Highlights in the game, and in the book, include new interactive cityscapes, frozen winter landscapes, threats from the natural world, weather systems that affect gameplay, and a wholly new environment for any Assassin so far – all stunningly and historically-correctly recreated by the Ubisoft studio.
Senior Commissioning Editor Laura Price acquired the rights from Ubisoft. She said, “Assassin’s Creed is rightly considered one of the most visually exciting games, and the concept art for Assassin’s Creed III is no exception. The new era and the new assassin are incredibly exciting and the sheer beauty of the art is extraordinary. Assassin’s Creed III promises to be the biggest and best yet and we’re delighted to be involved.”PRE_ORDER: released on October 30, 2012 USD$19.77
