IIRC this was the rumored Scorpio release date too, correct?

Given that it looks like MS has marketing rights to this game, I'd say that's pretty spot on.

The 8236982346890 edition nonsense just means I won't be buying without a substantial discount.

Good stuff, but I'm expecting the PC version to be arbitrarily pushed back to mid-November. Feel free to prove me wrong, Ubi. ;)

The GI article makes this game look super interesting...

  • You can ride a camel.
  • You can dive underwater.
  • Loot system with rare/epic/legendary weapons.
  • RPG leveling system inspired by FFX.
  • A focus on tomb-raiding with 20 tombs to explore with puzzles and all. That includes pyramids, tombs, and temples.
  • Eco system with animals interacting and attacking each other.
  • You have a shield this time around. You can deflect arrows by it then reuse them.

Can't wait to see more of it.

I was about to call BS on this for a game being released on a Friday, but apparently Syndicate also was on a Friday too... Still, I'll remain skeptic on this until we get official confirmation next week.

Animal ecosystems always end up disappointing in games because it's a simple attack or flight system. It never looks or feel alive. Everything else sounds ace though.

Shit, I haven't played an AC game since Black Flag but assuming they don't drop a big turd at their E3 presentation Monday, I'll definitely be getting this. The setting is just too intriguing.

What makes it look interesting though? To me it sounds like Rise of the Tomb Raider set in Egypt and I loathed RotTR. Do you really expect the tombs to have any real depth? I bet Assassin's Vision or whatever they call it in AC Universe is there to help everybody out at all times. Could you not dive underwater in previous AC's? If it's a first for this series that's fine, but what makes it so special when there's a million other games that do that as well? Are they actually gonna do something worthwhile with underwater swimming? I'm sorry if I sounds like a Debby Downer and I don't mean to single you out or anything, but I fail to see how these bullet-points are anything special at all. Hell, even the title of the game is the most boring, generic thing ever. What's next, Assassin's Creed Chronicles? Oh wait...

That does sound very interesting.

October is generally packed so you're bound to have a game or two that lines up with it. I doubt publishers are shifting their massive multiplatform games around to align with it. If anything Microsoft likely knows the fall schedule and will strategically launch it near a bunch of high profile games that look and run great on it.
