Assassin’s Creed 3 On PC, PS3, Xbox 360 & Wii U ‘The Same’
Assassin’s Creed 3 has “no lesser version” according to Ubisoft Montreal’s creative director Alex Hutchinson.
Talking to NowGamer at Gamescom, Hutchinson revealed “we’re just happy that it’s the same game on PC, PS3, Xbox 360 and Wii U.
“There’s no lesser version of our game for once,” he continued, “I think they’re all pretty much the same, it’s exciting that they’re pretty analogous. There’s no radical differences between all the platforms and I know that doesn’t sound good but that’s great.”
More specifically, Hutchinson then went on to discuss the Wii U and how the hardware is shaping up.
“We’ve had the hardware for quite a while now, but it’s always exciting to get new hardware – we’re all still gamers at heart and unboxing a brand new piece of kit is a cool moment.”
In development terms, however, Hutchinson said “It’s just fun to see a new controller. For me it’s a lot like the DS, you know ‘two-screens, what are you going to do with that?’ and it frees you up unusual ways.”
Hutchinson then mentioned how Assassin’s Creed 3 is utilising the Wii U controller’s screen for the game’s map, saying “it might not seem like a lot but it really does free you up in terms of playing: you don’t have to check where you’re going, you don’t have to check what’s happening there.
“It’s not exactly a massive change in how you’re playing.”
Sounds… err, exciting?
