Assassin’s Creed 3 roundup

On Tuesday the video game industry is expecting a massive financial shot in the arm when one of the best-selling games of the year is released. Sure, you could argue that calling it a best-seller before it is even released is a bit premature, but given the success of the series, given the results of the Assassin’s Creed games from last two years, and given that this is an entirely new game with a setting that will instantly appeal to the largest buying audience for this game – Americans – it’s a pretty safe bet that it will be in strong contention for the number two spot, behind the behemoth known as Call of Duty: Black Ops 2.

The anticipation and hype are already there, but we’ll have to wait a few more days until we can actually get our hands on the game. In the meantime we’ve collected all the AC3 news you need to properly prepare you for the Tuesday release.
