Assassin's Creed 3 trailer tells Desmond's story

Creative director thinks players will love AC3's "terrific" Desmond pay-off

Ubisoft has released a new Assassin's Creed 3 trailer focussing on Desmond, the series' 21 century protagonist.

Even if you're still not a fan of Desmond, who has appeared in every game to date, AC3 creative director Alex Hutchinson thinks you'll be very happy with how his story's tied up.

"The story of Assassin's Creed, AC II, Brotherhood and Revelations was to build Desmond up," Hutchinson recently told Edge. "He's this guy who's a bit of a nobody when it starts out, and gets new abilities through reliving the lives of his ancestors.

"So we've built this guy up over the course of the games, and I really believe that we can pay that off, and in retrospect he'll be terrific. I don't think anyone really liked Luke Skywalker in [Star Wars] A New Hope, but by the end of his character arc, this journey that he goes through, makes him amazing."

Ubisoft has confirmed an Assassin's Creed 3 release date of October 30 on PS3 and Xbox 360, with a PC release to follow on November 23. A Wii U version will be available at the console's launch.
