Stunning new gameplay previews, plus the first details on the WiiU version!
You might think that having formally unveiled Assassin's Creed III, Ubisoft would then take a step back with their marketing campaign until E3, yet we've now already got a few beautiful new screenshots (below) for the game and the first details on its WiiU counterpart. Apparently, the WiiU's tablet controller will store records on all of the characters you meet, accessible at any time, as well as allowing the player to control the Animus Eagle Vision camera using its motion sensors and to change weapons mid-battle using the touch screen. How well these new features will be implemented remains to be seen, but it all sounds pretty promising, and the Eagle Vision idea could easily be used in a similar way for Batman: Arkham City's Detective Mode as that game has been confirmed for release on WiiU too. Assassin's Creed III hits 360, PC and PS3 on October 30th, while the WiiU version will ship alongside the console this Winter.
