Assassin’s Creed III to be released with bugs; Erudito credits for sale, review scores 10/10!

 

Ubisoft releases the latest edition of Assassin’s Creed albeit with some bugs in the system which requires a patch on first day. But gamers can satisfy themselves with a high quality product which can deliver the goods…

Fall 2012 is beginning with a bang. There is only a day left for the release of the Ubisoft’s latest ‘Assassin’s Creed III’ which would be garnering a lot of votes this season. The game has already gained the top grades in its review by Xbox 360 Magazine (Italy). The story of the latest assassin, Connor takes place during the American Revolution. Now besides the usual settings of the medieval era, it also features a unique and beautiful scenario of dockyards since Navy was an integral part of the times.

The review gives due credit to the naval battles terming it as one of the most beautiful sequences of all time. It also appreciates the combat systems and extraordinary visual and graphical effects witnessed within the game, terming it as a ‘masterpiece’ in its experience. It also states that the game will remain high on the list of gamer preferences for a long duration. The game will see Connor, a native Indian with British lineage battling adversaries amongst bayonets, cannons and knives during the civil war. Besides the interesting combat options which involve a wide variety of martial arts and parkour moves, gamers will also have their brush with history including stalwarts like Benjamin Franklin along with other heroes from the era.

Ubisoft has meanwhile goofed up on its part, releasing a defective version of the game this time around. Gamers would be receiving games which will require a day 1 patch to play it uninterrupted. The game which is being tried out by gamers is being released with the bug which needs a repair first hand. The gaming company has accepted that the bugs are similar in nature to the ones which were part of the previous editions, it still remains a surprise that the game’s developers missed out on this detail till the last minute. The game play details were leaked online before but it is better to go for the real product although not many spoilers in the game play footage for now. The bugs have not disturbed the game’s popularity as is evident from the game’s top notch reviews.

On the other hand, ‘Meristation’, a Spanish enterprise has given it a score of 8.5/10 but whether this minor disparity will bother gamers is irrelevant for now. Also, the Italian magazine terms it as one of the best games of this generation but it  would be facing its competition in the coming two weeks when Halo 4 and Call of Duty: Black Ops II would be battling it out on consoles as well.

There is also news that gamers can purchase ‘Erudito Credits’ which can unlock a variety of game items in spite of the gaming level. Now, gamers can purchase them directly but can win them across the levels as well. Going by the first round of reviews, the game should maintain the tempo for this season which is going to be one of the most remarkable years for gaming.

Pre-order Perks for Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 and Assassin’s Creed 3; New Revelations in Stores!

The gaming season is beginning as the big names of Fall 2012 come out with their own set of perks to boost up their sales. The latest to join the league is Activision’s Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 and Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed 3…

The games have come a long way from the earlier times when we used to buy simple discs for playing out sequenced formats one after the other. Just like a sale in the Holiday season, every game comes along with a bagful of ‘perks’ and ‘pre-order benefits’ for the gamer. As Fall 2012 approaches, gaming majors have raised their bar for promoting their own brands of the season. Starting off the proceedings, Activision’s Call of Duty series is offering a series of goodies at an additional price of 10 pounds including a Quadrotor drone prop for Xbox 360 players and an entry into the Black Ops 2 Perks Program sweepstake as well. A pre-order before August 5 will make them eligible to win a chance to visit Gamescom. Playstation 3 players can get a Quadrotor theme for themselves as well.

Pre-order benefits also include a Nuketown 2025 map on a 10 pound deposit. There are more to follow and you don’t have to worry if you have already made the pre-order and did not get any of these perks. You just have to shell out an extra 5 pounds to get the required deal. And if you think that your kitty is not yet full, then pick up the Assassin’s Creed III pre-order package through Newegg. You will get a straight 20 per cent discount on the retail price of the game. You can get the game for a cool 47.99 dollars as compared to 59.99 dollars offered by the manufacturer. Do remember to enter “EMCYTZT1964” as the promo code to get the discount. The game would have a release date of October 30, 2012 and besides the usual perk, Ubisoft is also planning to also promote a ‘post launch episodic content’ which is expected to the top of the line DLC, which is expected to ‘set the bar’ in the gaming industry.

Ubisoft, which is gaining a lot of publicity owing to its latest enterprise ‘Watch Dogs’ is now expected to give tough competition to its contemporaries with Assassin’s Creed III. The ‘Season Pass’ is another feature that is going to be part of this edition, which has lead to speculations that the game would be augmented through a series of DLC releases. This is expected to commence soon. The game has progressed nicely and its latest edition is expected to make the battleground tougher for established enterprises such as Red Dead Redemption as well. Ubisoft seems to picking up well on the ‘trail’ of other gaming majors and catching up on favorites such as Rockstar Games. But as the season begins, more pre-order goodies are being announced every day and as long as the ‘perks’ keep on increasing, I am not complaining! After all, these just keep the gaming clime more ‘perkier’!… Read the rest
