Assassin’s Creed III to be a Great Starting Point for Newcomers to Join the Franchise

Ubisoft is mixing up the Assassin’s Creed formula (finally) by taking its third proper installment in the series to the time of the American Revolution. If you weren’t interested in the prior entries, but the new setting has piqued your interest, then now might be a good time to join the series.

Fortunately, you won’t have to trudge through the four prior entries just to have a clue as to what is going on in Assassin’s Creed III. Ubisoft has assured gamers that this new title will serve as a great entry point for gamers new to the franchise. Speaking to MCV, the studio’s UK managing director Rob Cooper explained:

This is a great time for gamers to join the adventure. There’s a huge will from Ubisoft to bring more gamers into this universe. Assassin’s Creed III is the biggest and most ambitious launch in Ubisoft’s history so we absolutely believe this game will continue to grow the franchise.

This is a huge investment for us and we’re extremely confident that together, all these factors will put us in pole position to compete against the other titles this Xmas.

Look for Assassin’s Creed III in stores worldwide this October 31st, for PS3, 360, PC and Wii U .
