Facebook forum reveals Assassin's Creed features

24 Aug 2012

A Ubisoft representative has revealed some of the finer details of Assassin’s Creed 3, including gameplay time and potential sequels.

Creative director Alex Hutchison replied to various questions put to him via the company’s Facebook page in a particularly cool bit of fan interaction.

He says that the 'game is more than 30 hours long'; we can only assume this means the single-player campaign, which is fairly lengthy.

Hutchison also debunked the myth the game would not support keyboard controls on the PC, adding that all available control schemes will be supported.

Two new promo videos for the highly-anticipated game were also released today, one of which is the behind-the-scenes video of the other – confused? Me too. Check them both out here and here

Both videos are suitably epic, but as ever the really interesting thing about the Assassin’s Creed series is the way it mixes historical settings with kick-ass action and murders and stuff; the American Revolution setting looks better with every new trailer.

On top of gameplay length, Hutchison also hinted that this would not be the last game in the series, however it does pretty much confirm that this will be the last we see of Desmond Miles.

“We want to work more on concluding the story lines to make room for new stories…it also has the advantage of giving closure on some long running plot lines.”

Long running plot lines sounds a lot like Miles to me, who has been present in every main episode in the series so far – it has already been revealed that his role in Assassin’s Creed 3 will be preventing the 2012 apocalypse, and that his story will reach a conclusion by the end of the game.

Take a look at the two latest videos and let us hear your feedback in the comments below.
