We told you that Assassin’s Creed 3 was due to be unveiled by Ubisoft very soon and we’re pleased to say that the game has finally been given its world premiere. The first teaser trailer has now been revealed, as well as one big surprise that you may not have been expecting to see.
As expected, Assassin’s Creed 3 is being developed for the Xbox 360, PS3 and PC but Ubisoft has confirmed the surprising news that the game will also be coming to Nintendo’s upcoming Wii U console as well. A date of October 31 2012 has been set in place for the console and PC versions, but it remains to be seen if this relates to the Wii U version as well – we doubt it.
A trailer released once again confirms that the game will take place during the American Revolution, with the main character now revealed as Ratohnhake:ton (pronounced Ra-doon-ha-gay-doo), or Connor for short. He has been introduced as a Native American, with his mother being American but having an English background due to his father.
We see much more of the forest elements of the game that we first saw in some leaked screenshots yesterday, and there’s one scene in particular where we see Connor almost ‘free running’ on some trees which will probably get a lot of you talking. The game looks fantastic in our opinion, although we’ve read that some of you are not too impressed by some of the facial models seen on some of the characters.
With a Wii U version on the way too – does that perhaps suggest that it could end up being the best version compared to the other three? Nobody knows for sure what hardware will be included in the Wii U, so we have a sneaky suspicion that the Wii U version is going to be one to look out for.
Check out the trailer below and let us know your initial impressions of the game. Still pumped up for it or not?
