March 30th, 2012 by bash Comments

Assassin’s Creed 3 is breaking pre-order records in the US, Ubisoft have said.

The publisher revealed that in the three weeks since the game’s pre-order campaign kicked off, it has already exceeded the total US pre-order numbers of Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood, and has topped 10 times the pre-orders Assassin’s Creed: Revelations attracted in a comparable time frame.

Assassin’s Creed III isn’t set to launch until October 30 in North America however Ubisoft said it would have the largest launch in the publisher’s history and noted it will have been in development for three years.

Set during the American Revolution, Assassin’s Creed III features a new protagonist with a mixed Native America-English heritage.

Hi all. I'm Bash and love anything and everything to do with Star Wars. Although I've watched hundreds of movies, read dozens of books and played numerous computer games from other genres and franchises since, nothing has come close to seeing George Lucas' epic for the very first time. I hope you all like the site and come back often.
