Ubisoft® has announced that Assassin’s Creed® III is now available for Windows PC. Assassin’s Creed III takes gamers on a journey from the vibrant cities of Colonial America, across the expansive and perilous frontier to the stormy seas and blood-soaked battlefields. The game was developed by Ubisoft Montreal in collaboration with six other Ubisoft studios, including the Ubisoft Kiev studio on the PC version.
The latest offerings from the Assassin’s Creed universe give gamers two different ways to experience the games and 18th century America. Assassin’s Creed III (Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii U, Windows PC), the first game to take advantage of the new Ubisoft-AnvilNext game engine, is set against the backdrop of the American Revolution in the late 18th century and introduces a new hero, Ratonhnhaké:ton, of Native American and English heritage. Adopting the name Connor, he
