THE BUZZ: Assassin’s Creed III will include more Desmond sections in the present day than any other game in the series.
“All I can say about Desmond’s story is you’re going to experience more Desmond than you’ve ever had before,” lead writer Matt Turner told CVG. “We’re spending more time on the present than we have in past games.”
“It’s a big part of our story and I don’t really want to give too many details away because I want people to experience what that is. But rest assured, you’re going to see a lot of Desmond. Moreso than in any past game,” he added.
EGM’s TAKE: With the 2012 doomsday catastrophe just weeks away it’s no wonder that Assassin’s Creed III will feature more present day sections, as Desmond fights to prevent the end of the world. Desmond’s sections have grown as the games have progressed. In the beginning it was simply walking around laboratories and now he’s leaping around construction sites and hidden temples. We can’t wait to see how his story will end.
