It's guaranteed to be one of the biggest games of 2012 and ever since being unveiled, Assassin's Creed III has been a hot topic of conversation.
That's the reason why the game is breaking pre-order records. According to Ubisoft's early numbers , in the three weeks since the pre-order campaign started, ACIII has already exceeded the total number of US pre-orders for Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood . As for the recent Revelations , ACIII has already taken in three times the number of pre-orders in that same three-week time frame.
By the way, if you are one of the many who put your deposit on this promising game, you'll grab a special steelbook package featuring art by Alex Ross. Ubisoft predicts that by the time E3 comes up in June, ACIII will have dispatched Revelations as the most pre-ordered game in the publisher's history (again, we're only referring to the US). Lastly, Ubisoft senior vice president of sales and marketing Tony Key said the game in question "would enjoy the biggest marketing commitment in company history." Yep, expect a very big push…
Assassin's Creed III is slated to hit on October 30.
