Assassin’s Creed III confirmed for Wii U

Ubisoft have confirmed that they are to release Assassin’s Creed III for Wii U, having unveiled a reveal trailer for the latest instalment within the franchise.

It’s due to release worldwide across PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC on October 31st, and has been developed over the past three years with twice the production capacity of that utilised for any previous entry, with Ubisoft Montreal collaborating with six other Ubisoft studios. It is unclear as to whether the Wii U release will also share such a launch date.

In the shoes of a new assassin, you’ll play as Ratohnaké:ton, a Native American of English heritage, in a storyline set during the Revolutionary War. Adopting the name Connor, this new protagonist joins the war for liberty, spanning locals that include colonial towns to chaotic battlefields where George Washington’s Continental Army clash with the imposing British Army.

Powered by a revolutionary new game engine, Ubisoft-AnvilNext, Assassin’s Creed III will deliver breakthroughs in visual quality, character models and artificial intelligence.

“Assassin’s Creed III features the franchise’s most expansive setting so far, along with an exciting new hero and exponentially more gameplay”, comments Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot.

“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”.
