Assassin’s Creed III will be a sight to behold once gamers get their hands on the title in late October, stepping into the shoes of hooded maestro Connor.

So what kinda PC specifications do you need to play the game?


Windows XP users left in the dark.

Ubisoft have now released the minimum PC specifications for Assassin’s Creed III and announced along with, that the game will not support Windows XP to the dismay of many. A version for Windows 8 is said to be in development, but no official announcement has been made.

When not fighting crime, I dabble in the art of online journalism. Alright, maybe it's not as exciting as headbutting everyday felons like a modern Bruce Wayne, but I need something that doesn't involve bludgeoning something. Get my kicks playing on a fat 80gb PS3, really need an upgrade......and a shave.
