Any Info on PC Release?

#1 Posted by Colourful_Hippie (4420 posts) -

One thing's for sure and that is that I want to get the PC version of AC III but the only thing I've seen about its release date is November. Is there any other info on a specific date of when it's coming out?

@Colourful_Hippie: it is the 23rd of November in the UK (so 20th in the US) only Steam has not yet given a price or if they have a Limited/Deluxe edition: everywhere else it is not Steam enabled (unless stated) including the DVD version.

Hitman is on the US date and Far Cry the week after too :(

@SpartanHoplite: Isn't Far Cry early December?

@Genkkaku: oh sorry in the UK its the 30th, US is 4th so the one time the game is early here it has to be the worst time!

I'm creeped out by you having Bob Ross as an Avatar since I discovered Bob Ross the same week I started playing AC1 (In june 2012, I just finnished AC2).

The thing is, I think I adore Bob Ross.

@Killercombo: @SpartanHoplite: Oh you lucky people you.. In Aus its also the 4th, and currently that's my most anticipated game.. Hitman is a very very close second

Dammit! I was sorta hoping it'd be up for purchase on Steam at midnight tonight... Poo.

Gotta get busy with that.

Well it's his birthday today. So go paint some happy little trees.

@Snail: You wouldn't be missing out much at all if you just skipped it anyways.

As much as I'd love to wait for the PC release, there's no way I'll be playing AC3 when Hitman is out so I'll just settle for the Xbox version of this one.

Well, they (once again, in my case) sold one less copy of the game at full price by delaying the PC version... I'm glad Hitman gets released for all the platforms at the same time, it looks way more interesting to me anyway.

I'm kinda worried guys...I hope the PC version turns out right. A lot of time when the PC version gets delayed its tends not to be a good sign:(

@Jahbu: Arkham City was delayed but it's a great port and all of the past AC games on PC have been great ports besides the shit DRM.

I would normally agree but Ubisoft ALWAYS delay the AC games on PC, this is the least time we have had to wait versus the other games, which turned up months after.
