PC port of stabbing sim to follow just one month behind console versions

Ubisoft has finally come clean with a solid release date for Assassin’s Creed III on PC – November 20 in the US, and November 23 elsewhere. Although the console versions have been confirmed for late October for some time now, until recently the publisher gave a vague “before the end of the year” release window for the PC version; Ubisoft has developed a bit of a reputation for pushing back PC releases so in that context just under a month’s delay from the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 release could be considered quite a good result. The latest entry in the series takes closes the current story arc led by meta-protagonist Desmond, and takes players to the American Revolution. It’s got a whole grab bag of new features like forest traversal and naval battles along with new and interesting ways to stab people.
