Ubisoft have intriguingly announced that Assassin's Creed IV will release earlier than expected. Instead of a November 1st launch, the anticipated swashbuckling simulator will release on October 29th worldwide for PS3 and Xbox 360. PC and next-gen versions follow in November.
It's tempting to suggest that Ubisoft wanted to get Assassin's Creed IV out of Battlefield 4's firing line, which is also scheduled for November 1st. However, since Battlefield 4 also rolls out Stateside on October 29th, there must be more to it. Either way, we'll get to play it a few days early. Have a new trailer to celebrate!
