Assassin’s Creed III is just one month away and its achievement list has been revealed as is customary on Xbox360Achievements.org.
Hunt achievements and Redcoats in the highly anticipated Revolutionary War setting. PlayStation 3 owners can pretend the Gamescore earned are trophies as it’ll be the same list.

Ubisoft has delayed the PC version of Assassin’s Creed III to November 20, three weeks after the console versions.
We’ve decided to all strap on our most horrified face and synchronize a collective gasp here at the addicted-gamer’s (hypothetical) office, but I don’t think we’re fooling anyone. Because there’s been four Assassin’s Creed games and every single one of them arrived late to PC, so this is kind of like tradition.
While Ubisoft previously denied there’d be a delay, we knew deep down, didn’t we?
Ubisoft had a suprisingly strong showing at E3 this year. They had crowds buzzing about next generation visuals with Watch Dogs and they continued to please with Assassin’s Creed III, a game that seems to be rubbing everyone the right way. Below you’ll find the same gameplay footage that was shown at E3, but this time creative director Alexander Hutchinson lays down some commentary. Give it a look.
Perhaps that’s a bit presumptuous, that in these new leaked screens (yes, more leaked screens) the deer is in any danger at all. But, really, do you think the assassin has taken to the woods to admire the wildlife? To become one with nature? Or maybe, but far less likely, build a snow man? No. And in the last shot – I don’t think he’s approaching quietly, stalking slowly, doing his best to go unnoticed in the snow by hunkering down, to coddle and make friends. Run Bambi! Run!

Assassin’s Creed III is set to unleash on Colonial America, but if you expect to be running around as an OSS operative, a ninja, or an Egyptian…ninja, think again. Ubisoft’s Alex Hutchinson stated in a recent OXM interview that, “People on the internet suggest the most boring settings.” He also went on to say, “The three most wanted are WWII, feudal Japan and Egypt. They’re kind of the three worst settings for an AC game.”
He apparently has a hard on for India though.”Assassin’s Creed 3 writer Corey May really wants to do India, ” says Hutchinson “I would too. I’d really love to do the Raj.”

Fans of the undeniably successful Assassin’s Creed franchise have always craved for more playable segments with one of the series’ main protagonists, Desmond Miles. Apparently Ubisoft is aware of this and promises more playable portions with game’s present day hero in the upcoming AC III. Ubisoft had the following to say in an interview with CVG:
“All I can say about Desmond’s story is you’re going to experience more Desmond than you’ve ever had before. We’re spending more time on the present than we have in past games. It’s a big part of our story and I don’t really want to give too many details away because I want people to experience what that is. But rest assured, you’re going to see a lot of Desmond. More so than in any past game.”
Assassin’s Creed 3 will be available on October 30, 2012 for the PS3, Xbox 360, and PC. A Wii U version in the works as well.

Assassin’s Creed III isn’t even out yet and news on the next installment is already being reported. Ubisoft Producer, Francois Pelland, recently told a UK newspaper called the Metro, that the next Assassin’s Creed title may not continue to follow a chronological timeline. This would mean that the events in the next game of the series could take place well before AC III. Here’s a direct quote of what he had to say:
“It’s a question we’ve been getting a lot. It’s not a moving forward thing, it’s all based on lineage and on DNA and therefore it has nothing to do with time. The next game could easily go backwards as much as forward, no problem.”

A clue from an Ubisoft game designer’s Twitter account revealed what studio within the company is working on the multiplayer for Assassins Creed III. Tim Browne updated the personal description of himself to say “Lead Game Designer on Assassin’s Creed 3 Multiplayer @Ubisoft – Annecy.”
Tim Browne recently joined Ubisoft, and has previous multiplayer experience from working on Codemaster’s Operation Flashpoint: Red River. The studio Ubisoft Annecy has worked on the multiplayer for the previous Assassin’s Creed games, and is also known for doing the multiplayer in Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory. It’s clear that they have a pedigree, and have experience working with the series and with multiplayer. It is possible that other developers will be announced to be working on the multiplayer because last year’s Assassins Creed: Revelations had multiple studios contributing to its development.
