Looks legit !!!
Oh god. Can't wait for this. It'll be brilliant per usual
Just to wet your appetite then mate
Havent played Assassins Creed since 2 and this genuinely has me very excited. Not interested in the side releases thy've done, i want a Full on Sequel and this is going to be amazing.
Exact same as me. Ezio was cool and fixed everything about AC1 but I wasn't interested in the spin offs. This will be brilliant. It's going to be a long wait
I can't wait for this game seriously loved ACII
ACII was AWESOME. I spent my entire christmas day and boxing day platinuming it lol. I was so excited for AC1 but it was awful and repetitive. ACII was everything I wanted and more. This looks brilliant! Taking a hatchet to British peoples face! DOES IT GET ANY BETTER?!?!?! Wee jokes
Am I being stupid? But why is it called ACIII when its the fifth game?
BrotherHood and Revelations were just side games and not full sequels.
Beat me too it
Does this explain why they were so short and felt more like add-ons with no proper endings and a waste of £40?
Brotherhood took me about 20-30 hours to finish
Not played Revelations yet so can't comment.
Both took me about 10 hours, but that was the main "missions" only and side missions when I found them. I didn't go out of my way to locate them all but once the main credits roll, the incentive to go back and finish them disappears.
In ACII everything was tied in together so much better and by the time the credits rolled virtually everything had been completed anyway, baring a few bits to go back and finish off.
I tend to (if enjoying a game)look at the trophies and get as much of those done as possible (except online trophies) so yeah, a lot of the game time would have been doing side missions, earning money to buy all weapons etc.
I always find it strange when people say they only play the "main missions" and cant be bothered with the side missions. The game has been constructed to include side missions and ive paid to play the game so I always do everything in the game to get the full experience and my moneys worth.
For me only Revelations felt a little short and that something was missing (something thats even been admitted by ubisoft) however the one thing that I did like about it was...
the side mission where we discovered Desmonds back story
lol some guy is suing ubisoft because he claims that they copied his storey so the release may be delayed cuz of this
yeah but this was about 6 week ago now ^^, people are always trying to sue someone, I guess his book failed so he mad.
That trailer reminded me of the Mel Gibson film The Patriot!
The Connor story trailer looks really good, double weapon combat looks dynamic and brutal. I can't wait for this now.
Pre ordered,cant wait.
Shopto says shipped looking forward to this
Has anyone ordered from Tesco's before? I've pre-ordered the Join or Die edition with exclusive tshirt but can't see my order as they have switched it from Tesco Entertainment to Tesco Direct. What are they like for deliveries, do they ship on the release date or a few days before?
An email says my order is still vaild but I would have to ring customer service to check. I haven't bought a full priced game for ages but thought I would get this as I loved the others in the series.
You might get it for release, you might get it a few days later, you might get it a week later, roll a dice is the answer, IMO
Well i ordered a blu ray off them a few days before receiving that email and its still not come. (ordered 17th)
Still on the fence about this. I know ACII has a lot of fans but i thought it was a bit mediocre. I actually couldnt wait to finish the game as for me it got extremely repetitive. Definitely one of those games where i just dont get the hype.
I have been impressed with what ive seen so far though from the gameplay footage.
Gonna wait until I get my new iMac in December. Love Assassins Creed but the console versions always have screen tearing and I'd love to play it as good as it could possibly look!
Looks a stunning game though, can't wait to just go exploring
I thought ACII was the best. I think they made a mistake having the offshoots, especially Revelations which I got bored with very quickly.
It's probably too late now to cancel my order with Tesco as I can't view the order online.
be aware if you plan on getting this there is a major day one patch you will need, I feel sorry for those that dont have internet access how the hell are they going to be able to play such a buggy mess and how this got passed QA i do not know it's all well and good saying there is a patch but that shouldn't have to be the case.
here is the list of what the patch will fix it's a long one

Mission "EXECUTION IS EVERYTHING", fixed a bug where the mission would not continue if the NPCs you are eavesdropping react to a dead body
Mission "THE BRADDOCK EXPEDITION" - Mission would not continue if the player kills all enemies in the camp, killing the required target last, without triggering open conflict

Fort Monmouth and Fort Division - Quest objectives would fail too early without the fort resetting properly
New York delivery mission - Game asked for a different item (deer heart) than what was showed to the player (venison)
New York Liberation Missions - Possible that the game would wrongly display that 2 of the districts were completely liberated when it's not the case yet
Just had an email from Tesco, They cancelled my order for the Join or Die edition but the good news is as a gesture of goodwill they are going to send the standard edition for free. As i was originally going to order the standard edition originally this is great news.
Iv being playing this for most of the day, its very good, some silly bugs like floating guns and no animation when speaking but other than that im loving it, loads of action, great graphics aswell. Great story so far.
