Assassin’s Creed III Gets First Public Showing at PAX East

Posted on March 22, 2012 AT 11:45am

THE BUZZ: Ubisoft has announced its official line-up for PAX East, which includes the first public showing of Assassin’s Creed III.

The publisher will also be bringing Far Cry 3, Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Future Soldier and a number iOS titles.

An exclusive look at the first footage of Assassin’s Creed III in action will be shown in a fully enclosed theater at the Ubisoft booth during the event, and session attendees will also receive a special Assassin’s Creed III item.

On Friday tattoo artist Suze, will be offering fans a chance to get inked with Far Cry 3 inspired tribal tattoos, and on Saturday and Sunday mohawk stations will be available at the booth should you wish to get something a little less permanent.

At the booth fans will get a chance to play Far Cry 3, Mad Riders, Ghost Recon: Future Soldier, I Am Alive and Ghost Recon Online.

EGM’s TAKE: The first showing of Assassin’s Creed! Excited? We certainly are. Ubisoft has a fantastic line-up this year and is probably set to enjoy its most successful fiscal to date, spearheaded by Assassin’s Creed III. Far Cry 3 is shaping up to be another fantastic entry in the series, fixing a lot of the issues players had in the second game and offering more freedom, with a sense of purpose as opposed to just running around all over the place getting lost. Finally Ghost Recon: Future Soldier is set to jump into the giant hole left in the FPS landscape this time of the year, and with its co-op play and futuristic gadgets it should do well.

Matthew Bennett, Associate Editor

An ability to go many hours without sleep and a quick wit make him ideal for his role as associate editor at He often thinks back to the days when the very idea of this career seemed like nothing but an impossible dream.
