New AC3:L story trailer...wow this game just got a lot more interesting.

Nice, it looks like Connor will be part of the story:D

Apperently if you own AC3 on PS3 you'll be able to play as Connor in a mission for AC3:L.

Oh and here is the link from YouTube, so you don't have to use Kotaku's crappy video player http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NIEZqTe2ROA&feature=g-all-c

There's a nice Assassin's Creed sale at Gamersgate right now, if anyone is still catching up like me. You can get 1, 2, or Brotherhood for $5, and Revelations for $12.

http://www.gamersgate.com/assassinscreed

They don't show the PC version of AC 2 there, you have to search for it.

[QUOTE="JohnnyCageMK"]Considering how much these games sell there's never much hype behind them.PhazonBlazer

Just wait till it scores a 10/10 here and wins GOTY :P

9.5 here, 9.6-10 on IGN, 94+ on Metacritic

I preorderd mine today, it was nice they gave me a keychain, a coin and a steelcase at EB Games. Not bad for putting some money down. I'm sure this game will sell over 5 million easy.

charizard1605

5 million is easy, especially since the lowest selling game in the series so far did 7 million in three months...

vg chartz says the highest selling was AC1 on the 360 and it sold 5 mil. where you getting your info from?

and inbefore LOL vg chartz.

Well my local Target and Walmart still have tons of copies so its fair to say shipped not sold. AC is not as big as Halo and COD. It probably won't even sell more than Fifa 13 or NBA 2K13 (2K11 sold over 5 mil and 2k13 is selling twice as fast).

IGN's Making of Assassin's Creed III Part 4

I can safely say that IGN will be giving this game at least a 9.5, maybe even a 10.

That looks great, made my hype go up a little :P

12 days left, ah I hate waiting.

Revelations, I believe.

They're also spending a lot more money on marketing for AC III than they are for past AC games.

AC III broke the record for most pre orders in the AC series back in june, must be a lot more now.

I expect to see ~3 million sold in first week.

3 million + is like Halo/Call of Duty level pre-orders. Hard to believe it's so damn popular.

No chance Revelations sold anywhere near 7 mil. That game has been on sale all the time for $20 since a couple weeks after it came out. BB has even tried getting rid of it at $10. AC doesn't sell as much as they are claiming.

Fvck. I saw it on GAF a few hours ago. It involved pressing a few buttons on the controller to make Connor start levitating and flapping his arms like a bird. He was able to attack guards and just seemlessly fly away. The players were drunk at the same time which made it even funnier. :lol:

I believe it's only the Vita version, but I'm not 100% sure.

#176 Posted by padaporra (3430 posts) -

I hope Desmond's part in this game are better than they were in Revelations. It's easy to forget he is such a huge part is this series... I thought they did a great job with him in AC2, and Brotherhood.
.
Also, do you guys think Aveline is his ancestor too?

Assassin's Creed III Cinematic Commercial

Also with the game drawing ever closer to releasing please do not spoil anything if the game is leaked.

And the picture of Desmond from my previous post has been completely revealed.

The more I see info/footage of AC3 the more I get hyped for it.

By February, Revelations had sold 7 million worldwide. We're looking at Halo/Call of Duty calibre popularity here.

Muskets are inaccurate, take awhile to reload, they would use their bayonets in close quarters anyways, and it's a video game :o

#186 Posted by WTA2k5 (3997 posts) -

As much as I'm excited for this game (and Liberation), I really dislike the way it's marketed. Ubisoft makes so much of an effort to get a piece of media out each day that they're practically spoiling everything. It'd be truly shocking if this game has many surprises left by the time it comes out.

WTA2k5

They claim that they still have alot of surprises left, we still really don't know that much about Desmond.

#188 Posted by padaporra (3430 posts) -

After seeing Desmond visions, I'm wondering if the roman gods will return.

#189 Posted by UnrealLegend (5888 posts) -

I think that trailer will be the opening of the game. It seems very opening-ish.

#190 Posted by kozzy1234 (35266 posts) -

Not a big fan of this series to be honest. Will probably rent it instead of buy it. Only AC game I really enjoyed was Brotherhood.

I bet it gets a 9/10 at gamespot

#191 Posted by IPWNDU2 (2535 posts) -

I need to play brotherhood atleast. I have it sitting around here somewhere. I only put about an hour into it, but AC2 was great.

#192 Posted by PhazonBlazer (11922 posts) -

#193 Posted by TheDidact (3981 posts) -

PhazonBlazer
For me it's 34 until Black Friday. Last year I got Revelations for $34.99 and the year before, I got Brotherhood for $39.99. I'm trying to be more careful about my gaming budget. The only retail games I've bought this year were Mass Effect 3 and Borderlands 2, the former because I love the series and had a good amount of money on me, and the latter because I had a bunch of friends who were getting it and I had nothing else to play. :lol: I'll be buying Halo 4 and Black Ops at release though, because they won't drop in price for a while. Other games like AC3, Dishonored, and maybe PS Allstars I'll be picking up on Black Friday.

I wish they had a better signature edition though, something like the one they had with Revelations.

I don't think so, unless you're able to sail there in the naval sections.

I'll pick this up next month on black friday since it no doubt will be on sale for around 30-40 then
