After many, many leaks, Ubisoft officially confirmed Assassin Creed 3's revolutionary America setting in yesterday's sensational trailer. However, they've also let slip a couple of interesting new details along with the announcement.
First off, Ubisoft has confirmed that Assassin's Creed 3 is also in development for the Wii U- which will of course release long after the October 31st launch date for PS3, PC and Xbox 360. It willl apparently have "twice the production values" of any previous Ubisoft title.
However, the Xbox Marketplace listing has also potentially revealed an interesting new wrinkle. Apparently Assassin's Creed 3 will feature Online Co-Op for between 2-4 players, which ought to be an interesting new angle for the traditionally competitive multiplayer suite. We'll bring you more as we hear it.
