Today, Ubisoft announced that Assassin’s Creed III for PC will be available in North America on November 20, 2012, with a couple-day delay until the 23rd for those of you in the UK.
Anyone ordering for console can get it nearly a month earlier on October 30th, for the PS3 and Xbox 360. The game will also come out for Wii U from Nintendo once it launches.
The next entry in the popular Assassin's Creed franchise takes the game up a few hundred years to the American Revolutionary War. The protagonist is a half-English, half-Native American by the name of Ratohnhaké:ton but for convenience's sake he also goes by his English name, Connor.
The Assassin's Creed series has always been extremely rich in historical events and characters, and Assassins Creed III looks to be no different. Connor's relationship with George Washington will prove important to the story, and he will also encounter notable names from the era including Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, Charles Lee, Israel Putnam, and more over 30 years of his life.
