Assassin’s Creed III to hit Aussie shelves on Halloween

The newest addition to the series will be the largest project undertaken by Ubisoft.

Assassin’s Creed III will be released in Australia on October 31.

The stealth action-adventure game will be the largest project undertaken by publisher, Ubisoft. It is being developed by Ubisoft Montreal.

Unlike the previous games in the series, Assassin’s Creed III is set closer to modern history with the 18th century American Revolution as the new open-world playground. While the setting is novel to the series, the ancient war between the Assassins and Templars rages on.

Players will assume a new character, Ratohnhaké:ton (codename Connor), who is of Native American and English descent.

The game will be available on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Windows-based PC, and the Wii U.

Assassin’s Creed III is powered by a new game engine, Ubisoft-AnvilNext, which will bring “breakthroughs in visual quality, character models and artificial intelligence”, according to Ubisoft.

With 2K Games’ BioShock Infinite also due out that month, October is set to be a busy period for gamers.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
