PC gamers will have to wait an extra month to get their hands on Assassin's Creed 3. Ubisoft revealed today that they'll launch the sandbox action game on the PC in the last days of November.
AC3 will arrive in the UK on November 23rd. That's a Friday, the usual day of the week that new games are released in Europe. North American releases are generally scheduled for Tuesday, so we can probably expect the PC AC3 to arrive here on November 20th.
The Xbox 360 and PS3 versions of Assassin's Creed 3 are scheduled for a late October launch. The month delay for the PC should not be suprising at this point. Ubisoft does this regularly with its top releases. It's presumably done out of piracy concerns. Ubisoft has indicated they might ease off on DRM with PC games though so maybe these arbitrary delays will be gone someday too.
In Assassin's Creed 3, players experience the Revolutionary War first-hand. They control Connor, a half-Native American who becomes part of the secretive order known as the Assassins. He quickly becomes embroiled in the Assassins' centuries-old conflict with another secret society, the Templars. Connor will have to kill colonists and redcoats alike in his covert war against the Templars.
Ubisoft's hasn't talked much about the PC version specifically, save to say that you should play it with a controller. The features of that version will probably be the same as their console counterparts.
Update: Ubisoft has confirmed that November 20th is indeed the North American release date for the PC version.
