I know we get games late but 30th is beyond late. I wouldn't have believed that. 20th would have been the latest i would have believed no doubt.

Good find!

I love the fact that we will be able to turn off the HUD.

Quite frequently games come out here 2-3 weeks after the USA. Madden 08 for ps3 came out two months after for example, while only two weeks for 360.

I just went up to game and they havent heard anything of a 15th release date. But they might not have checked yet.

Hopefully it is the 15th or i may cry http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif ... jk

I was a bit skeptical of vurp.com at first because they had the PC release date as the 15th as well, but that has since been removed.

Hopefully its game that has been mistaken and not vurp!

exactly what I was thinking, but the sudden feeling of anger and frustration kinda clouded my thoughts I guess... I'm just glad it's coming the same date as everyone else http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

I sure am hoping. I wasnt sure if i was going to be able to cope with 17 extra days of waiting.

It would be nice to hear something official from Ubisoft to make it sealed though.

Hopefully it is the 15th, if GAME is getting it on the 30th, i'll get my refund and buy it from somewhere else.

Awesome...well keep in touch.


http://www.xboxworld.com.au/news/assassins-creed-goes-gold.htm

Hopefully that further validates the 15th release date. I cant see Africa getting AC before us.

I'm assuming that GAME will update soon too.

The fact that you can turn the Hud off will incourage a lot of players back to the game. Personally I don't mind, I will just have to play and see which I prefer.

i like the article thanks, good find http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

iam a bit worried they (once again) said nothing about the PC version...

but all the rest made me optimistic...

i only hope i can use a cheat, after i finish the game, that the guards CAN and WILL call for back up to make my game expirience even better the next time around...

so... hope to see that...

Awesome find! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

I did actually know some of the stuff there.

One of the things that concerns me is the fact that 'flags = saves'... What if you've just escaped from an assassination, and you want to save your game, but you can't find a flag? http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

So we have come to the conclusion that there won't be any diffuculty levels, but as the game became impossible with guards running for help, please make this DLC as said earlier, would be so cool for the second run trough the game. and also, you kinda owe it to us PS3 owners that will not even get in-game achievements. You've got the code so, why not? http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Well now I now I was rank 6 during the demo in Montreal because after I killed Montferrat, I returned to Masyaf and the dodge tutorial was available (rank 7). I also wonder how many ranks there are total since Patrice said that at most Altair can carry 15 knives (rank 9).

**For Aussie Gamers**

More confirmation about the AUS release date!

Dated: Assassin's Creed

Assassin's Creed has gone gold! Ubisoft has announced a release date of November 15 for the PS3 and 360 versions of the game, putting us a full day ahead of Europe.

Producer Jade Raymond took the opportunity to stress the contribution her team made to realising her vision. "We've been working very hard for nearly four years to make Assassin's Creed a reality and now there is a confirmed date when players will get to experience the results of our efforts. This is a huge event for the team. Our biggest reward will be everyone having a lot of good solid fun."

Assassin's Creed puts the player in the medieval hooded top of Altair, an expert assassin on a mission to end the Third Crusade by any means necessary. The accessible control scheme makes free running' a breeze, allowing the player to scamper over rooftops with gay abandon. Vast urban environments, teeming crowds, vitriolic exposition, and very nice horse animations also rank among the game's strengths.

Assassin's Creed will eventually be available on PC, too.
