Considering the initial controversy surrounding the exclusivity status of Assassin's Creed, it's more than a bit amusing that Ubisoft had a mind for an extensive multiplatform release all along. Through the end of its fiscal third quarter, the publisher has sold more than 5 million combined units of the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 editions of the game and just recently released a Gameloft-developed Nintendo DS prequel spin-off to accompany its mobile version let out to prowl last year.
Today, Ubisoft confirmed that the PC version of its Montreal studio's parkour-inspired opus will take to the streets in March in North America and Europe. Titled Assassin's Creed: Director's Cut Edition, the PC version of the game will offer a few more opportunities for mayhem to make up for trailing its console counterparts. Though the publisher was mum on specific details, Ubisoft did say that the game will feature four additional missions exclusive to the PC version.
Assassin's Creed: Director's Cut Edition will retail for $49.99 and has been rated M for Mature. For a taste of the Third Century clandestine action, check out GameSpot's previous coverage and review of the console editions.
