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.
