Assassin’s Creed III Breaks Pre-Order Records
Ubisoft has announced that Assassin’s Creed III is the most pre-ordered game in the company’s history. Pre-orders of Assassin’s Creed III already have more than doubled those of last year’s Assassin’s Creed Revelations, Ubisoft’s previous pre-order record holder.
With more than 40 awards won since its announcement, Assassin’s Creed III has had a development cycle of more than three years and twice the production capacity of any previous Ubisoft game. Assassin’s Creed III will be available on October 31 on PS3 and Xbox 360 and on November 22 on Windows PC.
Assassin’s Creed III is the next installment in the Assassin’s Creed franchise, which has already sold more than 40 million copies worldwide. Players will step into the boots of a new hero, Connor. Set during the American Revolution in the late 18th century the Assassin will battle for liberty against ruthless tyranny in the most stylised and fluid combat experiences in the franchise to date.
“Assassin’s Creed III is one of the most anticipated games of the year, and this impressive pre-order mark is just a hint of the game’s potential” said Geoffroy Sardin, chief EMEA sales and marketing officer at Ubisoft. “When players discover the new features, historical period, characters and gaming experience that the development team has worked so hard to create, we’re confident that they will agree that this is the biggest, best Assassin’s Creed game yet.”
