Assassin's Creed prowling in November

Ubisoft confirms anticipated acrobatic action game for release worldwide later this year in regular and special editions.

As one might expect given the subject matter, Assassin's Creed has been shrouded in secrecy. From which platforms the title would appear on to its gameplay, Ubisoft has been slowly trickling out bits of information for more than a year now.

However, the latest bit of information suggests the veil of secrecy will soon be pulled away. Ubisoft has confirmed that Assassin's Creed will launch worldwide on the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC this November. The game will arrive on store shelves in two packages: a standard edition that will fetch $59.99, and a limited edition $69.99 package.

Set in 1191 AD at the height of the Third Crusade for the Holy Land, Assassin's Creed puts players in the silent shoes of Altair and gives them the opportunity "to shape events during this pivotal moment in history." Altair is tied to a group of ruthless assassins whose plan is to bring an end to the bitter struggle by striking out at both warring parties.

For thouse of you who think $59.99 is a lot of money. Consider this: In Denmark we have to pay $103.85 pr game! All bacause the government is putting huge amount of taxes on the electronic entertainment business! So think again if you think your wallet is under pressure :) Can't wait for this game either, and I'll gladly pay $113.99 for the limited edition.

I was never into GTA so I'll have enough time between the release of Halo 3 and this game. I don't think Mass Effect will release before Halo so December would be a good time so that it doesn't conflict with this game.

Hey vegetaattack15, how does this game justify the price of PS3 when the same exact game is being released on a more affordable system? Thats like eating at an expensive restraunt and saying the price is justified because they had forks

This game needs a great story along with great gameplay.. They have said that the assassination is not the hard part, the escaping part is.. If this game gets a sci-fi plot that alone would ruin the whole game --_--

What is with all the Limited Editions on games? I was hoping for this sooner but it will make my November better considering TFU is no longer in there.

Awesome i'm gonna get the Special Edition like always, over here its the same price alls you have to do is preorder and put in a deposit

I'm surprised there's no mention as to what you get with the limited edition. Hope it's a little more than some Concept Art.

Bear-Max Has a very good point. I'm not sure this game will be that great. I am looking forward to it, but am skeptical. I've seen a possible game play video on this site, but I'm not sure if it was actual footage or just a video. I remember a lady talking through it telling what was going on. If that was actual gameplay footage, it looked very promising.

I don't get the hype. Yes it does look cool but we've seen no gameplay. For all we know it could play like crap... And to be honest I'm expecting either that or a Prince of Persia clone. I love PoP (well Sands of Time anyway...) but I don't really NEED to play it with some medieval paint over the top. I hope I'm wrong, but I'm expecting to be disappointed.

A premium next-gen project developed by Ubisoft's best in-house team, and it's all new IP. I'm very much looking forward to it. You'd be mad not to.

snake3rules

limited edition for a brand new game is a bit of an over-stretch for a hitman in period clothes. And frankly, all this hype is starting to make me less interested-- Its the release of a game (that no one's played yet, no less), not some life-altering experience.

Delayed again? Ah, well. At least we're getting it. This game is going to set a new standard for Next Gen, I'd have to say. Beautiful graphics, innovative and new gameplay, and just one of the coolest concepts set in my favorite time period. Dayum. Assassin's Creed FTW.
