We are 28 days before we ignite the revolution on our consoles with Assassin’s Creed III. It has become a monster game according to the development team that they needed to separate the content in two discs for the Xbox 360 version. Alex Hutchinson, Creative Director on Assassin’s Creed III spoke to NowGamer and said:
“It’s two discs on 360 and one on PS3, you’d be surprised what blows the disc. Sound blows the disc, but also videos. What was scary for us was we blew the disc with no… there’s only like two videos in the game, the rest is in-game cut-scenes. We were like ‘we’re still blowing the disc? That’s terrifying.’ It’s by far the biggest game I’ve worked on.”
Also Jonathan Cooper, the Animation Director on Assassin’s Creed III had something to say about disc swapping:
“Don’t worry, there’s not going to be like, disc-swapping if you get to the end of chapter 3 and having to swap over – that’s not going to happen. We’ve separated it. Pressed on whether Assassin’s Creed 3 simply comprises a one-time disc-swap half-way through the game, Cooper added: “No, it’s not even that. We won’t talk about how it’s done… but don’t worry about it, you won’t be jumping back and forth.”
Assassin’s Creed III by now is looking to be a monster game and will ignite the revolution for Xbox 360 and PS3 (Pre-order now available including a version with a Season Pass) on October 30th,2012. The Wii U version releases as a launch title on November 18th,2012 and the PC version lands on November 23th,2012.
