Assassins Creed 3 Officially Announced And Far Cry 3 Set For Release On September 7th

Ubisoft yesterday gave an update on the future of two of their biggest upcoming titles by confirming their release dates – the long rumoured Assassins Creed 3 will be released on October 30th, and Far Cry 3 will be hitting stores on September 7th.

20 – Need For Speed: The Run – 15th November

Once upon a time, Need For Speed was the undisputed king of the Christmas sales list; the two Underground games and the fantastic Most Wanted dominated their respective years, but then the series took a turn for the worse with Carbon, before ProStreet (which I had completely forgotten existed) and Underground performed poorly. Criterion’s reboot last year, Hot Pursuit, was a welcome return to form, and now we have The Run, the first game in the series to include on foot segments. Hopefully it will continue Criterion’s good work. Continue reading Dazcooke’s Top 20 Most Anticipated Games For Winter 2011
