If you missed it, Ubisoft announced last week that there will most certainly be an Assassin’s Creed 3, likely released towards the end of the year.
I don’t normally just post trailers, but I think you’ll understand why I posted this one. Make sure you watch in fullscreen HD, if you can:
Assassin’s Creed games really do seem to get cooler and cooler with each iteration. I suspect they may one day become so cool that they form some kind of Coolness Black Hole, utterly destroying the universe.
Earlier this month, Ubisoft announced that the upcoming PC version of Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood will not feature the same DRM system as Assassin’s Creed II.
Yes, of course, this is a good thing – the old system was completely unfair, and drove away a lot of customers, losing many more sales than piracy alone would have done.
But let’s not be too hasty with the celebrations. After all, AC:B will still need to have some form of copy-protection – Ubisoft wouldn’t have it any other way. Can this new system really win back the hearts, minds and, most importantly, wallets of those who didn’t purchase ACII because of the DRM?
