Ubisoft wants gamers to play the PC version of Assassin's Creed III not with a mouse-and-keyboard setup, but with a controller. Speaking to GameSpy, Assassin's Creed III creative director Alex Hutchinson remarked that the optimal PC experience will be through a controller input.

"We're definitely supporting PC, we love PC, but I think it'll be PC with a controller," he said. "I don't see us investing hugely in a mouse and keyboard setup. I think if you want to play on PC and you want to play Assassin's Creed, you have a controller."

Assassin's Creed III is due out in North America for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii U, and PC on October 30, with a European debut scheduled for Halloween. The game is set during the Revolutionary War in Colonial America, with players taking on the role of Native American assassin Connor.
