ubisoft has revealed that Assassin's Creed III will be launching in October 2012 and will transport the acclaimed series into the era of the American Revolution.

The forthcoming blockbuster is being billed as Ubisoft's grandest production ever and will be coming to Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC and Nintendo's new Wii U.

After a trilogy of games set in Renaissance-era Italy, Assassin's Creed III shifts to the late 18th century and follows a new protagonist, Connor, a trained killer of mixed English and Native American blood.

The game promises some of the most fluid and dynamic combat yet seen in the series, with the action taking players from wild frontiers and thriving colonial towns to the brutal battlefields where the American and British armies clashed.

In development for more than three years, the title will also introduce a stunning new game engine called Ubisoft-AnvilNext, which will deliver amazing visuals and sophisticated AI.

Yves Guillemot, chief executive officer at Ubisoft, said: "Whether you're a long-time 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."
